Just a quick hello from us this Tuesday afternoon.
The usual morning cuddling:
Andrew and I hit up the treadmills at the gym so that we could run at the same time (indoors;). I got in 8 miles @ an 8:06 pace and watched a few shows that I downloaded on Netflix (isn’t that amazing that you can do that now… I’m very happy with that addition and so are the kids for our upcoming road trips).
We also got in 17 minutes of weights. That is an achievement for me. Six of those minutes were spent planking—> rotating between 1.5 minutes on my elbows in a normal plank and then 1.5 minutes of side planks (45 seconds on each side) X 2.
PS I’ve been attempting to braid my hair for my treadmill runs so that it doesn’t get so snarly. Mission accomplished.
Lunch was actual perfection. A turkey burger (we buy ours frozen at Costco) salad with avocado and sweet potato fries on the side. Yes, my skin has a nice orange tint due to the high volume of sweet potatoes that I eat each day. I can’t stop.
We just got a new bottle of my favorite dressing which was perfect for my salad.
My afternoon snack involved this goodness.
Brooke is very excited about how independent she is these days. She insists on getting herself dressed without my help now. She figured out zippers which she has been practicing all day.
She is also into styling people’s hair and she gave Andrew a fantastic new style today.
Anytime I am doing something on the ground she finds a way to climb up to my shoulders in .02 seconds.
The two of us were busy working on wrapping presents.
And Andrew fixed his car… 30 degrees is perfect weather for that;)
Beretta is off to spend a few days with Andrew’s brother while we are out of town. We miss her already.
That’s all I have for you today! Thank you for your comments on this morning’s post and Andrew is working on a post about running with hypertension which will go up next week! I’ve got a gift guide for you tomorrow and my sister will share her hair tips on Thursday! ENJOY!!!
