That is dedication 

Howdy!!! How is your day going?

It’s snow all around over here

It started last night I am guessing somewhere around 6:30-7pm. I looked out around 6 and it was raining then I stepped outside at 8:45 to drive to the gym and this was what I saw

Still i had a workout to get to. I drove to the gym with little incident until the street the gym was on I almost got stuck. But I was there and my plan was to watch Bones while I ran……but it was snowing so heavy the TV’s were out, that made me pause. I was there so I busted out a mile on the treadmill then hightailed it out of there because I knew the longer i waited the more difficult it would be to get home. 

I slipped and slid and got stuck once or twice but I kept my cool (thank you Nevada for teaching me how to drive in the snow in a small sedan hahahhaha)

I got home and let her run a bit, she loves the snow until she stops running and she gets cold

Then it was pasta time!

And a relaxing movie before bed

When i woke up, it was STILL SNOWING! 

It was beautiful outside…..until i realized i had no cream for coffee…..how do i study without coffee???!!! The snow had stopped coming down so i walked the 1.5 miles round trip to the store. That was my workout for today lol. I definitely worked up a sweat, walking through inches of snow is a workout. 

It was beautiful 

I made it back and it’s study time

I have taken over the coffee table

You’ve got water, coffee, syllabus, bio book, anatomy flashcards, a yummy smelling candle from my man and of course my personal training book in my lap. 

Artemis romped around in the snow a bit when i got back from the store and now she’s passed out hahaha!!

Dinner tonight is a delicious turkey stew i made a few months ago and threw some extra in the freezer. 

What is on your schedule for today?

Day 1 back to school!

I had a nice easy morning. I finally finished the last chapter in my personal training certification program, now i do some extra studying for the next 1.5 weeks and schedule the exam. 

In the afternoon I had my first lab for biology 101

After class i had a healthy snack

And headed to the gym. Got in a 2.5 mile run

Did some speed intervals 

Dinner was leftover beef and brocolli 

Found the recipe on pintrest 

It was delicious. 

I hoped into bed early and put in a movie

A little sex and the city movie on my ancient but still thankfully functioning TV. 

I had a little snack of doritos and croutons lol

This weekend I am hitting the bulk bins at Winco to make myself a healthy-ish and delicious trail mix to snack on. 

And now its early to bed so I can early to rise for my 8am class. 

Have you worked out lately?

Any new life adventures for you?

Weekend Wrap-up

So I ran 5 days in a row last week then took Thursday off, Artemis and I took a little walk

It was cold but beautiful 

Anatomy studying 

Enjoyed a cup of coffee out of my new Starbucks ‘You are Here’ mug. I went to Peru 6ish years ago but didn’t hit a Starbucks while I was there because I wasn’t collecting these mugs yet, so my awesome roommate brought me one back when she travelled there over the holidays. 

Friday the boyfriend, the dog and I set out for a 2-3 mile run but i hadn’t waited long enough after a big lunch which resulted in me dry heaving on the side of the road. So the BF dropped me and the dog off at home and he headed out for another 3 miles lol. 

Saturday it snowed so instead of running we headed out and played in the snow with the Artemis. She loved to run. 

Saturday night we cooked and watched some movies. 

Today is a lovely lazy day before I start cramming for the personal training certification exam. I need to take it in about 2 weeks and in other news……

I start back to school tomorrow!!! I am only taking 1 class this quarter, Biology 101. My plan is to go to school part time for the next 2 years so I can still work while I do all my prerequisites then I will apply to a doctorate of physical therapy program. 

I’ll keep you posted. 

How was your weekend?

I fell asleep before I could post this

5 days in a row running!!!

I am pretty sure this is the first time I have ever run 5 days in a row in my life!! Woohoo!! 

My heart rate stayed pretty high which was nice but I was tired, 5th day in a row made me tired so i fought for every step of my short two miles 

This was the rest of my day

Some HTGAWM (I can’t believe that is an actual acronym that is used, it’s way too long)

How To Get Away With Murder

And a healthy snack, getting back to good eating

I forgot how amazing this tastes. 

How was your day? 

What is the longest consecutive number of days you have run?

Holiday catch up

My last few days:

Lots of studying 

Mixing in some fun studying 

Still continuing my Gray’s Anatomy bindge 

I made the bf my favorite family breakfast, it’s basically chipped beef on toast, my dad called it SOS and he learned it in the military. 

Artemis liked it too


I ordered some awesome anatomy flashcards to study from

Had another great breakfast 

Really enjoying the sight of my bf’s running shoes by the door. 

And 4 days in a row of running!!! Yay!

How was your Holiday?

Study, study, study

Today consisted of studying and watching Gray’s Anatomy. 

I got through 2 chapters for my personal training certification and realized i need some help with all the anatomy stuff. I should be finished with the book by the end of next week or the Monday after but I need to do some serious catch up with anatomy then I need to do some major reviewing. 

Today i ordered some study material to help me

I can’t wait for them to arrive!!!

Tonight after the studying I took a little break and practiced some Spanish 

Now I am in bed watching a little Harry Potter to fall asleep to

Goodnight. 

Do you speak any other languages?

If you could, what other language would you like to learn?

Blue Apron day 2 and studying

Happy Hump day!!! The week is now more than half over, woot woot!!

This morning I got the call that i wasn’t needed for package delivery today…….HALLELUJAH!!!!!! My right forearm and right butt cheek have noce bruises on them from a good fall yesterday.  

I got to relax and sort of sleep in this morning then make myself a delicious breakfast sandwich. 

After that came studying. I was actually really looking forward to studying today hahahaha. 

I got through one module then took a break and did the reading on a second module. I got up to cook my Blue Apron meal.

There are short lecture videos and activities that come with studying so I did a little multitasking 

Yep, I had videos playing while I cooked. 

I got through 2 entire modules and a practice midterm today. 

Here is the finished food product 

In the PM I started to read one of my mom’s presents to me

I am so excited to garden this year. It will be a noce break between working and studying. 

And I am soooo looking forward to all the amazing meals I will be able to cook with fresh food. The amazing boyfriend has agreed to help me with the garden as well 🙂 added bonus. 

Have you ever had straight off the vine/branch/stem/out of the ground food?
