Today in History: “2003 In America, Pop star Michael Jackson hands himself into police following the issue of a warrant for his arrest in connection with charges of child molestation.” not a very fun fact but it’s in History.

Well since being gone, I have not eaten very well, and have not exercised I need to detoxify! So today that’s what I am doing, lot’s of fruits and veggies and water.

I wanted to run this morning, didn’t happen body needed rest. But I did get to sit and eat cranberry oats while hubby and Bosco read the paper together:)

Plan for the next two days until VACATION:

-eat lots of REAL food
-kick box
-plan out vacation


I wanted to give those of you in who are participating in the PILE ON THE MILES CHALLENGE, a sneak peak about some things that are going to be in the winners goodie baggy (a little incentive to keep running hard). I have a couple sponsors that are sending me some very cool things to throw in the GB (goodie bag). Here is the first peak, a Gas Cap….

I wore this amazing hat, in the ST. George Marathon. I felt a little goofy at first, but quickly got over that. I loved the way you could stick your gels in the hat and grab them conveniently.

Patented designed, with special inserts that snugly & comfortably hold gel packets.

· Reduce the weight & bounce of a fuel belt
· Keep your gels close & convenient
· Stay fueled up & light on your feet

It was so convenient and comfy!!!! I am so excited to give one of these to a the winner.


Surprisingly hubby updated me on our total grocery bill for this month so far and it was only $100! We are almost to Thanksgiving and are going to make our budget! I can’t wait to send a gift card to my brother in the mail this week.


I only have 48 hours until I leave for Nashville for thanksgiving with the In-laws. Hubby is leaving on Saturday because he had a FREE ticket and was limited on the days he could fly out, and because I have work I couldn’t’t leave. So I will be home Friday night alone again, which means cleaning and packing! Then Saturday morning I will be flying solo, which will be good because I can catch up on reading and finish my scarf (I am almost done with it).

I am excited about heading out to Memphis for Thanksgiving, we are only there are a week so we have to plan accordingly. We want to hit up all the best eateries we miss, friends, and family. I am hoping to see college roomies, and get in a lot of running since I only have 19 miles logged since the 8th!!!!! Man I am slacking, but with vacation that means more time, and I am one of those crazy ones that love to work out on vacation, do any of you readers do that too???

Well I am off to work on this Thursday morning hoping to eat healthy, go to kickboxing tonight, and then couples study. I hope not to be stressed these next two days as I am packing and planning for Holidays. How do you deal with stress of the Holiday? DO you have any? I tend to just write as much as I can down so that I don’t have to worry about it, haven’t done ANY of that yet! There is still the shopping list, Christmas cards to make, send out, and have that annual Christmas party to PLAN! I WILL NOT get stressed, I WILL NOT get stressed, I WILL NOT get stressed!!!! (Must put a massage on that list)

P.S. When I got home from AZ I received all of these wonderful samples from ProBar, and Snacktration!!!! Can’t wait to try them:)
