Standing, Fried Chicken and Kara
I got a standing desk at work! This was right when it was installed, but I’ve since decorated a bit. My feet were actually pretty sore from standing so this weekend I bought a mat to stand on. Hopefully that helps. I’m excited to see my productivity skyrocket 😉
The Long Run. My long run this week was, you guessed it… tough. The workout was 2 warm up, 2 x 1.5 miles at 7:25, 10 miles, 3 miles @ 7:30, 2 cool down. I hit the first two 1.5’s at 7:20 and 7:23, but the last three miles were cut to 2 and done at 7:54. I think I’m losing to much water and need to look into salt tabs. My sweat rate is ridiculous and I think it’s because of nursing. I’ve always been a heavy sweater, but since having Kara it’s gotten much worse. However, I did enjoy a post run cup of joe and pancakes while we watched the Women’s Olympic Marathon. So happy the girls all placed in the top 10!!!
Fried Chicken. I also indulged in some fried chicken after my run. I just wanted the salty, crispy goodness and that’s what I got. I couldn’t tell you the last time I had fried chicken (this was my fave time), but the tenders from Publix are SO GOOD! And for the record, I only had three, not this whole basket, haha.
Car Rides. Babies are supposed to love car rides right? Don’t some parents put their kids in the car to help them fall asleep?! Not my child. Put her in the car past the hour of 5PM and she cries/fusses/whines the whole time. Thankfully though, she is getting much better and mommy is very grateful for that!
Ring Ring! One of Kara’s new things is to hold whatever it is she’s holding up to her ear. I SWEAR Todd and I are rarely on our phones, so I’m not sure where’s she’s getting t from. Probably just a fluke, but I always say ring ring! and pretend she’s making a call, haha.
Hair at work. I hate wasting time sitting in traffic. On mornings that I run, if I take the time to blow dry and straighten my soaking wet hair, I end up leaving at a time that is horrible for traffic. Sooooo I bring my stuff and do it at work! Surprising there aren’t any outlets on our bathrooms to do it there, so I set up a little station in the office. A few things about this pic: yes the guys play pokemon and thought it would be funny to put them around the office, yes, I’m barefoot because, why not and yes I went to Walmart that day (I had to, it wasn’t by choice) and someone asked me where they could find the bake ware. We have work polos that I randomly wear during the week and I guess I picked the wrong day, haha.
