Good Morning lovelies!! I hope you’re all having a good week. It’s time for my weekly “brain dump” post, as I like to think about it. This is a great link up, because it’s not about a particular subject! Linking up today as always with Amanda from Running with Spoons.
Vacation Bible School was last week and it was a blast! We haven’t been able to have VBS for the past few years at our church. It was so rewarding to have it again. So nice to see so many little ones having fun (oh and the youth group kids too, I think they had more fun than the littles!) Here’s the video I made of highlights. As the “official” photographer for the church, I also do photos all week long and then make a video we can show at church that Sunday.
Workouts. I’ve started PiYo this week from BeachBody (I bought mine on Amazon though for wayyyy cheaper!) and I love it! I woke up this morning and I am SO SORE. It’s a good sore though! I love being sore from working out! I also started Half Marathon training for HM #5 this week. Started out slow with 3 miles on Tuesday. However, it was the HOTTEST 3 miles I have done in a long time. It’s been soooo hot in Iowa! So needless to say I walked most of those 3 miles. I did go out and get the miles in, so that has to account for something!
On Tuesday when I got home from work I had some breaded chicken patties left over from a late night movie night with my son, so I turned it into a healthy meal by chopping it up and putting it on a bed of spinach with walnuts, raisins and ranch dressing. It was so good!
This week I was also accepted into the FitFluential Ambassador program which I was so pumped about! I love their website and blog posts and stuff! I’d also been wanting this for so long. I can’t wait to jump in and see all what is offered to the Ambassadors!
Tuesday was my hubby’s birthday! He’s 71 now, I call him my old man *snicker*. Anyway, we got invited to a friend’s house to watch a movie that night so I stopped by HyVee after work and picked up ice cream and a cheesecake and dropped it off at their house on the way home so it would be a surprise! So we had chili there and then had the cake/ice cream. It was a lot of fun. After the meal we all watched “Zootopia” I hadn’t seen it before, what a cute movie!
We are so blessed to be friends with so many wonderful families because of our church. The Tse (pronounced CHAY) Family are just super sweet! My daughter is really good friends with the 3 oldest daughters. In fact, we went to the mall together yesterday, with some of the other teen girls from the church and had a really good time. I didn’t take any photos other than what I added to snapchat, so you can add me if you want to, I love SnapChat!
Today I have a 3 mile run planned and other PiYo workout. I am seriously considering going to Planet Fitness to use the treadmill, since it’s so terribly hot out and the humidity is so high. It just makes it really hard to be outside for very long. I seriously love running in the winter better!! I never thought I’d say that, but after running outside all winter long for the past 2 winters, it’s TRUE!!! I just cannot stand the humidity!
Well, I’m outta here, I need to get moving so I can get all my stuff done that I need to get done. I am going to sit with a friend who’s in the hospital for a while, then go to Costco and do our monthly shopping trip. We need a ton of food, it’s amazing how much we consume in a month! It’s crazy having 2 teenagers in the house!
