Happy First Day Of Spring!!

Hahaha flowers like that don’t bloom this time of year here in the Midwest. I just really like this photo (I took it during our family vacation in Florida last July). There are a bunch of daffodils popping up around my neighborhood though, and some of them have started to bloom!

Anyway, we are starting to get some spring-like weather in my part of Kansas. The air is starting to warm up and it rained pretty much all day yesterday. That’s typical spring time weather. We really needed it though. Things were really dry here. Haha and I was pretty excited about that because I love rainy days and think that running in the rain is a lot of fun! πŸ™‚ And yesterday’s 3 miler did not disappoint! I got soaked pretty fast. I also got frostnip on my legs because it was in the low 40’s when I ran. I probably should have put on my wind pants over my running tights. They’re usually pretty good at keeping me relatively dry. But oh well, it really wasn’t that bad and the redness, itchiness, and irritation that came with that was all gone by this morning. That was still totally worth all the fun I had in the rain yesterday.

This morning’s run was nowhere near as fun though. I actually procrastinated doing it by making myself an actual decent breakfast. Who does that?!? Me apparently…

Usually in the morning I can’t be bothered to make anything exciting for breakfast. Sometimes I throw a few frozen, whole wheat waffles in the toaster and then slather them with peanut butter and honey. Other days I’ll just grab a piece of fruit and a cheese stick. Or on really lazy day’s I’ll just eat a Honey Stinger waffle along with my coffee. But I knew running wasn’t going to be very exciting today, so I took a little bit of extra time with my breakfast. I toasted some bread, spread some avocado on it, topped that with sliced, cherry tomatoes, and then fried an egg to go on that as well. Hahaha I know that doesn’t sound too difficult, but in the morning I never feel like putting that much effort into what I’m eating. πŸ˜‰

I did eventually go out and get my run done, though. My 5k training plan called for 2 easy miles followed by a couple of strides, but those 2 miles sure didn’t feel easy… It actually seems to me that most of the “easy” runs I do don’t actually feel easy. They tend to feel more like I’m running through cold molasses. Oh well, I still did it though! Well, the 2 miles. I kinda sorta skipped the strides. I just wasn’t feeling it enough to do those.

img_0469

But on the bright side, running seems to be going a lot better this week than it did last week! I know it’s only Tuesday, but I’m thinking the rest of the week is going to go pretty well. But maybe I’m only saying that because tomorrow is a rest day and then for Thursday my training plan calls for 30 minutes of cross training, so I wont actually have to run again until Friday. πŸ˜‰ But still, I’m a lot happier about running this week than I was last week, so at least that’s something. πŸ™‚

But anyway, now that spring is here I really need to start thinking about what I want to plant in my garden and I’m going to have to start tilling and preparing my soil here before too long. So far I know I’m definitely going to be growing my staples; tomatoes, banana peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, lettuce, and watermelon. I actually want to grow my vine plants on some kind of structure this year to help make weeding and harvesting a little bit easier. I’ve got a few ideas for that and Luke and I will be starting work on those soon. I also really wish I could get root vegetables to grow a little easier here, but they never do well because the soil here is so full of clay. A lot needs to be done to remedy that…Or you can do raised beds filled with good quality soil but those are kind of expensive to make. Maybe one day though. But for now we’re planning on sticking with plants that we know do well here.

img_6329.jpg

A small harvest from last summer. That watermelon was sooooo good!! Haha I’m on a mission to grow several really good watermelons this year! It seems like each year I’ve grown them I’ve gotten bigger, better melons. And usually a few more than the year before. So I guess I must be learning something! And hopefully if that trend keeps up, I should end up with 5 or 6 really good watermelons this year! πŸ™‚

Now with the addition of our 5 chickens, we should end up getting a pretty decent amount of food from our backyard this year! I’m so freaking excited about having fresh eggs! I can’t wait for my chickens to start laying!! They’ve still got a while to go before they get to that point though. They are doing very well and growing bigger and getting more feathers every day! And as it starts getting even warmer they’re going to be able to spend a little bit more time outside. So far they’ve only been out twice for about 10-15 minutes at a time, just to make sure they didn’t get too cold. But in maybe two or three weeks, as long as it’s warm enough, we’ll be able to move them outside permanently. Haha I have a feeling we wont get that lucky though, it’s probably still going to be pretty chilly in April. If they were fully grown the cold wouldn’t be much of an issue, but when they’re young it’s very important that they’re kept warm.

