Tuesday’s Treats!

Tuesday’s Treats!

Today ended up being a busier day than normal for me.   I started my day by oversleeping which is probably why I felt rushed all morning.  Then I went on my run and showered/got ready super quickly.  I had video conference scheduled for 9am which was thankfully pushed to 10:30am, but I just barely made it.  The whole thing took about an hour and then I was able to catch lunch and errands with a friend. To start my…

Marathon Monday #5

Marathon Monday #5

Happy Marathon Monday everybody! My runs this week (as often happens) didn’t go as planned.  I had planned 4 runs but only squeezed in three.  This week will be better!! 😀 Here in the south, it’s been RAINING pretty much every day.  It’s nice for the crops and to break the humidity, but I do not run in thunderstorms!   So here’s how I did.   Tuesday – 1 min sprints with walking breaks in between Thursday — C25k Week…

  Hello!!  Here are some things from my Thursday Hubby lost 8 pounds!! Randomly, my hubby weighs in and sees an 8 pound loss!  How amazing!  The only things we’ve been doing are (1) cooking foods he likes & trying out new recipes and (2) strength training together. To see such a huge weight loss is super encouraging — especially since he wasn’t “really trying”.  Meaning he’s not on a strict diet or weight loss program and he’s not on…

Tuesday – Treat Day!

Tuesday – Treat Day!

For this week’s treat, hubby and I cleaned, organized, and completely rearranged our home office! It’s still in need of some carpet cleaning and some dusting — but by throwing out old papers, super old technology, and broken down clutter we cleared 4 garbage bags of stuff we don’t need!  The full dumpster means more room for activities!   In the process of all the sorting and cleaning, I completely destroyed my nails.  That meant another treat!  Manicure 😀  …

Just for Fun Friday

Just for Fun Friday

This week, Hubby and I are cooking new recipes for our Just for Fun activity.   We’re preparing Steak Au Poivre with Mashed potatoes, onion rings, and an iceberg wedge salad for supper.  Such extravagance means lots of prep work, so I’m glad that the Hubster is on board for helping.   Planning these recipes and excitedly chatting with the Hubster, made me shift into Domestic Goddess Mode!!   Made some homemade applesauce   And some Chocolate Chip Cookies   …

Here are some things I’m thinking about this Thursday (and this week)… Thirsty Thursday I’m focusing on hydrating today!  Starting with coffee and water, then moving on to ensure I drink a full 96 ounces of water today… Diet Pop has been creeping into my life again.  I know it’s terrible for you, but it’s SO GOOD and that’s bad… Other people’s marriages Our dear friends have been struggling in their marriage for as long as we’ve known them.  While…
