It was a lovely, quiet day:)

Exercise:

We didn’t get the snow that was forecasted so my running buddy Sarah and I headed out on “the sidewalk” as unfortunately most sidewalks are still covered in ice:(. We were both on the struggle bus today, but still managed 4.5km. It’s better than nothing, but I really didn’t need that headwind coming home!

I also did a workout this afternoon. It was thirty seconds of each of the following:

Inchworm push-up, hip Bridges, right side kick, tricep push-up, sumo squat with knee up, left side kick, walking push-up, side crunches, pile squats, right and left donkey kicks, sit ups, twisted mountain climbers, swimmers, plank with leg lifts, wide pushups, reverse lunges, right side plank, pike pushups, left side plank.

On top of this I got my 200 squats done.

Knitting:

I forced myself to come home from my run and go directly over to look for buttons for the two baby sweaters. I was unimpressed with the selection, but bought some boring ones and got them attached. I now have permission to buy buttons when I see cute ones! I also got a baby hat made.

I liked the pattern, free on Ravelry called Baby Bear Hat, but I would definitely make it bigger next time!

Reading:

I have to admit that I have spent most of the day reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. There is the pressure of only having ten days to get it done, but it’s actually really engaging! I’ll do a better review when I’m finished.

Well I’m off to read some more and maybe text with the cop who texted me today that he’s back from Thailand:)

Oh and I guess I should figure out what to take for Bookclub tomorrow.

Have fun!

  1. I took Max for a walk yesterday, even though he turned around before we got to the main road! At least we got some fresh air. This has been a tough winter for getting outside, but you have been determined

    1. I am very thankful for the sidewalk that the city clears as otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get out the past couple of weeks. I’m just not willing to take a chance running on ice and hurting myself. It is nice to get out for some fresh air, isn’t it?:)

  2. I was going to ask you the other day if you’d heard back from him lately. Hope you get to catch up again.

    running on ice does not sound safe nevermind fun. be safe out there

    the little hat is cute, I’m sure some mom will be very happy to have that for her little one

    1. Ya I had given up on him until his text popped up yesterday. We’ll see if we can arrange something.
      Yup I’m trying to stick to nice,clear sidewalks!

  3. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on “Becoming”, and glad it was a nice day despite the headwinds 😉 How you find the time to knit all that you do is beyond me!!

    1. Thank you! So far I’m enjoying the book!
      I should probably do more cleaning than I do and haven’t been socializing as much these last couple of weeks with all the snow so I’ve had more time at home