Oh man, between my garden, the chickens, training for my 5k in May, training for my half marathon in November, the dogs, rabbits, and all of my other critters, plus another vacation we’re going to be going on with Luke’s family, I’m going to be crazy busy this spring and summer! It should be fun though! And besides, I’d much rather be busy than bored. πŸ˜‰

That’s all I’ve got for today! But what about you?

What are you looking forward to this spring? Any exciting plans?

Do you grow a garden? What’s you’re favorite thing to grow?

Does your city allow you to keep chickens? Would you if you could?Β (Technically my city doesn’t allow you to do it without a permit, but when have I ever let rules stop me?!? Luckily my neighbors are cool with it though, so it should be fine. πŸ˜‰ )

Β I hope you’ve had a terrific Tuesday!

March 1st, 2018

The last few days have been kinda boring here in Colorado. Mostly because my dad and brother have to work, but also because my stomach has been kinda bothering me. Probably because I’ve lived off of Chinese food and pizza since Tuesday… As fun as that sounds it’s not doing my body any good. Haha my options were very limited though. But my dad and I went to the store last night and got stuff to make smoothies, Super Hero muffins, and all sort of good stuff like that. 😁

So I ended up spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen, but first I had to get a run in! πŸ˜‰ I hadn’t run in 2 days, so I figured I should today. I didn’t feel like going far though so “short and speedy” was the name of the game today. Although I’m not sure of you could actually call what I did speedy haha. Dealing with the elevation is still pretty tough (I’ve been told it can take several months to actually acclimate to it, and I’m definitely not going to be here for that long), so I just went with what felt hard and did 2 miles of intervals. So the elevation seems to wear me out pretty quick and like I said, I’m not feeling great from all of the junk food, so I ate a Honey Stinger waffle before this run. Not something I’d typically do before such a short run, but I like to think it helped. πŸ˜‰

 

 

 

After I got done with my run I showered and realized just how tired I was. Haha have I mentioned that the elevation wears me out? πŸ˜‰ So I napped for a little bit and then began my cooking/cleaning adventures. This morning my dad had started making this vegetable and chicken soup. It’s got butter nut squash, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, onions, beets, and obviously chicken in it. Super healthy, very tasty, but not very visually appealing haha. But anyway, I finished making that. All I had to do was run it through the blender, so I had the easy job. It took FOREVER though. Plus it was a super messy process, so cleaning up once I was done took a while too. I also made Super Hero muffins for my dad to try! Well, it’s more like a Super Hero cake, since they don’t have a muffin tin. But still just as tasty! Also less visually appealing than actual muffins though haha. πŸ˜‰

 

Other than running, napping, and cooking, I also spend quite a bit of time doing laundry, walking Niko, playing with Bella, and cleaning up around the apartment. So basically normal everyday things that I’d usually do at home and for different dogs/people haha. But it’s more exciting because it’s all in Colorado, right? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, earlier today I told my dad about a whisky 5k that’s held in Martin City (which is in the KC area where I live). He told me that’s literally the perfect 5k for him, since he loves whisky and his last name is Martin (and mine was too, before I got married haha). And every finisher gets a medal and a pint glass and since my dad kinda collects pint glasses (and other fancy glasses), I told him that we were gonna have to do it together. So we are! I’m so freaking stoked!! This’ll be his first official 5k and the first time I’ve had someone to run with during a race! It’s gonna be so much fun! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

img_0116

My dad’s gonna have to get a real pair of running shoes though. On Thanksgiving when we ran around the lake near his apartment he did it in work boots. Yeah, he said that wasn’t fun haha. I told him to go to a specialty running store and have them help him find a pair, so hopefully he has a chance to do that. I mean, he’s only got 10 days to get that done haha.

Whew! I’m super duper stoked right now!

I hope you’ve had a good Thursday!

Another Long Drive To Colorado

(I wrote this whole post on my phone, so the photos are probably going to end up being stacked and weird, instead of in nice little collages. Sorry about that.)

