friday-4 miles on TM + arms
saturday- 7 miles outside
How was your weekend? We had a great weekend over here. Josh had Friday off and so we got to have a 3 day weekend! We all slept in, got a few chores done, then we were off to the movies. If you ask J what he wants to do he always says, “See a movie in the movie theater” or “Go to Pirate O’s” We chose to see a movie as a family. I smuggled some goodness in and of course we got a giant popcorn, this family loves popcorn!
Big Hero 6 was really good and J sat through the whole thing.
That night, we went out to Water Moon and got Bento Boxes with Miso soup. I am not a fan of Miso soup, so J ate mine. He’s just such a little man these days.
Saturday morning I. ran. outside. Can you believe it?! I actually ran outside!! Even though I hate the cold, there’s something about running in freshly fallen snow that is so great. The air feels so fresh and crisp and I think my body does really well in cooler temps.
I got thirsty half way through my 7 mile run and thought for sure the city would have already turned it off my beloved water fountain…nope! It was running and felt like the water was straight from a stream in the mountains, so good.
After my run however, I was so sore! I forget how much running outside in the cold does to you. You’re body burns more calories in the cold because it’s trying to stay warm(even though I was pretty toasty in my 3 shirts, pants, gloves, and ear warmer). Not only the cold, but the difference from running outside from my treadmill is killer! It’s good though, my body needs to get stronger and run outside more=)
I had to rush and get ready because I was speaking at a baptism. I teach the 7-8 year olds at church and when they turn 8 they can get baptized. Being their teacher I’ve gotten to speak at a few of the baptisms, it’s always really fun. Now that it’s snowing, that means warm church clothes with tights and boots. I love winter clothes, they’re so warm and boots are the best.
Later that afternoon, Whit, Lee Ann and I threw our cousin Char a baby shower. It’s her 3rd baby so it was a ‘diaper shower.’ It was so much fun to meet new people and enjoy yummy food together. Of course, I’m dying to hold that new baby when she comes! I made this recipe( I didn’t add the jalapenos) and it was really good. If you’re need of a cheese dip for football season, this one is so easy!
Sunday as always was nice and chill. J hasn’t been feeling too great(has a cough) so we kept it pretty low key. I did finish my super easy craft from the other day. I found it here. If I can do it, you can do it ha.
do you get more sore when you run outside?
what’s your favorite veggie in the winter?
