I’ve Got a Feelin…

That Wednesday is going to ROCK! Yes…you heard me…the self proclaimed Wednesday-hater is saying for the world to hear that WEDNESDAY IS GONNA ROCK! 🙂 Nothing like a little positive though to lift you up, right?!

This morning has been nice…I rocked out 8 miles on the treadmill (3 miles @7.0; 4 miles @7.1; 1 mile @7.2 all with a 1% incline) followed with 20 minutes on the elliptical. I needed to work out some Body Pump soreness! I am drinking some coffee and re-fueling on an egg scramble and a ginormous bowl of blueberry oatbran! Ah…insert BIG SMILE! Then I am headed off to meet my running group for a 2 mile run. Woot! Woot!

Workout OVAH!

Dinner last night was an old classic! It was my Turkey Enchilada Casserole! This is so good and one I haven’t made in quite a while so it was nice to bring it back! 🙂 Note about this recipe…it says that it serves 6 but you could easily get 8 servings out of this! Easily!

Enchilada Goodness

In honor of making Wednesday a HAPPY DAY I am leaving you with some awesome inspirational quotes:

  • The great thing in this world is not where we are but the direction in which we are moving 
  • One day I will not be able to do this; today is NOT that day
  • It  is never too late to become what you might have been
  • What is one of your favorite motivational quotes?

    1. So glad that you’re already having a pumped up day!!! I hope it’s contagious and that I catch it 😉

    2. I need those quotes today – especially the first one …and oh my that casserole! Think I’m going to have to whip that one up …along with some PB Banana bread 🙂

    3. One of my favorite quotes is: “Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.” ~Albert Schweitzer

    4. Yay for the enthusiasm! Wednesday and Thursday are my two favorite days so I am always perky on those two.

      My favorite quote is “the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” and “keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows”

    5. My favorite is:
      When you want something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done!

    6. my favourite quote is a Yoda quote:
      Do or do not, there is no try.

    7. I love enchiladas! Those look great – I’ve bookmarked it to try!

      This quote helps me when my bed seems oh so warm, or I just want to go home and watch tv and veg…

      “Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running.” Sarah Condor

    8. Awesome way to start out your Wednesday!

      I like the quote “To be good is not enough when you dream of being great.” No idea who said it. But it gets me through some tired/stressful days…

    9. Here’s my life motto (seriously, has been since I was like 16):

      “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I hope I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, ‘I used everything You gave me.'” –Erma Bombeck

      Great workout… NOT surprised. 🙂

    10. Again, your am workout amazes me. I seriously hope I can do that someday. Completely blanking on my fav motivational quote. I collapse under pressure, haha.

    11. You are inspiring me to be more positive this morning as well! Go Wednesday!!

    12. Happy Wednesday to you too!! Have a phenomenal day and congrats on an awesome morning workout!! The energy of this post has totally pumped me up 🙂

    13. One of my favorite quotes is “believe you can, believe you can’t, either way you’re right”

    14. At least someone’s enjoying Wednesday! 😉

    15. Dude, I make a very similar casserole called “Taco Pie”. It’s also DELICIOUS!! And rather healthy!

      As I was running (sprinting) this morning, I was thinking “Pain is temporary, quitting is forever”.

    16. Geeez!!!! Just reading your workout makes me exhausted! I wish I could run that much!

    17. Cute photo!!!

      My favorite quotation is Anais Nin – “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

    18. This too shall pass.
      And “the true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you never expect to sit.” -Nelson Henderson

    19. You look way too happy and excited for having just finished 8 miles on a treadmill.

      I have a few favorite quotes.

      This one was printed on the first half marathon training schedule I ever printed and it stuck with me.

      “Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.” – George Patton

      And this one from Lost (which you really should watch by the way).

      “You see this little hole? This moth’s just about to emerge. It’s in there right now, struggling. It’s digging its way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it, take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free. But it would be too weak to survive. The struggle is nature’s way of strengthening it.” – John Locke

      And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a Star Wars quote.

      “Try not. Do… or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda

    20. I can’t say that I have a favorite motivational quote. I need to work on that. I did wake up this morning with the “I can” attitude. I am really working on staying positive since it is so easy to get down in the dumps! Oh, and wow that enchilada casserole looks so good!!!

    21. I agree today is going to be a good day… my day started awesome.. so yay! Thanks for posting the turkey enchilada’s I needed a new recipe for Raymond.

    22. Good days all around! I think I may go take a nap, it’s been a busy one already!

    23. i love that positive attitude girlfrand! keep it up!!
      those enchiladas look AMAZEEEE!

    24. You are such a work out beast! And I’m glad that someone else looks sweaty when they finish their workout! I don’t understand how people can work out and not sweat!

      • Oh I am a sweaty beast!!! But I love it…to me there is nothing better than working hard and having some sweat to show for it! 🙂

    25. LOVE that pic of yoU! thats how i feel after an awesome workout too, and usually covered like taht 🙂

      those enchilads OLEEEE they! look so good!!!

      “The only one who can tell you ‘you can’t ‘ is you. And you don’t have to listen.” – Nike

    26. One of my fav quotes is: “The only way out is through”. I try to remember this when I’m going through something tough.

      Love the enchilada casserole – looks delicious!

    27. YUM!! Love the casserole.

      Here’s my fav quote:

      “The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.”

    28. You crack me up! I love how positive you are every morning. I look forward to your posts to boost me up when I feel like the day is going to be bad… 🙂

      I think I need to find myself a good motivational quote…

      • Thanks Kristen…that is so sweet!! But it is funny because I find inspiration from you…you are such a strong woman! 🙂

    29. haha, i never look that good after a workout!!

      – Beth @ http://www.DiningAndDishing.com

    30. That enchilada casserole looks so, so good!! Love the post workout pic!! 🙂

    31. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.. you are no joke with the workouts! Damn.

    32. “May all of your wishes be granted except one, so you always have something to strive for.”

      HOLY COW! Your workouts are amazing! How did you start running that quickly on an incline? I’ve been trying to run at 1% and am DYING at 6.0. Any tips??

    33. Kelly I love love love that picture of you- sheer joy!! You are so pretty, my dear! Even after a workout!
      Great motivational quotes- I have so many favorites. I always love finding new ones.
      And that casserole you made for dinner made my mouth water! Love it!

    34. I love those quotes. My favorite quote has always been “Enjoy life, theres plenty of time to be dead”

    35. I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”

      D.H. Lawrence

    36. […] last night was lots of leftovers! Keith finished off the last of the enchilada casserole and I polished off the last of the chicken spaghetti. We, personally love leftover! I think almost […]
