Disappearing Act

I disappeared for a few days, didn’t I?

That always seems to happen with me during the second half of the week.

Thursday evening, I had conferences after school from 3:00-5:30PM. By the time I left work and stopped at Subway for a quick dinner, it was apparent that no blogging would be happening.

Friday, I had a few quick errands to run after work. I’m attending a baby shower for Chris’s cousin today, so one of my stops was Babies “R” Us. I always feel completely lost in there! I usually try to pick out one item that’s the exact price I want to spend, or else I’ll get totally overwhelmed trying to pick out a few different things. Anyway, I made it out within 30 minutes which I think is a record for me.

I stopped at Saladworks to pick up something for dinner, since we really didn’t have much in the house. (And what we did have, I didn’t feel like eating.) I don’t eat at Saladworks frequently – they are way overpriced in my opinion! – but sometimes a few extra dollars is worth the convenience.

I spent the rest of my evening curled up on the couch with this little dude:

Stewie

Speaking of dogs…

We ended up not adopting Crosby. :-( Chris took Stewie to meet him on Thursday and didn’t feel 100% convinced that the two would be the best of friends. Stewie is very laid back and doesn’t even really pay attention to most other dogs. However, Crosby wanted to play (aw) and wouldn’t leave Stewie alone until Stewie barked at him.

It’s hard to tell if it would be the same once we got him home. After all, he’s all caged up at the shelter! Chris and I didn’t want to take the risk though. It wouldn’t be fair to either dog if things didn’t work out well. The good news is, I noticed his picture was taken off the animal rescue league website. I’m hoping this means he found a wonderful home!

Okay, back to the weekend…

Saturday morning I was supposed to run 6 miles. After Monday’s post, a few people suggested that the training plan seems to be increasing my mileage too drastically. So, while I hadn’t planned to necessarily run 6 miles, I still had the intentions of getting a run in on Saturday morning.

Then, I just didn’t feel like it. I understand that I’m training for a half marathon and I’ll have to run even when I don’t feel like it, especially once I get closer to the race. Yesterday, however, I wanted to go to spin, so that’s what I did. I thought about doing a quick run after, but I had stuff I wanted to get done so I just moved on with my life and promised myself I’d run a few times this coming week.

After spin class, I threw together a quick breakfast… a cranberry English muffin with a little bit of butter and jelly, a blueberry Chobani, and hazelnut coffee with foam made in my Keurig milk frother.

I need to work on my cinnamon sprinkling skills!

The rest of Saturday was spent doing a little cleaning, grocery shopping, going to church, and eating pizza… yum!

I also ate quite a few of these Pretzel Crisps. Look for these immediately; they’re delicious!

This morning, I was up bright and early at 6:00AM. Chris had to go in to work for 7:00AM today, so I told him I’d get up with him. Waking up early is 100% easier if you have company. Since we went to bed relatively early last night, it wasn’t that big of a deal.

After helping Chris get his lunch together and sending him off to work, I prepared some pumpkin chocolate chip baked oatmeal for myself.

Now, I’m about to jump in the shower and get ready for the… shower. Ha!

I’m not sure if I’ll get a chance to blog tomorrow; I have parent/teacher conferences from 8:00AM until 9:00PM… yikes! Of course, we have lunch and dinner breaks so I won’t truly be locked in my classroom for 13 hours.

Have a great Sunday!

Have you discovered any amazingly yummy products lately? Those Pretzel Crisps are to die for!!!

    so sorry you didn’t get crosby! this one time Eric and I were looking for another dog and went to the humane league… found one and fell in love and harleyyy and him didn’t get along at all… but it was the other way around! Harleyyy was to hyper for him! haha. When they told me that Hunter was a lap dog but still active we were sold and he actually annoyed harleyyy a little at first haha!

    My heavens, you have been one busy lady lately. I’m sure you can hardly wait for some relaxation come Thanksgiving. You deserve it that’s for sure :).

    I love that you listened to your body and decided to pass up on the run & head to spin class instead. I feel that’s so important. One weekend off from your training plan won’t do any harm.

    I love those cranberry English muffins! I couldn’t find them at the store yesterday, so I had to buy the cranberry bagels instead. They’re still pretty good!

    I missed a couple of my long runs because of shin splints and I was still able to complete my half marathon, so don’t feel bad for missing one, especially this early in your plan!
