The Color Run!

Y’all I survived! Barely. I felt amazing alive during the run – let’s be honest, I walked most of the way – however, the days following were a little touch and go. It became slightly difficult to walk but that’s not important. We had so much fun and it was nice to actually spend time with John Paul for a change.

Pre run sexiness…

Don’t be jealous of our hotness.

Let’s talk about the hubs for a moment. I think he was under the false impression that we were actually going to run. It was cute really. When it was our turn to start I did indeed run, you know so I would look legit. Every few minutes the hubs would ask every so politely, “You wanna run now?” And I would reply, “No thanks!”

I was so excited each time we reached a new color because I knew I was 1 kilometer closer to getting some food. I was all kinds of hungry by the time it was over.

We survived. We finished and we weren’t last. I call that a  success! So if you never exercise, your favorite activity is eating, and you’re thinking of doing the Color Run, go for it! You can (and totally should) do it! Thanks friends for the support and encouragement! I feel accomplished!

So What Wednesday

So What Wednesday

So what if….

  • I suck at blogging! I love it and I’m really seriously trying to get back into it. For real this time. Seriously.
  • I’m such a wuss and I skipped church Sunday because I didn’t want to leave Turner McCartney screaming in the nursery. I’ll grow a pair one day…maybe.
  • My hubs isn’t working much and I’m still holding a part time status. We’re poor but we’re making it work!
  • It’s 100 degrees in the house and I’m reluctant to turn the air on. Power is expensive yo!
  • Turner Mc has nutella for breakfast more that I’d like to admit. Hey at least she’s eating. And it’s good for you, right?!.
  • I’m playing a single mom these days and I kinda suck at it.

That’s all I’ve got this week!

Run Forrest Run!!!

Y’all I have lost my mind! I signed the hubs and myself up for a 5k. Yes, you read that right! A 5k. As in 3.1 miles of “running” as if in some sort of race. I mean let’s be honest. We all know I don’t run. The last time I actually ran and didn’t die was cheerleading practice my junior year of high school….10 years ago.


What the hell was I thinking??!! I mean the most exercise I get is sprinting from the couch to the microwave to get my pizza rolls before they get cold. So how am I going to pull this off without completely embarrassing myself? Luckily the run seems to be pretty laid back and walkers are totally accepted. But honestly I’m not so sure I can walk 3.1 miles and not hyperventilate. It’s going to be interesting to say the least. I think we will have a blast but let’s just hope we all survive. John Paul thinks he’s a super star athlete but he hasn’t exercised in a looong time. I mean he can’t be all buff while I veg out constantly, therefore I try my best to pull him down with me! We’ll see how it goes and I’ll definitely keep y’all posted on the outcome. If you never hear from me again then you can assume I didn’t survive.

The run is in 5 days. FIVE days! Any tips on how to prepare for a 5k in 1 week? Let me know!
