I woke up this morning to my alarm clock and realized my bladder was completely FILLED to the max. Don’t tell my doctor but I actually had to run to the bathroom or else we would have had to get our carpets cleaned. It may have been only 10 steps but considering the fact that it used to hurt to put my pants on because I had to stand on my left leg by itself…this is a HUGE improvement. I still won’t even attempt running until I get the doctor’s okay and that shouldn’t be for about 6 more weeks.
Made it to the gym and did 45 minutes on the elliptical. Um, the iPad is the best invention in the world. I was able to read blogs the entire time and I forgot I was even working out (hence the completely dry skin afterwards….guess I didn’t really workout that hard because I was too busy stalking:)
Get ready for Triple Tangent Tuesday. Just trying to help you and your family realize that compared to me (and my family) you are quite normal.
1. I drink a lot throughout the day, so much that I am probably drowning my own cells. I make my TA’s fill up my waterbottle at least twice during each class. This is probably why when I wake up I have to sprint to the bathroom.
2. On that note, now that it is warming up I am cutting my hot chocolate iv to just 72 ounces a day and now I am throwing in a few of these. Good thing we get them for free through my FIL’s work:)
I took this picture during study hall and I was trying to be discrete but 3 kids asked what the heck I was doing- now not only do they think I am a weirdo but slightly creepy for taking a picture of myself with crystal light.
3. We helped Billly’s brother make these rain boots. The animals are attached to velcro so that he could switch the animal (7 to choose from) to whatever his mood was for the day. Those are also bells at the top.
Just in case you were wondering how old he is…..this will help, actually maybe it won’t.
And this is why I get along with Billy’s family so perfectly. Footsie pajamas, animal rain boots and chocolate chip cookies. P.S. the polar bears on his pj’s glow in the dark in case you are looking into get a similar pair.
My school is putting on a 5K!!!!!! I wish so badly I could run it but if YOU CAN, you SHOULD!!! It is May 21 and all proceeds go to helping children in Africa. CLICK HERE to view race details/registration.
Don’t forget to check out my sister’s (okay, not blood related but she did live with us for a while) amazing Tips for Tuesday Photography Blog!!!!
Do you drink a lot o’ water throughout the day? Does it make you have to pee every 13 minutes too or do I just have the warning signs of diabetes?
Crystal light fan?
Tell me about your favorite pair of pj’s!!
-I love my brown Express velour pants (you have probably seen them on the blog at least a quitrillion times) and old race tshirts. That is pure comfort.
TELL ME SOME TANGENTS ABOUT YOU????
it's funny, two separate blogs have had the topic of how much water one drinks in them today. i do drink a lot, so much that it's annoying, and i have to dehydrate myself if i'm going on a car ride or hike where i won't have immediate 24/7 bathroom access.
my boyfriend owns a pair of pj pants with polar bears on them (still not footie pajamas, but the polar bears rock at least)
Okay, the same thing happened to me this morning. Which really irritated me, because I also had to get up in the middle of the night to pee. The worst thing is when you have a couple of dogs bouncing all over you.
I definitely drink a lot of water, and I have to have it with me at all times or I'll get grouchy.
Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn
I love the Billster's fambly!!! Those boots are so much fun. Slash I just got new rainboots but I guess they're not as classy as those ones? I drink so much water tooooo we should keep water drinking logs and make sure we're not turning into a bottle of water haha:)
My favorite pj's are my striped boxer shorts! J crew makes the bestttt ones:)
I am a teacher, too and it CRACKS me up that you took that picture in class. HA – your students must love you :)
annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife
I love, love water and crystal light!! I too have to pee all.the.time. ha
great pj pictures!!!
random tangent: I poured WAY too much balsamic vinegar on my salad today :(
Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner
Too funny–I posted today about how much water I drink and some formulas from Runner's World about how much we really need to drink–check it out!
Don't even get me started on my midnight toilet runs. Sometimes I swear I'm actually still asleep when I'm in the bathroom. Yikes!
yay for being able to run without excruciating pain!! if it helps i've been grounded because of it band blergness, so consider me your elliptical sister for at least a few weeks :)
the footie pajamas picture made me tuesday. simple as that.
i'm grateful for your awesome blog! hope tomorrow morning brings drama free trips to the bathroom
I comment on your blog every day but it never works! I think I figured it out.
I'm so glad to hear you are
recovering. Even if it is a little at a time :) 6 weeks will
I wear snowflake pj's ALL YEAR LONG!
LOVE crystal light lemonade!!
And I swear I drink at least a gallon of water a day. Thank goodness I have a camel bladder (so my mom always said), so I only have to go about every 48 minutes instead of every 13.
