Hashtag It

Whew! This week has felt like one huge roller coaster. It started off with my post half-marathon runner’s high and then had a lot of thinking and reflecting going on, plus a bit of stress. Nothing too much to worry about or bore you with, but let’s just say I’m ready for the weekend. I bet you are too. So let’s have some fun with Fun Fact Friday to get the ball rolling already, huh? I thought you would agree!

This week = Twitter hashtag edition. An idea I stole from the lovely Chelsey. Fitting since I got Fun Fact Friday from her as well. We’re kind of incestual with our ideas.

It’s 11/11/11, which means Braedon is now ten months old. What happened to this little bundle?

I refuse to accept that he will be a year old in two months. I also refuse to accept he will be walking soon. #herecomestrouble

A teenage girl store clerk told me that it would have been “SO cool” if I stayed pregnant “a little longer” to have had B on 11/11/11 instead of 1/11/11. She clearly needs another visit to Health class. #kidsthesedays

I cannot wait for my next half marathon. The Zooma Atlanta Half in two weeks! In fact, I wish I could run a fun race every other weekend. #soaddicted

Not only for the fact I love the experience, but wearing race t-shirts makes me feel like a cool kid. I’ve been wearing my race shirts all week. #irunfortheshirt

On a completely different note, I take my personal training certification exam tomorrow. Which means I have been studying my butt off this week.

Even though I know that I know the material, I still get more than slightly nervous when in a testing environment. #thankgodformultiplechoice #wishmeluck

I sent Peter grocery shopping for me earlier this week. Normally, that decision doesn’t end too well. This time, it did. He brought these home for me.

Gingerbread pita chips. And they are divine. #musthaveselfcontrol

For some reason, I have gone into total sap mode recently. I am completely sucked into this book…

…and badly want to see this movie.

As it turns out, they are making a movie out of the Nicholas Sparks book too. I will probably end up seeing that one too. #canthelpmyself

I know the winner for the SHAPE and Fiber One fitness package. #drumrollplease

The Day Before

It’s only Friday afternoon and I already have so much fun to share with y’all! I have a feeling this weekend is going to be nothing but excitement, fun, and smiles. So, let’s get to it – Fun Fact Friday: “The Day Before” edition.

I most definitely brought my nearly empty jar of White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter with me to create Starbucks oats in a jar for breakfast.

And the Skinny Peppermint Mocha is, in fact, fabulous.

Caffeine doesn’t have any power over my ability to pass out in the car.

And I have no shame in using the “I’m running a half marathon and need my rest” excuse with Peter.

I’m still afraid I forgot to pack something for my race.

If I didn’t have to wake-up super early tomorrow morning, I so would have signed up for one of the late night walking ghost tours through Savannah.

I love creepy ghost stories.

I once met Paula Dean.

But I didn’t even know who she was because I was young at the time.

Don’t forget. Daylight savings is this weekend.

The thought of gaining an extra hour of sleep after running 13.1 miles and getting to actually enjoy the sleep because children won’t rob it from me = priceless.

Although, it also means an extra hour of missing these two.

Yes, I miss them already.

I think I have a pretty rocking playlist.

Almost all of those songs are new downloads.

I often get Amazon gift cards. I use them all for two things – diapers and music.  #winning

Speaking of diapers and music, I’m still annoyed that Braedon refused to do his little dance to the Party Rock Anthem every time I pulled out the camera yesterday. How do they know?!

Last fact? I’m ready. Ohhhh am I ready!!! I will make sure to update from Facebook and Twitter shortly after with results and then you’ll get a full recap here soon enough. Wish me luck!!

  • Would you do a ghost tour?
  • What would you use an Amazon gift card for?

Where The Change Happens

Posted: November 16, 2011 at 7:54 am

It’s kind of funny. I become a certified personal trainer and the first workouts I turn to this week come from someone else. The book came in for me at the library last week and, after flipping through it, I couldn’t wait to give the circuits a go. Making The Cut includes a lot of [...]
