Menu Plan Monday–October 17, 2011

This is another busy week.  Imagine that!  Something big happens this week.  Can you guess what it is?  Probably not.  LOL!  Jon gets his temporary driving permit.  OH.MY.GOSH!  Can someone please tell me when this little boy:

Became this teenager (on the left):

If I didn’t have gray hair before, I certainly [...]

Columbus Half Marathon 2011 Recap

Commit. Train. Believe. Achieve. Fitting that this is the official motto for the race that I just PR’d in!

I DID IT! Shiny new PR (personal record) for me! I finished the race in 1:57:31 yesterday – my previous PR was 2:01:22 in the same race in 2009. I don’t think I have ever [...]

Race Day

It is here. Race Day. The day I have been waiting for all summer. I ran this race 2 years ago for the first time. It was my first ever half marathon. They say you aren’t supposed to set time goals for your first race. Your goal should simply be to finish. Being the [...]

All Things Butternut

Last week I roasted a large butternut squash and used it in various meals throughout the week, as well as a side dish or a salad topper.  The squash is easy to roast.  Slice open (carefully), clean out seeds & then simply roast in the oven for about 40 minutes at 400 – 425.  [...]

Menu Plan Monday–Gluten-Free Carb Loading

Six days until my race.  What does that mean?  Other than the fact that I am going crazy from inactivity, it means carb loading time.  Carb loading does not give me a free pass to stuff my face, it means shifting the focus of my meals to be carb heavy, as opposed to focusing [...]
