Last night after I finished my post, JJ said he wanted to go to a movie. I was half asleep, but agreed because we had been meaning to go see Sherlock Holmes. I told him we'd have to stop at Starbucks first if there was any way I'd make it through the movie. So I got a grande Soy Misto (half coffee, half foamy milk). I chugged it by the time we got to the movies, and we went to go buy our tickets. However, when we got to the booth, there was a sign that said they were experiencing audio problems with Sherlock Holmes! Ugh. So we looked to see if any other movies were playing at 9:30, but the next movie times we were remotely interested in seeing weren't until 10:30, and that was just too late.
So we went home.
I was worried I'd be up all night because of the coffee, but as soon as we got home at 10, I climbed into bed and passed out. I think the run and being a little sick left me exhausted!
This morning I woke up around 7, but stayed in bed until 7:45 and snuggled with the dogs. Then I set out on my run. It was ok, my knee was getting really sore, I think it's because I've got new shoes and they're not worn in yet. However, tomorrow will just be strength training, and I'm not running again until Thursday.
I took 2 walk breaks, one was to cough and spit...ew. One was to rest my knee for a minute and stretch it out. My time was ok, not the best, not awful. I am now a level orange on Nike+, but if my other runs that it didn't pick up had been counted, I'd have 12 more miles registered! Oh well.
JJ had to work early this morning, so I was on my own going to church. Today's forecast was 75 and sunny, so I put on my most favorite dress and new shoes I got for Christmas! The dress is getting way to big on me now though! Oh well, I'll have to find a new dress. JJ took a photo, but Pumpkin was a little spastic because I was leaving. Look at that air!
I sat down to take a picture with all 3 girls, and they trampled me! JJ got a shot of the little ones pulling my dress up, and I freaked out. But then when I looked at it closer, I was like wait a second... my legs actually look kinda good! I have always hated my legs, my theighs tend to hold a lot of my weight, so I never wear anything remotely short (including shorts).... but after seeing this photo, I can tell that running is actually making a difference on my legs! (Sorry if this super white-legged photo grosses anyone out... haha)
After church, I headed over to my farmer's market. It was gorgeous! I love going there every Sunday.
I came home with some cherries, peppers, plums, lemons and asparagus for ten bucks!
The farmer's market is in the parking lot of Whole Foods, so I ran in there to get something to make for lunch. I found this new kind of tofu, and decided to make a chopped slaw salad. The tofu had a great pineapple and ginger flavor to it, so I made a salad with slaw, cucumber, tomatoes, almonds, pineapple, tofu and ginger soy dressing.
The rest of my day was spent cleaning, making cupcakes for a coworker, making dinner, cutting out coupons and now JJ and I are going to eat dinner and watch football.
Overall it was a great weekend, I got so much done, got in 2 great runs, and also spent lots of time relaxing and hanging out with the dogs and hubs!
