new happenings

A few random Tuesday Tidbits:

1. I started to try to get myself "marathon-ready" today. It's going to be a long, slow process for me, but it's happening.

2. Vanessa, over at Gourmet Runner, does something that I'm going to start implementing here. She posts her 'weekly workout recap', which I think is a great way to track workouts. What I'm going to do is on Monday's I'll post what I want to accomplish for the week, and then on Sundays (brace yourselves, I'll be doing weekend posts! maybe...) I'll tell ya how I did.

3. I love sweet potatoes. Seriously, I don't know how I went 24 years shunning them.

4. I bought a new digital camera! It is tiny and cute!

5. I had an awesome breakfast Saturday morning with my Houston blogger friends and in true blogger FAIL none of us took any pictures. How does that happen?? Also, totally out of my comfort zone to do something like that (meeting up with randoms) BUT so glad I did. Plus I feel like we're all secretly BFF's even though I'd never met any of them ('cept Heidi!) before Saturday. WIN for blogger meet-up!

But I figured to start, I'll show you what I'm supposed to be doing this week and then Sunday (maybe Monday because it's a long weekend) we'll recap and see how all that business works out :)

Have a fantastic Tuesday!


  1. Congrats on starting your marathon training!

  2. I agree - that's a great idea...I might have to copy too =).
    Lookin' forward to stalking (ahem..I mean reading)your workouts!

  3. Yay! I'm glad you like the idea, I stole it from someone else too! So good to have your goals for the week made public too, keeps you accountable!

  4. Good luck with the marathon training! I am *maybe* thinking about training for a marathon, so I'll be looking forward to your workout recaps :)

    It was nice meeting you on Saturday! I actually had a camera in my purse and completely forgot to break it out. Definitely a blogger fail.

  5. rock on with your marathon training! I'm still on the fence about committing to one, so I will vicariously live through your training!

    I was just thinking how we were all such bad bloggers not to take a single pic - what were the chances?!

    yay for a new camera! =)

  6. I discovered sweet potatoes as an adult and I'm in love too! They are so health & so easy to prepare :)

  7. I know I should acknowledge the marathon thing but to me the new camera is so more exciting, haha!! YAY for getting a new camera and now you can start back with your New Years resolution goal with pictures, you can start this weekend at the boil and your Birthday!!

    Congrats and good luck with training also :) I know you will out do yourself and not struggle at all!!
