Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken Salad

I have been on the BBQ train for a while now. I'm just craving summer and keep making my favorite summer-time foods. This recipe is super easy if you plan ahead (and if you don't... just cook it on high)!

Here's what you need:
1-2 chicken breasts
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Salad greens and veggies

Here's what you do:
1. Place the chicken into the slow cooker.
2. Thoroughly cover the chicken in BBQ sauce.
3. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. I pulled the chicken apart around hour 3 so it could continue soaking up the saucy goodness.
4. Take your favorite salad greens and whatever veggies you desire and place the chicken on top! No other dressing needed with all the BBQ sauce!

February's Resolution

Month 2 of 12 months of resolutions has already been full of excitement. Yesterday I completed my 8th half marathon. I realized last week I have been running marathons for 5 years now... time is definitely flying. My goal for yesterday was to beat 1:40:00 in the half and I DID IT!!! I trained for week and ran the 13.1 miles in 1:38:59!! I even placed 4th in my age group of 576 people. I am still so excited and proud that I achieved my goal. This shows that if you really set your mind to something, you can achieve anything. I know I proved that to myself this weekend.

This year was the 5th anniversary of the Rock and Roll New Orleans Marathon. I have done either the half or full each year they have had this race. In honor of the 5th anniversary they posted a "wall of fame" for all those runners that had participated each year!

Ok so back to resolutions... After having a full 1:38:59 to think about what I wanted my resolution to be for this month, I decided it would be taking my dog, Denny, to the park at least twice a week. With such a busy schedule it's hard to get her out and running. I know she gets anxious (because she will pick up a toy and put it in my lap... usually when I'm in the middle of writing a paper) and this will help that!
Resolution Recap:
January: Spending less time on my cellphone 
February: Taking Denny to the dog park twice a week
