food

It's the new year and everyone is jazzed about hitting the gym to workout. That's not the only part about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  In fact, working out might actually be the easy part because maintaining a healthy diet in a world of unhealthy convenient options can be tough. I'm going to be doing several [...]

I had no skin in the game here.  I just ran the Mississippi Blues Marathon the week before and I just wanted to finish.  I won't lie when I tell you, I chose to run the marathon so I could eat some of the delicious food at the finisher festival.  Spoiler alert:  I was too [...]

The day after Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I was hosting this year which took up a lot of time.  It was hard to keep up with everything and keep blogging.  I'll give you the short version of the holiday.  On Wednesday night, we had a little get together with some friends.  I didn't get [...]

Yep I was sick!  That's all I could talk about but I'm glad that it's passed.  I actually want to get moving again.  I guess the best thing about getting sick was it happened after a marathon which forced me into rest/recovery mode.  Things are almost back to normal but I can't hear out of [...]

The things I’m not…

It's time for me to snap out of some things and I'm really trying to refocus the blog to where it needs to be.  I just finished reading The Happiness of Pursuit and the book has completely changed my world and I think it's starting to change Willie's world too.  My point: I want to [...]

Hello my friends!  I'm boring this week.  I'm living for the little things.  I've been really busy at work (both jobs) so I have been looking forward to spending a minute at home.  Meal prep happened very quickly this week by eating some old favorites.  But I was looking forward to making something with my [...]

The king of grocery shopping

I spent the weekend with my best friend in Mississippi while Willie stayed behind to handle the dogs!  He also had to handle the grocery shopping so that we could successfully handle the Sunday meal prepping. For the record, my husband is AMAZING! I got to enjoy views like this and he got to take [...]

How is everyone doing this week? How is your refrigerator feeling this week? It's Thursday so our fridge is starting to empty out which got me thinking about some things I can't get enough of lately. I love pumpkin, Willie hates it. That's fine. That means I can eat all the pumpkin and not have [...]

This week I haven't really be into anything.  My mind is on Denver next week which kind of made this week kind of blah for me. I haven't been motivated to do much so I've kind of just been off.  I probably just needed a little a reality break though.  I've still done my weekly [...]

Good morning everyone!  I hope the weekend is starting off just right for you.  Guess what I did this morning? I ran my taper run this morning. Taper is a blessing and a curse because I've been on a running high (mileage) lately but now it's time to wind that down because the 26.2 is [...]
