Three Things Thursday #5

1. Deployments suck. I've tried not to be whiny or complain, but it really sucks. I miss my husband. My kids miss their dad. Hell, even the dogs are bummed.

2. My mom ordered me a pair of Uggs for an early birthday present. I can't wait to wear them with sweatpants!

3. Laithe is on spring break in St Louis with my parents & sister. Kai is nuts without him. He's a nightmare! Lesson learned, do not seperate them!

Favorite workout of the week:  7 mile run with Celia.  We had to slow ourselves down several times and we were able to talk throughout the entire run!

Least favorite workout of the week: St. Pat's Day 5k- although the course if completely flat, it was a killer.  I haven't done any speedwork since marathon training in the fall.  Definitely a wake up that I need to include it in my workouts; it should be 10% of my weekly mileage so really only 2-3 miles a week.  As I was running I kept thinking how much I love the half marathon distance because you don't have to run fast!  ;)

Three Things Thursday #4

Three things I'm loving these week are:
1. New running shoes + cookies & cream Quest bars!

2. The Yogify App! It's fantastic if you need a led yoga class but can't make it to the studio!

3. The blog Chocolate Covered Katie, my friend brought me sloppy joe lentils using one of her recipes and they were fantastic! There are so many delicious dessert recipes, I don't even know where to start!

Three Things Thursday #3

1. Laithe started gymnastics last night & he loved every second of it. As soon as we got home he was trying to do handstands against the wall! 

2. I've finally finished the books in Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad series & I cannot wait for the next one! I'm so glad that the QC Book Club selected The Likeness a few months ago!

3. I've been digging overnight oats for my nighttime snack with this pb-
It's amazing, I could eat the entire jar! I typically have 3-4 different kinds of pb on hand, what's your favorite?

Shoulder & Arm Workout

Cecelia & I completed this workout this morning at the gym.  It was a beast, but a nice break from the 1000 rep workouts we've been doing! I wrote it up this morning combining some of our favorite exercises over the past few weeks  (burpees!!!) and then created this image using PicMonkey.

We know we looked like bad asses because everyone in the gym kept commenting on how hard we were working!  :)
