Setting up the Sunday

Good evening everyone! I’m trying to set up the week today. We went to the grocery store this morning and had a pretty lazy day. Then I thought it was time to make the lunches for the week.


Nothing fancy happening here this week. Good ole turkey burgers, spaghetti squash casserole and some smokey greens. I’m responsible for lunch, Willie is responsible for dinner and we both contribute to breakfast. That’s just what works for us.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did. For everyone out there who thinks I don’t run unless it’s a race situation, you’re wrong. I was home this weekend so I went for a run.

Had fun running my 8.30 miles this morning. The run was cut short because I got hungry. I decided to throw in the towel for breakfast. I tested my new hydration pack, played at the park, ran by my mom's house and enjoyed the neighborhoods. I just like to

I had to cut it short because I was hungry for breakfast. I didn’t really fuel up correctly pre-run to take it much longer than 10 miles. I stopped close to 8.5 miles because I was back at my car. It was fun though. I tried out my new hydration pack, played at the park, stopped by my mom’s house and enjoyed the neighborhoods. Best trip I’ve taken this month. I’m trying to run when the sun is out and smacking me in the face so I can make it through my big summer plans.

I found a Groupon for Garbanzo’s yesterday. I didn’t know there was one in Houston which made me happy. I discovered the place last year in Denver. That’s our type of place to eat. Now I’m completely obsessed with finding Groupons.

Treating @fueledxrunning to his first #mlb game. #Astros are going to light up the Mariners tonight. #happywife #funtimes #baseball #mlbastros

Last night, I took Willie to his first MLB game. Willie hit the baseball game jackpot because it was really exciting. He might have the wrong idea about how baseball games usually go. The Astros completely decimated the Mariners last night. I think there were 6 home runs in the game. It was pretty amazing.

Good times at the Astros game. The Astros are lighting the Mariners up! #baseball #mlb #Astros

The sun was in our face for the first hour but when it started to set, it was pretty amazing. And we actually found someone at the ballpark that knew how to take a picture. We got a pretty amazing picture.

Are you setting up your week? What did you do this weekend?

I had a good weekend

I had a really great weekend.  I know I don’t usually post stuff about my normal day to day on the blog, but maybe I should do more things like that. I spent Valentine’s Day being active with Willie and support my best friend at her school 5k.  Note:  it was a lot of walking on a soccer field. Totally not serious, but A LOT of fun! And someone showed me to to stretch because I wasn’t do it right! Then we headed to the expo to pick up our packets. Then I fought the ridiculous Austin traffic to hang…

I went to a Backstreet Boys concert and had a good time

Wait!  I know you think the only thing I do is sports related things but you’re wrong.  The thing is I love food, I love to travel and I love to just do fun things.  The fun travel and things I’ve mostly done this year have involved running.  This time I went somewhere and I didn’t run…even though I wanted to so badly but I have to take a break sometime, right?  So I went to the Backstreet Boys concert in Austin on Sunday night!  I have a lot of stuff going on in life so it was kind of…