Alrighty! Like I said this morning, I ended up going to Colorado with my dad! He was in Illinois taking care of some stuff and stopped by my house last night on his way back home. He asked me if I was going with him, and obviously I did! 😊

So we left my house this morning a little before 10 am, after making sure all of the stuff on his trailer was secure. Haha and of course I’m repping all of my Honey Stinger gear. πŸ˜‰ I’ve also got some waffles packed for any running/hiking/adventuring that we end up doing.

So he drove for a while, stopped to get gas, saw a herd of zebras at one point (I’m not even kidding! It was crazy seeing a bunch of zebras in the middle of nowhere Kansas is) and we decided we were going to stop at Toto’s Tacos and a Wizard of Oz museum that we had tried to go to last time we went to Colorado together, but both were closed. It took us about an hour to get there, but we finally got our Toto’s Tacos and got to wander around the museum for a while.

^^ That is a guaco taco. It had so much guacamole on it. It was amazing!

After we had our full of the Wizard of Oz museum, we went to the historic Beecher Bible and Rifle Church. Haha we actually went there the last time we made this trip together, but it’s a cool church so we went back again. πŸ˜„

After that we did more driving. Well, my dad did all of the driving. I’m just along for the ride haha, but in all fairness, he’s driving a company truck so I can’t drive it. We spent a few hours looking at the rural scenery and pointing out neat stuff to each other. But around 4 ish we had to stop at a gas station so my dad could nap for a bit. We were both pretty tired at that point (although I didn’t nap haha). Me because riding in a car makes me super tired, and him because he did a lot of work in Illinois. But we were back on the road around 5 pm.

Around 6:40 we stopped in Wakeeney (I probably spelled that wrong) Kansas to get gas, snacks, and to go to a park with an old plane in it. Haha last time my dad and I made this trip together he made me get in it, so obviously I had to do it again. πŸ˜‰ Yeah, I definitely wasn’t supposed to be climbing in it haha.

After that little adventure we decided we were going to take the scenic route to my dad’s apartment. It added about an extra hour to the trip, and it was already pretty dark, but neither of us were in a hurry to get anywhere. πŸ˜„

After we stopped there we only stopped one more time for gas. Other than that we just continued onto Longmont Colorado. We finally got there at about 11:40 pm (12:40 pm in central time, which is the time zone we started the day in haha), ate a little bit, talked to my mom and brother,and now we’re getting ready for bed! I’m very ready for bed haha.

Your travel worn friend,

Weekly Recap: January 1st-7th, 2018

Welp, the new year has kinda gotten off to a rough start for me. I’ve been sick (again πŸ˜‘) and unable to do much running. Mostly because we’ve been stuck in single/negative temperatures and attempting to run in that with a sore throat is pretty freaking miserable. So I’ve mostly been focusing on rest this week, which is probably exactly what I need after all of the craziness, running around, alcohol, and super late nights that our Christmas adventures brought last week. But resting has been kinda nice. Luke took most of this week off from work, so we’ve been hanging out, playing video games, and cooking a few things from Run Fast Eat Slow. So that’s been fun!

Not gonna lie, watching everyone else getting to work on their goals for the new year has been a little bit torturous. I’ve got big goals that I want to start working on too! πŸ˜‚ But first I gotta get over this illness…

Monday (New Year’s Day):

  • 2 miles

I attempted to get a decent run in on Monday. But like I said, the super cold temps were not mixing well with my sore throat, so I had to call it at 2 miles. Haha I probably shouldn’t have even done that, but oh well. πŸ˜‰

img_8712

Tuesday:

  • Β Rest Day

Yeah, I woke up feeling even worse on Tuesday. Basically conferming the fact that I should have not run on Monday. But I mean, I had to start off 2018 with a run! πŸ˜‰ Anyway, Luke and I spent most of Tuesday at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, which is probably what I needed. I also spent a lot of time drinking apple cider vinegar and raw honey in warm water, because it’s good for colds/sore throats.

