SB took this photo from our living room window. It's a sweet photo. I just wish it was a fabrication. Yesterday when I drove home from work the temp reader in my car said 72 degrees. 72! And then this? Snow? Blehhh. I'm ready for flip flops, shorts, driving with the windows down, lying by the pool, and running in perfect temperatures. Is that too much to ask? Ups and downs like this can't be good for our mental health. Just give us warm weather already...for good. But, yeah I love the snow. (Lies)
I did snag a photo from one of the other bloggers of our blogger frozen yogurt meet up at Yogurtland yesterday. I can't remember who I stole it from...but thank you to whoever you are.
Ruth, Rachelle, Katie, Ashley, Janae, Julia, Stefanie, Micah
and us awkward squatters in the front...Holley, Moi, and Rochelle.
Aren't these girls beautiful? I know. Their blogs are all fantastic and super inspiring if you're looking for some good reads.
Beautiful girls who are rock star athletes, and the nicest people EVER. Yes, they do exist.
Talking to all of them made me miss running a lot. I haven't been able to run very consistently since I tore the tendons in my ankle/foot last October and although I've definitely made great friends with the spin bike/elliptical/stair climber, stepping off a 60 min session on the elliptical just doesn't give me the same mental satisfaction as thinking dang...I just did an 18 miler. It's weird how that all works out. My ankle is doing a LOT better. Now I'm just trying to work on fixing residual injuries that manifested themselves after the fact. The main problem lies mostly with my hip joint and piriformis. The piriformis is located in the back of the hip joint and passes through the pelvis, so when it gets inflamed...like it's been doing...it KILLS. I'm going to really try and focus on getting it alllll better, so I'll be back to my same old running self again. I don't like feeling like a 90 year old grandma that limps. (Not that I have anything against limping grandmas, bless their hearts.)
I am super excited about my goals for the upcoming week, and getting back in gear. Sometimes, you just need a bit of a not-so-great week to revamp yourself mentally and get back in it.
Sunday afternoon sweet tooth anyone?
or these Low Fat Peanut Butter Cookies
All healthy. All delicious. All tasty. Of course. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and get ready for a new AWESOME week!
Are you receiving crazy town weather as well? Or are you going to make me jealous and tell me it's 85 degrees and sunny where you're at? If you do you are risking my showing up on your doorstep in my swimsuit. Just saying. Which workouts satisfy you the most mentally? I would say running, the stairs, & DEFINITELY circuits. They kill me. I love them.
