This felt VERY different. I cannot even remember the last time I was on a treadmill. This might have even been my first treadmill run of this pregnancy!
Like everyone on the planet this year, I’m trying to figure out the right schedule for us right now. Yesterday I tried something new and it actually worked really well. Brooke wakes up early these days so I decided that we would start her school (Tuesday’s she is home) first thing while Skye was still asleep. Doing the majority of her schooling while Skye was asleep made it a million times easier for everyone involved. Based on Andrew’s work schedule each week we will just be playing around with different schedules on the days the kids do school at home.
A few hours later and we went over to my sister’s home gym to get in a run. My sister has a big toy room right next to her gym which made it so easy to get in some miles. My sister was on the elliptical while I was on the treadmill and Skye lifted some weights while we were there too;)
Remember years ago when almost every blog post that I posted included a treadmill picture? I was reminded yesterday that I actually really do like the treadmill. I love a run outside the absolute most but I’ve always had a close bond with the treadmill too (my treadmill running tips are here).
Six miles and weirdly my legs were sore afterwards which means I must run differently on a treadmill vs. outside.
I then took the girls to the library and I was very excited about one of the books that Brooke wanted to bring home… a cookbook!
PS we have decided to say goodbye to the binky once the new baby comes and Skye moves into Brooke’s room. It will be part of her turning into a big girl and she will give the binkys to the new baby. For now she calls them her ‘binky mask’ to be like us and wear a mask anytime we go somewhere ha.
PS they try to convince me every night that they need to share a room now;) I’m just holding onto the last few months of Skye being in a crib!
The bakery always happens either before or after we go to the library.
We got home and made some lunch. This might be something that everyone does but when I am mixing up my 3-4 eggs for an omelet, I add a 1 tbsp of pancake mix (like bisquick) to the eggs. The pancake mix helps the eggs to fluff up a bit and stick together when I am folding it together.
Plate sized omelets are my favorite kind of omelets.
Brooke made me a smoothie from her cookbook including the straw and umbrella for me to drink in my bed.
This is definitely my ideal time to eat dinner #1…
Nesting has kicked in and the pantry reaped the benefits. I wish that I had a before picture because it was insane in there and it took me so long to find anything…
And a random flashback memory… A year ago today I was running next to the ocean in 1000% humidity. I miss the ocean but I don’t miss running in humidity (this picture was taken 2.2 miles into my run… I don’t know how you humidity runners do it)!
How are you switching up your normal routines to make new schedules work?
When was your last treadmill run? How do you feel about the treadmill these days?
Last organizing project that you did?
I would love to hear any random cooking tips that you use (ie my pancake mix tip for omelettes), these things are so fun for me to find!
