Things I Love Thursday - EMZ

I actually had a big long post about how my dishwasher broke and my Thursday is so busy, but I decided there was something much more important to talk about today.

I love things easily. My Thursday posts are proof of that. I love my dishwasher. I love some of your blog posts. I love running. I love the cookie I am eating right now.

People, not so easily. I openly love my immediate family. I have no problem telling my girls, husband, mom, dad, brothers and sister I love them. Beyond that, I am somewhat greedy with my I love yous. Even in-laws, cousins, aunts and uncles have to work harder to earn a Candice "I love you." There's a woman from church that tells me she loves me after our weekly meetings, and it actually makes me quite uncomfortable.

With all that said, the first thing I thought when I finished this post today was "I love you EMZ." Not in a crazy stalker blogger kind of way. In a you amaze me and people should mind their own business and I have never ever not once thought "your body is made to run" but have always been in awe of how hard you train and how committed you are kind of way.

And I know I am not the only one.

  2. I love the cookie you are eating right now, too. :) I would love it more if it were in my hand, but you can't have everything, can you?

  3. I'm not going to lie, i have the same problem. I have no problem telling my husband and my mom that I love them, but pretty much everyone else it's really hard and, definitely, sometimes uncomfortable. You're not alone.

    p.s. I'm loving my coffee right now

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

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 pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
