Trish vs. Treadmill

Trish 3 Treadmill 0!!

Woot Woot! Yes, that's right, I have successfully completed three runs on my treadmill! I toyed with running outside today. Look how pretty it was ...

It was sunny and 34. Gorgeous really. Well, compared to what is coming... freezing rain, followed by 4-6 inches of snow, followed by freezing temps. And when I say freezing, I mean wind chills in the negative teens. That's cold people!

However, commonsense prevailed and I ran inside. As you can maybe make out on the other side of the tree, the roads are covered with a little snow and some ice - courtesy of yesterday's storm!

So, if you are brave enough and tough enough to run outside in this - more power to you ;)



  1. I would have run outside because it sounds like you are going to be inside for several days. I would go crazy that many days on the treadmill!

  2. Good choice! I would have stayed indoors too...BY THE FIRE :)) LOL. You keep're doing GREAT! {as Tony the Tiger would say}

    May you & your family have a wonderful holiday season!

  3. I was one of the crazy runners outside this morning in the RAIN!! glad you stayed in and Stayed WARM!! :)

  4. Running in treadmill is a good choice.

  5. yeah, winter has definitely come roaring in for me, the snow keeps coming! This is when I love my treadmill : )

  6. Brrr! I also ran inside today. It's chilly! Nice job :)

  7. good job...treadmill not always the easiest choice...for me anyway..I turn to it more then I want to...

  8. YAYYYY for the treadmill and some good runs lately!! :)

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Proof that I occasionally finish what I start...

New throw pillow covers I made a couple of weeks ago! Finished and started the same day :)  (Sorry the pics aren't the greatest.) I love making these.  They are super quick and easy and are an inexpensive way to change your decor.  Yes, I realize that they don't match each other and yes, they are all on the same couch.  We have a sectional and they're spread out. Besides that, I am eclectic and my home reflects that about me! I'm going to try to take pics of my quilt top tomorrow (read: bribe Mike into doing it for me).  It's been sitting folded up in a drawer since last year. :(  I need to quilt it because: A. It's my first quilt and B. I love it and can't wait to use it!! I've been throwing a lot of love out there in the quilt world the last couple of days, because I am flat out with an injured back.  So to all of you whom I've visited or will visit, thank you.  You're keeping me sane!!  Trish
