I hit five miles Monday. Running after six is my jam. I run so much better when it’s cooler, when I hydrate all day long, fuel properly and have a running partner. I’ve also been keeping my run keeper on silent so I don’t hear the times and milage. I think it forces me to run faster and it’s better to do what feels natural. It’s a mental thing for me. After my run, I took a hot bath, stretched and then used the massager on my legs and knees. I took yesterday off and will run again today.
Tino and I walked the greenway yesterday. It was so nice out!
I’ve been anxiously waiting for the Juice Bar at the Park Road plaza to open! Chopt is also opening up:)
I stopped at Earthfare so I could make the first soup of the fall season! I also picked up some delicious foods.
I grabbed a juice and coffee before I left!
I got some new Fall clothes and my first pumpkin of the year!
I also made chicken and veggie soup.
I boiled an entire chicken and then used a strainer to pour the homemade broth into a giant pot. I shredded the chicken and added it back to the giant pot of broth.
I added chopped squash, zucchini, carrots, celery, green beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, russet potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
For the seasoning I added black pepper, sea salt, fresh oregano, minced garlic, parsley, garlic powder, and brown sugar. I don’t measure when adding seasoning. I go by taste.
Cook on high for three-four hours.
I love adding croutons to my soup…and a couple tablespoons of cheese. 🙂
This soup was delicious and I can’t wait to have it all week long.
It was gorgeous last night (around 70 degrees) and I spent some time playing with Grumps in the backyard. He’s obsessed with sticks!
I love this time of year 😉
Every time I sat down somewhere, Grumps would bring his stick over to me.
His leg is doing so much better. The cut from the groomer has healed and the limping has gone away 100%.
He wasn’t feeling the selfies. (my hair hates this weather)
I love this picture because I have a photo of Grumps and I doing the same pose when he was a puppy!
And I found these little devils yesterday…
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fall?
