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?

The king of grocery shopping

The king of grocery shopping

I spent the weekend with my best friend in Mississippi while Willie stayed behind to handle the dogs!  He also had to handle the grocery shopping so that we could successfully handle the Sunday meal prepping. For the record, my husband is AMAZING! I got to enjoy views like this and he got to take the dog to get his shots. Remember ho I told y’all Willie came in under budget for the grocery shopping?  He did it again.  Maybe I should start sending him to the store instead of going myself.  He did a really good job.  Our fridge…

This week’s sunday set up: spring rolls, roasted chickpeas and vinegar chicken

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s been a pretty uneventful weekend. We were supposed to go to Austin for the Fit Foodie thing but a lot of things got in the away so we had to cancel. That was a bummer because I wanted to meet Allison Sweeney. Instead, we continued on with our normal workouts. Willie is starting to get into marathon training so it’s kind of nice that we can run together. I was doing a recovery run of 6 miles and he did 8 miles. He was all smiles when he was done. It’s Sunday so you know what…

Sunday set up: meatballs, egg muffins,  raw “cookie dough”

Happy Sunday!  That means it’s time for meal prepping in our house.  This week I’ve been feeling uninspired with the meals.  We didn’t even make a grocery list when we headed to the store. It’s my job to deal with the lunch and Willie deals with the dinner.  Collectively we do breakfast and we each like different snacks so we do our own snacks. Breakfast: Egg white muffins and overnight oats. We’ve been eating the same thing for breakfast everyday for almost two years. It’s quick and easy and we can take it with us if we need. Lunch: Meatballs,…
