Weekend Whoas!

We had a great weekend at home.  Saturday morning we went out to the farm to grind hay and feed cows.  Kallahan and I stayed in the pickup while Keeler and Tyler handled the chores.  Kallahan and I would typically stay at home but I'm glad we didn't.  It was so fun to watch Keeler help his daddy.  
Kallahan didn't mind staying in the pickup as long as he was eating. :)  Once I ran out of snacks, I let him up in the driver's seat and he pretended to drive.  He would wave at the tractor every time they passed.  It was so stinkin' cute to watch!
 Is it me or does my 16 month old look practically like a 24 month old in this picture?  
On Saturday this handsome cowboy took me out for an early Valentine's Day!  
Granny came to our house to watch the little cowboys. Tyler and I went out for a nice quiet dinner, a quick run to Target and then to the movies.  We saw Identity Thief.  It was hilarious and made for a great date movie - 2 thumbs up!  The movie was sold out and all the seats were basically taken so we ended up with the last 2 seats together but on the front row on the far side.  Both our necks were pretty sore by the end of the movie.  We had to laugh because this is just our luck, we finally go to the movies after four years and this is our experience.  Aside from that it was so nice to get away for a while and enjoy the time together.  We really should do it more often but I just hate to the leave the little cowboys on the weekends after working all week. 
On Sunday, Keeler and I went to Sunday school.  
We only had three students in our class.  I think a lot of illness is still going around. :(  
The rest of the day was spent playing, watching TV, relaxing and enjoying family time.  
We also got Keeler's Valentines made for school.  He has one final touch to add and then I'll post a picture.      
I don't have a lot to report on my "best shape" progress.  I was actually reluctant to even do a post...but as promised here goes:  
I only managed to workout 3 days this past week. 
Monday: Ran 2 Miles (okay)
Tuesday:  Ran 2 Miles (most painful run EVER)
Friday:  30 Day Shred
My hip/groin pain was just getting worse by Tuesday.  When I went out to run my shins were even on fire.  I thought maybe part of the problem was the mileage on my shoes.  I read online and then my MIL also said around 300 miles max on a pair...I was getting close if not over so I ordered a new pair and decided to lay off while I waited for them to arrive.  
My shoes came in on Friday.  By then my pain was not as sharp but as much as I wanted to go for a run I just knew it was too soon.  My mom said her doctor told her that dancing is good for a pulled groin muscle so I did the next thing...a workout video.  It went okay and Kallahan loved it!  
The hardest part of this injury is the depression it has caused.  It just makes me so mad because I was finally at that place: conditioned, running more effortlessly and now I've hit a wall.  I don't know if the May half is going to pan out - I don't even want to think about it.  
This week my goal is to eat better, do some cross training and attempt a few easy miles.  Again, my running group has been great at helping keep me positive.  I know I injured myself trying to speed train.  When I'm back training {because I will be back}, it's not going to be about speed at all.  Lesson learned: this white girl is not fast.  I just want to finish the race!
My sister and I did make a pact late in the week.  No eating after dinner.  Anyone else have a terrible night grazing habit?!  
I hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Kelley don't get mad at not being able to work out as planned. You look terrific just the way you are. Glad you enjoyed your early Valentine's date. Those date nights are necessary.
