Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I give you a peek into how I live my healthy, happy life!

 

bad idea, bad mood, good food

bad idea, bad mood, good food

I don't know what came over me, but at noon on Saturday, I just got the urge to go for a little "just for fun" run. At the turnaround point 2.3 miles in, I realized it was a bad idea and remembered why I stick to short sprints and leisurely runs under 3.5 miles max only when the weather is perfect and cool and lovely. Woof.

This juice was such a delicious treat afterwards...

I switched my closets and made this one my Lilly closet because I thought it had more space. I was wrong and it is kind of exploding- I'm just going to need to make two ;)

That night, Mike and I went to Worcester for a night with our good friends who we hadn't seen since our wedding! We went to the Sole Proprietor {one of our favorites!} and Wormtown Brewery afterwards- it really nice to hang out with them finally!

Sunday was just a bad day with no good reason why. We took the dogs for a long walk, but other than that, I spent it laying around being bored and mad.

Dinner was the best part of Sunday...

This morning, I had to take a picture to prove what happens every morning I get up at 4am... Bo jumps right into my spot {Ruby stays on her bed on the floor} and all three of my family members sleep for a couple more hours.

And I get busy doing stuff like this:

That WOD got me pretty good- 10 minutes sounds so short and simple- no, no, no. The shorter the WOD, the higher the intensity. I did awesome on my double unders and handstand push ups, but my toes to bar were not so good after a couple rounds. After the WOD, my coach helped me on how to be more efficient with them, so hopefully that will help next time. 

Speaking of Ruby's bed, Bo got a little upset today and destroyed it :( We washed the pillowcase thing for it, and the foamy inside was just too appealing to Bo. I feel bad for Rubes, she loves that thing!! Mike ordered her a new one that we will have to make sure we don't leave without its cover on!

I spent today at school finishing up some stuff in my classroom. I'm very ready, but keep finding new projects everytime I finish one! Tomorrow is the last day before our meetings start, so I'm going to go finish up for real :)

This afternoon, I had front squats 5x3. I did all my sets at 190#, and this was my last one. I am now trying to use my new backsquat position in my front squat but it's hard- I go too deep into my squat, so I still need to figure that out :/ 

Oh, and meal #6 of the day- just because it's not in Tupperware and I thought it was pretty!
