So I lost my brain (I am guessing from high levels of glucose in the form of sour patch kids) and forgot to tell you the winner of the Nike Sunglasses!
Nicole, you get to replace your cheepos with some nice ones wahoo!! Email me and we will get you those glasses.
Let’s get the three random tangents going.
1. I learned a valuable life lesson. Do not leave your makeup bag in the car overnight. Certain items will freeze, for example…your mascara. Turns out it can and will freeze. I guess this is a good thing because this particular kind (it was the cheapest at the store) burns my eyes a little but I was too cheap to throw it away until it was all gone. Now the wand is stuck in there and it won’t be coming out anytime soon.
2. Billy got me the book ‘Mile Markers’ by Kristin Armstrong for Christmas and I am completely in love with it. This book makes me want to move to Texas and go running with her and her friends everyday. The reasons she lists for why woman run are dead on and I find my head shaking up and down (or my eyes tearing up) when she shares personal experiences about how running has changed her life.
HERE is the link to buy it online!
If anyone has any connections with Kristin will you ask her if we can be friends and run a marathon together someday? Thanks, I appreciate it.
Sometimes I wonder how Billy gets away with having strong muscles and not participating with me in Jillian’s 30 Day Shred (I swear he would like it if he just gave it a chance;) and then I realized something on Sunday:
It is because he does things like hold my niece up so that she can walk on the ceiling (her favorite thing to do) for 30 minutes (don’t worry, he gave her breaks to allow the blood to go back to the rest of her body) while I sit on the couch and check Facebook on my phone.
What are some ways that you incorporate random physical activities/strength training into your day outside of your workout? I want to find some ways to get some strength training in during the day.
-Teaching PE is a huge one for me…it really gets me moving around in the middle of the day! PS I think a lot of moms out there have some killer awesome guns because of how much you carry around kids…you are amazing.
Where do you buy your make-up?
-Pre-marriage and pre-responsibilites: Nordstrom. Now: Walmart.
Do you have a kindle/nook/ipad thingee to read from or do you enjoy real books more?
-I was very skeptical that I wouldn’t like reading from my iPad but I love it because it allows me to read while on my spin bike and it is easy to take around with me.
