Hola! Did you see yesterday’s post about my plans for the month of March? I would say I started off right and had a good day yesterday! My mom and I went to Target, where thanks to Kelly and her couponing advice, I will be shopping a lot more often! We then went to Lee’s Hamburgers. YUM! if you are from the NOLA area, you know what I am talking about. if you aren’t….then sorry you are missing out! Lee’s makes the best hamburgers ever and they have been around forever (like, since my parents were little, now that’s a LONG time! )
It was so beautiful out we ate outside!
A burger, fries, and root beer later…you would think I would be too full for froyo. But, you would be wrong! We thought it was comical since Menchies is in the same shopping center, all we did was move down the building and eat outside there, too!
This my friends is NY style cheesecake with cherries, strawberries, and almonds! Heavenly goodness in a cup.
I seriously have terrible posture. I need to learn to sit up straight.
After the gloriousness of feeling so full I had to change my pants, I had the bright idea to go on a run. I WANTED to run, but my rock hard full of food stomach thought otherwise….but I did it anyway. it was so beautiful outside, the prettiness of the day was just calling out to me! I decided to run a quick three and see what kind of speed I had. I did great mile one, right at 9:00. Mile two is when my stomach started rebelling against the motion and I got a super sick feeling but still managed to run it in under 10:00. The third mile I was able to pick up the pace a bit. I even tried to throw up but couldn’t, I knew I would have felt better. oh well. Anyway, I managed to finish in 28:00! For someone on the verge of vomit, I was incredibly proud of myself!
After my run, I went inside to discover my dad was home, so my mom and I made him walk with us. they even jogged a little! We ended up doing 1.35 miles total. We ate dinner, watched American Idol (well, mom and I did!) and I went to bed! I would call that successful March day in more ways that one. Go me! Hopefully today will be a success as well, because tomorrow all the fun begins!
Bobby got the keys to the new house yesterday FINALLY, so tomorrow I meet him there and unload my car, then we will take one car up to our old house and the movers come Saturday morning! it will be a wild weekend for sure! I will take plenty of pictures for you though. I can’t wait to unpack in my new home! I am off to enjoy the day, have a great one!
QOTD: What are you doing this weekend?
I could go for a hamburger right about now! yum!! And wow for going for a run anyways with a full belly. I couldn’t have done it!!
thanks, it was tough!
Great job on the run! Isn’t it funny how sometimes when you feel the worst, you run the fastest? My fastest run this year came an hour after eating a huge lunch and cupcake. I almost didn’t run bc I was so sick to my stomach!
Yay for house keys! Excited for you!
yeah i was totally not expecting it!

Great run! My weekend plans involve working and a possible 5k.
oh good luck!
I did the Disney Princess 1/2 this weekend! You need to do this race if you haven’t. If you loved the Disney one in January you will love this one….plus wearing a tutu & a crown makes running more fun 🙂
oh I am so wearing a tutu and a tiara. I can’t wait!
This weekend I am running my final 20 miler of marathon training. It feels like my whole weekend revolves around the run, but it’s a 20 mile race with awesome friends, so I’m excited!
Mmm!! That burger looks SO GOOD!!! And then I saw the fro yo…. Even better!!! 🙂 Glad you got to enjoy the nice weather!!
thanks! too bad its raining now ha!
I’m so bad at running after I eat! I usually have to eat at least 2 hours before I run. Way to stick with it!
I usually do too or I get side cramps. it was so weird I didn’t!
You and your froyo! Love it!
Weekend plans…the in laws are coming to stay with us Saturday into Sunday. Got some fun things planned.
Good luck on your move!!!! Can’t wait to hear the re-cap of it all once you get settled.
