food

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 [...]

At Fitbloggin I found out about this cool thing called a Foodie penpal.  It's like a penpal but instead of letters you send someone food.  I was matched up with Terra this month and it was both our first times doing the program.  We talked about our dietary restrictions and then we were left to [...]

I hope everyone is having a good day.  I think I'm a little worn out from my workout yesterday.  I'm feeling a little lazy so I'll take it. My mid-week long run turned out longer than I expected. Let me tell you, I didn't feel like I ran 8 miles until I tried to sneak [...]

Life is about finding balance right?  You may only think I'm doing active things or working out all the time but there's more to me than just that stuff.  BUT working out and BEING ACTIVE are FUN things for me.  Everyone once and a while I have to take a break and just enjoy life [...]
