Not Running Sucks

I thought today might be the day I run again. The fever, chills and body aches are gone. But the cough and a newly developed ear infection are keeping me off the treadmill again tonight. I just spent some time with the good old Internet, trying to figure out if I can use my Bean's ear drops that she got for possible ear infection with her tubes for my ear infection. I don't feel like going to the doctor to find out what I already know. And her ear drops expire next month, so I might as well get some use out of them.

Speaking of my Bean. Today the girls decided it would be fun to play with their winter scarves, mittens, coats, etc. It was like finding treasures they forgot they had. Bean even had to wear some of her finds to the grocery store.

She likes having her picture taken about as much as I do. I considered taking a pic of myself this morning since I had to get dressed in a non-mom outfit for a work meeting and was going to share my rare appearance in heels and slacks with you, but it didn't happen. So you'll have to make do with the picture of my Bean. She cuter anyway.

That's pretty much it for the excitement around here. Can I just say how much I'm enjoying reading all your Q&As? You are a bunch of funny, fascinating people!


  1. Not running definitely sucks. Not running sucks worse than listening to a whole Celine Dion CD.

    Hope you get feeling better soon!

  2. As long as you keep saying everyone else is cuter, we'll take the Bean pics.
    It's great that a significant portion of the country is trapped under a 'heat dome' and the ihaverun family dresses like polar bears :-)

    You have an ear infection now? In the summer?
    Of course you can take her ear drops, even if they're only a placebo, just Believe they'll help. And get better soon, this is like the complete opposite of T.I.L.T.!

  3. I sure hope you're feeling better soon - nothing worse than being sick in the summertime! In the thumbnail pic on my reader, I thought for sure Bean was wearing Tighty Whiteys on her head!! LOL!

  4. Feel better soon Candice! That picture of your little girl is priceless. :)

  5. Feel better! It's no fun, I know.

    Your daughter is a ham!

  6. Ha, I love the picture of Bean! Your kids are too cute!

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
