Today was a day of errands for me........ get up, get ready, get son ready, get son to school, household shopping, GYN doctor appt, pick up taxes from CPA, grocery shopping, home to unload car, wash some laundry, run treadmill, back to town to mail package to Europe, pick up son.... and there was a bunch of other little things that occurred in between all that.... LOL! And, just recounting today's events makes my mind tired! :D
As you see by my training plan above, I missed Tuesday's run... such a slacker!!!! But, I am getting my motivation back!!!! Looking forward! Missed miles are in the past!
I am notorious about packing a cooler!!! Whether it is going to work or running errands....... Above is the snack I had packed with me to eat in between errands. It may look too complicated or messy, but honestly it is easy to tote around. In a ziplock bag I place a napkin and spoon. Then, I have my plain greek yogurt and a container of blackberries.
Throw the Blackberries in the yogurt..... gobble it down, and then put all the trash in the ziplock bag that held the napkin and spoon. Then, on your next stop, simply throw the ziplock bag in a nearby trash can (see below)! Easy on the go snack without a lot of fuss!!!!!
OK...... I am SOOOOOOOOooooooooo excited about this next thing.... I learned something new!!!!!!!! A few weeks back, I learned how to put a series of pictures into a video.....but, that isn't the exciting thing.... TODAY, I learned how to post to You Tube!!! My VERY own video!!!!. I am about as excited as I was when I first threw this blog out into cyberspace about a year ago! After a year, I am getting the hang of this blog thing..... well, sort of....... with working full time, I don't have a lot of time to put into the blog.... so, I do the best that I am able. Sure, I know, my blog is generic when compared to many others, but hey, I am ok with that... maybe one day, I will have one of those cool looking blogs... work in progress! :D
So, here it is, my VERY FIRST YOU TUBE VIDEO!!!!!!! EEeeeekkk!!! I am so stinkin' excited..... sure it isn't fancy and you get a big view of my thumb, but I am still excited!!!! (Pls, if you view, no thumbs down-- I am an amateur at this)
A friend of mine posted this to her Facebook feed... HILARIOUS!!!!! My friend Brandy who I work directly next to made a comment that she needed to have my phone to clean out my email box..... drives her bananas to have any unread emails or undeleted emails...... LOL !
Below is a screen shot of my phone today........I will be working on my email box this Sunday when I am off of work.... For now, I scroll and only reply to the Priority emails.
Corn in the garden is coming up..... the rest of the garden hasn't made much of a show..... hoping to see more thing poke through soon..... Garden Watch 2016 continues!
My friend, Jenny, surprised me with 3 of my favorite things!!! Gift certificate to a local running store, gift card to small cakes (the best cupcakes in town), and a gift card to Olive garden.... Clearly, this was way too much for what I did.... honestly, she really didn't need to get me a thing..... but, let me tell you, I am so glad she did!!! LOL! She is awesome!
Below is a picture of Jenny and I when we first started to run.....
This evening, my son and I saw this bunny right in our yard!!!! This is the closest I have been able to get to one!!!!!!!
Gotta run!!!!! Rest day tomorrow and then 5K on Saturday!!!! Worried about my speed.... not sure I am even able to get close to my PR, but my friend Brandy says we are!!!
