chicken spring rolls + “peanut” sauce {gf, df, vegan option}

Guys guess what. Seriously guess. I bet you’ll never guess. Okay I’ll tell you. The Vietnamese restaurant in my town went out of business. Pretty much the saddest thing to happen since 2012.

Therefore, I have found ways that make running less miserable for me, and this is the workout I do most often Continue reading “Basic Treadmill Interval Run”

 ‘Tis the season to turn our lives around because it’s a ~NEW YEAR~!!! I’m sure a few of us are vowing to complete all of the things that we quit doing on January 5th last year—like saving money, losing 20 pounds, or the extremely vague “being happy.” While being more frugal, healthier, or happier is a good concept, it’s not likely to last long.  Continue reading “New Years Resolution of Practicality”
