It was a Holiday...

So it was a holiday weekend and I still worked out in all the ways possible..
Thursday I did a 5 mile Turkey Trot
Turkey Trot

My finish time 1:01...not to shabby for 5 miles and dodging dog poo...yes dog poo...
Comn people if you run with your dog pick up the damn crap. Bugger
It was super warm and I overdressed but live and learn I guess.

Then I came home and straighten the whole house because call me crazy but we had my husbands family over for dinner that night. Only 14 people...yes thats not even the whole crew and that's just immediate peeps. Yes a crapload of people.
Anyways, I got everything ready includeing the turkey and I even had minute to take a snooze...The turkey turned out funaminal!!! I rock I know you're jealous!

Friday was a semi-rest day here. I ran and got the Turkey from my dad's to make for Saturday and then cleaned around the house and worked on some crafty stuff I'll post those when I get done with them:)

Saturday I went for a 3 mile short run. Alittle chilly temps being 25 degrees but it felt like 17...brrrr....but 3 miles done in 37 min. Take that cold weather!!
Made the turkey got the house re-straighten.. I have 3 kids I straighten alot!

My dad and his girlfriend and the siblings and significant others. And ended the night with a viewing of

 Love that movie...

Sunday wrapped up Thanksgiving Celebration #3...holy hell I was sick of turkey and mashed potatoes but why not add alittle more to end the season with a bang.
Sunday it was at my mom's with my mom and step-dad and siblings and significant others.
We had lots of food and more pie and bars than we could stand.
I feel like the michilian man but I will work off the dreaded weight gain of only...drum roll please 1.5 lbs. Not to bad considering I ate my weight in mashed potatoes and those dang things wreck havioc on my body....NOW back to the grind...

Run scheduled tonight with my girl hide-a-key!!!

How was your turkey day?

Tuesday, November 20, 2012's freezing out!!!

I live in WI. So our winters are f'n cold! No joke. Now it's not winter yet but it still can get cold..
Exhibit A:
Yep..and it was only November...imagine..Jan-March...brrr...I get nip on's just thinkging about it. Ha!
So I look like this when I run..please excuse the acne prone and makeup less face. I work from home so I only wear make-up when I actually do something besides sweat:)
Is that glorious...and excuse the open toliet. I didn't notice that till just now..gaa.
Anyways so running in WI can be tricky..We have to deal with snow, ice, freezing temps but it makes our skin thicker..ha!!!

There's a saying here if you don't like the weather today than wait till tomorrow because the weather changes so dramatically...take notice of
Exibit B
So anyways..back to run drama.
I'm loving it and I'm going faster and not hurting so much when I'm done.
Last night was my best run time ever....12:15 min pile per Nike+, or 11:32 min mile per SmoothRun...Whateve...I'm still doing better and walking much less than before.

This Thursday I have a 5 miles Turkey Trot that I'm doing.

I'm super excited. Until then..
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Yikes..I'm a slacker...

So it's been I'm not even sure where October went except that it went by fast.
I've been running like a mother and have signed up for the annual Turkey Trot. It's 5 miles ans I'm stoked. It's on Thanksgiving day. So I'll be up and getting my 5 miles in and then back home to cook for the whole family all 22 of us on my husbands side. Woohooo..doesn't that sound like a blast. Hee hee..Big Thumbs up..stellar!!!

I'm battling a lovely cold that has me hacking up like a smoker that's trying to quite. Awesome!!
But I'm back on the pavement stomping away and getting my miles in. I love it.

What I'm not loving is my plateau...grrr...I'm down 30 lbs but I just can't get passed it and it's seriously pissing me off. I run and run and run...oh well I'll get there eventually.
Well off to get some more things down. I promise to post more soon:0
