Thirteen Things Thursday

I woke up today thinking it was Friday. I was thinking about what I could add to my "Five Things Friday" post...Then I realized it was Thursday.

So here's my Thirteen Things Thursday!

1. I'm so excited my first race of the year is in Saturday! It's a virtual 5k and I really hope my IT band cooperates!

2. I'm really enjoying fresh juices right at home. I've been getting pretty daring with the fruits and veggies I put in. This morning I had a handful of kale, one celery stalk, one orange, one green apple, two carrots and a teaspoon of chia seeds. Tasted great!

3. Since I can't run much I've been finding other things to do. I went on a walk with Kate on the canal. We went just over a mile. I didn't want to have to carry a tired 5 year old back home if we went too far. She wanted to run a few times but mostly stopped and threw rocks. It was a nice change.

4. I can't believe they made a book out of this song. If you haven't heard "What Does The Fox Say?" Then you're very fortunate. But if you're curious then look it up on YouTube.

5. I thought I'd take a swing at creating my own workout since I've been cross training for a while now, thanks to my injury. I've done plenty of different exercises to throw some together for the dreaded: Leg Day.
I warmed up with 20 Jumping Jacks, some IT band exercises (side steps w/band & clamshells). 
Psst, Ashley...I kinda copied how you post your workouts. I hope that's ok! 

I honestly did 100 scissors. No joke. :-)

6. My all time favorite apples are fuji apples. Sweet, crisp, and just a tad bit tart.

7. Bacon and avacado were meant to go together.

8. Crockpot meals are the best.

9. This girl owns half my heart. (The other half belongs to her brother)
She fell asleep sitting up on a pillow.

10. Frozen yogurt is our favorite dessert these days.

11. I'm a little worried about needing to walk tomorrow after today's workout.

That's my girl! Running shoes with her girlie outfit. Always ready to run!

13. And last but not least! It's past my bedtime so goodnight! Sleep is our friend. 

How was your Thursday?

  1. haha that's completely okay! And I can not believe they made a book out of that song either! goodness I need to make millions on a hit weird song. time to start brain storming!

    1. Knowing that those guys are comedians and that song was meant to make people think, were they serious? Or joking? Makes the song pretty funny and super catchy and you can't help but dance a little when it's on...but yeah, I feel the same about rap songs..just about anyone can make a song with a new word and it's "cool".

  2. Good luck on the virtual 5k! I had a busy Thursday at work and a not so good run, so I'm loving that it's a new day :)

    1. Thanks! Yes! It is a new day and anything is possible!


I enjoy hearing from everyone so please, leave a comment!