img_8723

Wednesday:Β 

  • Walked around the dog park

Started to feel a little bit better on Wednesday! Plus it was a little bit warmer (and by that I mean it was in the 20’s πŸ˜‰ ), so we took the dogs to the park so they could run around a little bit. And then for dinner we made the herb chicken, and miso soup from Run Fast Eat Slow! Haha I had to make a few changes to the soup; I couldn’t find any red miso at the store so I used white, and I used some nori sheets I had instead of having to buy wakame. It still ended up tasting really good though! I added some soba noodles and it ended up being the perfect dinner on a cold winter’s night. Oh and the chicken turned out really well too!! I just don’t have a photo of it. πŸ˜‰

img_8738-1

Thursday:

  • Rest Day

My throat was still sore on Thursday, but I was starting to feel like I was finally starting to get well again. I wonder if my delicious soup had something to do with that? πŸ˜‰ I didn’t want to push it though, so no running. But I did make some of the superhero muffins from Run Fast Eat Slow. Those turned out really well!!!

Friday:

  • 3 miles

Was feeling much better by Friday, so I decided to get a nice 3 miler done. It was about 18 degrees out and by the end of it my throat was starting to hurt a little bit again. But when I was about a mile in some guy wearing a veteran hat, while walking a Chihuahua that was wearing a pink sweater called me tough. So I mean, that was great. πŸ™‚

img_8759

Saturday:

  • Easy peasy 20 minute run (1.5 miles)
  • 10 minutes on the stationary bike
  • 20 minutes of yoga

Still sniffling and sneezing on Saturday, but as a whole I was feeling a lot better! Haha tired, but better. πŸ™‚ Almost didn’t run though. Like I said, I was tired, and it was still pretty cold out and I was worried about my throat starting to hurt again…But when I checked the weather I saw that we were supposed to get some freezing rain on Sunday, so I decided I needed to get a short run in since I probably wouldn’t be able to the next day. I’m glad I did it. πŸ™‚

img_8777

Sunday:

  • Rest Day

Basically just trying to get back into my usual scheduled, which means taking Sunday as a rest day. πŸ™‚ The freezing rain actually just turned out to be a really really cold rain, so the roads weren’t at all bad like I was worried they’d end up being. So I ended up taking all of the dogs for walks in the rain. Haha not like they mind! Probably not the best decision for me, since I’m attempting to get over this cold, but I love me some rainy weather!! πŸ™‚

So yeah, it’s definitely been an interesting week haha. Glad I’m finallly feeling better and I’m super excited to really get started on my goals for this month and this year!

I hope everyone had a good week!

Happy (Late) Birthday To Me!!

Well, not that late. Hahaha it was only yesterday. πŸ˜‰ I definitely felt an outpouring of love yesterday from all of my family and friends, both in real life and here on the interwebs. πŸ™‚

Anyways, I had a great day! I started it with a run! Yay! Haha I wasn’t sure if running 4 days after running a half marathon was going to be a good idea for me. After my previous 2 half marathons I took about 2 weeks of running to rest and recover and it was great! But this time around I didn’t feel like waiting that long. So I figured my birthday would be a good day to test out how my legs felt! So I ran for about 30 minutes (which ended up being around 2.2 miles). My legs felt a little stiff, sore, and tired, but it wasn’t too bad. Plus I had a lot of fun and that’s really all that matters. πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

After my run I showered/bathed Finn. That’s always a fun time…He’s 10 months old, so he’s a whole lot of young, dumb, impatient, and whiny, in a full grown dogs body. So what I’m saying is that I had to hold his wiggly ass in between my knees (luckily I’ve got strong, runner’s legs πŸ˜‰ ), while I scrubbed him down and rinsed him off, because he can’t just stand there and take it, he actively tries to escape the shower. I also had to scrub mud off of his penis and testicles because he was just coated in it. Haha I definitely didn’t plan on getting all up in that dogs business that day, but hey, it happens. πŸ˜‰

img_7652

He was not happy with me after his bath.

