you gotta Just Do It. Thanks Nike for that! It’s kinda my go to thought when things are so busy/hard/overwhelming!
I obviously have been a little lazy about updating and when I did try the other day I had technical issues which was highly annoying! All seems to be working now so let’s get to it!
FUN STUFF RECAP – I had a GREAT visit from my mom! She came out and we did fun stuff like go to lunch, shop, get a pedicure and see a movie (American Hustle). We also watched the Oscars in entirety which I have not done in ……….maybe forever. It was a blast!
The pedicure felt AMAZING – I had not had one in awhile and was really looking forward to it. It was also timely since we are going on spring break and it will be nice to have somewhat pretty toes.
We also ate out for lunch a lot while mom was here – it’s what we do! I actually didn’t find it too challenging to eat vegan. I did a quick search before heading out once or twice and picked up some good ideas! Someone somewhere online noted that Red Robin had Vegan patties and you could substitute that for chicken on the salad and omit cheese. Did that and the result was so good I had to Instagram it!
We did some shopping at Pandora and a few other places in the mall. Thought about these shoes but then I thought they might make me too tall……….
……..But maybe since mom is tall I could wear them when we go out together…….
We just really enjoyed hanging out together. I still managed to get my workouts in but tried to not get too caught up in other day to day stuff since we so rarely have this “girl time”.
Workouts have been almost 100% on! I’ve been aiming to get one session in EARLY in the morning – like wake up at 5 early. This really helps it seem like the training isn’t cutting too much in to other things. When mom was here I did a few rides on the trainer while we watched TV together and chatted. Gotta multi task! I’ve also enjoyed being able to get some outdoor runs in. I’m hoping we can ride outside on spring break as we are taking bikes with us. I bought clip on Aero bars today and don’t think practicing with them while on the trainer will be overly helpful…….and as we all know I’m terribly klutzy and need to get familiar with those prior to racing.
Speaking of training/racing I don’t know how I will EVER be able to train for a full Ironman but it is still on my radar. Maybe after the move when I’m not worrying about selling/buying a house it will be easier but I don’t know. Plus how can anyone ride that long? My rear hurts just thinking about it!
Speaking of moving look at the pretty faucets Tony installed this weekend. HGTV has taught me that it is important to get rid of ugly brass fixtures.
Well that’s all I got for now! Actually, not really but I have to go pick up Athena from her horse lesson and go hit the pool for my swim……………..like I said, OVERwhelmed! But I’m going to JUST DO IT!
