Apples & Onions ~ Weekly Wrap Up

 

Happy Monday!

Honestly, I’ve tried to start this blog post a number of times I can’t come up with a good first line other then Happy Monday….though it just doesn’t seem so “happy” out there, ya know! Quebec, US, Russia…oh man, so many things going on. I’m gonna try to stay positive folks…hang on.

Last weeks workouts were all over the place. I often wonder people following my Instagram, if they think I just can’t settle on one activity since I’ve been doing so many different things lately. I guess that’s the bonus of winter time and all the adventures we try to take advantage of. However, WE NEED MORE SNOW! Seriously winter, snow please.

January 22nd – January 29th’s Workouts.

  • Sunday: 8 am Soccer Game (way too early!)
  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: Treadmill Run: 5k
  • Wednesday: Rest
  • Thursday: Physiotherapy Appointment & Soccer Game
  • Friday: Rest
  • Saturday: Nothing.
  • Sunday: Skating with the family 30-40 minutes.

This past weekend we had very little planned and it was great. We hit up our local farmers market, relaxed, missed gymnastics due to the instructor being ill and went skating instead. Skating was short as it was way too warm and the ice was melting. A quick 30 – 40 minute skate session with the girls and lots of wet snow pants 🙂

That’s a puddle under my feet above….yup, they fell in it! But we all left smiling 🙂

Running

I’ve barely run all week! Just one treadmill run in the middle of the week which was great. I’ve been given the go-ahead to increase my mileage and test out 7k! You’d think that knowing this last Thursday would push me out the door on the weekend but it didn’t. Sometimes you just have to rest and relax more then you need to run, workout or write a blog post.

Apples and Onions

Back in the day when I worked with youth at an over night camp, we would always ask our campers “what’s your apple / onion of the day”. It was a way to share something that went well or they liked (apple) and something that they didn’t like or didn’t enjoy (onion). We started doing that with our daughters a while back and it’s really funny sometimes what they come up with.

So, at bed time we ask them what their “rainbow” or “rain cloud” of the day was. It’s now become just something that we do and often Lilly, our oldest would say well before bedtime…”I know my rainbow already”.  It’s eye opening to see through their eyes things such as excitement or disappointment!

My apple: Getting to Barre class at lunch time today!

My onion: my washer eating my Tiux compression sock. Just one of them. It’s gone! Like gone-gone. Washer repair guy comes on Wednesday. How’s that for an onion?

How was your weekend?

Anyone enjoying outdoor activities?

Got an “apple” or “onion” to share?

  1. It drives me crazy when my washer eats things. We had a clog the other day and Youtubed how to take it apart. There were several very musty, missing pieces. I don’t know how they managed to get down in there. I will be happy to share our snow if you promise to send your warmer weather!

  2. Well, my dog has now eaten two of my feeture socks Ironically, they were the same color, and if I had saved the extra sock, I would only be down one pair instead of two.

  3. I had a dryer that had a weird crack in it and all of my clothes would get caught in it. I ruined so many clothes that way. We had to convince my landlord to replace it for us. As for an apple, I placed third in my age group for a 10 mile race I ran this past weekend. 🙂

  4. I hope you get more snow before winter is over. I can’t remember the last time I went ice skating! I’m not sure how well I’d do dodging puddles. I love the idea of a daily Apple/Onion. My onion – I had a bad test result at a doc’s appointment and now I have to worry 30 days before taking it again. My apple – I got to ride my bike in the beautiful sunshine yesterday. Great to see you on the Weekly Wrap, Anna!
