First, let’s talk about the fact that Emilee just got back from running the Tour du Mont Blanc with her husband. They are so hardcore and inspire me in every way.
Second, we were out running and saw Maddie while she was running, and so we invited ourselves to run her back to her house. I love it when things like that happen.
Nine miles @ 8:36 average, and I felt terrible. The rollercoaster of running = you go from feeling amazing (aka my Tuesday) to feeling like death (aka my Wednesday) over and over again:)
It was gorgeous, and the conversations were the best, so it was still a win.
I came home, and Brooke made everyone yogurt parfaits. They were delicious.
Beck is rolling around the house like crazy, and he is starting to get caught in random places. Time to baby-proof our home again. Luckily, we can close all of the doors in the main area so that he isn’t around any stairs!
I invited my sis over for lunch. She loves the TJ’s focaccia bread with their bruschetta sauce as much as I do.
I don’t know why I feel the need to always tell you the random ways my sister and I are complete opposites, but here is another…
She hates ice. They don’t have one ice cube in their entire house. The other day my ice maker was broken, and I refused to drink liquids at home until it was fixed. I ended up going over to a friend’s house and loading up my water bottles from her pebble ice machine to last me until our ice maker was fixed ha… Andrew says I’m high-maintenance when it comes to my drinks, and I 100% agree with him.
The best part of my day was finding out that Andrew got hired as Charge Nurse! He got a raise with the new position, and he is so happy about it all. We already had a date planned which was a perfect way to celebrate.
Andrew was a little unsure about my date idea ha, but he loved it by the end. We went to PLUNJ-SAUNA—> hot, cold, rest, repeat.
They invited me to come to try it out a bit ago and so when I was thinking about what we should do for a date, it popped into my head, and I am so happy that it did!
They do contrast therapy there which means you put your body in extreme temperatures and then allow it to rest.
We started in the sauna for about 10 minutes and we were sweating bullets by the end.
We then sat in the cold tubs for a few minutes which reminded me of the days I used to sit in the river after a hard workout.
We then allowed our bodies to rest before going through two more times. There are a ton of benefits like faster post-workout recovery, elevated mood, decreased swelling, reduced anxiety and we already can’t wait to go back.
We finished off the night at Aubergine for some coconut curry straight from heaven.
And then Yogurtland because it was next door. I will never understand his lack of toppings choices…
Who has a birthday, anniversary or race this month?
Has anyone had a raise or promotion or anything great happen with their work lately?
Give me your thoughts and feelings about ice.
Something you are high-maintenance about?
