The Weekly Wrap

Last week started with Todd coming home from a short work trip to DC and a doctors appointment for me. It ended with plenty of running, food, family and fun! I did 2 easy 6 milers, one 10 x 400 (.25 miles) @ 6:27 pace workout and got in 8 wonderful miles with Jolene on Friday. Friday afternoon Kara and I had our usual Froyo date, but my parents joined. Kara was SO excited when they walked in. Saturday began the normal way, with Kara and pancakes. She slept until 8:45!!! I ended up getting up around 8:30 which is […]

It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve blogged and I blame it on Irma! Last week started with the hurricane, which came in Sunday night into Monday. I’ll do a whole separate post on that, but it affected a lot. Luckily, we didn’t have any damage, but a lot of people lost power, including our work. We got a text Monday that work would resume Wednesday. We got in on Wednesday and after an hour were told to go home because the AC wasn’t working and we were still on a generator. Great. We picked up Kara and went home 🙂 […]

I’ve been logging some pretty great mileage the last month or so! I can 100% say that it has made a huge difference in how this cycle of injections has gone. Both mentally and physically I’ve been in a better place. Not being able to exercise makes me feel like crap and that’s what I had to do at my previous Reproductive Doctor. Not only was I bloated from the meds, but from not being able to sweat. (TMI: and not being able to crap! exercising keeps me regular!) So this go around I’ve been in a much better place. […]

Happy Monday! This is going to be a busy week for me! I’ve got a lot going on at work and with doctors appointments and I’m ready to get the ball rolling! Here are some highlights from last week… Kara is obsessed with riding in the passenger seat of the car. She goes to the garage door and yells car! car! We just go around the neighborhood, but she sits the whole time and absolutely loves it! (she is wearing a diaper in the second pic- just for clarification) I know people loath the treadmill, but I love it! Maybe […]

Happy Monday Folks! Last week was somewhat less hectic than others but, as usual, it flew by. How we are already in the middle of August just baffles me! Since I’m not training for anything, I figured I’d give you a little rundown of my runs during the week, with some “last week life” thrown in… Monday: I always take Monday as a rest day. Ever since I started running, I’d take the day after my long run off. Some people like to do a little shake out run, but for me, a complete day off works best. Plus, with work, it’s […]

Last week had just enough going on to keep us on our toes and having fun! I think the highlight of my week was Kara pooping in the potty! I swore I’d never be THAT mom that posts pictures of her kids poop, but here I am! haha. At least I covered it up… Kara is always pulling on her diaper and saying poo poo. We sit on the potty regularly, even though she normally just wants toilet paper to wipe, but we haven’t officially started “training” her. Wednesday night while I was lifting weights and Todd and Kara were in […]

As the title says, I have a lot to recap from last week, so let’s get to it! Last week we were a bit worried that Kara was getting sick. She didn’t have a fever but felt warm and had a slightly running nose and cough. Todd ended up staying home with her Monday and Tuesday and sent me all kind of fun pictures and videos! This was my fave… I got a new “toy” to add to my running data obsession 🙂 The Milestone Pod. You can see just SOME of the data it provides below. It syncs up […]

I got in two really great runs with Jolene last week. I don’t know what happened, but out of no where, my comfortable pace dropped to the low 8:00’s. Not gonna lie, it felt good! I know running with Jolene is what helped. Miles fly by with her. I really focused on listening to her footsteps to increase my cadence and it worked! Look at the difference between the first and second run! I was also able to keep my heart rate at a respectable 157-160, which, for that pace in the heat and humidity, I was happy with 🙂 Kara […]

Happy Monday! Last week was a weird one, huh?! We had to work Monday, had Tuesday off and then worked the rest of the week. Made for a very unproductive week, work wise, if you ask me, but productive in every other area, haha. On Tuesday, we went to the Glazer Children’s Museum with Nana. If you live or are visiting Tampa and have kids you HAVE to go there. The mission of the Glazer Children’s Museum is to create learning environments where children play, discover, and connect to the world around them to develop as lifelong learners and leaders. Kara […]

It was a busy weekend in the Winchell household! But let’s start with last week… Todd took the week off of work to get some stuff done around the house. We’ve lived in our house for over a year now and are slowly decorating. Todd did this navy shiplap wall and it turned out awesome! Now we have to decide whether or not to paint the speakers navy or keep them white… I received two awesome shipments during the week! I love me a Western Bagel. This was my first time trying the Begelettes and I’m a huge fan. 60 […]
