I know I said things would be quiet around here, but I have made some progress on the homework front, and was up early several mornings this week so I have a few minutes to spare. Plus, Chris is making me breakfast as we speak! Ah, now that’s love!
I have some random reports:
First up, what a difference a week makes! Remember how last week when I went for my long Friday walk it was grey and gross? If not, you can check out my lovely ensemble HERE.
This is what my ensemble looked like yesterday when I headed out for my long Friday walk:
Big difference! (my garden looking good, too!) It was H O T yesterday. I left the house at 7:30 in the morning and it was already hot. I walked 11 miles (just shy) in 3 hours and 20 minutes. I was a gross, sticky, salty mess by the time I got home. Lessons learned: I needed more food and water before and during the walk. I also could have used some advil around mile 7 or so. How am I feeling today? Really pretty darn good! My knees are a bit swollen and sore, but not painful at all, and my abs and low back are a bit sore, but not painful. My legs and feet feel great!
One week from today!
I’m pretty excited
to be done training to see my friends and participate in the Helvetia event for the third time. This time I am getting a half marathon finishers medal! YAY!
I rewarded myself yesterday for finishing one of my papers by freshening up my nails: on my toes a very silver sparkly color that Chris picked out. On my nails a very orangey-peach-coral color that looks awesome with my tan. 🙂
The best month of the entire year kicked off yesterday!
I love June!
Also yesterday the Salad A Day challenge kicked off! I am, along with OhSheGlows and a whole slew of my friends, eating a salad a day for the entire month of June! It is a great way to remain aware of keeping the veggie intake up. With the craziness that is happening in my garden with the out of control spinach and lettuce…well it’s a great time to do it!
|spinach, beet greens, leaf lettuce, yellow pepper, cucumber, sprouts, pickles, snow peas from my garden (so is the lettuce) and a sprinkle of feta. No dressing.|
|same mix of greens, sprouts, shredded carrot, pickle and tomato, no dressing.|
|same mix of greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, yellow peppers, sprouts, feta and leftover smoked pulled pork. DELICIOUS!|
You are welcome to join in the salad a day challenge as well! Post your salads to my Facebook wall.
Here is a picture of Roxie, just because.
Okay kids, my breakfast was delicious! Sausage and eggs. Now it’s time for me to get to work. There are speeches, presentations and papers to write!
Have a great Saturday!
