Because these are the things I think about while running...

Yesterday someone was talking to Scott about the conspiracy theories surrounding the Vegas shooting. This morning I couldn't stop thinking about the crazy things people want to believe to justify hate, cruelty and pure evil.

The only conspiracy relevant to the horrible act was the result of Satan's choosing to rebel when God chose Jesus Christ to be our Savior. Satan conspires every day to turn the hearts of the children, all of us, away from the Father. 

Satan and his followers spend every day trying to turn our hearts from good. But luckily when we look at the people around us, there is still so much good in the world! For every one person like that man who displayed such hatred and evil in Las Vegas, there are thousands, no hundreds of thousands, of people who choose good. Every single day.

Yet I was filled with incredible sadness when I realized that same man wasn't born evil. He chose God's plan before he came to earth. He was, in fact, born with the light of Christ. We all are. Each and every one of us. When we chose to follow God's plan and turned away from Satan's, we chose the gift of Christ's light as mortals here on earth.
However, Satan had his own plan. And he finds success with those men and women who let a sliver of hate into their hearts. Satan finds that sliver, that chink in their armor, and works on it. He builds on it, feeds it, and helps it fester and grow. 

So those of us with goodness and love in our hearts need to protect it. We need to put on the whole armor of God, and then make it impenetrable. So don't stop praying. Don't stop doing good. Focus on the good. Surround yourself with goodness and light. And try a little harder every day to be a little better

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
