TGIF

Wow! Where did the week go?? I normally don't say this, as the weeks here seem to last forever, but this week flew by. I feel like I am so far behind on my blog reading! I definitely miss reading about your daily adventures and I look forward to getting caught up.

I have been really busy with hair, which is a blast and always makes me super happy. I cut Addie's hair this week. It was getting so long and needed a little bit of a trim. She did SOOO good and might be the happiest baby I have ever been around. Seriously, I hope when Jon and I have a child, our baby is as good and as precious as Addison.


What a precious baby she is!!

I have also started walking/jogging again, which of course, we all know how exhausting it can be to start that up again. I'm POOPED! I didn't realize how out of shape I really was until I jogged on Tuesday night! Ouch ;)

I found a great application on my iPhone called,
Run Keeper.

It's fantastic. It tracks my mileage, time and maps out exactly where I have jogged. I am so happy to have found this, because I wasn't sure my little $6 pedometer was accurate. The Run Keeper is super accurate and it has motivated me to jog, because I know exactly how far and how fast I do so. If you don't have this app and are a jogger/walker/runner/biker, definitely grab it. It's FREE!! I think you'll love it.

I did take a couple of pictures from my jog with Jonny the other night.





I like the kind of jog where you run, stop take pictures, run, stop take pictures..... that's my kind of exercise! But in all seriousness, I am just out of shape and getting used to these new insoles so I definitely took every opporunity to stop and catch a breather.

I look forward to running so much more now, because I am not in constant pain from the darn shin splints. I am SO thankful for these new insoles, they have really made a huge difference and I will never go without them again. I've gotten in about 20 miles this week with walking in the mornings and jogging at night with Jon. Not too bad for the first week.

Anyway.....Since we LOVE movies and love sharing the good ones, before I make like a baby and head out of blogland, I'll leave you with a few movie recommendations. Hope you all enjoy.

Duplicity
Excellent flick! I'd briefly summarize it, but I'll leave it up to Imdb, to do that: It is about....

"A pair of corporate spies who share a steamy past hook up to pull off the ultimate con job on their respective bosses."

I just love Clive Owen, I think he's great. He and Julia Roberts both do a great job in this movie. Rent it, I think you'll love it.

AND

The Last House on the Left
Suspenseful much! Another Imdb summary for ya:

"After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang led by a prison escapee unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims -- a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics."

I LOVE suspenseful, scary movies. Jon, not so much, but he really enjoyed this movie! Check it out.

I hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend!!!

See you Monday.

I am downloading that app right now. I had one similar to that but it keeps track in km and being the american that I am I have no idea how far a kilometer is! :)

Awesome job getting back into running! I'm just started walking/exercising again too (i just restarted an accountability thing on my blog=))!

We just watched duplicity last night=) I fell asleep but it was because I was so tired, ha! It was really good, Hubby said so too, we're going to have to watch it again, haha (good thing it was only a dollar ha=))!

I used to run six miles a day and miss it terribly, but after breaking my ankle and having surgery, my running days are over. I love the photos you took on your jog. What a beautiful place to run!

Kelley said...

way to go with the running! I need to start! it's still in the 100s though, so just tooo hot for me!

I just finished my first run using RunKeeper. Thank you so much for sharing this one! It was awesome! Well, not the run, that was pitiful and painful. But the app is very cool. I love the map and seeing the statistics. I look forward to hopefully seeing some improvement. I was doing so well before we PCSed and it's such a drag having to build back up again.
