Loving it Outside

May 6, 2016

Yesterday was spent mostly outside, and I loved it. Today’s high? 82. It should be another beautiful day spent outside!

Yesterday I walked, I mowed, and I babysat Char and we went to a patio party for Cinco De Mayo.

I walked 5 miles yesterday and that puts my total miles for the month at 12. I’d like to have 25 miles in by the 8th, and that means 4+ miles a day for the next three days.

How’s everyone doing on the 100 Mile Walking Challenge? Keep me posted!


I mowed my yard yesterday and now everything is so nice and green, it’s time for some flowers. Mother’s Day weekend always seems like a great weekend to do that, so maybe I’ll get some purchased today.

I filled up the crockpot with frozen Chicken Breast, Homemade Taco Seasoning and Salsa, so we will be eating on that for a few days.



Cook all day, shred. So easy and so many things you can make with it!



Last night, a friend of ours had a few people over for a little Cinco De Mayo party. I was babysitting my granddaughter, and I decided to load up the wagon with toys and snacks and walk to the party.



Char made all sorts of new friends, but she was a total flirt and seemed to gravitate towards the guys. She apparently doesn’t have a shy bone in her body. Everyone was super sweet and gave her their attention.


Here are yesterday’s eats….

(I made a ton of Roasted Butternut Squash and Taco Meat to take on my girls trip. I have so much left over, that’s all I’ve been eating!)

Breakfast – 7 SP

Two Eggs over Roasted Butternut Squash with Avocado. Bananas cooked in Coconut Oil in the skillet, sprinkled with Sea Salt and a dash of Cinnamon.




Lunch – 10 SP

Taco Bowl with Taco Meat, Cilantro Lime Caulirice, Roasted Butternut Squash, Smashed Avocado and Roasted Plantains.




One Beer at the party – 5 SP

Dinner at home – 6 SP

Chicken on Corn Tortilla’s with Goat Cheese and fresh squeezed Lime Juice. Plantains.


These are my 2016 Goals

    I love grandkid time. They are just so stinkin cute and you know they love you.

    I have discovered in my past walking challenges that getting in just over 3 miles a day is the best way to complete the challenge without any stress. Day 1 I walked 2 miles, Days 2 and 3 I was on my girls trip and didn’t walk at all, so I feel like I keep playing catch up. I’ll get there. Hope you stick it out with me!

    Happy Monday Ronda and have a great week!



  2. Char is adorable! Our grandkids have been in Georgia for the past month (visiting their dad/our son, who is there at a 4 month training session), but the good news is that our DIL is coming to stay with us in another week and half, and staying for a week with the two kiddos – so Brian and I will be in grandparent bliss!! My walking goals are not doing so hot – I’ve been fighting a cold and have layied low all weekend trying to get over it… But I haven’t given up!!! =) thanks for keeping us all accountable! Ronda

    Latiffany! You are killing this challenge! I gotta pick up my game! I’m so glad you joined me for this challenge and I’m so glad you are excited. I did six 5K’s last year, and have yet to do ONE this year. You are doing great! Keep up the great work, and remember, every time you comment, that’s one more entry for the Flip Belt!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you too! Good Luck at your 5K. What a great way to spend time with your daughter!


  6. Your meals look so yummy! I knocked out 20 miles this week. I’m doing a 5k on Sunday for Breast Cancer. I’ll be walking with my daughter, so I’m really excited. Have a great Mother’s Day!
