Fit After Little Bits

eat harder

Quiet Thursday and Hello, Friday!!

Friday dance. Friday dance!!! Woohoooooo to the weekend!!!

While our plans have changed, we still plan to make the most of our relaxing time this weekend.

Yesterday was a whole lot of down time.

Morning started with Jasper barking at cows. These cows have been in the field next to us ALL summer, but he still feels the need to bark at them in the morning. Should I tell him that they cant hear him and dont really care?


Brooke was still under the weather, so we spent a lot of time on the couch cuddling. She didnt have much of an appetite… except for beef jerky and chocolate ice cream?!?! Mother of the year 😉


We played some play doh, Candy Land and did some other low key activities before she opted for a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day. I took advantage of that time and got some computer work done whilst enjoying a new to me drink. Thanks, coupon 😉


I really liked it, though it smelled a bit like celery…and there was no celery in it?

I took the day as a rest day and the only exercise that I got involved riding my mountain bike down to the mail box.

Low key afternoon and evening and an early bedtime.

Brooke woke up feeling a lot better today. YAY!! Still not going to risk sharing her germs, so we packed Ken up and he will be heading to the Front Range solo after work this afternoon.

Jasper felt that the 61 degree house was a bit arctic this morning….so he made me make a fire.


Seriously though. This guy.


No big plans for the day. Probably a trainer ride this morning and then some hanging out. Hoping to get outside for a little bit before a cold front rolls in tomorrow.

Here are a couple pictures from our Fall pic session last week 🙂

Sunrises, More Dentists and Plan Changes

Howdy, folks! How is it hanging this morning? We are rocking a low key morning over here.

Yesterday, we had a gorgeous sunrise. I am not a fan of having it be dark when we get up, but sights like these make it a little more worthwhile.


I was supposed to have a dentist appt at 12, but they called to see if I could change it to 11. A quick change of plans had us heading into town for a dip in the pool before the visit.


After a quick swim, we headed to the dentist. This girl was so well behaved. Numb faced dentist selfies. Perfectly normal.



With no feeling in the right side of my face (everything went great and was super quick), we thought it would be a good plan to go grocery shopping and run some errands. I am sure that all of the people we saw were impressed with my half-smile.

Got home and built a blanket fort. Brooke’s hair was on point!


I headed to the basement for an hour trainer workout. Two by 10 minute intervals just around threshold. It was an absolute sweat fest..


Sexy, I know!

Afternoon fire, because the dog wanted one.


B started to feel kind of yucky in the evening so it was an early night (Ken and I ventured to the hot tub for a bit!). Some quality hang out time with Brooke between 2:20 and 4 this morning has me feeling beat today!  She still doesn’t feel great, but she is play doughing it pretty hard right now 😉 Hoping it is a quick thing! Unfortunately, I had to steal some of her juice during lunch yesterday (due to an extremely hot pepper incident), so I am in the waiting stage to see if I end up with the ickiness. Boo to that!

Sounds like our weekend race plans may be Ken-sided this weekend. I am only slightly devastated 😦 I wonder if I can get him to go to Trader Joes….hmmmm. Here is to seeing what the day holds…

Pretty Days and Bear Cubs

Good Hump Day Morning to you! Halfway there!

How was your Tuesday? We started off with a chilly 17 degrees but it warmed up to about 50 in the afternoon and was just an amazingly beautiful day.

We started off with some play time. Brooke loves that cornstarch/water mix. Her toys really enjoy playing in it 😉 Luckily, clean up isn’t too terrible.


Brooke took it upon herself to write her Christmas list out on the chalkboard. In order from top to bottom: Puppy, Race Car, Small Canoe, Puppy Treats. Glad she could translate those images for me 😉 Dont think we are quite ready for the puppy, but glad to see where her heart is!


Took some snack breaks. Not even joking, I didnt like Jarlsberg cheese until I was about 30 years old. Brooke adores it at 4. No big deal.


It was a bit chilly out and Brooke didnt want to bundle up for a trailer ride, so I hit the trainer for 50 minutes (35 of those at tempo) and then got in 10 minutes on the treadmill (about 1.25 miles of some quick running). I watched Wimbledon (the movie). It never gets old!


Post workout, Brooke and I had some lunch before setting out for some outside time. Brooke rode her bike down to the mailbox while I jogged with her. It was awesome.




Just a quick dip in the hot tub. My legs…they are still soooo tired!


Spent the afternoon playing on Brooke’s swing set before Ken made it home.

Because the weather was so gorgeous (cold, though=ski clothes!), we decided to take a trip on the quad up the hill to see some of the fire damage. It was crazy!



Deer butts!




Big highlight…Seeing a Momma bear and her 3 cubs!!!!

It was hard to get a picture…

Jasper took it upon himself to soak up some fireplace warmth. Rough job.



Worked on Ken’s legs for a bit before calling it a night!

Now we are on to Wednesday things….Includes the dentist….ugh! At least it is the last time! Who needs to feel their face.
