3 things thursday

hello blog world and "welcome" to my new followers! i've notice quite a few new faces and i'm so glad to have you along! when i reach 50 followers, we will have a giveaway! so tell your friends about me :)

sorry to have been MIA yesterday, but work has been busy! and also, writing a post after guest blogger, katye, now that's very intimidating! thanks again for your wonderful post

1. i joined someones challenge, jillian micheals 30 day shred, and had every intention of starting yesterday. i woke up early and put the dvd started playing, but then got to the part where you have to select a scene-- i lost my remote years ago and could not switch selections! so much for that! but while making my breakfast & lunch it did give me the idea to only make food: no more fast food! i am challenging myself not to eat fast food for the rest of the month! i may give myself a little leeway on the weekends, but during the week absolutely no fast food! let's see if i can do this?? can you?

2. last night's practice didn't go too well. now, my other shin is bothering me! (but not to fret, i made another airrosti appt for tomorrow so hopefully i'll be healed for my 14 mile run!) i walked the whole way...and don't think i quite made it to 4 miles. i did ice when i got home and foam rolled. i am completely in love w/foam rolling! it is instant relief...for the moment anyway! will keep ya posted!

3. katye also awarded me with the "cherry on top award." yay for my second award! :)


The Rules:

1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

that is a very hard question because i truly believe all the choices i have made, right or wrong have made me the person i am today. i think kenny chesney says it best in one of my favorite songs,

a lot of things different.

i would definitely have taken more risks and less chances. after hearing this song, i have made a conscious effort to live by these lyrics.

2. The second thing you have to do is, pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have gotten this award.

for the lovely award and again for guest blogging!



  1. Grace!

    What's involved in the SHRED? I've heard of this a few times.

    Thanks for the great award ... I received it twice over the last two weeks - here is my initial response - but I want to thank you for picking me. It really means a lot to be in such a great group of runners!

  2. i have to agree - i made some mistakes in my dating past, but those lead me to "resort" to finding love via the internet - and thereby finding my husband! i'd hate to mess that one up!

    thanks for the award - i'll have to get my post up in a couple days. maybe i'll schedule it for Labor day since I'll be out and about and unable to post.

  3. I love the Jillian challenge! I've been trying to do a mix of the book and p90x. I'm soooo sore!

  4. Thanks for the award! :) And good luck on the no eating out challenge! That would be a tough one for me. But the only meal I typically eat out is dinner. I think it would be a fun challenge though to come up wtih new recipes and such. I will be here cheering you on!

  5. I love all Jillian Michaels! I saw you found my blog, and it's nice to "meet" you! :) I look forward to keeping up w/ your blog!

  6. i love jillian...well i loved her until she started endorsing diet pills. but she'd still hardcore none the less!

  7. I have had that problem with losing the DVD player remote too. :) Hope you get to give the shred a try, it is a fun, hard workout! I like level 2 the best.

  8. New follower here!

    I totally feel ya on the diet thing. I've been on a carb-cycling diet for almost 8 weeks now. Been making my food the whole time, with the occasional eating out and attempting to order healthy selections. I've been living off of egg whites & salsa with oatmeal, tilapia or steak and brown rice, protein shakes, and other low fat, high protein foods and healthy carbs. Right now, I'm rapidly approaching burn-out mode, but I'm proud of myself for the success I've had on this diet. So, BEST OF LUCK with not eating any fast food! You'll only be proud of yourself at the end of the month. :)

  9. Thanks for the tag! I agree with you - changing the past (good or bad) might not leave me where I am today.

    LOL about the remote situation. You could play the DVD on your computer?

  10. Wow! Thank you so much for the award! Very sweet!
