The Past Few Weeks

December 17, 2013

Just when I got into the routine of updating my blog again, I got thrown off by Thanksgiving, traveling to Dallas for a long weekend, a snowstorm, and being busy from general Holiday stuff. So, what have I been up to?

1.I spent Thanksgiving at my Mom and Dad’s house with family. I indulged and ate way too much, but it was so good!

2.Tim and I went to Dallas for a long weekend the Friday after Thanksgiving. We visited my best friend, Katie, on Friday and had a second thanksgiving meal with her, her husband, and her family. We then spend Friday night-Monday morning with Tim’s parents. It was a nice, relaxing weekend. I may have partaken of too many “Corona-rita’s” on Saturday night, but I did manage to get a run in on Saturday morning.

3.The week after Thanksgiving, it was back to work. I had taken Monday off, so I was looking forward to a 4 day week. We had been hearing all week about the possibility of snow that week/weekend, but I was kind of reluctant. We haven’t had any good snow in Tulsa in a couple of years. This storm lived up to the forecast though. Snow started on Thursday (which meant we got to leave work at 2:00) and lasted into the morning on Friday. We ended up with about 5 inches of snow and a Snow Day off of work on Friday. I love snow, so I was definitely excited! Plus, it was fun to relax in my warm apartment for a few days.

4.I had friends over for a Holiday party on that Sunday. We ate Mexican food, played Cards Against Humanity, and got to visit a lot. We don’t get to all get together as much as we used to, so it was fun.

5.Last week was a full week of work and trying to get back into going to the gym and working out. Since the Half Marathon, I had only run once (3 miles when I was in Dallas) and hadn’t done much else. My first treadmill run last week wasn’t good (30 minutes at .5 mile run, .1 mile walk), but Saturday I did 3 miles with no walking breaks. It’s always an adjustment to switch from running outside to the treadmill for me. I get bored and I want to stop. I have also being doing push-up, sit-up, and squats using apps on my phone. And I got strength training in two days last week.

6.This weekend I finished up most of my Christmas shopping and went to a family Christmas party, which is always fun! I got to see some of my favorite Texas cousins and spend time with the rest of my family, including my nieces and nephew. I also made this fun Christmas Wreath Cake (It was marbled red, green, and white on the inside).

That pretty much catches you up on what I’ve been doing the past few weeks. I’m looking forward to this last week of work and then a week and a half off (the benefits of working for a University!).
