Naughty Kitty

While I was enjoying my morning coffee,AJ jumped up on the pool table to check out the tree. And eat on it! Grrr....

Fitness Friday: 12/2/16 Edition

Whew! I made it through another week. 5 days of working is tough when last week was a short week. I got all my runs in! Let's recap:

Friday: L and I went Black Friday shopping and then ran my mile. Gorgeous day out! 

Saturday: I tried to get L up but she wasn't interested. So I ran by myself. 

Sunday: this time I got L going. It was so windy outside! Luckily it was warm. We had fun!
Monday: bootcamp and a quick mile with Vanessa 

Tuesday: bootcamp. I ran my mile with my Bradley Fair friends. It was chilly! 

Wednesday: it was cold so I wimped out and ran my mile on the treadmill 

Thursday: 3.5 miles with my Moms a Run This Town friends! It was so nice to get in a longer run. Still cold!

WUW: Pilgrim Pacer 1/2 marathon

A couple weeks ago, three friends and I drove to KC Saturday afternoon to get ready to run the Pilgrim Pacer 1/2 marathon on Sunday, November 20. 
 Vanessa, me, Melanie and Mandy
 The day was beautiful! We had a fantastic time running. The course was paved trail and an out and back route. The leaves were gorgeous! Our friend, Deena, was running with us in spirit. 
 My time was 2:46:47. Not my best but since the end was 1 mile uphill and my 3rd 1/2 marathon in less than  2 months. 
And I had my best finish photo!!

Weekly Chase: Week 48

Okay folks. I know I've been MIA. Life gets busy, my remote blogger is fussy and so I put blogging to the side. I found a new blog app to use and I think it will work so I'm going to try and be more consistent.

Thanksgiving was busy. We went to see my grandparents. Grandpa is in rehab and doing pretty well 
 Then we headed to Burlington to see Jeff's parents. His dad is in rehab too. It was a long day. 

Friday, L and I got up early and went to the mall for Black Friday shopping. We had a good time and got each other gifts to give each other. 
 I spent Friday and Saturday cleaning, doing laundry and reading. Sunday was prep day. And it's back to work. Three weeks until Jeff and L are off again!

So here are my goals for this week:

1. Run every day. I'm on day 554 
2. Stretch and ice
3. Log my calories 
4. Work on Beck cognitive therapy 
5. Journal 
6. Read
7. Get Christmas decorations out
8. Make Christmas gift list out

Bean Bagging It

 So we are getting ready to sell our big bean bag chairs. They are stacked on top of each other. AJ says they should stay that way so she can sit on them and be a princess without Oreo hassling her!

The Bag Lady

So I walked out of the bathroom to find this:
I just about died laughing!  She's so funny. She will jump in a bag anywhere! 
Here's another:

She is patiently waiting for L to get out of the bathroom to go downstairs. I love AJ. She makes me laugh every day!
