Boxing + Pedicures= Stress Relief

There is nothing like boxing and a pedicure to feed my soul. Tonight I went to a bags class at my kick boxing gym, I was one SWEATY BEAST! It was nice to just punch away at the bag, there is something so soothing about boxing(sure you haven’t heard those two words in a sentence).

When Hubby picked me up after class he surprised me and told me we were going to get pedicures! (yes I said we).

Here are my grubby feet before I went in. I only get pedicures maybe twice a year because I like my feet to be rough for running :), but these are a little too rough!


There were so many color choices but I always go with some
sort of shade of pink.


It felt so great to soak my feet, something I need to do more often for sure! Once it get’s cooler I can’t wait to give my self more foot baths. 


Hubby was chillaxin and twittering :). 


I was just “soaking” up every moment. 



TA-DA!!! Wow I feel like a women again :). One small step for women, one huge step for this runner!


Tonight I made some Salmon Burgers for dinner that I picked up at Fresh and Easy.

I layered my burger on top of an Arnold’s thin bun with lettuce, garden picked tomatoes, and avocado.

Why have I never had a salmon burger?! These things are so wonderful, I think I could eat these forever in place of a regular beef burger!

I was too hungry to bake my sweet potato fries so I nuked my potato for 6 minutes in the microwave and then drizzled with some brown sugar and agave nectar. What a great alternative!

I also had a small glass of Red to wash down all my lovely eats with.

Such a balanced and delicious meal!

After dinner, the AMAZING HUBBY gave me a massage :). He knows that I have been feeling a little stressed about this whole fire thing, and he sure did pull through, THANKS HONEY!

Fire Update: Looks like the fires have calmed down a lot more now, and we should be safe. I will keep you all updated if anything changes. Thanks again for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers!!!!

I am off to bed early I am going to try and hit the gym at 5:30am before anyone else get’s there. No running outside tomorrow the smoke is too bad.

I think I would really like to go on a spa retreat for my next vacation or at least host one myself, want to come?

Sleep tight friends!
