Humidity=Devil

Humidity is the Devil. Or Debil if you're the Waterboy's momma. :)
I completed Week 3 Day 2 today! It was a lot harder than Day 1. I am blaming it on the humidity. Texas humidity stinks. I feel like I am breathing underwater most days. As soon as you take one step out the door, sweat starts pouring from your body. I wish we could move somewhere where they have all four seasons! That would be fabulous! But until then, lets talk about my run! I started out pretty good with the first 1.5 min. run. My shins were not hurting! Then the 3 min. run came...Could barely take in a breath! But I didn't stop! I kept going, said a few choice words, but kept going none the less. The second 1.5 min. run is when the shins started hurting. Made it through. The last 3 min. run was a little better, because I knew it was the last run of the day. Shins sill hurt, but I still had a mile of walking to go before I stopped. I decided at the last quarter mile that I wanted to push myself and time a quarter mile run. Luckily the track I run on has markers, so I started at one of the 1/4 markers and timed myself to the next one. Exactly 3 minutes! I was so proud of myself! I'm really pumped about my next run! I iced down my shins when I got home. I found these lovely ice packs at Academy for $6. They have served me well.
 
I have tomorrow off from running, but I'm hoping to get in a little swim time to work my arms. And since I will already be breathing in water, I might as well go swim in it! The hubby and I are leaving for Dallas on Saturday morning, and I have to work all day Friday, so tomorrow will be packing/errand day as well. I will be busy busy! I am looking forward to tomorrows breakfast though! Look what I found tonight!


Yes! It's Peanut Butter & Co's Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter! I have been reading all about this on my fellow blogger's website's and cannot wait to try it in the morning! It looks like I will have another food post after all! :)

  1. Good job on the run, the humidity right now is killer. It's normally more dry in OK but this summer has been unusually humid. Running in the rain is nice too but it hasn't rained here in months.

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
