Go Run and Play

Happy to report I am FINALLY back to exercising 5 days a week.  Spent one of the 5 days doing 30 minutes stairclimber, 100 squats and some weights.  Woke up the next day sore which tells me I need to incorporate this workout into my regular routine.

I had a day off from work yesterday so I spent the day cleaning and  organizing.

My job requires me to be on my feet for the majority of the day.   I am in no way complaining, in fact,  I love this aspect of my career.The reason I mention it, though, is that I was amazed at the difference in my run yesterday.

I ran 6.50 miles and it just felt easier.  I guess I don’t realize how much being on my feet all day tires me out.

In other news, I have really been enjoying my December.  A group of us went to see the Nutcracker at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia and it did not disappoint!

See?!! It was amazing!

My dad used to take us to a local production in Wilmington (Hotel DuPont) when my sister and I were little  girls and I just love it. So, we are making it a yearly tradition.

What else?

Well, I have discovered a love for theater.  Who knew? I went to see West Side Story and had no idea how much I would enjoy it.  I had an opportunity to see Wicked and declined and now I am kicking myself.   I am currently making a bucket list of plays I want to see.  Next up is Gypsy.

Got to celebrate my nephew’s 9th birthday with him at Friendly’s.  While I am not a fan of the food I do love the ice cream….and the company.

 

Last night was dinner with friends- great food and great conversation.  We laughed, got a little serious, and laughed some more.

Tonight I am going to see a band play with my cousins and sister. This is much overdue and should be fun and eventful.

See, told you December has been a good month!
