What's up, friends? How's your Tuesday been? We are having the most amazing weather here in South Carolina. Clear blue skies, temps in the 70s for highs, sunny...it's enough to make a girl want to take a vacation day! But I am holding onto those days for summer and special occasions!
I am in a running rut. I really need to be running. I am just in a place where I. just. hate. it. I have been walking/running on my non-Zumba-teaching nights. I am trying to do between 2-4 miles when I go. I love walking, but I just don't feel like I get a good enough workout walking, even walking at a fast speed.
Anybody have some old tips for sticking with the running? I have done C25K before... and maybe I need to get back on that wagon. Anyways, if you have some tips, or words of encouragement, or even if you just want to commiserate, leave a comment on this post. ;)
In other news, tonight after I taught Zumba, I went with an old favorite- breakfast for dinner.
Yesterday I shredded some sweet potato in my food processor, and I had a pack of sausage from Lettuce Carry in the fridge. So I thought, why not? Breakfast for dinner. Bonus- I now have sausage and sweet potato hash to eat for breakfasts this week. Yay for being prepared!
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 lb. ground breakfast sausage
- 1 shredded sweet potato (I shred in my food processor but you could certainly shred using a cheese grater)
- 1 medium onion OR a handful of sliced green onions
- 1-2 eggs
Melt coconut oil in a hot nonstick skillet. Add sausage and brown, breaking you as you go. Ice sausage is browned, add the onion and sweet potato. Cook until sweet pitta is softened- about 5-7 minutes. At this point, the hash is done. If you want to make it a single meal, set aside all of the hash except for about 1 cup of the mixture. Add 1-2 scrambled eggs to the hot pan and scramble with the hash.
Sweet and savory and filling! Nom.
And just a little treat for those of you reading... Check out this old pic I found of myself while cleaning last week:
Time certainly does change things. That and a good hairdresser. And better clothes.
Nighty night, friends!
