First, and most importantly…. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister. This is a picture from a few years ago when we took a trip to San Francisco with my mom and we had the best time together. I love her so much and feel free to wish her happy birthday today:)
Non-silentish part: Direct quote of a text from my mom: “It is minus 5 out. Please do not go running outside because it can freeze and scar your lungs.” I listened and jumped on my treadmill. I did my long run for the week (I finished just before the kids woke up… score:) Friday instead of Saturday because of stuff going on this morning. Ten miles @ 8:34 average and then I finished up for 7 minutes doing something new. Walked on my treadmill at a 40% incline to continue to train for my running. I’m trying something new and finishing up any long runs that I do on my treadmill with an incline walk to really tire out my legs to build strength for race day! Nothing like really tiring them out after they are already tired from a long run. All of those little or big deposits we make into our running bank account matter! My NordicTrack X11i Incline Trainer goes from -6% to 40% incline and I am excited to see how much this helps me to build strength in my legs to climb those hills at the end of February with my next half marathon!!! I was provided product and compensation for my honest and unbiased opinion!
Luckily my head doesn’t hit the ceiling haha! PS this picture is from another day of walking on an incline… I was sweating like crazy yesterday because our heater was cranked up.
Jumped off and then it was breakfast time.
Knox left to go to his mom’s. We went to do errands (including waxing my eyebrows… hence the redness).
Leftovers for lunch are my favorite… fast and delicious.
While he studies.
Went to an early dinner for our meal out for the week.
Learning chopsticks early.
Everything I could hope for on one plate.
Took Christmas down:(
When it is this cold here it’s fine to get in your pjs and hang out in bed at 6:something.
Andrew had school stuff so we hung out.
Goodnight hugs. Brooke was beyond tired yesterday. I’m just showing you the highlights from the day… let’s just say yesterday was a rough day in mommyhood but the good parts make it all okay.
Yep, I told myself I wasn’t going to watch The Bachelor this season and then I found myself watching it.
Loved this from runnersbe… what are you?
Lots of running shoes in your closet or one at a time?
Watching the Bachelor this season… yay or nay?
Do you eat leftovers or are you not a leftovers person?
Two things you have going on today!!
