Sorry for only one post today!  My computer has been super slow lately, and I really needed to clean things up, so my computer was dumping most of it’s information onto my external hard drive for a good portion of the day.  So far, it seems to be moving pretty smoothly, so let’s hope it stays that way!


I ran 7 miles today!

That is 100% real sweat on my face

Sadly, I forgot to stop my timer at the end of the 7 mile run so I’m not sure how fast I ran it, but I know it was under an hour.


For breakfast I cooled off with a delicious PB and J smoothie bowl:

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/3 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • pinch of xanthum gum
  • 2 packets of splenda
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • water and ice cubes for volume
I call it PB and J because the addition of strawberry mixed with the peanut butter tastes like strawberry jelly and peanut butter!  It’s very tasty 🙂
After breakfast, Brian and I went to mass and then he got down to studying.  This is the week before his first set of monthly exams and he is getting a little nervous.
While my computer was doing it’s thang I spent a good portion of the day preparing meals for the week and working on my project for the family reunion this coming weekend.
Suddenly, it was dinner time!  Originally, I was going to make this meal part of the Guy Food series, but Brian was busy studying so I made it myself!  This meal is great because when making it for two, there are leftovers that are easily frozen or refrigerated for later in the week.
White Chili
  • 1/2 cup of purple (or red) onion
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 4 oz can of green chilis
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 8oz cans of great northern beans
  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cans of chicken broth
  • 1 cup water if needed
In large pot, saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender.  Add chilies and seasonings.  Mix thoroughly.  Add beans, chicken and broth to pot.  Add water to reach desired consistency.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Serve topped with grated cheese, chopped fresh tomato, salsa or guacamole.  Serve with tortilla chips.

I also had a chance to use the bread maker my mom gave me about a month ago for the first time today!  It made the apartment smell amazing, and the bread tastes great too 🙂

Whole Wheat Bread from the breadmaker

Tomorrow is my last day working for Emmis fitting children with bicycle helmets.  I feel like I have really enjoyed my time working with my co-workers and it will be strange not to see them on a weekly basis anymore.


Right now, as a Sunday night tradition, I am watching Next Food Network Star in bed.

What are some of your Sunday night traditions?
