You know you're a runnerd...

If the only thing you get out of this post is this...

...then I'll be a happy camper. went live yesterday. And it will just keep getting better and better, so visit often. But for it to be the best it can be, we need your help. So stop by and tell us what you want to see!!

Like if you want recipes for things like this. Not that I made it. It was a bowl of deliciousness that was dinner Saturday night from Wild Zucchini. The more delicious one on the right is mine.

And this picture is just because how could I not share it?!? It might be the first time Ellie Bean has held a baby. She could normally take them or leave them, but can you blame her for not being able to resist this one?

Tonight we had snow cones. After a day of playing at the splash pad, of course. Being the mean mom that I am, I made them eat dinner first.

My awesome brother and cute little nephew joined in on the fun.

Because I resisted the sugary temptation of getting a snow cone, I treated myself with this tonight. It has been my favorite evening treat for the past few weeks. Strawberries, bananas and Yoplait vanilla Greek yogurt. Soooo good! Like better than real dessert kind of good.

For the record, there was pool running this morning. I have taken advantage of being able to go to the pool every morning while Scott's work schedule allows it. I figure I might as well give my leg the best chance I can for it to heal. I'm a lucky girl to have a husband who makes sure I am able to do whatever it takes. Two weeks to go!!

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
