I'm Hungry

I was tagged by Sunflower Kisses to share seven random things about myself. You should know I am really bad at thinking of things for these, but here goes:
  1. I had shingles in 2006 and sometimes still experience pain in one spot on my back. Probably always will.
  2. I lived in Mexico City for 4th grade and three years of high school.
  3. I don't really like dogs in general, but I love my dog like crazy.
  4. I won't eat yogurt in a tube or drink it. In a cup with a spoon only please.
  5. I don't like heights. Or scary movies. Or hearing people chew their food.
  6. I hate touching or even seeing raw chicken. It makes me gag and lose my appetite.
  7. I love chocolate covered raisins, but I don't love raisins, especially in things like cinnamon rolls.
Can you tell I'm hungry? I'm supposed to tag seven people, but this thing is really making the rounds so consider yourself tagged if you are one of the few that hasn't done it yet.

Now enough about me. Before you start enjoying your long weekend, be sure to enter my giveaway. Or you can head over to the Last Mile Lounge and enter one of Jamoosh's. He's had a different giveaway every day this week!

RUN: Hey, Soul Sister (Train) and Telephone (Lady Gaga/Beyonce) are the latest additions to my running playlist.


  1. Hey! I take that as a compliment. It's hard to find like-minded people.

    I am not too crazy with chicken breasts cooked in a skillet. Give me BBQ, roasted in the oven, curried, shredded, but whole breasts in skillet make me gag.
    I'm not too crazy about heights or scary movies either.

  2. I love both of those songs!

    I've heard that about Shingles. I had that when I was pregnant with my third daughter, but thankfully a very very very mild case.

    I hate scary movies! Can't handle them.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I love chocolate covered raisins too! Why so long in Mexico City...? Mission? Have a great weekend Candice.

  4. With you on raw chicken--blech! Living in Mexico City was probably pretty cool. Are you bilingual?

  5. My husband's goal is to learn Hey, Soul Sister on the ukulele before we go to the beach in July. He is in love with that song.

    Love the list-y posts. And now (even though I just ate dinner) I'm hungry, too! Ha ha!

  6. I agree completely with #4.

    Great list!

  7. I'm right there with you about the yogurt! Loved reading some tidbits about you. Have a great weekend.

  8. I am totally with you on ALL of #5, especially the chewing food part. Ugh!

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  9. I am the same way with raisins! Too funny.

  10. I loved Mexico City :) Have a great week!

  11. Thank you so much for this beautiful Article

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

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

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
