Hydration Tips

In order to get my 8 cups of water in a day I cut up a lemon into 4 wedges.

I then squeeze the juice into each time I fill up my water glass.

In no time I drink 4 glasses of water throughout the work day.

I also drink 1 cup with each meal and a water bottle per workout.

Try this and there are also added benefit to lemon juice and booting your metabolism!

Happy Friday!!!

Avocado Salmon Dinner

11160_2097740958078_78946616_n

Press seasonings  (salt, pepper, chili flakes, and minced garlic) onto salmon

Wrap salmon in foil and then into the oven at  425 degrees

20mins for sea level & 25 minutes for high altitude

I like to add fresh citrus on top either lemon or lime

Then cut some avocado slices and enjoy

Yummy in my tummy!!!

Austin Adventure!

   Hello Bloggers, Family and Friends!

Jenn is now a working resident in the city of Austin, Texas.

And here is the adventure of the 2 JET’s road trip to the dirty south.

To start our day Daddy Jay made us a fantastic smoothie.

We then said our goodbyes…

(and yes there were tears)

After 10 hours of driving and some interesting scenery,

We stopped at our first destination… Lubbock, Texas.

Sarah let us stay at her place and took us to get some TexMex at Chuy’s.

Now my turn to drive…

8 hours later we arrived in Austin, Texas.

Jenn is all moved into her new place.

Erica flew in this night and we checked out the city.

The next morning I went on a running adventure.

Came across this amazing graffiti wall.

And the Rowing center where I Am sure Lance Armstrong

And Matthew McConaughey get their work out on.

Here is a great shot of the city.

Really exceeded my expectations.

The weather was great (but it is winter…)

We then headed to the Salt Lick.

Had some great BBQ chicken!

Had a great trip to Austin. Running down there was a breeze! So many fun and active people.

The music and night life exceeded my expectations as well.

The training continues, 3 weeks into my half marathon training.

The weather in Colorado is perfect for my 3.5 miler today. Rock out runners!!!

This was so sweet. Thanks JJ for the amazing blog post.

Treadmill Track Workout

Start with 5 sets and then increase each time you do this workout.

Make sure to do build and this will improve your mile time!

I also like to add an incline of 2 to make it more challenging.

Happy Running and Health!

New Year, New Me… One set back.

One thing stopping me. Being some kind of sick. Hoping to get to 100% soon. Really sucks being sick. I have zero energy to do anything physical. So trying to keep up with healthier eating. Hope everyone is having a good start to their year. I do not believe new years resolutions but just being happy and living my dream. Hopefully I can get my new workout up here soon. Stay healthy!!!
