Another Boston Snow Storm

As I am sure most of you are aware, Boston is getting hit with another giant snow storm as we speak. It started early Sunday morning and should continue to snow through Monday night. I know a lot of people hate all this snow, and I have to admit, it is a bit annoying, but in general, I really enjoy it. There are so many fun things to do in the snow and I love snow days cuddled up on the couch, drinking hot coco and relaxing in front of the fire.

Snowy Day

Because of all the snow, Vinnie and I had a pretty mellow weekend. I have been slacking a bit getting all my runs in for my half marathon especially with all the snow so I was concerned about not fitting in my long runs but I manage to run both days!


On Saturday we made it out of the house around 11am to pick up groceries for the week and run some errands. I amvdetermined to have healthy food in house and make smart snack and meal decisions this week. We did a big food haul at Trader Joe’s full of veggies, lean meat and lots of fruit.

After our shop we rushed up to Melrose because there was an open house we wanted to check out. I know, kinda random, but we are always on the look out for a home and when something pops up we try to go see it because you never know! And, this house was so cute, in a great location and really affordable. We are considering placing an offer… we are on the fence because we love living in Charlestown… just sick of renting.

After the open house we walked around Main St of Melrose which is super quaint with tons of shops and restaurants. We stopped into Stearns & Hills Bistro for a late lunch and it was delicious.

By the time we got home it was late afternoon. I needed to sweat and clear my mind, so I rushed to the YMCA. I was planning on doing something light and easy but I jumped on the treadmill and ended up running for 60 min. It was a slow pace, but it felt good. I watched Kids Baking Championship on Food Network the whole time. Have you seen it?! It’s pretty funny and they are good cooks!

Empty Gym!

After my treadmill run, I did 15 minutes of toning exercises before  they kicked me out because they were closing. I shut down the gym on a Saturday night! #sweetlife #fitgirlproblems


Sunday was a day full of meal prepping and running. I had 12 miles on the training plan and the thought of doing it on the treadmill was terrible so I bundled up and ran 12 long snowy miles outside in the snow storm. It wasn’t easy, but I had a lot more fun than if I was inside going nowhere on the treadmill! I will write more about my decision to run outside in a snow storm tomorrow so check back.

After my run,  I was exhausted so I took a few hours to recoup but I eventually got off the couch and did a ton of meal prep for the week. I honestly think I have too much food!Meal Prep2

I made BBQ pulled chicken and cole slaw to go with it, homemade hummus and sliced veggies, quinoa, protein pancakes, a loaded veggie egg bake, tofu and sliced strawberries. This doesn’t include all the other food I have in my fridge that doesn’t need slicing, dicing and cooking like carrots, apples, grapefruit, lettuce, kale, etc.

Andddd I didn’t even watch the Grammys. Vinnie wouldn’t watch the red carpet and by the time the show came on, I had completely forgotten about it! Were they good? I need to go and check out all the glamorous dressing and watch all the performances on youtube.

I am going to link up with Katie for Marvelous Monday and Biana for Weekending. Share the best part of your weekend… did you do anything marvelous!?

  1. I like the snow too if I don’t have to go out or miss so many days of work. It’s been falling on the days I work and then I have a day or two off after so it’s like okay I need to get out lol! Hopefully they clean this one up faster then last time in my area. Stay warm and safe! 🙂

  2. You do such a great job with all of your food prep! That is really impressive! I haven’t heard of that kid’s baking how but I need to check it out. I love watching Master Chef Junior! I am totally amazed at these little kids who are better cooks than me! Not that I’m an amazing cook in any way, but still…they are just incredible!

  3. Wow! 12 miles in the snow sounds like an adventure! You’re motivated. 🙂 Keep up the running. <3 all that snow. Wish you could send some our way. We do have some pretty sunshine though.
