Oh healthy day!

Today was great!

Breakfast was Kashi Go Lean Cereal with Flaxseeds sprinkled on top.  Lunch was Joseph’s Hummus with celery sticks and a fresh tomato.  And dinner…..

Squash & Zucchini Casserole and a fresh tomato! The casserole was so tasty. I love squash and zucchini, especially home-grown ones like these!

Onto bigger and better news:  I ran 2 miles today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is such a big deal for me.  My motivation is high and my endurance is tested with each run.  I’m starting to really like running <——- Never thought I’d say that!

If you have any squash or zucch’s leftover, try this recipe!

Hi! I a girl approaching the big 3-0 who is on a search to find zen for my body. Being busy all the time (full time job, full time grad student, and juggling an internship!) I have limited time to exercise and even less time to prepare nutritional meals. However, I figure a blog will keep me accountable and help me to make some much needed changes in my life! I hope I can bring some tips to help other busy folks as well. Enjoy!

    Two miles is an accomplishment for me, too 🙂
    Congrats! I know how it feels to meet the next milestone and I’m excited for you! I’m starting to like running too. Being a World of Warcraft nerd for the last few years and a computer / book nerd for my whole life, I never thought I would say that, either!
