You know you are cool when…..

1. You wake up your husband at 1 a.m. to watch Biggest Loser with you followed by 2 episodes of 30 Rock.  Sorry about that honey, I am turning into an insomniac and it is so much more fun when you are awake with me too:)

P.S. I keep begging Billy to put in a punching bag in our treadmill room…..I want to learn how to box, I know you would be afraid of me in a dark alley.

2. You think about all the green food you are going to eat in honor of St. Patty’s Day but completely forget to put on ANYTHING green…..Food>Getting Pinched.

3. You have a cup of sugar in your purse.  Allison asked me to bring it over for the cookies she was making on Monday and then didn’t need it after all and I haven’t taken it out because A) I am too lazy and B) You never know when you might need a cup of sugar to brighten your day.

4.  You ask your readers that haven’t become followers yet to hurry and do so because my sister won’t become a follower of the blog until there are 999 followers so she can be number 1000…..we will show her muhahaha:)

Did you watch Biggest Loser this week?  What did you think?

-Their transformations are amazing I loved hearing about how there chances for diabetes and heart disease lowered and that their life expectancy increased but A LOT of years….oh, and the cod dishes that they made during the challenge had my stomach growling at 2 a.m.

Did you remember to wear green today?  Anything special for St. Patty’s Day?

-I ate 3 times as much broccoli, spinach and trident watermelon gum than usual…..for the Holiday’s sake, I mean I am not obsessed with those green items or anything.

What is the most random thing in your purse right now?

-Besides sugar….4 empty sample cups from Costco (to lazy to find a trash can).

Love that they focused on weight loss rather than the game this week. I wish it was like that every week.
No green – I am lame that way.
Nothing random in my purse but I did carry around my immunization record for two weeks because I was too lazy to put file it. Your sister better get on the folowing thing. You'll be past 1000 in no time.

Does it make me nerdy that I love seeing a new post come up and being the 1st person to comment?

I love watching the biggest loser. Do you think there's a relationship brewing between Courtney and Austin?

I didn't wear green today till I made a shamrock pin w/ my 1st graders and they ALL made sure to pinch me!

Most random thing in my purse is my computer charger. No computer just the charger. Oh and 5 million different food samples from my trip to Costco w/ my Mom :)

The most random thing in my purse right now is a bag full of melted fudge– I have yet to take it out. My granny made it for me, I put it in my purse, forgot about it, and then left my purse in the car.

oh man i love biggest loser, so good.

i also forgot to wear green today, but i'm irish so i get a blanket excuse i think…

my bag is kind of like a pharmacy counter right now because i have a cold so all the essentials got packed day quill, sudafed, mucinex. Oh and i have granola and dried apricots in my bag which is kind of random.

I should have reminded you at spin to wear green! I'm wearing green scrubs, green jewelry and green socks. Might as well go all out right?! My mom and i went to pizza factory and ate huge helpings of salad bar. Lots of spinach! :)

I haven't been watching BL religiously this year. :(

I switched purses this morning so it's pretty clutter free. I love that you had sample cups from Costco. lol.

I was such a Biggest Loser fan until I married Tom. He hates the show. So naturally, I haven't watched an entire season. BUT, I do catch it every now and again, and it is amazing!

Totally forgot about the green today.

Most random thing: A week old scone sample from Panera that I have forgotten aobut.

Reply

1. no biggest loser for me! i always forget that it's on. bad, bad :(

2. i wore green stripes today! a coworker of mine wore a green flower shirt and sparkly four leaf clover earrings. she won.

3. the most random thing in my purse right now is an empty tin of tetley's peppermint green tea. SO. GOOD. i brought it to work and i drink it constantly, which means i pee constantly. today marks the end of the tea however. i had the last one.

going crazy in 5…4…3…

enjoy your night!

Don't whip out that bag of sugar while any cops are watching haha ; )

I almost forgot to wear something green… But then my hubby reminded me by pinching me when our alarm went off at 4am… Apparently I was supposed to wear green jammies to bed :D

In my purse I have 12 tubes of chapstick… oops!

Reply

totally forgot to wear green but my hair tie is green…does that count?? haha. I also ate a green apple so that should definitely count. most random thing in my purse is probably like three month's worth of old mail…I do not know why I cannot throw it away??? I always think I am going to need it at some point..ummmm probably not!

have a good night!!

Most random thing….I would say coupons for Subway because for some reason $5 footlongs dont seem to be cheap enough for me. Lame right!? HAHAHA

You would be a great boxer, I wouldn't take you! I for sure wore green and had an all green salad for lunch! Plus peanut butter for a snack which there was some celery under…somewhere.

I want a punching bag too!! I need to learn how to box. It looks like so much fun (and such a good workout). I love Cara, she is sweet AND beautiful. :)

Yep…these are random. :)

I don't have a purse!!!

