Good morning everyone!
I am feeling particularly well this morning- it could have something to do with the fact that I finished my most recent read over the weekend AND I am SO close to finishing Week 4’s workout in FULL. (yes, that’s a lot of shouty capitals)
If you read Saturday’s post, you know that I am currently re-doing Week 4’s C25k workout. I simply couldn’t quite complete the last jogging interval without stopping or walking, so I felt like I needed to keep working on it until I felt comfortable. Not an easy decision.
Workout: A brisk 5 minute warm up walk, followed by: 3 min of jogging, 90 sec of walking, 5 min of jogging, 2.5 min of walking, 3 min of jogging, 90 sec of walking, and last but not least(and certainly the hardest)5 min of jogging. Phew!
I started off strong, slowed my pace A LOT on the first 5 minute jog, and ALMOST finished that last 5 minute jog!! I stopped 30 seconds before the end to walk and wanted to collapse on the grass. I was just out of steam. It’s getting so close, so maybe Wednesday I’ll be able to finish without the walking? We shall see…
Breakfast: I thawed a frozen whole wheat english muffin, topped it with low fat cheese, 2 fried eggs, and a smidge of black currant jam. It hit the spot and filled me up. I also indulged in a small glass of pulpy orange juice. For some reason it was calling my name this morning-
Over the weekend my little family and I celebrated Colette’s 12th birthday quietly at home. Meredith spent another night at my mom’s house, so it was just Dennis, Colette, and myself. Colette received a good bit of money from her grandparents, so we decided a mini-shopping spree to Charming Charlie’s was in order. They were having a mega sale on all clearance items, and we picked up several jewelry pieces for 80-90% off! Colette bought an adorable kitty charm necklace and some cross earrings for $4, while I grabbed some gold bracelets to stack, for just over $7. I love the little enamel bow ones…
After our jewelry binge, we headed to a nearby grocery store to pick up something sweet to celebrate. After drooling over donuts, cookies, and pastries, I mentioned a Mississippi Mud cake and Colette was sold. We grabbed a gallon of homemade vanilla ice cream and some Izze sodas as well. Let’s just say- we were feeling pretty good at that point.
Last night, as I was polishing off the last of the cake, I completed my latest library gem, The Night Circus!
It was an awesome read, so I’ll be sure to fill you guys in as soon as I get a chance. For now, I’ll leave you with this adorable picture of ‘Bun’ that Colette snapped over the weekend. He’s such a ham:
Have a fantastic Monday!
