Drawing a blank

17 Aug

I have no idea what to post about today, so this all may be a bit random:

Yesterday, I had a tempo run on the schedule. I hate tempo runs. I did not want to do it. I whined and complained, but ultimately what got me out of the house was the fact that Janae at Hungry Runner Girl ran 8 miles the day before she gave birth, and I figured if she can do that, I can do a little 30 minute tempo run! So I did it, and, surprising to absolutely nobody, I did not regret it:

After that I came home and made an amazing Jambalaya with sweet italian sausage, shrimp and a ton of veggies. I really need to get the hang of taking photos of all my food, because it was so pretty and colorful. I had a few cool things in the mail that I’ll be reviewing here.

First, I got a sample packet of the Vega One all-in-one nutritional shake in Chocolate. I’ve been hearing a lot about Vega in the blog world lately, and it’s been pretty positive. I can’t wait to blend this with some almond-milk for a post-Bootcamp treat on Saturday morning.

Also, I received my first Bulu Box. I signed up for this because I got a coupon code for the first box for free and I was sure I would cancel after the first box, but now I’m not so sure I will. This box is advertised as a box with Vitamin and Supplement samples, but I got such good samples in the first box that my interest is piqued. Stay tuned for a review of this very soon.


My Favorite things so far this week: 

  1. Corgi Cam!I discovered this yesterday from an article on XOJane.com, and it has been incredible. The puppies mostly sleep right now, but I’m really going to enjoy watching them grow.

    Breastfeeding is hard work, y’all.

  2. Janae’s Baby. Seriously, this girl amazes me. I mentioned that she ran 8  miles the day before she gave birth, right? She moved from Utah to California, ran 8 miles and then had a baby. Now she, Billy and baby are just going with the flow, because they haven’t even moved into their apartment yet. I’d say most people would be stressed, but Janae takes everything in stride, with a huge grin on her face. She’s my idol.
  3. The Ultimate Veggie Burger Formula over at No Meat Athlete. I love making my own veggie burgers, but I’ve gotten really lazy lately and have been eating the store bought kind, but this post is motivating me to get back into making my own. I’m going to attempt a batch this weekend to put in the freezer for the week.
  4. Just 6 more work days until it’s time for vacation!

I hope you have a great friday!

Question of the Day:
What’s your favorite thing from this week so far?

    Oooh, that Bulu box sounds interesting, I might get this after Whole 30 (super strict on added sugars, etc)
