Things I Love - Part 2

Work out today was another 10.17 miles.  I was unbelievably windy, but a good run.  I don't want to speak too soon, but I might be getting the hang of this am really having fun with this!  I think it was about an 8:30+ mile pace.  I'll take it.

Quote of the day from Drew Man:  "Hey, old Lucky Charms taste like chicken!"  Gross.  Funny, but gross.  Don't worry, I'm  not serving my kids old cereal...I just never cleaned up the bowl from the table...oh, my house isn't a pit, really...usually...ummm, never mind.

A while back I wrote about a random few things that were my favs at the time.  I've got some more.

1.  As always, #1 are my peeps...
Story time before bed...
2.  Sweet Jordan loves to draw's her latest.  It's called, 'Mommy'.  It's beautiful.
You've just got to really appreciate the beauty in this one.
3.  I just can't say enough about my Camel Back!  It's like I just got it new, although I've had it all along.  Dorky as it may be, it's awesome because I can put my IPod in the zipper pocket and have water, all hands free.  Love It!
Had to make a re-appearance.  
4.  Another thing I can't say enough about is my Shakeolgy!  When I say the stuff is amazing, I'm not even exaggerating one bit.  There are so many benefits, but the one that comes to mind right now is the recovery drink that it is!  10+ miles feels so much better after a Shake!  No headache, no stomach ache, so much less a feeling of fatigue and "how am I going to get through the day without a nap" feeling.  It rocks!!!!!!
Another re-appearance, but I can't say enough about this product!  
5.  The Shop It To Me website.  This is an amazing place where I've gotten way too many bargains to even count.  I'll try though...I'm talking shoes for both kids on at least 35% off, Crocs for my parents at 50% off, Nike running shorts X2 (at least) for me at, the very least 25%off...we're talking any name it, all on sale.  Any time your favorite brand is running a sale, you'll know about it.  Click it and it's yours.  Doesn't get any better than that!
This is not me, and these are not my legs...but...this is a Shop It To Me image!

6.  Here's something I'm loving, but I don't have one yet.  I'd love a Kindle!  That's going to be my next big purchase.  I'm buying one.
7.  Oh, and I've been hearing more about Compression Socks.  I don't have any of those either, but they might be worth the investment.  They are supposed to help with blood flow and recovery from races and long runs.

  1. Just found you on Exposure 99% weekday hop. I'm your newest follower. I am also on a fitness journey- I've been working out for a little over 2 weeks and have only missed 2 days. Have yet to drop any weight though which is REALLY frustrating!

    1. Well keep it up!! The weight will drop, just keep at it for sure! Consistency is the key! Check back in and let me know how you're doing!
      If you need any tips, let me know, I'd be glad to help!!

  2. I also use a recovery shake, its the visalus shake. I can't excersise with out it. I feel so gross if I dont!! Have you ever done a marothone?

    By the way I found you vis Exposure 99% weekday hop!

    1. It's so important to re-fuel! Now that I realize that, I can't believe I went to long with out it!
      I ran a marathon in 2001 in Alaska! It was such an awesome experience, but the training that goes into it is just so much! It was a lot easier to dedicate more time when I was single and footloose and fancy free! :-)

  3. I wish I could do ten miles but I'm trying! Most I've done so far is 7.

    Found you via the Exposure 99% Weekday Hop.

  4. I'm also on a fitness mission for years now. I wish I could have a pair of those compression socks!
    Glad I found you from 'Make My Morning Blog Hop' <3

    1. Keep it up! I'm looking at getting some Compression Socks within the next few days...I'll let you know how it goes!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for reading!
