The Blizzard of 2016, Week In Review, What's to Come

As much as I wish my house was shielded from the wrath of Jonas, we were hit pretty hard.

The snow came down on Friday afternoon and dumped on us until late Saturday. Overall, we have over 2 feet of snow.

Because conditions were awful, I had to stay inside to run my 15 miler. I am sure it goes without saying that I did not want to run that far on the treadmill! But I tried to entertain myself with movies like Mary Poppins and Frozen.

Unfortunately something was up with my iTunes account and it would stop the movies 30 minutes in. So I resorted to Orange is the New Black.

After running a little over 10 miles, my treadmill stopped (it auto stops at 1:40:00) and I took the time to free my feet from their sweaty socks, chug water, and eat lunch. Within an hour, I was back at it again to finish out the remaining 5 miles.

In the end, I was satisfied that I was able to get through it. The treadmill destroyed my feet and they were uber sensitive for the remainder of the day. Anyone else have that problem after running for a long time on the treadmill?

I also got in my yoga workout. Wine included.

I skipped my planned P90X3 Dynamix workout because last week, it hurt my knee. I was having knee problems which were going away until I did this workout. So I will not be including it in my weekly plans for the time being.

Anyway...enough about last week...we're already in a new week! Let's move forward!

Here are the meals I've prepped for the week!

Food Plan
SUNDAY: Lentil Sweet Potato and Kale Soup  
MONDAY: Bow Ties with Tomato, Basil and Avocado Sauce - RW Meals on the Run 
TUESDAY: Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats 
WEDNESDAY: Butternut Pasta Casserole 
THURSDAY: Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken 
FRIDAY: Homemade Pizza 
SATURDAY: Baked Spaghetti Squash and Cheese
I think I have a great lineup here. As I was prepping, everything looked super delicious and I couldn't decide which I wanted to have first in the week!

Luckily, we started with the soup! I use the word "luckily" because 1) it is super cold here and 2) it was delicious! I think we are off to a great start!

But what really got me excited as I prepped was Wednesday's Butternut Pasta Casserole. I prepared the creamy butternut sauce and OH. MY. was hard for me not to take spoonfuls of it.

I love cashews and butternut squash so with their powers combined, I was in heaven. I am thinking about using this in my own recipes in the future! Stay tuned!

So enough about food (I'm drooling!), let's talk about fitness for the week!

This is my last week doing this plan. I will be moving out of phase one after this week and having a sort of rest/transitional week. This will also be my last week doing Yoga with Adriene. The 30 days ends on Sunday :o( . I need to find something to replace the yoga, so send me your suggestions on yoga videos! I may end up doing her 30 days from last year.

This week also has a shorter long run. I'm letting my body recover a little and then kicking it back up again next week! I've really had to fudge this marathon plan since Peter and I were injured early in the game, but we are catching up!

So that's all I got! It's going to be a great week...especially in the food department! I can't wait to share the outcome!

How did you survive snowstorm Jonas? Did you end up running/working out?

What are your go-to shows/movies when running on the dreadmill?
