I have a new baby update HERE! 35 weeks and talking about a few of the lessons I’ve learned this pregnancy.
Andrew had us laughing pretty hard before this picture but now I can’t remember what it was about.
5.1 miles @ 9:20 average pace with plenty of walking breaks thrown in. Last week’s running felt smooth and easier and yesterday’s run felt like the exact opposite. Just going to take it a mile at a time right now. When I was this far along with Brooke’s pregnancy I was still running 10 miles somedays and that seems completely crazy to me because there is no way I could do that right now.
I went into the treadmill room to grab something and realized our treadmill has turned into a storage area… I have a feeling I’m going to be on this treadmill a lot more often once the new baby gets here (and I’m recovered). Time to organize.
The big kids were at school and Skye went over to my sister’s house so that we could go to my doctor’s appointment. Skye loves it over there and for some reason her jeans make her look 5 years older than she is.
I wonder how many more appointments we will have before the baby gets here…
We came home to the fanciest of lunches… tuna fish for the win.
Later on Andrew wanted to get in a run so we decided to join him at a park. This was when he was just starting and when Beretta is overly excited she bites on the leash.
Brooke has less than 5 miles until she completes her Marathon in a Month!
She even did some strength training when she was all done with her run;)
I’ve been thinking about mashed potatoes way too much the last few days so we got out the instant pot and about 30 minutes later I was living my dream.
Random running tangent for the day:
*Jared Ward always has the best ideas. I saw that for the London Marathon he wrote notes on his insoles and I want to do the same in the future. I love writing my goals/things I want to remember on my wrist near my garmin so that I see them each time I look at my watch but I will be doing this too now.
I linked all of my favorite fall foods HERE. Joy gave me the idea to make a list of all of my favorite soup recipes! I LOVE soup with a passion so here are my top 10 and I’d love to hear any of yours… I’ll try them all!
*Taco Soup (my mom’s recipe is my favorite)
*Chicken Cream Cheese Chili!! We just add an extra can or two of tomato soup to it)
*Potato and Onion Chowder from Sarah Makes It
*Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder. It is not possible for me to ever get sick of this recipe.
*Hearty Minestrone with Spicy Sausage and Beans from the Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook.
*Mindy’s Tomato Soup Recipe. Absolute perfection with a grilled cheese sandwich.
*Chicken Noodle Soup + Mashed Potatoes (both recipes in this post)… please try combining them, it’s amazing. PS let’s see how many times I can talk about mashed potatoes in one week;)
*Lasagna is my favorite food so clearly this lasagna soup is one of my favorites!
*The copycat recipe in this post of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana soup. I might have to make this tonight because it is so good.
*This Chicken Tortilla Soup is something we make all winter long. It is super simple and the kids love it too!
Just another reminder of my new pregnancy update!
Who has a treadmill at home? How often do you use it and which one do you have?
Give me your favorite soups and their links or what cookbooks they are in?!
Who runs with their dog? How long does your pup last?
Are you getting in strength training these days? Do you make it up on your own or follow some sort of program/schedule? I’d love to hear because I’m trying to figure out what I will do in a few months!
