Workouts – Last Week Today – July 10

Kept up my running routine, and feeling great.  I can’t believe training for the Houston Half starts next week! This summer is flying by! I remembered to wear my Jawbone Up24 a few times this week. I have determined that I can easily get in 10k steps if I walk both dogs at night. The girls are loving the extra attention that…

Cowabunga 5k Virtual Race Recap

I signed up to run the Cowabunga 5k Virtual Race in June.  I ran it as part of the social run I do with Gooses Acre Running Club.  With the heat, I had no goals for time… I just wanted to have a fun run, I thought running in a group would make it seem more “racey”. The Cowabunga 5k  Virtual Run,…

Quick Black Beans and Rice

I’m not sure this can even be considered a recipe, given it is super easy and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. I love this meal for weeknights when cooking seems like too much trouble.  It is also great in the summer-time as it does not require use of oven or stovetop. Uncle Ben’s ready rice makes preparation a…

Lots of Pun To Be Had: Punderdome – A Card Game For Pun Lovers

I have a confession… I love puns. Another confession… I love board games, especially the ones that make you think. When I found that there was a game that combined both loves, I knew I had to try it… enter, Punderdome. Punderdome comes from the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition. The game is pretty simple to play, and…

Choosing Races – My Process

Today I’m linking up with Erika at MCM Mama Runs, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at My no-guilt life for Tuesdays on the Run. Today the topic is: How do you choose your races? What thought process do you use? I would love to run all the races, but that would get pretty expensive! I’ve ran in 4…

Vegan Scrambled Tofu Breakfast Burritos

I admit… I have never liked eggs.  I don’t care for the taste, and they always make me burp. Scrambled tofu, I like. When I found this recipe for scrambled tofu, made with aquafaba from Ashley over at Blissful Basil, I was intrigued. The thing is with scrambled tofu is the tofu doesn’t really stick together after you’ve made it….

Workouts – Last Week Today – July 3

Feeling good about being back in my running routine.  My mileage is low, and I’m slowly increasing it. I don’t start my training cycle for my next half marathon until the the middle of this month.  I have a few shorter distance races on the horizon, and I will start incorporating a little speed work here and there, but frankly… I’m…

June Running Recap

June… is in the books. The year is halfway over, where did it go! In June, I took a fabulous vacation to Colorado with the hubs, it set my running back a bit as I didn’t run for 10 days. I made some running goals for the year in January and it’s time to check in to see how I’m progressing…

Vegan Loaded BBQ Potato

  Monday I shared a recipe for a loaded baked potato… today I’m sharing another one, but this time with BBQ! BBQ potatoes are all the rage at BBQ restaurants in Houston (and maybe other spots too), the only problem is that they come loaded with meat. Given my love for baked potatoes and my love for bbq sauce, I knew I…
