Some things are just no-brainers

The only injury related thing I'll include in this post is that I find out today if I can stop wearing "the boot" and what the plan is moving forward as far as doing exercise, besides strength training. Fingers crossed!

Now on to more interesting things. At least to me.

My girls start school on Tuesday. Because they wear uniforms, their backpack choice is very important each year. This year, their choices couldn't reflect their personalities more:

I have been trying to really push myself with each workout lately. This one was really tough in the best way:

I am super excited about The Peanuts Movie coming out later this year. I might have to add these to my wardrobe:

I love fruit. Give me fruit over veggies any day. And for some reason, when you combine some of my favorites into a fruit salad, everything tastes even better:

Some weeks just call for froyo. This has been one of those weeks. Knowing Yogurtland has a Salted Caramel Gelato flavor right now made it a no-brainer:

Since strength training has been my thing lately, being part of Skinny Mom's Free Weights Challenge was also a no-brained. You should join us! The ab exercises from last week's Wednesday workout made my obliques sore for days afterward:


  1. One of my most prized possessions -- that I almost killed my ex when I thought was lost on my last move -- is an old Peanuts blanket ;)

  2. 9.99 for that shirt? Ya. I think you need that! Jusy as much as I need that fro yo. Maybe one treat would be okay??? But then watch me go tomorrow and they won't have salted caramel or pb...and then you watch the news that night about how some crazy woman went without sugar, decided she wanted sugar and they didn't have the sugar she went on a rampage all throughout UC. Hey. It could happen.

    When do you go back to the dr again? Assuming they will continue to reevaluate your situation and hopefully allow you to do more each time.

    We got our kids new backpacks last year and spent some money getting them ones they could also use hiking. Let's hope I don't have to buy them new ones for a while #lazymom

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
