I'm Huuuuunngry!


Saturday:  Ran 5 miles with music
Sunday:  (total 8) 5 Miles by myself with music... ran by the house and picked John up for the last 3 miles (YIPPEE... he is running again and I am so proud of him! :o)
Monday: 45 min. Elliptical workout in the AM then Jillian Micheals DVD last night
Tuesday:  OFF


Ok, so I need some help!  I am running out of fuel when I hit about 6 miles!  My legs and my breathing are still great and feel like they can keep going, but I am getting sooooo stinkin' HUNGRY!!! Sunday, I ran by the house and picked John and grabbed some Powerade Zero, but the last 2 miles of that run all I thought about was FOOOOD!  I usually do GU, but I did not on this run!  I was shaky and miserable! 

What do you fuel yourself with prior to your runs?
-Lately, I have been eating a bagel thin with peanut butter 

Love these things!  Go HERE to find some great healthy recipes from their website!

Last night I did the Jillian Michaels DVD!  It was OK!  I am not too impressed YET!  The DVD has 4 weeks or 4 levels.  I started with Level 1 and it was super easy.  My complaint right is that I have to do that same workout EVERYDAY for Week 1 and then Week 2 is different.  I don't like constantly repeating something so after 2 days of it... I am kind of bored with it!  I can't say too much because John said "I don't know why you bought that, we have a gym membership!" WOOPS!  I think if I just skipped Level 1 and went to Level 2 maybe I would feel differently!  I looked at the meal plan that she provides it was really good, but I don't cook that much soooooooo!  
More feedback on this later!


is On!! (I cry nearly every Tuesday)

Who is your favorite Player this season?
-Haven't decided yet!  I think I like Moses the best, right now!

It's Here!

YEA!  I don't think I have ever jumped out of the car as fast as I did when I saw that brown box sitting at the door!

I bet you can guess what my Friday night is going to consist of... Trying out my DVD, and I could not be more lame excited!
Details of the DVD coming SOON

Today was our first field trip of the year.  We went to Safety City!  My kiddos had a blast!  This place has a course set up that allows kids to learn how to walk and ride bikes on the streets.  So all the kids got to get on a bike and go around the course stopping at all the stop lights, stop signs, railroad crossings, and even bridges!  I thought it was very educational for all the kids!  
Thought this fit me best!  :o)

Hope you all had a great Friday!
If you are running tomorrow Good Luck and Have FuN!

Late night outting... well to me, anyways!

Came home from work today and all I wanted to do was 
SLEEP... after Spring Break (sleeping in until 9:30) and now waking up at 4:45 every morning, its kicking my booootay!

Finally, got my butt off the couch and went for a peaceful 5 mile run!  9:02 pace!  It was great and I didn't start until 8:00 PM!! (Remember I am sometimes in bed by 8:45) :o)

Boss Man is doing ALOT better!
Don't mind my shiny forehead and my watermelon clothing!

Hope you have a great Wednesday!
1 Day closer to Saturday... I get to tryout RED MANGO!  I am pretty darn excited about this!

Peace Out.. I have Spin in the morning!

Back In Action!

Today's workout:  Body Pump... I went up on my weights tonight!! YEA!

We made it back from Dallas... Lots of fun... and this is what it felt like all we did!!

Steak House that was originated in Alpine TX.  Super delish!  

I was ready to get back into town and NOT work out in this little bitty gym
Yep, that is right!  1  1980's treadmill, 1 1970 Eliptical, and 1 1930's bike that was out of commission! 
Let's just say working out was not high on their priority list at the hotel!  
Because your dying to see more pictures of ME and things that I bought!

I bought these shoes in one of those stand alone carts out in the middle of a mall!  These flips are so comfortable and they were made in Napol (or so they say) :o)
Reef Flip Flops!  Love these!  

What are your favorite brand of Flip Flops?
-Reef or Yellow Box... Love both of them!

Us at Chuy's!  

Well, we got home yesterday and picked Boss up at the Pet Resort and he wasn't feeling very good.  He came home and got in his crate and slept all night.  He hasn't eaten anything as of yesterday and today (he will drink a little milk and eat peanut butter with his pills).  He went back to the vet today and got a shot and some antibiotics.  He is running fever and still feeling like poo! So, he is not back in action!

