I’m so darn thankful for a Friday that didn’t involve a long training run or traveling across the country.
Speaking of, I’m trying to really rest while I can since there are some big things coming up in the near future I need to be sure I’m ready for. Gotta be smart (or try to) while I can, yes?
I had a prolotherapy treatment appointment early this morning so I got out of the house a little early so I could go for an easy 4 mile run close to the doctor office. (Confession- we were also out of milk at home so I knew it was best to get out of the house ASAP before everyone realized that.)
I woke up hungry and took a random snack of leftover pork from yesterday and an apple for the road. Not the easiest to eat, but kind of a fun combination to tide me over until breakfast.
It was nice to just be out to run without any time or mileage goals. I had about 40 minutes so just jogged around a bit and took some fun pictures.
Does it feel like we just went on a run together? Ha ha.
So yeah, I had my final prolotherapy appointment today. It was kind of a follow up after my 8 treatments. I can’t believe my first appointment was at the beginning of June and I couldn’t even walk without pain. Crazy how far things have come since then.
After my last two less than comfortable injections, my doctor turned me loose saying “one your own good behavior”. I warned him that I do not have a history of behaving well, but I’m working on changing my ways.
I will do as he says.
I felt bad about the whole not having any milk in the house thing so made sure to come home bringing goodies for the family.
I tried the new Thanksgiving Blend instead of my usual Venti Americano. Not sure that was the best choice. I wasn’t hugely impressed. But, it was fun drinking out of the first red cup of the year.
I know, crazy right? The red cups are back! What the?
Went for the normal egg white scramble with spinach at home with some sweet dumpling squash. I microwaved it instead of roasting it to save some time. Again, not sure that was the best choice, but oh well.
Not that you care, but we all went to the dentist today (everyone except STUFT Daddy).
First we sold all our Halloween candy from last night. Wait, not all, most of it. We picked out a few of our favorites to keep around.
Our dentist pays pretty well, $1 a pound and sends the candy to the troops.
We took our earnings and then put on a brave face for cleaning.
We survived, thank goodness. I’m not sure if it was the big bucks,
the TVs in the ceiling
or getting to pick out a toy from the toy chest afterwards.
Ha ha. Good times.
We made a pit stop at Trader Joe’s on the way home.
We still needed milk and some more “green balls”- these spinach and kale bites that the boys love and a brussel sprouts stalk.
We may or may not have caused a minor stalk falling issue as we were trying to find the one with the most sprouts on it. Oopsies.
I was super excited when I spotted these bags of shredded collards.
Not sure what exactly I’m going to do with them yet, but everything is better when it’s shredded right?
Okay, enjoy your weekend! Make sure to find time to rest, relax and be in the moment with the ones you love. Those are our big plans.
Well, that and a date night tonight with Modern Family, fish tacos and a lot of date night guacamole. You know, the norm. He he.
Good luck to everyone running The New York Marathon this weekend!
Have you had your first red cup yet?
What are your plans for the weekend?
