I hate running skirts. (Notice that its bolded and italicized. That means that I hatehatehate it).

I ate an entire pan of Butterscotch Brownies last week.

I'm on Day 3 of "No treats until the marathon" and I've successfully had a bag of swedish fish, a chocolate brownie fresh from the oven topped with vanilla ice cream, and a bowl of the best (and unhealthiest) jalapeno artichoke dip you've ever had- all in the last 2 days.

It's nearly 10 AM and I have yet to shower, get dressed, or eat breakfast. Annnd my kids are still in the jam jams... but they have been fed! Go me!

Tapering is my favorite part of running.

Well, besides "carbo loading."

I'm addicted to The Bachelor Pad. If Vienna and Kasey win tonight, I will run screaming from my house.

I'm still hoping to run TOU on Saturday in under 3:40.

Spill your beans. I won't tell.

Showering is overrated!! Carbo loading is the best part. Um, wanna have a bachelor pad party next week. I think I need to have some jalapeƱo artichoke dip right now! Girl, I am STOKED for you to KILL TOU in FIVE DAYS!!!

I am checking your blog in between classes because I am kind of obsessed with you.

I sometimes drink the entire half gallon of silk in one day... And that stuff isn't cheap. Sorry Jason. I secretly read blogs while I should be working. And if I wouldn't be shunned by society I might nevercahower again... Except when I need a good cry.
Ps I wish I were there to eat those treats with you! They sound so good!!!

Kids can play just as well in PJ's and then you have less laundry. It's a win win.

I love me some sweets.

I love tapering.

And I hate running skirts.

Love this post.

Don't worry, I had about a million cookies this weekend. Not to mention all the dough I snitched before the actual baking took place. And ice cream. Ugh, it just happens sometimes. Darn sweet tooth!!!!

I'm so excited for your marathon!

Love this!

Confession: I spend more time blogging at work than working. opps!

Confession #2: I have gained 3lbs since Saturday. Being 'injured' makes me hungry.

Confession #3: I wish I was running TOY with you. I think we would make an awesome team.

Confession #4: I made a pact with my running friends to eat no candy for 2 weeks and I only made it 2 hours.

All I got for now. :) Love ya!!

I can't believe I didn't see this post until now... I love this. I am so glad I am not the only one who hears "no treats" and immediately scarfs down five cookies.

You know my constant confession... I don't remember the last time I washed my hair. I have got to stop being proud of that one.

are these supposed to be bad things or excerpts from my journal? ;) haha, but yeah. here's a confession: i haven't been up this side of 9 in a looong time. daddy does morning duty and since i have to be in charge today it's cartoons and blog reading til i can function as a human. so maybe like 10am?. mom of the year, maybe not. ;)
