If you are reading this Sunday, Happy Easter to you, if not, I hope you had a great Day!

I thought this week was surely going to be better than last week, but I’m afraid it didn’t start out that way. I had a Runfessions post that wasn’t much like my style of writing but I felt like I needed to get some things off my chest. Ok, it looks like we’ve beat this horse to death. Moving on….

Activity Summary

SUNDAY – 2.7 miles with my daughter, fence work outside, 18,200 steps
MONDAY – PT lunges & squats, oh my! 2.8 miles 15,500 steps
TUESDAY – Ran 1 slow mile before work. Walked 1.5-2 miles with the Family and I was so sore this afternoon. 11,100 steps
WEDNESDAY – Back to PT with Ab and shoulder work. Ran 1 mile with the family 14,500 steps
THURSDAY – 2.80 miles, part with my daughter. Really needed this run today after work. 10,500 steps
FRIDAY – Ran 1 mile before work. 13,100 steps
SATURDAY – 7.5+/- mile run then walked another 2 miles while Mr. Sippi ran. 27,300 steps

As you can see my runstreak is still going and it was fairly easy this week. The habit is really taking hold. I’m also happy to report my family is still in 5k training and with just 4 weeks until our race together they are doing great! It does make it so much easier to get in my runs with both Mr. Sippy and my daughter wanting to run. This is great yall!!!

This week also continued our movie watching streak as well. Friday night we watched Selfless a movie Holly told me about which we really enjoyed. I rented it through Amazon Prime. Then on Saturday night, we watched two movies. Daddy’s Home was one of them. It had a few “stupid-funny” parts but hey it had Mark Wahlberg so all is well!

The second movie we watched was one I had seen before, 21 Jump Street withย Channing Tatum again I am not a fan of stupid funny movies but I am a fan of eye-candy! #noshame

I am two weeks out from my next half so I needed to get in a longer run this weekend. I gave in to peer-pressure from these two and made myself get up to meet them early Saturday morning. I am so very glad I did because #1 – I always feel better after a run and #2 running with friends is awesome! I see Tammy on a regular basis, you do know she is my trainer at the gym, right? But Leah, I don’t get to see her enough so I always enjoy running with her.

Mr. Sippi worked some today so after my run I went to Chick-fil-a and had some mini chick’n biscuits. Man, oh man these things are so delicious! Have you ever had them?

I then was on a mission to find me an Easter dress. Yes, I have not been in much of a mood to shop for dresses here lately and well time was running out so today was my last chance. I also knew since I got out running errands on Friday that the later I went the worse it would be. Luckily I found one that would do.

I piddled around town some more and then headed home. Mr. Sippy made it home shortly after me and he wanted to go run so I went with him but I only walked. We stopped off at a local pizza place, a favorite of ours for and early dinner.


I got up early, knowing I wanted to go ahead and get my 1-mile slow run out of the way early. This was a great decision because the rest of the afternoon was a soaker! I enjoyed the solemness this morning and reflected on the meaning of today in my faith. I had a few minutes to myself to enjoy my cup of coffee before the family was awake and rushing to get ready for church.

After church, a change of family plans, had us in town eating lunch. Don’t you just love last minute change of plans…..? My daughter went with her boyfriend so I did not get a picture with her. ๐Ÿ™

I’m cutting this post, Weekly Wrap 34 Easter edition off here. We’ve got our second major eating of the day coming up. I wonder who is going to roll me home?

Did you celebrate Easter? How? Was food involved? What was your favorite?

This was a topic on another blog post I read earlier, I’m sorry I don’t remember who’s. Is it just a Southern Easter tradition to have a new dress for Church on this day? ย If this applies to you, tell me below.

I do hope it is a great week for everyone coming up.

I am also supporting a Monday linkup called #MotivateMe Monday, hosted byย Lucie @

  2. I remember getting a new dress and shoes for Easter when I was little, too! Our Easter was low-keyed as well. Our youngest son came for a mid-afternoon dinner and just left.

    Happy Easter!

    Thanks for the linkup!

  3. I also watched that Daddys Home movie. I thought it was hilarious! Happy Easter!

  4. I really like when I can convince my husband to run with me. He only runs during two seasons, if at all. Luckily spring is one of his times so we’ve been training together at least once a week for the past few weeks. It’s so nice to get quality time AND my scheduled run! Unrelated: I’m going to have to check out those first two movies. Have a good week!
    Elizabeth recently posted…ORRRC Half Training Week 4My Profile

  5. I usually celebrate Easter, but not this year since I was travelling. When the kids were younger we always got them new outfits, and maybe a new dress for me if I found one. I hope you had a Happy Easter!
    Coco recently posted…Seizing The DayMy Profile

  6. Happy Easter!!!

    Looks like you had a good week even with the need for a little attitude adjustment ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Glad you got a run in today.

