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?

Late post about the weekend: color, beach and bread

This past weekend was a little bit of fun. We had plans to go to New Orleans before a little business meeting on Sunday, but the storm kind of put a nail in that coffin for us. But I was glad I was able to stay in town and walk with my mom at the Julie Rogers Gift of Life Color Rush. This time last year my mom was starting her chemo and this year she’s cancer free. How awesome is that? It’s been a long hard year but she went through it all like a trooper. Thank goodness for…

NYC in 24 hours

NYC in 24 hours

Wondering where we’ve been? We’ve been a little busy and I wanted to share a tiny bit of what we’ve been doing. Willie and I were blessed to be able to visit NYC this past weekend…for only 24 hours. Let me tell you we made the best of the situation. Willie had never visited NYC before so I was more interested in him doing the things he wanted to do. I’ve been there several times so I’ve pretty much done and seen everything touristy there was to do. I really only wanted to go to MET and Central Park.  We…

Keep healthy and fit while traveling

Keep healthy and fit while traveling

This time last week Willie and I were preparing for our first plane right in our new bodies. Before flying was also a hassle and little embarrassing. Do you know how good it felt to walk up to the counter and not worry about someone telling me that I would have to purchase another ticket to fly? And I didn’t even have to ask for a seat belt extender. It was a very exciting moment for both us, especially Willie because he hadn’t been on a flight in 15 years…and probably never thought he would be able to fly ever…
