half the battle + a quick tip

Hey there! It’s grey and glum outside — I really struggled to get out the door and make it to a 6 am Body Pump class. When I arrived at the gym, this sign made me smile! Particularly true today.IMG_2370Tossing around some weights to Kelly Clarkson was a nice change from the usual silent runs. This class (which I’d never been to before) was packed with people and super high-energy! Definitely woke me (and my triceps) up.

This is where I usually show you something I cooked, but today I’ll show you what LEAH cooked! She hosted Miriam and me over for dinner last night and made an incredible balsamic chicken-veggie creation — I think this is her recipe?_DSC0003We had rice and a beautiful salad on the side — salad made by and posed with Miriam 😉_DSC0001Not only are these two great running buddies, but they are also great eating buddies. Which makes them best buddies.

I brought dessert — fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream!_DSC0006Tip of the day: make your own whipped cream (here’s a recipe). It’s 500% better than store-bought.

And with that, I have to go! See you from Boston!

  1. Homemade vegetable soup is way better than store bought. More flavor and less salt. Love to put in butternut squash

  2. Homemade peanut butter! I just throw my peanuts in the vitamin and oh my goodness it’s so warm and delicious! I never buy store bought peanut butter! Or almond butter for that matter!
