Movie stars, memories, mistakes and more

My oldest little girl is sick (again) with a scary fever (104.8 at its highest) and vomiting, so I am going to post something I finally finished last week but never got around to putting on here. I figure we are due for good health all around at our house, so hopefully I will be back to regular blogging (and running) soon!

So, better late than never, Katie (Miles of Kate) tagged me to share some fun things...

1. Who is the hottest movie star?
This is hard! I am really liking Gerard Butler right now. And Ryan Reynolds has grown on me lately (especially after The Proposal).

2. Apart from your house and car, what is the most expensive item you have ever purchased?
Probably our TV; or if you add it all up, running is probably the most expensive "item" in my life.

3. What is your most treasured memory?
Giving birth (so I guess that is two memories)

4. What is the best gift you ever received as a child?
I spent way too much time thinking about this without coming up with an answer. I have wonderful, generous parents who gave me many wonderful things while growing up. That in itself is a gift!

5. What is the biggest mistake you ever made?
I try not to look back. I just try to learn from my mistakes and look forward.

6. Four words to describe yourself.
Mom, wife, runner, writer

7. What was the highlight and lowlight of your 2008?
Highlight - the birth of my little girl
Lowlight - my other little girl's oral surgery

8. What is your favorite film?
My Fair Lady

9. Tell me one thing I don't know about you.
I have the perfect dog, a Boston Terrier named Rowdy.

10. If you were a comic book/strip cartoon character, who would you be?
I guess Phoenix in X-Men. My knowledge of comic book charaters is somewhat limited.

I haven't had much luck tagging people, and I took so long to respond that I will leave it up to you if you want to share these same things about yourself...


  1. YOu are funny. Look at that cute picture of your puppy..

  35. Alright, so if you're on social media, you don't have to be on all the platforms. Your company just needs to be on the ones that are best able to reach your customers. After all, the content you post on LinkedIn may not apply to Snapchat, as your audiences on both platforms may also differ. my response

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
