Well, I definitely have not been running! I do not know what we were sick with but I guess it is a blessing in disguise because I had zero temptations to start running this week because each time I stood up I felt like I was going to pass out for about 48 hours there. But outside of that, here are a few things that have been happening:
Who do you think got dressed first? I did and then Andrew got dressed and he said he didn’t do it on purpose…. We are really thinking alike these days.
Found a screenshot of this on Andrew’s phone the other day… I caught him!
Brooke and I got in a few minutes of yoga together the other morning.
I really like the CIM shirts this year and I’ll be using this one often!
Megan D knows my love for Sour Patch Watermelon and she gave these to me after my race because in her opinion, they are much better. And once again her opinion about food is 1000% correct. Not sure I can go back to the Sour Patch variety after these.
Finishing up raking before we have another snow storm this weekend!
This is random but I found it hard to find the exact gain and loss for CIM online anywhere leading up to the race so I thought I would share what my watch said that I did:
I loved the rolling hills for the first 16 miles and kept thinking about how much fun it would have been to be feeling normal and take the ups conservative and then bomb down all of those downhills like we’ve been practicing this year! Should we all plan a year to meet there together?
I have a few Friday favorites to share today!
*This episode from Rich Roll with Scott Fauble was AMAZING. I hope you get a chance to listen to it… Scott had so many awesome mental tips, stories and a great sense of humor. I am rooting for him and Jared Ward for the men at the Olympic Trials big time.
*Brooke, my niece and I watched Noelle on Disney+ and WE LOVED IT. If you need a fun Christmas movie to watch with this age group, we all highly recommend this one. PS Where have I been? I just found out about the Lizzie McGuire reboot coming out soon? The Lizzie McGuire show was one of my favorite shows growing up. I can’t wait to watch this with Brooke (whenever she is old enough for it to be age appropriate:).
*This sweater from Gap is only $20! It is super soft, comes in a lot of different colors and I bought a medium! I want to live in it. My other current favorite sweater right now is 40% off (it was sold out last week but I was wearing it for Skye’s bday party:)!
When you are holding your number upside down haha…
*I went to Target looking for a book filled with drama or a mystery and then this book instantly caught my eye. I am REALLY trying to rush less, plan less, keep things simple because while I want to get faster with running, I definitely feel like I need to slow down the rest of life. This book is amazing and it includes so many great real life ideas on how to simplify and avoid burnout. Less screens, more rest, less rush and more connection!
*Andrew gave me an early Christmas present because he couldn’t wait any longer. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this to you but I really love hot chocolate;). This milk frother heats it right up and gives you at least an inch of delicious froth. I pour the milk and froth into a mug with my hot chocolate powder in and stir. It’s the gift that keeps on giving daily for me:)
*The Melting Snowman hahah. Our kids love it. They build a snowman and then it melts about 30 minutes later and then they build it again.
*I just started this podcast and I’m hooked already.
What are your weekend plans? Anything fun coming up?
