Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Halo Top Strikes Again, I Fell in Love with My Crock Pot, and My Mom/Sisters Came Over! (WIAW 7/19)

Good morning and happy Wednesday! I have lots of things to accomplish today and I am more than excited to tackle my checklist this morning.

(Have no idea what we do on Wednesday? Check out the details here)

Let’s chat about yesterday…

As I rolled out of bed yesterday, I caught Landon right before he went out for his run. I love that he is so disciplined. (Great job, babe!) Although I was dying to join him, I decided to pack him a lunch and get my morning started. (I’m still resting my ankle…)

After Landon went to work, I completed a twenty-five minute circuit workout and afterward made myself a peanut butter chocolate protein shake.

Ahhh, it hit the spot.  Every time I have a smoothie for breakfast, I love having a cup of coffee on the side. There is something about that hot and cold combo that is the best.

After drinking a warm cup of coffee, I had my devotions and spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning, organizing, and sorting through boxes of clothes and jewelry.

Recently, I realized I have way too many clothes that I don’t wear at all. Since I don’t want to store them, especially if I never wear them, I’ve made quite a few trips to Goodwill. It feels so good to share things that I have with those who need them!

Anyways….back to the eats.

After a couple hours of sorting, I enjoyed a large salad for lunch with a side of cheese.

Oh and watermelon. Because, watermelon…

My new favorite way to eat watermelon? Topping it with Chia seeds.

After lunch, I headed to the library and worked on my blog for a few hours before my mom and sisters came over. I also enjoyed an afternoon snack of a graham cracker wth almond butter and almond milk. 

When my mom and sisters came over, we visited my new apartment (!) and my mom finally got to feel baby T move! He or she is such a stinker when grandma is around. 😉

Dinner was super easy, thanks to my awesome crock pot! (I may or may not have fallen in love with my crock pot yesterday, it cooked my chicken perfectly!) 

Dinner: Chicken, brown rice, zuchinni, and beans. 

For the chicken I placed it in the crock pot at ten in the morning (frozen) and cooked it on low until 6. It was super juicy and flavorful. Thank you, crock pot. I will be using you a lot more often. 

After dinner, Landon and I spent a an hour at the library and once we got home I dug into my pint of Halo Top ice cream. I love that it tastes just like ice cream, but is way healthier. Win, win.

And that’s a wrap! Catch you all later today with a new recipe!
