YIKES!

My sister and I are watching Little Miss Perfect - it's a show about little girls in beauty pageants. And I'm not going to lie - but it freaks me out. These parents are crazy! Pushing these kids to the max! But now that I think about it - I know I've seen crazier parents at any given sporting event or practice. Hmm.

Anyway - we got in a killer group run on weds. Even though it was super humid, we got in about 8 miles on the trails. But I think my nutrition was a bit off because right when I got to work, I felt like death. So after eating a bowl of oatmeal with strawberries - not much better. Scarfed down a banana - and I felt great! I guess my potassium was down. Or I just made my coffee to strong :)

After my little potassium downer yesterday morning, it ended up being one of those days at work. For no reason I just wanted to cry. I just wanted to throw my fax machine out the windsow, kick my computer and unplug my phone. Thankfully Jason knows how to handle me on days like that. So when I got home, wine was chilled and the Ipod was playing great jazz music. And he made fish tacos. That is a staple in our diet - blackened fresh fresh with fresh cilantro, cabbage, and a spicy sauce on a corn tortilla. "Cali Style" as he calls it. I love having a boyfriend who loves to cook. And is good at it!





Tonight was an awesome 3500 in the pool. When I got out of my car is was about 68 outside, and when I jumped out of the pool it was freaking 52!! Talk about a sprint from the pool to the locker room! So I've been searching on Splish.com for awhile now trying to decide what suit to get - and I think I finally made a decision:

Thoughts? Feelings? I think it's funny - people are always freaked out about sharks in the gulf. And yes! They are there! Just like there are bears in the woods :)

I'm so glad tomorrow is FRIDAY! Hopefully the weather will be nice so that we can get a long ride outside instead of rocking it out on the trainer. I'm also going to attempt to make 'Lara Bars' we'll see if my inner Martha comes out.

52 degrees? Give me a break. Right here right now it is about 30, blowing snow, winds are gusting to about 50mph, and it will be turning to rain by lunch ime. I'll be wearing a parka to the pool.

Anyway, enjoy, best of luck in New Orleans. I'll let you know how the bars turn out.

I guess you are right - I should not complain on the chilly 52 degrees. But when you are swimming outside, it's dark and windy - it's so hard to get out of the pool and make the run to the locker room! Brrrr!!!! :)

That suit is awesome! Hmmm, it was 17 degrees here this morning on my way to swim, ugh! I always want to jump in with my fleece on...talk about drowning!

Hi Chloe! That suit is adorable...just say "yes". BTW, I have a question about your coffee comment. I have noticed that when I drink two cups in the morning, after a hard workout I feel nauseous. Is it the caffeine, the strength, or just too much? Thoughts?

OMG, did you get that suit? I hope so, it's hysterical. Those tacos look delish. My husband Patrick is the chef in our family and I agree, it's the best!
