Catch you up Buttercup

Hi!

I’ve been lazy.

I took a test for my Teacher certification (and passed!) and then continued to do nothing else but watch Revenge, eat, workout, and finish some other things for school for the rest of the week.

I complain that I have ‘no time’ but somehow like 10 episodes of Revenge have been watched in the last 3 days. Ha!

Here’s a photo dump of what has been going on :)

Can’t decide if this outfit goes together?

It’s been RIDICULOUSLY warm outside these past few days…and I just can’t justify wearing bright colors, shorts, and flipflops in January so I TRY to look ‘winterish’ but it’s been 85 DEGREES out. I could really go for some like 70 degree running weather, PLEASE.

This was the sky on my way to the gym the other day. So lovely.

Out to dinner with some friends for a girls night at Timpano. Hate this picture of me but whatever.

A good dinner I cooked for myself the other day. Roasted sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus, and grilled chicken with lemon pepper.

Notice the bottle of coconut oil in the background? Ya, I’m still figuring out when/how to use that stuff. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Love my of LIIIIFE…

Ginormous water I drank yesterday during an all day training for school. IMG_2772

Yesterday’s Crossfit session…Yikes! The test was 3 minutes of double unders (I did 159), the SWOD was OHS (Overhead squats) (I got up to 75 lbs) and the WOD was 10 minute AMRAMP (as many reps as possible) of 30 Double Unders and 15 Power Snatches (I got through 4 rounds using 45 lbs on my bar for the snatch). Ohhh my heart rate was through.the.roof. I love it.IMG_2775Last night I made black bean burgers from Cooking Light Mag. Basically it goes as follows:

Can of black beans in the food processor with an egg and Canola oil. Add mixture to a bowl with panko crumbs, green onions, cumin, red pepper, garlic cloves, and salt. I divided the mixture into four patties and coated with panko bread crumbs. I put canola oil into a skillet and cooked the patties on each side for about 4-5 minutes on med-high heat.

IMG_2778On the side I roasted brussels with s/p, evoo, and honey. Then when I took them out of the oven I put a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, salt and pepper on the brussels and mixed them in a bowl.

I just went shopping. Let’s not discuss that.

Now I am going to nap and catch up on Top Chef. I’m trying to enjoy myself before I start a full time teacher’s schedule on Monday! Uhohhhh, I’m a real person (minus the pay check).

xo,

PS. Good luck to all the Walt Disney World Marathon/Half Marathon runners!! It was one year ago that I completed my first half marathon at the WDW Marathon. I can’t believe it’s only been a year :)

About S2S

I've always been somewhat concerned with getting physical activity and eating healthy. My parents were always doing active things with my sister and I growing up and cooking good foods for us. I work out 6 days a week and recently began to get serious about it! I'm just learning how to cook and so far it's been fun. I enjoy hanging out with my husband, my family, and my puppy in Tampa. I got my undergraduate degree in Finance but after two years in the corporate world I have decided to go back to school at USF to become a teacher. It has been the best decision of my life, aside from marrying my husband! I travel to Orlando and Boca Raton frequently to visit the in laws. I'm always up for new challenges and am always willing to try something once. From running in my sneakers to walking the beach in my sandals - I'll share all my adventures with you. Enjoy!
