4 miles to Mexican

My first order of business when I got off work this afternoon was an easy 4 miles.  Easy, peasy, slow pace.  Even if I got bored, keep it slow.

Workout of the Day:  4 miles speed varied but easy pace

  • Finished in just over 37 minutes

Thanks to extremely exhausted legs and cramps (sorry boys), this was a tough run, physically.  Mentally I was determined, but physically my legs felt like lead.  Ehhh…it happens.  It ain’t stoppin’ this girl.  There’s a difference between tired and pain, right?

Mexican Night At The Jara’s


Dinner tonight was brought together with a few greens, bacon, tortillas and a grill.  Odd mixture?  Worth it.


  • 2 small green peppers
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 4 tortillas
  • A couple leaves of romaine
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon juice

  • Large chop the broccoli, peppers and onions
  • Put them in tin foil and put on grill (A total of about 30 minutes)
  • Cut up the romain, tomato, a little left over onion and put it in a small bowl


  • Garnish with garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper
  • Put the bacon directly on the grill (about 10-15 minutes)
  • Put the tortillas on the grill directly (just to warm and blacken)
  • When everything is finished, grab your tortillas, stuff them with the veggies and bacon, garnish with the greens and enjoy!


I love taco night!

Question of the Night: What is your GO-TO taco?  Fish? Beef? Veggie?  Simple?

  1. At a restaurant it’s definitely fish tacos. At home, I stick to ground turkey breast or chicken. We are seriously twinning out right now. My legs were just tired. I somehow managed to get a 3.25 mile jog in (actually went over 0.25 mile than what was scheduled!) on the treadmill WITH cramps as well. WHAT? Are we syncing up across state lines? TMI? Yeah…awkward.

  2. We had taco night last night, zach used ground bison and I used spicy refried beans. Last week taco night I used shrimp which is my fav 🙂
