Let’s be honest, I have a lot more free time on my hands which means I take even more pictures throughout the day of the random things that occur. I am sorry but you are just going to have to suffer through way too many pictures for the next 8 weeks.
I started off yesterday with hungryrunnersister for a weight session at the gym. Since I am such a goal oriented person I have made a goal that is going to kick my trash and I can’t wait. I can currently do 10 boy push-ups in a row but that is all going to change. My goal is ONE HUNDRED push-ups in a row. Give me a couple weeks and I WILL get there. (P.S. The doc said pushups are more than okay for the leg that decided to turn on me and make me a hater….which it has failed to do.)
After the gym we took my parents some lunch because they were working hard with clients all day and had no time to get lunch and then the sister treated me to my favorite. A pan full of broccoli will win my heart over every time. She puts a layer of garlic (I am talking thick here) and tops it with broccoli and roasts it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Billy probably won’t want to kiss me for a few days but dang…..garlic is amazing!
That would be a teriyaki chicken breast from Costco on the side.
Nap time occurred shortly after. We cuddled up on her bed and watched ‘Chopped’ and ’16 and Pregnant’ as we ate chocolate chips straight from the bag.
The niece has changed from her hat obsession (mainly because we hid it) to wearing these DARK sunglasses all day long, even inside. She may have ran into the wall a few times because of them and yes, I am an evil aunt and laughed my head off.
My sister, the coupon queen, scored a $15 gift card for only $5 to a local bakery and we had to spend all $15 at once. I just had to get two treats whether I wanted to or not. The cupcake was so so but that coconut bar in the back is what heaven’s doors are made of. Must replicate (if you have a good cookie bar recipe please send it to me. I must have these in my life more often…..that is until I meet with the nutritionist:)
She is a smart girl and chose a homemade oreo and I think I stole a bite, I can’t remember but I think I loved it a lot.
I came home and got ready to teach spin. I am going to continue to teach spin because I honestly LOVE it. The endorphins from my spinees absorbed into my skin and I left class feeling awesome. I can’t have tension or come out of the saddle and if it hurts at any point I STOP but it is good to get the blood flowing to heal these bones of mine asap.
Once again, thank you so much everyone for the comments, emails, tweets, texts, pictures and to Bess for putting together an amazing HUGGING post for me (go check it out!!!)…..she is the sweetest thing in the world.
And thank you SO much Julia, Rachelle, Jen,Megan, Ash for restocking the 3 C’s (candy, cookies and clothes) stash and listening to me complain for hours on end. I don’t know how I ever lived without the blogging community.
You HAVE to check out Jen’s AMAZING GIVEAWAY. She is giving a GARMIN, Spibelt and the cutest shirt ever away. Do not miss out on her crazy awesomesauce blog and giveaway. You will fall in love with this woman!
Do you like garlic?
-Oh yeah baby!
What show are you embarrassed that you love to watch?
-16 and Pregnant and The Hills (man, I miss that show).
What is one of your FITNESS goals right now?!?!
-100 push-ups in a row that would make a Navy SEAL jealous.
Who wants to join me with the push-up challenge and I can post pics of your awesome guns!!!!!
I have a serious Bridezillas obsession. It's like a train wreck – I just can't look away
OMG, I so love The Hills, too! I watch reruns all the time. I also love Teen Mom and all those Challenge shows on MTV.
Your niece is TOO CUTE! I love little kids in sunglasses for some reason :)
What a challenge!! My guns are pathetic so i'm totally in!! plus I need a new challenge now that my marathon's over!
Your friends are so LOVELY for looking after you so well, but that's only because you're a LEGEND. When you're fully recovered you are going to SMASH NY this autumn.
And i LOVE the hills. I make my boyfriend watch reruns with me and he always complains but I know he's obsessed too ( I keep catching him humming the theme tune)
Emily @ eat.drink.run.
Love garlic!! I had some serious garlic in my dinner last night and came home breathing fire on my bf.
