Almost famous (again) and sweet gummy goodness

It's been busy around here. Since I last checked in...

 (Can you find me? Hint: white shirt.)

We went to the zoo with lots of cousins and aunts.

Grandma came, so she got to join in on the fun of The Princess's summer camp field trip to the landfill and copper mine. Yes, the speed limit at the landfill really is 23 1/2 mph.

An article I was interviewed for several weeks ago appeared in The Wall Street Journal. You can read the article HERE.

We took a little trip to Park City. This has become an annual thing, during which we do some serious school shopping and there is a LOT of swimming. 

Last but not least, I finished off my bag of Haribo Gold-Bears. And they were yummy! Haribo sent me a bag to try, calling them a "sweat-approved sweet." I have to agree; they tasted extra good after my runs! I have always liked gummy bears because they aren't TOO sweet. Don't believe me? My bag may be all gone, but I have some to share with you! Haribo has provided TEN free bags (in the form of coupons) to share with my readers.

Here's how you can enter to get one of the bags of Haribo Gold-Bears:

  7. My daughters and I are a bit addicted to gummy bears! I just bought some over the weekend for my road trip next week.

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
