Running stats for the week of April 25th - May 1st... We missed our nice, warm, sunny weather this past week. We managed to get out and enjoy the good days when we could, but the ground was so soaked from all the rain that Roarke and I didn't get to sit in the backyard at all. Bummer. Remi is battling an infection on his belly. He is on his second round of antibiotics, but it doesn't seem to be bothering him any just super hard to get healed up. Always something with that dog, but we still love him to pieces. I've been trying to get up early before Dan leaves for work to get a run in before R-man wakes up for the day, but man I am just not a morning person when it comes to working out. I would much rather do my runs at 9 o'clock at night if I had my way. I'll keep trying to change my ways though.

Donuts! Donuts! Donuts!

The popularity of Pinterest is kind of a dying trend I think, but I still like to look through there for ideas on meals, the house, etc. I kept coming across these recipes for baked donuts and thought to myself how do people make those! Come to find out they are extremely simple to make and when you do make them people are pretty impressed! All you need is a donut pan and some recipes!!! So far I have made the following...

Lemon Blueberry Baked Donuts

Chunky Monkey Baked Donuts

Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Donuts

Strawberry Lemonade Baked Donuts

Maple Bacon Baked Donuts

Greek Yogurt Baked Donuts with Chocolate Glaze and Sprinkles

Lemon Baked Donuts with Fresh Strawberry Glaze

... You might say we are a little donut obsessed around our house!!! Now... before you freak out thinking that I'm eating all these delicious creations think again. Usually I don't even try them! They all go straight to work with Dan for his co-workers or to training for the SWAT Team. I love hearing all the wonderful comments when Dan gets home :) Now... go buy a couple of donut pans and start impressing people with your donut making skills!

Running stats for April 18th - April 24th... Behind on the blogging once again. How does that happen really? No running for this past week, but I did get some walks in with Remington. Roarke and I spent a lot of time outside, but mainly swinging at the park or just hanging out in the backyard. Out of the 7 years that Dan and I have lived in this house this is by far the most time I have spent in our backyard... and that's just in a two week period. Glad I have gotten the chance to enjoy it with Roarke.

Running stats for the week of April 11th - April 17th... Oh my goodness could the weather this past week have been any better!?! Talk about gorgeous! We were outside pretty much every single day enjoying it! Remi got in 7 walks this week... count 'em... SEVEN! I don't know if that has ever happened in his entire life! By the end of the week I think he was a little exhausted so today he is taking it easy and recovering from so much exercise. Roarke has loved going on walks outside. I love watching him take everything in. And the best thing is the fresh air wears him out, which is always a win win for me! Running went well for me this week. I'm able to run for longer distances and my endurance is getting better. Hoping to hit a 4 miler this upcoming week. It has been a long long while since I was able to run that far! Hope everyone has been out and about enjoying all this sunshine! Could spring/summer actually be here to stay! Let's hope so!

Week #44


Weight: 17 lbs 4 oz

Life with the R-man is busy busy busy! He is now pulling himself up on everything and cruising around while holding on to tables and furniture for balance. Nothing is safe in our house anymore. I feel like I'm picking up after a mini tornado. He enjoys opening and closing doors, turning light switches on and off, and helping with laundry. He keeps me on my toes constantly. Eating anything is a complete disaster most days. He likes to do this by myself for the most part and loves eating chunks of veggies, fruits, and cereal. I usually just let him do his thing and then clean up after all is said and done. Roarke says Momma, Dada, and bye bye! He loves playing peek-a-boo and that guarantees a smile. Since the weather has gotten warmer we have been venturing outside almost everyday. Recently we discovered that Roarke hates grass so anytime we are just hanging out I have to put a towel or sheet down to protect him from the dreaded green stuff! Haha! He is super easy going still, but wants what he wants when he wants it so we do deal with frustration a lot because he usually can't communicate to us how to help him. It is hard to believe that in a few months I'll have a one year old! Holy cow where has the time gone!
