Read, Run, Repeat

A tale of fitness, books, food, and life in between

Thursday Tidbits —

on October 11, 2012
  • I have a confession to make. I’m becoming a pumpkin addict. I KNOW! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin spice candle,  pumpkin pie smoothie this morning, and look what I bought 2 days ago… What is happening to me?!? 🙂

  • I just asked Pete if we could invent candy corn vodka. (If I can’t have my stupid candy corn oreos, then I’ll drink the damn things!). He google searched it and sent me the results (there were many!)


Guess what I’m doing this weekend?!?!?!

  • Biggest Loser weigh-in is tomorrow. If I have gained weight again, I may jump off a cliff. It’s kinda disgusting how disgusted I get at myself over a stupid number. ok,  not just a stupid number, I critique my body too. And I’m not nice about it.
  • I bought Fiona’s doggy halloween costume. (don’t judge – she’s my kid!) – but I’m keeping it a secret 🙂
  • I took 3 rest days this week – without freaking out! I think my left shin thanks me – although, it still hurts. And when I did workout, I did Yoga ( I LOVE Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown – have you tried it?!) or workouts that focus more on upper body. And I promised myself no plyometrics for awhile (or running — boo).
  • We are having Apple BBQ chicken stuffed potatoes for dinner. I am excited. The chicken is cooking away in the slow cooker and I can’t wait to smell it when I get home!!
  • Is anyone else doing Linday’s #liveleaneatgreen challenge? I am having so much fun with it! I love checking my list everyday and trying to plan the photos that I’m going to take! I have had no problem remembering to take pictures each day! You can follow me on instagram at bvanevera7, by the way!

Day 7 – go without makeup!

  • My office is still freezing. I may wear my snow pants, mittens, and snow boots tomorrow, since the weather is supposed to be pretty crappy!!
  • Stores NEED to stop sending me emails (yes, i know it’ s just going to get worse with christmas coming!) – but I love to shop. and it makes me happy. and right now, i’m all about things that make me feel warm and toasty!! Right now I’m contemplating this purchase:



It’s friday’s eve, friends – so keep on truckin’!! 😀
