Friday- Got my bootie on the stairmill for 40 minutes (they were long). Sported my brand new Mizuno Wave Sayonaras to celebrate their release.
Then went on that elliptical in the background for 30 minutes. Cross country setting at a pretty difficult level. I wanted to make my time count.
Started the day with a very slow run to test out the hip situation.
I can’t remember if I ever ran with it before, but it held my cell phone quite nicely.
There used to be a time when some Saturdays it felt like a chore to fit in a run. Sometimes I knew I just needed to log the miles for my training for the week.
Yesterday was different. I was excited to set my alarm for the early hours of the morning at the possibility to sneak out of the house while everyone was still sleeping.
Being out there all by myself was amazing. Slow, a little uncomfortable,yet, thankful for every single step.
Surprisingly excited to run up this ginormous hill (it’s bigger in person) since I hadn’t gotten the chance in over 3 months.
Slow and steady is the way to go these days.
After sucking down a quick smoothie I taught boot camp in the park.
Our ending circuit was this: rotational lunges with the sandbag, kettle bell swings, jump rope, push ups and knee repeaters on the bench. 1 minutes each and we went through twice.
A couple of random eats from the past few days.
This smoothie. Chocolate, fresh strawberries, cocoa, etc. Mmm hmm….
Full recipe posted on instagram.
Yesterday was the egg-cellent mocha smoothie with the addition of some organic kale.
The other night I made the cutest little chicken pizza to go with a huge load of zucchini pizzas.
Isn’t it cute? The finished product looked a little something like this.
Ha ha ha.
I made a little egg on the side to top it off.
Before the sauce.
After the sauce.
It was delightful.
And in my couple of trips outside to take these pictures I managed to step in a huge plop of chicken poop. That was fun.
So, keeping up with bloggy land, emails and work is NOT easy without a laptop. But, I kept saying I needed a little break, and hey, my laptop decided to die on me. I guess it forced me on a little sabbatical. How nice, yes?
My niece introduced me to the song “This is Love” by Josh Turner and I’ve been listening to it over and over this weekend. Such a good message. The timing is perfect for right too.
Work, etc. that has to be done and usually stresses me out and takes the majority of my time and attention,
it can be done some other time.
Seriously, this song is AWESOME!
I’ve got someone who waits. I’ve actually got a few people who have been waiting for a really long time for a little extra attention.
They give my way too much attention and love all the time. They even gave my flowers just the other day at the gym.
That’s where I need to be right now. With them.
As long as it takes to really show them I love them.
Who knew a broken laptop would be a little hidden blessing.
Just like an injury.
So, friends, I “gotta run”.
I need to be with my main men today. Hopefully they’ll help me tackle a disaster of a house. (We’ve got a lot of projects all going on at the same time. That’s never fun and it’s not pretty here friends.)
They wear the gloves, but they don’t like to help. Weird.
Enjoy your day!
TIME IS LOVE!
Make it count.
This guy has already been waiting a little too long this morning. And we haven’t even made coffee yet.
We listened to the song at least 5 times together though while writing this. He’s a fan too.
Have a wonderful day!
