I'm still struggling/muddling my way through Insanity. It is ROUGH! I'm not nearly as tough as I thought I was, but I'm going to be!! Right now, I can only do some of the exercises about 75% but I think that will get better with repetition. At least that's what I'm telling myself :-)
I wasn't going to run this Saturday morning, then I got an email about The Stronger 5k. The race proceeds were to be distributed to The Convoy of Hope, an agency equipped to provide help and hope to people in need, especially through disaster relief. They are currently on the ground here in Oklahoma helping those who were affected by the recent tornadoes here. The race directors have decided to donate 100% of the registration monies to the "Disaster Relief for the Oklahoma Tornado Victims". I couldn't pass up a chance to do what I love--RUN--while supporting the great state of Oklahoma!! So, I'll be running that in the morning, doing Insanity, then I've planned a date with the mister for Saturday afternoon/evening. It's going to be a busy weekend for us!!
This month, I participated in something called Foodie Pen Pals, organized by Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean This was my first time to participate and it was really fun!! I received my items from Traci in Ohio. Here's what was in my box:
A white chocolate, cranberry, walnut granola (my new favorite), chocolate-toffee covered pretzels, Esther Price chocolates, Mikesells puff corn and potato chips, coffee from Boston Stoker and a fruity sangria tea plus Justin's maple almond butter and chocolate hazelnut butter. What was unique about my box is most of the items were local to Ohio.
I really enjoyed the Foodie Pen Pals. It was a fun way to meet new people and try some new things. If you're interested in participating, check out Lindsay's blog for details!
Consequently, both Traci and my recipient contacted me to check my well being during the recent tornado outbreak. That was really unexpected and so sweet of them!!
I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!!
