Weekend recap

Quick weekend recap. The good: Celebrated Lawrence’s birthday with tasty Indian food and Cheesecake Factory cheesecake.  Took the kids to a birthday party at a bounce house place where they could get out all of their energy after being cooped up inside all day.  Went to my brother’s house for his famous chicken wings.  Got…

Happy Birthday to my favorite man!

Happy Birthday to the man I’m lucky to call my husband! We’ve been together a long time.  Since high school.  And through the highs and lows of this rocky road, I’m so grateful that I’m navigating life with him by my side. He’s given me the greatest gifts I could ever ask for. He spends…

4 Week Stats

As I was thinking about how I was feeling a month out from surgery yesterday, I thought it would be useful to start documenting my recovery so I can see where I’m at currently and where I was at each stage.  I’ll try to post stats every 2 weeks from here on out at least…

Karma

I’ve said a couple of times since my surgery that even though I’m definitely over the winter weather, the snow doesn’t bother me too much.  It’s easier for me to deal with the cold crappy weather than with perfect gorgeous running weather.  We’ve had a few of those days and every time, every.single.person who lives…

Let it go

Lawrence wasn’t home for dinner last night which meant breakfast for dinner.  I absolutely love breakfast food and could eat them every meal… and sometimes do.  Lawrence isn’t a fan of them at dinner so I don’t make them often.  But on days when I know he won’t be home, it’s a tasty and easy…

Branching out

Are we seriously going to get more snow this week???  I think at this point everyone I know is ready for winter to head on out and spring to settle in.  Definitely over it.  Moving on… I had to work Saturday and didn’t even get to enjoy the gorgeous day we had.  Saturdays are the…

Gym and Costco

Yesterday was just one of those days.  Motivation and energy was low.  I started off with 30 minutes on the rope pull machine and it was a suffer-fest from the beginning.  I guess some days are just like that.  I halfheartedly did some core and was taking a break when Lawrence sent a text saying…

Running doesn’t define me

I’ve been talking and reading a lot about running injuries lately.  It seems like every time I turn around someone else I know or another blog writer I follow is sidelined with an injury.  It’s frustrating.  It’s frustrating for me to be living with an injury.  But lately, it’s even harder for me to read…

Cast #2

3 Weeks!  3 weeks ago I had surgery, which means that I’ve been on crutches for 3 weeks now.  It’s actually gone more quickly than I thought it would but I’m definitely over it and ready to be walking around again. I had my cast changed yesterday and if you’re at all squeamish you should…

Bribery works

I was thinking about this blog yesterday and how my original intent was for it to be a running blog to keep me motivated and accountable.  In the past year it’s been pretty much anything BUT that because I’ve been doing so little running.  I’m really hoping this surgery changes all that and I can…

Weekend recap and healthy changes

Another snow storm last night means my doctor’s appointment and new cast will have to wait until tomorrow.  Lawrence took Brendan and his friend snow boarding today.  They left last night so they could get an early start on the slopes which means my shovelers are gone!  I guess I’m just snowed in until further…

I love coffee and my chiropractor

Yesterday I was in bed at 9.  Not sure why I was so exhausted but I was.  And also I’ve been going through this thing lately where, when I get into bed, I get really excited because it means that I get to go to sleep, wake up, and drink coffee!  That’s how much I…
