I am loving this rain we have been getting! I love gloomy days. Do you?

I have been doing great with my workouts this past week. I have not missed a beat. I have two weeks left of P90X 2. I am not sure what I am going to do next. I will be starting my 1/2 marathon training in June, which is pretty soon holy crap. I am excited, but I am getting pretty nervous.

I have SO many workout dvd’s I won’t have a problem finding something to do on my off training days. I will probably mix strength training and stretching or yoga.

I started a challenge group last week. We focused on clean eating and sticking to a workout routine. I will wrap it up on Friday. I hope they come out of the challenge a little wiser and more aware of what it takes to keep your body running properly. If you are interested in a challenge group or you would like a private one-on-one session, please let me know. I would be honored to be a part of your journey. Just go to my Facebook and send me a message.

I am getting back into my groove! I am so freakin’ sore, but that’s a good feeling though. According to the scale I am 60 pounds lighter than I was last year before I got a brain and started taking care of myself.

Cooking has been fun this week because I can make what I want. Still keeping it healthy and as clean as possible. I am back to having my beloved Shakeology for lunch again. SO happy about that! I have been making them with almond milk, water, ice, PB2, and a quarter of a banana.

I have been eating fresh fruit for breakfast and snacks. Except this morning, I had oatmeal. I was in the mood for something warm, so I switched it up a bit. Because I’m crazy like that.

Dessert last night.

I was prepping for supper and I was thinking about all the work that goes into cooking a healthy meal. Now, it doesn’t bother me, but I can see how it can discourage people, especially if they are not big on cooking. My biggest tip is organization. After you come home from the store wash all of your produce and store on the shelves in your refrigerator. I like to put the foods I use the most in a basket. I usually use onions, peppers, carrots, zucchini, and cucumbers in almost every meal I make. So I have all of these in a basket and I can just grab it and get to work. I don’t have to dig around in the crisper and search through all the plastic bags. This is much more efficient and fun. Plus, it makes your fridge look fancy inside…

Tonight’s dinner was somewhat of a miracle. I made homemade spaghetti sauce. I made a separate batch for Tyrell with some meat. The sauce had zucchini, green and red peppers, mushrooms, garlic, onion, and carrots. All over organic whole wheat angel hair pasta. I also made a big spinach salad.

The miracle occurred sometime around 5:30 pm. My son, I repeat, MY son, ate this meal with me. If you know Maddox, you know he is the pickiest eater ever. The best part, he kept picking out the tomatoes and zucchini. Moms, you have to understand where this excitement comes from. May not seem to be much to some, but to me, it was a miracle! Keep it healthy. Amen.

Good Life

19 Mar

Good Life. Not only is this one of my favorite songs (One Republic, listen to it) these two words come to my mind every day. I don’t want to get all sappy, but every morning when I wake up I think to myself how blessed I am that I get to open up my eyes and see, that I am warm in my own bed in my own house, that my husband is next to me (when he doesn’t fall asleep on the couch), and that my son is safe, healthy, and warm in the next room.  I don’t ever want to take that for granted. Nor should anyone. Count your blessings every day. So many of us only think of blessings when life has us down and out. We shouldn’t think like that. Every day, thank God for what you have and who you have. Make your life a good life. OK, I am jumping off of my podium now.

Anyways! More importantly…I bought some new shoes 😉 My feet and legs were starting to get pretty crabby after my last few runs. So, off to Bismarck I and my little side-kick went. How long will my son willingly go shopping with me? It was just a crazy day. I walked into the mall and realized my short-sleeve cardigan was inside out for the world to see. So, I slipped into an aisle and switched it around. What an idiot. I told my brother and he said, “that’s my sister.”

Running schedule is coming along too! I am in the middle of the fourth week I believe. It is so crazy how much I improve every time I go out.

I am also on my third week of P90 X 2. I run on my rest days and I squeeze one more in when I can. I always go on and on about the workout program I am currently doing, but let me just say, Beachbody really hit a home run with this one. I can’t believe how amazing I feel when I am done with each workout. They are definitely not easy, but that just wouldn’t be any fun if they were. Have you ever heard of a foam roller? No? Ok, you need to go to my shopping tab and my Beachbody store and take a look. I never heard of a foam roller before this program. I now have two. One for my workout room and one for my living room upstairs. Might as well be doing something while I’m watching Frasier or the Golden Girls. What? The 90’s are over? Says who?
