Any idea...

On how I can get paid to read blogs?! You may laugh, but I'm serious. I LOVE reading blogs. Anyone's and everyone's. Chase wonders how I stumble onto all of these blogs of people I don't know, and then come up with ideas that I want to try. Those ideas range from recipes to crafts to DIY (do-it-yourself) projects. I end up reading so many things and getting so many ideas that my brain becomes overwhelmed and consumed. I think someone should create a job where you read blogs and try different projects... Really, if anyone knows where this dream can become a reality... you know where to find me.

I apologize... this blog DEFINITELY needs some pictures. I am just awful. My goal is to post (from home-where all the pictures are) at least once this week. I need to update our house pictures and the projects that have been going on around there. Hopefully you all will forgive me-- I'm pretty sure no one reads this anyways... haha

I did run last night. It was a lot tougher than I imagined... Let's just hope it gets easier each night. Despite the title of this post, that is not what I was going to confess.

Last night while watching a movie, Chase looks over at me and asks what I'm eating. I replied (guiltlessly), "Cereal!" Props for me, right?! Does it still count if my cereal was in the cookie dough mix? Sunday, I made Monster cookies from the Pioneer Woman's website. They were amazing. They have oatmeal (cereal), chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, m & m's, extra salt, and rice krispies (cereal). I made the cookies, but got sick of baking (I'd already made granola) and decided to refrigerate the dough. Last night, I decided to eat it, and that it consisted mainly of cereal... It's not like I said I was eating fruit, right! I didn't really fib to my husband, right?

It begins today

It's true. Marathon training begins today! The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is in April. Yes, I realize we are beginning early, BUT we're trying to complete a beginner's training schedule and then move on to an intermediate one before April! We are starting traying for a walk/run marathon. We have our next 16 weeks of workouts printed off and (will be) hanging on our fridge when we get home. It's going to be that constant reminder that Chase and I both need.

We did the OKC Memorial Marathon (1/2 marathon) 2 years ago, and LOVED it. It was such a neat experience. Keep in mind, I could hardly walk the next few days. I loved it. It's such an amazing experience to run with thousands of people you don't know, all for the same reasons, and many different reasons. It was very moving.

Tonight's workout consists of a 3:2 ration. We run for 3 minutes, walk for 2 (yes it's the beginner style) and do this for 45 minutes. Keep me accountable. The weather is finally cooperating and is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to running, and maybe not sweating. Maybe...
