Week in Review – October 6, 2017

Another Friday…another week in review….

BUT, I took off today, so I’m a happy camper 🙂 Let’s get this recap and LONG weekend started!


And, with the conclusion of my long run today, Dopey Challenge training week #18 is done. Less than 13 weeks to go! I can’t believe that we are under the 90-day mark. This is absolutely insane!

  • Friday: 15 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike at the gym
  • Saturday: 8-mile run around the neighborhood
  • Sunday: Rest day!
  • Monday: 3-mile run around the neighborhood
  • Tuesday: 6 miles around the neighborhood and some arm exercises
  • Wednesday: 20 minutes on the bike and some leg exercises
  • Thursday: 5 miles around the neighborhood and some arm exercises

I already did my 15-mile training run this morning. We are traveling again this weekend, so I wanted to make sure that I got the run in before we leave (later today). The run went well, but it was rather humid. I’m happy that I started so early!



Although I didn’t take any photos this week/weekend (sorry about that), Steve and I had a VERY productive week. We cleaned the house and our washer, and we went shopping for a new wardrobe for Steve (which was my favorite experience this week)! We had so much fun at the outlets on Saturday. Steve got some great deals, including a suit, business casual pants, dress shirts, and golf pants.

Of course, because we were there already, I looked on the clearance racks and found some great deals for myself! I’ll be sure to share these items in another blog post (they are currently in the wash).


So…..are we surprised that I didn’t start the fifth Harry Potter book yet? 🙂 I was incredibly busy at work and home, so this fell to the bottom of my weekly to-do list.


Steve and I made fajitas (without the tortillas) this week, and it was AMAZING and very simple! We took grilled chicken, mixed in some fajita mix, and sautéed it with some peppers and onions. While we ate this plain (in a bowl), I enjoyed the leftovers over my salad at work yesterday…YUM! Again, I’m sorry that I slacked on the pictures this week. We will definitely be making this again, so I’ll be sure to take photos and share them in a future recipe post!

Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?

Like I said earlier, we are traveling again this weekend. Later today, we will be heading up to Erie, PA to visit Steve’s cousin at college. We’ve never been to Erie, so we’re excited to explore all that there is to do. I’m hoping that we can visit the zoo, but I’m sure that we will have fun with whatever we decide to do.

What are you most excited for this weekend?
