Ramblings...

I feel like a follow up from my depressing little post a couple of weeks ago, is in order.
is not something I had...

I still feel like I'm failing on a lot of my goals, but I have learned that they are called goals for a reason.
I have them there to aim for something. If it doesn't happen, well, at least my daughter is alive and happy at the end of the day. And I have gotten to spend a few precious minutes with my husband at the end of his long work day. As much as I would like to be, I am not Super Mom. I can't do everything and unfortunately, I do not have the energy to do everything I want to do.

If I had my way right now, I would be working out twice a day. I feel like after my morning run is over, I have so much energy built up and I want to go to the gym and do more! But I don't belong to  gym. So, I get lazy instead. And then my mind starts going...Man I wish I had some cookies right now. Oh how I wish Sonic would deliver Sweet Tea's! Ha! I could sure go for anything to eat that I don't have to cook!....Yes that is how my mind works these days. My old habits are coming back. I want sweets. I want LOTS of sweet tea. I want to binge eat and then not think about it.

I need to learn time management. I got my daughter on a decent nightly schedule, but instead of taking that extra time to do a workout video or exercise with my Ultimate Sandbag, I am so exhausted that I sit on the couch and space out on my iPad. Or catch up on Biggest Loser. Love that show!

This is bad for me. And I know it is. I am putting this out there so I can be held accountable!
I need to see this out there in the world!

I have been pretty good about keeping up with my running again, but I've hit another plateau in my weight loss and I need to add something extra. Doing exercises with my Ultimate Sandbag once a week isn't really doing much either! And yes I know that my eating habits have definitely helped with stalling my weight loss, but it will continue to be a daily struggle in my life that I must face every. single. day.

See I knew I would be rambling.
And as far as my blogging goes...
I'm hoping to do some giveaways soon!

I think that would really perk up my blog and give you all something good to see and hear about! 

Until then...here's some motivation for the weekend! :)






HaHa I love that one! :)

Have a great weekend! :)

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

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…
