Woman Weekend Warrior Syndrome

During my Saturday morning run, I couldn't help but think - I should start training for a marathon.  What is wrong with me!?  This was a 2 mile run, which included stopping to walk.  What about training for 10 miles or even 5 miles?  Nope, I jumped straight to marathon.  Total, typical "forcing the bloom" moment.  I really should have celebrated the fact I was running in the first place  and then moved on to a bigger goal, like 3 miles.  Sound familiar?  I know those woman weekend warriors are out there!

I spent most of the rest of the weekend stock piling food for the work-week.  We made a massive amount of homemade HUMMUS.  We made a batch with black olives and the another with green olives.  Froze some.  Very yummy.  We also made rice, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes for work-week dinners and lunches.  I also soaked and boiled some lima beans for later recipes.  My parents visited and they  made homemade crackers and a large oven-roasted turkey - great for leftovers and soup.  I felt like a squirrel preparing for winter.  That's what is takes these days as a new mama!
