This was the last week of 5K training and I will run the Omaha Marathon 5K race on Sunday, September 21.


I feel really prepared for this race and know that I will not have a problem running the entire 5K. The weekly one hour runs proved to me that I can run the distance and persevere the entire 3.1 mile run.

I have lost over 10 pounds in the last eight weeks of training which has helped me run faster and feel better. My goal is to run the 5K in under 30 minutes. However, I will be happy just to finish the entire race. The weather will be perfect for the race on Sunday and I am excited for the big event. Stay tuned for my 5K race results (posted on Facebook day of the race) and my final thoughts on training for a 5K.

Day 1: OFF
Day 2: Light strength training of choice
Day 3: 30 minute easy jog
Day 4: OFF
Day 5: 30 minute easy jog
Day 6: OFF
Day 7: 5K

Are you running in one of the Omaha Marathon Events on Sunday or will you in the crowd cheering for someone? Leave a comment.


Okay, so it got warm again. Some good football weather though! I’ll hold off on my soup recipes for just a little longer.  Beyond soup, here are my menu suggestions based upon what’s on sale this week.

Main Dishes 

  • Pulled Pork – These sandwiches are regulars on my menu.  It’s just so easy and it’s great for people to ‘customize’ their own sandwiches – some can use spicy BBQ sauce on top.  Some can use sweet BBQ sauce.  Some can use buffalo sauce.  It’s even good plain!
  • Crispy Onion Chicken – Got some fried onions?  Got some chicken?  You already have 2 out of the 3 ingredients needed for these chicken breasts.
  • Sausage Lasagna Rolls – Another one of my favorites.  It makes wonderful leftovers too.
  • Beef Enchiladas – Tortillas and beans are on sale, this would be a good week to make these.
  • Chicken Tetrazzini – I haven’t tried this one, but it has chicken. It has spaghetti. It has freezer instructions.  Sounds like something that I could really get behind.  Reminds me of this Chicken Spaghetti, but a little easier.

    This isn’t a main side, but most of the ingredients for Cheesy Hashbrowns are on sale – this is one of my favorites!  I can eat this every single day!

    My husband does not like tuna.  Just doesn’t care for it.  I’m not a big tuna eater, but I have great memories from childhood of when my mom would make tuna noodle casserole.  I really liked it – even as a kid!  So, I made some last week, just for me and the kids.  They loved it too – the little one (11 months old) made a mess when eating it, but he makes a mess all the time anyway!

    Here’s the version that I make.  It’s different than most recipes I’ve found in that it doesn’t include cheese.  If you’re a cheese person, add in a cup of cheese.  I also don’t like an official “crust” on it made with breadcrumbs.  Maybe that’s just because my mom never did it that way?  Anyway…this makes a 9×9 pan, which was perfect for my needs, but if your family is larger than mine, it easily doubles for a 9×13 pan.  I know that tuna noodle doesn’t make for a pretty picture, but it does make for a comfort meal!


    Tuna Noodle Casserole

    8 ounces of egg noodles
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1/2 cup milk
    1 can tuna, drained
    1/2 cup peas (either cooked & drained or from a can – about 1/3 – 1/2 can)
    1 cup cheese (optional)


    1. Boil & drain egg noodles.

    2. In a 8×8 or 9×9 casserole dish, mix everything together.

    3. Bake 30 minutes on 350.

    4. Serve!

    I like to eat it with crushed potato chips on top, but that probably isn’t all that healthy, is it?  Oh well.

    Jayme is a wife to 1 and, so far, a mother to two little boys. She coupons, but isn’t super extreme about it. She price matches and loves it! While she likes to cook, she’s in the stage of life where simple is usually better! She never knows how many hands she’ll have free at dinner time! You can find her at No Regrets Living.

    The 5K is coming soon and I am ready!


    I am so excited, I have lost 10 pounds in the last eight weeks of this training and diet! I’ll admit I was skeptical when my trainer recommended a low carb, no processed sugar diet, but it has done wonders for me. I’ve always exercised and have counted calories over the years, but nothing has seemed to really shed the pounds like this diet change.

    When I first started this healthy lifestyle change, the diet was tough, but it got easier. Now, I feel so energetic and actually enjoy the new foods I’ve started eating. Many of my Mom Saves Money Facebook fans raved about the low carb diet and some lost 60+ pounds. Now, I am also a believer. My husband and I booked a 10-year anniversary trip to Mexico late this fall and I can’t wait to rock some cute dresses after all this hard work. (Thank you coupons and living frugal for allowing us to pay cash for the trip!)

    5k training week 8

    My trainer asked me to take it easy this week, since I was recovering from a pretty nasty one inch gash I got in my leg. It is healing well, but taking a few days off was just what I needed.

    Day 1: OFF
    Day 2: 15 minute run
    Day 3: 30 minute run
    Day 4: OFF
    Day 5: 45 minute run
    Day 6: OFF
    Day 7: Light strength training of choice
