Hope your Tuesday is going well. We got into Coeur d’ Alene (my hometown) last night and we were all pretty tired from the drive so it was early to bed for us.
This morning we woke up to a beautiful dusting of snow this morning which I watched fall while sipping a chocolate shake for breakfast.
My good friend, Jaylene, came over this evening with 2 of her children. We enjoyed some pizza, Christmas movies and make some turkey cookies. You can find the recipe HERE! All of the recipes I originally found used candy corn for the feathers but I can’t stand candy corn. This one uses buttercream for the feathers instead.
Helene had a blast decorating her cookies and so did I! It was a little to complex for a 4 year old and her 2 year old was napping while we made the cookies but she did great.
Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology Shake (1 red)
Lunch– Chocolate Shakeolgy Smoothie Bowl (1 red)
Dinner – Spinach salad and small slice of homemade pizza (1 green, 1 yellow)
(too busy eating and hanging with the kids for dinner pictures)
Do you like candy corn?

A little late on this post. I like to recap these on Mondays but I had computer issues Sunday and then we left early to beat the storm that was predicted for the Northwest area.
Monday: 30 minutes on indoor bike trainer and Plyo Fix Extreme video
Tuesday: Rest day! Dog walk
Wednesday: 8 miles on the treadmill @ 9:15 average pace
Thursday: 6 miles on the treadmill @ 9:40 average pace
Friday: 6 miles on the treadmill @ 9:40 average pace
Saturday: 8 miles on the greenbelt @ 8:43 average pace
Sunday: 6 miles on the treadmill @ 9:48 average pace
Total Miles: 34 miles
Week in Review: Look at that total mileage! Proud of myself for that but I didn’t get in the strength training. It seems to be all or nothing in running and strength training which needs to be changed.
Strengths– Increased running mileage
Weaknesses– No strength training
Goals for Next Week – Well, we will be out of town for Thanksgiving and the weather will be cold. I will bring my 21 Day Fix Extreme videos and plan to do those plus get in some runs. There is a nice gym in town that I’ve never worked out at so maybe I will do a day pass there to get in a treadmill run, or two.
It’s Sunday, which meal planning and shopping. This week is a little different since right after this post goes up, we are off to my home town of Coeur d’ Alene, ID for the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m super excited because I love visiting my family and friends while staying at my in-laws condo. We tried not to buy too much last week so that we could use up the food we had before leaving home for a week.
We also packed up the car with a bunch of our spices and various other items for cooking the big meal so that we don’t have to buy that while there.
Using up what we had in the fridge, pantry and freezer went well with some planning last weekend for a great variety of meals that I’m sharing today!
Hope you had a good Saturday and start to the weekend.
Our Saturday started off with bagel sandwiches for breakfast then bundling up for a holiday parade downtown. I ended up with several layers since I planned to go for a run on the greenbelt after the parade.
The parade wasn’t as exciting as I hoped due to major lag time between floats and hardly any music. We decided to head out after an hour so that I could get my run in and Steve could go to school for a bit. Oh, and I can’t forget to share the donuts from Guru Donuts that we picked up on the way.
Yeah, yeah we just had breakfast before leaving the house but of course Steve had room for a donut. I couldn’t pass up a few more carbs before my run either. The one on the left was called “nap time” and the other one called “Turpumpkin.” They were tasty! I picked the pumpkin one of course and saved most of mine for after the run. Steve’s donut wasn’t so lucky…
It was a beautiful day in Boise for a run. I stopped a couple of times for pictures of the river. It was chilly out but I made sure to wear my clothes, ear warmer and vest so everything stayed warm except my toes.
Today was an early one for me! Steve had an early meeting and he dropped me off at the gym along the way. I ran 6 miles on the treadmill then sat in the wet sauna for about 10 minutes. I know, I mentioned that I was going to cancel my gym membership but sitting in the sauna felt so great! So now I’m debating on whether or not to cancel plus I NEED to start swimming again for triathlon training.
This evening we had a few friends over to watch the Boise State football game. We made chili and baked potatoes for dinner which is our favorite football watching dish. I even made mine with a sweet potato, yum! It was the perfect way to end the week except BSU’s defense seemed to MIA….ugh!
6 miles on the treadmill and 1 hour dog walk
Breakfast – 1/2 whole wheat bagel (1 yellow)
Lunch– Black Bean and Butternut Enchilada leftovers (1 yellow, 1/2 green)
