Post marathon…

A little over a month ago I completed my first marathon.  I still can’t believe it!  Since the marathon I’ve run a couple of times but have mostly focused on weight training.  I decided to focus on weights partly to give my body a break from running and partly because I want to give my body a chance to get stronger.  I have to tell you, I’m loving weights!  I love that I can be creative in what exercises I choose and what body part I want to work each day.  Granted, it’s also kind of stressful since there are so many options but I really like being in control of my workout.  If there’s an exercise I have on the schedule but I really don’t want to do it, no sweat.  I choose something else.  Although exercise is a commitment and I don’t always feel like doing it, I don’t want it to feel like a big chore.  Being flexible with my weight lifting routine helps a lot.

I’m excited to share more about my weight lifting journey with you!  I took some “before” photos and hopefully by the end of the summer, I’ll be brave enough to show you where I started and how far I’ve come.  :)

Foodie Friday: Coconut Curry Veggies

Happy Friday!! I’m linking up again this week with Annemarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Cassandra from Powered by Bling, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Farrah from Fairyburger to bring you healthy recipes. This week’s theme is “Hot and Spicy”. Please be sure to check out their recipes and feel free to add yours as well.

I’ve tried over the last few weeks to incorporate more vegetables into my diet. Here’s an easy recipe to add some variety to your veggies:

Coconut Curry Veggies

1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 zucchini, sliced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp hot madras curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt/pepper to taste

1. Heat coconut oil in a pan
2. Add bell pepper and zucchini, cook for about 5 minutes
3. Add spices, cook until peppers and zucchini begin to soften

Note: I like my vegetables a little crisp. Cook until the veggies reach your desired level of tenderness.

Also, we LOVE hearing from you. If you’d like to follow any members of our link-up, here are the details:
