Fit After Little Bits

Tuesday Catch Up.

It is the end of Tuesday, already. Where did the last two days go?!

Weekend highlights:

  1. Ran 12 miles Saturday. Foot didn’t die.
  2. Ran 5 miles Sunday (3 tempo). Felt foot. Didn’t die.
  3. Started 27 projects around the house. Husband left me. I kid.*
  4. Raked for 2 hours prepping the ground for grass seed. May never stand up straight again.
  5. Monday came too soon.

*Dont worry, I will share the projects when they are completed 😉 Pulling out the bathroom vanity was maybe a little passive-aggressive. Good thing he loves me.

Does anyone else’s house look like this on Sunday afternoon? I feel like the only way we get things done is by letting Brooke make a disaster out of the rest of the house. Face palm.


We are still playing with our wacky weather here. Yesterday was spent working on some of the said projects and then hiding inside from some hail and rain.

Brooke and I took advantage of the pretty morning and put together our awesome patio umbrella. Less than an hour after this picture was taken, it started to hail. Perfect.


While it was storming, Brooke thought it would be a good idea to cover up the pup and read him some stories. Please excuse the leg, she had muddy pants on 😉


Hopped on the trainer for an hour in the afternoon before heading into town for a couple of errands and to pick up the husband. Something about not wanting to ride his bike home in a hail storm.

Today we had a bit nicer weather. Still a bit cloudy and cool, but not much rain.

We spent the morning working on some projects before heading out side for a bit. I got in an easy 3 mile run with Brooke and Jasper before hitting the trainer for an hour.

Brooke had control of my camera and here are a few gems from her shoot.

Wonder where she gets it.


Clearly she was going for an artsy shot of the clouds in the windows?


Bucket of rocks…our skills are about the same when it comes to picture taking.


Me in my super sexy attire. Thanks, B. Projecting!


I tend to opt out of the power and phone lines in my pics, but Brooke feels that they are important.


Everything is turning GREEN!!!

Spent the evening working on creating vanity counter templates and entering due dates for my upcoming classes. The thrills never end!

Time to go to bed so that I can wake up and enjoy what is supposed to be a 70 degree day tomorrow. Sunshine, here we come!!

Wacky Friday Weather

Happiest of Fridays!!! Pretty excited for the weekend over here. After our desert travels last weekend, I am excited to hang low at home this weekend and get some stuff done.

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Arches post. Highly recommend visiting that place! So awesome.

Yesterday our weather was pretty much terrible. Brooke and I had to be in town for her last ballet class. Where does time go?! This meant that we had to brave the horrifying road conditions. I can really not describe it. Imagine trying to drive a car through 10 inches of snow/mud combo where you really have little control over steering and stopping. Sounds pretty great, yeah? And then, you get to the paved road and the slush is so bad that it is about the same. Terrifying. But we made it!

B’s last ballet class was great. She had a blast with all her little friends. Afterwards, we did some errand running before popping over to the skating rink. Brooke took her first lesson yesterday (and it was her first time ever on skates!).


She LOVED it. Even with the falling 😉 Ski helmet and mittens FTW!


We made it home just slightly easier than the trip in and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out and cleaning up (and making banana bread!). I also managed to get out for a 4 mile tempo-ish run (8:23 pace including a bit of warm up and cool down in there).

This morning we woke up to some cool clouds and clue sky!



Winter in May. Mountain life.

We actually played outside for a lot of the morning. Shoveled the porch, put some stuff (my winter clothes! ha!) in the rafters and played in the snow. Afterwards, Brooke decided to get cozy on the floor with her stuffies. Rough.


Spent the day doing some random projects: cleaning the blinds, random laundry loads, puzzles, Ranger Rick reading, scrubbing the shower and who knows what else.

The afternoon looked like this….


Jasper and I took advantage and got out for a super easy 3 mile jog. (Currently icing foot).

Also random….yogurt making.


And snacking. Okay, not random. Necessary. Thanks, Errin for getting me hooked on the Costco pack 😉


Just add cheese…or two.


And just like that, it is bath time and clean up the house/figure out dinner time!! Hope that you have an incredible weekend!


Arches National Park

Okay, so this post really doesnt require words! How amazing is this place?

(Since we are in town today and not doing anything too exciting, I thought we could throw things back to Monday!)
