Last week I got to go hang out at ABC 4 Utah to talk a little bit more about the Boston Marathon! For some reason I was crazy nervous for this one and forgot to look at the camera so ya know… but it still was a blast!
While I was there I met a woman that came up with the best idea. Hydr-8 !!!!! She was on the show after me and once I found out about what she came up with I had to have one.
She makes water bottles that keep you on track to drink enough water each day. You fill it up at the beginning of the day and try to drink down to the line by the marked time! Half-way through your day you fill it up again. Once you go through the water bottle twice you have hit your 8 cups of water goal for the day. This has already helped me to drink more water. I’ve turned it into a personal competition to make it through the water bottle by each time marked:)
You can order them HERE!
This morning I started off with 15 minutes of yoga (I’m going to bootcamp tonight so keeping things light in the morning). Yoga or a little bit of stretching each morning is my new goal. I usually wake up and go straight to my computer to check emails as soon as I wake up but I’m stoked to start things off with some stretching/thinking before the Brookers wakes up.
Also, setting the goal to keep fresh veggies on hand so I snack on them more and don’t go out to eat quite so much:)
The salad I am loving—> turkey burger, grilled zucchini and red pepper, cucumbers, almost an entire avocado and Trader Joe’s Thai Peanut dressing.
There was a random saucer in one of the aisles at Target and Brooke decided she was going to sit in it while I pushed her around. She’s a smart little one and she thoroughly enjoyed her ride around Target like this.
Also, we’ve been taking our Lego building quite seriously lately.

PS here are my splits from the race. Maybe I need to write a post about how to Positive Split your marathon like a boss.
Do you usually get in enough water each day?
What veggies do you eat the most of? What’s veggies are always stocked in your refrigerator?
Do you usually positive split (2nd half slower than the 1st half), negative split (2nd half faster than the 1st half) or have pretty even splits when you race?
On a scale from 1-10 how is your day going?
