Spring Has Sprung!

Finally!  The next week looks picture perfect for spring workouts, ranging from sunny and 55 to scattered rain showers and 70 degrees. Just one week ago I was wearing a jacket and long capri tights on my run, this morning?  I did an easy 3 miles in shorts and a tee.  It was 56 degrees … Continue reading

An Injury?!

Okay so I’m being a little dramatic with the exclamation point up there, but I may have pulled/overused my Achilles on my long run last week.  And BTW, it’s amazing how much free time you have even when you have a very minor injury… After my long run last week I felt a little “twinge” … Continue reading

Weekly Workouts: Week of 3/25/2013

Well, after experimenting with different workout schedules and with morning vs. evening running/gym time and just winging it with workouts, I’m happy to say that T and I have finally, finally found something that works! Source I need a schedule to follow or I’m like a lost puppy.  I need structure. The basic schedule formula: … Continue reading

Shrimp Tacos

Happy Monday! T and I had originally planned on grilling dinner last night, but since it was cold/snowy/rainy T made the decision to just saute the shrimp and heat the tortillas in the microwave.  It turned out so good, I can’t wait till we get to use the grill to make this recipe again. I got the … Continue reading

Is It Spring Yet?

Seriously, the first day of Spring was last week, and we had snow flurries….and right now, as I type this, there is a little FREEZING RAIN/SNOWING action going on outside. Source   I’m usually all about the cooler weather as long as possible, it can stay 50-60 degrees until July and I would be a … Continue reading

Quinoa and Roasted Veggies

Since we’re both busy will full-time jobs and school, T and I often don’t have time to make a different meal for dinner each night of the week.  We’re big on leftovers, and even bigger on making a big ol’ pot of something on Sunday and chowing down on it Monday through Thursday. This week … Continue reading

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

For a mid-day snack, I usually take carrots and homemade peanut butter, but this week I wanted to try something different: hummus and celery.  Hummus is the only thing that makes me eat celery, and since it’s nutritious, I’ll take it.  I usually like the brand Sabra, but since I’ve been making my own peanut butter, why not try a hummus … Continue reading

Breakfast Burritos

Apparently everyone ran a race over the weekend, and everyone got some crazy PRs (thank you for the motivation!!)… I, on the other hand cooked so much over the weekend I didn’t even get to blog about it. …Good thing I took pictures of all of the delicious homemade goodies.  The following is just one of the … Continue reading

Drug Rep Lunch Rant

It’s so nice to be back home in my own bed, but I am missing Seattle big time.  It was my first trip to the West Coast and I’m in love.  It’s a top contender in the ‘where to go next’ question.  T is agreeable. Back at the office this week temptation has been everywhere. … Continue reading
