I switched out the running shoes for a yoga mat yesterday. After those two long runs this week, my body felt crunched all together and I wanted to get it all stretched out and ready to go again.
I went to a little studio that I haven’t been to for awhile. The class was crazy challenging for me so I had to switch my brain from ‘oh my goodness this is so hard’ to ‘it’s fun finding new muscles that I didn’t know I had and making them exhausted and want to explode;)”. I think with the running I am doing now, a lot of it is at the exact same pace and the same ups and downs so I’m using pretty much the same muscles every day and that is why different fitness classes always kill me off, ha.
I bought a punch card for more classes to keep me going back for more. I felt taller and my brain more relaxed afterwards too.
We got slammed with snow (a day too late… but I was actually selfishly kind of happy about that since I was able to get both long runs in really nice weather).
We took Christmas down! Our window seat opens up to a big storage area so that made it really easy to just put it all in there! We can fit Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving down there.
I was hungry the days that I did the long runs but then yesterday hit… Nothing could fill my hunger, I was snacking all day long. I was very grateful for these Kneader’s rolls that my mom gave to me. They were very needed yesterday.
Knox came back and he and Andrew went sledding!
Long hair problems.
We took Skye in the backyard for a minute so she could have her first sledding experience. She wasn’t so sure about it.
A hot chocolate date.
My backyard makes me like winter now.
A little movie watching…
And Knox has really wanted to learn how to play Yahtzee so we did our best.
After the kids went to bed we had two very important visitors. I wanted to treat them right by having Utah’s best cookies available for them to try (CRUMBL… and that hot chocolate cookie was something else).
BANGS FRIEND AND BANGS FRIEND HUSBAND.
And a little reminder because I know dieting is a big deal this time of year… AVOID THIS CYCLE!!! YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH and the things you eat cannot change that.
Do you like yoga? How often do you go?
Last time you tried something fitness wise that is kind of outside of your comfort zone? (ie me going to a yoga studio where everyone is professional and I can’t touch my toes;)
Take Christmas decorations down right away or let them stay for a little while?
-1st thing when I wake up on the 26th ha:)
Are you usually hungriest the day of a long run or the day after a long run?
