minutes per mile blog

new post, new week

Hello! I don’t know where last week went. I clearly didn’t even have time to put my hair in a proper ponytail so blogging didn’t happen either.


But it’s Monday morning and I have a sleeping baby so here we are! Speaking of the little lady, check out her new look. This girl is rocking her glasses.


Other cute things I saw this week include turtle man. I spotted him at mile 2 and then at mile 4 after I’d turned around — he hardly moved the whole time. Must have been waiting for me!


After a couple wonder weeks with temps in the 50s and 60s, we’re now reaching the 70s and 80s (and even 90s!). 7 a.m. is my summer running cutoff time and I dashed out the door on Thursday with one minute to spare :)


Luckily I found a nice set of sprinklers nearby. Free refreshments!


And (almost) free recipes. Cook Smarts only costs us $7 a month and boy is it worth it. You can still use my ambassador link for three free meal plans!

We tried a lot of fun, quick meals last week. Shakshuka and hummus/veggies:


Shrimp po’ boys! Yum. Chips and pickles needed to happen (and those are roasted carrot “fries” on the side)


Fancy flank steak + tortellini. PS, remember when I used to take nice photos with an actual camera? Don’t think that will be happening again until the kids are in college so I hope you don’t mind my phone snapshots :) #notaphotographer #notafoodblog #justagirlwholikestorunandeat


And since we’re keeping it real over here, let me show you a pile of eggs on a paper plate. We discovered a mountain of disposable plates and cutlery during our move and are trying to use it up. Yesterday we had a father’s day feast for Anthony!


And today we’re back to the usual routine. One last pretty run photo and then I’m outta here.


Hope to see you guys soon!

  1. OMG. Those glasses. SO CUTE.

    I’m curious – how did you know she needed glasses? I was worried at one point about my 7 month old’s vision because of some things he didn’t react to. But I’m probably also paranoid because both his father and I have horrible vision so genetics say he’ll likely need glasses one day…

  2. I’m also #justagirlwholikestorunandeat. Fancy photography is basically lost on me. All I need is some good running talk and yummy food and I’m good :)

    How have you found time to run outside since having Alice? I’ve been confined to the treadmill since having my son (who is now 18 months). I have to run so early to fit it in before he wakes up. I don’t feel comfortable running alone when it’s still dark out. Oh how I miss running outside!

  3. There is literally nothing cuter than a baby in glasses. Seriously. Also? the pants. She is just beyond adorable. See that the NG switched sides at some point…? Hope that went okay for you (and Alice, obviously!).
