Daytona 500 and Oscars all in one day!

Today started out with a 6 mile long run with my running buddy. We met up over at the Huckleberry Trail (where last week’s race was). It was really windy when we started out, and we were both freezing! But then we warmed up and the wind died down some as we got further out on the trail. It was a really enjoyable run and I felt good, which is a nice change from how things have been recently. The weather also really helped- it is absolutely gorgeous outside today. The temperature is in the high 40’s and there’s not a cloud in the sky.

Huckleberry Trail, but not from today’s run.
There aren’t that many leaves on the trees right now.

Once I got home I did level 1 of Jillian 30 day shred, keeping to my 30 day commitment. Today was day 7 and I continue to get more comfortable with the workout. The squats and static lunges were tough today, since my legs were already a little tired. Oh and I still have not invested in some hand weights, so I continue to workout with my cans of apple pie filling.

Now I’m enjoying a hot mug of coffee before I get some laundry and cleaning done. Then later today it’s the Daytona 500! Go Harvick!! Boogity, boogity, boogity! Let’s go racing, boys!

And tonight it’s the Oscars (also known as the 85th Academy Awards… but they don’t want you to call it that because it makes it sound old). Such an exciting day of television, haha! I love movies and I’m excited to see who wins in each of the categories. Did anyone see this week’s episode of The Middle where they put up decorations and filled out ballots? Yea… I’m not that excited (to Barry’s relief).


Are you going to watch the race today? How about the Oscars?

Do you have a routine weekly cleaning regimen?
I dust the living room and sweep & swiffer the floors in the hall, living room, dining room, and kitchen each week. It’s a must since we have indoor dogs.

  1. I’m glad the wind died down for you… That is one thing I can’t stand when I run!
    We might end up watching the Oscar’s. I do like that everyone seems to get excited about it. Hope it’s a great show. We watched some women’s basketball today.
    Most of my cleaning happens on Thursday when I don’t have class… Laundry, too.

    1. Hope you enjoy the Oscar’s! The only time I really watch basketball is during March Madness.

      It can definitely be a challenge to run in the wind (or to get out there in the first place)!

  2. I watched just a tiny bit of the Oscars but I did enjoy looking at the best and worst dressed websites today. I think if I used apple pie filling for weights I would open it and eat it when I finished! LOL How do you like the Shred videos?

    1. Haha, I love your comment about eating the pie filling! Luckily I usually don’t crave sweets after working out, so I haven’t had to fight that battle, yet. I like the shred workout so far (I’ve only done level 1). It’s tough enough to get my heart rate up and I break a sweat, but short enough that I can do it in the morning before work without getting up really early. Have you done the shred video before?
