So that's what december is supposed to feel like

After our monsoon yesterday we were left with freezing weather for the near future. Well, not quite freezing, but in the 40s.  I've been so spoiled with most of November and December being in the 50s and 60s.  Very unusual for this part of the country.  I was obviously freezing all day because I'm always cold at work even if it's 90 degrees outside. I was ready to get warmed up after work. I headed to the gym on a run.  To run carefully. My foot has been behaving so I decided to give it a go.
this is my ready to run look hahah. I'm lame I know

I did a 10 minute warm up including a 2 minute run and then ran at a steady 6.0 with 1 minute sprints every 4 minutes until I hit 4 miles

It felt great! If there really is something wrong with my foot I need to find another way to cope with stress because running is the only thing that does it for me now. That and dark chocolate. I guess I could always try to get a little more into yoga, but in no way am I a flexible person.  When I got home I made a sald with spinach leaves, snap peas, carrots, celery, pineapple and tuna with a slice of great harvest dakota toast on the side.

Now I'm sitting down to watch some Lost on Netflix.  Matt and I have been watching for several months and we are finally nearing the end. We have about 15 episodes left.  It's such a good series but I heard the end is very dissapointing. We'll see.

Tomorrow's Friday! YAY!!


  1. That salad looks awesome - I like the pineapple idea! I LOVED Lost. I watched it start to finish. I wasn't necessarily disapointed with the ending. I know a lot of people said that though. Sounds like you're probably in the last season...SO GOOD! Enjoy!

  2. Yup we are in the last season. I think we'll be done by the end of the month. Then we're moving on to the new season of Dexter :)

  3. The ending is totally not disappointing (though I heard all the bad things too, so maybe low expectations?) I told Matt that for as much as could be said, they seemed to wrap everything up very nicely.

  4. That's good because I feel like we're not too far away from the end right now and I'm just as confused as ever lol.
