During my Saturday morning run, I couldn’t help but think – I should start training for a marathon. What is wrong with me!? This was a 2 mile run, which included stopping to walk. What about training for 10 miles or even 5 miles? Nope, I jumped straight to marathon. Total, typical “forcing the bloom” moment. I really should have celebrated the fact I was running in the first place and then moved on to a bigger goal, like 3 miles. Sound familiar? I know those woman weekend warriors are out there!
I spent most of the rest of the weekend stock piling food for the work-week. We made a massive amount of homemade HUMMUS. We made a batch with black olives and the another with green olives. Froze some. Very yummy. We also made rice, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes for work-week dinners and lunches. I also soaked and boiled some lima beans for later recipes. My parents visited and they made homemade crackers and a large oven-roasted turkey – great for leftovers and soup. I felt like a squirrel preparing for winter. That’s what is takes these days as a new mama!