I guess that was a little bit of a side tangent, so lets get back to birthday stuff! Luke’s dad and step-mom sent me the BEST birthday card ever. Seriously, I love it! The cat on it looks just like Bubbles and who doesn’t want a cat with lazer eyes lighting their birthday candles?

img_7654

I also got quite a few texts and a call from my grandma, so I actually spent most of the afternoon talking to my family. It was nice. πŸ™‚ One of my sisters is doing very well at her new nursing job and has already been offered a better position along with a raise. My other sister is currently in the process of buying aΒ crazyΒ nice house with her husband, who just recently got back from deployment. If she didn’t live 10 hours away I’d definitely be at that house all the time hahaha. πŸ˜‰ And my dad, who is legit the coolest, most awesome, and funnest dad ever, is gonna run a 5k with me on Thanksgiving!! Originally I asked him if he’d do a mile with me to kick off the Runner’s World Run Streak and he’s the one who suggested we do a 5k instead! My dad’s not really a runner so I was super surprised about that, but obviously I told him that would be even better! We looked online for a turkey trot to sign up for, but every turkey trot that was actually on Thanksgiving day was over an hour away from where they live, so we didn’t want to spend that much time driving on Thanksgiving, so were just gonna run around the lake near his apartment instead. It’s still gonna be lots of fun though and I’m so super excited!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

img_7687

I like to think that my dad and I are very similar people. πŸ™‚Β 

So while I was talking to my family Luke had asked me where I wanted to go to eat for dinner. Haha he said originally he wanted to surprise me, but he wanted to tell me we were going out so that I didn’t make dinner and because he wanted to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. I appreciated that because I was literally about to start cooking hahah. Anyways, all I wanted was tiramisu (which is a weird thing to want I guess, but I’ve been thinking about tiramisu all week haha), so we ended up going to a nice Italian restaurant for dinner. I got an amazing order of eggplant Parmesan that came with really good herb pasta, and of course I got my tiramisu and it was fantastic! After we ate Luke set me loose in a bookstore. Luckily for him (because that could have takenΒ forever) I already knew exactly what I wanted, and it didn’t take me long to find it. πŸ™‚

img_7686

I’m so excited to read this!!!Β 

After our dinner and bookstore adventure, we stopped at the liquor store to get drinks and then we went home and spent the rest of the night sipping our drinks and watching Who’s Line Is It Anyway? Well, Luke sipped his drink, I ended up drinking a whole bottle of wine hahaha. In all fairness though, Luke egged me on! He kept telling me it’s my birthday and I might as well, and asked me a few times if I was gonna finish the damn thing. So I did.

And last but not least, at some point yesterday morning, I learned that Victoria’s Secret’s Pink isΒ finallyΒ selling leggings with pocket!! As a person who never wears “real” pants and for real lives in leggings and yoga pants, this was legit the best discovery ever! So Luke ordered me a pair as a birthday gift, and they’ll be here later this month. I seriously can’t wait! I could absolutely use more pockets in my life!!!

img_7655

Oh man, it was such a good day! πŸ™‚ Although I’m definitely paying the price for drinking all of that wine! Woke up with a headache and dry mouth, but it’s all good and was totally worth it. πŸ˜‰

So many exciting things have already happened this month and we’ve still got Thanksgiving too look forward to! This is why I love the month of November, there’s just always a bunch of fun stuff going on.

Anyways, happy Friday eve everyone! I hope you all have a great day!!

What I Ate Wednesday: 4/12/15

Fucking Finn decided to wake up at 4:30 in the morning…and then proceed to whine and cry until 6. He didn’t want to eat or drink or go outside. He just wanted to get up and for everyone else to be up with him. Around 6:30 I finally got him to quit being needy and go outside and play with Dean while I made and ate breakfast, and then around 8 am he came back inside and all he wanted to do was cuddle and sleep. Little bastard.

img_2791

On top of Finn waking everyone up super early, I spent most of the night tossing and turning so that really sucks. I tend to over eat and eat a bunch of junk the day after a not so great night’s sleep. And unfortunately that tends to happen to me a lot. For the most part, if I can fall asleep I’m usually good (although that’s not always true), but falling asleep tends to be really hard for me. Both of my sisters have the same problem and I think my mom does too, so maybe its a genetic thing. Does anyone have any tips on how to make falling asleep easier that doesn’t involve medication? I’ve tried melatonin supplements before but they didn’t really do much for me. Chamomile tea definitely helps me relax, but it’s never really helped me sleep. Same with pretty much every “bed time yoga” video there is on YouTube. It just really sucks that something so necessary and important is so hard to accomplish.

