Faith Fitness and Laughter

Grape me please.

Morning!   It’s still dark outside and I should still be sleeping on my day off, but something just woke me up.  Even still, I am watching this teen movie called Prom.  It’s actually not that bad, or it’s the sleepy daze that I am in.  🙂


Boy I have felt tired all week.  Lately getting up and hitting the floor at 5:00 hasn’t been all the difficult for me, but his week has been really tough for some reason.

Remember when I started having issues with my Vitamin D??  Well, Friday I took my last supplement that my doctor prescribed.  I am wondering if I need to take one (at a smaller dose) every day??  I have to go back to get my levels checked again to see what I need to do next.


Yesterday, was really a good day.  🙂  When I got to work I ran into some friends that I know and we had the best chat!  It’s funny how life gets so busy and we have this set routine and you really like to stick to it, but it’s also nice to just set down and catch up on some girl talk.  🙂  The two ladies that I ran into are both married, so it’s nice to get their imput on the relationship world.  We ended up giggling like school girls and having such a great time!  I hope that we make plans to do it again real soon!  (April, I know you are reading this!)



Yesterday when I came home, I quickly changed into my running gear and hopped on the treadmill for an easy 2 miles.

Mile One:    9.46

Mile Two:    9.27


Total time:    19.21

Average pace:    9.36


My workout today??  I am going to do some yoga and really stretch it out.  I am also going to do some foam rolling to get my legs ready for Sunday’s long run of 7 miles.  This will be the longest that I have ever ran and I am really excited about it!  One of those nervous excitements!!

I have also been doing 20 push-ups in the morning and 20 push-ups before I go to bed.  I am also holding a plank for 30 seconds…….cause that is all that my arms can handle right now!!  🙂



Oatmeal with pumpkin spice, grapes, and one egg/egg beaters combo.



I am thinking a no make-up and bobby pin day???  🙂   My niece and nephew do have two soccer games each though, so I guess I can at least wash my hair today.  😉




I read this the other day and wanted to share:


Remember that I can fit everything into a pattern for good, including the things you wish were different.  Start with where you are at this point in time and space, accepting that this is where I intend you to be.  You will get through today one step, one moment at a time.  Your main responsibility is to remain attentive to Me, letting Me guide you through the many choices along your pathway.


Romans 8:28  “And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”


I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Soccer stars!

So today was full of eventful stuff.  🙂


Stuff like this:

Go #6!!


And this….



Crazy kids!


After a little soccer it was lunch time!


Holy cow this was good.



After lunch, it was birthday time!  For this girl….

She will be 8 tomorrow!!


There was lots of playing, some cupcakes, and then of course presents!


Looks like my brother had to get in on the action….  🙂    When my brother and I get together, we turn into 10 year olds I swear.  We were laughing so hard that I thought I was going to pee myself.  You know, that laughing where you get a bit weak??  Lol!  It makes me laugh just thinking about it!


I love fall.


I would really like it if it was a liiiittle bit cooler, but I’ll take anything over triple digits.  Even though there was overcast the entire day, it was still the perfect day for soccer games and a birthday party.



20 minute upper body workout.


I’m out…..Have a great night and I will see you guys tomorrow!



A lil eggs and a lil banana

Hi!  You know, I can’t even sleep in on the weekend.  At 5:30 my body just woke up.  For the love of Pete!  It’s not so bad though.  The morning is when I feel most productive and I am able to catch up on some things.  I also like the quiet time.

So today is going to be a busy day!  My niece and nephew have their soccer games and then my niece is having a birthday party at one of the playgrounds nearby.  I can’t tell you how into girly stuff she is right now.  🙂  She is so beautiful!  I know that my SNL and brother will remind her that it is the heart that is the most important.




Man, I can’t tell you how long this week was to me.  And what’s worse, yesterday was just long in itself.  Lol, I told my boss that I didn’t think that I needed to be around people.  She of course just laughed.  🙂   I was totally serious though.  It was not pretty.  We were down one and it was really busy with hard stuff.  Let’s just say that it wasn’t one of those “I just need to make a deposit” kind of day.  It was more of a “something isn’t right on my account” kind of days.

I didn’t sleep the night before, so I had to wait until I got home to run.  I walked right into the house, changed into my gear, and walked right back out the door.  3.35 done.  So it’s the last week of the September Miles Madness and I was able to increase my mileage every week!  I turned in 16.01!!  The first week I turned in 8.   Thanks Cait!!!


Still have some exciting news to share with you, but it doesn’t start until Monday.  I am however, going to share it with you Sunday night.  Pretty stoked about it!



Finally picked up some spinach!!!



It’s nice and fall-ish outside today!   Maybe a bit humid, but much better than yesterday.  It was near 90!!




What are your plans for the weekend??


Whatever you do today, I hope you have a great one!!



That’s Me Without You.

Morning!  I am so unbelievably excited that it’s Friday.  It’s been a long (and somewhat draggy) week.  Yesterday seemed to just drag on forever to me.  I even had a customer come in right before we closed with a pretty complicated issue.  I ended up being at work until nearly 7:00.  I also still had to check on my friends animals when I got home, so it was almost 7:30 before I walked in the door.  Ugh.  Long day.

I was also pretty weepy last night too.  Can I just say (sorry guys) hormones are the worst.  I watched Grey’s last night and completely wept like a baby.  Don’t worry, for those of you who haven’t watched it yet.  I am not going to spoil it for you.  🙂

I am off this Saturday and this is something that I am also pretty excited about.  I am finally going to get to see one of my niece and nephews soccer games!




I have a run scheduled for today and was going to do it before work this morning, but since I didn’t sleep all that great I am going to move it to this afternoon.


I love this song!


Have an awesome day!
