The Friday Five

Five things Friday:

1. I was going to follow up with last weeks Flame Free Confession, but decided to leave it for next week. Although I do appreciate all of the confessions you shared - they helped me feel normal. 
2. After last weeks egg's and Oreo incident I have been trying to kick sugar to the curb. It is so hard - I swear when it comes to sugar I am so mindless and just eat. The worst is homemade or fresh chocolate chip cookies I could eat a dozen and not even realize it. The past few days have been really hard but it is getting easier. I only had one day where I actually felt like I was going through withdrawals.....that sucked.

3. This week a received a cycling skirt from a wonderful blogger (thanks Kim). I was so happy when it arrived, I ripped open the package and instantly the jokes started flowing from my husbands mouth. Now I know any cyclist will not think that the padding looks funny. But I am not a 'true' cyclist, I go to spin class and get my ride on. I think it doesn't help that the lining is bright pink and because of that it tends to look more like male anatomy. Many jokes followed.  I will have to get a photo with the skirt on and I may give the skirt a male name. That way I can say inappropriate things like 'Gus gave me a good ride today'. Either way I will report back.

4.  We carved one of our pumpkins last night.  Who am I kidding I took photo's and my husband did the carving. I don't have the skills to carve a pumpkin without it looking like it was done by a 4 year old. My daughter loves pumpkins but is usually terrified of the pumpkin guts. This year she wasn't afraid of them but she refused to touch them. Baby steps I guess. I can't talk about Evie with out posting a photo of her.


5.  My run last night was painful. 4 miles 2 at 11:40, those two miles were tough. Of course the first 3 miles of anything are tough and then I feel like my legs loosen up and I start to get in the grove.  Next up 3 miles at an easy pace, just what I need for a Friday run.

6.  Ok so I have six items, but this song popped in my head today and reminded me of high school. A song I am going to have to add to my next play list.  For those who are wondering this song came out in 1993 and I graduated in 1996.



I hope everyone has a great weekend. Don't forget to blog hop and I hope all of your runs this weekend are enjoyable.

  7. big time working on my sugar habit. I am however finding that when I eat more veggies and more protein, I crave it a lot less!

  8. Umm, that is kind of dirty looking. :)

    We went over to eastern WA last weekend looking for pumpkins. Apparently they don't make them there, so we'll have to try again on our side of the mountains!

    I'll never forget when my daughter was 3 or 4 and a Montessori kid. We were carving pumpkins at home and I said "eewwy, gooey pumpkin guts!" and she said, "No mama, that's called endocarp and mesocarp."

  13. I think they made that padding like that on purpose :P And i hear you on the chocolate chip cookies... I have NO shut-off mechanism. I eat them until I realize I feel super sick and THEN I stop. Ugh.

    Your girl with that big pumpkin... SUPER cute!
