Brr, it's cold out there. Okay, so maybe it's not as cold as where we used to live but the temperatures sure did drop last night. I'm using it as a sign though that I really need to get into action to purchase my fall/winter running clothes. I've been wanting to get some running gloves for some time now but haven't really taken the jump to pick one out. Today, I was so cold I went to RoadRunner online (I have a VIP membership) and found a pair. I have really small hands, usually I can fit into kids gloves, but unfortunately it's hard to find running gloves made for kids. I figured if the gloves are too big the hubby might get them in the long run, which he can add to his collection. But (shout out to Natalie), I purchased the Brooks Pulse Lite Running Gloves in black/gray. Unfortunately they didn't have XS but they did have S- hoping they fit. I chose these because the reviews suggested that they were lightweight but warm, thermal so you a bit cooler in beginning but they breath when your body temperature goes up, and because the forefinger has a tech grip and the thumb opens up so that one can use an ipod or cell phone. I'll let you all know what I think when I get them in about a week.
So yesterday I wasn't feeling good, I seem to be getting a lot of headaches here in this house - hope that doesn't mean anything bad. So, I took the day off from running. I did manage to sweat a lot (yuck!) while raking leaves around our house. I think I have a good portion of it done (about an acre) but we just have to find bags to put them in. I wanted to get those really large pumpkin leaf bags but they were sold out last night. These bags aren't my favorite but they do hold a lot of leaves so I'm hoping to only buy a few and get all the leaves in them. Crossing fingers. Then hopefully my husband will have decided on a lawn mower and we can just mulch from that for the rest of the season. Then I also took a .57mi walk with the furry baby down the road to sit in a little park on the lake we live on - something different for fresh air since it was in the lower 70's. Nice!
Other than that, I've just been running around the house getting little things done like laundry and etc. We also got up our blinds in the household which was a workout in its self. Also I made orange cauliflower soup - yum! So, I hope that pretty soon we will get into a normal swing of things now that we are settling more and more. Now I am trying to decide on the best running pants and running vest/jacket.

Okay, so I have to admit I'm getting a bit spoiled being a corporate wife at the moment. Usually I don't talk about it much but I am a housewife and I do a bit of work on the side to keep my sanity. But, I love being here in a hotel where there is a lot of people going in and out. Plus, I love having a gym and pool in the same building.
(Dinner a few nights ago that I didn't get to post yet...)
(My hotel suite Kitchen...)
Today's massively exciting events:
Morning I got up early thanks to my husband having to still drive an hour to work seeing that our hotel is a distance from his office. Guess that's what we get for living in the outskirts of a bigger city. Usually I love mornings but the people above our room for some reason had a vacuum and decided that 10:45P.M. was a good time for cleaning. (Which included moving furniture in the entire room and then banging things around...) Got him off to work in record time and then I was free for the day.
Breakfast: two bites of waffle, two slices of toast with a little vegan butter and blueberry spread. Nothing exciting but it did the job. Oh and the necessary coffee too.
Snack: a few bites of bagel before workout.
Gym Time: 3 miles in 35 minutes. Felt great to sweat! When I finished an older employee was walking down the hallway and asked if I was tired. And I said a bit but nothing the pool couldn't cure. He laughed and said I should be very tired. Guess he was watching through the windows? Ah well, he was a cute old man... ^_^ I walked next door to pool and did a few laps in lukewarm water.... Then i gave up and jumped into the spa for 30 minutes. (That's working out right?)
Lunch: Leftover Aztec Salad, mixed organic greens, two small tortillas, and *cough* two cookies...
Sunbathing with the furry baby outside while reading. Then I worked a little on the laptop.
Snack: Chinese Vegetarian Mushroom Strips- hot! Just a little.
Dinner: Vegan sausage, zucchini and... haven't decided yet... Hoping to cook this outside.
How was your day today?
