Billy went to a car show this last weekend.
I asked him if he would trade me in for a Lamborgini
and he said, “only if they threw in a free Dr. Pepper.”
Minus 12 husband points.
He earned those point back plus 3 more by taking me to:
-Pick up my new running shoes (courtesy of Mom and Dad Jacobs…thanks!!) and Costco
We took my new Brooks to a shoemaker to have them to take out most of the heel. Now they are zero drop which means the heel and front of the shoe are even heights. By doing this it forces me to run striking my mid-food and hopefully this will help me be speedier.
I am shooting for a 180 cadence (180 steps per minute). My inner thigh is a little tight and they are thinking it is because I am over striding. Problem solved:)
The Costco goods: Yes I am rolling around giggling and hugging my latest deliciousness goodness.
We left Costco spending $37.
Not bad for coming home to an empty fridge and hopefully this will hold us over for a little longer than a week (thanks Mom in advance for inviting us to eat many delicious home cooked meals at your house this week…..Lasagna has been sounding mighty delicious lately. Oh, and don’t forget the garlic bread and Billy mentioned something about funfetti cake sounding good:)
My din din doesn’t look crazy appetizing but it included some nutritional powerhouses… spinach, tuna, cheese, broccoli, potato skins. The potato was literally 2 lbs.
Finished off from my secret stash. I keep it in my underwear drawer because I like my underthings to smell like chocolate.
Christmas present from a student. Why do people find my candy obsession so funny?
HOW DO YOU SAVE MONEY ON GROCERIES? Do you have a grocery budget?
-I need advice……we spend way too much mula!!! I don’t want to buy less, share your ideas and strategies:)
Do you finish the night off with chocolate?
-Yes, it is good for my mental health and my marriage:)
Any special tricks to help with your speed?
-Besides really working on my foot strike I am also trying some exercises of holding my breath for a short amount of time as I run to help increase my oxygen usage efficiency (learned this from 50 50 by Dean Karnazes aka my idol).
