Since training and running in my second half marathon this past December, I haven’t run over 3-4 miles. I don’t know if I’ve felt burnt out or tired from logging so many miles before? Do you ever feel like this after training for something? Anyway, yesterday, my love for running came back after completing a strong 4 mile run. I love the feeling of knowing you worked out hard! 🙂 Plus, I love when I am loving exercise. Exercise should be fun and enjoyable. It’s such a healthy thing to work your body out, but to give your mind a break, too! 🙂
After that, I hit up the grocery store for some good eats. Here’s what I bought.

Last night, we ate the best pasta, Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce from The Pioneer Woman. Try it! You won’t be disappointed. 🙂
Tonight, J and I had a steak salad with potatoes, onion, peppers, steak, and romaine.
Finally, one of the best surprises was checking the mail today.
My coat came and I love it! I even wore it tonight! It’s so soft and so warm.
I have always said I’d love to be a UPS person. How fun would it be to deliver packages to people who are anxiously awaiting their new purchase? 🙂
Question of the day: What job would you like to have that brightens someone’s day?
Did you go to the grocery store this week? What was your favorite thing you bought?
Do you ever get burnt out from exercise?
