Tuesday Tangents

This weekend I spent most of my time like this...

And by "like this" I mean, I wore my nursing "hat" this weekend.  J had a little hernia surgery on Friday, so I got to play care taker and nurse him back to health.  I got a little stir crazy trying to take care of and entertain him, so I did some running and some baking.  Some for me....

PB Rice Krispie Bars
And some for my foodie pen pal :)

And some for scrap... major FAIL here!  I wanted them to be as fresh as possible for April my #foodiepenpal, which I thought would be ideal, but not so much when you have a little oopsies :(  I ended up just sending the chocolate chip protein cookie recipe to her, hopefully she'll be able to make them sometime and enjoy them....sorry again April! 

I was also lucky to receive my #foodiepenpals package yesterday...I love it when a FPP package comes in the mail!

Fitness Plan

I ended up running 20 miles last week, 12 of which came from the weekend, along with some weight lifting and other cross training.  Here is this weeks plan... 

Monday: Cross Fit + 15 minute bike 
Tuesday: Run 5-6 miles
Wednesday: Run 5-6 miles 
Thursday: Lift 
Friday: Long run? 
Saturday: Chasing two cute kids around 

Sunday: Long run? 

Monday's Cross Fit workout was:

20 DB lunges
5 DB presses
40 yard (down and back) sprint
15 box jumps

As many rounds as possible in 10:00 (I did 3.75... couldn't quite fit those box jumps in).  The lunges were really hard for me for some reason?? I'm feeling them today, which I like though!

Anyone have anything exciting happen over the weekend?

    1. He's doing much better...one more week until his wrap up apt with the doc, hopefully everything looks good.

  2. I think it's a great idea to send the dry ingredients for cookies - that's actually pretty smart in my book!

    1. Ya it's kind of nice to be able to make it at your own leisure :)
