It’s Tuesday. Doesn’t it feel like it should be Friday already? geesh.
Yesterday I had some blood taken at the doctor so I didn’t feel like pushing myself through an intense heated yoga session. So instead I went for a three mile run. The weather was awesome outside – not too hot and not too cold. And now that the sun is staying up longer and longer I was actually able to see the ground I was running on.
I also wore my new shoes! Check out how bright pink these are!
They’re Saucony Kinvara 2s – I was previously running in the first version.
They really stood out with my black tights, haha. As soon as I put them on I realized how worn down my old pair are. It was like walking on clouds.
During my run my legs didn’t feel nearly as brick-like and I had no shin pain. It was all in all a pretty good run. Much better than yesterdays.
Dinner was simple last night – smart dogs with some steamer veggies on the side.
I spent the evening watching Revenge on Hulu.(source)
Is anyone else addicted to this show? I just got into it so I’m literally on episode 3 but I can’t wait to catch up and watch it in “real time”.

Ew, its cold and rainy outside today.

I was out running by 5pm in my reflective vest to get as much of it done before it got super dark as possible. I ran the most random path last night – trying to stay on sidewalks (which are sparse in our neighborhood) since it got dark about 10 minutes in. If I had used my garmin it probably would have looked like a bunch of overlapping circles. There was only so many places to go – haha.
Dinner last night was boring, leftover thanksgiving “turkey” and stuffing and leftover alfredo spinach lasagna. Tonight I think we’ll actually have to cook something again.
After dinner I curled up on the couch and watched the Sing Off finale while eating a sugar cookie bar and drinking a cup of sugar cookie tea (from Celestial Seasons – their holiday flavors). It was nice. And I won’t say the winner in case you’re still catching up, but I definitely feel that the right group won. They were the most talented, had the most potential for selling records, and you could just tell how much it meant to them.
Enjoy your Tuesday – stay dry if it’s raining near you. And if it’s not, I’m jealous.
This morning started off with a quick interval run on the treadmill – 5 minutes running, 5 minutes quick incline walk x 3. Then I went to Wegmans to get the grocery shopping done. I picked up the usual stuff and finally a few fun things (I blame my empty stomach) - 1. Honey Stingers energy gels – I’ve been looking forever – so I picked them up – can’t wait to do a long run to try them out! 2. I also grabbed a couple pretzel rolls (they’re amazinggg) for the hubby and I to snack on. 3. I saw wraps sitting by the bread and their nutritition facts checked out so I figured I’d give them a shot instead of bread or sandwich thins for lunch. I’ve needed a switch up anyhow.
I met my grandma for brunch after shopping at a local breakfast place. And again, I was a bad blogger and neglected to get a photo, but I had 2 pieces of french toast, one egg scrambled and a fruit cup. It hit the spot.
Since then I’ve taken care of calling the cable company to cancel our service, laundry, packing for a quick trip tonight and makign some basic rice for a quick “snack.”
I’m off to watch some Glee (I’m almost through season one) and finish packing. I probably won’t be able to check in tomorrow but look for something interesting (and hopefully photos) on Sunday.
