This week started out a little hokey. While writing the dates on my training calendar Sunday evening, I realized that I was using the wrong one. Oh my goodness, was I relieved. I have been walking since November as a way to help lose the baby weight so I am no stranger to the endurance walks. I had gotten up to 9-mile walks before deciding to switch to the marathon program which started me back at 5 mile walks. I had worked my way up to 8 miles walks before deciding to switch to the AVON 39 training programs. [Read more…]
I just had to post this. This is so good for those cold nights when nothing else seems to be able to warm you up. This is an easy and healthy chicken chili recipe that blends herbs and spices for a delicious meal the entire family will love. Plus, it is Whole 30, Paleo, and Keto diet compliant. So, if you are watching your weight, be sure to try this out. Put a bit of cauliflower rice in a bowl and top with this Buffalo Chicken Chili. Yum Yum! Let me know how you liked this. [Read more…]
Hey ladies!!I have been up since 7:30 am this morning with the baby! After taking some time off to concentrate on my diet (ketogenetic) and workouts (half and marathon training) since November, I have been all about returning to some serious cardio and strength sessions this past month. My training plan has dedicated days for cross training but doesn’t specify which activities. So, I have been using activities like yard work, heavy housework, hiking, and yoga as my cross-training workouts. [Read more…]
I am combining week one and two because I started “officially” marathon training before I had completely convinced myself to join the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. But since I was training, I will count it.
I have been debating which marathon training program to use since thinking about doing the AVON 39. Last year, when I walked the American River Parkway Half Marathon pregnant (you can read about that HERE), I used a training program from the website walkjogrun.net. It was an amazing tapper program that really got me in shape and ready for the half marathon. In fact, pregnant me finished the marathon in 3:56! Not bad for a beginner at 34 weeks pregnant.

Well I did it! I have finally decided to take on a HUGE challenge. I’ve decided for my 40th birthday (July 1), I’m going to do something challenging, outside the box, and totally awesome!
I have decided that I am going to walk 39.3 MILES in 2 days in the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer on July 8-9 to help breast cancer research, screenings, and survivors. While I have never walked in the shoes of a breast cancer patient, I have many friends and family that have. This is for THEM! [Read more…]
