Hey everyone! How was your week? Mine was AWESOME! Finally getting my schedule under control! PHEW!! 

I ran a 5 mile AND a 10 mile race on Saturday and did SO GOOD!! PRs on both! And they were back to back! That excites me!!!

Other than that I am getting a little nervous...only 38 days until Oceanside 70.3. and less than 6 months until the IRONMAN!! I haven't been on my bike outside in almost 17 months. Starting in March I will take it outside every day it's not snowing or freezing :)

I am  grateful for my body being good to me even when I abuse it. I haven't been eating great the past few weeks but I still feel pretty good physically!

Happy Hump Day!!

See you next week!!
Kirsten :)

Easy Vegan Meals
2 of My Faves

I want to give people the most delicious and exciting recipes I can find to give them a great plant-based experience. But the truth is, I won't ever make most of these meals myself because it seems like a lot of time, energy, and effort I would rather put into another part of my life.

Now if I had a personal chef, it would be an entirely different story!! I would have him make me these incredible and thoughtful dishes 24/7. But as it stands, it's just me and it's just not going to happen!

I Crashed My Car 
and I Didn't Cry

Before I tell you what happened on Monday, let me just tell you a bit about myself and how I have dealt with money and financial crises over the past 30 years.

I have always had very unhealthy emotional issues when money was involved. I know the issue runs deeper than this, but usually it starts with "I never had any."

I have been known to cry my eyes out while talking with credit card companies, my bank, car dealerships, and utilities companies when my bill was $10 higher than I expected it to be or there was an extra charge I wasn't counting on for the month.
