Hi Friends 🙂
How is your weekend so far?
Yesterday I ran a glorious 8 miles! (on the treadmill!) It took me about 1.5 hours – I walked every couple of miles or so. My new shoes are fabulous – my feet had plenty of room to move in them, but they gave me support and felt great! To be honest, the last few times I’ve ran I’ve had bloody feet afterward – my toes were pinched in my old shoes 😦 Not any more!
I also tried out the orange sport beans and boy do they taste good! No stomach issues either, which was great. I had an America’s Next Top Model marathon to keep my company at the gym, so I was good to go!
I thought I’d give a little update on my February Goals:
1. Train for Grandma’s Marathon – I have followed my plan and I’m motivated to keep on going!
2. Read 2 books. I am finished with Love & Respect and I will have no problem finishing In Defense of Food before the end of the month. I’m loving it so far!
3. Try 2 new recipes per week. YES I have actually done this:
Week 1 (Feb 1-5):
Week 2 (Feb 6-12):
Week 3 (Feb 13-19):
Egg Souffle (see below!)
4. Stay on budget – YES! Even with an impromptu visit to Trader Joe’s, we are on track for the month. What helped me was making lists before going to the store, planning meals, and using up ingredients I already have!
5.Blog more consistently – YES! I have blogged every day since my Feb Goal post on Feb 2nd (except I skipped Feb 3 to get on a more regular posting schedule…)
I definitely consider this month a success so far – I need to keep up on a few things, but other than that I’m feeling good!
Here is the Egg Souffle I made on Friday:
I followed Beth’s recipe…except I couldn’t find my electric beaters, so I used a whisk. I don’t think that whipped up my egg whites good enough. But it still tasted fantastic!
Click here for Beth’s recipe. The only change I made was using Garlic/Herb goat cheese instead of plain, and I didn’t add any dill to the eggs. Jason and I loved the texture of the eggs and I will definitely make this again (once I get new beaters!)
Today’s plans include some stretching/foam rolling, laundry (!!!), blog updates (blogroll, recipes, etc), relaxing, reading and resting. It should be a good day!
*Plans for the day?
*Do you make goals? (weekly/monthly/yearly) How are you doing?
*Are there any recipes you made this week that I should try this week? Feel free to leave a link!
