running strong and poaching eggs?

I got it back today.  You're probably wondering what it is that I lost?

It was my running MOJO!
But I think I found it... 

For some reason, I hadn't been really feeling my runs.  It was like I was going through the motions because I need and want to exercise, but I'd never reach that point where I used to love to go...

The point where the run isn't exercise, it's like a release of every tension, stress, emotion, pain...all of it goes out of your mind and onto the ground!  Sounds cheesy, but it happened today and now I'm unstoppable!  Again, thanks to Run with Jess for creating this challenge, because it has helped me connect with my runs again.  

Running without TRULY loving the run, makes it tough.  That goes for all forms of exercise.  

I always stress the importance of finding an exercise that you love, because if the passion isn't there, it'll feel like work.  Like something you want to put off, make excuses for and so on.  If you LOVE to do it, then you'll make time for it no matter what and believe it or not, you'll actually enjoy doing it!  Trust me, I never believed it until I felt it.  

And just in case I may lose that feeling again, I've got these boys pushing me every step of the way...they are my little running buddies that keep me going!

Now, how about some poached eggs?
     Honestly, I had never had a poached egg until asked to review this poachpod product!  They are small and fit right into my utensil drawer, they're super cute and come in a variety of colors!  They are so easy to use...it's as simple as boiling water, cracking the egg into the pod and that's it!  
     I have seen several recipes using the poachpod!  One that I want to try is scramble an egg, spinach and a little cheese...use the same way and basically you have a mini-omelet!  

The poachpod® is a flexible silicone cooking tool for poaching eggs, baking and molding. The poachpod® allows you to float and poach an egg in boiling water like a lily pad on a pond. When the egg is ready, flip the nonstick pod inside out and gently push the perfectly domed shaped egg out. Place the pod in the dishwasher for easy clean up.

Some stuff you should know:
    • Heat-resistant to 675°F / 357°C
    • FDA food-safe silicone
    • Nonstick
    • Microwave and dishwasher safe
    • Flexible
    • Set of 2 (1 dark and 1 light green)
    • 3" diameter x 1.5" depth
  • Have you found an exercise that YOU love?
Do you enjoy poached eggs?  Have some great recipes for the poachpod, I'd love to hear them!

I received 2 poachpods for free in exchange for my honest review.  
All opinions are 100% mine and no other compensation was received.
