Another quarter of 2016 is in the books. This year feels like the fastest year of my life! Probably because I’m busier than I have been in the past. Working a second job and training for a marathon make everyday jam packed. So here we are in October already. Time for another debt payoff update. Continue reading “Q3 Debt Payoff Update”
I tried to take more picture this week so I would have more to share for Thinking Out Loud Thursday. To be completely honest, if I’m not working or running, I seem to spend most of my time on the couch! Usually telling myself that I’m not being lazy – I’m “recovering” from all the running!
As a result, taking pictures is a challenge. My view is generally the same. I did manage to snap a few pictures this week, but I can’t say their that interesting! Oh well. That’s the freedom of Thinking Out Loud. Continue reading “Tennis, Coloring Books and Mini Tacos”
Sunday long run + 1 hour commute = struggle to get out of car on Monday. This is what marathon training week #10 looks like… Continue reading “Philadelphia Marathon Training Week #10”
Uh oh. I’m in trouble. I’ve taken a grand total of 0 pictures this week which means I have absolutely no where to start on this Thinking Out Loud Thursday! Just bear with me a minute…
Today is a very special day over here at Lively Chicken! For multiple reasons, but mainly because…

Hello, hello, hello! I’ve just realized that drafting this post so early in the week (it’s currently Tuesday) probably contributes to my time flying by so quickly. Because I’m writing like it’s Thursday already and almost the end of the week. But it’s actually only the beginning of the week. Sigh.
Actually, I have mixed feelings about this. I want it to be the end of the work week. But I don’t want the week to be over because that means the marathon is that much closer and I’m not ready!
Let’s just think about some random things today to get away from that scary thought! Continue reading “Football Season, School Lunch & Missed Phone Calls”
This was a weird week of training. Battling a cold and registering for a 5K threw off the usual training schedule. But I got the miles done (mostly) and that’s what counts! Continue reading “Philadelphia Marathon Training Week #8”
There are a lot of budgeting apps out there, but I’ve been using EveryDollar for about a year now. There are things I love about this app and a few things that annoy me. Today I’m sharing an honest review about the EveryDollar budget for those of you who are looking for a new way of tracking your money. Continue reading “An Honest Review of EveryDollar”
Happy Thursday!! So glad it’s almost the weekend again. After doing a lot of relaxing over Labor Day weekend, I’ve been feeling exhausted all week because I’m fighting off a slight cold. So another two days off work can’t come soon enough!
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. After the forecast said the weekend was going to be a washout due to hurricane Hermine, we actually had great running weather here in NJ. Continue reading “My New Favorite Core Workout & Philadelphia Marathon Training Week #7”
