Natter: Smokin’

Workout: 3.25 mi run in 30:30 on treadmill

Calories: 2100

Guess what?

Work It Wednesdays – Workout = Just a regular Wednesday!

However, it was no regular Wednesday because of the events that transpired last night.

Richard: What is that?

Me: What?

Richard: What is that smell?

Me: What smell?

Me: Wait?

Me: Oh no.

Me: Richard, what do I do.

[Fire coming out of the oven]

Me: Oh crap!

So yes, that would be me trying to burn my house down! Smoke went EVERYWHERE! So I did the smart thing, closed that oven door and turned the oven off. You see, I was roasting my coffee beans on a new setting: the maxi broil. To say it was a mistake is an understatement!

Seriously, a day later and we’re still airing out the entire house. I got home and it had that lovely bar-type smell mixed with some vanilla & cinnamon scents, with some cucumber coconut thrown in. We’ve tried everything to to get the smell out, we have bowls of vinegar and others of vanilla all over the house.

We’re planning on steam cleaning our couches this weekend so here’s to hoping something works!

Do you guys know of any ways to get the stinky smoke out?

Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Anyone?

On a good note, I love, love, loved my workout this morning! I’m trying to work on shaving some time off my miles and I shaved 2 whole minutes off this workout if I had run my pretty usual 10 minute pace. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and I felt Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat afterward!

Here’s to hopin you all had a great workout too :)

Way to pump up the speed!

I have no idea how to get the stink out. Maybe baking soda?
