Morning! It’s the first day of Fall!!
I am so excited about this! I know that I have said it before, but I really love fall. Some of the blogs that I read have put together Fall Bucket Lists, so I wanted to share some of the things that I wanted to do this year.
Fall Bucket List:
- Make some homemade chili
- go hiking before it gets too cold
- carve pumpkins with my niece and nephew
- make pumpkin muffins with butter cream icing
- Go for a bike ride
- drink (or make) a fall pumpkin latte
- make smores at a bonfire
- Make my pumpkin mousse cheesecake
- Go to a pumpkin patch
- Take some fall pictures
Well, there you have it! I think these are pretty easy things to do, so I am excited about marking them off.
What do you have planned today?? I have to work until noon, and then I am finally going to put out the fall decorations in the house. I also need to finish mowing the lawn….I was having an issue with one of the wheels on the back of the push mower, but thank goodness an awesome lady I work with asked her husband what it might be and it was a simple bolt that needed to be tightened. I kind of figured that was the problem, but what I didn’t know was that as you tighten, you have to hold the other side of the bolt to do so. Or basically you are just turning it round and round.
I tell ya, running this past week was great! I busted out of the 8 mile a week range and couldn’t be more excited about it. I wanted to make it to 15, but ended up doing 13! That’s 5 more than usual! I am going to rest my freakishly fast legs today. Really, they are fast.
I wanted a smoothie this morning so I threw together the following:
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup of frozen cherries
- 1 tbsp of ground flax
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 scoop of protein powder
Got to get ready for work! Have a great day!!