I love the 100 push up fitness goal – I used to do lots of push ups every day and I'm not sure why I stopped. I think my goal will be to get my split back…I used to have it in high school but am now pretty far away from being able to do one. Thanks for the motivation – goals are fun!
I can pretty much get sucked into any trashy show if I sit there long enough. I still love the Kardashians even though they have so many spin off shows its ridiculous.
I also must say that I'm jealous that your fam lives so close and you get to see your sister and work out with her all the time. My sister is in Virginia and I'd give anything to see her more and have her be my lifting buddy!
Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner)
WOAH seriously I can't even do 10 boy pushups!! 10 girly ones is hard enough!! :P I will JOIN YOUR though because lets be honest my 'guns' are more like water pistols in comparison! BRING IT ONNNN:)
Great Blog. Good luck with your running.
The Jogger Blogger
LOVE me some garlic! Poor hubs:)
I watch 16 and Pregnant, too. I may or may not watch True Life if it's a "good" topic (they're all so bad, they're good!) Something about watching other people male poor decisions makes me feel good, isn't that awful?!
I just found your blog thru Muncher Cruncher/Megan and I love it. I'm so sorry a/b your fracture! I don't know your friends name but I heart her shirt….BOOMER SOONER! :-)
Hope you have a good day! So fun to have your sister close to you! We left you a virtual hug on our blog!
This is a free program to get to 100 push-ups, totally doable! http://hundredpushups.com/
omg I LOVE garlic! love love love. guess it's a good thing (or reason why) I'm single! HAHA.
Have you see Jess @ Blonde Ponytail's 100 pushup challenge? I checked it out – that junk looks hard. I've thought about trying it out myself, I don't know if I can even do ONE!
GOOD LUCK LADY! Keep that smile on!
Love garlic? I sleep with it! JK.. Funny because I just started doing pushups too! Being my legs well.. you know. I do 10 push ups when ever I think about it. Yesterday I did 30. I want to make it to 100 too! Hey at least my arms will be pumped!
Jogging with Fiction
I LOVE garlic! I ran out recently, though, so I had to make garlicless calzones last night. Just not the same!
I'm embarrassed to watch Jerseylicious, but it's too good not to!
I'm actually already doing the 100 push up challenge!
I love garlic but HATE the taste it leaves in your mouth the next morning…
I'm sort of embarrassed that I still like to watch the Fairly Odd Parents…
Love garlic! I will have to hold off on the push up challenge until my back recovers. Your neice is adorable. I miss my daughter being that age.
I'd love to join you for a pushup challenge! One of my goals for this year was to be able to do one complete (unassisted) pullup by the end of the year, but so far I've been staying in hotel gyms that don't have any kind of bar I can use to practice.
Woohoo for more pictures! And, as always, you are adorable!
I LOVE garlic. Whenever I make a new recipe, I automatically double whatever amount of garlic it calls for. Seriously. Love.
I'm embarrassed that I watch Glee….although it's so much fun!
I can't believe your shooting for 100 boy pushups! I'm lucky if I can do 2! Maybe my new goal should be to develop some sort of upper body strength…
I love garlic! I'm 1/2 Korean so I have no choice…genetically inclined!
I will join you on the push-up challenge! getting a stronger upper-body is a goal of mine!! I have strong legs but a weak upper body. Still can't do a pull-up!
Your sis is a sweetheart and you are soo blessed to have such a wonderful,supportive family and friends!! You reap what you sow and the seeds that you've planted (friendship,kindness) has turned into a beautiful garden. Your "flowers" in your garden are soo beautiful!! :)
love ya "Mrs. Janae speedy Jacobs!!" xo :)
Garlic is one of my favorite things I ever. When cooking, I usually increase the amount I use by 50% over what the recipe calls for. :)
I'm not really a tv person…does Glee count as embarrassing?
