Time Management Fail…

I can’t believe another week has passed since I last posted…I need to start carving out time in my schedule to post updates and also to read YOUR BLOGS! I have been so bad lately in commenting on your blogs but I have been reading them whenever I get chance, which is usually when I am on the bus heading to the gym lol.

My days have been filled with training other people but I am trying not to neglect myself in the process….

I am still loosely following the Ease into 10K program and I just completed week 9 last week and it looked something like this….

E10K W9 D2E10K W0 D3

I also started running earlier in the morning because when I don’t my runs look a lot like this…

Short, Slow, and SWEATY!!!!!!! (heat is not my friend)


I also brought some new sneakers to keep my feet happy =)

Asics Gel Kayano 17….


Besides running, I have also been doing some baking/cooking…normal people do this in the winter but I get the baking bug in the summer…

Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffin (recipe)


And of course with the warm weather approaching, I am also craving more burgers…

Boo Yah Black Bean Burgers (recipe)


No matter how busy I am, I still make time for my homefries! This past Friday her school did the Wizard of Oz and she played a flying monkey and she even had lines!


DJ Pose….


Trainer Pose…


I was a proud titi and yes I cried!



  1. She's so cute!!! So proud of you for sticking with your training, even in this heat. For me, this is the hardest time of year, so much easier to layer in the winter ;-)

  2. Aww she's so, so adorable!

  3. Awww, she's so cute!!

    Awesome workouts--especially with the heat!!

  4. Aww cuteness! Love pictures of you and Home Fries!

    And woot woot on the training plan! You are going to rock the 10K!

  5. How cool, a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz! I would have loved that, that was one of my favorite scenes (and scariest) in the movie!

    Time management is difficult for me too, but to be honest, the last thing I try to worry about is BLOGGING! This is a hobby, not a job, so relax and keep doing what you're doing, we'll still read :)

  6. Well look at you! No signs of roman beans, or fried scary things.

    Its all running, "my man", healthy stuff, "my man" more running and running, and healthy stuff. Pheeewwww!!

    I knew there was a good reason why I visited less. LOL! :) :)

    Hope you are all keeping well Mari!

    P.S. So any news??? Has he asked the question yet? lol.

  7. Those black bean burgers look so fantastic! YUM!

  8. You're a soldier for battling the heat. The Texas heat is bad and it hasn't even really gotten hot yet I'm not looking forward to it.

  9. ha love the DJ/trainer pose. This heat is no joke but those 10K stats are looking sweet :) Happy training!
