    I don't know if I love running, but I ADORE how I feel after an intense run. My chest and lungs feel open, my entire body is relaxed, and I feel completely rejuvenated.

    Side note: Those artichoke-spinach chicken breasts are really, really good. And really healthy too! Will definitely make again. Though next time I need to figure out a better way to use the leftover artichokes.
    Sounds like we're in about the same place with running then. I definitely don't hate it anymore, but I'm still not totally sold. Especially my lungs.

    So glad you loved the chicken! I froze some of the leftovers while I was at my parents house and flew them home with me. They are currently back in the freezer, will probably pull them out next week. I might add some kalamata olives to the filling next time.

    1) This looks really good:

    Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pie - Pinch of Yum

    Filing it away for later!

    2) I'm thinking of baking some bread this weekend... something nutty-crunchy and whole grain. (There was this AMAZING whole grain bread from a local bakery in my hometown that I miss terribly, and I need a replacement ASAP.) I already have flaxseeds and wheat flour, and I think I could steal a packet or two of yeast from my roommate. But besides that I dunno what I'd need.

    3)

    Hm. Do you have lung issues? Am I imagining that?

    I'm VERY close to a point where I can trust myself to breathe correctly without focusing on it but yeah, I'm still working towards increasing my capacity for intense aerobic exercise. Keeping my heart rate up for longer.

    Mmm. Olives and feta for the win.

    Yes, I have some in the freezer as well though it turns out I had to use all the spinach I had in the fridge AND freezer to make them, so I have no side salad. Might have to make a supplementary grocery trip at some point late this week.

    Ooh, I'll browse those. I'll probably be cooking twice this weekend. Once for normal dinner, once for Easter foods.

    Yeah, I have exercise induced asthma. When I was little it was just normal asthma and I had to use inhalers all the time. I don't get the normal burning sensation in my lungs, they get really tight and push the air out too soon. I'd assume that means I'm not getting enough oxygen to my muscles either.

    Just mapped it out and my new apartment is 10 minutes from Trader Joe's, 5 minutes from H-Mart, and 15 minutes from Costco. To say I am excited about this is a massive understatement.

    As of right now it takes me 30-45 minutes to get all of those places. I am SO excited for grocery shopping.

    Hi.

    First time I've entered this thread and haven't had the time to read through it, but to jump straight to it:

    Are you guys doing meal planning? It would be fun to plan meals together for such a project. It's great for controlling what you eat in order to ensure what you're consuming is consistent and fits into your exercise/health plan.
    I'll feel like a doofus if you two already do this, but I hope you do! : D

    @Codex

    Showbread and I are actually doing a thing where we make the same dish in bulk once a week and compare notes. Once it was burrito bowls (great), once a salad (pretty good but needed modifications, and I didn't love the dressing), and once it was stuffed chicken breasts (EXCELLENT). We don't have a plan for next week though.

    Outside of that, I hyper-plan and hyper-budget my meals. Probably to a fault.

    That is really good to hear. I have been getting into meal planning my self, and just think it is really wonderful.
    What sources are you using to plan and prep? recipes? etc

    My diet:
    Morning: Too much cereal
    Afternoon: Too much cereal
    Evening: Whatever my parents cook. usually meat, noodles, vegetables, etc.
    Night: Too much cereal
    In between: Too much cereal, chips, chocolate stuff, cookies, pudding, nutella sandwiches
    Occasionally: Pizza, "Döner", Sushi, normal amout of cereal.

    Yeah... not exactly healthy... What do you think?
