Back to summarizing my weekly workouts (from last week):
Every day I have been doing my glute exercises and core work after my workouts.
Monday- 7 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill.
Tuesday- 8 miles with Jess on the roads @ 8:30ish average pace.
Wednesday- Stair climber and weights.
Thursday- 8 miles with Jess on the trails.
Friday- 15 minutes elliptical, 25 minutes stairs and 10 minutes rowing machine
Saturday- 10 miles @ 7:39 average pace
For some reason my brain just does not handle change very well and so I was stressing out last week. I think it is because living at my parents during my divorce was so nice and it just felt so safe to be home and so the idea of moving out just the two of us for the first time ever started to worry me last week.
Other things I was worried about—> that the move would be hard on Brooke, I would have loud neighbors, my parents would never be able to stop crying because they would miss us so much and that I would be lonely every night after Brooke goes to bed at 8… so far none of those things have been a problem (I am pretty sure my parents have actually been throwing parties every night this last weekend;).
Our new home feels so so incredibly right/good/perfect for us. I don’t know why I worry so much about stuff like this because it always works out. Now that the move is over I am sure I will find something else to worry about;)
Brooke runs around from room to room giggling, jumping on things and whenever we have people come over she makes sure to show them around the our place. I think she even knows that this is a fresh new start for us and that we have a pretty great life just the two of us together.
Scenes from our Sunday:
Brooke had been asking all day (and to everyone that she saw) for a cookie and so even though I still have 6 days left of the no treats thing I made some snicker doodles for my family.
I always use a family friend’s recipe for these and even my brother-in-law who normally doesn’t like snicker doodles loves these ones!
My dessert x 3. My favorite part of Auguest/September:
And then we ended the night by sitting around the table and coming up with names for my sister’s baby. I really think Janae Jr. has a nice ring to it.
