My day so far...

I cleaned up this mess. Sometimes I try to be the mom that just lets The Princess's room go with the hope that she'll eventually get tired of it and clean it herself. That hasn't happened yet obviously.

Then I made and ate this. It is on a dessert plate because it makes me feel like I am getting more to eat.

Next it was time to shower and get dressed in this.

I was going to run before the shower but made a last minute doctor's appointment to make sure I don't need to do anything more than I am doing to get and keep my leg happy. He prescribed this. And physical therapy.

Now I'm doing this. There is no picture because you are lookin' at it. I'm blogging while my girls sleep.

And in a few hours, I'll be here.

I literally have butterflies. I am so excited!!

  1. a very productive day that will have an awesome conclusion! Have so much fun!

  2. Rattle & hum
    You are going to U2?
    Racing Dawn is going to U2.
    I was jealous of your breakfast but holy crap . . . U2?!?

  3. We are driving three hours from WY to come to the concert! Can't wait!!!!!

  4. Have fun tonight! Is it sad that I gave up my ticket to stay home with my baby?
    Please tell Edge that I love him.

  5. hi friend! emz told me to come check you out...i'm heading to u2 tonight too!!! can hardly wait! i got lucky getting tix yesterday!!! i can't even stand it. hope you have fun!

  6. I saw U2 in concert years ago. What fun! Have a blast!

    (A U2 concert is totally all-caps worthy, no?)

  8. I was just thinking this morning that my littlest's princess room looks like it's been ransacked. Glad I'm not alone on that front.
    Enjoy U2!!!

  9. Have a great time. Blow Bono a kiss from me too if you don't mind. =)

  10. Your going to U2!!! Yay have so much fun!! I am so jealous.

  11. Enjoy the concert. I saw the 360° in Roma last year.
    About "The One" song I prefer the U2/Mary J. Blige version.

  12. Great googly moogly, if my (or my sister's) room ever looked like that we would have lost half our toys and been grounded for a week.

  13. Aaaah! envy, envy! Hope you had a good time!

    My room looked like that when I was younger - all the time. I did grow out of it, eventually.

  14. I am a total advocate for Physical Therapy! Mostly because I work at a Physical Therapy clinic and I see the difference it makes, especially in runners. It has taken away the knee pain I used to experience when running. Good luck with it!

  15. Frozen veggie leg is now celebrating with celebrex?
    Well, if your leg is well enough to U2, it doesn't sound too bad.
    And that princess bedroom post-earthquake pic. That earned you another Top 25 Mom Blogger vote.

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
