My poor lil blog gets so neglected by me. I do like to keep it up for myself as a kind of journal to refer back to. One day I'll probably actually tell my family and close friends about it - but until I can seriously dedicate myself to posting more often I probably won't. It will just be me and hubby and the few followers I do actually have reading it!
The end of last week was rainy and dreary for days. I don't have any of the rubber rain boots that a lot of grown women do wear so I pulled out my blue cowboy-like boots to slosh around in the rain on casual Friday - yea for jeans to work!
I had wanted to go out for dinner Friday night and I was thinking about going to Red Robin. But then I saw this email from Red Robin for Saturday benefitting Special Olympics so we changed our dinner plans.
We tried out a new-to-us Mexican restaurant in our neighborhood. It's actually been open for almost a year but hubby and I had never been before. Can anyone say yum.... Chips and salsa and margaritas!!
Saturday morning it was still dreary and drizzly. I didn't really feel like running my 5 mile 10K training run but hubby convinced me to go with him and just do it - get it out of the way for the long weekend. I'm glad I did it too. We went to Fort Meade and ran there. Afterwards I was amazed with myself. I couldn't believe that I had completed 5 miles. It was a big boost to my confidence that I'll be able to successfully complete November's 10K.
I LOVED the calorie burn too! Totally earned the Red Robin burger I've been waiting for!
Oh yeah.... THIS happened...
After we stuffed ourselves we drove to Maryland Live Casino. It was fun. I didn't win. Hubby did okay.
Sunday morning we went to the commissary for groceries and then spent the whole day watching football.
|Can't wait!!! I will be watching!|
Monday the kids had school but hubby and I were off for Columbus Day. After I dropped them off at school I stopped at a couple of stores in search of pumpkin creamer. I couldn't find it. I did find this though.
Now how cool is this veggie platter? Hubby and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year at our house so you better believe I'll be all over Pinterest soon for some hosting ideas!
|I say it almost every night when I get in the bed - I love our bed! It is SOOOO comfortable!|
Tuesday I had to leave work early to pick up the kids from cross country practice so I didn't get in a lunchtime workout. Instead I went for a run when we got home while the kids did their homework. Unfortunately while I was out running - a small dog got mixed up in between my feet and I stumbled in the grass. I got up and was really irritated. Plus I had to limp off for a few minutes. Irritating.
Wednesday during my lunchtime I got in a cross training workout using the My Fitness Class App on my ipad.
Although I didn't burn a lot of calories I definitely got in a good arm workout!
How cool are these t-shirts? I need one... or two in my life...
