Monday: Wow! I ran 3.75 miles after work when I was crunched on time as dear hubby and I had a class to go to. Thank goodness darling daughter was buying her lunch the next day and I was making dinner! I followed it up with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Relaxation - however, if there were yoga police they may bust me because as I was practicing I was reading off questions on darling daughter's homework. Yep, yoga and homework combined!
Tuesday: 5 miles after work followed up by 15 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Combination. I commented that yoga was keeping the chiropractor away.
Wednesday: Oh darnit! My left hip is bugging me! 1.32 miles in the morning followed up by 30 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Flexibility. My hip felt looser at the end and this was an odd day. Dear hubby and I took darling daughter to school before he took me to the eye doctor. Yep, I need glasses. Darnit again. We followed it up by going to Costco to get a few groceries and walked out, kind of, with a playhouse. Yep, my dear friend had to go pick it up since big boxes do not fit into sedans. Nope, they don't. Operation Playhouse started after darling daughter went to bed with a late night delivery and getting the box and pieces hidden in the shed.
Thursday: 3.12 miles after work since I just didn't want to leave my family. I followed it up with 15 minutes of yoga - Beginner Flexibility. My left hip is continuing to loosen up but I decided I shouldn't tempt fate again by saying yoga is keeping the chiropractor away. I just may need to go for an adjustment after all but still, I have lasted a longer time!
Friday: 5.05 miles after work followed up by 30 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Flexibility. I am really seeing improvements in my flexibility even though there are days I feel tighter than others. After darling daughter went to sleep Operation Playhouse continued with about two hours of assembly.
Saturday: 7.72 miles in the morning at the gym to honor running streak day 772. I followed it up with 15 minutes of yoga - Intermediate Combination. Darling daughter and I ran our weekly errands but picked up some nice stuff for a garden - a little angel statue, some plants, and some red mulch. Once we got home and ate lunch with hit the garden and had a blast seeing the fruits of our labor truly transform our little neck in the woods. We literally just had rocks, dirt, and weeds. We have added layers, mulch pathways, stepping stones, compost bins, etc. I ran another 3.24 miles later in the afternoon and then darling daughter and I decorated the house with banners, streamers, and balloons for her birthday weekend. After darling daughter went to sleep Operation Playhouse continued with about 3 hours of assembly.

|I LOVE the transformation!|
And today is darling daughter's official birthday. Right about now dear hubby would have been driving me down that twisty, curvy road to the hospital six years ago. I am truly blessed to have her in my life and am glad I devoted the weekend to her. Yes, I miss running long. Yes, I miss running outside but I did get some good mileage in (36 to be exact) and made her feel special. After all, today she has school and then will be going to my friend's house as dear hubby and I have another commitment tonight. But don't worry, darling daughter has already scheduled some Barbie playing time for this afternoon to ensure we have our bonding time. And I can't wait to hear from darling daughter about how her cake pops did at school today! Yes, in honor of her birthday she brought in 2 dozen horse cake pops and no, I didn't make these.
Daily Gratitude: I am thankful dear hubby is attending these classes with me.
Daily Affirmation: I am a good mom.
