What’s for Dinner? {Week of August 7}

Stonyfield Farm Tour | happyfitmama.com

Hey guys!

My heart, head and belly are so full from an amazing weekend of touring organic farms with Stonyfield. Farming, especially dairy farming, is not a glamorous job. It takes dedication, commitment and an overall love of what you do to survive. The farmers we met…simply amazing. And the food. OMG. So good!

I’m still trying to process it all to put it into words. I’ll hopefully have the full recap ready by Wednesday.

Speaking of food…

What’s for dinner this week?

Sunday: traveling

Monday: Pick your egg sandwiches or over greens (for me)

Tuesday: Grilled Chicken over Rainbow Bowls

Wednesday: Grilled shrimp with Kale Blueberry Superfood Salad

Thursday: Black Bean Corn and Avocado Wraps or as a dip

Friday: Wing it – I’m going to a SUP Yoga class! :)

Saturday: Pizza night

High Five Friday

High Five Friday August 5 2016  happyfitmama.com

Happy High Five Friday!

Want to get in on High Five-in’ good things from the week? You can find all the details HERE. Make it your own and have some fun with it. The only rule is that it has to be good things.

This Friday is even better than usual. I’m headed out to Vermont for a weekend of farm hopping with Stonyfield. It’s going to be a blast and so informative too. You can follow along with all the fun on Facebook and Instagram. Btw – What do you think of the Instagram stories? I kind of like it. Watch out Snapchat!

5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram. Are you following me?

Sunrise beach running with Katie. It was so fun to meet another Blend (blog + friend if you were wondering what that means!). I took her for a 4 miler along one of my favorite routes on the seacoast.

Stonyfield sent a goodie box with the cutest cards this past week. It made my excitement grow even more for the farm tours.

Running doesn’t get easier. You just get stronger. That line popped into my head a few times while doing 8 x 2:00 Fartleks on Tuesday morning. It’s so true!

Last Friday I attended an Inversion Yoga Workshop and learned some new to me poses to play around with. I kind of am digging the forearm handstand. Now to work on letting my toes get off the wall longer than 2.2 seconds!

10 miles of blue skies along a route I haven’t run in 2 years. I forgot how much I like it! Lots of rolling hills with some dirt thrown in for good measure. It’s the perfect route for training for the Leaf Peepers Half Marathon that we are running as part of Rise.Run.Retreat.

5 Things

Andrew Drummond’s White Mountain Direttissima – This local NH guy completed the White Mountain Direttissima (Italian for most direct route) and aired it all on social media. It was awesome to follow along and see his progress. You should follow him on Instagram too. He posts some rad pics!

Core Nourishment Podcast – My friend Annie recently started a podcast and it’s fantastic. This podcast is designed to empower, inspire, ignite presence, purpose, and intention in your day. I’ve listened to the first 3 and they kept me listening and wanting to join in on the conversation. Check it out!

How to Be a Role Model for Girls – In a world where a lot of girls don’t know who to look up to or how to act properly, we need more women to stand up and show them how it’s done. Not only if you have a daughter. Be a role model for all girls.

Declaration of Confidence – This post from Sarah is spot on. You are control of your confidence. Don’t let ANYTHING tell you otherwise. This -> “Don’t waste it letting lies run the show. It’s time we stop lying to ourselves. It’s time to make a declaration of confidence”.

Apple Adds More Gender Diverse Emoji’s – FINALLY! Although, if I’m being picky, did it have to be a woman runner with her hair down? Who runs like that???

Would You Rather…

I recently saw a fun game of Would You Rather… in the latest issue of Level Renner. If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, I’m sure you’ve played it at one time or another. Except back then it was Would You Rather…go out Jordon or Joey from New Kids on the Block? Team Joey – No question!

I love stuff like this so I had to play along with it. Feel free to play along too!

Would You Rather…be a trail runner or road burner?

Right now, the trails are calling me. I haven’t done much of it lately for fear of rolling my ankle again. But the ankle is feeling better so I expect to reconnect with the dirt ASAP.

Would You Rather…be a mountain goat  or flatland gazelle?

The mountains are calling and I must answer. Mount Washington sparked a need for climbing in me. I missed out on a couple of big mountain races in July because of my foot but I’m on the look out for something coming up this summer or fall.

Would You Rather…be a short distance specialist or long distance grinder?

I have zero interest in running super long right now. Anything over 14 miles sounds horrible. I’m very happy running shorter distances and working on speed right now. So I guess I’m somewhere in the middle – not too short, not too long, but just right (for me!).

Would You Rather…be a solo runner or run in a group?

I’m looking for new running buddies to add a little variety into my solo runs.

Would You Rather…PR in the 5k or marathon?

Can I have both? Although right now, I’d be happy with a 5k. Or 10k. Or 10 miler. Or half. Ok, I want it all!

Would You Rather…be an even pacer or a negative splitter?

I dream of becoming a negative splitter! It’s something I’m constantly striving for.

Would You Rather…run at dawn or dusk?

Is this really a question? Dawn, hands down.

Would You Rather…run on the track or the treadmill?

Track. It’s become a huge confidence booster in my running over the past few years. It scares the pants off me but the feeling after a hard workout? Total runners high.

Would You Rather…be a GPS junkie or run by feel?

Run by feel. Since returning to running after my injury last year, I have found I really don’t care about all the data by GPS provides me. I run with it, but I mostly use it for mileage.

Would You Rather…be a front runner or a late surger?

Late surger. I do much better chasing down the pack than leading it.

Would You Rather…run a Beer Mile or a Donut Mile?

My beer chugging days have long past. If I was in high school or college, I’d be a champ. I’d have a better chance with donuts right now. Four donuts – how bad could that be? Lol. I’m sure I’d puke and be disqualified.

Linking up with Wild Workout Wednesday and The Coaches’ Corner.

Your turn! What would you rather…