I was so excited this morning to see your new arms fitness goal–I talked to my trainer this morning about FINALLY getting strong enough to do a pull up. It's on!
hundredpushups.com is awesome!! It's a 6 weeks program and it is definitely hard!!! I'm at week 4 and it KILLS! You start at the level you are at and it gets harder each week. I think it is a great and potentially safe way to not overdue yourself. We don't want you hurting your shoulders!
I am in for the push up challenge. I use to be able to do 100 but then it hurt my shoulder, time to try again. I am good with garlic in small amounts. I love train wreck tv shows.
I'm in for the push up challenge!! Maybe then I'll be able to actually do a pull up.
So first off i want to say I am OBSESSED with your blog. I Love it! You are soo funny and inspirational. Secondly I was reading your post today and I saw something that made me super excited, other then seeing mass amounts of candy, one being sour patch kids (my favorite)! I see that your sister is wearing an OU t-shirt. Is she a fan?? I am a BIG fan, like super fan. Yeah lameo but I just have to know! Also i am soo sorry about Boston. Your right, Boston will always be there and the fact you made it into Boston should make you smile. Thats a BIG accomplishment and not many runners can say that they made it into such a prestigious race. You definitely are an inspiration.
You're way cool in case no one ever told you ;)
I love garlic too! Ashamed to admit I watch American Pickers on the History Channel! Super fun show!
So, I have a question…how are you liking those new kicks you're wearing??
100 pushups!! Wow!!! That's is an AWESOME GOAL!!!! I'm so happy you are still so goal oreintated and positive!
Love garlic (probably a little too much)!
Have a great day :)
YAY! so gladyou saw the hugs post!!i was sending you LOVE!!
I LOVE garlic!!! tis very nice!!
fitness goal= 1/2 marathon!
Good luck on the push up challenge!
I am following this program: 100 pushups: http://hundredpushups.com/…you can pick the level you are on and go from there. I just started this week but I am excited because I am such a weakling and want to be able to do more boy-push ups.
Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner
I just finished the 100-push up challenge. Sadly I'm not yet at 100 :(
I'm going to repeat some weeks. My arms really do look bigger, I'm basically a crazy machine now. Glad you had such a happy day with the sister. Your niece is my accessories hero. Adorable!
I'm loving your sister's OU shirt, Boomer Sooner!
I LOVE garlic!!! Current fitness goal – Pittsburgh Marathon in May! I would love to be able to do 100 push-ups with you – right now I am at like 10 or so GOOD ones. Let's do it!!! ;)
Jenny @ The Jenny Adventure
I love garlic too! I am actually from "The Garlic Capital of the World"–Gilroy, CA. LOL Silly but true. : )
I'm embarrassed that I used to watch the Kardashians. Not having cable in our new house took care of that! ; )
Fitness goal right now is to get stronger and maintain my cardio.
100 pushups sounds tough! I might give it a try though. : )
Garlic is mm mmm good. I like all trash reality TV and I'm proud of it :)
I can do about 25 push-ups at the moment, but I want to do more! I will 100% join you on the 100 push-ups challenge! Any guidelines?!
I used to do the push ups program but I stopped somewhere in week 3. I should get back to it!
Oh my goodness! You use awesomesauce too! AHHHH. I love it. Everyone always judges me when I use it though. :(
I was doing the 100 push-up thing for a while and then I stopped for a bit, but Imma get back on it :D Guns for Summa :D
I'm on week 2 of the push ups challenge! We can be tortured, I mean, get buff together! And keep our minds occupied, right!
I love all your random pictures. My little girl loved this ugly polka dot dress that she wore every stinking day it was clean. I finally hid it too.
i have been wanting to do the 100 push up challenge for forever… I just keep saying I will start tomorrow. So you should do it so I can hold myself accountable!!!
Jenn @ A Runner's Road
Just found your blog and I.Love.It! Good luck on the push up challenge….My fitness goal is to be able to complete a 5K in May…newbie runner here! I am forced to love garlic as I married into an italian family so hubby uses it in EVERYTHING. And Jersey Shore is my embarrassing show, but I am addicted!
