8 miles @ 8:30 average pace! Yesterday I had an easy run by myself and I didn’t listen to a podcast which was quite weird—> I haven’t done that in quite some time. When I got pregnant with Skye I started listening to podcasts during 99% of my runs and I’ve probably listened to hundreds along the way.
In the last 20 minutes of my run I had a stomach cramp… I rarely get those but when I do, I am not a happy camper. I tend to get them more when I’m really hot and I should have brought water with me yesterday. Do you cramp up often when you run?
When I got home Brooke just wanted to lay low because she was feeling off and I thought it was just because she was tired from all of her cousin time but got out a bowl just in case… I’m glad I got that bowl out about 30 minutes after this picture. She was so sick yesterday. I have not seen her feel so awful in a long time. Hopefully today is much better!
Knox left for a week to go on a trip with his mom but we got some soccer playing accomplished in the front before he left. A chocolate popsicle afterwards was necessary.
Cereal never lets you down when you have a sick kiddo (I don’t think Skye was feeling 100% either) and don’t have any desire to make anything for yourself for lunch:
PS The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting books is one of my favorite things to give to my other mom friends:)
Basically our day was filled with taking care of Brooke but once she took a nap, Skye and I went on a mini walk until I was drowning in sweat (Andrew was home with Brooke).
Just the dinner I love the very most—> Costco tortillas (the ones you cook yourself at home), peppers and onions cooked in olive oil, chicken that Andrew cooked on the grill, romaine, beans, corn, mango salsa and wholly guacamole.
Skye helped Andrew pay the bills and then once the girls went to bed, we watched The Bachelorette!
Time for a few Friday Favorites (affiliate links included)!
*This little girl says dada all day long… I have a feeling she will be saying Andrew’s middle name and phone number before she says mama judging by how much she talks about him;)
*A few of you asked to have my recipes all in one place! So you can find them HERE now (you can see the page at the top of the blog). I don’t post a lot of my own/my family’s recipes but the ones I do are pretty much the best (and we have made them a trillion times)! I’ll keep adding more and more!
*Picked up a new hydroflask because I lost mine in Seattle. These things are an investment in my health because I drink SO much more water when I have one. The 32 ounce one is officially my favorite size for these.
*I’m also drinking this Black Cherry Fresca. SO good.
*This article—> A Pro Runner’s Eating Disorder Struggle Isn’t Over— and That’s Why She’s Sharing Her Story Now. So real, so good. I was able to run with Hannah Fields two weeks ago and I just think she is the best of the best.
*This quote on beauty redefined from Pink. I absolutely loved this and love those lines.
*Skye and Brooke got some matching bows from @BusyBowsByLizzy! I don’t think you have noticed (I kid) but I kind of have an addiction when it comes to bows for Skye.
*I have had a lot of different brands of gummy bears in my 32 years of life. I tried these at my in-laws the other day and they are officially the best.
*IT’S THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!!! I spent way too long picking out what I will be buying this year. These are my favorites that I’ll be choosing from this year:
Do you ever get stomach cramps while running?
-I feel like I only do when it is really hot outside!
If you are married, who pays the bills in your household?
-Andrew. He is much more organized with all of that than I am.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
What has been one of your favorite things this week?
