Runaway Mutts.....

Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!   Our dogs keep running all over the damn country.  It's driving me insane.  Here one minute and then gone the next.  I'm blaming them for being MIA from blogging again......hey, I can blame them.  They can't talk back.  Thank goodness for great neighbors.  They saw them running by their place and at least in the right direction to get back home.  It REALLY pisses me off too when I go to get them and they act as if nothing is wrong at all.  Like "hey, there's that stupid human that keeps coming back to pick us up after our amazing adventures".  I'm teaching them a lesson tonight.  I locked them inside the yard fence.  So, unless they can jump over a tall fence, they are SOL.  At least for tonight. 
Other than chasing dogs around, we've just been chasing kiddos the last few days.  The boys had their first Jr. Rodeo weekend.  They didn't break any records, but they had fun and that's what matters right now.  I've mellowed from being "that mom" when my kids are competing, to really not giving a shit if they kick everyone's ass right now.  I mean really.......they aren't trying out for the fucking Olympics at this age.  We had some really good runs and some not so great.  But surprise!!!!......there's another one this weekend and there will be many more throughout their lifetime that they can attend.  lol

In Take Shape for Life news......down 8 lbs!!  I'm so happy with this.  And it's been sooooo easy.  I'm not hungry, and I don't find myself craving the sugar and crap that I did before.  If you want to check it out, head over to my website and see for yourself what the program can do for you!

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 …