    So awesome about your family 5k training!!

    Marc Walberg….Channing Tatum…yes please!!

  7. Glad you got your run in today and beat the rain! I went to my parents for Easter. Lots of good food, hard to pick a favorite! Happy Easter!

  8. Congrats. Can’t believe you’re still streaking!!

    That dress is awesome.

    Did my Easter involve food – why, of course!! I don’t celebrate by my hubby’s family does.

  9. I’m a late comer to Amazon Prime but I’m loving it. I ordered a case for my new Iphone and it was here in 2 days. My new waterproof iPod shuffle (yes there is such a thing) here in 1 day. OMG.

    Keep your chin up. We’re in this thing together.
    Wendy@Taking the Long Way Home recently posted…Big Sur Marathon Training Week 8My Profile

  10. I love your Easter dress! I always get a new dress for Easter! It seems like tradition now since I always got one when I was young. We’re watching Daddy’s Home tonight! I didn’t get to do anything for Easter. ๐Ÿ™ My husband had a house that had to be finished by tomorrow, so we painted all day.
    Tara recently posted…Marathon Training Week 14My Profile

    • It was a great movie don’t you think? Wait is your husband a contractor or a painter? Mr. Sippi is a paint contractor so I know about deadlines, he actually had to work Saturday to finish up a job.
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  11. A lot of us northern folk get new Easter dresses (I’m just not one of them LOL). I forgot to mention in my blog that I got a dress for myself on my shopping adventure with the daughters yesterday. Mind you, I’m not much of a dress person (too much of a commitment),but I do like skirts because I hate wearing the same “outfit” twice and am always mixing and matching (hard to do that with a dress). (you asked) ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Kim Hatting recently posted…Wrapping up Easter week in IowaMy Profile

    • Well you do have a point about wearing skirts and mixing and matching so much! I hardly ever wear skirts maybe because I’m not good with finding things that go together. I do know I have to be in the mood to shop and this past weekend I was not! Hence waiting until Saturday to find my dress. Talk about pressure! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  12. I always buy my daughter a new dress to wear but I wear an old one. I have so many dresses that I can wear. But she grows like a weed! Thanks for hosting!

  13. Great job continuing your run streak! This year Easter was low key since I had to work. We celebrated yesterday and the kiddos had fun Easter egg hunting.

  14. Sounds like your week was better. I think it is great that your daughter and husband are running. I so would like my husband to train for a 5K. He runs one day for 20 minutes then complains for the next week how hard it was and how much he hates it and doesn’t “run” again for another month. Then repeats the same scenario ! LOL

    My daughter had a gymnastic meet on Easter so we didn’t do anything. Seriously ? In a country where the population is 95% Catholic and Easter is a big deal ? So we went to the meet, because of course it is an hour away… and it took up pretty much the whole day.

    Congrats on your run streak, keep it up ! I am impressed !
    Karen @ Fit in France recently posted…Weekly wrap : the final countdownMy Profile

    • Wow, I read a gym meet on Easter? Some organization around here had something along those lines too and I thought wow on Easter??? Are you getting excited about this weekend? I am for you!!!
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  15. We have not seen either of the movies you mentioned, but we do like to occasionally watch movies through our cable subscriber. We had a great weekend visiting our daughter and she kept me company during my 10 mile run, running one mile and then riding the rest. I always love when we exercise together cuz the miles go so quickly since we gab the entire time.
    Pam recently posted…Weekly Workout Roundup: Mar 28thMy Profile

    • I know it was great to read about you two’s run together! I guess I don’t have to tell you how lucky you are to run together. I can’t get my parents to even walk to the mail box! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  16. Cute dress! and yes, you need something new for Easter, it is the rules ๐Ÿ™‚ I am impressed the family is keeping up with the running so well- congrats to you! Are you all planning on a race together? I love the extra time with the kids for the holiday, makes things just a little extra special. Now back to the grind! Happy Monday!
    Mary Beth Jackson recently posted…Spring is warming up!My Profile

    • Yes I talked them into a local 5k It is benefiting the tornado victims in our town from a couple months back so a great cause. I’m so very excited about it. One day we’ll all meet up together, then another day I’ll run with my daughter and another with the hubs.
      Ya know I’m doing a lot of running trying to run with the both of them and their schedules, I just realized this!!!
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  17. Great jonpb in keeping that run streak alive! I loved my run streak when I did it last–those 1-milers always felt so good! Happy Easter!
    Jennifer @ Dashing in Style recently posted…JASR Half Marathon Training: Week 17My Profile

