One more thing I've learned in blogland

I went for my run this morning on the trail. Normally I run the trail right before dark. I didn't account for the grass being dewey in the morning :) so by the first quarter of a mile, my feet were soaked! I'm not a fan of squishy toes, but I kept telling myself it was like running in the rain! AND there is a brightside... only my feet were wet! Long story short, I had a great run, despite the squishy toes!

When I got I to my car (yes I drive to the trail. Don't judge me ;) my feet looked like this:

My poor shoes were soaked! However I had read on someone's blog about stuffing my shoes with newspaper and letting them air dry. My shoes are full of paper and sitting on my front deck. Thanks to blogland, I won't have wet, stinky shoes next run!!

Time to Eat CLEAN!! and Randomness

I have been working out faithfully and now I need to work on my eating.  I eat fairly healthy most of the time.  I am going to try to eat totally clean (except for one cheat meal a week) for at least two weeks.  I figure two weeks is long enough to see results and to prove to myself that I can do it!  As you can see from the photo above, my fridge is well stocked with fruits and vegetables! Lean meats, low fat dairy, and whole wheat pasta and breads complete the picture!

Last week, I made the two tag blankets above for a friend at work who is having twins!! They were fun to make and she loved them :)

Ahhhh.... This last picture is of a pier at my favorite fishing spot!  It instantly relaxes me.  I keep it on my desk at work :)  (I should note that I don't generally fish. I leave that to Mike.  I work on relaxing :)
I hope you are all having a great weekend!!

Katie and Kenzie on a run :)

Sami and I after a tough weight lifting session :)
My daughters have decided to really embrace fitness this summer!  We're all running and Sami and I have added free weight work as well.  We are all loving it and loving life!!
I am so incredibly proud of my daughters!

And so I ran!

I ran today.  I can not remember the last time I ran. Seriously sad. I needed it.  I needed to know I still can. I plan to get crazy fit this summer. I'm talking craaazy!  I want to be proud of my body.  It starts now.  I am committed to eating clean and working hard.  That is what it is all about.  I know this. I know if I do the work, it will happen!  Today is the Tomorrow I talked about Yesterday.  I saw that somewhere and it hit home with me.  How many tomorrows (todays) will I waste?  NOT ONE MORE!

Bring it on!
