Finally Getting Better!

Hello!  I hope everyone’s Tuesday went speedy.  I finally got all kiddos healthy enough to go back to school today so my day went by too fast.
Sickness has plagued our house for nearly 3 weeks.. and last Friday landed the one of the twins in the ER for a possible appendixitis.  Luckily all results came back negative and 2 bags of fluid later they let us go home.  I have vowed to get us healthy, as this is the worst we have had it in years! 
My new year goals have not been happening, which is disappointing. I have so far managed 3.5 miles this year 😦  but this week I will make my 10 mile goal. I know I can!
Random food I have eaten:

I did not eat that plate of eggs myself, I swear!  The mini mouse cupcaks were for my sisters birthday and my frosting is beyond addicting. 
Another awesome thing that came last week was my moon jogger goodies.

I am totally in love with this shirt and got many questions about it today.  The metal (my first of the year- for the year) is really awesome and heavy… if someone broke into my house I could use it to cause bodily harm if needed. 
Honestly though, If you run, you should really check into moonjogger.com it is really worth the money to join!

’till next time!

Running, Gardening, & Food

Good afternoon! Yesterday started bright early.  I was out on my run by 8 am!  That is unheard of, but with these warmer days I realize my 11 am run is going to be way too hot in a few weeks.  My jog went fabulous!  I ran for 31 minutes straight!!!  *my goal was 30 min*

I’ve also been working feverishly in the garden..

image

Shoveled out 2 truck loads of manure ALL BY MYSELF!  It makes me so excited for the growing season 🙂 because that means food!  And food makes me so happy!

Speaking of food, let’s get to my eats yesterday:

Breakfast: fried egg w/ banana and almond butter

image

Lunch: more egg salad.. it just hits the spot!

image

Dinner:  was brilliant on my part!  I threw chicken breast, onions, bell peppers, coconut milk, ground ginger, curry, a bit of water in my dutch oven and tossed it in the oven @ 300 degrees.  When I got back from soccer I made up some cauliflower rice and dove in!

Yummy! 

I have so much to do to get ready for the twins birthday party on Sunday. Sometimes I don’t know why I torture myself with such tasks?!? …Love. it is all for love.

Wednesday weigh in

Today was uber productive!  I busted out an awesome 45 min run, weeded/tilled part of the garden, rocked soccer practice, did 3 loads of laundry (folded and put away)…. And now with a full belly I’m toast!  
This is all good for me because I am a horrible procrastinator. 

image

…Or the day after that! Really, no hurry.

My eats:
Breakfast: paleo granola with coconut milk.

image

Lunch: Fried egg on top of a yam with sprouts.

image

I was so hungry by this point that I ate a bunch of grapes while my egg cooked.  I hate when I get that hungry…

Snack: banana chip granola bar with my leftover coffee

image

Dinner:  grain free chicken pot pie, spinach salad with homemade Italian dressing.

image

This is the pot pie I was worried about freezing (now I question why I bothered freezing it when we ate it so soon). It froze great, defrosted awesome, warmed up fabulous… Crumbled on cutting! That’s grainless crust for ya. It was a bit dry – note to self add more liquid next time!

My workout:
I already said that I went for a 45 minute run, but what I didn’t mention is that I had some company… Kids!  The little men of the house accompanied me.  One twin made it to the end of the driveway, and the other 2 did about a mile. 

image

If you have acreage you gotta get a Great Pyrenees!  Best dogs ever. Pain in a ass (stubborn), but worth it!  I don’t have to say anything he just stays with them.

Weigh in:
Drum roll….
