And it all pays off in the end...

As you probably know, 
lately there has been a lot of talk about "being healthy" 
in our neck of the woods.

We've become addicted to Greek yogurt
(23 g of protein and 0 g of fat per 1 C. 'nuff said.)

and have been experimenting with all kinds of "healthy" recipes... 

 Tilapia Piccata

(with tofu)

(Served with Cotija cheese we bought at the Mexican market.

(So easy. SO worth it.)

(I'm telling you... you'd never even know it was tofu!)

(Plus cheese on a stick. Mmmm.)
(And my first attempt at corn dogs, 
which is why they are sort of lopsided.
Looks aside though, they tasted DELICIOUS!)

We've had a lot of fun making weird food concoctions 
by substituting healthy ingredients
(some tastier than others)
and spending many hours running together.

However, changing our lifestyle,
trying to get into better shape and training for the big race
has not been all fun and games...
With the boredom from the endless hours of running,
the achy knees,
the ornery outbursts as a result of exhaustion,
finding new "healthy" recipes
 and all the time spent preparing the meals,
everything has become a bit TEDIOUS!!

Today, it all paid off.
 Because now that Jake finally broke down 
and bought himself a new wardrobe,
 my husband is

And this is my blog, so I can brag if I want to
(you would brag, too, if it happened to you...)

So I just wanted to say that 
I am super proud of this guy. 
He sure has put in the work 
(SO. much. WORK!)
and he definitely deserves the payoff.

And here's the most PDA you're gonna get for a looong long time.
I love you, Jake. 
Good Jobby. :)
