I have fifteen things that I simply must share with you since I feel the need to tell you all of the random details of my life each day.
1- We had a fingernail painting party yesterday afternoon. Brooke is more patient about letting her nails dry than I am hence why her nails ended up looking way better than mine.
2- She somehow found a stash of candy in the cabinets that I had forgotten about. She calls Swedish Fish—> Sweden Fish and it just makes me happy.
3- We are in that stage of never knowing if a nap is going to happen and more often than not we are skipping naps and falling asleep in my arms at 7 pm.
4- I put Brooke down for bed at my parents’ house and got to go on a date to Zupas for a mango salad and bbq pork sandwich.
5- We then watched some good ol’ House. I have watched every season of this show twice already but it never gets old to me.
6- I added another race to the list. I can’t stop. I am stoked to run this one because I have heard amazing things about it! It is the Timpanogos Half Marathon and it is on 8/1/2015!!! It is just $60 to sign up and you can use the code HRG15 to get 15% off any Runtastic Event (including the Timp 1/2) Sign up and do it with me:) It is definitely a PR course!
7- Laura sent these beautiful prints for me and the Brookers and I am obsessed. You can check out her Etsy shop HERE!
8- Don’t mind my ‘I just rolled out of bed and I am trying really hard to flex my arm’ look and let’s just talk about the shirt. If you overheat/sweat like crazy/need tanks for summer running—> try out the Versatile Lite Tank. It is ridiculously lightweight and super breezy. Our gym has been extra hot lately and the tank helped me from overheating during spin and running on the treadmill yesterday morning. You forget you are even wearing it because it is so light and comfy. I’m also a big fan of tanks that aren’t crazy tight but still somewhat fitted. I think I need the blue one too.
9- The week after the marathon= I ate every donut/ice cream cone/piece of candy that came within 50 feet of me and for the last twoish weeks I have been trying to get my sugar intake back under control a bit. Instead of my nightly 100 grams of sugar, I have been trying out a bunch of different snacks to help me ease off my sugar addiction. Snacks including—> cottage cheese with grapes, popcorn, dried fruit (with no extra added sugar), almond butter (that has been happening every night), cereal, toast, chips and salsa, fruit, a yogurt parfait (with berries and granola), greek yogurt pretzels and the list goes on… These Granny Smith Apples were last night’s midnight snack. When I don’t eat dessert every single day it makes it taste even better when I do have it.
10- SUPER good article about overtraining—> Here.
11- A few posts back I had some readers recommend using Coconut Oil as a lip moisturizer. I tried it out and wow. Amazing. You guys are brilliant.
12- During the last 5k of the marathon I am usually telling myself that THIS MARATHON will be my last marathon. My body just feels wrecked, exhausted and like it never ever wants to experience those feelings again… and then I go ahead and sign up for another one right away. Strange.
This article may help to explain why we forget the pain:)
13- You know you should probably just go to bed when you find yourself looking up National Food Holidays on Wikipedia at 1 a.m.
WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO CELEBRATE CATFISH?!?
14- I burned my forehead for the 5,000th time with my instyler last night. It doesn’t look bad (okay, you can’t even really see it) but man, it hurt. Someday I will learn to avoid this situation.
15- We are pretty excited to hang out with these Cool Cats tonight. ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
A show or two that you could watch over and over again and never get sick of!?
Favorite food holiday to celebrate?
Favorite type of dried fruit?
Anyone ever felt overtrained? What were your symptoms?
Any fun Friday night plans?
