Lucky number 6!


Last night I went to bed late!


It could have been from this:


Yes, that is some coffee. I only had a half of a mug of half decaf/regular, too. It usually relaxes me but not last night!

Or it could have been that I wound up running 6 miles at nine last night!

Either way, I ended up catching up on blogs, watching Conan and Jimmy Fallon.

I did end up crossing more than half off of my list from yesterday, too! I still need to go over bills and take back library books. I feel very accomplished! =)

Breakfast was a lovely spread of eggs with asparagus and spinach, along with a half of a bagel.



I did quite of cleaning once J was taking his nap. I think I have finally figured out his sleep schedule! I wish kiddos came with instruction manuals – I swear it looks easy but really it’s rocket science!

Lunch was Amy’s soup with celery, crackers and hummus.



I had a lunch date with J!


Then we were off to run my errands and grocery shop.We didn’t arrive back home until 6 which is a lot later than I was hoping for. I knew I wanted to head to the gym so I ate fairly light.

I picked at some left over pasta that had green beans, zucchini, broccoli and spinach tossed with quinoa pasta shells, some pesto and tomato pasta sauce.


Marc was home at about 7:45 and I quickly headed to the gym. I bought new running pants yesterday from Target and I was excited to try them out. My go-to pair were getting too big and they kept falling down when I was running – I hate worrying about your clothes when you are running!

The verdict? Awesome! They have a high waste and are pretty snug so they stayed up great! I ran another 6 miles last night, too. I am really starting to fall in love with running. Now I just have to wait until it gets a tad warmer so I can start running outside. But running on a treadmill doesn’t bother me one bit. I hate hearing about runners getting hit – it really scares me! Plus, I just turn on the TV that is on the treadmill and zone out. But I know to increase my leg strength I am going to have to start running outdoors.

I know it is over 6 months away but I am getting very excited for my Half Marathon! I want to be in the best shape and feel confident going into it! But I must admit that after running 6 miles, which is my longest yet, 13 doesn’t see too bad. :crossing my fingers:

Well I am dropping off J with my mom today for a sleep over. Marc and I are going to the Nutcracker tonight and having a nice dinner out! I am very excited! I love the ballet! =)

Have a great day all!

  1. Just found your blog! I find it inspiring because I used to run 5-7 miles everyday up until after I got married over 3 years ago. Grad school got in the way, but now that I'm done (and put on 20 lbs), I'm ready to get back on the saddle. Love your blog! I have a food blog, and I can't wait to try some of your recipes :o) Happy New Year!

  2. I didn't know you were training for a 1/2 marathon, that's so exciting! I wish I could fall in love with running.. Have a wonderful time at the Nutcracker!

  3. Yay for your half marathon!! I'm excited for you too! I wouldn't want to run outside in the dark, but if you can get out there when it is light out, and it isn't raining, you should go! I've been running in -1 to 20 degree temps. As long as you are dressed for it, you'll be fine! Happy Running!

Share the love!
