Man, I miss me some TGIF TV shows.  Step by Step, Hang Time..... I also remember when SOMETIMES I could stay up past 10 to watch a little bit of 20/20.  Ahh.. to have a 10pm Friday night bedtime ha. 
The high of my week was completing the #mileaday challenge every day!! It really took all I had tonight to get on it after the kiddo went to bed.  I had changed into my workout clothes after dinner but we watched a movie, played dominos, legos and ate popcorn.  But I did it.  And I told myself, it's cool, just do a mile and be done, but I ended up deciding to run after walking 7 1/2 minutes and next think you know I did 31 minutes and over 2 miles!
I took this picture on Thursday morning because I knew it was probably my last pretty non snow picture of 2015... good bye warm fall.. 
The low of my week was my babe coming home from school and telling me her little buddy said she didn't want to be her best-friend anymore.  My kiddo seemed okay by it and said they were still friends and they still played but they weren't 'best' friends.  Yeah.  I kinda hate that kid now.  ;)  I did tell her that I didn' think that was very nice and I would find new friends because that's just being hurtful.  She's brought it up a couple times but really seems okay.  Thursday was also rough because it had been 6 years since my grandma passed away.  Then in other child deep thoughts she came out with.. "some people dont' have moms... why?" I didn't end up needing to get into details but it was still sad.
The book I’m reading is I'm trying to pick which book to start so that will be determined over the weekend.  Can't make up my mind if I want mystery or what.
For my workouts, I completed 
  • Sunday – 2 mile walk/run, 10 squats, 25 jumping jacks
  • Monday - 1.5 walk/run, 3 sets of crunches, 3 20 second planks
  • Tuesday – 5 min warm up, 1 min run, 90 second run for 20 total minutes, 15 squats, 30 jumping jacks
  • Wednesday – 5 min warm up, 1 min run, 90 second run for 20 total minutes, 15 squats, 30 jumping jacks, and then 3 sets of weights for arms
  • Thursday – 1 mile walk/run, 20 squats, 35 jumping jacks
  • Friday – 2.09 mile walk/run
The best money I spent was my delicious dinner at Ruby Tuesday's on Thursday.  I had the New Orleans seafood.  It had yummy fish and shrimp with a creole sauce.  Yum Yum.  They did sadly change up their salad bar and I wasn't as in love with it as normal, but still good!  And honestly besides that, Taco Tuesday, groceries and gas I didn't spend any money this week.  Oh wait.. I did make my United Way donation!  That is definitely money well spent!
My plans this weekend include I had a baby shower tomorrow and then I am hoping the weather is at least outside walkable for during nap time.  Then I plan on putting on my sweats and watching football.  Sunday I am making a meal for a friend's family as part of a meal train after a big heart surgery and meeting up with some people for donations for my work's clothes closet for clients and their kids.  I also think I am going to stop at Marshalls and Michaels.  Hoping that works out.  I do need to do a ton of laundry too.  Blech.  And clean the kitchen and bathroom.  And decide on Stitch Fix. 

What plans do you have for the weekend? What are your weekend workout plans? What book are you reading?
