Weekly Sweats: Long Term

On paper nothing remarkable happened this week.  25.4 miles of running (11.5 of them outside thank you very much!) and one strength workout.  One of the most frustrating things about this winter is that the weather has kept me stuck in a holding pattern where I'm not really working toward anything except keeping my fitness for better days.  Increasingly signs of spring are emerging, and I'll soon be able to start working on my long term goals again instead of just passing the time.

Weekly Sweats: Back outside!!!

Friends, I got to run outside for the first time in five weeks today and I am so happy about it!  21.45 miles this week with one strength workout and a back owie.  And oh yes I bought another pair of shoes, oh yes I did.

Weekly Eats: The Calm Before the Storm


A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  This was the last "calm" week before a big project that I am working on takes off.  For the next few months I am making no pretense of being able to cook dinner on weeknights...if it happens it happens and the rest will be meal prep and Daddy Dinner Duty.

Weekly Eats: Bullet Journal?


A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  

This week's big musing was about bullet journals.  I've hear a lot about them but I've never quite understood what they are.  Any time I try to read up I just see links to fancy notebooks and pencils, which doesn't sound like my kind of hobby.  But this post from Modern Mrs. Darcy kind of cleared it up for me.  She wrote that she's now including her family's dinners in her journal "this may seem like such a silly thing to's a log I never imagined I'd want or need".

So...have I been keeping a bullet journal via the blog all this time without even knowing about it?  Huh.

Weekly Eats: Pie Squared


A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  In this week's adventures, I set aside my go-to apple pie recipe and tried something new for our "double pie" Sunday dinner.  Random TV watching and books ensued.
