I usually want to talk about anything and everything, but not today.
Made it on the treadmill before 5:30 am today. This was my view.
Yep, back on to Parenthood. The only TV I watch during the day is while I’m on the treadmill. If I was cool and had a little more money, I’d get a DVR in there and tape shows that are currently on. Maybe some day.
6 easy miles at about an 8:30 pace. I finished with plenty of time to get they boys’ Valentines ready for school while we packed lunches and ate breakfast.
A couple of things to share today:
I’ve been out of kabocha for like 4 days. Today I turned to roasting spaghetti squash with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice on it.
I forgot how great it is topped with some nut butter and such.
As a new member of the Rock ’n’ Blog Ambassador team I was featured on the Rock ‘n’ Roll website here.
Kind of fun.
(Code MAMAROCKS gets $10 off the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and 1/2 in case you want to come run in some beautiful CA weather.)
I think that a lot. Everyone is different, but for me running a marathon is hard. Sometimes though it’s harder to be mindful about taking care of your body the REST of the day. It’s so easy to be tempted to throw in the towel isn’t it?
I’ve been trying to figure out just what I want for this year when it comes to racing and such. I have quite a few races on the calendar already and am on the fence with possibly trying to tackle something longer than a marathon distance.
But, I think for right now I kind of just want to scale back a bit, rest more and have a clearer schedule. You know, I’m really good at having a jam packed schedule and such, but not that great at just slowing down (obviously). I really wish I was.
I also really like the idea of less pressure, more time.
Random, but I was talking to a good friend yesterday who asked me if I made more money doing what I’m doing now (blogging, racing, teaching fitness classes and being mama) than I made when I was a PE teacher full-time.
I laughed. Um, no.
that’s not why I do this. I do this so I can be home and be Mommy, not so I can make more money. It kind of put things in perspective for me a bit.
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Andrew and I have the same conversation every year. It goes a little something like this:
“We’re not doing anything for each other for Valentine’s Day are we?”
“Good. Let’s just have a nice dinner or date night instead.”
Oh and the best card I saw last night at Target was this one.
The boys’ faces make it just that much better too. Ha ha.
Oh ,and I’m working on prizes from the STUFT 60 Challenge. Post coming soon with the winners and such. It’s a bigger job than I thought. LOL.
What are you plans for Valentine’s Day?
