Too much of a good thing

Because I've been spending so much time with this:

I am grateful I get to spend time with these:

What are you grateful for today?


  1. My favorite runnerd.

    I heart you. completely.

  2. The sun that's shining for one last day before it's no where in site. For new tights that came in the mail. For lunch with my 9 year old. For working out this morning. It's a great day!

  3. Where is all the chocolate? No temptation for me without the chocolate.

  4. Oh my gosh I know that Halloween candy is getting to me! Soo much sugar! lol

  5. WHOA! How do you run with the treadmill facing the wall??

    I'm thankful that it finally stopped raining!

  6. Today, I'm grateful for antibiotics. Little Red is finally resting easy. And ditto for no temptation without chocolate. :)

  7. Winter running tights! And chihuahuas who snuggle when it's cold! :)

  8. I am grateful I don't need to run on the "dreadmill".
    I love chocolate!

  9. Same boat! Ugh! I asked my hubby to "make the candy bowl disappear". And 2 minutes later it was GONE!

    i am grateful for my long run today to make up for all the candy I have eaten!

  10. I'm grateful I could run a lovely race this morning.

  11. There is NO WAY that little Vanilla Tootsie would survive 30 seconds in my house, let alone centerstage in a photo op.
    And I continue to be jealous of that jogger rain cover, I bet it helps shield the cooler weather, too.
    As for gratefulness, I am grateful that I can wake up each day and enjoy everything the world tries to throw at us. But since that's a little deep, I am also grateful for Fluoride because with all the candy I've eaten in my lifetime, I definitely should've had a cavity by now.

  12. Thanks for coming by my blog...we forgot to put out a pumpkin (this happens when your kids are all adults who don't live at home) no one came to our door. We are now left with a box of mini chocolats...oh dear!

    I am grateful for sunshine today and a really nice run :) ...I guess I am a runnerd! I think I'll go and join the site right now.

  13. I'm grateful for you and the comment you just left. Thinking of you. Bringing you smiles and hugs from Sunny AZ. Hang in there my runnerd. ;)

  14. I MUST get the candy outta my house! I have finally got off the last of the splurge after the race weight. Must resist the sugar's time for headlamps and weather shields!

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
