Went to the gym for the first time in who knows how long:). I definitely won’t be renewing my pass when it expires in February because I don’t go enough to make it worth it but I’ll probably use it a few more times before then. Andrew was at work so it was nice to get in 7 miles after the kids went to school while Skye played at the gym’s kid’s club.
It’s been a long time since I haven’t had a lot of structure with my running so it’s feeling good to just run whatever I want each day.
Brooke and Knox had their Christmas recitals at school!
Last night Brooke and I did one of my favorite traditions… dinner and the Nutcracker.
I let Brooke choose any restaurant and she chose Olive Garden and I wasn’t mad about it at all :)
Of course there was no way we could forget a little Nutcracker!
Knox, Andrew and Skye decided to do a stay at home date with Pizza and sent me some selfies before the play:
And a random flashback to one year ago today:)
I have a few Friday Favorites to share today!
*The Run Fast. Eat Slow. A Runner’s Meal Planner! I’ve loved Shalane’s cookbooks so much that buying this planner wasn’t even a question and I’m so happy that I did! It has some recipes in there, tips from Shalane and it makes it easy to plan out your meals each week while tracking your running with space to write out your goals. I also love her idea of being able to look back on weeks/months of when our running is going really well (PRs, solid training etc) to see what we were eating to help us get to those awesome runs.
*I may have shared this before but it deserves a second mention. This Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan dip made with Greek Yogurt from Costco is unreal. Everyone at our house can’t get enough of it.
*Random one of the day but this is my absolute favorite bronzer ever. It’s been around forever, a little bit goes a long way and I just love it.
*If you are annoyed with wrapping paper storage like I was, this $4 gift wrap organizer is PERFECT.
*The second light comes into my room it wakes me up so I love a good eye mask. This one had almost 4,000 5 star reviews on it so I went with it and totally agree with giving it 5 stars. It is so much softer than my previous eye makes and the contoured cup makes it much more comfortable. Not an ounce of light gets in with these:)
*I’m Honestly Fed Up With All The Bad News, So I Illustrated 50 Of The Best Ones From 2019! I came across this article the other day and it put me in the best mood. It’s easy to focus on everything going wrong and this shows how many amazing things are going right!
What are your weekend plans?
To go along with the above article about being fed up with bad news… share any good news with us that you have!
Have a gym pass?! Where to?
