Before I dive into today’s post I want to shed light on the tragic events that happened on September 11, 2001. Many lives were lost and lives were changed forever that day, and I can’t help but take a moment to recognize them today. We will never forget.
Hey Friends! Happy Friday 🙂
Good morning from Jake’s Brew Bar!
This morning I started my day with a class at The Ballet Physique and now I’m getting a little blog work done at this adorable coffee shop across the street before a meeting 🙂
Breakfast was delicious and easy thanks to my Love Grown and Justin’s to-go packets! (and a wonderful almond milk latte!)
I feel like it’s been forever since I have chatted with all of you, so I am happy that I can take the time to share some updates from the week with you!
This weekend, Brian and I don’t have a TON planned but we are going to a movie tonight and we are going hiking on Sunday. As for the rest, we will just have to wait and see!
I just have to start this “food” section out by letting you know that Wednesday I had an insatiable hunger…then yesterday I ran 18 miles so, I was also pretty darn hungry and well, today? Yep…hungry again! Ha!! When I have days like that I really try to eat lots of little meals rather than snacky foods. I put my mini meals on a plate and eat them sitting at the table and I make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. This helps me stay satiated a little longer 🙂
I have the chicken, veggies and rice all cooked up ahead of time.
I just toss them all in a pan with the spinach to warm it up and wilt the greens, toss it in a bowl and I’m good to go! So tasty and satisfying.
After a “taper” week last week, I had my longest run yet of 18 miles.
I definitely ran slower than usual, but I got the 18 miles DONE! I am still in disbelief that I ran for 3 hours. Today (the day after) I am feeling a little sore in my glutes, hips and hamstrings but that is to be expected. I plan on foam rolling, stretching and doing lots of walking to keep things feeling good.
Earlier in the week I did a quick 3 mile run and was happy to have a comfortable pace of around 8 minutes per mile.
After running for 3 hours, it’s amazing how SHORT 3 miles really feels!
Other workouts I did this week:
Just snoozing next to me while I study.
Sleeping under the bed in the guest room. So cute I can’t stand it!
This would look GREAT on Bernie!
Alright friends! That’s all for today 🙂
I hope you have a fantastic weekend and Friday 🙂

Congrats on this week’s accomplishments!!! Thanks for all the tips and recipes. The fall nourishment bowl looks delightful! It’s been great having you in class at The Ballet Physique. Your positive vibes and enthusiasm is off the charts! Looking forward to our Periscope collab next Friday: Breaking down some barre moves 🙂
Thanks, Tricia! You are too sweet 🙂 Can’t wait for Friday!
Yes! That lion costume would be adorable on Bernie! I love it! Hiking on Sunday sounds nice, I may need to add that to my weekend plans as well!
You totally should hike! 🙂
Love that shirt you are wearing in that picture! For the weekend, I’ve got 2 yogas classes and a wine tasting on the schedule..can’t wait! Have a great weekend 🙂
Thanks, Sara! It was on sale at Target!! AH Yoga and wine…sounds lovely!
the chicken from your bowl looks absolutely delish, i was wondering if the recipe was already on your blog ? anyway,i would love to try your lunch combo !
Thank you! I haven’t posted the recipe…basically I threw two chicken breasts into the crockpot with about 1/2 cup of water and some seasonings and let them cook on high until they are easy to shred. Super simple!
Can’t wait for the eggplant recipe! That’s one veggie I don’t eat enough, but I love it.
It’s so good, Megan!! I just have to remember to take those pics!
