Slowly getting there, at least I've reached the 50 mile mark! 

Running outside is pretty difficult. For me especially since I work inside an office all day so I'm not exactly used to being outside in this heat so much, but I'm trying. 

Not too shabby progress since the end of May. Mileage keeps going up each week. I really enjoy mixing up my workouts. Running, Elliptical, Biking. And I always do crunches, push ups and lunges each day, even though I don't always log it/talk about it. I always try to make time for those and am finding ways to squeeze them in, even during making dinner! I'll do lunges in the kitchen while waiting for water to boil, or something else that's cool.

Another healthy thing, here's what we had for dinner last night. Food & exercise in one post!

Homemade Turkey Chipotle Burgers

2 lbs ground turkey
about 10 saltine crackers, smashed up good
3 chipotle peppers, diced w/adobo sauce
about 1 teaspoon garlic salt
about 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
3 green onions, diced

Mix all ingredients in a bowl & grill. I used our George Foreman grill inside. Perfect! Took about 5-8 min each side. I left the seeds in the chipotle peppers and found it had a slight spice/flavor to it but by no means was it spicy. Topped my burger with Chipotle Mayo and spinach. Light, healthy, easy dinner. The 2 lbs came out to 6 patties.

I've never made turkey burgers before so this was an on-the-fly recipe. Turned out great! Love that chipotle flavor!

Enjoy your weekend!
