School has began.. and so has the stress.

Capture

School has started, which makes life a little more interesting and difficult at the same time.

Between classes and going back and forward at work, sometimes I find it hard to blog about my daily exercise. But as most people may say, if you want to get something done you’ll find a way or if you don’t want it done, you’ll find an excuse. I am hope to prove to myself that this year I can keep my resolutions. In order to do so, I have made a short list of things I need to keep in mind. (always)

1. Be honest with myself and others.

2. Only make promises you plan on keeping.

3. You are to blessed to be stressed.

4. We are human and we all make mistakes. Get up and keep moving.

Sometimes when you make a resolution and fail, you decide it is easier to just give up. Well, that is what I would have done last year, actually that is what I did last year. I failed and didn’t think it was worth starting over. But this year, this year has to be different. If not this year, then when?

I want to be the person that I look for in others. I want to be the person that when I go to bed at night, I am happy to be with.

I found that running releases a lot of thoughts and stress, so for this posted I wanted to share my jog with you.

I am fortunate to be at a University that recently created a jogging path. It is located in our Nature Preserve, which gives it beautiful scenery. There are stations with different exercises, like sit-ups and push ups.

Take the time to take a jog around your local park, or Google a jogging or bicycle path around your neighborhood. You will be happy you did.

Dinner- Zucchini Tacos!

Zucchini

Not the prettiest picture, but it sure taste amazing!

Looking for a healthy dinner!! Look no more!

Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies! These here are my zucchini tacos.

You can treat them like regular tacos, add anything you would normally add to your tacos!

Here are the step by step process.

Gather you medium size zucchini, make sure to wash them thoroughly. Then, cut them long length in half.

After cutting them in half, you can use a small spoon to scoop out the inside of the zucchini, making a boat effect. Make sure not to scoop all the way to the end, you what there to be a border so the fillings doesn’t  fall out. (Don’t mind the sliced zucchini, those are for tomorrow’s steak dinner)

Now, that they are all cut and cleaned, you can use a cooking brush to apply a little

oil to the inside of the zucchini, this will help the zucchini cook nicely in the oven.

This step is by all means optional, also spraying a little PAM works just as well.

I cook them for about 10 minutes at about 350, meanwhile I am cooking the ground beef. You can use chicken, turkey ground beef or fajita meat.

Which ever you chose will taste amazing!

Then, you fill them with all the goodies. You add your meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream or plain Greek yogurt and any other yummy condiments.

I eat about two boats, that’s enough to get me filled, which is only 1 zucchini! Amazing huh!

Well, I hope you guys try this recipe out! Let me know how you liked it or didn’t!!

Thanks again everyone for reading! Thanks!!