Free Crystal Light? Nice!
Nothing related to this particular post, but I saw an ENORMOUS bag of gummy bears at the grocery store today. We are talking HUGE! I thought of you and wished that I had my camera with me to take a picture :)
Bethany @ 101sprinkles.weebly.com
i do NOT drink enough water :( (working on it…)
i DO love crystal light (especially raspberry tea)
and my fave p.j.'s are target gauchos that are the SOFTEST material EVER. heaven. on earth.
love your tangents lady!
I have the problem with getting up a million times at night. So much that the cat learned when she hears me get up it is time to jump in bed and steal my spot. I crawl back in and have no where to lay down! I also teach and literally run to the potty after each lesson!
Tangent about me….I wear holiday (christmas/halloween) pj's, socks and undies year round!!
[email protected] Be Fit
I drink water ALL THE TIME and have such a tiny bladder! Frequent bathroom trips haha :)
why did i not know you get free crystal light??? seriously. i live off that stuff. I have to buy it from sam's like 3 times a month. haha.
today's tangent is that I am slowly becoming obsessed with taking pics of myself for my blog. except i am running out of dumb faces to make. haha.
maybe I should do that 5k. i will see. i need to run like 20 miles that day. guess 3.1 is a good start. ha.
Love those rainboots! My favorite PJs are a pair of sweatpants I've had since 7th grade and old race t-shirts!
I drink a ton of water too! It's embarrassing how many times I have to go to the bathroom during work!
Ohmygoodnessineedthoseboots! Also, I desperately want a pair of footie pjs in my size. BIlly's family is officially the coolest.
I don't drink enough water. Any advice on making sure you drink enough? I can't have a water bottle at my desk because it is in a biosafety level 2 lab, meaning no food, beverages or cosmetics.
I drink lots of water too!! It makes me feel good though!
I fill up my big nalgene bottle 3-4 times a day sooo I pretty much drink my body weight in water… This might be why my roomy and I go thru TP so fast hmmm
Hey Girlie, Sorry I havent commented in awhile! So, I know I should drink more but I'm lazy about that kinda thing! Now, my work mate drinks TONS! About 8 tall glasses a day. I marvel at her discipline!
Hope you're getting better!!
I love drinking water, and drink glasses of it throughout the day which means I spend most of my day in the bathroom!
I LOVE Crystal Light, half the reason I have a hard time just drinking plain water. I drink a ton of flavored water. Just the other day my Mom and I were driving and she looked down and discovered three empty propel water bottles, she replied "What is wrong with you!" lol….
Those rainboots are adorable! My water bottle is with me at all times, so I have to go to the bathroom a couple times each hour. When my water bottle's full, I just keep drinking it and have no restraint! I even plan my runs near places that have water fountains.
I was JUST sitting here thinking about how I've had about 75 cups of water today, and I'm irritated about how my mouth is already dry since I haven't had a sip in like a minute and a half. I swear, some days it's like I can't get enough to drink no matter what. I've been tested for diabetes.. blood sugar is normal. Who knows..
I tend to just sleep in boy shorts and tank tops, but for winter there is nothing like a pair of big, slouchy sweatpants. Preferably a boyfriend's pair :)
I drink a ton of water and am constantly going to the bathroom, but everyone just kind of accepts it now. I really like crystal light as well, it is a nice change from plain water.
On the PJ front I love some comfy shorts, and a race t-shirt.
Does Diet DP count because I am in the bathroom often. I like Crystal Light but don't drink it often enough.
I have a pair of sweats from Banana Republic and I live in them. I also bought the most hideous pair of sweat shorts (complete with pockets) from Sam's Club. Try not to be jealous of my amazing fashion sense.
Tangent: I should be studying for a lab practical tomorrow but I'm taking a blog stalking break.
I am so ready for my kids to be out of school that I have planned "field trips" for them.
I think I seriously might be part crystal light. Seriously.
those are quite the pajamas! wowsa!
Liv @ The Salty n' Sweet
I used to drink an obscene amount of water every day, but since switching from bottled water and carrying a bottle around, not so much. Working on that!
Not a big Crystal Light fan, but I wholly support your hot chocolate drinking in the summer :)
Jayme @ Runner and Spice
OMG. The water – I'm the exact same way. At work, I fill up four water bottles in the morning. It gets me to about lunch. The same goes for the afternoon. I think I've trained myself to HAVE to drink that amount of water though….my mouth feels parched if I don't !! argh.
The bathroom during the night thing is totally the norm for me to. Ugh.
