Hot N Cold

I couldn't think of a title for this post, so I just went with the name of the Katy Perry song I am listening to, which is actually a great running tune. I have real work I should be doing right now, so I'm just here for a quick update on all things Candice:
  1. PT went great. And my girls were awesome. It may have been at least partly due to the little "I have a surprise for you if you are good and don't make your sister scream" chat (bribe) we had in the car. But really, my girls are typically pretty good considering they are 3 (almost 4) and 16 months. They were entertained watching what was going on around them, playing catch with my PT, and jumping on the mini-trampoline. As far as my progress, I will be running 1 mile each day next week if I remain pain free!
  2. I am putting together a "I Have Run" Facebook page because there are so many times I have a running related thought I want to share, but most of my Facebook friends couldn't care less and I can't bring myself to posting a one or two sentence entry on here.
  3. I finished reading my first book of 2010 (last week actually). I'm on to book number two. Since there is little happening in the way of running, I will be posting more about my reading interests later this week.
  4. I am trying not to take it personally that I actually lost a follower this week. (This is where you tell me how wonderful I am and that you would never think of unfollowing me. Just kidding. Kind of.)

Happy humpday! Run happy!


  1. Lost a follower?? How did that happen? I have 2 blogs and have a decent amount of followers on my first, but my running one makes me look kinda sad when you look at the number........ it's sad that's where my self esteem comes from. Haha!

  2. Maybe they just closed their account and they are not following anyone anymore! You are awesome and I love reading your blog :-)

  3. I have absolutely been LOVING my fan page! Seriously it's so fun to interact with everyone and with people that care about the running! LOL! I love my friends but quite frankly they're all tired of hearing me go on and on about running! Fan Page = Running Outlet!

    Let me know once you've got it up!

  4. You should find out who that follower is and we will hunt them down and permanently disconnect them from the Internet! Who do they think they are?

  5. I just did the FB thing too. Shut Up and Run of course. Let me know when yours is up and I'll be a fan for sure. I have lost followers too. I'm pretty sure I scare them away with my crudeness. Oh well.

  6. I've lost followers too. I think they are being bad and blogger shuts them down. Thats my idea anyways haha

  7. I am your most recent follower so maybe I took their place!

  8. That follower wasn't good enough for you anyway.

  9. Maybe your follower died? I mean, why else would someone stop reading your blog?

  10. Hmmm, maybe I need to set up a Facebook page for my blog. Oh dear God, another thing to keep up...maybe not lol.

    p.s. I always get excited that I have a new follower. Don't worry about losing one, there will be more to follow. Ha, I made a pun :)

  11. Maybe your follower disconnected her/his blog. I'm SURE it can't be YOU!

    I love kid bribes, by the way! :)

  12. Yay for the FB page! I'm following!! I love to read, so excited to hear about your reading list. I just finished The Lovely Bones (I have some catching up to do on my list).

    Good luck on the 1 mi runs next week! Hope you stay pain free.

  13. Booo on losing a follower. I lost one last week too. Oh well, we can't please everyone! I think you're great though! :)

  14. I love running to that Katy Perry song too! It's so weird when you lose followers, oh well, their loss.

  15. I add and lose Followers all the time....dont take it personal :)

    I love Katy Perry!

    Facebook fun!! I have been thinking about adding one too, but I have far too many internet obsessions already..

    Ummmm did you see my tutu giveaway for your girls?

  16. So sorry for your loss. I know that at times I feel like I am following too many blogs and it is "work" keeping up with them all. As I was clicking your blog I was actually thinking of how I would word a post explaining that I had to "clean up" my blog roll. That would mean unfollowing those who don't inspire me in some way, either commenting with their opinions, e-mailing me, or sharing a common goal.

    I like your blog and wouldn't dream of not following. You are great! That person probably was getting rid of their computer to go live off the grid! That is the only reason they would unfollow you. I am sure of it!

  17. glad that PT went well and hey that follower might have just had their blog shut down and they weren't worth the snot that you develop during a that better?

  18. I didn't even know it was possible to unfollow someone!

    Don't worry about it. You're better than the follower you lost!

  19. I've got that Katy Perry song in my running line-up, too. Followers-schmollowers! They are missing out!

    I'm going to have to resist the Facebook thing. I've already been neglecting my housework too much as it is! Ha ha!

  20. Ha! I've fretted when I've lost a follower, too. Isn't it nuts?!?

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
