Hi Everyone! How was your week? Mine flew by! I feel like I blinked and it was over! But, even though it was so quick, I have a lot to share and I need to check in with you on my POTM Week 3 progress! Here’s a recap of what I have been doing all week.
I woke up hungry Monday morning, and I was really craving a donut. I have really had an annoyingly persistent craving for one the last couple of weeks. Usually I will give in and eat just one to get it out of my system. So, I decided that I would just go get one. When I got to my favorite donut shop they were closed. I took this as a sign that I really should not have a donut, so I had a Bear Naked bar instead. Then I ate ground turkey and asparagus for lunch.
I took a rest day on Monday from running or walking. It was pouring rain all day! It started Sunday during the night and didn’t let up until sometime Tuesday night. Jake was really bored from having to be inside all day, and he would not leave my side!
Monday night I fixed some tomato soup and a grilled cheese for dinner. It was delicious!
So, Sunday night my dryer started making this awful squealing noise! Then, it started smoking! Jeremy tried to take some of the clothes out and let it sit and cool down for awhile, but it still made the noise. At one point it just completely quit running and wouldn’t come back on! So, a repair man came out on Monday and said that our dryer was finished! It needed a new motor, and for what that would cost, he could sell us a used one. So, we decided to get a used one to get us by until we get a new one. I have been wanting a new washer too, but the repair man looked at it and said nothing was wrong with it. Boo! But, at least I will be getting a brand new dryer soon! I’m excited about that.
When I woke up Tuesday, the sun was finally out.
I had some oatmeal for breakfast, and then ground turkey and asparagus for lunch. I went for a 3 mile walk, and saw this little guy.
I was surprised at how close he let me get. Then I took Jake for a walk.
I had to wear my rain boots and he got covered in mud!
Jeremy had a ball game Tuesday night, but I stayed home. I spent most of the evening sorting pecans. I finally got finished with all 77 pounds of them! And then for dinner I fixed some scrambled eggs and toast with a few slices of avocado.
Then I caught up on my DVR shows. I love the show Married at First Sight. I think it’s crazy that someone would actually do it, but I’m addicted to reality TV!
On Wednesday, a friend brought me some homemade potato soup for lunch. It was really good! Later in the afternoon, I had a really good 3 mile run!
I didn’t have any pain while I was running!
As soon as I was done I went home and iced my leg.
Jake went to get a bath, so I didn’t want to take him out in the mud, so we didn’t go for a walk. He didn’t mind though.
He is usually pretty tired when he gets home from the groomer. He doesn’t get to take a nap at all when he’s there. When Jeremy got home, he had 3 more bags of pecans to sort. 52 pounds! I had forgotten about these and was so excited when I finished the other ones. I did NOT want to sort these, but they were not in little pieces like the others, so they were much easier. We worked for a little while on them, and got a whole bunch done quickly!
Jeremy decided he wanted burritos for dinner and went and picked up everything while I was at work. So, I made chili cheese beef burritos.
It was very simple. I browned some hamburger meat and put taco seasoning in it. Then I warmed up a can of chili (without beans). I took two tortillas and filled them with beef and cheese then rolled them up and put them seam side down in a baking dish. I covered them with chili and cheese and baked them until the cheese melted. Then, I made some pumpkin bread. It was a quick bread in a box, but it was good. I think it would be really good with some cinnamon cream cheese on it! After dinner, we played with Jake and then we actually went to bed early.
Thursday morning I finally gave in to my craving and had a donut. I had a glazed croissant and it was amazing!! That got rid of my donut cravings for awhile. Then, I had ground turkey and asparagus for lunch.
Once I got home from work, I only had 45 minutes to fit in a run and shower. I did a quick 2 mile run, then showered and was ready to go. Jeremy and I met up with my dad at the gun range.
We needed to check mine and Jeremy’s rifles, since rifle season starts today! Check out my shots! I am pretty proud!
When we left there, we headed to a basketball game. I have stayed home all week, so I wanted to go with him since I would have some friends and family there.
After the game, we went home and I ate some cheerios and warmed Jeremy up some leftover burritos for dinner. I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow!
Friday was pretty uneventful! I ate the last of my ground turkey and asparagus for lunch. I got in a quick walk/jog before we left for another ballgame. My best friend was going to be there, and Jeremy’s refereeing partner’s wife was coming too. The games were awful, but we had a lot of fun hanging out!
We headed home after the games to get all of our hunting stuff ready! Rifle season starts today, and I’m ready! We got up at 4:45 am to get ready to go! I’m planning on a 3 mile run between hunts today.
