Shakshuka 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 I love taking leftovers and transforming them into a delicious meal. Cracked a egg in this veggie tomato sauce with cooked potatoes, topped with herbed feta cheese (from @traderjoes) and baked until the egg was set (about 15 minutes). Paired it with a simple side salad. Easy peasy, tasty lunch that looks pretty gorgeous as well 😊 #lunch #vegetarian #yummy
Post @corepoweryoga meal: you pick 2 @panerabread - modern Greek salad with quinoa and black bean soup. It's been a while since I've been to yoga and boy was it obvious. Flexibility has never been my strong suit and yoga is certainly not something I'm naturally good at, so it takes a lot of work. But when I do go regularly, I find that it helps my other workouts feel that much better - especially running and weight training. Plus, it puts me in a better place mentally as well - allowing me to focus on my breath and forget my ever-increasing TO DO list...even for just a little while. I also love it when yoga instructors offer a lesson in each class. Today's was impermanence - a pretty uncomfortable topic, but one that certainly puts things into perspective. We often think that there will always be time to do the things on our bucket list or the things that bring us joy and that's just not true...we don't have forever. So whatever you've been itching to do, find a way to make it more of a priority. Knowing we don't have forever also helps us see the good in every day, to notice and enjoy the little things. So, think about it...what would you do if you only had 5 years to live? 1 year? 1 month?
Now that I don't have any long distance races on the calendar, I can focus on more than just mileage. I'm adding in hills, speed and strength whenever possible to become a stronger runner (and hopefully heal up a couple lingering injuries). Oh! And I ended this with a 1-minute plank and 30-second side planks. Phew! What's your workout today? #runner #workout #strength
A lil bit of California dreamin' on this #tbt. Some family beach time in Santa Cruz was the perfect way to kick off our Cali trip and we were absolutely delighted that spring had arrived in DC when we came back. This view tho... ☀️ 😎 #gowintravels #beach #california
