Today started a little slow. I was a bit unmotivated to hit the pavement for my 5 mile training run. Sometimes getting on my shoes is the hardest part but as many runners will tell you.. you never regret a run that you have done; only the one’s you haven’t. So I complained on twitter and then got my butt up off the couch and got ready.
The first 2 miles were great and then it got hard. Real hard. I was crampy, tired and my legs felt SO heavy. BUT it was BEAUTIFUL out. I’m so glad I got out there to enjoy it.
After the run the little guy and I BLASTED the radio and danced around while cleaning up. We made a new dance around the house mix. When I have a bit more time I’ll post it. It’s super fun.
After the house was sufficiently straightened up (because let’s be honest, it’s never really clean) I put the little guy to work on FitBloggin‘.
Call me a slave driver.. go ahead. It’s better then plopping him in front of cartoon network, no? Plus in our house everything’s a learning opportunity. He counted bags and asked lots of questions, it was great Mother/Son time. :)
We actually got a lot accomplished. Each one of these bags represents a person coming to FitBloggin’10.
How cool is that! Notice the 4 year old in the middle. ;)
We worked up a big appetite from our productive morning so it was time for lunch. I whipped up something new for me, Quick Bulgur Chili and sandwiches for the boys.
Afterwards we decided to take advantage the beautiful day and hit the Driving Range.
Look at how stinkin’ cute a 4 year old is with a set of golf clubs is.
And look at those pants on him! We just bought them, he’s growing like a weed! A really “cool” weed but a weed all the same…
Here’s the hubz and I. I usually go makeup-less on Sunday’s so no wise cracks.
After the driving range we hit the grocery store and I’m happy to say that the husband WAS affected by Food, Inc.. He was ACTUALLY reading nutritional labels and he limited his processed snack purchases. I was shocked! Seriously.
Once we got home the groceries went away and we enjoyed the crock-pot meal I put on earlier knowing I would have desire to cook after our busy day. I made top sirloin similar to this paired with my creamy mashed potatoes and a salad with lite dressing.
Post dinner we played a bit in the basement, watched a Scooby movie and put the little guy to bed. Lunches are made, the kitchen is cleaned and the last thing I need to do is pack my gym bag for tomorrow morning. I have to sleep in my workout clothes or I’ll never get my butt out the door.
So I’m off. I’ll probably fall asleep on the couch with the husband watching the Oscars. That’s my favorite way to end a Sensational Sunday. The falling asleep on the husband part, not the Oscars part. ;)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