  18. It’s the best when the whole family can get involved! Now that it’s warmer our son (4) has been asking to go run with us each time we put our shoes on so we’re making sure to get him out when it’s possible. He loves it when there’s kids races that he can do at the races we participate in!
    Jen recently posted…Weekly Wrap #17: 3/21 โ€“ 3/27My Profile

  19. I always got a new dress each Easter growing up but don’t anymore. Easter and Christmas are really the only times I get dressed up for church now, since it’s normal to wear jeans to regular weekly church on the West Coast. Happy Easter!

    • That trend is making it’s way to the bible belt. I think back I remember when it was just unacceptable for a woman to wear pants to church. I’m so glad times have changed. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  20. Sounds like a pretty good week!

    Being Jewish, we don’t celebrate and Passover isn’t until NEXT month, which is kind of odd.

    When I was young, I once had a friend make me an easter basket because she thought I was missing out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. There’s nothing wrong with eye candy. I do have to like the plot of a movie, but eye candy is a nice bonus. Last week my friends and I watched the Man from UNCLE, and one of them really like Henry Cavill.
    Lesley recently posted…Monday Musings 3/28My Profile

  22. happy easter! I do celebrate and enjoy some great brunch food with my in-laws. I opted to stay mostly low sugar and low carb this year because I have a glucose test (blah!) today, but still enjoyed some eggs, sausage and fruit. Yum!
    melissa recently posted…More Coffee Shops and Easter!My Profile

    • Oh dang on the glucose test, I would so have a bad reading after Easter. I went over board with the sweets! I don’t get them often like that so yes I did partake! Thanks Melissa for stopping by!
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  23. Thanks you for Linking up to MotivateMe! Looks like you had a great week! I enjoyed my Easter weekend. I travelled 6 hours north to be with my family. We left following an ice/snow storm and the scenery was beautiful.

  24. While it has been some time since I’ve had a new dress for Easter, it is a tradition. Especially when I was younger. My mother insisted on it.

    I’m still full from this weekend. My family did Easter dinner early on Saturday so everyone could make it. Then a big post Church breakfast on Sunday, then I drove to the BF’s & had Easter dinner with their family.

    At my request my Mom made corned beef as part of our Easter dinner. YUM YUM YUM.

  25. Congrats on keeping your run streak going! Running with friends makes the miles go quickly! Very pretty dress!

  26. Your Easter dress looks great! And I haven’t seen 21 Jump Street yet but want to pretty much just for the Eye Candy ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats on keeping your streak going!

  27. I’m from Michigan and we always had new dresses growing up. I don’t do that much any more though, in fact I wore jeans to church yesterday. My nieces had new dresses though.

    • I really did not think I’d find a new dress in time this Easter but I got lucky. I sure have to be in the mood to shop for real clothes, now ask me to shop for workout clothes and I’m always game!
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 34 EasterMy Profile

  28. Way to keep the streak going Tricia! Love that the fam is training for a 5K! I’m so happy that my son is wanting to do a 5K as well! So great when the fam is interested in running! ๐Ÿ™‚ Running with friends is the best too!

    • I am just tickled the family is getting motivated enough to run. You should have seen them all yesterday. It was raining and they were still out there! If that’s not dedication I don’t know what is!
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  29. Sounds like a great week of workouts and you have been killing it on your steps! I want to see Daddy’s Home for the same reason, no shame either ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. i love chick fil e fries! They are my weakness! Have you tried the new southwest salad yet? So good!

  31. Ever since I was a little girl it was a tradition to have a new dress for Easter Sunday, so I don’t think it’s just a southern thing. But I do love your dress super cute! Terrible to admit, but I didn’t buy a new one this year:(
    I was pretty much the only one at my family party last night not in a new spring dress, but oh well, LOL
    Oh I love me some eye candy too in a movie. I’m contemplating playing hookie tomorrow and hitting up a movie instead of work, I’ve been wanting to see the new Alliegent movie.
    Great job on your running! So awesome you’ve got family in on the running bug too:)

  32. I have never heard of that movie but I do love Will Ferrell…

    As a resident of the South, yes… Easter traditions and dresses are huge here. Now, a lot of it depends on where you are down South- in the more conservative/traditional areas it’s all about church and dresses, Lilly, etc. I live in Charleston, and we have plenty of people here who dress up for Easter… but then you have those who show up to church wearing t-shirts and jeans too. And, despite being known as the “Holy City”, there’s also a LOT of people around here, my husband and myself included, who don’t attend church even on holidays- and that’s also very accepted. Now the town where I used to live… everyone went to church… especially on Easter… and you had a new dress, or else. Small town problems!
    Amy Lauren recently posted…Weekly Rundown: March 21-27My Profile

    • Don’t I know about #smalltown problems, Amy! I think only a handful of families run this town and well they are making sure their pocketbooks are padded before letting anything new come to our city! We can’t grow because of it! #smalltownpolitics! Thanks for stopping by good luck in your race this weekend!

