The secrets to life can be found on Instagram

My new favorite treat lately? A sliced apple. Sprinkled with cinnamon, drizzled with a little melted peanut butter, sprinkled with a teaspoon of mini chocolate chips, and heated for 20-30 seconds in the microwave. I am always so reoccupied with enjoying every bite that I have yet to take a picture of this deliciousness.

My favorite book right now? Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I decided to re-read the Harry Potter series after finishing Go Set a Watchman. The Harper Lee novel reminded me what it feels like to enjoy a book so much you don't want it to end and when it does you feel like you've just said goodbye to some dear friends. I wanted to feel that way again, and I know I can count on that with good old Harry.

My favorite cup and what's inside? This one. With water inside. The minions are helping me get all the water my body needs lately.

My favorite Instagram account? @snoopygrams. I have always loved Snoopy. Since I was a little girl. That love has not wavered. And that Peanuts gang knows all the secrets to life.

My favorite workout? This one topped my list last week. My arms were toast when I was finished. I'll be doing it again on Thursday!


  1. A good book series that gives you The Feels are hard to come by and amazing to experience. I feel like that is how annabelle has been since she finished the Fablehaven series. ..not that I think that series is amazing, but she is obsessed.

    Speaking of, that snack sounds delightful. I will definitely be giving it a try.

    So will you be seeing the peanuts movie opening weekend? Evan laughed during the preview. He thinks snoopy is pretty funny.

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