Dude Fruit Punch Crystal Light is like crack… reminds me of the terrible tropical punch kool-aid I used to down as a kid by the gallon.
Holley @ Lunges and Lashes
I think I make about 50 trips to the bathroom everyday. I am just thirsty I can't help it! I WISH I had someone to fill up my water bottle for me though… that would make my life a lot easier. :)
I tried to get Ben to buy me some footsie pjs for christmas… kinda joking… but mostly serious. They are genius. Plus, my feet are ALWAYS cold. I think it is the perfect solution.
do you think billy's brother could make me a pair of boots? ill take pink ones with the same setup! ;)
I DO want those pjs. Maybe I'll suggest them to my mom for next year's christmas pajamas.
I drink tons of water and tea all day. i usually have to get up at least once a night to pee…overshare?
Tangent about me: I'm super psyched to have Bungee because now I can talk to myself and people just think I'm talking to the dog….though that might not be much better. hmm
i usually go through a 32 oz. bottle of water during the school day (i'm a teacher too) then another 3-4 glasses at home. i can't make it through the school day if i don't have my water bottle!
also, random tangent: tonight at dinner, all our spoons were in the sink and i was too lazy to wash one, so i used a slice of bread instead to scoop up my pasta…i thought it was a good idea! :)
I love love love crystal light! It's what I live on all day long! My favorite is mixing the raspberry with lemonade! So yummy! Favorite pj's are my jcrew pajama pants with any cozy sweatshirt I can find! I love your fun blog!!
My tangent of Today is that I thought of you randomly (don't freak out)….i was doing something menial and I recalled you making fun of your "running blog" since you haven't been running lately and I thought that I would want you to know that I do not run, I don't really like candy all that much, I am not married or a teacher…
I love your blog.
I would read your blog if it was about underwater basket weaving, nose picking neices (oh wait…um…) or navel gazing while watching golf.
It's all YOU and your spirit. We love you. I speak for many and I know they all agree.
While I am commenting (I rarely do) I would like to express my undying love for your gray hoodie you wear. If you ever tire of it maybe we an exchange. I have a grand selection.
But that would be a pipe dream. People don't "give up" hoodies.
That's all. B-love ya!
Sometimes I worry people watch how often I have to go to the bathroom because I drink so much water. They probably think I live in there!
I asked W if he would wear boots like that if i made them and he said no :( i think theyre amazing!!!!!
I never drink water BECAUSE i dont wanna have to spend my day on the potty!!!! Ive seriously considered calling the catheter infomercial number!!!
I like drinking lots of water but it seriously causes some issues!
I am laughing my head off right now!!! I love the rain boots and the pj's :D soooo freaking funny! I like the fact that your students think you are strange for taking pictures of yourself with Crystal Light!! So to answer your question, I drink A TON of water a day. I am worse than a child, no matter where we go I MUST use the bathroom. My husband makes fun of me all of the time. Thanks for making me laugh!! Steph :)
Happy teacher appreciation day btw!!
6 more weeks of no running? :( Love crystal light… raspberry ice and fruit punch make me happy. Also, they make me run to the restroom because I'll have downed 3 glasses of water in 5 minutes.
Evolving Through Running
Holy cow …. free Crystal Light Energy Wild Strawberry …. I am scared of how I would end up if that were true for me. I don't drink coffee, and discovered the Crystal Light 'Energy' singles a couple years ago. I now go through them like a 6-year-old hyperactive kid with Pixie Stix. If they were free I can only imagine sitting in front of a Scarface-sized pile of Crystal Light dust snorting the stuff Sheen-style. "Say hallo to my leetle friend!"
1. My school did a pi day 5K since the number pi is 3.14 and we ran it on March 14th …….you should suggest this idea for next year!!
2. My favorite pj's are flannels from victorias secret. I wear flannels all but about the month of July because I love being cozy while I sleep. I know, not very sexy for the hubby.
3. Crystal light……love it, and you just reminded me to buy some, I haven't had it in years.
4. I have been craving red meat so had a burger for lunch 2 days in a row…….that a new one for me. Our bodies are fun!
Race t-shirts and yoga pants make the BEST pajamas! I wish I could wear that to work.
Those rainboots and are hilarious!!
Love water…I drink it and nothing else (usually). Yes, I do pee a lot!! That's the only downer about drinking water. I've been tested for diabetes because of it but no, just like to keep my pipes running smoothly. :) Love the footsie jams, my goof ball sister bought me some too, I actually wore them a few times during the cold Utah winters.
