Weekly Wrap - Jan 21

Welcome back to another episode of the Weekly Wrap! Linking up with Holly and Wendy. Here's what I've been up to this past week.

Weekly Wrap


Looking back over the week, I'm pretty happy with my workouts. Sure, I could have pushed a little hard some days, but something is better than nothing. And something was accomplished every day. Grateful to be doing the Yoga With Adriene TRUE series. It's definitely been keeping me motivated throughout the week. I also did the Tone It Up daily workout most days.

How to Make the Best Creamy Artichoke Pasta Salad

Ibotta had Reese artichoke hearts on sale in the app. I wasn't sure if I even really liked them, but I decided to buy a can and experiment.

I created a pasta salad and was pleasantly surprised with how delicious it turned out!

Why Turn the Tables on My Running Form?

It's no secret that one of my goals for 2018 is to transition to forefoot running. I feel like it's all I've been talking about lately. It's definitely my current BHAG - Big Hairy Audacious Goal.

I've had a few people ask me why I decided to make the change, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my why behind this life-changing goal.

My Why Behind Transitioning to Forefoot Running

It all started a few years ago when I read Born to Run. Well, it may have started earlier than that, but that's when I really fell in love with the idea.

Weekly Wrap - Jan 14th

I've gone back and forth on how I want to do my weekly wrap posts this year. I still haven't come up with anything that I really love. Guess it will be a work in progress. 😃

How do you like this graphic for my workout summary? It was a bit time-consuming to create, but I don't think it will be as bad updating it each week.

5 Delicious Additions to Make the Best Hot Cocoa

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Today's topic for the Friday Five 2.0 is Ways to Keep Warm. Living in Las Vegas, our winters are pretty mild. No bomb cyclones. No blizzards. We did get a little rain earlier this week, but nothing to get too worked up about.

We do get overnight lows down in the 30s and 40s though. Perfect weather for cozying up with a hot cup of cocoa - definitely one of my favorite ways to keep warm.

I'm kind of lazy about making hot cocoa, though.
I tend to stock up with a big canister of Swiss Miss to get me through the winter.

I may be lazy about making the cocoa, but sometimes I like to go a little crazy with additions to make it even more delicious.
