Approximately 2.25 years ago I woke up to little brown dots all over my counter. Immediately knew I was being invaded by a small creature! I called my landlord to have him *hopefully* exterminate my unwanted house guest. Later that day he set up some traps. Unfortunately it took a few days and some peanut butter to catch him. Upon capturing the critter I called my landlord intentionally sounding disheveled about my critter situation. In my sweetest voice possible I asked if I could get a cat to avoid future critters. I pleaded that I was responsible and promised I would pay extra rental fee if I could have a companion. Of course he said yes.
I could hardly wait to start looking for my new furry friend. I went to the local animal shelter the very next day. The shelter was crowded and they were only allowing a few people at a time to look at kittens. I held a few that were still available and went back and forth between them. As I stood there pondering the volunteer came in and announced that this gray kitten was now available. Apparently the gray kitten was put aside for a boy but he changed his mind and now wanted an orange kitten. I picked her up and she purred and was climbing all over me, I knew she was mine. Thank you little boy for having a color preference (:
My First Day Home!
Ever since day one Chloe has been a playful kitty. She loves napping, but doesn’t go a day without needing some play time. She is the perfect combination of playful but also independent.
Although she has had her issues, I couldn’t ask for a better kitty. She adds so much joy (and shenanigans) to the Fast Paced Kitchen Household, I couldn’t imagine life without her. Pets are really wonderful, they add so much to a persons life. They are not only a companion but a member of the family. I really encourage anyone who is thinking of getting a pet to check out your local shelter- you may just find your next best friend!
My name is Jodi and welcome to my blog (:
I decided to start this blog to share my journey to run faster, get stronger and the delicious recipes that fuel me! It will also include the shenanigans of my daily life.
My goal is for this blog to be 100% real. No BS. I will not convey thats it’s possible to grow a six pack overnight or that protein infused pancakes with chemical syrup tastes as good as IHOP. I’m not here to show my barely there abs or how great my butt looks while doing squats. I would rather share how damn hard I am working to just get seconds faster. You will see the sweat and shenanigans that go into trying to accomplish such minimalistic goals that somehow mean the world to me.
My blog will also include info on health and wellness topics. No, I will not try to sell you the latest craze of ground up seaweed steeped in coconut milk mixed into oatmeal. This blog will only contain facts, not misleading holistic jargon. Eventually I will share my never-ending gut issues and what has worked for me and what hasn’t.
Of course this blog will feature some delicious recipes that won’t take hours- ain’t no body got time for that! REAL FOOD, that actually tastes good. Not everyone loves kale, let’s be real- you don’t NEED to eat kale to be healthy.
Forewarning: this blog will also feature my fur baby Princess Chloe. She rules the Fast Paced Kitchen household so it’s only fair that she gets her 15 minutes of fame…every week
I hope you enjoy the shenanigans of the fast lane (:
