Running and Cooking

This week has been super busy. I decided for some crazy reason to train for the Cellcom half marathon in Green Bay. I am not much of a runner and I know that training is a big time commitment. Hopefully I will stick to it and blog about it from time to time. To get myself inspired and motivated, I bought some new shoes and bought a nike plus ipod sensor for my shoes. The nike plus ipod is a really neat app that comes on newer iphones (3, 4 and 4s). It keeps track of all of my miles for me. I like it because I can play my music and towards the end of my workout push a button for my power song. My power song is "Blow" by Kesha...just in case you were wondering :)

Here are some pics of me training and the weather outside the gym. I can't wait until the weather is warmer and I can run outside.

I signed up for a membership at the local YMCA's and went to one not far from my house. I almost drove past it because it looked like a lodge!

After working out today I decided to do a little grocery shopping. I read an entry for a Korean sauce on Kristie's blog and decided to give it a whirl. It turned out great! For directions on how to make it, visit her blog at

My goodies from the Asian section of the store :) The only thing I couldn't find was sesame seeds, so I bought something called sesame sticks and sprinkled them on top of my salad. Charger as you can see was very interested in the food.

Come on Mama just....a....little...closer!

Mama...are you in the kitchen? Am I dreaming?

Gotta have my iphone out to follow the directions. Lord knows I need directions in the cooking world!

Finished product!

Even Charger wanted some! Begging just like Bunja.

That is about all I have been up to this week, running and cooking. Oh yeah and work. I did start some other things to keep me motivated. A running journal and a goal list. Hubby saw my goal list on the fridge and made a study goal one for himself. See...I am already inspiring. ;)

Hope you all are having a great weekend! And wondering what inspires all of you?


  1. Ack!! More pics of Charger to luv! Your blog is too cute! We will be moving to western WI after we return from Hawaii (aspendance). Perhaps our paths will cross some day :)
