Kimbo and I ran this morning in the rain, it was actually quite nice. I didn’t leash Kimbo since we once again had the entire levee to ourselves. She stayed right with me, only lagging a bit toward the end with her whole youngest hanging outta her mouth. She’s been such a nice running partner.
And I had Kale Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta and the sauce was made with Greek yogurt and Miracle Noodles!!!
Had a terrific morning strength training workout followed by a chilly, raining run with my furry pup! Took her off the leash today since the path was empty, and to my surprise she didn’t get more than 5 feet from me. She’s a terrific running partner and finally gaining a little speed.
Tonight, since I just heated up a pre-made freezer meal that I prepped last week, I had time to make some delicious and super healthy Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins for my fam!!!
Sundays I reserve for making a menu for the fam and a menu for myself, looking up recipes we would like that I want to try and make, making the grocery list because I don’t like a bunch of un-needed junk in my pantry, and grocery shopping.
Went to the track this morning with Haili.
While we were running she said, “we should get BFF Runner necklaces”, then yelled “BFR’s!!! Best Friend Runners!”, I just wanted to kiss her whole face at that moment!
Also, I haven’t talked about Bountiful Basket before but let me tell you, it is great. It’s a co-op for produce. On Monday at noon, you go online to bountifulbaskets.org. You select your basket for $15 then any add-ons. Then the following Saturday you meet and pick up your basket. It’s awesome!
Then I added on a case of strawberries for $14!!! Miss Graci and I have already eaten a full clamshell and have plans for smoothies!!
All week this week I have thought, “Just make it to Friday”. Work has been exceptionally challenging this week. I love my job, please understand that, but working in Skilled Nursing Facilities has its challenges. Skilled Nursing has an annual survey every year, no matter what state you live in, this is a federal regulation. They have these regulations in place to protect vulnerable elderly adults, I appreciate what they mean, I understand their importance, but I struggle with having a “mock survey” by our “peers”… So yes, a lot more than I usually share about my professional life, but it was a very long, very frustrating week at work. And when you work in a workplace that is 99% women, it can get quite dramatic at times, so my Friday afternoon, after the “survey team” left, there was just more drama and fireworks at work. So with utmost agreement with the term, “Thank God Its Friday”.
Amazing. Totally Amazing.
This morning was a chilly run in the rain. It was actually quite refreshing. Running outside is quite refreshing, breaking up with my treadmill has felt so good. Unfortunately, the weather channel (well app) seems to think it is going to snow tonight, I hope not… But it’s not supposed to stick. I hope. This morning I ran the levee, there is a pull out that is just down our hill and I do a loop and back. Today I made it to my turn-around, turned back and out of nowhere ran a coyote. It was clearly more scared of me, than I was of it, but geez I was caught off guard.
