Yoga Saturday and Giveaway Winner!

Saturday: 20 minute Power Vinyasa Flow #5

Sunday: will be … 5 miles with Amy

As soon as I publish this post, I will do this 20 minute YogaDownload video. I have been feeling sore lately, so I thought it would be better to push my run back a day and do a little yoga.  I like this one a lot and if you download the 20 minute video, it is free! I love trying them out first to see if I want to purchase a longer video later.


I’ve been trying to get organized with this buying your own groceries and cooking thing 🙂  I know that next week is going to be a tough start to the next few months with my 18 week Hal Higdon plan starting and my final grad class. I kinda came up with an excel chart to combine food, groceries and exercise.  I then hyperlink the recipe to the title so I can just click on it and see the recipe. So far it is going well.  When I didn’t plan, I would go to the grocery store two or more times because I would need to pick things up for a recipe I would find half way through the week. Last night I made black bean burgers that were fantastic.

I promise they taste good. I threw so much onto that roll and it could barely handle the tomato, avocado, pickles, daiya cheese and more.


The meatballs I made in the slow cooker earlier this week made a great sandwich and Colby was really happy to have meat. I used ground chicken and followed this Barefoot Contessa recipe.  I added some sweet potato fries too.

Don’t worry, I wasn’t too healthy this week. These things are my weakness. Hands down, best brownies ever. I’m not an ice cream/cake person, but I LOVE brownies.  Colby and I finished the pan in two days. That’s why I try not to make them all the time.


I found this hot cereal a month ago at a store for $1.99 and tried it out this morning. It was pretty good and cooked on the stove fast. I added some pb and banana and I’m full.  Look at me turning into a food blog… I promise I will have more running stuff to talk about next week when I start my training plan!