Here is my tangent. over the weekend I ran a 3:08 marathon, which means I am now beginning operation: become Janae, which involves next running a 3:04 marathon, and then becoming discovered by a coach, and then getting my boyfriend to buy me a treadmill, and then aiming for sub 3:00 ;)
Those pajamas are epic.
My favorite PJs are any comfy shorts or pants (depending on the time of year), and a tee shirt I randomly steal from my hubby. lol
I drink a ton too and have a bladder the size of a pea. My favorite pair of pjs are really old ones from Victoria's secret that I bought in high school. They are granny style, long sleeves and long pants but they are so comfy!
Christina @ The Athletarian
That picture is so ridiculous. I absolutely cannot contain myself! You guys have the best families!
And yes, I love water and drink lots of it. Sometimes when I'm at work I'll forget if I'm really busy and then I get dehydration headaches that sometimes last 24 hours :( So I try to carry a water bottle around all day so I don't forget!
Hurray for the pain free potty run!! Woohoo for progress!!
I drink more than I ever have now that I am using a reusable straw cup instead of my plain water bottle. I don't what it is about drinking thru a straw but it makes it more fun :)
PJs for me are a some old navy bottoms made of tshirt material- I love softness! The embarassing thing is that if you stop by my house unannounced after 6, chances are I am wearing them already.
I don't drink enough water and I don't drink Crystal Light…but I LOVE that silly pic of you with the Crystal Light and love it even more that you were busted taking it…and you don't care :) Ha! I love your weirdness :) My p.j.s are all old and threadbare, but my kids have some awesome jammies.
Tangents… I am making bread right now! I made two new friends today :)
Oh Janae, I have the world's SMALLEST bladder. It's really ridiculous. And I drink a huge amount of water, but I probably go to the bathroom 15 times a day.
i drink TONS of water during the day and usually am constantly going to the bathroom! lol… my fiance does the same and jokes that we probably have water diabetes lol… interesting…
Someone else said they have the smallest bladder..but they I wrong because I seriously do! lol Its a real problem on race day. I do drink tons and tons of water so I guess that could partly be the culprit. :)
My fav winter pjs are fleecy pants with polar bears :) My fav summer are just a small pair of shorts and a tank….oh I can't wait for sumer!
Have a great day Janae!
Cyndi @ Weightless Life
I love the pink lemonade crystal light. As far as pj's go I have these gray fleece pants with silver hearts on them that I love.
Let's see a tangent about me. Hmmm…how about I collect pens. I have hundreds of them and I think it's driving my husband crazy.
I have been told that I have a Pea size bladder. It was a joke at my old job. Cant help it and I am a thirsty girl too!
I love PJs. I would wear them to work if I could. Fav pair is florescent green with flip flops all over it….summer is coming!
Erin @ UntilYouTri
Haha, I also drink a ton and for some reason I am okay in the morning but it all catches up on me in the afternoon at work and I think my coworkers think I'm crazy because then I have to pee every 15 minutes.
Me: "Be right back, gotta go to the bathroom."
Coworker: "Didn't you just go 5 minutes ago?"
Me: "NO! You must confused. Crazy person!"
Those PJs are AWESOME! I want glow-in-the-dark Polar bear PJs!!
Neon Blonde Runner
That's fab that your school is doing a 5K as a fundraiser!
I'd totally do it if I didn't live in Virginia.
Love the PJs…no wonder you married Billy, you two (and his family) are a perfect match!
I also LOVE water, I bring a liter Nalgene to work every day with me and go through it probably at least twice during a 12 hour shift.
I'm dying laughing at that picture of your brother in law- LOVE his rain boots. Haha! Too cute ;)
haha that pic of your BIL is HILARIOUS! Everyone has to embrace their inner child once in a while! ;-)
I do not drink nearly enough water! Give me some of your skillllls. I am a huge fan of Crystal Light additives though, they make drinking water more fun :)
I wish I could do that 5K..it's sooo far away from Wisconsin though.
AMAZING boots! :)
I try to drink A LOT of water throughout the day and I feel like I pee every half hour! I loooove Crystal Light…so jealous you get it for free!
My favorite PJ's have got to be green and white polka dot shorts with one of my boyfriends racing shirts…I've stolen many of his shirts haha.
So I just have to say, you are adorable and hilarious, and I am LOVING your blog! I just found it and have only read the last few posts but I am totally hooked and feel like I need to take a day to just go back to the beginning and read the whole thing. Seriously, you should probably just make it into a book. I would buy it and bring it to the beach on my next vacation! It's the perfect mix of humor and running inspiration. : )
p.s. Your hubby's jammies are amazing! Gotta get some for my hubs!
