training update

welp, i’m still training for a 10k.

barely, though.

after the ice/snow storm hit last week and me almost getting sick (yay! still haven’t been sick this season!) my training has been slow coming. yesterday, i restarted week 4 (even though i’ve already done it) because i missed an entire week!  i have to admit…it was tough! i only jogged for a total of 20 minutes, but my body was not quite ready after a long break. lesson learned: don’t take that much time off! hopefully, i can train around our snow this week (it’s supposed to snow tomorrow and then warm up again for the weekend).

as far as weight loss – i’m kind of stuck in a winter slump (but, i haven’t gained!). i eat really great during the week, but the weekends i really slack off. the cold just zaps my motivation and energy. what has helped is my goal to stay on budget! it helps remind me that i need to cook more often and eat out less. it’s worked so far! we try and eat raw during the day and then a somewhat healthy meal for dinner.  i will usually have a HUGE salad with a side of the entree while dane does the opposite. so, even at dinner, i try to make 2/3 of my meal greens or some kind of veggie.

here, i’ll share a new recipe! we had this last night…i doubled it and we’ll be eating it tonight, too!

2 cups diced potatoes (i used new potatoes and left them pretty big chunks)
7 oz (or 1 package) sliced turkey sausage (chopped the same size as potatoes)
1/2 diced onion (not the same size as the potatoes lol)
1/2 c fat free chicken broth
1 T olive oil
1 T garlic powder
1. place diced potatoes and onions in microwave for 3-4 minutes or until soft (you can put the onions in later. i just chopped everything early in the day and had them both in the same container.)
2. brown sausage in large pan
3. take sausage out of pan and add potatoes and onions. cook for about 5 minutes with some olive oil and garlic powder.
4. add sausage back in and mix with chicken broth. cook until most, if not all, the liquid is gone. i think it was about 10 minutes more.
serve with a salad.
if there’s anything to speaks to a man…it’s meat and potatoes. 🙂
and if it’s my man then add in some candy hearts, too.

    Spring is on its way and you will get there! 10K!!! Thank you for the recipe, it looks yummy. I’m still doing week 1 of the 5k and getting nowhere fast. No snow or sickness to blame it on. Just a slacker!

    Love to you!
