11 Miles on the Treadmill?!

Good morning!! Happy Sunday!!


Sadie says hello!! We are still covered in ice here… that’s not good news for my long run today :(






At least the sun is out and it's making the ice look sparkly!!


Let’s rewind to yesterday…

Lunch was prior to my store adventure, so it was some more freezer soup.


Not really sure what it was, I think some type of Chicken Tortilla soup! It was yummy!


With some chips and salsa!!


After lunch, I decided to venture out to the grocery store and to rent some movies. The main roads weren’t bad because the snow plow was out plowing them, but my neighborhood and the parking lots were still solid ice. FYI it’s super hard to steer a full shopping cart on ice. I kept getting stuck!! Haha! But I made it back and was so happy to actually have some food in the pantry and movies to watch!!

After my shopping adventure, I settled on the couch with Sadie to watch Julie and Julia. I am just now finally getting to see this movie!! It was AWESOME!! Kinda cool to be able to relate to the main character in the food blogging aspect!! I definitely recommend this movie!!!

While watching Julie and Julia, I had my favorite afternoon snack! Home made trail mix and tea!!


Trail mix made with dark chocolate chips, peanuts, Oh’s, and Quaker Crack that I stocked up on at the store!! Along with some Chai Spice Black Tea with a tiny bit of sugar and skim milk! YUM!



Since we didn’t have Friday pizza night this week, we decided a Saturday pizza night was definitely in order!! On the menu: BBQ Chicken Pizza!! My fav!


Start out with a cooked chicken breast, shredded, and mixed with your favorite BBQ sauce.


I picked this up yesterday! One of the only brands I could find without HFCS!


Pretty good ingredient list! I take Sugar and Molasses over HFCS any day!!


Next, spread BBQ sauce over the pizza crust. We like the Boboli ones best!! They are amazing!!


Pile with toppings!! I used sliced onion, jalapenos, chopped, cooked spinach, and the chicken, of course!!


Top with mozzarella cheese and bake!!


I had this X2!! Love, love, love this pizza!!


I also enjoyed one of these Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Beers that came highly recommended by Melissa!! Both the fiancé and I loved it!! Thanks for the suggestion girl! Also love that it’s semi-local(made in MS)!!


In a fishing beer glass, nice right?! Ha!


And a cookie and a half for dessert!! And these were the last of the cookies! The fiancé ate them all! Haha! He is requesting more, so I may make another batch today!!

While having pizza night, we watched the movie Surrogates with Bruce Willis. It was pretty good, kind of odd though! Another future type movie. We have been renting a lot of those lately! But I love Bruce Willis!!


Back to today…

I was able to sleep in today and got up around 7:45am! Nice!! I whipped up a yummy breakfast after doing my Bible study.


I made my Banana Oatmeal base and added 1 TBSP raisins, 2 TBSP Pumpkin Granola, and 1 TBSP NM PB! I am trying to be better about actually measuring my food so I don’t over do it!! It was delicious! Natch.


And some coffee in my running mug to get my running motivation going!!


So, I have an 11 miler on the schedule for today. As I said before, everything is still iced over. The main roads are ok, but there’s no way I’m running in the street on the main roads! I would totally get run over! When they plowed the snow and ice, they plowed it onto all the sidewalks so they are completely covered :( And, if my driveway and yard are still solid ice, I’m sure the running paths I normally run on are also. So this basically leaves me with one option: The Treadmill. I have no clue if I will be able to do 11 miles on the treadmill. Not because of physical reasons, but because of mental ones! I don’t think I’ve ever ran more than 6 miles at a time on the treadmill! I’m gonna try though! I really want to get this long run in! I have Firefly Lane I can listen to and I rented Ghost of Girlfriend’s Past to watch also! So hopefully I can get through this!!

What’s the longest run you have done on the treadmill? Any tips?!?


Apparently, it’s supposed to get up to 34* today so hopefully some of the ice will melt! And we are going to be back up in the 40’s and 50’s this coming week! Yeah!! So over this ice stuff!! Well guys, gotta get going! I will be back later with my run recap and a fun post about how I’m doing so far with my resolutions!! Take care and have a GREAT Sunday!!


  1. I'm glad you loved the Southern Pecan! It's one of my new favorites!! I will definitely be making that pizza soon! It looks incredible!!

  2. I'm pretty much a failure at long distances on the treadmill. The longest I've gone is 6. I just hate that darn thing.

  3. I don't think i've said this but your dog is really cute! Saw that you did 8 on the treadmill! AWESOME. So hard to go far on that thing! I did 10 once...so long, so boring