  33. Sam @ See Sam Run says:

    I’m glad you commented on my blog so now I found yours! Great week of running! I think it’s awesome that your family is training for a 5K. It’s so nice to get those you love involved in something so near to your heart. Yesterday I had my aunt’s famous mashed potatoes. I don’t know what it is, but they are simply the best!

    • I’m so very glad you joined us for WW Sam! It is good to have you with us! I think mashed potatoes and Easter just go hand and hand kind of like Eggs and Chocolate on Easter! Good luck next weekend in your race! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  34. I think the Easter dress concept is a childhood thing in most places, but it definitely seems like a part of grown up life too down south. Every one I know back home gets a new Easter dress, no matter their age. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a heathen lately lol no church on Easter, just sleep, that has been my main mission. I just feel way too tired lately.
    I love stupid funny movies and Daddy’s Home is one of favorites lately lol We watched it this weekend as well.
    Keep the streak going!
    Karen recently posted…Marching On…My Profile

    • You know Karen I think you were the one who told me about Daddy’s Home in the first place! A little eye-candy does help the stupid funny parts for me! Oh and hey, this weekend is 22 Jump Street! Ahhh!
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  37. I always loved getting a new outfit for Easter. I have fond memories of doing this as a child, and most years as an adult have tried to do the same. This year Easter completely crept up on me so I pulled an old, but favorite, dress out of the closet for the day.
    Kathryn @ Dancing to Running recently posted…ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon Training Log โ€“ Week 8My Profile

    • I love swapping over to Spring clothes, I forget what I had the year before so it’s like getting new clothes all over again!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  38. Sounds like you had a good week! I love the idea of a good easter dress, and got excited about looking for the right one. I was happy with it, but when I went to my family’s big Easter lunch, I was surprised that no other ladies (either my generation or my mom’s) had dresses on!!! I skipped a few years of the Easter celebration, and it became much more casual! Oh well… Happy to link up with you!

  41. Great job keeping that runstreak going! I love when things start to become habit after a little while, and you don’t have to think about them as much you just do them. That’s a cute Easter dress! We celebrated Easter as well, but no big meal or anything, just went to church – so really nothing out of the usual!

  44. I wish buying a new Easter dress was a tradition up north! I’m a fan of those ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVED your Easter dress! How awesome that your family is training for a 5k together! That is a dream of mine some day. My boys may need to bike instead of run… we’ll see if they take a liking to running when they get older. I sure hope so ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hey Amy, my hubs started out biking while I ran too! It gave him something to do instead of waiting on me to finish! Whatever they do is great as long as it’s active right? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Amy for stopping by and linking up!
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  45. Pretty dress! We sadly missed church on Sunday due to my hubs injury and pain level ๐Ÿ™
    But your comment about dress shopping reminded me of all the years my mom would be literally pinning our homemade matching dresses on during Easter breakfast! Oh the memories! HAHA
    And chick-fil-a! Always YES ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope your week is going well ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. I’m so proud of your streaking! And, the Sippis commitment to running the 5k. You’ve been sprinkling some inspiration around! Our Easter was quiet, which I enjoyed. I actually did our taxes (blech). We had celebrated with the grandkids on Saturday. Your dress is very pretty. I need to find something for middle child’s graduation in May. I may go with a sundress I wore only once. I’m not a fan of shopping, you know. I’ll see you in a couple of weeks! Keep streaking.

    • Taxes, gosh don’t remind me I hate doing them and have put them off!
      I have to be in the mood to shop. That mood usually strikes me when I don’t have any money too! Yes, I can’t wait to have my feet in the sand and a drink in my hand!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Tricia recently posted…Coffee FunMy Profile

  47. That is awesome that your whole family is running a 5k today… when I go back home in May I’m running a race with my nieces, who recently took up running… nice to have a shared passion.

    • Yes it is Vicki, it makes my heart smile that they are wanting to run! I love it so that I just want them to feel as great as I do! Thank you for stopping by and linking up with us!
