TOLT: Friday Favorites on Thursday

Another Preggo PR.Β Are you guys annoyed with these yet? I promise I’m not trying to get faster and I don’t “speed up” on every run, but sometimes the legs are just feeling it. I mean, this PR is nothing huge, but it’s still a win in my book. 4 miles at just under a 9 pace, ~8:50.

Take home soft serve on the couch while treating my legs right! I’ve brought back the nights of wearing compression socks now that I’m running again. They really do help me recover faster. So does ice cream.

Body Glide. There’s no denying that I love running, but I’ve been chaffing more now, running 4 miles, than I did running 3 times that much. With the weight I had to gain to get pregnant PLUS the weight I’m gaining while I’m pregnant, there is extra jiggle everywhere. Body Glide is my saving grace πŸ™‚ It goes ALL over.Body Glide

Carrot cake.Β Homemade cakes come in two categories, 1) it’s good because it’s cake-duh, but MEH, it’s not really worth the sugar and cals and 2) HECK YES this is awesome. Number 2 is pretty much the definition of my mom’s cakes and has to be moist and have the perfect frosting to cake ratio. My friends who hosted the smoked turkey dinner also made a carrot cake and it was AWESOME. Right on par with my mom’s. That is rare.

Cute baby gifts. I was so surprised and elated when I got this cute little owl cap from one of my male coworkers wives. She wrote a sweet card and it really made my day πŸ™‚

AND my sister’s boyfriends mom MADE, I repeat, MADE this cute little sweater. So impressed. I need to send her a Thank You card ASAP!

    • LOL, Thanks Brittany. I’ll really be jazzed when I can get back down to under 7min, but I’ll take what I can get while I’m growing a human πŸ˜‰

    • I think one of the greatest things is getting something thoughtful, yet unexpected from someone. Really makes your day and makes you feel good πŸ™‚

    • 1st graders are the best! My mom taught them for several years. I used to LOVE going to her class and helping out. Good luck and have fun! I know that first week back is exhausting!!!

  1. That little sweater is so beautiful!! What a talent she has πŸ™‚ You will treasure that for years to come. A good friend of mine knitted a little sweater for my youngest and I was crushed when she outgrew it!! And congrats on your preggo PR!! Fantastic!!

    • I just hope it stays cold enough here for her to wear it more than once, haha. You’ll prob see a million pictures of her in it, haha. And thanks! It’s the little things that make me happy πŸ™‚
