Happy Thursday, ya’ll. (: This picture is relevant because that’s me declaring my major…a degree in which I will officially earn in May! College is great, but it’s four small years in an entire life I have been given. What’s next? The World Race! In September, I will be embarking on an eleven month-long mission trip that reaches to three countries in Africa, four countries in Eastern Europe, and four countries in Asia. This summer, after I graduate but before I leave, I am going to focus on working, fundraising and preparing to go.
I have my life far from planned out, but hey. We’re only asked to do the next thing. One step at a time.
“And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.’”
This is one of my latest clean eating suppers. It is so so tasty, and equally as easy.
4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
pinch of salt
1 1/3 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
The seasoning amounts are just guesses…season to taste. Throw everything together, let it simmer awhile on the stove, bake the potatoes in the microwave, and put the mixture on top of the potato, with cheese if you like. The picture isn’t great because I took it. That’s enough explanation. But I promise it’s tasty!
(^sweaty and completely exhausted, but oh, so happy.)
OH YEAH! During my tumblr hiatus I ran my first half marathon! I drove 10 hours down to Atlanta for a weekend so I could run with my brother-in-law. The consensus is that half marathons are so. much. fun. I loved it! Miles 8-10 were tough, but then I bounced back and felt great during the last couple of miles. I used Hal Higdon’s half marathon training program to keep myself on track while training. I really like his program because it incorporates strength training and cross training, which I think are both pretty important to staying injury free.
I’ve already picked out my second half-marathon, which is in Illinois in April. yayyy. (:
