Hey ya’ll! What’s shakin’. I’ve been super busy lately, but nothing exciting enough that you’d care to read about it. My eats have been repetitive and boring lately, too.
One exciting thing that happened last weekend was that I started my herb garden from seeds! I heard that they’re predicting the final frost around Mother’s Day. I counted backwards from then and decided that I’d better get my behind in gear if my cute little seedlings were going to be ready to go into the ground then. The weather was beautiful last Sunday so, after a trip to the local hardware store (coolest. place. ever) for supplies, I got down to business and got my hands dirty.
Here are the herbs I planted:
I also planted some Zinnias. I love these flowers, but had tons of trouble finding them in the nurseries last year so I decided to give them a go myself.
Fingers crossed that these seeds do better than my first attempt two summers ago. I didn’t do much research before that debacle so I’m hopeful that doing my homework pays off with this batch. I promise that I’m not turning UFC into a gardening blog, but you will probably see lots of progress pics of our outdoor endeavors as the summer goes on. That is, if anything survives. LOL
On another happy note, I weighed in at Weight Watchers a day early this week (so yesterday) and I was down 2.6! I was beyond thrilled. After last week’s big loss, I was half expecting a gain. That obviously wasn’t to be. My total post-pregnancy weight loss is now at 17lbs and counting.
I’m SUPER excited for my 5k on Saturday. I did my last pre-race run yesterday and I feel like I’m truly ready. My main goals are to 1) not walk at all and 2) finish in under 40 minutes. My pace with the stroller is around a 14 minute mile and without it’s around 12. I’m running sans stroller so I know that’s totally doable. Now I just have to decide on the most important things…a playlist and what to wear.
