Since the 4 miles on Monday yielded no ill-effects, I set out on Tues for 5miles. I headed out before sunrise to make sure I got the 5 in before my 7am meeting. I work best under tight timelines. So I was really pushing the pace (for me) to get back to the house in time for the conference call. I got back at 6:50am and immediately found out the meeting was pushed to 8am. Oh well. Thanks for the motivation to push the pace.
The other funny from this particular morning was that I was locked in my neighborhood. We live in a gated community and the gates were still closed when I got to the front and even the side gate was locked! I was trapped!!! But just a few minutes later the gates opened and I was released. I did consider rolling myself under the gate, but it turned out to not be necessary. Does my shape even roll?
Run: 5miles / 55:20
I did better with food today. Breakfast was coffee and a chocolate chip muffin (ok, not better). Lunch was leftover jambalaya. There was an apple, half of a mango smoothie and some snack mix. Then dinner was a pork chop with some Heinz 57, a sweet potato and a steamed veggie mix. And white wine.
I am a closet internet shopper. Ok, so not so closeted. But I had an Old Navy coupon and found tons on their website for like $7 (each). Add that to my Pinterest Fashion board (noodles2245 if you want to follow) and I needed some new pieces for the cooler weather. It was ALL shirts to go with my sweaters and pants. I already have the shoes. So now I should be good to go.
Still waiting on the Sephora order. Um, $6 UD shadows. YES Please!
Friday started out pretty slow. And since I still had (have) Sticky-Fingers Bars in the fridge, I didn’t want to bake anything too sweet. So I opted for a classic Sour Cream Coffee Cake. You can find it here.
This is Annabelle. After she pitched a fit last night because she wasn’t in the yard when it was being mowed, she decided to find herself a treat. She came out of the other room with her entire face covered in cat litter. She is “the poo eater.”
Saturday I decided not to force a long run and just hit the gym. You can read it here.
And at the same time that Annabelle was satisfying her sweet tooth, this was happening. Lucie has a thing for baskets. Not sure what this one us doing.
Sunday, you will see that it may not have been long, but there was a run on Saturday after all! And that I was excited to hit up the sale at Ulta. I did NOT go to Old Navy. You can read it here.
Today will be quiet. Some work to get done and maybe a Spanish lesson. More cleaning. The week ahead looks warm and I am even going to try and give the dogs a bath this week. Thought ought to make for some comedy on the blog.
Remember my Long Run Saturday post? I said I wasn’t feeling the running thing. Well, I got to the gym and decidedto give it a go. And ended up running an easy 6 miles. Plus another mile with the dogs (walked) when I got home. Isn’t it funny how some days are like that? It felt great and I was happy with the run.
Today is Sloth Sunday except for one thing…….SALE at ULTA!!! I have the Natural Eye Palette from Too Faced and LOVE it. So of course I am going back for the Naked palette. And then there are t-shirts on sale at Old Navy. In the same shopping plaza as Ulta. I am glad I got the big Costco run done yesterday. Because then I can just relax for the rest of the afternoon/evening.
Does anyone else have those odd hairspray spots on their bathroom walls? The ones even a Magic Eraser doesn’t get out. Well, it turns out fabric softener is the solution! What I read online suggested using liquid fabric softener mixed with water. But I only had dryer sheets. So I just ran one of those under the faucet and used it on the wall gently, just like the Magic Eraser. A DEFINITE improvement with no painting.
Today, we hit the gym and I did 5 miles on the elliptical and some quick ab work. Then we ended up at Old Navy (can you say and additional 50% off CLEARANCE…I scored 2 pairs of gloves for $0.23) and then to see the new Underworld movie. Let me spare you. Save your money. Wait for the DVD.
Time for some fruit.
