Happy All Hallows Eve everyone!! Hope y'all are going to enjoy this day as much as we are. Everyone is still sleeping, but they should be up soon. We're taking the day off of school today so we can do hair, have fun, and eat wayyyyy too much candy. The girls are insisting that they wear their costumes all day long. I'll be sure to take tons of pictures.
We have mummy dogs, caveman clubs, and something else (though I can't come up with anything else - help!) on the menu for tonight. Maybe we'll bake some cupcakes, too.
Okay, I did week 4/day 2 today. I had not run for the past two days because I had a horrid migraine. I figured today would just kick my butt, but I was happily mistaken. Here's the cliff notes on how it went:
Warm up - fine
3 Minute Run - surprisingly okay
90 second walk - oh so thankful for
5 minute run - thought I might fall out for a moment, but recovered nicely and finished all 5 minutes.
2.5 minute walk - again, quite thankful for
3 minute run - I thought "hey, this isn't so bad!" And I wasn't ready for him to say that the 3 minutes was up. Hmmmmmmm.
90 second walk - yay!
last 5 minute run - Here's where I was beginning to run out of steam. I was huffing and puffing like the wolf in the 3 Little Bears. I was running slower than I would walk. Hopefully no one saw me. And then my podcast guy said "hey, one minute left." So I ran faster. Not much faster, but hey, every little bit helps. And then I finished. The whole thing with a bit of energy left to get myself back to the van. ;)
I'll do it again on Sunday and see what happens.
Now, for those of you that make your own pizza, I've learned something fascinating. (or maybe y'all already know about it and I'm the last to learn) Normally I make my dough, roll it out, put my stuff on, and bake it in the oven. But I watched on my favorite channel (The Food Network) how to make your crust in a cast iron skillet and then finish it all off in the oven. Can I tell you that it's wonderful?!?!? OMG. I did that last night and I was really glad that I tried it. I'm afraid I'll be eating way too much pizza now that I did that.
Well, time to wake up the kids; they seem to be too comfortable in bed! Though I am enjoying a nice, peaceful cup of coffee while the house is quiet. Maybe I'll leave them there. Shhhhhh.......
Enjoy your Halloween/All Hallows Eve/Samhain/candy eating day/whatever. Tomorrow we'll celebrate Dia de los Muertos and talk about all of our family and friends who have gone on before us. Besides Christmas, this is my favorite time of year.
