As soon as I got home from my run Skye ran to me with her swimsuit asking if we could get in the hot tub. Beck was napping during my run and he was still asleep so we jumped into the hot tub fast!
This girl is all about self-care. She just floats around on her back without a care in the world. She is the hot tubs #1 fan and she would stay in there for hours if we let her.
Before the hot tub—> 8 miles @ 7:58 average. My legs started out feeling like they couldn’t move after the workout the day before but then with each mile they felt better and better.
After leftovers for lunch Andrew went for a run. Before he left he said that just putting on his running shoes was requiring too much energy and he had NO desire to start. He told himself that he was just going to go for one mile and ended up coming home after four miles.
Just remember… WE ALL feel this way often. Rarely am I just thrilled to start a run, I just know that if I do go then I will feel a lot better for the rest of the day. You are normal if it is hard to start even if you’ve been doing this for a while.
For dinner we made these copycat chow mien noodles from Panda Express and then had some Costco orange chicken along with it.
And I realllllly needed some cookies last night so my favorite monster cookies happened again. The pb and oatmeal in these just take them to the next level. These cookies are definitely not my sister’s favorite… she wants just one or two chocolate chips per cookie and the more chocolate the better in my opinion.
I have a few Friday Favorites to share today!
*We have been using these 50 Family Dinner Conversation Starters with our kids and it has been really fun to hear their answers to things.
*I LOVE sparkling water lately and this kind is absolutely my favorite.
*I forgot who told me about this podcast but this story is NUTS and it keeps my brain very busy on solo runs!
*I needed a few spring items (my old spring items don’t fit and I choose comfort > trying to fit into things that don’t fit or trying to fit into items that don’t fit:) and I ended up on Gap’s website. I had forgotten how much I love Gap until the items arrived. 99% of the time they are having awesome sales, everything is so soft and comfortable and long enough (the short top trend isn’t for me and they offer the Tall option in almost everything).
I LOVE love these t-shirts ($11).
This Vintage Soft Henley Sweatshirt is my other favorite item that I bought!
*I saw this meal on triedandtruemoms and it is such an easy meal for those busy nights! Cook the pasta (this is our FAVORITE pasta that is from Costco) and mix in the marinated fresh mozzarella cheese (TJ’s) and the chicken (TJ’s) once the pasta has been drained and boom… delicious. Add some roasted Brussel Sprouts on the side and you are all set to go.
