January Recap: Back to School, Meals at Home, Marathon Training!

Anastasia & Rachel + Owen

Hiii friends!! It’s me, Lettuce Attend! Back again! I am getting into the routine of not writing and I can tell it’s affecting my mood…in a negative way. I say this every time I write but I have GOT to make it more of a habit. Blogging is so comforting to me and I need to make it more of a priority. Anywho… life has been pretty great over here! I am back at  school / work and sticking to a pretty good routine of exercising more and making healthy recipes at home.

My roommate Rachel and I (the cutie below!!) are training for a marathon so we have been running and strength training a lot. We have also been cooking the MOST AMAZING meals at home since we both love to cook healthy food. All of our meals always take less than 30 minutes and we honestly love cooking at home rather than eating out! Plus, it save us money in the long run. Above is shredded chicken thighs, roasted veggies (with truffle parmasean seasoning!!), and bread with olive oil.

Another night we made an easy Stir Fry that you can find the recipe for on my Instagram page: CLICK HERE – that recipe uses shrimp but the picture below has steak. I recommend both!

A shameless selfie before a night of going out! I ended up being the DD. I was chugging water in the corner of a bar watching Owen on my dog camera…no shame!

My mornings have consisted of coffee and my She Reads Truth devotional and I am all about it. Spending time with Jesus in the morning changes my whole day and puts me in a much better mood.

Snapped this picture to send to a friend while I was at work…I was cracking up because it wasn’t even 10 am and my friend was like…um…is that all of your coffee from this morning?? HAHA yes! Proudly so.

I also have been trying  out this new skin care line from Athia Skin Care. It’s designed for women who love to workout and sweat, A LOT. I have been LOVING it. I also love that each purchase goes to help out women around the world in need of scholarships for an education. You can read more on the skin care HERE and the company they partner with to help women HERE. You can also use code LETTUCEATTEND for a special discount at checkout!!!

One night my roommate and I walked to a local coffee shop to chat about our days and get some steps in. I literally do not know what I would do without her!
