If you’re on any type of healthy eating plan there probably isn’t a whole lot of Italian food in your life. But what happens if that is all you really want? Well, you have two options…suck it up 🙂 OR try to figure out how to make “healthier” Italian food. Last week I went on the search for just that and came across Delish’s recipe “Best Cauliflower Baked Ziti.”
This past weekend I attended the Athleta Thrive Fit Fest in Harrisburg, PA. It was the first time I had ever been to a “fitness festival” but I have seen them popping up everywhere, so I decided to give one a try!
I had a great experience and got to try a lot of different workouts, products, and food that I normally wouldn’t have. The whole thing was a bit intense with back-to-back workouts scheduled, but you can pick and choose what you want to try. I, of course, wanted to try almost everything…and now I am super sore because of it! But damn if it wasn’t a great way to spend a day!
I have a new love…and her name is Aldi 🙂 I don’t know why it took me so long to realize this grocery store’s greatness, but I am now on the bandwagon and loving it!
Aldi is a great grocery store for anyone trying to eat healthier or just to save some money. Here’s why:
- Great produce
- Great meat
- Many organic options
- Reasonably priced
- Not too many temptations because the selection is limited
I was able to reduce my weekly grocery bill from about $65 to around $40 – that’s about $100 a month that I save just by shopping at Aldi!
So…I have started running…like officially! If you saw my Austin post you will know it all started in a hotel gym where I just “tried” to run. And, as it turns out I didn’t hate it.
When I came back from Austin I started to research what would be the best way to get into running. Especially, for someone who had never run before…0% running happening here! I mean, I had a joke that if I was running you should be too! The only reason I would be running is if there were zombies, a natural disaster, murderers…you can see where I am going here.
So, I basically started from scratch. With a little help from the internet and a friend 🙂 who runs half marathons, I got a plan together with the goal of running a 5K.
