Motivation…I found you!

Hey all! I had every intention of blogging yesterday, but I was busy! I don’t know what got into me, but I cleaned the whole house top to bottom. Ok…so I missed dusting the entertainment center. How does that thing get so dusty so fast?! Who’s idea was it to get an all glass entertainment center? Oh…right…

But yeah…I cleaned the bathroom, the kitchen, did ALL. THE. LAUNDRY. Decluttered our room and our office. I did take one glance into the boys’ room and thought, “Meh. Good enough.” I vacuumed. I washed our sheets. I washed the dog. Both of those things must be done together. Clean dog + clean sheets = our bedroom instantly smells good!

I ran 5 miles. A nice easy TM ladder. You can glance over at my DM widget to see exactly what I did. I am so ready to run outside. I don’t HATE the treadmill and the indoor track like some runners do, but I am looking forward to some sunshine on my face again.

I stopped at the grocery store on my way home from the gym and grabbed some O-Ring thingies to store our race bibs on. I also got some kale. YUM…kale. We need to take down our 2014 medals and get ready for all the 2015 ones. How do you store your medals? We keep ours up for a year and then put them away. I’ll take pictures once we have the medal-taking-down ceremony this week.

After lunch, I sat down and filled out this bad boy.

One of my coworkers got it for me. Isn’t she awesome?! I’m really excited to be able to track my run with good ole fashioned pen and paper. It encourages you to keep a running total of your mileage, which I started doing last year, but then stopped. Daily Mile is nice, but it rounds numbers and doesn’t split up your totals at the end of the year (running, biking, swimming, etc). I like numbers, so it’ll be neat to see how much I’ve done of everything at the end of 2015.

I made more marinara sauce yesterday from The Runner’s World Cookbook. A double batch this time. Holy moly, this stuff is GOOD. We had it on pizza Sunday night. I’m going to make up some personal size pizzas with just dough and sauce to freeze. Then I can thaw one and throw some toppings on (roasted kale and homemade meatballs!) whenever I want pizza for lunch!

After work last night I stopped at Target. They had sports bras on sale for $10 and then a Cartwheel for 50% off. $5 sports bras…sign me up! I didn’t get off work until almost 9, so by the time I got there all they had left was XS and XL. I stared at the XS and though “No way will that fit me.” I took a chance and tried it on. It fit me…like the small-would-be-too-big fit me. I called my grandma and told her I was staging a coup and was overthrowing her as president of the “Itty Bitty Titty Committee.” Mr. Neon asked me why I needed more sports bras. I told him these would be my PiYo bras. He asked me if I would need a whole PiYo wardrobe. Uh…no. At least I don’t think so. (hehehe) Just PiYo bras…less constrictive than my running bras. You girls out there understand, right? Side note: I totally ordered PiYo from my Beach Body Coach. I’m pumped. It shipped this morning! Be prepared for lots of PiYo talk!

Alright, I’m off to finish up baking bread and fold the laundry. I’ve got all three dough buckets going today. Regular breakfast bread on top, challah on the bottom left, and pizza dough on the bottom right. YUM!

And then I’ve got to get ready for a lunch/shopping date with my mama. We usually hang out once a week or so, but we haven’t had lunch since before Christmas!
