Horrible Blogger!!!

Slacker..........Not really, but I'm sure that's what some are thinking!  I realized that I haven't blogged since the Lincoln 1/2.  I realize that I very nearly died in that experience.  :)  But no excuse for neglecting my fans.  All 5 of you.  So, here's a little recap of what has been happening in this Runaway Ranchwife's life!

T-ball started.  The kids had their first games last night and they were amazing.  And if you ask them, they won.  They kicked that other team right in the ass.  (Even though they do not keep score and no one gets out.)  They don't need to know that though.  They are certain the major leagues will be calling them today!

We had the most amazing week branding.

I usually bail about the 3rd night of camping and claim that mom the kids are tired and need a night in their own beds.  Not so much this year.  I loved camping and spending time with the boys and everyone else that works here.  It was pry the most relaxing "vacation" I've had in a while.  And who wouldn't love seeing their oldest boy roping for the first time in the branding pen?  I was a proud momma.

And was equally proud of these two.....

Who were shits......

And my beautiful niece...

How could we not love these faces!!

The final thing I've been doing is changing my health for the better!!
My bossy loving sister, talked me into trying Body by Vi.  She couldn't have been more right about how I would feel!!  I LOVE the way I have felt the last 3 weeks!  I have more energy than I have in years, and my mood has improved significantly.  The added bonus......I've lost 6 lbs.  Whoop Whoop!!!!  I loved the product so much that I am now a distributor.  There is no better feeling in the world than sharing a product that you know can help others be healthier than they've ever been!  LOVIN the Vi-Life!!

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …

Taking a run on the dreadmill.........

This is sorta how I feel when I have to run on the treadmill.   I've come to dread it!!  I would much rather run outside, but there are days when I just have enough time to run upstairs and start up the treadmill.  I try to watch mindless reality tv that requires no deep thought or concentration.  What I usually end up doing though is watching my mileage and at the EXACT moment I hit my target for the day, I hurtle myself from that damn machine.  Literally, I cannot get off fast enough. 

A few weeks ago we spent the night at my MIL's house.  She just got her home gym all set up and so I used her treadmill for a quick workout while I was there.  I despise her...............because she has a BITCHIN treadmill.  Seriously, felt like I was floating on a cloud instead of pounding the concrete like mine now feels like after experiencing HEAVEN on hers.  This is how I felt while on the BITCHIN treadmill.
No REALLY!!!!!!!!  It was like I was outside cause it has one of those monitors …
