Friday Favorites & The Rest of My Week

Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday! 

Today I wanted to share some of my favorites from this week.  (Read: things I’m currently obsessed with)

But, before we get to that, let’s talk about how the rest of my week has gone….

Wednesday morning I woke up with a bad headache that lingered all day long.  My sickness (I’m not sure what it was) was still hanging on.  But, I made it through the day without feeling like I needed to sleep.  I had an English muffin for breakfast with low sugar jelly.

I had a lunch meeting, and a girl I work with brought chicken strips.  I ate two chicken strips and some 100 calorie pretzels.  When I got home from work, I ate a banana and got ready to run.  It was very chilly that afternoon, so I decided to run on the treadmill so I could stay out of the cold.  I ran 6 miles on the treadmill.  I had a pretty fast pace, but I did have to stop a couple of times to use my inhaler.  This run was a struggle and not enjoyable.  I still didn’t feel very good, and once I started running, my body was tired and my legs ached.  I almost wanted to quit a couple of times, but I pushed through and got it done.  I think I ran a little faster because I kept telling myself, “the faster you run, the faster you’re done.”

After finishing my run, I went in to get dinner ready.  By this time, I was feeling bad again.  I was really tired.  Jeremy helped me with dinner, and we made homemade hamburgers.  I was super hungry after running, and I probably could have eaten two of them…but I didn’t.  I didn’t take any pictures because I was so tired that I just wanted to eat and go to bed!  And, that’s what I did. 

When I woke up yesterday morning, I felt 100 percent better!  I could finally breathe and I didn’t have any headache or body aches.  And, I wasn’t tired!  I fixed an English muffin for breakfast with low sugar jelly and headed to work.  For lunch I grabbed some yogurt and a banana.  Then I had some turkey snack sticks for an afternoon snack.

When I got off work, I had a hair appointment.  My hair has gotten so light lately, so I decided that I needed to get it fixed.

And, I feel back to normal!  It’s amazing what a hair appointment can do!

When I got home, I took Jake for a walk.  The weather was so nice.  It was 65 outside!  Jake walked for almost an hour before he got tired.

After our walk, it was almost dark, so I ran my 3 miles on the treadmill.  I also did some squats and some light lifting and foam rolling.   

Then I fixed some dinner.  Jeremy had games last night, so it was just me and Jake.  I fixed scrambled eggs, bacon, and an English muffin.

Then I relaxed and watched some TV. 

Now, on to my Friday Favorites. 

  1. English muffins – I’m sure you could probably tell from my recap of what I ate the last couple of days that this is something that I am eating a lot of right now.  I have always liked these, I just go through phases on what type of bread I eat and right now I’m loving them!  Friday Favorites and the rest of my week new blog post run and live happy (7)
