This is my optimistic plan. I have been hit with a narley cold. Surgery knocked my immune system down so i am catching everything, which super sucks, but this too shall pass.
What does your workout plan look like this week?
Hi!!!! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! Mine didn’t go quite at planned. I was supposed to meet my boyfriend’s family but Wednesday during the day his grandma fell and broke her hip and was hospitalized. Thanksgiving was cancelled and he drove up by himself to see her in the hospital.
I’ve been having serious subway cravings lately.
A coworkers wife brought us some seriously delicious brown sugar cinnamon cupcakes.
My roommate left me an apple pie cupcake on thanksgiving 😌
I made north african shrimp couscous from blue apron as well as mac and cheese
Trailing the blonde may now be trailing the red head.
My roommate helped me dye my hair.
I woke up today with a cold 😦 Another Cold!!!
Hopefully i can kick this quick. I hate cold season.
Talk to you soon!!!!
How was your thanksgiving?
Have you been sick this season?
Thanksgiving is a great holiday, we all remember what we are thankful for, it makes people re-evaluate which is good.
Don’t forget to thank the earth for the bounty it has supplied you on not only this day but all through the winter. Unless you live or work on a farm most of us forget that all our food (unless it was made in a lab or with a machine) had to be grown and brought to us.
I am very excited for the day that i have my own farmhouse/B&B and can host a big Thanksgiving for my friends and family.
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
Are you excited for tomorrow?! I am!
Ok warning for any men, GIRL POST!!!!
A few weeks ago i read about LOLA on The Hungry Runner Girl‘s Blog. They are a tampon delivery service. She had a coupon posted that got you your first month’s box for $5. Of course i was going to try it!
I just got my first box and it is awesome!!!!! You can decieded how many of each size you want and it is only $10/month for 1 box of 18 tampons. It is delivered every month like clockwork. Abso-freaking-lutly!! I am hooked.
Now i have a coupon code for you!!!
Get your first month’s box for $5 with this coupon code:
You have to use it this week though! But come on, $5 for a box of tampons. Yes.
2 days until Thanksgiving!!!
Sunday morning i made cinnamon rolls and when i say made i mean i opened the package and put them in the oven Hahahahaha. Artemis and i tried for another run, i made sure she pooped right before we left and this time we got about 7 minutes into the walk until she pooped again. My mom made a good point that she might be nervous in the new area causing her to go more. We will keep trying.
Sunday night i hoped on the treadmill and did my first run post surgery…..2 whole miles!!! And holy crap was it hard. A month off running is a looooong time to the body.
Very hard work.
But its a step in the right direction!!!!
Blue Apron meal #2 this week.
I still love the preportioned awesomeness.
I may have been drinking some hot chocolate while cooking.
Once again i tweaked it a little. I cooked some of the onions which was not part of the recipe.
Sadly i missed my training appt tonight. I took the dogs out, ate half a bagel, locked the door handle and walked out the door…….literally 3 steps later i realized my keys were still on the hook after i had slammed the locked door shut. I sat in the 38degree weather in workout for about 40 minutes then my toes were burning which is not good, neither of my roommates had answered so i did a quick walk the .75 miles to a nearby subway where i bought dinner (i did have my purse thankfully). My roommate came and picked me up.
I continued the cardio kick and hopped on the recumbent bike in the bonus room for 35 minutes then watched some amazing race. An oddly slow yet busy night.
Being locked out in the freezing rain oddly made me miss the trail. I know i would have spent many days like that on the trail.
How was your Sunday and Monday?
Have you ever locked yourself out? How did you get back inside?
Monday- gym session with my trainer, lower body
Tuesday-going to see mockingjay hopefully so probably OFF
Wednesday- saying goodbye to my friend before she moves, hopefully 30 min on the bike if i don’t get home too late.
Thursday-turkey day!!!!! Normally i would try and run 2-3 miles to combat all the calories but the bf and i will be driving the 3 hours to his house leaving around 8am so not this year.
Friday-in the pool with my trainer
Saturday/Sunday- run 2.5 miles.
What are your workout plans this week?
I found this to be a really interesting book.
It is about a woman who is walking on the beach with her fiance’s daughther, she looks away and the girl is kidnapped. No spoiler that is all in the description.
Warning, it is a slow moving book, there are little to no OMG moments but it is written beautifully. There is a lot of description and great wording. I did really enjoy this book.
And i thought it was a very great read diving into the lives of people who’s lives have been torn apart.
