The Kind Diet another cookbook I LOVE! Yes it is also vegan and but there are some delicious recipes in here! There are a handful I make over and over and over that I just love!!!

Leftover chili with bread for lunch today. So delicious!

One of the residents where I work had their freezer break and thaw out so they needed to use up the meat that was in there ASAP, lucky for me they aren’t eating red meat right now so tonight Brandon and I will be BBqing a new York stead with grilled zucchini and mashed potatoes! And we will have lamb burgers tomorrow…..I’ve never had a lamb burger so we will see but I want gonna say no to free food!!!

It turned out soooooo good!!!!

I got the hw that is due tonight all done and worked ahead on tomorrow’s HW. I’m one day ahead now, I wish I was more ahead though. I will need to work on that for next quarter.

Stats for this week:

Cant wait to see what next week holds!!!

Not included in those stats:

My first tempo run tonight!!!!

It was only 1 mile but I didn’t walk at all and was under the pace I wanted so yay!!!

I am going to train properly for this half marathon……did I mention Brandon and I signed up for a half marathon the first weekend in October?

Life Changes and So Must We

Hi!!!!! I originally set this blog up to chronicle my journey hiking the PCT, AT and CDT but plans changed. While that is still a goal for me one day, my foreseeable plans have changed so I thought the blog needed a bit of an updated look.

My life is now about becoming a nurse, getting back into shape and turning our quarter acre plot of land into a little farm, or at least as much of a farm as he will let me hahahahaha!!!!

There will still be hiking, running and food posts plus so much more! I hope you will continue this journey with me!

I only worked out twice this week! I started a new fitness program and I pushed it a little too hard. I tweaked my knee, taped it Tuesday evening. It’s still a little funky but its doing much better. Wednesday I took the tape off my knee and then taped my calf.

I was sort of a hot mess. I did an arm workout on Thursday then didn’t work out again the rest of the week. So happy Monday and I am starting from the beginning again! But I won’t go crazy tonight and reinjur my knee and calf.

How was your week?

My blueberry mixture turned out more like blueberry cookie dough, maybe because I used 1/3 butter and 2/3 crisco (I ran out of butter) so instead of mini loaf pans I stuck it in a shallow rectangle pan and make them slightly healthier cookies. Heat them up later with some ice cream!!!

I also bought a cantaloupe and cut that up for snacks this week.

Did you food prep this week?
