February Mileage

February was the coldest and snowiest month here in Chicago for our winter season. I started half marathon training which means I have started the strict mileage schedule, although the first month of training is the easiest. I did 3 miles and abs on Mondays, 3 miles and legs on Tuesday, speed work and arms on Wednesdays, I stuck with my […]

Homemade Calzones

Homemade Calzones

I have been craving a delicious calzone for a few weeks. I haven’t been able to find a good spot close to my work to grab one either. Back in the college days my roommates and I would frequently order cheesy greasy calzones from Lukulo’s. They were the best calzone I have had! Since I […]

Healthy Chicken Enchiladas

Healthy Chicken Enchiladas

Have I told you how much I looooove Mexican food! Sometimes the calorie and fat content can quickly add up when it comes to Mexican. I created an Enchilada recipe that is both satisfying and won’t “break the bank” on your calorie intake. When I was making this recipe last I had a hard time […]
