Another February Run In Shorts

Happy Wednesday! This week seems to be flying by for me. Does anyone else feel this way? It’s currently foggy out here in Jersey but the thermometer is supposed to go over 70 degrees so I’ll take the fog! Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday started out pretty typical with a nice early alarm before getting ready for work. For breakfast, I had scrambled eggs and toast once again. When I checked the weather and the temperature was in the lower 50s before 7 am. That meant no coat for me! It was amazing to not need a coat in February.

During the day, the sun was shining and all I wanted to do was see if my laptop could get wifi outside so I could enjoy the amazing weather. After work, I practically ran to my car so that I could get home and run. It was another February run in shorts! 4 easy miles before doing an arms and abs Blogilates video. These are fantastic if you want some shorter videos. Each on was about 10 minutes and the burn is real.

Alex had a late meeting so it was just me at home. I turned on a podcast while I got some things crossed off my to do list. When it came time for dinner, I wasn’t starving (probably because I had a spoon or two of peanut butter while making my lunch…) so I ended up just roasting some potatoes to enjoy. This time I topped them with some nutritional yeast and my usual ketchup and hot sauce. The yeast didn’t have a huge cheese flavor but that could definitely be because I had condiments on top of it. While I ate, I turned on Chicken Little because I’m clearly a mature 22 year old.

When Alex got home, we hung out a bit and then I finished Before I Go to Sleepย by S.J. Watson. The entire time, my thoughts kept switching on how I thought the book would end. It kept me interested the entire time which was amazing. If you are looking for a thriller then check out this book. It’s also a movie so now I want to get my hands on it to compare the two. Once that was finished, I headed to bed.

Question of the day: Is the weather unusually nice by you for February.

    1. Truth be told, I ended up holding my shirt for about 3 miles since I was so hot. That’s exactly what I’m doing! I know it’ll get cold again soon so I’m trying not to think we are fully done with winter yet.

  1. I know weโ€™re getting some cooler weather tomorrow, so I am just basking in the glow of these early spring temps. I havenโ€™t done any running just yet, but I will definitely start doing more runs as the weather gets warmer! Iโ€™m too much of a baby to run when itโ€™s cold ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. we officially hit 77 here yesterday, but I saw 79 at my house. Today is one of those days where we had the high of the day already and it’s going to get colder as the day goes on. I loved yesterday and had the windows open and spent time outside. The boys even rode their bikes to the playground after they finished their homework. I’m ready for the spring temps to last longer than a day

    1. I hate days that get colder instead of warmer. Hopefully it’s a steady decline and nothing drastic for you! What a nice treat for the boys to get to ride bikes in February. When spring temps last longer than a day or two then I’ll be a happy camper.

  3. I can’t believe how amazing this weather is. I hope the temps don’t drop again but knowing Connecticut I feel like we still have one or two snows coming our way before spring officially hits. i enjoyed the Before I Go To Sleep movie even though in my opinion the book is better (i feel like that is always the case!).

    1. That’s exactly how I feel about the weather! Something tells me we have one more snow for this winter and I’m hoping it doesn’t come too late. I think it’ll be a good thriller movie like Girl On The Train was.

  4. Our weather has been crazy too! It’s warm but it’s been raining so much that our yard is mudd. I had to give Makena a bath after her quick playtime the other day!

  5. It has been crazy warm here lately and we got out yesterday in shorts and T-shirts! It was fantastic! BUT–now we’re under a giant rain cloud for the next 4 days straight so I’m already wishing we could go back to yesterday’s sunny warm weather!

    Have a great rest of your day girl!

  6. That’s pretty amazing to me that it was so warm for you yesterday!! While you were running in shorts, I’m pretty sure it didn’t even get above freezing here all day. I think we are supposed to get snow today or tomorrow so it is bone-chillingly cold with that pre-storm weather.