I'll join you in the challenge….Thinking of you girlie. can you feel my huge hugs?!! And yep, pretty sure that by you linking Jen's giveaway, my chances just greatly decreased by A LOT!!!! ha ha. You have more faithful followers than anyone I know…..almost cult like really…the WE LOVE Janae cult. just teasing. ;) You are loved though…greatly. I'm so impressed with how many people out there love you.
Okay, yes on garlic sometimes. i'm kind of embarrassed to watch the Bachelor and that (i read the Twilight series) shhhh. :)
First of all I love that Hungryrunnersister is wearing an OU shirt. Boomer Sooner!
Second, it's not a tv show but I made a date with my daughter to go see Prom when it comes out.
Garlic? Yes, please.
Fitness goal – PR in my next half (shouldn't be hard since it's only my second)
Push-ups- hate 'em but I've been working on them. I will join you in your challenge. No more sissy girl ones for me.
I love garlic, but not my breath afterwards :) I watch all the embarrassing shows… 16 and preggo, Teen Mom, The Hills (which I miss, too).
I am currently on week 5 of the pushup challenge and LOVING IT!!! I started being able to only do 23 pushups and now I am up to 60! Plus I can def. see positive changes in my shoulders…perfect timing for tube tops and sundresses!
Best of luck as you start…you are going to kick butt!!!
brooke @ E.F.F.
Can I just say, HOORAY for your niece wearing a cardinals shirt. a girl after my own heart. and HOORAY for your super positive attitude.
Good luck with the 100 push ups. You will have to post a video of you doing it!
Ohh I love garlic….Dang, 100 push-ups? You go girl! My current fitness goal is 200 miler relay. Maybe I should add the hundred push-ups to my goals too. How bad ass would it be to do 100 push-ups….I used to watch Jersey Shore a lot, but it was entertaining.
Garlic.is.bomb. Love it on nearly anything and everything and I always double or triple the amount called for in recipes.
I'm definitely in for the 100 pushup challenge – I used to be able to do 100 but haven't tried in a while. My guess is that 50 would be all I can do with good form, but I'm going to try tonight and I'll let you know tomorrw. I love some pushups!
I am embarrassed that I enjoy watching ANTM and Project Runway – I hate all the drama, but the results amaze me. I also love watching the old "teeny-bopper" shows from my era – Saved by the Bell, What I Like About You (okay, maybe that was after my teenage years, still love it), Fresh Prince – but I'm not embarrassed bc these are awesome.
Have a FABULOUS day!
Tessa @ Amazing Asset
I would love to partake in the 100 pushup challenge! I can barely do about 8 regular pushups right now, so I do have a longgg way to go. The only way to get better though is to practice! Great idea for something to do :)
I am embarrassed that I still watch America's Next Top Model, and that I obsessed with the Bachelor and Bachlorette!
I'm doing the 100 pushups program too! So hard! Good luck on your goals. Before you know it these 8 weeks will be over and you'll be back to running. :D
You know that when you hit your 100-pushup goal we all expect another vlog to prove it, right? If we don't see it, we won't believe it!
I put garlic on EVERYTHING and chopped raw garlic on my salad, hubby loves it too annnnd 2 garlic heads cancel each other out!
Anything Kardashian. I love them and wish we could all be friends.
My fitness goal is to be more like you! I wanna get faster!
I hate pushups, I suck at pushups, me and upper body strength don't like each other… Im in!
You and your sister are so cute. I love that you workout together. Makes me so happy because I love working out with family.
I am obsessed with garlic, like I think it is a problem. Love it!
I just love you Janae! Please stay positive and remember that you are my inspiration. Have a fabulous Thursday.
Lindsay and James Cotter
so glad you are still able to spin, well somewhat. You can feel that motivation from you class. I bet they love you even more for it!
