Seven! Seven! Seven!!!!!

A couple of my favorite bloggers – Chelsey and Heather – have a fun little Friday tradition. Fun Facts Friday! It gives a little glimpse into their lives and I always look forward to reading them. Then, Lindsay tagged me with a Blissful Blogger award which calls for sharing 7 fun facts.


I guess it was just meant to be that I play along with Fun Facts Friday. Winking smile

The number seven always makes me think of the scene from FRIENDS where Monica and Rachel teach Chandler about erogenous zones. Seven. Seven. Seven! Seven!!! SEVEN!!! Ha. Loves it!

You should never joke about having a black eye. Karma will get ya. On Wednesday, I somehow opened my car door right into my face and busted my lip.


Thankfully, it looks only slightly bruised now. And you’re welcome for sparing you the bloody, scabbed picture.

I still love the grilled sandwich combo of pepperjack cheese, tomato, and hummus.


It looks so delicious, but it never fails that I burn the bottom half.


Who can’t cook a grilled cheese sandwich? Apparently this girl.

I want to find these pumpkin bagels.

I can’t get them out of my head! I have searched high and low – Publix or Kroger, bread section or refrigerated section. They must live in some bagel vortex. It makes me sad. Do you know where I can get some?

I watched my first episode of Modern Family three weeks ago.


I love it. I want to find these illusive pumpkin bagels and sit on the couch and watch the entire first season straight through. That show is downright funny!

These came in the mail for me yesterday.

I’m all  kinds of excited. Peter told me he subscribed for me when he found a TWO DOLLAR subscription. How does he always find these crazy good deals?! Oh, yea. The Slickdeals website.

I’m working with Love Grown as a Love Blogger!


Have been for awhile…yet it somehow keeps slipping my mind to a) tell you and b) figure out how to get that picture into a widget on my sidebar. Ohhh, Peterrrrr!!!

  • What’s something that should be ridiculously easy to do, but you can never seem to get just right?
  • What’s a newly discovered love for you? Mine = Modern Family and Runner’s World. And front loaders.

I Want To Play! {Fun Fitness Survey}

A few days ago, I came across a fun post from my good pal Lindsey over at the blog Cardio Pizza.

Her post went through a bunch of light-hearted questions related to her personal fitness preferences and goals. I immediately thought “I want to play!”.

Since Friday means fun and light-hearted around here, why not break it out today? I can’t wait to hear some of your answers in the comments! Or read them on your own blog. Open-mouthed smile


Five Fitness Things I Can’t Live Without:

  • running shoes
  • Bosu or stability ball – love the extra challenge from them!
  • someone to watch the kids – yes it’s a fitness thing because it often makes the difference between a workout or not
  • Cathe or Turbo Jam/Kick/Fire DVDs – I need the extra variety
  • dumbbells – most versatile piece of strength equipment

Favorite Pre-Workout Snack or Meal:

I usually have to grab something as I’m rushing to get the kids ready in the morning. This means I need something quick, easy to eat one-handed, and that digests quickly so I don’t feel sick while working out. My favorite options are:

  • a larabar
  • a banana
  • a few handfuls of cereal/granola (Love Grown!!!)

Then, I always eat a big ole breakfast post workout. Oats for the win!

On My Fitness Bucket List:

Hmmm…you know. I don’t really have anything on a bucket list. I guess my biggest thing is to continue having fun with fitness and working on challenging myself in fun, new ways. That changes all the time, so I can’t definitively say what I would put on my fitness bucket list.

Must-Have Tech Tools:

  • Garmin – mainly so I don’t have to pre-plan my running path!!
  • iPhone – for music

Top Exercise Gear:

I love working out in a good sports bra, a tee (preferably wicking material), and either running shorts or capris. I’m still fully in love with all my Champion gear.

Motivational Mantra:

“The finish is worth it” is probably the biggest mantra I use. However, nothing gets me going like my crazy Hammer flash-mob mental game.

Next Big Exercise Goal:

Crossing the finish line of my first half-marathon. Rest assured – I will cry.

Favorite Cardio Exercise:

I never thought this day would come, but running has truly become my favorite form of cardio. I love that I can either push myself for a workout that makes me feel amazed at what my body can handle or simply keep it low and have it recharge me mentally and physically. It’s so versatile and I love that! Cycle classes will always be up there too as a close second.

Favorite Strength Move:

I would have to say the push-up. They never get easier!!! And they work.

  • What’s your next fitness goal?
  • What are some of your fitness must-haves?
