Today’s post is going to be about a bunch of random things
First up, my workout.
- 3. 5 miles – outside
I think today was the first time I have ever ran outside in November in my life and the first time I have ran outside in a month. It was tough. The weather was about 50 degrees which was perfect. I started out a bit chilly but warmed up quickly.
The wind was the toughest part and my nose was runny the whole time. I ran 3.1 miles (with a couple of walk breaks) and then walked .4 miles. I haven’t been running lately and my hip still hurts so my time wasn’t the best.
I’m just trying to run outside a little more to be ready for the 5k on Thanksgiving!
A few weeks ago, Jaden and I went to Whole Foods and they had a few kid’s Halloween activities set up around the store. One activity was a photo booth with props.
If you took a picture and tagged it on Instagram, you were eligible to win a case of Kind bars. Well, I just found out today that Jaden’s picture was one of the lucky winners! Yay!
I go through phases with reading. Sometimes I’ll read a whole bunch of book in a row and then I’ll go a long time without reading anything.
I just finished reading Allegiant (from the Divergent series).
I thought the book was okay - I wasn’t really happy with the ending and thought there was so much time between books so I had a hard time remembering what had happened in the first two books. It’s a must read if you read the first two in the series, but overall slightly disappointing.
I am currently reading Ender’s Game (I seem to like young adult books if you can’t tell).
Ender’s Game is actually an old book from 1991. It was recently made into a movie that just came out. Jacob read it on his Kindle, so I decided to read it too. So far, it’s really good. It’s about a young boy who is sent away to Battle School to train for a war against an alien race.
It reminds me of another book I recently read where kids are sent away to train as soldiers and I just can’t remember the name of it!
Lunch this afternoon was an Amy’s gluten-free burrito. I also had some apple slices.
Ugly Sweater Coffee
While I was at Target, I came across this Ugly Sweater Crème Brulee coffee.
How fun is that? Last year, we had an ugly Christmas sweater party, and this coffee would have been perfect.
Have a wonderful afternoon!
