People Just as Crazy as Me

Friday Favorites - TGIF Y'ALL!

How long was this week? I mean seriously, could it have gone any slower.

I would like to report, that Emry and I did not run last night.... I developed odd SHOOTING pain on the ride home, and determined, it was better use of my time, and energy.. to not run, but to do some mild cleaning, and moderate stretching... And, can I tell you, I feel much better this morning. But, cue up my run for tomorrow at 5a... because I'm going to hit that pavement HARD.

Let me tell you the favorite moments of my week.

ONE have made it another week, without frivolously binge eating. If you've been with me for a bit, you will know that my healthy journey has had a few bumps in it recently. I had been feeling famished, and thus, the food addict took over. It has been approximately 2 weeks since my last food binge. No ice cream, no crazy pantry raids.. no fast food runs... Nothing. Even last night, when I was in pain, and super tired... My body sent me the signals, that "food may help." But, I declined... seriously proud of myself. And, I am not famished anymore... Adding in extra healthy snacks and a post workout protein shake.. really made a huge difference.

TWO and Kisses from my little man.. he and I have had a wonderful week.. with very little need of the "Mom Voice". That's always appreciated... Perhaps running is helping to fuel his extra energy and adding some focus into his world? I don't care why it's happening, I'm just happy for a week of no yelling.

get it.. a little spice?
Trying new classes at the YMCA. This week, I have officially dubbed CLASS WEEK. I took a cycling class on Tuesday (didn't love it, it hurt darnit, but I may do it again), Full body insanity on Wednesday (because I was unmotivated to run... or do anything by myself) and my normal Tabata Thursday.  This week has been different, but active, and a little spice is nice.. RIGHT?

FOUR Klay. I mean, It hasn't happened yet. But, while at the Farmer's Market on Tuesday, Emry and I came across this vendor, and it turns out that they have a BEER GARDEN and Farm to Table Fare Pub... Emry wanted to take his daddy there SO BAD.. so we are taking him there for dinner tonight. But, ever since Tuesday, keeping it a secret... Has been so much fun... Emry is totally excited, and I am excited to watch it go down.

FIVE streaming TV shows. I have been binge watching the first season of the show Popular. It's just easy watching/listening... And, honestly, I remember watching it when I was in.. Middle School? High School? Takes me back to a simpler time. And that's always appreciated.

Laughter is always good:
laundry multiplies like rabbits
We all think it

anyone else?
sometimes how I feel after posting
Damn straight.

Beware of Facebook "Health" Pages

You ever read something, and think... wow, that just doesn't make sense. Or an opinion is posted, and then when you have questions, the person who posts completely flips the opinion...

Let me explain what, I am talking about.

I Follow "Eat Clean. Train Mean. Live Green." on my personal FB account. There are interesting recipes, positive memes and sometimes interesting articles... Yesterday, the following was posted (if you want to see the video click here). So, I watched and listened to the video. Then I noted this statement, from the woman that posted the video :

"I fast every day from the time that I wake until around lunch. Eating every 3 hours around the clock is a one-way ticket to obesity and multiple other chronic diseases."

 Color me confused.. This is a person who actively weight lifts, and is always telling the members of the page to small meals and snacks regularly... So, the information was conflicted... So, if you read below... you will notice my questions... Because, I was highly confused.. The information made sense, but, it didn't really compute when it came to active lifters.
