Instagram: Not All Bad

 
I was going to rant write about the reasons Instagram is bad when I'm already having a bad day, even if only a few people are posting pictures of their six pack abs, model-skinny legs and 15 mile runs. About how I get jealous when my gorgeous friends get comments about how pretty they are. About feeling guilty for craving peppermint milkshakes when everyone is posting pics of their amazing meals with 10 different healthy eat clean hashtags.




And about how I might petition for a "No Love" button if I see one more cat picture. I swear there are at least two felines for every canine on there.


But instead of that post, I decided to show you some of the (#runnerdphotoaday) Instagram posts that do I love:

 Happy Friday all my ab-alicious, fast and far running friends!

  1. Instagram is still really so confusing to me. I do not get the hastags or how to follow new people. teehee! But I do love these photos and the photo a day challenge. It has been fun and I am glad I jumped in on it.

    Have an amazing weekend Candice! You are an incredible Mother, a very talented writer, a great runner, and a beautiful person inside and out. :)

  3. That is actually one thing I haven't joined in on, I'm thinking it's probably because I don't have a smartphone and I refuse to get one... but maybe I'll venture over there.

  5. Meh, instagram is a highlight reel. I post my junky junk too. No worries. I love doing your photo a day thing, but I've been really bad about it this month. I always feel s little frazzled in December.

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
