Snowmaggedon 2016 missed us completely — this time. But the cold air and wind didn’t. I hunkered down at home and spent Monday through Wednesday inside the house in joggers or leggings (except for getting that pesky mail and putting out the trash).
I got back on my #yogastreak. Poor Lola didn’t get walked much — most of the time it was too cold, and Thursday I just didn’t have time to walk her and get my run on so she lost out.
However, after writing Chester’s story, I was inspired to start doing a little indoor agility with her and Gizmo (yes, Gizmo will train for treats too) and she gets soooooo excited. Maybe I’ll get my husband to video us someday.

It was even colder this week than last. Well, technically maybe not, but we had those really cold temps all week long and the first few days of the week were insanely windy, too. Not only did I retreat to the treadmill on Tuesday, I put off grocery shopping until Thursday even though I was running out of bananas!
Then I didn’t buy enough bananas to last us to my next grocery store trip, and had to stop at Target after my long run Saturday.
I didn’t get enough steps in most of the days I wasn’t running, as obviously there were almost no dogwalks, but I did stay active.
I got a lot busier in the kitchen this week, too.
Sushi — again– ah, but this time we actually did go out for it! I wasn’t tired this week, although Mr. Judy was a bit, and we almost ordered in again because damn! Saturday was reallllly cold. Luckily I have a really ugly, really long, really warm down coat.
We rented “Woman in Gold” this weekend. I really enjoyed it! And Friday I went to see “Brooklyn” with a friend; I recommend that, too — which oddly reminded me of “Sweet Home Alabama”, even though they’re very different movies, and yet actually share many similarities.
Cooking with teff flour for my very first time. I used this pancake recipe, which I’d shared earlier on my facebook page, except I did add 1 tbsp coconut sugar and used almond milk instead of water. It was really filling! Hey, if it’s good enough for an elite runner . . . teff flour has a nice, light, nutty taste and now I’m trolling Pinterest for more recipes using it!
And no snow! I feel for everyone that got clobbered — been there, done that. And it’s not like we had great weather this week. But for me missing a snowstorm is always a good thing.
And that’s a wrap!
