A Little Bit of Everything

Not much going on in the running front of my life this week. I mean I have been running a tad, but not with much of a focus or goal here. This week is my downtime before starting my Chicago marathon training on Monday...which I have not yet established any plans for. Lately my attitude towards things has been more of a one day at a time kinda thing, and that is four days away from I'll touch base with that later I suppose.

So if I ever were to veer off on random tangents about my life, I suppose that this would be the perfect time for that.

I have an obsession with my iPhone. I got the wonderful piece of technology back in February only because my hubby wanted one, and apparently we are twinsies and need to do the same things. In the past 4 months I have not put the dang thing down, I just cannot "unplug" myself. It has taken control of my life, and sadly I am okay with that. I take it with me to the bathroom, to bed, to the gym, and everywhere in between. I do not let others use it, and I cannot live without it. Don't even get me started on the Scrabble app. I think I have a problem.

I think that my hubby is intentionally driving me crazy tonight. He is crunching loud on potato chips and watching my most loathed show on television, Glee, as I am typing and trying to read. Why do I hate singing shows so much, and why am I annoyed that he is also trying to spark up conversation with me? Clearly there is something wrong with me, and we need larger living quarters.

In school, they always told us to end on a positive note. So on the good side of life today I finally stopped being the procrastinating dope that I usually am and decided to take a leap of faith in my brain and all of the contents which it is currently holding. Today is the day that I FINALLY took my American College of Sports Medicine Personal Training Certification test. This is something that I wanted to do back in April, but let other things get in the way and just kept pushing it back. But now I have it, and it feels so good to have this certification under my belt and can get cracking on my new career venture.

I have a pretty sweet apron collection, and I rock each and everyone of them.

I'm a pretty bad ass baker.
Don't hate, I went to culinary school and used to do it professionally.

Why I felt the need to share mindless things about myself today, I do not know. Running brings me sanity and since I have not been doing much of that lately, I suppose that maybe I've lost it. Or it could just be the champagne that I've been drinking this evening.


  1. LOL!!! everything you said about your iphone describes my relationship with mine. even down to me and my hubs getting iphones within a week of each other in february. i went and got one 3 days later cause i was so jealous of his haha

  2. That giant whisk is hilarious! I did some baking today too (this is a rare event in my life, as is cooking). I had 2 bananas get wayyy too ripe. I made banana nut bread and threw in some apples and cranberries. yummm :)

    I like your cute apron and CONGRATS on taking that exam!! Good for you, lady! :)

  3. Congrats on the test - that's awesome!

  4. Girl you deserve some champagne!!!!

    That is fab that you passed that exam, major congrats.

    You look so cute in your apron photo, loves it. And love your hidden baker talents, I was not aware of that.

  5. I am so happy you hate Glee too!!! I thought I was the only one :) haha.

  6. I also hate glee, super happy I'm no longer alone on that one ;)

    Congrats on the exam!

    Baking?! That is so cool you went to culinary school. I'm starting to think I missed my calling in life- I should have become a chef or a trainer.

  7. Congrats on the exam!!

    That's awesome that you went to culinary school!!

  8. Haha, love this! Maybe it's the champagne ;-) but why not? Sometimes it's good to indulge. Anyways, just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that your blog is really motivating for me. It's encouraging for me to not be a wimp in my training. To not be afraid to try and run faster (even though I think I'll die!!). To just get out there and do it.

  9. What are your plans with the certification? if you don't mind me asking:)

  10. so funny about your phone!! have a lovely weekend :)

  11. Congrats on the test!

    lol on Glee - it is my favorite show as well! I love the singing! I also love American Idol, which is no surprise, haha Not sure what I would do without that show.

  12. Oh..the Iphone obsession. I'm pretty sure I'm going to see that A&E show "Intervention" soon!!

    I love the mindless posts! The annoying hubby-I know nothing about this-ha! Congrats on the certification! Lovin' the apron. I am not addicted to the Iphone but I am addicted to "Cupcake Wars" in the middle of the night when I can't sleep!

    Champagne-Bud light is gonna have to do here tonight....Have a great weekend!!
