It was 7 degrees.
Yeah, no thank you.
Our current treadmill set up is pretty great so I can’t complain. I watched some T-Swift on Netflix and put the treadmill to a 2% incline and ran for 7 miles (8:27 average). There was a lot of sweat and some blood from hitting my Hydroflask against my lip really hard on accident but luckily there were no tears (but I did get a little misty eyed when Taylor Swift was playing some of her older songs that got me through my college years;).
Brooke woke up and joined me for the last two miles.
And then she joined in with Andrew to do some pushups.
When you are just trying to get your next set of push-ups in and nobody is supportive of that idea…
She did try to feed me a Cheerio she found on the ground while I was stretching.
We ran a few errands together (Brooke’s coat is tied around her waist because she is transforming into Andrew and says her coat makes her too hot?!?).
Yesterday was Mer’s actual birthday (90!!) so we went over and spent some time with her at her house!
And then went to dinner with my parents.
My mom started me young on breakfast for dinner and I continue to make her proud:
And a few random things before I let you go today!
*The group picture from Mer’s 90th birthday party. Many of these cousins of mine I haven’t seen in 10-15 YEARS!?! We all decided that can never happen again. It was such a fun party and to see Mer cry tears of joy when she realized what was happening was just the absolute best.
*Have I mentioned to you yet that it is just unreasonably cold here right now?
*We have earned this recovery week and we are taking full advantage of it. Gotta get ready for hard weeks coming up…
*Two of my college best friends came over the other night. We stayed up late talking and eating chocolate cake at the table… just like we did 10 years ago.
*Brooke has mastered the art of surprise sneak attacks on Andrew and she is very proud of herself for it.
*Andrew’s Hydration Pack arrived so he is getting used to it by wearing it around the house while carb loading. We really are mastering this ultra training over here;)
*My neighbor works for a jewelry company for kids and she asked if Brooke could be in a few pictures for them. I thought this one turned out so cute.
*Knox comes home today and we will all be together for 5 days. Andrew used to carry these two around like this often… and now it is a little bit harder.
*My cute cousin made this plant hanger for us for Christmas. She just followed this tutorial and got the rope and rings from Hobby Lobby! I want to learn how to be crafty!
*Knox told me the other day that he doesn’t like the smell of bread. I didn’t know that it was possible to not love that smell. I’m still speechless.
Do you enjoy doing crafts? What kinds?
What temperature is just too cold for you to go outside to run?
-Single digits… that’s when I just can’t do it.
How often do you do push-ups? Knees or toes?
-I can only do a few on my toes but I’m joining Andrew in a push-up challenge thing that he signed up for so by March maybe I’ll be able to do 6;)
Making any health additions to your 2019?
-My goal is to just eat more vegetables and drink more water!
