Thursday Triumph: Healthy Choices

It's that time of the week again - time to link up with the AMAZING Smitha and FABULOUS Linzie for another edition of Thursday Triumph. LOVE that you all are joining in on the fun! Thanks in advance for linking up with the three of us!

Wanna know what is EXTRA EXCITING?! The three of us will see each other this weekend! Yup - the brains behind Thursday Triumph (more them, I am just along for the ride) will be meeting up during this Rock N Roll San Diego weekend!

PS There are TONS of events going on, so check out Pavement Runner's recent post so you don't miss out on any of the fun. And just a reminder, you do NOT need to be running in any of the races to come to the shake-out run, meet-ups, etc. If you are in the area, make sure to stop by, take some selfies, and have a GREAT time!

Okay, okay, enough about this weekend (if you can't tell, I'm SUPER STOKED!), it's time for the main event...

Today's Triumph: Healthy Choices

Normally having to go grocery shopping AFTER work does not tend to lead to the best decisions on my part (Am I the only one?! I swear, going to the grocery store with an empty stomach leads me to buy #AllTheJunk.), but today was different!


I walked out of there with tons of fresh fruits and veggies. Also, look at what I had for the car ride home:

I know, I know, dried fruit is NOT the same as fresh fruit, but it is delicious and convenient so I went for it. One step at a time, right?!

Now that does NOT mean I didn't buy that bag of chips (#KeepingItReal), because I did... But it does mean that I didn't bust into them on the ride home! I mean, the point of this series is to celebrate the victories no matter how small (or insignificant) they may seem! Don't worry, I'll just consider the chips as carb loading... for whatever life throws at me when I get the urge to splurge.

Baby steps...

By the way, I don't know if you follow Linzie's blog on the regular (if not, get with the program peeps ;)), but he is putting me to shame with his healthy choices! He's got this #StrongerSharpie thing going on and is definitely putting in the work. He posted a delicious looking recipe on yesterday's blog, so make sure to check it out so you can ROCK the BELL(s)!

What are you triumphing in lately?! 


Here are all the RULES you need to know to participate in the Thursday Triumph LinkUp!
     1. Linzie, Smitha and I will start the LinkUp Post every Wednesday night by 11:59 EST. It will be hosted here, on Sharp Endurance and on Running With SD Mom. You can link up your posts any day of the week but the most common day to do so is Thursday. The post can be about any TRIUMPH in your life! Each linkup will be open for one week only.
     2. Entries that are not associated with a POST or just linked to your homepage will be deleted.
     3. Link back to 
Running With SD MomSharp Endurance & Carlee McDot so others can add their link and find others too! You can use the above graphic if you'd like!
     4. MOST IMPORTANT: You MUST visit the person's blog who linked up directly before you and leave them a motivating comment and share their POST. This is the most important part of the linkup. We want lots of links and we want to help each other out. This is MANDATORY!
     5. Void where prohibited.

Looking forward to seeing the Thursday Triumph group photo!

I did some healthy shopping yesterday - lots of veggies to take home. But I ALSO bought some chips. They are my weakness. And tonight we ARE having wine. So...that's the way it goes!

Keep it up!!