Well, I am off to go catch up on my trashy Housewives of Orange County!
Would you rather hang out with 

Gretchen for the day

I would have to choose Gretchen... they are both the only normal ones on the show (well sorta), but Gretchen seems like she would be fun to hang out with for the day!

School and I are Back In Action and its kicking my booty!  Its 8:45 and YES, I am going to sleep!

Road Trippin'

Tomorrow morning John and I are headed off  for our little get away!  We are headed to Dallas for the weekend!  YEA!! I am ready to get out of town!  John will be attending the 

Good Guys car show
 While I do what I do best...
Shop... goes back to my Unnecessary Spending

I am so looking forward to a great weekend of relaxing and just hanging out together!  

Tonight for St. Patty's Day I decided that I would make some dip! I made homemade salsa for the first time! It was pretty tasty!

I think I chopped my ingredients too much, but it was still good!

1 Sweet Onion
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 Jalepeno Pepper (without seeds)
2 Large tomatoes
Some salt, pepper, and garlic salt

While making a list of all my ingredients that I needed, I remembered that our grocery store, United, was doing the pan give away.  They gave you a sticker for every 10 dollars you spent and when you received enough stickers you got a free cooking pan.  I saved enough stickers (130) for this cool pan

Thought it was pretty neat for being FREE (well, technically it cost me $1,300) Hope its worth it!

I also got my reading material for tomorrow
I have to have my celebrity gossip!

Ok, I do not like sweet tea, but someone told me about this tea in a can that is half and half.  Its half pink lemonade and half tea!  IT'S DELISH!  So this is my NEW traveling drink ONLY because if not I would drink it EVERYDAY!!!

Do you take reading material on Road Trips?
-Yes, because it keeps me from bother John the entire time!

Do you have anything special that you eat or drink ONLY on Road Trips?
-I usually eat Cherry Sours, but this trip its going to be my TEA!

If you are running a race this weekend
Good Luck and have FUN! :o)

Happy Green Day!

Hope everyone has a great 
St. Patrick's Day
Boss just LOVES when I dress him up!
I am off to go spray off our lawn furniture so that just MAYBE John will cook out tonight since its like 90 degrees here today!  I am LoViNg our weather right now!

Yesterday: I SHOPPED all day long... and I am not kidding!  My mom came and picked me up yesterday at 11:00 and we were shopping from the get go!  We finally found her a dress to wear to the wedding! (and of course I found me a few things) I did not get home until a little after 6!  LONG DAY!

Today:  Speedwork!  I ran to John's bank as fast as I could... which was about 2.5 miles.  The first mile was great the second got slower!  Oh Well!  Then I did 2.5 miles back home at about 8:50 pace!  5 miles total!  Then I have spin tonight!! I am starting to love spin!  :o)
Hope you all have a great Thursday! 
Only one more day left of Spring Break :o(

Movin' On Up!

Yesterdays workout:  Ran 6 miles/average pace 8:50 around the neighborhood with music.  It felt great!  This was the first run in a long time that I ENJOYED!  I don't know if it's because I am on Spring Break so I can run whenever I want, but it was relaxing and fun!  Then last night I went to Body Pump along with everyone else in our town!  It was sooo jammed packed in the room that I accidently bumped a lady on the head with my weight bar when laying down on the bench to do triceps!  WOOPS!  That is how close everyone was! 

Today's workout (so far):  I slept in because our late night Bachelor Party ended at 11:45 and lets just say I haven't stayed up that late in like MONTHS... (I know, sad)!  So the party did me in and I slept until 9:30!  I made it to the gym at 10:00 and did 2 miles in the Eliptical and 8 miles on the bike!  I was embarrassed because when I got off the bike I had major butt sweat!  EWWW! I have a run planned for tonight at my parents house (because, I have to be over there all day today.... so I need something to do to get out of the house for a bit :o)

Are you happy with who Brad Chose?

How did you feel about Emily on the After the Rose Ceremony show?
-Different... I thought Brad was totally REAL and her actions didn't seem that real!

Danielle  is doing a giveaway on her blog!  It's pretty awesome!  Go check out her blog and see what its all about!  

So... I am Movin' On Up in the blog world and I have 33 followers!  WOOHOO!  I never thought that I would have 5 followers; much less 33!  So when I hit 50 we are going to have a PaRtY!  AKA... GIVEAWAY!!! 
Well, I have to go get ready to head to L-Town to do shower registration jazz!  I can't believe that I am getting married in 
80 DAYS  :o)

Heres a sneak peak of my wedding shoes
Don't mind my ugly toes... just be glad I got a pedicure! :o)

Love, Love, Love THEM

P.S. Amazon is giving me a NEW DVD of my Jillian Michaels and it will be here on the 25th!!!!

