Fitness Friday - 7/22

Hi there! Long time no see. Yes, we are all still alive over here.

This week, I've dealt with a good bit of mouth pain. Both teeth that were filled within the last year have decided to cause trouble and both need to be filled the same dang time. I told my dentist to just pull all my bottom teeth and give me dentures but he convinced me that's not the answer nor the solution I am looking for. Dramatic much? Yes. Tooth pain is no joke.

Yesterday, I had one tooth fixed and on Tuesday I'll have the second. I don't care, as long as this goes away and I can eat normal food again, I'll be happy!

Know how to lose those last five pesky baby weight pounds? Have teeth issues...or get a virus. At this point, I'm not sure which one is worse!

On Saturday morning, I met up with my running buddy Heather for a quick run around town. Jason was working nights so in order to be respectful of his time and sleep schedule, I decided to cut my run short. It was still a good run despite the circumstances and I'm grateful I was able to get the run in at all!

After church on Sunday evening, Brayden and I took a little walk around the neighborhood....

...and within minutes, he was out!

We did the same thing again on Monday evening!

Only this time, my friend Kim joined us for the walk. It was a gorgeous evening and the sunset was beautiful!

On Wednesday morning (before my mouth pain became too unbearable), I woke up early before work and set out on a three mile run.

I decided since it wasn't as hot the day before due to rain, the morning would be "cooler". Wishful thinking - 94% humidity...ugh.

The run wasn't as quick as I wanted it to be and I had to stop for a few walk breaks during the last mile.

All done!

In non-running related news, a friend from my running group and her mom stopped by to visit me at work this week. They gave Brayden this beautiful gift - it's a hand-stitched Mickey Mouse quilt! 

We are all big Disney fans so they know how much this blanket means to me! Also, it was gifted to us in a Disney parks shopping bag...isn't that too funny?! They sure know me well! I know Brayden will love his Mickey Mouse quilt, too!

That's all for this week! I'm crossing my fingers for a mouth-pain-free weekend! Have a great one!! :)


  1. Yikes, sorry about the mouth pain! I can't imagine what that must be like.
    That quilt is adorable! Brayden sure does look like he's enjoying his walks!

  2. The quilt is so cute! Sorry about the mouth pain, that is the worst!
