Today is Day 32 of my Whole30 challenge.  Yep, I did it! I lasted the whole thirty days, and then some. Over the past month I have had many non-scale victories; clearer skin, thicker hair, better sleep, more energy, zero bloating, and a very even mood –which is huge for me, just ask my husband.

i want to have running bling like flavor flav

I just found out I was selected to support and promote the Mississippi Blues Marathon as part of the #BlueCrew. Whoo-hoo I’m so excited! I wanted to support and promote the 2016 Mississippi Blues Marathon because: I’m planning to run it with my friend Stephanie; we heard (repeatedly) while we were running another half marathon (weird,

whoa…i think i was just fat shamed

I made a quick stop at my neighborhood Walmart on the way to the beach today. I purchased SPF 50 lip balm, and a package of dog bones for the two-year old dog my son drove across three states, and then asked me to babysit, for eight months. As I was standing in the checkout

things i learned (the hard way) in ohio

Hubs and I ran the USAF Marathon last Saturday. We built a vacation around our destination-marathon, and lingered in Dayton for a week to spend precious time with a dear friend. It was marvelous. The trip-part was marvelous that is…the marathon…well. I didn’t know in advance, the course was a Boston and Olympic Qualifier, nor

sea monkey challenge

Along with stepping up my miles for the fourth (or fifth?) half marathon I’m running in seven weeks, I’m doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge this month. I’m planking a minute-a-day for eleven days until the challenge calendar exceeds my ability, and I’m doing my planks on my hands; because I can. As with any

ready, set, here i run

I’m going to Chicago next week. I thought I had been to Chicago before, and I have been there, just not since I could talk. Or walk. Or since Al Gore invented the internet. My Chicago visit was very-pre-9/11. So pre-9/11, I don’t think it really counts as a visit. I don’t know why I

boobs are the first sign

Soooo what happens to you when your favorite sibling and their partner dump you because they are immature, selfish fatheads? Well, let me just tell you. So you know… First you spend the weekend at the beach with great friends drinking mojitos and you try to pretend you are in your happy place. Or Key

keeping up with myself

I love fitness gadgets. Anything that measures my activity and prompts me to compete against myself makes me want it. Bad. Competitive much? I need the t-shirt. I must have blown through fifteen pedometers and Weight Watchers calculators back in the pre-smart phone day. When smart phones came along I used calorie counting and mileage

yes, I peed in the car

I never thought in a million years I would hit the ground running with my new business. I’m so very thankful. Unfortunately my personal business success means a lot of ten-hour days, and sometimes six days a week. Plus I have a a kid graduating from the nest -er, just high school. So my little

ive been busy running half marathons, building legos, peeing in cars and stuff

Well, it’s been a week or so since I last blogged, and a lot has happened… I quit my new job because it was sheer chaos; I started my own business; we traveled to Nashville and ran the Rock ‘n Roll Country Music Marathon and Half; I built the coolest Lego truck, and I unsuccessfully
