Miscellaneous Monday

Sometimes the pictures on my phone reflect the recent highlights and randomness of my life really well. So I bring you the first Miscellaneous Monday, prompted by the pictures from my phone.

This was my lunch multiple times last week. Whole wheat tortilla with turkey, Swiss cheese, lettuce/spinach mix, and spicy avocado hummus. This picture proves I wasn't the only fan of this meal.

All my runs lately have included a lot of dodging these little guys. Like hundreds of them. But hey, it's a nice distraction when my leg is hurting. Which is all of my runs lately as well.

Took a screenshot of this as a reminder because far too often the two go hand in hand for me. But I'm working on it.

The Bean and I spent quite a bit of time on Saturday sorting her rubber bands into her new storage case. What you see is about 1/20 of what we sorted.

This line from a Studio C sketch made me laugh. It's referring to the remote. So I Snapchatted the picture to my Bachelor loving friends to make fun of their obsession. I'm a good friend like that.

Saturday night was date night. I demolished my chips and salsa like a boss. Scott didn't stand a chance. Which is the norm for us.

This came in the mail on Friday. I'm super excited about it and will share more in detail soon!!

Ellie drew this in church yesterday. She is clearly LOVING her shorter hair.

To add to the adorableness of her new hairdo, she lost her two top front teeth in the past week. Not only does she look so stinkin' cute, but I love hearing her talk with a little lisp now.

And as far as randomness goes, Grace decided to name her giant slinky and treat it like a pet.

Then there's this. As much as their tablets drive me nuts sometimes, it's pretty great when I get messages like these from Ellie.


  1. That picture of ellie is adorable...both the church one and the one with her mouth wide open. I like her.

    I just saved the image about food and guilt. I will look at it daily....I mean hourly.

    Your calf needs to get better. Now.

    1. Food and guilt. Today I need that tattooed to my face.

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
