First Foto Friday (and maybe the only one ever)

This is what I'm wearing today. Yes, I added the "NOT." Probably hard to tell because I have such amazing photo editing SKILLZ. I figured the shirt works either way because running does suck because if I didn't love it so much NOT running wouldn't suck so much. I'm not sure how much sense that made or if it even makes sense because I think there is a double negative in there, but hopefully you get the idea.

Sorry about the boob shot, but these were some of my other attempts:

Sooo, you can't see the words on my shirt and Bean was determined to be in the picture. So I did what I had to do. Boob shot. Apparently I need a camera that zooms out if I'm going to try self portraits.

When I downloaded the pics off my camera, I found this:

I took it the other day when we got to The Princess' school a little early and were waiting for the first bell to ring. Seriously, she is FIVE! Going on fifteen. And how the real fifteen already scares me! At least once a day, she tells me or the hubs: "You are ruining my life!" or "This is the worst day of my life."

I also found this pic. While I watched the Emmys on Sunday night, the hubs let the girls stay up late with him and watch the football game.

Speaking of the hubs. Yesterday, he said "snap it" in a moment of frustration. It was an attempt to not swear by combining "snap" (which I have brought back in full force at our house and LOVE hearing Bean say) and "damn it" (sorry Mom). It might be my new favorite word.


  1. lol at the first photo! Not running does indeed suck!

    and yea, if you hadn't of told me that the Princess is 5, I would have guessed that she was like 10 or something. crazy with how grown up kids are these days!

  2. loving the boob shot! lol.

    that is totally a 15 year old stance!

  3. Holy

    Love that RS shirts. I have one!!
    Love the family snuggle-fest!

  4. Haha, snap it! We say "son of a chicken" at my house, no idea where it came from.

    And, a good boob shot on the blog once in awhile is okay. Keeps things a bit spicy.

  5. hahaha, love your awesome photoshop skillz :) love the shirt!!

  6. Nice tatas.

    Gorgeous smile.

    Two beautiful children

  7. Snap it - that's funny - almost as good as the real words! I agree - not running sucks...but it takes "not running" to realize how much you miss it! Sometimes I feel like I love running so much because it feels so damn good when I finish!

  8. I love the snap it. I am going to try using that. Not running does suck! I am trying to rest up a sore shin. :( Love all the pictures of trying to get a picture of the shirt. Kids are so helpful sometimes!

  9. Love the boob shot. I just wish I had the boobs to do that kind of shot!
    And I have a 13 year old that got the 5 going on 15 award in preschool. Seriously, she did. And things have not been too bad. And the Princess is a sweetheart! You'll be fine!
    "Snap it!" Your hubby comes up with the best phrases. First Runnerd and now this!

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
