I haven’t posted much because I’ve both been busy doing things and also not doing anything I haven’t already written about a lot.
First, my workout recap from last week-
Sunday 1/3- nothing. There are a few days of nothing.
Monday 1/4- 6 mile run, 29 degrees outside. Snow run!
Tuesday 1/5- aaahhh nothin.
Wednesday 1/6- 3 mile run with the dogs, 2.5 mile walk. There is a SUPER cute coffee shop near my sisters house that has a $1 coffee deal after noon, so I walked down and got a coffee. Good way to get some walking in, and vitamin d! I need to be on top of it now that I’m back in New England. It’s hard to get enough sun time, especially compared to living in SoCal. I’m trying to be outside as much as possible. The sunshine and outside air REALLY help with emotional business.
Thursday 1/7- 4 mile run with the dogs, 2 miles on the treadmill, 40 “floors” on the stairclimber, and 1000m on the erg (rowing machine). I finally joined a gym! It’s an alright gym. It’s pretty small, but that’s kind of nice. Apparently the spin classes are in SUPER high demand, people call up at like 5am to sign up for the next day. Whoa.
Friday 1/8- fun day! Clare (sister), Liza, Cate (nieces), and I went down to Newport for breakfast and hang out. Clare had some meetings, so we all went for breakfast (pancaaaaaakes) and then Liza and I went to a playground!
It was a little cold. Like, freezing. We went home, and watched some cooking videos before nap time.
Then I went to CT! My friends teach at a school in CT, one (Dave) is the choir/music director there, and was hosting an a cappella frstival/competition, and asked a couple of us if we would judge one of the nights! I mostly was going to hang out with them… These friends I’ve known for a long long time. At least 10 years, one friend that was there I’ve known for 13 years! That night we went out for food (candied bacon lollipops. So damn good.), and went to bed past midnight. I know, wild child. (For the record, I used to stay awake for DAYS and not just because of the cocaine. I was a partier, stay up late, start and close the party. Now I enjoy sleep, a little. Okay, a lot.)
Saturday 1/9- late ish start to the day, everyone was pretty tired. Reminisced over breakfast, and then a couple of us went on a 3 mile walk. My friend Kim is my twin, we met 10ish years ago when she was dating and then go engaged to my friend Dave’s brother. Everyone that met her was like “who are…. Are you Mary’s sister??” She is a mom now, with 3 year old twins and a 1.5 year older. Soooo she’s pretty busy. Luckily, she was able to come out for the walk!
There was another competition that night that I didn’t have to judge, so I just went to hang out and listen to music. Granted, it WAS high school a cappella, but it was still fun. And then we ended up going back to Dave and Kata’s house, ate some pizza, chilled out, and again stayed up past midnight.
And Sunday it POURED. So much rain, and lightning, it was great. Got back to RI, and Liza wanted to watch “Ariel” immediately. I got her hooked on the Little Mermaid. Eff yeah! Maybe take a little break from Frozen…. But not really.
This week now is already better workout wise, and diet wise. When I’m working out more, I feel better and I eat better, I crave healthier things, and I don’t eat as mindlessly. Now, did I still eat an amazing molten chocolate mug cake tonight… But OVERALL I’m doing better.
Lets wrap it up with some pictures!
