First Spring Giveaway

Monday was a much-needed Rest Day for me.  My knee bugged me all weekend so instead of swimming after work, I went home. I started by marinading the steak for dinner:

A splash of teriyaki, soy sauce, Worcestershire, splash of red wine, sliced garlic, onion powder, garlic powder and fresh thyme.

I bought a nice cut of steak: Boneless Rib Eye Steak Lip-on (no idea what that meant). It had nice marbling and it was .57 of a pound. It was a good size for us to share.

I peeled and cut up one sweet potato to make fries for us to share as well. I also sliced one zucchini to sautee in a skillet.

I topped some of the zucchini with a tiny bit of herbed goat cheese. The components were all delicious but putting them all together they were WAY salty. I don’t know why because we didn’t really add any salt to any of it.

I photographed Michael’s plate instead of mine because the steak sort of got mangled a bit when we were diving it up. So imagine about half of that size of the steak as mine. 🙂

Now The Giveaway!

I’m cleaning out my closet! I have a running skirt that I bought last Spring but never wore (boo). I took the label off, washed it, and then forgot all about it in the back of my closet for a year. Now? It’s too big and instead of just tossing it, I want to give it away!

Like I said, it’s never been worn and it’s just begging someone to use it. Here are the details:

SIZE: Large

COLOR: Magenta with lavender

It has little shorts underneath the skirt.

  1. I’m not currently training for anything. I just did my first 1/2 marathon in March and I’m just trying to keep up mileage. My next half is in August, the Chicago Rock n Roll Half which I’m running with team DetermiNation!

  2. Cute skirt! I could definitely use it when training for my upcoming half marathons. I am running the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon in less than two weeks.

  3. I would like to hear more about your swimming. You’ve said you’ve always been a natural swimmer, but when did that start? Did you swim in high school?

  4. How cute! I am currently training for my 1st 5K and then starting a 10K plan. I hope to run an actual race this summer.

  5. I am training for the Missoula 1/2 Marathon. It will be my second time running it, the last being in 2009. I would look mighty cute crossing the finish line in that skirt!

  6. Love the skirt! I haven’t planned my next event, but I just ran the Trolley Run in KC on Sunday (the largest timed 4-mile race in the country). I ran all four miles with no walking which is the furthest I have run.

    I know I will do the Race for the Cure in August, but I want to do something before that. My goal is half marathon in late 2012 (I want to travel somewhere for it so I need to plan a vacation around that).

    1. I LOVE the idea of planning a race around a vacation. Before I got injured my boyfriend and I were going to go to Vegas on vacation and so I could run that Half. Oh well, maybe next year!

  7. I love all the healthy recipes so I would love to read more. I’ve tried several. Although I plan on trying the not so healthy mac and cheese one as well (I’m going to wait a month or so – I’m almost to my next weight loss goal).

    1. Thanks! I love it when readers try recipes I’ve done too. It’s nice to hear feedback (and how to do the recipe better sometimes). The mac n’ cheese is a delight but it’s also so high in calories we try not to eat it as often.

  8. I am on Day 1 of my weight loss regime. I was just told yesterday by my doctor to lose weight. I am looking for inspiration and found your website. Your situation reminds me of my own. I need a push in the right direction!

  9. I tweeted it! As far as what else to see on here, I would love to see more about the difference between your life “before” and “after”. I would also love to know about rewards you use. How do you stay motivated, and what goals and rewards do/did you use?
