Woah the weekend that I had a day off! It was Christmas, but still days where I am not scheduled to work at all have a bit of a relaxing feel. Today I am linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats Fast Feets for Week in Review. For me, it’s a time to reflect on the wins of the past few days.
Christmas morning was beautiful! I had a tempo interval workout on the docket. 4x(10@6:00 pace) with 5 minutes easy in between. Uncomfortably hard but doable. Walking home, I found a fruit basket just sitting on a bench. Maybe one fruit taken out of it and some condensation from the night, but perfect otherwise. So I took it. Winning
Dinners with the 8 of us are always…well, I have no idea what anyone is talking about, so I sort of nob at times and eat my potatoes. It wasn’t so bad, but I was glad to have an out to the movies after a couple hours. There’s only so much I can pretend to know about who owns what field and where the best place to put duck decoys would be. Overall, I like hanging out with my family one-on-one better than us all together. I get lost in the conversation a lot and it feels weird.
I think the blue flavor tastes like freezer pops with a celery aftertaste. Does anyone else feel the same way about this? The movie, staring Jennifer Lawrence was a rags-to-riches film about a woman who invents a better mop. I really enjoyed it, but it wasn’t the best I’d seen this year. I just love seeing people work hard and get results.
I began the morning with a dark run beginning at 5:45. IT was foggy and I really should have remembered my headlamp. Everything was going well, until I took a pit stop at a station. This is 6:30 in the morning, 9 miles into my 11.5 mile run and nothing is open except this gas station. The woman was so nice because on the door it says NO PUBLIC RESTROOM, but she let me use it anyway. So I get into the bathroom and start to peel off my gloves and am hit with this intense pain. My hands were so numb and I had no idea, so it caught me off guard and I started crying. I had a small meltdown in the bathroom because I really was just so surprised. I then realized I was really thirsty…so I did something I do not advise. I grabbed a random cup that was in the ledge of the mirror (it was bent and probably not fresh, and turned on the faucet (which looked like a garden hose) and downed a cup of water. I then somehow got my gloves back on and finished the run.
Not my most favorite moment.
I then went to work, and ate some really good cauliflower Parmesan soup I made. After work I went shopping because I realized I hadn’t bought myself actual clothes in 2 years. I got a bit of money for Christmas and needed something. Almost $100 later, and here we are.
I remembered to light a candle when I ate breakfast because it makes me feel fancy.
I wore the new earrings my mother got me to work. Funny story about these; she tried to give them to me last month at Thanksgiving, but it was a choice between these and another pair and I couldn’t decide so I told her I didn’t want either. Luckily she remembered and gave me these for Christmas. What a doll 🙂
Lastly, I follow some really cool make-up Instagrams, not because I would ever want to do it, but because it is really a work of art. This one, being a Harry Potter nerd hit me in all the good places. How can you not appreciate that talent?
Have a great Monday!
What is the best thing you did this weekend?
What is the most you’ve spent on clothes at one store?
