8 miles at an 8:43 average pace early this morning. Isn’t it crazy how recovery runs after a hard workout make your body feel so much better? During the run my legs felt like cement but I am less sore now than I was before I went out to run. The benefits of easy running are sooooo worth it.
And I was worried about Brooke not enjoying coming to the orthodontist with me…
Ballon in one hand, chocolate chip cookie in the other hand.
I had to go in to get my retainer adjusted and Brookers loved it there.
At each chair they had an itouch with a bunch of games, they had a big fish tank, cookies, balloons and a movie room… pretty much any child’s dream. Too bad I will only have to go one more time because Brooke had a blast.
A few readers have asked about my eyelashes. They are fake. This was one of those things that I started doing when I moved back to Utah. Let’s be honest, my self-esteem needed some help with everything that happened and of course fake eyelashes solve any confidence issues (I’m 1/2 way kidding because they really do make me feel better;) But really, I love having them because I go without makeup a lot (and I never wear mascara) when I have them and I just love the look of them. I am addicted and will probably never stop.
Meet my therapist/eyelash girl. She is the best. If you are in Utah and looking for the best, let me know and I will give you her info.
She attaches each fake lash to the base of my natural lash and they fall off when your lash naturally falls off. I go about once a month and it is $55, totally worth it for me.
Plus I just get to lay on this comfy thing and talk for an hour straight with her. I always go during Brooke’s afternoon nap so it works out great.
The final product. Who get’s out of their running clothes these days? I sure don’t.
Came home and had an excellent salad (used TJ’s Spiny Peanut dressing). Baked sweet potatoes are one of the best foods out there.
Anyone ever had eyelash extensions? How do/did you like them?
What fruits/veggies do you take the skins off before eating? Anyone eat things like the orange peel etc?
Are you good at taking your easy runs easy? Is it hard for you to slow down in order to let your body recover?
