We started our morning off early by going to help some friends out and do some cleaning. Brooke made a new best friend.
From there my sister-in-law and I went STRAIGHT to the gym (PS my SIL is 5 months pregnant and still rocking her workouts) and while we were there we saw THE Billy Banks… inventor of Tae Bo. I really want to take his class someday.
I thought that I had packed clothes for the gym and when I went in to the bathrooms to change out of my cleaning clothes I had only packed a sports bra and my running shoes. I had two options and lucky for everyone I chose to stay in my cleaning clothes for my run. Only problem was that I was wearing clothes meant to run in 20 degrees in an already hot gym. I decided I was NOT going to let being hot be my excuse for taking it easy.
I did 8.35 miles in 60 minutes… I think that is about a 7:10 pace. I was a sweat ball at the end and got at least 8 drops of sweat in each eyeball. I know I am a Brooks Ambassador and all but I really and truly promise you that the PureFlow 2s
are my absolute favorite shoes ever. I cannot say enough good about them.
While we were at the gym Billy’s family went for donuts. I threatened Billy if he didn’t bring me home an apple fritter that there were going to be serious problems… it was heavenly.
Next thing I knew it and everyone was ready to go to Costco. We love eating lunch there and I had my normal chicken caesar salad.
My in-laws always buy half the store (one of two carts).
This is where it gets exciting. We went to the Spectrum (an awesome outdoor mall and this is how Billy and Brooke stayed entertained in Lululemon.
Yep, still in my cleaning clothes. My SIL and I got matching running tanks and I can’t wait to wear them at the same time at the gym and at home and at the mall and at the park and at In-n-Out so that people can see our twinnerness (I am quite upset that they didn’t carry it in Brooke’s size).
We got home and my MIL forgot that she needed to make a trillion cookies for something. I decided that I wanted to make them so I ended up making 130 chocolate chip cookies. I think I will quadruple the recipe each time I make cookies, way more fun that way.
For dinner my MIL made her famous ribs and my BIL made creamed corn and the best everything potatoes I have ever had (cheese, cream cheese, bacon, green onions and butter).
To top it all off we watched Elf and I was in bed by 10. I feel very good about that.
Have you found YOUR running shoes… the shoe that you would pull out your hair out of anger if they ever discontinued them?!?!
#1 choice of donut?
Any readers pregnant right now?
What kind of cookies have you made this holiday break?
