Yesterday was our monthly post-church-meal (we call it munch and mingle—> clever, I know). We put together a pretty rockin’ salad bar… we may have been a little selfish with this one and we decided to make our personal favorite meal.
It was a hit and I am guessing close to 80 people had a salad. Just trying to spread our obsession of salad bars with everyone.
Brooke was pretty proud of her impressive artwork from church.
And then we went up to Sundance so that Brooke could chase the white butterflies. Sundance is our favorite because it is a little bit cooler up there and the scenery is outrageous.
We can also feed the fish which is always a guaranteed good time for Brooke.
We went over to my parents’ house for Sunday night dinner and I had this bbq chicken salad and roasted potatoes plate x 2.
Why just suck your thumb when you can eat all of your fingers?
This is where things went downhill. My 12 year old nephew beat me in an arm wrestle. It wasn’t even a close fight. I need to get back to bootcamp.
The house champion was my brother-in-law.
I brought dessert (of course). Just my usual freezer ice cream cake. Oreo/butter crust, layer of hot fudge, a layer of cookies ’n’ creme ice cream, cool-whip and sprinkles (in honor of Brooke).
Week #10 of marathon training!!! We are getting close….

Today is going to be a rough one. Pulling out the big guns (aka my favorite playlist and motivational quotes) to get this one going.
How was your running last week? Best run? Hardest run?
What was the best thing that you ate this weekend?
Have any fitness/health goals for this week? What?

-Lower body strength. I can barely do a push-up.
