Thinking Out Loud: Fall Fun

fall fun

Yay for Thinking Out Loud giving me the opportunity to just simply write about a bunch of random thoughts and tidbits throughout the last week!  Well for me, this may stream from throughout the last few weeks, since it’s been a hot minute since I last posted! Seriously though, why do I go on these long hiatuses from blogging when I love it so? I loooove writing, but sometimes I find it hard to gather up all my thoughts to form a cohesive post on a consistent basis unless there’s something really pressing on my mind like this and this post.…

How is it that fall is already peaking around the corner? It feels like just yesterday when I was writing a post on why I love the fall season this time last year, and here we are again just a few short weeks away from pumpkin everything, autumn leaves, and the kickoff to a new football season!

A Thought Provoking Run: Proactive vs. Reactive

  • Posted on August 25, 2016 at 6:00 am

I title this post ‘a’ thought proving run when in actuality every run for me is thought provoking as it’s my time to myself to think and just see where my thoughts drift off too.  That’s the beauty of running. Especially for me. A time that involves a conscious stream of random thoughts, ideas, and feelings with each step that hits the pavement.  I don’t get outside for longer runs very often, typically just once a week, since the remainder of my weekly workouts consist of strength training and soccer but, man, nothing beats running outside while listening to my favorite music…

FINALLY! A new recipe. And a new post.  I’m excited about this one.  My inspiration has been slacking a bit in the kitchen, and since we’ve been hit with such a heat wave, I’ve had little desire to want to turn on the oven.

Day in the Life of Penny

Hello blogging world! Long time no talk. Once again, here I am with long monthly hiatuses from writing consistently on here! I love blogging, I really do, but I’ve been guilty of not taking the time to sit down and write out my thoughts. But nevertheless, I’m here. I’m happy to be back with the hopes of being more consistent.  My recipe creating has been pretty nonexistent lately with life being a bit hectic.  I haven’t delved too much into what’s all been going on, some exciting things, some stressful things, some up-in-the-air kinda things but hey, that’s life right? Today’s…

Taking Time Off

taking time off

I’m just now getting a chance to type out a post about this, but I wanted to touch on a topic that I’ve been thinking out loud about recently after overcoming a minor ankle sprain a few weeks ago: taking time off.  Silly me, I was performing step ups on a bench and thought to myself ‘hmm maybe I should move that dumbbell on the floor, so I don’t accidentally step on it.’ Well, next thing I knew, when I was stepping down from the bench, I stepped on the edge of the dumbbell and rolled my ankle reallllyyy bad.  It swelled instantly.  I felt so…

Thinking Out Loud: Catching Up

catching up

Time for some catching up! Well another month has come and gone and here I am finally back on the blog! Life has been a bit hectic lately, but I figured I’d stop in for a quick thinking out loud post with fellow blogger Amanda to catch up on some random happenings that have been going on lately. 1. The weather here has been all over the place with one day being 85 degrees to a 20 degree temperature drop the next day.  We’re still experiencing unusually cold temperatures and lots of rain for this time of year, so, of course,…

Hellooooo blogging world! I keep going on mini hiatuses on here, but the exciting news is that I FINALLY bought myself a new laptop after 9 great years with my old laptop.  BUT, now this means I can actually create posts without my browser constantly crashing or feeling like I’m in the stone age waiting for things to load.  Yay yay yay, can you tell I’m just a bit overly excited?

Glad to be Back!

glad to be back

Hellooooooo blogging world! Wow, has it really been over a month since the last time I’ve posted?? I wish I could say that my reasoning behind not posting is some super amazing awesome thing like I was off galavanting around the world visiting different countries or something but noppeeee, I just hit a writer’s block. Like I’m talkin’ no true recipe inspiration, nothing majorly exciting to write about, no fun race recaps to report, no great new workouts I’ve created. Zilch.
