Hey y’all! I had a lot of questions earlier this week about what I am doing to get in shape, so here it goes! I am not a hardcore dieter or workout fanatic, but I like to go at a steady pace and still enjoy myself with food and fun!
H is for Hectic and Holiday! How can Christmas be a week away?! If you want to avoid the mall and long lines this week, but you’re still in need of a few last minute gifts, use your slow cooker silly! These desserts require easy-prep and make a ton in a short amount of time. Now that’s what we’re talkin’ about! Just wrap them up in festive bags or tins and your list is done!
Since the first Saturday in September I have run a 5K every Weekend, and I am signed up to do another this week (September 22). I have always love to run… starting in Jr. High, my love for Cross Country began and I ran competitively into High School. After you are no longer in “school sports” you have to find other ways to exercise and challenge yourself so I have always liked doing 5Ks. Stanton (my husband) was also a runner and so this is something we like to do together- although I can’t keep up with him, lol!
After I had Spencer I started training when he was about 8 months old to run a 1/2 marathon. I have always only ran the 5Ks which are 3.1 miles, and I had finished one 10K (just over 6 miles) but when he was almost 11 months old (May 2010) I ran my first 1/2 Marathon (13.1 miles). I would LOVE to be able to train for another one, but with 2 kiddos and now having a crazy schedule to top things off, it is something that I have on the back burner. It takes a lot of time and dedication to train for one but it is definitely on my bucket list!
