It is 7:45pm and i am exhausted. I am sitting in my room tearing up while watching the wedding in Breaking Dawn part 1. Don’t judge lol. Exhaustion makes people more emotional. I’ve always loved the wedding in this movie and ibwas watching Charlie walk Bella down the isle him totally tearing up and i just got that sad I’ll never have that moment. For those that don’t know my dad died almost 8 years ago some days it still hurts like it was yesterday.
Ok enough with the depressing.
Another 7+ hour day working at the tulip farm. It was a beautiful day so the festival was PACKED. Today was the busiest day they have had in the 32ish years they have been doing this.
My trying to take the picture and smile while squinting in the sun and not run into anyone.
As soon as i got home i changed into workout clothes because if i sit down i am not getting back up.
Artemis and i got out and ran 2.5 miles in the beautiful day.
My right foot really hates it when i stand on it for 7+ hours then run over 1.5 miles on it.
Yay!!!!! My peas and corn are starting to sprout!! Not much action from the onions and potatos yet though. Fingers crossed.
Easiest healthy dinner. You saute whatever veggies you have in the fridge then pour some bottled pasta sauce over it.
Add a little basil and cheese and shovel in mouth because you are starving and starting to crash.
Then pass out from exhaustion.
How was your Saturday?
The rain managed to actually stay away most of the weekend which was lovely. It hit Saturday night and late today afternoon/evening.
Last night poor Artemis didnt feel too good. Her tummy was making all kinds of crazy sounds and she wasn’t hungry. She got better though thankfully and when i woke up her food was eaten and she has gotten better and better today.
My guess is she either ate something she shouldn’t have or just had a little upset tummy. Either way it just needed to work its way out of her system which it did today.
The roomies and i FINALLY took our tree down…….yes i mean Christmas tree lol. It only took us until March..not too bad right? Lol
On another but way worse roomie note, my roommates care got stolen out of our driveway last night?! I feel so bad for her. I am so thankful my car has an alarm and GPS so the cops can track it if anything ever happens. Knock on wood.
Other sad news i own almost 5k in medical bills from my surgery in October. Insurance denied my paying more because it was an out of network provider. Oy, this being an adult stuff rocks. Thankfully i can set up a payment plan.
In happier news…..
The tomato and pepper starters are exploding!!!
I am so excited!
Also i ran 4 miles today!!! And the 4 miles we outside!!!!
Artemis ran the first 1.5 miles with me then she got tired so i dropped her off at home. Shes getting over her tummy troubles so i didn’t want to push it.
So i workout a pretty good amount. These are the things that help keep me going. Along with pre-workout, protien and recovery but ill talk about that another day.
I also did a lot of reading this weekend which was glorius.
Do you take any suppliments?
What’s the weather like where you are?
If you have dogs, do they run with you?
Happy Friday!!! Like so many Americans i live for the weekends.
Today will be a short and sweet post.
Got up and took Artemis for a walk/jog before work. I think thats a really good time to walk her because there are less people out and about. I think as it continues to warm up we will be good running buddies.
I thought that was a good quote.
Reached my step goal! Woot Woot!
The tomatoes and peppers are doing awesome!!!!
I am so grateful for my sweet girl. She has cuddled with me many a night that i have cried or just needed some cuddles during this breakup and all the drama with it. I am sad again tonight and having her here is a great comfort.
Goodnight i hope you had a great Friday night!
The sun is actually out here today in the Pacific Northwest so i just went for a little walk on my lunch and soaked up a little natural vitamin D.
I just ordered this:
So i can get my tomatoes and peppers started inside in the next few weeks.
I also set up my farming fridays wishlist on amazon:
I like wish lists on amazon because they dont clutter up my cart and whenever i have a little extra income……hahahaha like that actually happens, i know where to go to grab 1-2 things.
While i was at it i made one for working out stuff too
I just bought new running shoes off amazon!
Thankfully it is a brand i already use so i know my size and all that…….$31 on amazon!! How awesome is that!!!! In about a 5-6 weeks i’ll pop into the REI near me and see if they have any running shoes on clearance so i can have 2 pairs to switch back and forth with.
So as i said i have a 5k run tomorrow, yay! My goal is to be 1 minute (or more) faster than my time from December, Sunday will be yoga. Those are the only set in stone plans i have, some reading would be good.
What are your weekend plans?
Any Races? Workouts?
How often do you buy new workout shoes?
Todays running tip. This is actually a good idea the way they do this, especially since i dont have any ice packs.
Found this on pintrest and i’m pretty stoked with how it turned out.
I got compliments on my hair today.
She will chew anything.
Half marathon training starts in earnest next week!
I ordered some seeds!!
Next month i will start the indoor sow.
Here are the seeds I’ve boughten so far
I can’t wait to see if this corn turns out!!!
Finally Friday!!!! I’m free again, got my motor runnin for a wild weekend. (from a song)
This week has just dragged and dragged. I feel like i have had no energy and no desire to work. I have felt thoroughly unproductive.
Thursday morning i was up at that time in the morning. Got my swim workout done which was nice but man is that early.
I did Pretty good with my food today which made me happy. I had 1 snickernoodle cookie but i threw away 7-8 cookies.
Yay me!!! I bought cookie dough from someone at work who’s grandkids were doing some fundraiser. Now i am trying to get rid of them without killing my waistline. I hate to throw food away but yea.
So the farming Friday part! I am going to grow some of my own food this year, yep even in a duplex with 2 other girls.
I am going to put 2-3 pots on my deck and hope it holds along with trying to find a few places around our yard that i can container plant. So far i have 2 different kinds of heirloom tomato seeds, heirloom sweet pepper seeds, organic sugar snap pea seeds and container corn seeds, thats right this corn was designed to be planted in a container! How awesome is that!!!!
More to come soon!
How has your week been?
