Friday Fillers: Creative Scheduling

  • Ran 2.5 miles in 29:56 minutes this morning with 3 dogs. 
  • This week's highlights were high school graduations and post-graduation feasting.  So proud of the graduates and I hope they will continue to be mindful of being a responsible friend, student, young citizen when they go off to college. 
  • The bug I am having has made it difficult to breathe and sleep at night. This week's attempts at waking up early to get my workouts in weren't successful. Throw 2 nights of graduation ceremonies into the mix, for this week's workouts to materialize, that would mean some creative scheduling.
    • Did Jillian Michaels while watching the oven.
    • Run multiple laps to the mailbox and back (0.5 mile each way)
    • Pack running shoes and clothes so I could stop by the gym on my way home. 
    • Run as fast as I can so I can get done, go home, fix supper, and feed.
  • Since I missed yesterday session with Jillian, I am going to have to do it later today. Lunch time will be a good time.  And then, I will be caught up with my workout plans with another Jillian session and a 3.5 mile run left to go.
  • Drinking juice is a good way to get my 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. I'm loving 2 oranges, 2 apples, 1 tomato.
    What's your favorite juice mix?

  5. That mailbox is pretty far! I would be so impressed with myself for doing that. LOL!
