Weekly Recap: Back from Sickness, Then Pulled Back

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | fitness

I hate that it’s been so long since my last post, especially since so much has happened!  I’ve learned over these past few months that blogging can be extremely time-consuming with reading, writing, planning, commenting, taking/editing photos, participating in link-ups, etc.  And while I truly do enjoy it all, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming…so I took a little break for a few days.

The last time I posted, I was coming out of a pretty annoying cold.  Thanks for all the well wishes! Fortunately, it passed rather quickly!  I was able to get back to business last week with some much-needed exercise.

But now it seems that it’s come back with a vengeance!  This past weekend I was in NYC for my friend’s 30th birthday.  We had a great time, but I took the Bolt Bus, rode the subway, and shared a room with 3 other people.  Oh yeah, and the temperature was in the 40’s!  By Sunday I had a cough, Monday the sore throat and body aches kicked in (plus more snow and 20 degree weather), and today I’ve got a killer headache and even nastier cough.  So I had to call out sick again, which really bums me out.

I’ve been working on getting lots of rest and drinking lots of tea.  Maybe I’ll try sipping that apple cider vinegar after all?!

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!

Polar Vortex 2014

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!
