Well…I must admit. We took the last week off from our normal running routine. You know how easy it’d be to quit since we didn’t run in over a week? For me…pretty darn easy.
We took the week off for a few different reasons. 1. I didn’t feel like running with such a fresh tattoo, especially since it was on my leg and was pretty large. 2. We went out-of-town and weren’t really sure how to occupy the kids while we were on our runs. Right now, we run around the park. They play…we run. Easy enough.
I’m glad I got my lazy butt up tonight and did it. I was dreading it. I thought it was going to be a lot harder since we’d taken that time off. Any other time, I’d probably just got out of routine and quit. I’m a big quitter when it comes to diet and exercise. It’s just so much easier to be lazy and eat junk. I hate to admit that, but it’s true.
I think I’m going to set a goal. I want to do a 5k. It’s something I’ve never done before and I really wanna do it!! I’m thinking about Thanksgiving day. I think it’d be the perfect day and I’d never forget my first 5k being on Thanksgiving. Plus, it gives us plenty of time to get ready.
I’m so excited just thinking about it!
I’m off to do some 5k research.
As I mentioned last night…we went to Frontier City today!
We had so much fun!
Frontier City was sold out today, so you can imagine how crowded it was. We didn’t get to ride as many rides as we’d hoped, but we still had a great time. Atticus isn’t much of a thrill seeker, so him and I sat and watched the others ride a few rides. As the boys were in the bath tonight I asked them what their favorite thing about today was. Bonus said “Water park!” Atticus said “Farris wheel!”
The water park is always a big hit with the kids. Today was a perfect day for it…It was so hot. Jeremy and I rode a few water slides, but there were so many kids running around that we decided it was best to hang out on the side lines today.
We spent a good 6 hours riding rides. Thank god it was not our running day! I seriously don’t know how I’m even awake right now. The heat is exhausting! I felt like no matter how much water I drank, it was never enough.
Looking forward to a good nights sleep, school with the boys, and running with Jeremy tomorrow.
Off to another great week! Enjoy your Monday everyone.
Hello all! Did everyone have a good day today? Mine was pretty good. Today was our running day…I always feel great afterwards. I had a chance to hang out with my granny this evening. She is such a hoot. I swear…I wish you could meet her. She’s loud, crazy, and knows how to play a good hand of Skipbo. She’s smart and smart mouthed. 😉 She’s not your average grandma. She’s 72 and gets around like a 50-year-old. When we go shopping, I swear she has more energy than me!
I stayed the night with her on a regular basis when I was younger. I remember sitting on the porch swing and she’d listen to me read. She came to every sporting event I had growing up. I could hear her screaming at me over hundreds of people. She was my biggest fan.
Now that we moved back to Oklahoma, she lives less than a mile away from us. The boys love her. Bonus is staying the night with her tonight and she spoils him rotten. He loves going to grannys house. He’d probably live over there if I let him. Not to mention, she lives across the street from the park!
I’m very thankful they get to spend time with her like I did growing up.
She makes me laugh on a daily basis and I feel grateful to have her around.
Here’s a picture of her and the boys from last December.
She doesn’t have internet and she will never see this post…but I want everyone to know how grateful I am to have such a great grandma. She may drive me nuts at times, but it doesn’t matter. She is still the best grandma I could ever ask for.
See you tomorrow.
