Project 365; Week 39

As far as weeks go, this one was pretty slow.

Sept. 21

I hadn’t run in, like, two months or some nonsense. So I ran. And I haven’t run since. Sigh. It felt good, though.

Sept. 22

Vet appointment with two dogs and one toddler. It was a riot.

Sept. 23

Ivy and I went to see Demi Lovato. It was a lot of fun. This time, though, she fell asleep for a little while at the end.

Because it was a school night, well into the school year, she had to do homework while we had dinner.

Sept. 24

Erv and I had to run around, and he got a donut from the gas station. And it made my heart break, since donuts were one of my very favorite foods before we went gluten free. Sure, we can order them, but they’re not the same (and more expensive). (The boys aren’t gluten free except at home, where we almost never have gluten in the house)

Sept. 25

With my favorite 3 month old (really, she and I are likethis).

Sept. 26

It was Johnny Appleseed day at school.

And speaking of gluten free, I made my first loaf of semi-homemade sandwich bread from Pamela’s bread mix (affiliate link, yo). It was really good, so there were a lot of peanut butter and jellies enjoyed this week.

Sept. 27

Out in the country, we see all kinds of creatures on our window screens. Usually moths, but sometimes, somebody more interesting comes along.

How was your week?

The Winter Running Doldrums

I received a shirt from Allied Shirts to review, but all opinions are my own. Y’all, the winter blahs have set in. It’s cold (SO COLD). It’s dry, it’s sometimes snowy, sometimes windy. Who’s idea was it to run a half marathon in January?! Oh yeah. MINE. But it’ll be fine, because it’s in Disney World, soContinue Reading

Project 365 (Week 34)

I think this was the first full week of school for the big two, and the countdown to school starting for the preschooler. It was kind of a whirlwind. Aug. 18 I got up EARLY (before the sun) to run my longest ever long run for my half marathon training, 9 miles. While I wasContinue Reading

Project 365 (Week 28)

This was a full week of swimming lessons and running and running around. I’m exhausted! July 7 I took these three to the store, mostly for birthday cupcake decorating paraphernalia. I didn’t have to, but it was a short trip. So….it was exciting for them, at least. July 8 First day of swimming lessons. EverybodyContinue Reading

Project 365 (Week 26)

June 23 Sunday was our zoo and 5K day. June 24 Erv had almost the full day with me to himself (the big three were still on a trip with my parents), so we tried to enjoy ourselves. And then the big three came home….worn OUT. June 25 It was a hot day, but aContinue Reading

Dirty Girls

Remember when I told you about the Dirty Girl Mud Run, and how excited I was about it? Well, it was last Saturday, and it was pretty. awesome. My sister-in-law ended up not being about to go because of their summer travel schedule, but my cousin and I still got to participate together (thank goodness….neitherContinue Reading

We mostly did some track running and playground hopping. June 2 A laaaazy Sunday started with me in bed and the girls going through my closet.Continue Reading

Mamavation Update (6-2)

A lot has been going on here lately, fitness-wise. I had one of those weeks this week where I thought, if I don’t see results, I GIVE UP. Not really (probably), but I worked really hard this week. I mentioned before that I was starting a new workout program (I bought it for myself forContinue Reading