I have a green hair boinger in. =D And we are eating Irish burritos tonight.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I watched the Biggest Loser last night too….I definitely cried at the end! I did not wear green today but I work tonight and I am def going to sport some green scrubs! I have a flashlight in my purse…don't ask! haha!

Reply

I have not been sleeping well these past few nights either, but I don't think my husband would club me if I wanted to watch TV with him at that hour of the night!

I didn't wear green, but thankfully only one student pinched me because our school is a "pinch-free school" according to our principal!

Reply

very true..you never know when you may need a random cup of sugar from your purse:) hahaI didn't see the biggest loser yet, but I'm absolutely addicted to that show (so is my mom!!) oh yeah, and YES i ate tons of broccoli (1 1/2 bags frozen broccoli!) and also wore my green xc shirt! woop woop go irish!

Reply

I looove the cup of sugar in your purse!!! :D I think I've got some granola bars and empty candy wrappers in mine right now…

MM girl. Can I still send a race photo? I actually just featured my favorite one on my blog today-and I'm wearing green bahaha.

You never know when you'll hungry for sugar for real. Or when you'll need to make cookies!

Reply

I am into the boxing part of BL too! Looks like a blast and a total body workout. The contestants faces change so much–but I love the new confidence the gain as they get more fit! Evolving leaders, fighters, learning to do something for YOU, and belief!

I hope your sleep patterns regulate–no likey insomia. Are you still doing your 20 mins of mental break/meditation??

Reply

I haven't watched this week's Biggest Loser yet…it's waiting for me on my DVR. I did remember to wear green today. And wore green on my run and will wear green when we go out tonight. I am cool.

I ate tons of spinach in honor of St Pattys…. :)

I did wear green today – I had to! It's the teacher in me! :)

Hey… Coy is my girl. Miss her!

I am such a boring mom, all I did for my girls was Lucky Charms for breakfast. Blah.

We're totally going to learn how to box soon. The wee girl is WAY into it! She even made her own punching bag out of a humongous duffel bag and she stuffed it with old clothes.

Do you live in Utah? I grew up in Orem. All my family still lives out there. I noticed you ran SLC… I ran it back in 2007, and am running it again next month with 2 sisters. WOOT.

I'll be out in Utah in one week for the 50M ultra on Antelope Island. <3

The most random thing in my purse right now is some pepper spray that my mom forces me to carry. I guess it makes sense safety-wise, but I have NO idea how to use it and THAT is why it's random and useless.

Reply

I got in all my favorite greens today: broccoli, spinach, and avocado!
I can't believe you're so close to 1000, you need to celebrate once you reach it.

Reply

I am coming to Utah tomorrow, so wish I could meet you!!!! jessa.ann77@gmail.com is my email. My husband has been working in Logan for a while now.

Reply

I would love to have a punching bag in my room. It helps get out so much pent up stress…for me at least haha

I watch Biggest Loser, but for some reason I just can't get into it this season. I don't think I like how they added new trainers. It threw me off.

The most random thing I have in my purse right now is probably a ticket that I got. I just haven't paid it yet because im completely annoyed that this cop gave me a ticket. So maybe that is some rebellion in me…..bah.

Reply

Janae! Did you know you have 1885 subscribers on google reader? Tell your sister you have almost 3000 altogether, and that waited wayyyyyy too long.

Reply

DEFINITELY watched the biggest loser! I liked this week's episode, I just wish that they had reached their goal so no one had to go home:(.

I did wear green, and ate some broccoli/avocado/lettuce/cucumber! Other than that, nothing special.

I love the picture of you and your sister!

Reply

i wore teal! and ate green peppers :)

Poor Billy! I want to learn to box too…I think it'd be an amazing wrkout! YOu and your sister are both so pretty! Happy Friday girl!

I wore a green celtic cross necklace… and green underwear. And I made two green margaritas at work.

Random things in my purse: a ziplock with splenda, Zheng Gu Shui (an analgesic lotion from my acupuncturist), anti-flamme ("herbal relief cream), biofreeze, cotton rounds, a roll of prewrap and a roll of.. I guess medical tape? Tiger balm, hot hands warmers, and a bag of pens plus a wine opener and name tag. Ooo, and I just found two advil migraine!

I'd only be scared of you in a dark alley if I had a bag of skilltels in my hand and you were hangry. Actually..I'd just give it up because you can run faster than me…um..most people.

I forgot all about it being St. Patty's day, but I still happened to dress in green! Bwahaha!

