Alrighty then! I wanted to get back into my regular routine today, as that’s kinda been thrown off as of late, especially since I ended up having another three day weekend because Luke took off work yesterday. I didn’t quite make it back today, but close enough. 😉

Anyway, the reason we ended up having a three day weekend was because my brother and his friend were driving back to Colorado to Illinois, so of course they wanted to stop here in Kansas. No big deal, but there was some bad weather coming to Colorado, so they left Sunday night instead of Monday morning, like they had originally planned. Still not a big deal though, my mom told me they should have gotten here around midnight or 1 am. That’s why Luke took off work. He didn’t want to stay up late and then have to wake up at 5:45 am the next day. 

I guess they ended up getting caught in some bad weather anyway, because they didn’t make it here until 3:40 am. Unfortunately for them, we had all bailed and gone to bed by then. I gave up at 1 because I don’t typically do late nights anymore, and Luke just missed them and went to bed at 3:20, but he left the lights on and door unlocked, so once they got here the could come in and crash on the couch. Which they did. 🙂

Then everyone slept in on Monday morning after our late nights. I got up around 8:40 am and just kinda chilled in the kitchen while everyone else was sleeping. My brother and his friend got up around 11 and left not long after. At the very least they got a decent amount of sleep which was good. Sucks they couldn’t hang out for a bit though. Then Luke got up around 11:15 and we finally began our long day of playing video games haha.

That definitely wasn’t my first choice of what to do with our day, but that’s what Luke wanted to do and he wanted to spend some time with me, so that’s what we did! Even though I needed to run, stretch, and desperately needed to clean the house. I was feeling very overwhelmed yesterday…

But I got a pretty good start on stuff today though. I got most of the laundry done, the living room and bathroom are clean, the dogs got walked, I ran, did a strength workout, and did a bunch of dishes by hand because we’re out of dishwasher detergent. Eww, washing dishes by hand is literally my least favorite thing in the world to do. But whatever, I feel like I’ve had a productive day! 

My run was a bit uneventful, but fun. Just an easy 2 mile to get the legs moving today. They were feeling kinda heavy after all the sitting I did yesterday. It’s it funny how exhausting sitting around and doing nothing all day can be? Running felt sooooo good after a day of that! 


Plus today was my favorite running weather! Cold (about 35 degrees), cloudy, and a little bit wet. It wasn’t exactly raining today, but I did get drizzled on a bit, so I’ll take it! 

After my run I did the second half of the Jillian Michaels video I did last week! I couldn’t do the whole thing I’m one sitting last week, so I had planned on finishing it later that week, but life happened. Oh well, I got it done today and I’m good with that! This week my goal is to strength train twice this week so I’m halfway there! 😉

My goal for tomorrow is to actually wake up at my usual time. The cold weather has me a little bit spoiled, since I can run relatively comfortably at any point in the day, but spring will be here soon and so will the warm weather, and before I know it I’ll have to be up before the sun again. That’s not going to be a fun transition if I’m constantly getting up around 7:45-8 ish in the morning. So my alarms set for 6 am tomorrow. Haha we’ll just see how that goes. My guess is not well…


Happy Tuesday!