Prairie Dog Run and Unnecessary Spending!

This morning was my 4 mile run!  It was great!  A little cold at the beginning, but perfect after it started!  I ran an 8:41 pace according to my Garmin!  It was great!  I even sped up the last quarter to half  mile to a 7:30 pace! I finished 2nd in my age group!

This is how we warm up!  

Take Off!  Our local running club FINALLY got Chip timing!  We are moving on up!

Coming In!


 Maricarmen ran the race also!  She works with my mom!  She rocked the race, and she is just too cute!

I am so glad that I have  huge support from John!  He woke up at 7:00 and got ready just to take pictures of me!  I love that he wants to go watch me run and has fun doing it!  
He even kept up with this dude for 2 hours while taking pictures of me!  

So, yesterday after school I went to Old Navy... just because I wanted to!  I bought a few shirts and a running top (like I needed another one)

Super Cute! I wore it today!  Loved it!  It cost me $8.50! Bargain Shoppin' right there!

Then I was reading on Crystal's blog about the Old Navy sale today! So Danielle and I went!  Of course, we didn't buy the $9 dresses we bought the more expensive (but, still cheap)!

These tank's were 5 buckaroos!  I bought some Friday after school, and then bought some more today!  AHHH!  Did I really need all these clothes... NOPE, but I wanted them! 

Well, tomorrow is John's Birthday!  He is turning the big 29!  

 Happy Birthday, John! :o)

Still no Jillian Michaels DVD (GRRRR!) So, I am going to try and do a long run tomorrow if I have time with all this partying we will be doing! I'll let you know how that turns out! 

Hope you have a great Saturday Night and Awesome Sunday!

Fantastic Friday!

YES!  Today is the day that I have been waiting for since Janurary (Christmas Break) 


Do you have any plans for Spring Break?

I have a race that I am running tomorrow in our local running club. 
It's called the Prairie Dog Run
I am running the 4 miles.  This race is where Crystal, Danielle and I always run, so I am not nervous about it (ok, I am always a little nervous)!  I used to always get REAL nervous right before a race, but I am gotten a lot better? These races only cost me $5!  Can't beat that!

Do you get nervous before races?

Do you have a race you are running this weekend?

Sooo, I ordered the Jillian Michaels DVD like 2 weeks ago and Amazon says it has been delivered... and guess who hasn't received it??? ME!  The day that it said it was "delivered" was a VERY windy day (Gust up to 50) so John thinks it blew away!  I don't think it blew away... soooo I don't know what is going to happen!  I JUST WANT MY DVD! 

Hope you have a great Friday and a great weekend! If you are running this weekend

Terrific Tuesday!

Everyday this week has to be a GrEaT day because... next week is 


Which means I get to do whatever I want for a solid week and of course catch up on a lot of this!
So, last week I started back to two a days!  YES, (not so much) I did two a days 3 times last week and so far everyday this week!  I go to the gym at 5:00 AM and do Body Pump or Cross Training (no running) and then at night I go running or do spin!  Tonight I did Spin with Mr. Yeller!  He yells a lot, but it felt great tonight!  I didn't feel like going after school today because I was being Negative Nancy, but I MADE myself go and I was sooooooo happy that I did!

This is how I felt during Spin... Lovely, I know!

I felt great after Spin!  

Ok, I sweat like a MAN!  

Does anyone else sweat like this???

So last week I ordered the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30! 
I haven't yet received it yet, but I can't wait to see how it works!! Hopefully, it gets here soon!!!

Have a  Wonderful Wednesday!

Lately, I have been dying to have coffee!  I USUALLY drink 1-2 cups every morning, but this week I have been in the NEED of coffee!  It is really the only thing that gets me through the day and not looking or feeling like this...
I have a Keurig Coffee maker and LOVE IT!
Here are a few of my favorites!!!!!!

I now have the mini-Keurig Coffe maker at school... Thats a bad idea! :o)

Do you drink coffee?

If so, how much?
-Try and limit myself to 1-2 cups a day!

Have you tried the Click Protein Powder that is coffee flavors?

-No, but I want too!
Skinny Runner says its delish!!!
