Yesterday was a bit out of order…. This happened during lunch time.
The day started out with getting kids out the door…
I went on a walk with my sis, Skye and Beck. There is just something about watching kids run that makes me so happy.
And then once Beck went down for a nap, I had my niece come over and I hit the trails. I wanted to do a challenge run (trails with a lot of elevation gain the day after a speed workout) and it was a gorgeous day to do it. My legs had to work for the climbing… 8 miles @ 9:05 average with about 1100 ft of up. This trail is awesome because you can see someone else running/hiking basically the entire time.
We’ve reached the time of year where coming home for a popsicle after a run is just the best. It was only 66 degrees for my run but it felt like 96 degrees. Time to acclimate.
And then we just had a normal day with all of the normal things:)
And we finished off the day with soccer!
Let’s chat about some favorite things from this week!
*If you are looking for an awesome tumbler this spring/summer, you have to try the Simple Modern ones. THEY ARE THE BEST and for $23, they are an awesome deal. I also have their cruiser tumbler (32 ounces) and their insulated travel tumbler! They come in so many fun colors and options and they keep your drink the temperature you want them to stay.
*Have I ever told you one of my financial goals? It’s to be able to buy one of those fancy massage chairs ha. I’ll put it right next to my bed and every single day of my life I will use it because I just think they are pure heaven (I’m guessing I’ll need another 20 years to reach this goal ha). Until then… I saw a bunch of people talking about this eye massager with heat and compression and I had to try it (happy early Mother’s Day to me!). I’m. In. Love. It instantly relaxes my entire body as soon as I put it on and calms down my anxiety. I use it before bed each night and it gives me time to just sit there and think in a completely relaxed state with no distractions and I love using this before bed instead of being on a screen. A lot of people say it helps them with migraines too but I haven’t experienced migraines for a while. I crave it during the day, it massages my temple and around my eyes so perfectly.
*BETH (ps she was one of the first blogs I ever read and she is just the BEST) shared this with me on Monday and it made me so happy.
*The only two store bought salsas I will ever need for the rest of my life. Island Salsa from TJ’s and Avocado Salsa (at Costco and Sam’s Club). I could swim in both of them.
*One can never have enough t-shirts this time of year especially when this one is only $8. This one is a boxy fit and they are as soft as can be. I ordered a medium but for the next one I get I will order a small.
Have a water bottle that you love? Tell me about it! And how much water do you drink on average each day?
