Finally a 17 miler + the meal plan link up

Yesterday was mild enough that I could really enjoy the long run outdoors… the snow was pretty, too! I’m finally back up to 17 miles (the longest I did this fall post baby) and it was much easier than the last one, so I feel ready to tackle a few 20 milers before Boston.
Everyone was waiting for me (and/or playing in the snow) as I finished up… the best way to finish a long run!

Jill and I love having so many new people linking up your meal plans! (We’ve had 30-40 the last few weeks!) If you remember to also mention that you’re linking up with us, that can help others to come check out everyone else’s meal plan, too (or join and link up their own.) Remember to comment on a few other links as well to support each other!

(By the way, I can’t always get to every single one but I’ll do my best.)

This week’s meal plan:

Sunday: North Indian Chicken Curry (tomato and yogurt based) + rice

Monday: Quinoa Minestrone

Tuesday: Cilantro Lime Fish Taco

Wednesday: leftovers

Thursday: Mexcian Skillet Casserole

Friday: hopefully out for Valentine’s day?

Were you playing in the snow this week?

  1. It’s funny how close we live yet we have absolutely no snow. I’m glad the run boosted your confidence. It sounds like it was a great week for you.

    The Mexican Skillet Casserole looks really good. It looks so easy, I could do it LOL.

  4. Congratulations on a great week of training! Also many thanks to you and Jill for hosting the link up. I find writing out my meal plan on the blog helps me to stay accountable. I’ve also found great recipes through other’s blogs in the link up so it has been a great resource!

  5. I’m planning to make the Mexican skillet this week, too!
    No playing in the snow – we have had unseasonably warm weather this weekend (mid 60s to almost 70) – it is awesome!!! Normally February in Kansas is cold and snowy so I’m loving the weather right now.

  8. Yummy! That pizza looks delicious! We used to do “make your own” pizza parties and it’s so fun to pick your own toppings and make your own dough! I do A LOT of one pot meals, but my most recent was a ground turkey veggie soup with lentils. I have been eating it for dinner every night this week, so I guess that is my “meal plan” for the week!
