A Peek In Our Week

Happy Sunday folks! As you know this is the part of the week were we recap what we've done through out the week and some of  the new things we tried. I don't know about you but one of our favorite things about reading blogs is learning about new products. We've tried a lot of new things because you guys had recommended them. So here's how our week went down.

Sunday I did 4 miles before work, 3 miles on Monday, 5 miles on Tuesday, 10 miles on Wednesday, 3 miles on Thursday. I hadn't done a double digit run for a while  and it felt good.   Saturday it was a bit rainy, so I did an hour on the treadmill.   ~L

I'm still keeping up with the Goofy training plan. After a very sore hip last week I thought I was going to have to modify my runs, but I didn't. I got all the mileage in. Did 4 miles on Monday and Wednesday and the big 9 miles on Friday.  I have an appointment on Monday to get another cortisone shot in my hip. ~M

Other Stuff:

Friday I didn't run because I had to take a recertification class for CPR/AED and First Aid so I can stay up to date with my ACE certification.  Not only is this useful for my personal training, but it is necessary for me to have it for my job as a flight attendant.  A few weeks ago I had a major scare with a passenger on a flight. Luckily we landed safely and she could seek medial care. But boy was that scary! ~L

After my class on Friday I had a dinner party with some friends and played some games. It was so nice to catch up since everyone is always so busy with work.

                                                 Here are the yummy desserts they brought.  ~L

I've mentioned a few times about how I do not like donuts and the thought of Krispy Kreme's make my stomach turn, well all summer I have been seeing commercials for the Oreo Cookie Donut at Dunkin Donuts and I admit I was intrigued. So Friday morning after my 9 mile run, my mom and I went to Dunkin Donuts to try it out.

Final verdict, it wasn't all that. Nothing about it screamed "Oreo".   ~M

One thing I did find quite yummy last week were these Yasso bars!

These are frozen yogurt bars that come in a variety of flavors. I had really wanted to try the mint chocolate chip but I couldn't find them at the store I went to so I decided to try the salted caramel.
The salted caramel certainly did not disappoint! ~M


  1. OK, you got me on the Yasso bars. I see they are in stores around me so guess what I'm looking for next week :)

  2. Check out the mint chocolate chip and let me know how they are! I cant seem to find them around here!

  3. I forgot about the Yasso bars - thanks for the reminder, as I have been wanting to try them!

  4. Those cupcakes look amazing! And I am with you, Krispy Kreme donuts are nasty! Great job to both of you this week!

  5. Yasso bars sound quite tasty and the photo of those cupcakes.....just send one right over to me! I love cake!

  6. ouch cortisone shots in your hip-that can't feel good. Hope you have a better week!

  7. Those cupcakes look yummy! I'm not a huge fan of Dunkin Donuts, but I'd probably be tempted to try the Oreo one as well. The Yasso bars look good!

  8. Those Yasso Bars look tasty! I enjoy donuts, though I rarely eat them.

  9. Those yogurt bars look delicious. I'll have to look for them!

  10. First of all the cupcakes look amazing. Second, I'm obsessed with Yasso bars, my favorite flavor is the mint chocolate chip!!!

  11. Good to know that the Oreo donut isn't all that. Years ago I saw a greeting card that had a front with all donuts and the inside said, "Donuts are hips in larva form." That totally turned me off donuts! Sometimes I make my own baked donuts but other than that I don't eat them.
