TGIF!

This one is short  and sweet! Kind of like me only I am not short.

I worked three days in a row this week, which I know to most of you isn't much, but since I usually never work more than 2 in a row it seemed like a lot!  They were very busy days and work and I am beat.  I was hoping to sneak in a run somewhere in there but it just wasn't to be, so when I got home from work, I put a movie on for the kids and hopped in the elliptical for 30 minutes.  Not nearly as satisfying as a run, but helpful and a workout.  Ahhh and I feel so much better for it. 

This weekend will be pretty light with the running since I have a half NEXT weekend.  YAY I am so excited.  The weather forecast right now is saying a high of 78 and a low of 48.  Whoa doggies that would be twenty degrees cooler than it was last year for that race.  I am keeping my fingers crossed for that!  The race is at 7 in the morning, so if all stays as is it could possibly be pretty bearable.  I won't however hold my breath.  I know by next Saturday it could be 100, this is Montana  and July after all.  

More good news, I don't have to cook tonight as I am cleaning out the fridge and we are eating leftovers! I have lemon basil chicken, meatballs, and hot dogs that all need to be ate up.  I hate wasting food,  I also really hate cooking. It just seems like such a chore. You make a mess, you eat, you clean it up.  Start over.  So monotonous.  I just don't get why some people love to cook or bake for that matter.   I just keep thinking of all the things I would rather be doing. like running, or reading, or just not being in the kitchen. I do however like to eat, and I like to eat relatively healthy so I cook and I definetly appreciate the efforts of others.  I am always so happy when somebody cooks for me :)  Anyone else with me on this one?  If you like to cook, tell me why so I have a little inspiration next time.

Have great weekend everyone, I am off to get some leftovers warmed up!  Any big plans for the weekend?  We are going to hit a parade and then maybe I will get my man to go out with some friends tomorrow night and find a babysitter!

  2. Ah yes - I hate cooking so much that I am doing Nutrisystem just so I don't have to do it.

  3. I love baking. Hate cleaning.
    Leftover night when I was a kid was called must-goes. As in everything must go. It's mildly clever.

  4. I like to cook one or two days a week and make A LOT extra so that I have tons of leftovers. I hate it, especially in the heat. Doesn't make sense to me to turn on an oven or stove.

    I have a 10k tomorrow! I signed up for some small races this summer with the intention of doing some speed work. That didn't happen. Tomorrow should be interesting to say the least!

  5. Ha! I tend to cook and leave the mess for my husband to clean up! And he usually does! I lucked out, I know :) I hate grocery shopping with all my kids in tow more than I hate cooking, though.

    Hope you have a lovely week in anticipation of your half... and great weather!

  6. That weather for the race sounds magical.

    I have a ridiculously busy weekend planned, but full of activity and fun. Have a great one!

  7. Sometimes cooking can be tiring, but I do really enjoy it. It lets me be "creative" in the kitchen and I know that making your own meals is (usually) healthier. I always try to make meals that will last us for 2-3 nights so that I don't have to cook EVERY night. Also, I am very thankful that my husband will clean up afterwards! If you ever have a bug chunk of time and feel like cooking a lot (I know, rare for me too) you could always cook and freeze a few meals so that they are easy to thaw out and cook later! Good luck with your half next weekend!

  10. That would be great temps for a half! I try to stay away from long distances in the summer since it is usually so hot and humid here! I would love to cook if someone else could plan for me! But let's be real that's not going to happen any time soon!! Have fun with your leftovers!

  11. Ha! If i had any leftovers, I'd be joining your party! I LOVE to eat, but not so interested in cooking- especially with all the "helpers" I have :)

    Best wishes in your race next weekend!

  13. I actually don't love cooking, but since I'm a food freak I make almost everything homemade

  14. I LOVE not cooking dinner. We've had weddings every weekend for three weeks, so that's two dinners in a row I don't have to make...but then i get out of practice and don't ever want to cook. It's a vicious cycle.
