Happy Friday the 13th Everyone!
I just love myself a Friday the 13th, don’t you? It makes the day seem far more exciting! That and the fact that it is a December Friday the 13th. That means Holidays galore! I come to you while watching the Griswald’s Christmas and it is just swell!
Time for Five Things Friday!
First, Week Two of My Christmas Baking Bucket List
Last week, the Ultimate Ginger Cookie, this week, Champagne Truffles!
Second, Nick Symmond’s Book Deal!
Last week, I confessed my obsession with Nick Symmonds. This week, the professional runner announced he has signed a book deal!
Third, Balsamic Summer Chicken Bake
Yes, I realize it is -December, however, I also realize that this week has left me with about five minutes to prepare dinner each night. This recipe which I cannot wait to share with you next week is the best of both worlds, a super speedy one dish meal, and comforting warm home made dish on a cold rainy night!
Fourth, My Family Comes Next Week!
Reason #439285 I am the luckiest girl on earth! Since all of our extended family lives where I do, my immediate family lives near me. That means my parents and siblings usually come up from Florida for the holidays! Going to work next week will be a lot more exciting, knowing my mom will be cooking me dinner
Finally, The Week In Fitness
Friday: 6 miles easy @ 8:20, abs
No excuse here, I just wanted to sleep.
Wednesday: 3 mile walk
Wednesdays are usually my off day, but I woke up straight from a dream about running (I know, weird) and was super excited to run!….. At least until I started actually running. Can you say lactic acid build up? I settled for a nice relaxing walk instead.
Tuesday: 7 miles @ 8:19
Monday: 7 miles 2@ 8:20, 2 @ 7:41, 1/2 @ 8:20, 2 1/2 @ 7:41
Sunday: 60 minutes elliptical, abs
Saturday: 60 minutes elliptical, Body Pump
