No Rhyme Or Reason

Posted: August 15, 2011 at 7:00 am

Sometimes life seems to have no rhyme or reason. Like the fact that it is Monday again already. Or that I leave for Healthy Living Summit in three days. Or that I have already cried today and I still have T minus 2 hours before dropping Makenzie off for her first day of preschool. No rhyme. No reason. Just like the post I’m about to throw at your eyeballs. 

Ice Baths Are Torture

IMGP0472 IMGP0473 IMGP0474 IMGP0475

I have succumbed to the torture technique known as the ice bath to help my legs heal after my long runs. It works. I haven’t felt sore at all, despite mileage increases, since taking the frigid 15-20 minute dips over the past few weeks.

I Like Free Stuff

I received a coupon for a free recovery shake from my gym. Free is good. I cashed in on the drink yesterday afternoon after my 3 mile treadmill run and 15 minutes on the stepmill. I picked up a blend of strawberry, pineapple, and coconut. Verdict?


Yowza that is too sweet for a smoothie! You all know I like sweet (reference below), but this was over the top for a smoothie. But free is good, so you better believe I still drank it.

You Will Hate Me For What I’m About To Do To You

I made these this weekend. And you have to wait until Wednesday for the recipe. No amount of begging can help your cause. Just like no amount of begging I do will make these “health food” as I so deeply desire.

Surprisingly Good

The movie Just Go With It with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston pleasantly surprised both Peter and I. We had an unexpected open night on Saturday and decided to have a night in together since I go out of town next weekend. We had some pizza (duh), ate too much sugar (you did see above, right? so…duh), chatted, and watched this movie. A predictable movie, but pretty funny too!

Strange & Bizarre at Church


In our Sunday group study this weekend we had some interesting tangent conversations – like wanting to ask God what happened to the dinosaurs and is there any other life out there? Random. I know.  Also random? In fourth grade I had a dream that aliens abducted me. It felt vividly realistic and I still remember it in detail…including waking up and immediately projectile vomiting. It creeps me out even though I don’t believe there are aliens like depicted in films out there.

I told you. No rhyme or reason. But it’s all good, baby. Unlike that smoothie.

  • Do you think there is such a thing as too sweet? What things can be too sweet easily to you?  

  • What random thing do you always wonder about?

  1. Too sweet smoothies are totally a pet peeve of mine, yuck! Another problem? Too sweet coffee drinks- the worst!

  2. oh my gosh – that ice baths look like TORTURE! But I’ve heard they do wonders…so GO YOU 🙂 Also, I can’t believe you already have to put your tiny little nugget in to school. My hearts breaks thinking about mine aging.

  3. I put off watching Just Go With It for a long time because I thought it would be stupid. Finally Hunni and I were out of options for movies and we watched and loved it.
