What's for Dinner? Week of 6/29

Hard to believe that it's already the end of June! And even harder to believe that it was just last weekend that I was visiting my family in MN. Guess it's a good thing when the week flies by. PLUS this is a short week with the 4th of July on Friday. Don't you just love it when the 4th lands on a  Friday! Yay!! 3-day weekend!!!

Last week's workouts? Great week of training with Jeff! So far, so good on the half marathon training plan.

#SummerSplits2014 Update - I didn't do this even one day last week. :( So I've decided I'm all finished with this challenge. Can't win them all!

#HalfTrainingWithJeff Week 2. SUCCESS!! We did skip cross training last Monday because of the late night Sunday night with me coming home from MN. We haven't skipped any runs, so Yay!

What's Next? My #ETCStreaks starts on Friday, 7/5. 37 days of running or 37 days of yoga or 37 days of both. Will you be joining me?

  1. We're doing a burgers and corn on the cob dinner this week, too! Perfect for summer. Great job with your training!

  2. I recently started yoga as part of my cool down after running and love it! I'm excited to see how family and friends like the build your own burger bar :)

    1. Who wouldn't love a build your burger bar? :-) I hate stretching after a run, so a yoga cool down is my way of tricking myself into it. Lol.

  3. Fiesta black beans look delightful :) Great job on the training, how awesome you and Jeff are in full swing together. I will be jumping in July 5th and see if I can discipline myself to run till our birthday lol i still want to trade numbers :)

    1. Yay! Looking forward to celebrating our birthdays together!! :-)

  4. Looks like your training is going great! I start training next nervous but excited! The chicken marinara looks absolutely delicious!

  5. I love the idea of broccolette with the chicken marinara. My hubby and I are participating in a paleo challenge and pasta is one of his favourite meals. I'll have to try that for him and see if that could become a new go to :)

    1. I've never had broccolette before, so we'll see how it goes. Sure looks good though.