I've been known to eat sugar plain, so it would be dangerous for me to have that bag of sugar in my purse :)

You're crazy to wake up at 1 to watch t.v! Ahhh, you just wait until you have a baby and experience waking up at all hours of the night and then sleep won't be a problem when you can get it. :) I have many many random things in my purse. Right nowI suppose the most random is the empty container of the paint sample that I used to paint my kitchen. I took it back to get more and it is still in there.

Love you and your blog, it always makes me feel better. Your such a great friend :)

Wow great post race pics! I have never bought a race photo as either I dont look like I am running, or I look like I am about to throw up! Not good!

BAHAHAAH acup of sugar in your purse -you win!.. i forgot to wear green! i was pinched badly- no fun :(
oh and i actually dnt carry around a purse unless its 100% necessary- im too lazy… coat pockets are enough for me :D

Reply

Didn't watch Biggest Loser. I'm working too much to catch much TV right now. I did remember to wear green. I don't carry a purse, so stuff has to be in my pockets :) Not much random in there unless a memory stick counts.

Wii boxing is a blast. When I do the rythym boxing I get all tangled up in myself. I have no rythym.

Reply

I would totally be scared of you in a dark alley. I mean really look at your face on that treadmill. LOL
I did wear green and wear green every day(my eyes) and enjoyed a great date with my running partner Milo at the park with a doggie date.
I have a really funny picture of me in a race but can't figure out how to send it to you. =)

Reply

I try to catch the Biggest Loser, but I missed it this week :( I have some cod I need to make, too! Dang it, I wish I would've seen how they cooked it!

Didn't wear green yesterday because I don't own anything green…weird! But, all the kids were dressed in green and I ate about 5 platefulls of green veggies, so I consider that ok :)

Random thing in purse…hmmm…I have so many. Probably a tooth fairy pouch I used to have my kids put their teeth in that they lost. I had nowhere else to hide it & I just haven't taken it out after 10 years…even though I've changed purses a bazillion times. I'll probably pull it out when they're off to college someday and cry that they're all grown up! Also, some prunes, LOL!!

Reply

we used to have a punching bag in our basement when I was living with my parents. My brother used it and it would shake the house.

You are definitely cool!

Reply

I did wear green, but we didn't do anything special. It's hard being old marrieds.

Hmm, the weirdest thing in my purse is probably a pair of dirty socks. I forgot to take them out after bowling. And, eww, that is really gross. I should do something about it.

Reply

I love love love The Biggest Loser! After watching all the contestants learn to box, I so want to learn how to do that too!
I didn't have any green on for St Patties Day, I don't own hardly any green clothes
Right now there isn't anything weird in my purse, just a whole lot of stuff! lol

Reply

– You must still be newly weds of a couple of years, wait till you married longer, and he wont be so willing to wake up at 1am to watch tv

– I did watch, sad to see the mother of the house go home

– I forgot to wear green, I ate veggie lausgna that had spinach in it, does that count?

– What a purse?

– How is the quad, I didnt get your email to see how its going

u r my idol….in running and life in general.
i think the bf would smother me with a pillow if i woke him up to watch the biggest loser with me at 1 am. hahhahahah

have a great weekend~!

Is that a dinosaur on your shirt in the picture with your sister?? Where does one find this!?

Reply

A roll of hockey tape, at least a half a cup of sand or fine gravel, toothpaste, an arrowhead??, 4 pieces of unwrapped gum and $40 worth of loose change-no quarters because I used them all in the candy machines at the mall:)

Hope your quad is cooperating! I've been thinking about you a lot:)

Thanks for posting my pic!!!

I stopped watching BL. After last season it became too much of a game and the wrong people were being sent home. Plus I don't like having two new trainers. BL has officially jumped the shark.

No green for me. I'm a Scot ;)

Randome thing in my purse would be my yogurt smoothie I forgot about. Whoops.

Reply

Great post!!! Haha poor Billy!!!

I do watch BL but this will absolutely be the last season. It's so melodramatic at this point and drives me nuts! I do like watching their transformations though!

I didn't wear green yesterday but I do have green in the tattoo on my wrist so I counted that. I also had a green beer!!

Randoms in my purse: Floss, half eaten bag of skittles…

Reply

I wore a lot of green yesterday and barely ate any greens, whoops. I will have to make up for that today!

My purse is filled with index cards, three different mp3 players and an ankle brace…random.

Reply

I've been watching the Biggest Loser and it was sad to see the mom go home, but it also made sense, she's going to do great on her own.

I did wear green for St. Patty's Day and other than eating lots of green stuff I didn't do anything else to celebrate.

The most random thing in my purse would have to be a Hot Wheels car.

Learn how to box! Its the best workout for your core and back and arms! And you feel really tough!!

A couple of things…

I so want Kristie's medal! That thing is awesome!

I did kickboxing and it was a.m.a.z.i.n.g! Kicked my butt every time! Google a place near you that offers it and do it. So fun!
