Happy Fat Tuesday!

Today is Fat Tuesday, the last day of Mardi Gras. Which also means the last day for any king cake related stuff for me. That's a good thing. I've indulged quite a bit this month & it needs to stop. Summer's coming! Well, maybe. This morning is cold, cloudy & windy with a wind chill in the 20's. Yes I know compared to a lot of the country this is warm but it's soooo not warm for me! 

Friday night was opening night of the LSU Baseball season. Of course that means it's cold. I wore layers & stayed surprisingly warm. Allie & Jordan sat with us.

I started getting cold in the 7th inning so I went home. 

As cold as it was Friday night, it was hard to believe how warm it was Saturday. We got up & ran errands & I went for a run when I got home. 


I was a little faster than normal. 5 mi. in 52 mins. I had on shorts & a tank top & when I was finished I was sweating like it was the middle of the summer & my poor face was beet red. Crazy weather. I wanted to run 6 miles but the LSU game was at 2:00 & I knew I didn't have time to go 6, eat, shower & get dressed in time so 5 it was.

We went to the game & left early to go to Mass. LSU was winning like 8-1 so we thought the game was in hand. The ended up winning something like 8-5 so it got a little interesting. 

We don't ever usually go out for Valentine's. Dean grilled steaks & asparagus. I splurged on a "good" bottle of wine at Christmas so we drank it.

Paraduxx was one of the vineyards we visited when we were in Napa. It was really good. 

Sunday my plan was to basically do nothing. It was supposed to be cool & windy so I was planning to skip the game. It was actually warmer than it was supposed to be & a little muggy. I skipped the game anyway.Cindy texted that she wanted to go for a walk so I went with her  & Sheri.  

After my walk, my parents came over for awhile. When Dean got home from the game we went to Caliente. We didn't go at all last weekend! 

My plan was to run Monday. The temp was going to be in the high 50's so it would be perfect. Plus, it was supposed to start raining & be cold for a couple of days. Well, the alarm went off & I couldn't get out of bed. Not only that, when it was my regular time to get up, I couldn't get out of bed. I just couldn't get going at all. Soooo, that meant I got up this morning & ran on the treadmill. I'm very thankful to have the treadmill option I just don't like it. I can't seem to get the speed right. I know that I run 5 miles in less than an hour but when I set the speed I feel like I'm running way faster. It's very weird.

So I ran 3.1 miles in 40 minutes! I'm not fast but I'm usually way faster than that. I'm focusing on the fact that I did it & I burned 364 calories!

  1. It is so cold here, and it is supposed to be 24 for the high on Thursday!! I hate it and am ready to move to the beach. ;) We are going to the LSU vs Bama games in April because they are playing in B'ham about a mile from my BIL's house. Cohen is so excited! (Unless he ends up with a game that day and then we can't go!)
