Kelly the Culinarian: Three Things Thursday

Three Things Thursday

1. Bowie and Jenny both are feeling better. Thanks to everyone who sent their positive thoughts.  Jenny did not, in fact, have a blood clot, but now we know for sure. Bowie has a pancreas issue and has to be on a special diet, but he's back to his spunky little self.

2. I feel like I'm in a bit of a funk exercise wise.  I'm building a base for Ironman 70.3 Racine, but I kind of lack direction. And I feel tired. And it's really cold outside. And I haven't raced since December, and it did not feel good. It's getting hard to get up at 5 a.m. just to pal around and work out. I'm looking forward to starting a training plan.
I feel you, lazy puppy
3. I have a series of very special guest posts written by my very favorite Naperville photographer, Kate. Come back tomorrow and learn about how she's feeding her family of four using a freezer to crock pot strategy. And ya'll know I pink puffy heart my crock pot.

Kelly! I feel your morning workout pain (4:40- holla')! And if you ever need a motivational boost, let me know- we can tweet encouragement!

I currently lean on my bf to keep me accountable. He works nights during the winter and holds me extremely accountable on my "hey i just woke up and am heading to the gym and have nothing intelligent to say but 'hi'" texts. It truthfully works bc I've rarely slept in...

That would be awesome! I need something this time of year to draw me out of bed.

When do you start your training plan? Maybe an interim training plan would help?

Happy to hear everyone is doing better!
