Weekly Recap: A Workout Drought and Coaching News!

I have to admit that I’m extremely bummed out.  I’ve been sick with an annoying cold/sore throat/headache/dry cough/sneezing thing since the middle of last week.  So it really put a damper on any goals I had to work out last week.

On top of that we’re having the coldest winter ever in Philly.  Just when I think the Polar Vortex is over, oh wait, here’s another 2 feet of snow, and let’s keep the temperature in the teens and single digits.  It particularly sucks due to having a job that requires spending an extended amount of time outside.  The highways were in really bad shape on Tuesday afternoon as everyone was heading home…I’m grateful I made it back safe.  This cold weather has no end in sight!

This isn’t even all of the snow we got!
I’m not trying to rant of course…I try to have no regrets and make the most of tough situations, but I hope I’ll be well enough to do something active soon!

What I Ate Wednesday: Healthy Turkey Meatballs Recipe

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | nutrition

Howdy!  I found a really cool linkup at Peas and Crayons called What I Ate Wednesday…a lot of other bloggers that I follow participate so I thought it would be fun to get involved!

 

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I’ve been regularly seeing a dietitian, and I have spent a lot of time logging my meals.  Right now, I’m not focusing on that so much, but I think it would be great to share a “slice” of what I eat on a given day on the blog.  Plus, if I make a recipe that I’m particularly proud of, I’d like to share it with you!

So for my first What I Ate Wednesday, I’ll share my Turkey Meatballs Recipe!

Weekly Recap: I’m a Healthy Living Blogger!

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | blogging

Happy Monday…what a nice, long weekend!  Today is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and every year I participate in the Day of Service.  You can usually find me at at a school or community center doing some painting, cleaning, or organizing. This is the first year my boyfriend and I will be doing something together, which means a lot to me since we are literally living “The Dream”.

The weekend was very fun and relaxing.  B and I got together with one of our favorite couples on Friday night and did something that I rarely do…bar hopped!  We had a good time catching up since they’re currently in wedding planning/chaos mode.  We had dinner at one of the newest pizza places, Pizzeria Vetri!  People at the table near us recommended we try the Rotolo and all I can say is WOW!  Great pizza too and at a good price.  I’ll definitely go back!

On Saturday we went to one of the most pathetic Penn basketball games that I can remember.  I could go on for days, but our performance against St. Joe’s was pathetic.  The Hawks went 13-15 from 3 in the first half, most of which were wide open.  All of our starters were benched.  Unbelievable!

Blog Update

In blogging news, I’ve joined a new blogging network.  Run With No Regrets is now a Healthy Living Blog!  Everything hasn’t gone through yet (i.e. I’m still not in their directory), but I’m in!  I look forward to interacting with the site and hopefully getting to know more people!
