It’s raining here. It has been raining here for a week. I am not kidding, no exaggeration! RAIN FOR A WEEK!!
Now it’s not only raining but cold too. I can deal with cold. I can deal with SOME rain. I cannot deal with a WEEK of rain and cold at the same time!
Which leaves me with one thing on my mind. Songs about rain……which is a song as well, so let’s start there:
- Songs About Rain
- Rainy Night In GA
- Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain
- Set Fire To The Rain
- Purple Rain
- Singing In The Rain
- She’s My Kind of Rain
- Have You Ever Seen The Rain
- Blame It On The Rain
- I Love A Rainy Night
- Fire and Rain
- November Rain
- Here Comes The Rain Again
And that’s just a few! Oh and yes I realize that I have a some what bizarre – all over the place taste in music. It’s ok, I like it that way! It pretty much matches my taste and love of food 🙂
Which brings me to this week’s menu! I haven’t done a lot of shopping lately for veggies, which really makes me sad 😦
There just isn’t a lot of produce to choose from right now. Does anyone else have this problem as well? It saddens me!
- Monday – Chili & salad
- Tuesday – Chicken tortilla soup & salad
- Wednesday – Stroganoff soup & salad
- Thursday – Ground beef stew & salad
- Friday – Baked potato soup (at friends house) & salad
So you picking up on the theme here? Yep, rainy-cold weather food……….oh and salad 🙂
This weeks workouts are going to be a little sketchy as well. I hate treadmill running, but I am not so sure the rain will cooperate with some outdoor activity! But so far here is what I have planned……
- Monday – 3 mile run
- Tuesday – arms & elliptical
- Wednesday – 4 mile run
- Thursday – legs & treadmill w/ incline
- Friday – quick 2 mile run/walk on treadmill
- Saturday – rest day
I will probably have to do my run on the indoor track today, which can be hard to keep up with. It is an 1/8 mile track so I have to count laps, and really who wouldn’t get all confused with that mess! I am praying that I have dry weather for Wednesday. I really hate to run on the treadmill so I know that four miles on that thing will kill me!!
What is your agenda this week?
