Turn up! Turn down for what?

That’s what my Smoodents say all day long.  This last week before winter break has been on 10, but in a good way. 

Staff have been able to loosen up with potlucks, ugly sweater contests, secret santa and basketball games. These chicas were in the holiday spirit.


Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

Besides my monochromatic,  classroom Christmas tree, I chose to display my holiday spirit with a glitter shellac manicure.  Juicing has done wonders for my nails.  Weak, brittle nails are a common side effect of thyroid hormone imbalances. 

The running world has been pretty slow.   My December average has been 12 miles a week.  I anticipated the decrease in miles due to the cold weather and shorter days. 

I skipped the Reindeer Romp last week.  Repeating a race I’ve already done in cold rain is pointless, especially for a 4k.  Instead, my time was spent with 7 miles on the treadmill, followed by weights.  I’ve done great with incorporating weights into my regimen at least twice a week.

Speaking of weights, I was able to check out a muscle definition class taught by one of my 5 fifteener spin partners, Emelia.  She spared no mercy and did an excellent job. 

I hope the Cards spare no mercy on Miami as I help cheer them on at the Russell Athletic Bowl game! 

Turn Up!

    I thought it was “turn’t up” or is that another thing?
