5 Reasons Why Treadmill Running Is Good For Me Right Now

If you have read my blog before you probably know by now that I am not a fan of the treadmill. I run outdoors whenever possible and the 2-3 times a year when I do run on a treadmill I am miserable throughout the run and complain about it afterward. Over the past week I […]

Stuck At Home Again (WIAW)

Well, by the time this publishes it will be day 5 of being stuck inside my house.  Of course we have been out of the house shoveling more times than I would like to count. We also ventured to Fresh Market on Monday to pick up some more food and see what the world was like […]

Winter Came and Left Again?

What a weird week it’s been around here! It started with a nasty taste of winter, and ended with warmer temps once again. I don’t think I will ever get used to running in the cold this year if this trend keeps happening! I’m not complaining at all; it’s almost mid-January and the worst we have […]

Meal Planning and Prep {Week of 1/2-1/8}

It’s been a while since I shared a meal planning and prep post. I probably won’t get back to doing these regularly, but considering that meal prepping is one of my 2016 goals I thought this would be a good time to share what I did during the first week of the year. Maybe there are others […]
