Fast Friday

Friday! And it's spring break next week which I have mixed feelings about. I'm really excited about not having to rush in the morning and get J to the bus, but I'm a little bit not looking forward to them all being home all day. So we will see how that all goes, but for now, let's talk about what has happened since last Friday.

Trevon's truck is starting to have some issues and it's time to get a new one. So last Friday he took some time off to go look for a new one. We didn't have a whole lot of luck, but M and V enjoyed the hospitality of a mechanic we took a few of the trucks to get checked out.

Later on Friday, we went to Trevon's work party.  His work does really awesome stuff for families every quarter. This time they took us all ice skating.  I feel like I should have stood on the bench with the girls in this picture to make it evener(<---- my computer told me this is a word...? I don't think I've ever said evener before) height wise. Trevon's 6'3" and I'm 5'2". So most of our pictures end up with him super tall or me looking like a kid unless we are sitting down haha.

J loved it and did really well.  It took her a little while to get the hang of it but once she did, she loved doing it as long as I didn't get too far away.

M didn't love it quite as much and neither did Trevon. So they went to play broom hockey while J and I skated. (we decided not to take V this time so he stayed home with Trevon's mom and had a nap).

On Saturday, I went out on a run. I was feeling really good and my knee hadn't bothered me at all so I decided to go a little further than just a warm-up.  I did 1.5 miles at a really easy pace.

It felt amazing to get out running again! The weather was also amazing.

We went from almost 60-degree weather on Saturday to this on Sunday! Utah has a hard time making up its mind that it's spring.  Hopefully, this will be the last time for a while. Luckily it melted Monday morning. 

My knee also didn't hurt on Sunday, but on Monday it was mad and I felt it for the next couple of days.  I made sure to ice and stretch and foam roll. I only did a little bit of rehab on Monday and took it pretty easy. I also decided to see if I could still do a headstand. It's been a really long time but I was surprised that I could still do it. Now to work on my handstand. 

On Tuesday J's school had mustach day so she went to school like this. 

And I did an arm workout at my mom's and did some good stretching afterward.

Wednesday I took a rest day because my knee was really bothering me. I took my workout time to do some good foam rolling.  I had a berry pineapple smoothie for lunch. Or what was left of it after this happened. I usually use the big Blendtec jar but grabbed the small one this time and I put too much in. It exploded. On a positive note, my ceiling got a really good wipe down after that so I can check that off my spring cleaning list.

Wednesday afternoon the girls were playing at their friend's house and I needed to get out of the house. So V and I went on a walk around our neighborhood.  V loved that he got to go for a walk. He's felt very cooped up inside with the cold and he kept pointing up and say "sky".  Trevon had meetings and it was kind of a long day so I knew it would help me through the evening if I got out and moved around a little bit and got some sun and fresh air. It did help a lot!

Thursday morning I decided to try doing my hair like this. I've always wanted naturally curly or wavy hair but growing up I didn't have much luck with my hair at all. It wasn't straight but it wasn't wavy and it was very thin. So after having kids, my hair started getting a little wavier and a little darker so I thought I'd give it a try again.  Eh, maybe once in a while I'll do my hair like this, but I'll probably go back to wearing it normal.

Workout totals for the week:

Saturday: 1.5 mile run

Sunday: off day

Monday: rehab/at home workout

Tuesday: upper body and core

Wednesday: 1.5-mile walk and foam rolling