Anyways, I figured a “what I ate Wednesday” post would be a good idea. At the very least it helped me stay accountable and not go completely off the wall with my eating just because I’m tired.

Breakfast:

  • french toast (2 slices of whole wheat bread, 1 egg, 1/4 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and some cinnamon, fried in 1 tbs coconut oil)
  • black coffee

I figured a little treat was in order for this morning, so I made myself some french toast. All things considered though, french toast really isn’t all that bad. I mean, obviously mine had a good amount of sugar in it, but it had a little bit of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats, so all in all, not a bad way to start the day!

img_2805

Lunch:

  • tri colored rotini with tomato/basil/garlic pasta sauce

I probably should have added some veggies to that, but I didn’t so whatever.

img_2807

After lunch I walked all 3 dogs then spent 25 minutes on my stationary bike. According to my training scheduled, I was supposed to cross train for an hour but I got super bored around 23 minutes so I quit at 25 haha. Oh well, at least I crossed trained for a little bit. πŸ™‚

Snack:

  • fresh pineapple
  • A nature valley oats and honey bar

img_2810Dinner:

  • protein shake (1 frozen banana, scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 cup vanilla soy milk)

I kinda forgot how good a nice cold protein shake could be on a warm day. Honestly a smoothie would have been better, but aside from frozen bananas I don’t have any smoothie fixing. So I guess that’s just going to have to wait for my next grocery trip. 

I am literally the world’s worst selfier. πŸ˜‚

I suppose all in all that’s not too bad for a day of eating! As usual eating enough vegetables is my biggest downfall. But veggies are just no fun! I’d rather eat fruit or French toast haha. Oh well, at least I didn’t eat a bunch of junk or anything. πŸ˜ƒ
 

 

What I Ate Wednesday: 3/15/17

I’ve been doing a lot better food-wise since my last “What I Ate Wednesday” post. I did have a bunch of pizza and a few beers one night, but other than that things have been pretty good! I’ve even lost 2 pounds! Not bad, if you ask me. πŸ™‚ I’m definitely headed in the right direction in setting healthier eating habits.

Breakfast:

  • Sausage/egg sandwich (breakfast sausage and 1 scrambled egg on 2 slices of whole wheat bread).
  • Coffee with 1/2 cup soy milk, 2 tbs honey, and 1 tbs coconut oil.

Post-run/Pre-strength workout snack:

  • 1 chocolate Honey Stinger Waffle

This was my last chocolate flavored waffle. Sad face. Oh well, I still have a bunch of honey flavored waffles, and those are really good too! πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

Lunch:

  • Cabbage and cauliflower roasted with 1 tbs olive oil, and some chicken.

img_2247

Afternoon Snack:

  • Peanut butter/honey sandwich (2 tbs peanut butter and 1 tbs honey on 2 slices of whole wheat bread).

img_2224

Dinner:

  • 1 cup of plain Cheerios with 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, 1 tbs chia seeds, and 1 tbs honey.

Ok, but yogurt mixed with cereal is sooo good!!

img_2249

Evening Snack:

  • Another cup of Cheerios 
  • A couple of clementines 

I don’t have a picture of either, but whatever. πŸ˜‰

Ok so I eat a lot of honey haha. But I have a horrible sweet tooth, and I figure honey is a much better alternative to excessive amounts of sugar, or high fructose corn syrup, or any of those artificial sweeteners. I mean, at least it’s good for you. Plus I usually get raw, local honey (the stuff I currently have is local, but not raw unfortunately), so at the very very least I’m helping to support my local bee keepers! And I’m seriously all about that life! I keep telling Luke we need to plant all sort of bee friendly flowers in our landscaping, but we just haven’t gotten around to it yet..Anyway, all in all I’d say I made some good choices today. πŸ™‚

Edit:

So like 5 minutes after I typed the sentence about us not getting around to planting bee friendly plants in our landscaping, my mother in law sent me a message on Facebook about the neat thing Cheerios is currently doing. They are giving away  wildflower seed packets for free (seriously, they are 100% free, I didn’t even have to pay for shipping)! So I officially don’t have an excuse to not have bee friendly flowers in my garden anymore. I love bees and I love Cheerios, so I’m so freaking stoked about this right now! Go get your free seed packet here and help #bringbackthebees! 🐝
