Let's see.... Friday night, well that's like any other work weekday as I am always exhausted from the week..so pretty much dinner and bed.
Saturday I cleaned house and spent time with Phene. We had this really cold bitter north wind blowing so we pretty much stayed inside. She was a little stir crazy, but all in all it was a good day. I did P90x yoga in the afternoon which was relaxing.
Saturday night we got a babysitter and headed over to a friend's house for game night. It was a lot of fun! We played Apples to Sour Apples, a variation of the game Apples to Apples. Great company, great food, and just all in all a really fun night! I would like to do these types of things more often....saves money, and really just a lot more fun then the usual stuff we do!
Sunday I "ran" on the elliptical completing the "Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K". Unfortunately I have no pictures of me in my elliptical glory....step...step....stepping myself to 3.1. It took me about 50 minutes....it sucked....and I wish I could have done this 5K on the road...oh well....it gave me something to work for and gave meaning to my endless stepping! (Thank you Adam)
Sunday afternoon we went to Chucky Cheese fopr Phene's first school birthday party. What a chaotic place to have a kids bday party! There were like 10 bdays going on and it was hard to get the kids from her class in one place to interact. Plus, she is the youngest in her class, so at almost 3 she is not quite up to speed with the other kids who are around 4 years old. We pretty much just separated off and let her ride the rides and run around. We won a few tickets and she got a whistle and some stickers. I have some GREAT pics I wanted to post of how much fun Phene had....but for some reason my memory card reader is not working today :( Hopefully I can get them downloaded soon!
For dinner I made an AMAZINGLY easy chicken parmesan. (Recipe from Pinterest) I love easy recipes, and I love cheese! Win, win! I also love the recipes on there! Here is a very poor picture of the leftovers I am eating today...
We watched a very good movie also called 50/50...very well acted, some sad parts, some funny parts, a great entertaining movie I recommend it!
So that was my weekend....now it's Monday and I am at work...boo.....
I ran 2 miles today...first time running after 10 days off. It was so so. My hips felt ok while running but my shin was hurting....not so bad I slowed down, but bad enough that I knew I shouldn't run farther. When I got back I did all my roll outs and hip exercises....so now sitting at my desk a few hours later I am feeling it a little...sucks....I will try to run another 2 later in the week.
Until then elliptical, yoga, elliptical, yoga...repeat....
