Happy Halloween

Good Morning!  It’s Halloween!

Does everyone have big plans tonight?  Stinks that it’s a work/school night, but hope everyone has a good time anyway.

Yesterday….

I got my day going with some treadmill time.

Our treadmill is so old.  Sara’s pretty much the only one who uses it.

I think we bought it in 2005.  It sounds like a train is going through the downstairs and it doesn’t go the speed you tell it to, it always goes a little faster.  If I set it to 5.0 mph, I will be running at 6.0 mph, but the calories and distance still count from the 5.0 mph.

But it works. (and that is what Justin tells me every time I whine about wanting a new treadmill. *pout*)

I felt like doing some running and it since I’m afraid of running in the dark all by myself, I dusted off the old treadmill.  I ran two miles, then walked at 3.5 mph at 10% incline (that’s as high as that bad boy will go), then ran another mile.

I made a big batch

of salsa fresca, or pico de gallo, whatever you want to call it.

It is so easy and so good on EVERYTHING!

I used:

  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a large onion
  • cilantro
  • lime juice
  • jalapeno juice (I forgot to buy a fresh jalapeno so I used some juice from a jar)

Later in the day,

I lifted some weight: Hammies and glutes

Oh my gosh, did I eat some good food yesterday, or what?! 

Look at our cat.

He has the life, I tell you.  He has his own bedroom with a Queen size bed.  We have a baby gate at the door so the dogs can’t bother him.

That little fart, yet he still bites me and claws at my head and ruins our furniture.  Ungrateful.
