|Maddux loves Halloween just as much as I do :-)|
After our walk we kicked off our "Pumpkin Day" (I named it that. You'll see why.) First we got supplies to carve a pumpkin. Who knew how hard pumpkin carving could be. Major props to my mom for always making it look so easy.
|Boo! I mostly did the one on the left. Notice the detail.|
I attempted making pumpkin pasta to continue with our pumpkin theme, but it ended up being a little bland. I think from now on I will use my pumpkin to make baked goods instead. Can't go wrong there!
Sunday was a pretty lazy day, which is fine seeing it's a day of rest and all. I was pretty tired (must have been from all that pumpkin fun on Saturday) so I decided to take it easy and try out a workout I adapted (because her's was too hard) from Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers. Turns out, this workout was not so easy.
See those parts where it says 1 minute at 8.5 and 9? Yeah, that didn't happen. 8 kicked my butt so much that I figured I'd leave it there. Also, the 7.0 incline? Not an easy way to catch your breath. I definitely worked up a sweat with this one! Good grief.
This week I'm hoping to get a few miles in. It's nice not having to run, but now that the obligation is gone I find myself really wanting to get out there! The fact that I'm only 28 miles away from my next Nike+ level is pretty good motivation, too! My goal is to get it before November :-)
