Sriracha Chicken Salad

Standard

I made this last night and it was pretty good. I ❤ sriracha!!! I bought a rotisserie chicken to save time (I left the skin on) plus I really hate dealing with raw chicken. I didn't have any scallions or sesame seeds so I put a little sesame seed oil to give it some sesame flavor.

That Was A Bust!

Standard

So last June I was running 2.50 mi twice a week then my schedule got all messed up and I quit. I finally went running again a couple of months ago and I could only manage to run an 11 min mile, which just about killed me. Today I decide to start week 4 day 1 of C25K (run 3 min,walk, run 5min, repeat) since I knew I could run 11 min so surely I would be able to do this since there was walking in between….Negative!! I did half of the workout then I had to stop bc I my lungs were burning so bad and I was winded. I’m going to attempt week 3 day 1 on Friday instead since I’m so out of shape ha. I picked up some new colorful running socks today and ordered some new sports bra’s to help keep me motivated because I’ve got to get some of this weight off. Wish me luck!

After my failed attempt at running I took Phoebe for a walk. She was whining when I went to leave for my run because she thought she was getting to go so I felt bad.

Ha she was so tired but didn’t want to let go of her ball.

After running a few other errands and cleaning a little bit we are finally bumming it up on the couch.

Here are some pictures of him eating…I was going to post a video but it won’t let me. I have seen other WordPress bloggers post videos so I know it can be done but I just haven’t figured it out yet.

Franklin’s New Tank

Standard

I got to Petsmart and I was a little disappointed because the 20 gallon tank on sale was the long one, which is bigger than the cart that I keep Franklin on. However Franklin really needed it and I wasn’t going home empty handed so I bought it anyways. I picked up a pretty cheap water filter as well.

I got Phoebe some Blue Buffalo Valentine’s treats and some new dog food. I got the Purina Beyond Tuna because I think Phoebe has a food allergy to chicken…it had no corn, wheat, soy or by products so fingers crossed.

Anyways back to Franklin….I couldn’t lift the tank once I got the water in it so I had to put the cart underneath the sink so I could push the tank onto the cart. I will have to maneuver that better next time I have to clean his tank.

He <3's it!! He has been swimming his little heart out and enjoying all his room.

My Poor Baby

Standard

Phoebe woke up in the middle
of the night and threw up for the second time in two weeks. I’m not sure if she got too hot sleeping underneath my down comforter but she seems to only do this when she’s eating Beneful, which I know isn’t the best food. I have fed her the high dollar, grain free, and organic food but she doesn’t seem to like it at all…she eats it so slowly and constantly pauses to look at me like mom do I really have to eat this stuff. She wakes me up at 5:30 excited like a kid on Christmas morning and gobbles up her Beneful but it looks like it’s time to change her food for good. I will keep y’all posted on how it works out…wish me luck.

Petsmart is having a sale on tanks so it looks like Franklin will finally be getting a new one and a water filter. When his old one died I went to get another one but they were so huge they would’ve taken up most of his tank and he already had little space. I said I would get him a new water filter when I got him a bigger tank.
