Oh hello! Long time no talk, right?! I lost my blogging motivation for a couple of weeks but I’m backkkk!
I have a half marathon on Sunday and I’m really not ready for it. And I’m not just saying that to be modest. I’m like really not ready to run a half marathon right now. Just like how I took a break from blogging, I also let working-out and running take a back seat while I focused on moving into our new house. So yeah, this race has crept up on me and I now have 3 days to prep myself.
Yesterday afternoon I went out for an easy 20 minute run around my neighborhood….
and then did a bunch of hill repeats to complete my workout. This involved “sprinting” up a long, steady hill as fast as I could go, jogging down the hill and then resting for 1-2 minutes in between each set. And repeat.
Let me tell ya, I was dying! Hills kick my ass every single time!
In preparation for Cinco De Mayo I decided to prepare a healthy Mexican salad for dinner last night. I picked a couple of ingredients at Trader Joe’s and got to work. I combined the following ingredients in a bowl and used the greek yogurt guacamole as the dressing. It turned out tasting awesome!!
Btw wouldn’t that be nice if we celebrated this holiday with a week long festivities?? A week full of corona lights, margarita’s, tortilla chips and guacamole! 🙂
Healthy, Easy Mexican Shrimp Salad!
- romaine lettuce
- canned corn
- canned black beans
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 cucumber, diced
- Mexican blend shredded cheese
- cooked, marinated shrimp (I used the frozen Thai Lime Shrimp Skewers from Trader Joe’s)
- guacamole (I used the Trader Joe’s greek yogurt guac – so friggen good! This definitely stole the show.)

Before I sign off, I have to show you a pic’ of Rocky from yesterday because a) he begged me and b) it reinforces my belief that I really want to come back as a cat in my next life. Sleep, eat, sleep sounds pretty good to me.
