Week in Review – November 17, 2017

Hi, guys!

First of all, I apologize for being so late on this post! As you recall from my post on Nov. 10, we painted our entire house in the last two weeks. And, I’m excited to say that we finally finished it! But, because we put so much time towards our house, I did not have time to blog at all last week. But, now that we are done, I should have more time moving forward!

I know that this recap is almost a week old, but I still definitely wanted to do it.

Let’s get started!

Workouts

I completed Dopey Challenge Training week #24 last week, and boy was it tiring! As you’ll see below, week #24 brought lots of running and my second virtual Dopey Challenge. Only two virtual Dopey weeks left until race weekend!

  • Friday: 30 minutes on the exercise bike at home and some leg and arm exercises
  • Saturday: 11 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Sunday: Rest day!
  • Monday: 30 minutes on the exercise bike at home and some leg and arm exercises
  • Tuesday: 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Wednesday: 8 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Thursday: 30 minutes on the exercise bike at home and some leg and arm exercises
  • Friday: 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Saturday: 8 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Sunday: 18 miles around the neighborhood

Haha! This is how I felt after running my 18-miler in 27mph wind.

Experiences

Last night, we finally finished painting! I haven’t taken any photos yet because we are still working on getting our house back together. Once we have everything in its place, I’ll be sure to take some photos to share with you all! I absolutely love everything we did, and our house finally feels like OUR home.

My other favorite experience from last week was watching the Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas. I’m definitely THAT girl that plays Christmas music and watches Christmas movies the day after Halloween. With all of the painting, I couldn’t really start watching until last week. I just love these cheesy movies!

Books:

I’m still working on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I didn’t get much further last week because we have been puzzling at work. We are almost finished, so I’ll be able to read at lunch again soon!

Food:

Again, I did not take any photos for this category. But, Steve and I did go to our favorite restaurant last Sunday (Nov. 12) for happy hour and dinner. As usual, it was AMAZING! We usually try to go once a month, but, as you’ll see in this week’s recap on Friday, we ended up going this past weekend as well. Oops!

Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?

I’m going to skip this category for last week’s post because I’m currently in “next week.” I’ll catch you up on all of the exciting happenings on Friday!

What are you most excited for this weekend?
