Hi Everyone! It’s been a really busy week. But, I guess it always is right before Christmas! This week did go by fast, but it was a very stressful week. This was basketball tournament week around our area. So, that meant that Jeremy had games every day and night this week. Some days he did 6 games a day. It’s just hard when he is gone when I get home from work, and then I am asleep when he gets home at night. I feel like I saw him for about 30 minutes total this week. So, here is what my week looked like.
I did a picture post about my Monday. (You can see it here.) It was a rest day from running. So, I took a rest day from running and everything else! I took Jake for a long walk, and then we hung out being lazy.
I was really hungry after our walk, so I made an omelet egg scramble with bacon and cheese, with a side of toast and hash browns. Then, I relaxed and got caught up on Married at First Sight: The First Year. I love reality TV!
Tuesday morning I fixed some oatmeal for breakfast. I was out of the instant packets I have been eating, so I made regular oatmeal with some brown sugar and dried cranberries. For lunch I had another Smart Ones Chicken Parmesan. That is probably my favorite right now. Tuesday afternoon I was getting ready to take Jake for a walk and when we went outside, the most random thing was in our yard!!
A potbelly pig! I have begged Jeremy for a long time to get me one of these, but after seeing it, I think I have changed my mind. It was cute, and really friendly. But, it was weird. Jake loved it!
It came right up to him and was wagging it’s tail. It walked all over our yard, and Jake just followed it. I put Jake in the backyard, and the pig went to the fence trying to get in with him. I got some corn and led it back down to the house that I think it lives at, and once it ate the corn, it came running back to our house.
When the pig finally went home, Jake and I went for a walk.
He got mad because when we got to the other side of the pasture, he could see all the puppies down the road, but they wouldn’t come to see him.
After I walked Jake, I went for a run. I ran 3 miles. Then I went home and ate a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, with a side of hash browns. I am really liking hash browns lately.
Wednesday morning I fixed some oatmeal with a stevia packet and some mini chocolate chips in it. And for lunch I finally tried the Fit and Active lasagna meal from Aldi. It was not good! It tasted as bad as it looks! So not worth 97 cents. I will not be eating this again.
Wednesday afternoon I ran a bunch of errands. We had a new store open up in our town that sells name brand products that have been damaged or are dirty and can’t be sold in stores. Jeremy wanted me to go by there because he heard they had a bunch of hunting stuff. I went it, and it really stressed me out. There were folding tables set up all over the building, and the tables had boxes on them overflowing with stuff. None of it was organized or sorted. It was kind of overwhelming. I walked around for about 10 minutes and left. I was on a mission to try and find Jeremy a new shirt to wear to his family Christmas next Saturday. I went to the two stores in town that sell men’s clothing, but neither had anything he would wear. One of them sells clothes for older men, and then we have a Rue 21, and he won’t wear anything in there. I did not find him any shirts.
When I got home Wednesday afternoon, I ran 3 miles. Then I took Jake for a walk.
This time a couple of the puppies came through the fence and played with him. He loved it! We really need to get him a friend.
I was planning on cooking dinner Wednesday night, but Jeremy had done 6 games that day and he ate at the gym. Since he wasn’t hungry, I fixed me a grilled cheese and turkey sandwich. Then I curled up in bed to play on Pinterest, but I fell asleep!
Thursday morning when I woke up, I literally rolled out of the bed. My body felt like I had been run over. It hurt so bad everywhere. My back was hurting, and the pain was going down through my hips and into my legs. I hurt my back a couple of years ago, and every now and then it bothers me. It usually doesn’t last long, and it isn’t very bad. On top of that, my foot was hurting as well. I took some ibuprofen and did some stretches that usually help my back. I happened to look out the window while I was getting ready, and the sunrise was beautiful. I immediately went outside to take a picture. The pinks and purples were absolutely gorgeous!
I was hoping that by later in the day, my body would quit hurting and I could run. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. I hurt bad all day, so I decided that instead of running and risking getting hurt, I would take a rest day and hopefully it would make me feel better.
Since I wasn’t running, I went with Jeremy’s dad to Jeremy’s basketball games. It was a tournament, and his games didn’t start until 7:30.
I didn’t have time to eat before we left, and I knew I wouldn’t eat when we got home because it would be so late. I don’t like concession stand junk, so I had a couple of chocolate chip cookies instead. 😉 (I’m sure that’s not much better.) They were baking them fresh in the lobby, and they smelled heavenly! My father-in-law went to get us some, and he came back with 8 cookies! There were delicious, but I stopped at 2. We got home close to 11, and I went straight to bed. I was tired, but couldn’t wind down, so I watched the new episode of Big Bang Theory and then I went to sleep.
I must have slept hard last night because when I woke up today I felt refreshed. I wasn’t tired at all, and my body didn’t hurt! I fixed some oatmeal with dried cranberries for breakfast.
Then for lunch I had the alfredo meal from Aldi. It was pretty good. I also had a small piece of strawberry cake at work.
While I was eating lunch, my friend texted me and asked if I wanted to go shopping with her tomorrow. Of course I said yes! She is the one we had the baby shower for last weekend. She needs to go pick up some more baby stuff and get some Christmas shopping done. While I was talking to her, I realized that I forgot her birthday. It was Tuesday!! I am the worst! I feel awful! So, we will celebrate with a girl’s day tomorrow!
I spent all afternoon making lists of stuff I need to do, and groceries I need to buy before next week. I was starting to feel a little stress, but I felt better after I made my to do lists. I will get a bunch of it taken care of tomorrow when my friend and I go shopping.
I had a good run today. I finished just before dark.
Then , Jake and I went for a walk. The sunset was beautiful!
I was starving after my run, so I fixed some eggs, bacon, toast, and hash browns.
I ate every bit of it! And now I’m just talking to you nice people and trying to find something on TV to watch. I think I need to get Netflix!
I have a busy weekend planned with shopping and hanging out. And, I am looking forward to sleeping in on Sunday!
What are you doing this weekend?
