The ups and downs of a day.

When your ankle hurts and you took a rest day on Wednesday, doing "speed work" on the elliptical is better than nothing.

Froyo with friend is even better when it is happy hour and you can get all-you-can-fit in your cup for $3.99.

You know it has been a stressful week when you find yourself taking these. Cold sore meds. I only get cold sores when I am stressed or running a fever. I am not running a fever.

When your name is never spelled right on anything, you smile pretty big when the hubs brings this home. Even if you don't like Coke.

An evening walk in your favorite flipflops to return the Redbox just makes sense when you've ingested 100 grams of sugar during the day. 

Happy Independence Day (weekend!) to you all. May it be filled with the joys of freedom and some fireworks!


  1. What movie did you rent? What show are you watching on the elliptical?? (Aren't I nosy)

    What OTHER way would you even spell Candice?? Weirdos.

    I want fro yo all over again. I hope all that sugar goes straight to your ankle and makes it feel better...

  2. Mike & Molly on the elliptical. Grace the American girl movie for my girls from Redbox. Neither are very exciting.

    Candace. Apparently that's more common.

    And me too. Froyo e'ry day. But I'm pretty sure it went to that ever-growing roll around my middle. Although my ankle is feeling a lot better today 😊

  3. I think that means you should have more fro yo to help the ankle. Keep eating it until anyone notices this 'roll' you speak of...Cause I havent seen one yet.

  4. Totally get the never having your name spelled correctly on anything!

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
