A little of this, a little of that and every day, a little less of me. :)

#EasterEscapade complete! Oh my flippin hills. I hate hills, I despise hills, but we conquered the hills an stayed close to out time last race. I’m wondering what my time might have been had the course been flat? Either way I feel accomplished and pleased with my progress. ☺️ 

I also met up with the lovely @skinnyanddelicious for the first time after meeting her through IG. I love being able to meet new peeps and I look forward to the future races we’ll be at. 😁

'Twas a long day, yet no excuses to be had. πŸ˜‰

Yes I am SUPER special and my husband let me out of the house like this…and as the fates would have it we walked upon a newly acquainted neighbor. DOH! πŸ‘€

2.2 miles done and now for some sleepy sleep! Super excited to take a friend grocery shopping tomorrow and give her a taste of what I do when shopping for clean goods.

This morning my buddy came over to lift and I needed it. I’ve been jonesing to workout and FINALLY just said screw it and got to work. I’m on the mend, no weeping from my arm, so why not? I also have had enough time to re-think my plan and strategize how to get back to running where I was last year. 

I have my plan and will be putting it in place this afternoon and getting back to logging some miles. In the mean time, if you’re local and want to join in on the fun this is my 2014 race schedule! 

Three races down…Thirteen to go. 😊 In a way, this is its own #TransformationTuesday. I didn’t run my first race until September 2012 and it was a 10k! Now look at me…16 races in one year? That blows my own mind. 😜

If you’re interested in a particular race, comment and I’ll post registration info. And I am a 100% firm believer in the Bodies Race Company Healthy Holiday Series; they are my fav hands down.

#SundayFunDay 

All prepped up with no where to go. 😒
Here’s the plan for the next couple of days, not listed is the fruit bowls in the upper pic. Love me some natural fruit! πŸπŸ“πŸπŸ“

Questions? Let me have ‘em!

Alright #FitFam I need your help. I love couscous. Hands down it’s my fav next to quinoa. So for variety I try to mix it up and cook pearl couscous and for the life of me it doesn’t seem to come out “right.”

I cook 2c couscous to 4c liquid & it always comes out somewhat congealed. Is this the correct texture? I guess I assumed it would be more like its granular counterpart in regards to texture. 

⚠️ HELP!!! ⚠️

While I’m out of service for a while  I worked on my prep plan. I tend to prep every 3 days or so. My favorite ingredient, currently, is minced garlic. I just love garlic and hate mincing it myself. So, buying it 1) in bulk and 2) already minced saves me time during meal prep. 

What shortcuts do you take to keep the meal prep workload down?

This afternoon I made Pearl Couscous, Mixed Veggies, Green Beans, Parmesan Broiled Chicken and still have Smokehouse Maple Chicken in the crock. πŸ˜‹

All prepped up this evening. Inside ye shall find:

πŸ‘ Salmon, Rice & Asparagus
πŸ‘ Chicken & Corn
πŸ‘ Chicken & Normandy Blend
πŸ‘ Ground Turkey & Asparagus
πŸ‘ Spaghetti with Beef
πŸ‘ Angus Hamburgers
πŸ‘ Egg & Turkey Muffins
πŸ‘ Strawberries
πŸ‘ Grapes
πŸ‘ Blueberries
πŸ‘ Pineapple

And this will last me and the hubs three days and I’ll do it all over again. 

Do you prep? Do you enjoy being prepared for success? I do. 😁