Love garlic and love Jersey Shore (even though they both STINK!).
I am all over the push-ups. With your running ability and my guns/push-up ability, we could rule the world, you and I. Try some with a giant exercise ball (http://www.shapefit.com/chest-exercises-push-ups-feet-on-exercise-ball.html) and you'll get to 100 in no time. Good luck!!
I roast whole cloves of garlic and eat it like candy….SO DELICIOUS! (good thing my husband loves it to)
I know it is weird since I am a gal in my 30's so I don't know if I should be embarrased or not but I love PAWN STARS….I don't know why.
My fitness goal now is to run for an hour without getting bored. I am a newbie be kind LOL! The 100 Push Up Challenge makes me want to die thinking about it but now I want to try it so I will join you in this endeavor
I love 16 and Pregnant as well as Teen Mom. It's like a train wreck you just can't look away!!
Hope you're feeling better! You have so much life in front of you to run Boston! ;)
I'm not a big fan of garlic, but Billy loves it so our kitchen smells like it at least a couple of times a week. One of my fitness goals is yoga 3 times/week and CrossFit 2 times. Branching out from the running rut. I also want to ride my bike at least 40 miles/week. I'm so glad you can still teach spin to stay active! Praying everyday for you to heal ASAP. xo
I LOVE GARLIC!!! haha and I go through like a HUGE thing of it Sam's every 2 months. no big deal.
I cant wait to actually come to your spin class. hopefully next week pretty friend :)
I love watching the hills! I sometimes rewatch old episodes on netflix! I am really excited to watch Audrina's new show too :)I just know you are going to ROCK your pushups and accomplish your 100 pushups in a row goal girl! I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
Ranting Raving Running
If you have an Iphone, there's a great app on there called "100 pushups" that's done wonders for me! I've never ACTUALLY made it to 100 consecutive pushups, but my arms got much more toned.
Wishing SL and Provo were closer so I could take one of your spin classes. Through your blog I can tell you have amazing energy!
Oh, and amen to gahhhlic!
Haley @ Climb Run Lift Mom
I think I'm going to try the 100 push up challenge again. I've tried a couple times but once I get to around 30 it gets really tough, lol!!
And if your in SLC you need to go Cakewalk Vegan Bakery!! Best. Cupcakes. Ever!!
Rose @ Eat, Drink, and Be Meiri
I will totally join you in the push up challenge.
Which means I have to figure out how many I can do right now. Ug oh.
first, i love your blog! i only have a few that i read every day, and you better believe you have one of those coveted spots. i'm really sorry to read that you won't be running boston. i have a quad strain that is keeping me from training for the seattle rock-n-roll half marathon, so i can sympathize. but what i wanted to pass along is an awesome song. you say you love music and that it can really change your mood, try the song "the show goes on" by lupe fiasco. i think the title sort of sums up what we need to remember when we are sidelined by an injury.
:) You make me smile. I can do about 15 push ups in a row without stopping. They're HARD!!!
I love Teen Mom!
I'm totally in on the push-up challenge. Bring it!!
(and I'm embarrassed to admit that I love watching Americ's Next T)op Model.
Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife
LOVE garlic! I watch drop dead diva and LOVE it. I will do the challenge with ya-guns, here we come!
I accept your challenge! I hate but love push ups. I can do 30 men's pushups straight and used to do 50 so definitely want to get back into it.
What's the time frame you're giving yourself to get to 100?
What a great fitness goal!! Maybe I'll join you, but first I got to try to do push-ups every night… It's gunna be hard!
Way to set new fitness goals! I love that you are so hardcore! Can I be more like you please?
I am ashamed to say that I love the Bachelor. I always tell myself I am not going to watch another season, but I always do!
I love garlic!
I don't even think I can do 5 pushups, let alone 100.
I used to watch 16 and pregant. Now I watch OC Real Housewives, Ruby, Miami Housewives. I think that's all my current stuff that dan calls "junk"
Your gonna be so ripped, lol! I gave you a virtual hug on my blog! Hope you get better asap!
