Half Marathon Zen Labs

Half Marathon Zen Labs – Well, I chose my half marathon training plan. I looked through a bunch of them, but this one seemed right up my alley. I found it on Pinterest via the I Heart Vegetables blog (cheesy, I know) but it looks like it’s originally from a fitness magazine. Since this is a 10 week program, I officially start it on Monday, February 26th. So, since it’s a bit far, I’m just going to stick with running 3-4 times a week for now and cross training another 3-4 days. At this point, the furthest I’ve gone is 4 miles and boy, did I feel good!

I recently made spaghetti squash for dinner but had some left over. I found this recipe on Pinterest (here’s the original link) that uses leftovers and is easy, delicious, and low in calories. You will notice that I changed the recipe slightly to use what I had in the fridge. You’ll also notice that the amount of ingredients is a little vague. This is because you can use as many as you like! Since the frittatas are egg based, I’m including this in the “breakfast” section, but you can really make it for dinner too, in fact I’ll probably have leftovers for dinner tonight!

1. Spray a non-stick pan with hot spaghetti squash (spread in an even layer on the pan) over medium heat. You just want to crisp up the bottom a bit, so this will probably take 3-4 minutes.

2. Pour the vegetables over the spaghetti squash in a somewhat even layer. At this point, I turned the heat down to low because I didn’t want to burn the spaghetti squash.

3. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. You can add a little milk if you want, but I didn’t have any.

4. Pour the eggs over the spaghetti squash and vegetables. You want to try to get eggs everywhere. I gave the pan a little shake while the eggs were soaking to get into the spaghetti squash.

5. Cook over low heat, covered (the steam will help wilt the spinach and the frittata will come away from the pan a bit) until just cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.

6. Put the whole pan (without the lid) in the oven on the broil for approximately 3 minutes until it finishes cooking and it gets a good color.

You can really use whatever veggies you have on hand in this frittata. You can add mushrooms, peppers or even meat and cheese. If I add meat, I cook or brown it first. If I use cheese, I add it right before putting the pan in the oven. If you want, you can also add some garlic or herbs. Pesto or some salsa would be a nice touch too!

This whole frittata was only 404 calories! I ate half of breakfast and I was full! When it comes to health and satiety, you can’t get much better than that! [My problem with a lot of “healthy” foods is that they don’t fill me up, but that’s definitely not the case here.]

Seafood has always been one of my favorite foods to eat. And not just fish! Anything from scallops to crab to oysters, you name it and I’ll probably love it. For some reason, fish seem to scare people. I feel like there are a lot of people who don’t even try it. It’s a real shame because it’s so delicious and good for you! I try not to get on my soapbox, but I have a real problem with people who won’t try new things. All that to say, this salmon recipe (originally from allrecipes.com) is so delicious, I think even your non-fish-loving friends will enjoy it!

2. Place salmon and marinade in a shallow glass baking dish, cover and refrigerate. Use what you have – a pie pan works as a shallow glass container, or you can even throw it all in a gallon ziplock bag.

3. The original instructions say to marinate it for 30 minutes, turning once. [When I made this, I left it on for over an hour while I went to the gym. Overtime didn’t seem to hurt. ]

5. Place the glass dish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork. If you used a ziploc for the marinade, you should transfer it to a glass baking dish. You want the dish you use to be large enough so that the salmon is in just one layer – without crowding. Be sure to leave the marinade in the dish with the salmon during cooking.

The trick with salmon is not to overcook it. It will be dry and gross. I make so much that I can finally look at it and see if it’s done. If it doesn’t for you, take a fork and dig into the thickest part of your salmon. If you can peel it off, you’re done. It should be pink but not raw like when you marinated it. I know this flaking technique will ruin the look of it in your Instagram photo, but I promise it will taste just as delicious as it does in one piece!

Also note that even if you are not making a pound of salmon, you can make this same marinade. I just made a piece for myself.

For today’s post, I decided to step out of my comfort zone a little. Selfies aren’t really my thing…except on Snapchat. 🙂 Anyway, lately I’ve been thinking about how styles and trends change over time and where people get their inspiration from. I’m not very creative and I definitely wouldn’t call myself a fashionista, but I’m pretty good at copying other people.

A lot of my outfit ideas come from Pinterest. I feel like it’s cliche…but hey! Isn’t ideas and copy what Pinterest is for?!

This is a look I found on Pinterest and never would have put together.. but I love it!

Another source of inspiration that I came across unexpectedly one day is Karla Reed’s Instagram. She posts a lot of what she wears, along with some personal stuff. Someone I follow on Instagram liked one of her photos and I saw it and thought it was cute. Naturally, I checked out his pictures and decided he was worth following! She also has an additional Instagram account called chichthrifty where she sells amazing things she finds at thrift stores. Turns out, there’s a small community of Instagram stores! I haven’t bought anything from either of them yet, but they have great deals.

As a twenty-something who hasn’t been in the working world long, I’m definitely not “rolling in the dough.” Most of my clothing and accessories purchases are from the sale section. The thought of buying something at full price makes my stomach turn. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good name brand piece, but I just try to stay away from name brand prices. (The exception is if it’s from a store like Forever 21 or TJ Maxx.) I wish I had more time to thrift, but it never seems to work out and when I do, I never find anything great. I think I’ll leave that to Carla.

My other trick for dressing nice on a budget is to wear older clothes. Everyone has those clothes that are pushed to the back of your closet and you don’t seem to wear them much anymore. With the help of Pinterest as inspiration, you can learn how to style those pieces differently, which gives you many more outfit options!

All of which leads me to what I wore this week. As my first “what I wore” post, I decided to share what I wore to work. I love getting dressed for work, but sometimes it can be a challenge, for example, when the wind chill is in the single digits. Luckily, it wasn’t that cold this week! The dress code in my office is business casual. For me, it’s challenging because people have very different ideas of what business casual is. I work at a non-profit, so sometimes our business is a little more casual than if you worked at a bank or law firm.

Disclaimer: I tried to remember where I got all the parts, but sometimes that can be a bit of a challenge. Links are to the specific piece if it’s still available, or something similar, or just the store in general if I can’t find anything similar.

I was running late on Tuesday, so I went for a more relaxed look. This week has been warmer than it has been in a while, so I was loving the skirt, until the cold front rolled in that I was oblivious to. Usual.

Wednesday was a bit colder, so
