Goodies: Get Fit

January 30, 2013

First of all - thank you for the sweet comments on yesterday's post! I'm so glad you all liked how I styled a summer maxi dress for winter!

Today, I'm linking up with Shanna because I want in on the randomness. And I have a funny story to tell. We'll get there soon - but I figured I'd give a little update on my goal of eating healthier and working out more.

1. I used a gift card from Christmas to buy workout gear from Old Navy. Yes, you read that right. I figured cute, obnoxiously bright workout clothes will help motivate me. And so far it's working! Old Navy's Active line is fantastic if you're looking for affordable workout wear. (This is not a sponsored post - I just use and like the line.)

2. After I abandoned the cleanse, what to do with all that almond milk?! I found the recipe for blueberry muffins made with said almond milk online and you'd never know they're "different." Which is good because I'm picky. [recipe here] If you have any other good recipes, send them my way!

3. During a recent trip to Target with Matt, I volunteered to get the Valentine's Day candy because I like pink and red m&m's and chocolate in general. I went a little overboard - so it's time to also work on my self-control.

4. A healthy Pinterecipe - skinny chicken parm turned out AH-MAZING. Matt and I couldn't stop mumbling how good it was as we inhaled it. I am definitely going to be adding it to my recipe binder and dinner rotation.

Now here's my story (if you're still reading). Since the sun was out yesterday and I didn't even need a coat to get the mail, I decided to go for a run. (I'm still building up my endurance, mind you, so I knew it'd be tough.) My ankles hurt, my nose was runny and I had an itch in my throat that would not go away so I kept coughing. I must've looked like I was struggling because a police officer stopped to ask if I was okay. Since my mind was racing & trying to figure out what sort of law I was breaking as he pulled up, I was only able to spit out 'Oh I'm fine! Thank you though!' Real smooth, Alissa.

To follow along with my Get Fit resolution, #ootd or for many more photos that don't make the blog- you can find me on Instagram @alkfeelinggood or here.

P.S. - I'd love it if you could fill out my reader survey!!


  1. Oo thank you for linking to the healthy Chicken Parm recipe, I'll definitely be trying this :)

  2. Pinning that recipe now!
    That is so funny about a cop pulling over for you while you were running, haha, that sounds like something that would happen to me, lol

  3. Hah. I love that a cop stopped you. Ha. Amazing.

  4. Haha, that is so funny that the cop came over! I make a similar healthy chicken parm that uses croutons as the breading. :)

  5. Awe poor you ... I think I would have died of embarrassment! You are a trooper! You'll be running like the wind in no time. When I started running I would constantly get shin pains ... I bought new shoes and pains went away. So you might want to check out some fab new runners =)

  6. I would have had a police man pull over and call EMS if he saw me running. I would have been laid flat out on the ground! LOL! Thanks a million for linking up!! Love ya!

  7. m&m's always make me feel good!

    Building endurance is hard, just keep at it!

  8. I need to check out Old Navy for work out clothes! And that's such a crazy story about the cop!


  9. no self control for me either when it comes to chocolate!


Thank you for reading and taking the time to send a message. xoxo