You're gonna be a push-up monster! I can only do 10 or so but would love to knock out 50 in a row.
Great new goal! That (and eating all that candy :) ) will definately help keep your mind off not running a bit. I love it that you have such drive! I'm actually already doing the 100 push-up challenge, I started on Monday. So I will be joining you. I could do 35 to begin, because I do push-ups regularly, but 100 still seems like so many! Are you following the 100 push-up challenge website? I'm kind of sad I missed getting my hug in Bess's hug post, I'm still gonna send you a hug anyways though!
Oh, and I LOVE garlic! I love watching the Kardashians and Real Housewives reality shows. My goals are 100 push-ups and to run my half marathon in sub 1:35 next month!
I like garlic but haaaaate having the smell on my hands from chopping it. Ya know?
We dont have cable, only the few local channels so i watch "hanbnh montana" on saturdays. Aghhhhh!!!
I will totally do the pshup challenge with u! Since doing p90x i am loving the upper body strength!!!
Mmmm broc and garlic? Yes please.
Check out onehundredpushups.com
I may or may not be addicted to Teen Mom. :)
Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter)
You are going to look ripped with all those push-ups. I mean you already look great, but seriously push-ups do such amazing things for the upper body.
Can I come hang out with you, your sister, and your niece? Your house sounds like so much fun. I'll bring the broccoli. :)
Guilty pleasure – any reality show starring a Kardashian. Hoping Bruce will come out with his own soon. Miss him!
Your goal can be to do 100 push ups. Mine will be do to 10. I AM IN!
I'm in! I can do about 20 at a time now, and I was considering doing the 100 pushups program. This will push me into it! Stronger back – here I come!
Garlic: no can do. gives me migraine.
show: just one?? oh boy, you know I watch the Bachelor..I saw all seasons.I watch the housewives of OC, don't tell anyone…I watch Tori and Dean..I don;t know why, at least I don't watch Jersey shore right?
push up…my max of men push up is maybe 3.13
I broke both my wrists it is hard to do those
did you see a few people posted nice comments for you on my blog also yesterday. You have a lot of fans my dear who are rooting for your comeback! NYC!
Oh my goodness, I can't even believe your drive! It's so hard for me to even want to go to the gym, and then i read this and realize that's a horrible excuse! Oh man, I totally miss the hills too. It was on tv the other day and you better believe I watched every episode they were showing.
Neon Blonde Runner
Girl, that's a wonderful goal!!
You are going to be RIPPED!
100 pushups lady! Man, hopefully you recover quickly, because I'm thinking once you can do 100 seal-pushups world domination won't seem like an unreasonable goal…
Small suggestion/I'd like to see comment – I can see that your blog isn't exclusively about running, but maybe as you're taking time to focus on injury prevention, etc, you could give us all a quick rundown of your stretching routine – pre/post?
Love your attitude! Keep on trucking!
Kate (What Kate is Cooking)
You will rock the 100 pushups! I can barely do more than a few at a time :)
Amanda - RunToTheFinish
i am loving the hugging posts, you are so right the blogging community is wonderful. glad you are finding other ways to push yourself for now
Have you seen the 100 push up challenge guidelines here: http://hundredpushups.com/. I've never made it through myself, but have heard good reviews! :P
I ate chocolate chips straight from the bag after work today. It's the only way to do it ;).
adam and jess
sorry about your injury girl! i was out of town when you had that girls get together at yogurtland or else i would have been there in a second. when you do get back into running i would love to do some runs with you! stay positive, you're amazing!
I miss The Hills… but I miss Laguna Beach more!!
love garlic!!!! :)
OMG I can only do 2 right now, but I'll take the challenge too! What I really should be doing is an ab challenge with summer on the way.
p.s. I have a weird obsession with 16 and prego
That picture of your niece eating the oreo is ADORABLE. So quiet and innocent haha
