2) My training plan has me run 4 days a week. This week thus far I have gotten 2 runs in- so half way there. Thank goodness last year we took the plunge and purchased a treadmill, it has been such a time savior. Time savior?? Yes, as in it gives me the availability to run whenever I want, despite the cold or hot weather that we may be having. Last year I either had to wait to run outside or head off to the gym. Now whenever- so this week 3 miles on Tuesday 27:41 4 miles today 37:48
3 and a 9 miler left.
I have so been lacking motivation lately (to run) . But you know what is funny, as soon as I found the motivation to actually get my run in, it has boosted the rest of my day and I am just moving along.
3) If you followed my blog from the beginning you would remember that my family had a HUGE garden that we canned and or froze. Eating healthy is a big deal to us. Dont get me wrong we do indulge every now and then but we try not to do often. As I have been cruising around bloggy land I noticed that alot of people have been talking about food and what they eat . So I thought I would start a new section, recipes/ meals that we eat. One of my kids new years resolutions was to try new foods this year- so far we have tried Rutabaga, Dried Apricots, Prunes, Kiwi, Guacamole and Quinoa. We have had mixed reviews on the above mentioned. I made Honey Quinoa Bread the other day- WOW, was it amazing, everyone really likes it.
We do make alot of things from scratch and in bulk (so that we can freeze them to be used later). Right now I have a double batch of Cinnamon rolls going . This recipe I altered a little and mixed it half white flour and half wheat flour ( no one can tell the difference). I am making and freezing most them to be pulled out one at a time. But to make them a little more healthier I dont put on the icing ( I know that is the best part, but I think that they are sweet enough)
|This is only half of what was made- the other half never even got cooked, they went directly in the freezer.|
Tonight's dinner, is Stuffed Pasta shells (using leftover chicken , ricotta cheese , Parmesan cheese) topped with homemade spaghetti sauce.
If anyone has any healthy recipes, I would love to try them.
Have a Thankful Thursday.
