Hello from 30,000 feet in the air!  Gotta love in-flight WIFI!

IMG_9166 

Another week, another incredible chance to spread the Operation Beautiful message.  This time around, my speaking event shenanigans are taking me back to good old Miami. I don’t know what it is about Miami, but the city sure loves Operation Beautiful.  And I love going to Miami, of course, because it’s my hometown, and one of my very best friends, Lisette, still lives there.  I can’t wait to see her.

 

I cannot find my laptop case so I’ve been carrying around my computer wrapped up in a t-shirt.  The t-shirt is to prevent accidental scratches. The laptop is technically the Husband’s – he loans it to me for work trips – and he keeps it in perfect condition.

So… yeah.  Just had to throw that little fact in there.  Peeps in the Atlanta airport thought I was one strange bird.

 

Breakfast was mighty early – a peanut butter sandwich and a green juice.

photo 1

This juice recipe is AWESOME.  I think I found a new favorite combo.  It’s very refreshing and light. 

healthy green juice

Breakfast #2 happened during my layover.  I was so excited that my flight was out of Terminal B because this food place is THE. BEST. THING. EVER because they offer grits.

IMG_9163 

I had grits with corn salsa and tomatoes and a bunch of eggs.  Not the most glamorous food photo, but it was much more tasty than it looks.  I’m always jazzed to find healthy vegetarian options in the airport – they are few and far between (although I have noticed a big improvement over the years!).

Book Giveaway

 

On my first flight, I finished reading this book:

IMG_9167

Runner’s World is releasing a new book in April, “The Runner’s World Big Book of Running for Beginners,” which was co-written by Bart Yasso, Jen Van Allen, and Amby Burfoot.  It was sent to me for review, and I loved it – and thought I should mail it to a reader who would really benefit from the positive, encouraging messages inside.  This book is definitely designed for the true newbie, especially a person who is looking to make a major health shift, lose a significant amount of weight, or is really starting from running ground zero.  It’s PACKED with tons of basic but helpful information.

IMG_9171

IMG_9172 

Here’s the official snapshot of the book:

 

  • 5 Training plans to help you start exercising, start running, run nonstop, run faster, and run longer
  • No-fail weight-loss strategies
  • Ideas for meals and snacks to eat before you run, on the road, and after you’re done
  • Injury-prevention tips including a guide on which pains to run through and which pains demand surrender
  • Inspirational stories from people who used running as a tool to lose weight, stop smoking, overcome illness and heartache, and manage chronic pain.

 

Maybe this book is the perfect inspiration you need to start running!  Or maybe you can think of a friend or family member who would love to read it.  I’ll pick the winner next Monday.  USE THE RAFFLECOPTER WIDGET BELOW TO ENTER – blog comments will not count as entries!

And now, just for fun, what’s the best race sign you’ve ever seen?  My favorites include:  Worst Parade Ever, Don’t Poop Your Pants, and Chuck Norris Never Ran a Marathon.  Here are some of my other favorite race signs.

    I’ve seen (and made) plenty of hilarious race signs, but I think my FAVORITE race signs were from a water station sponsored by a girls’ group in Des Moines. They were around Mile 16 of my full marathon, and the most memorable of the group was “Run this race for all the girls chosen last in gym class.” It really brought me back to all my middle-school insecurities, the kiddos I teach on a daily basis, etc., and gave me such a great boost of “let’s do this.”

    My favourite money saving tip for students: carry a reusable travel mug and your favourite tea with you to the library. Just fill it up with hot water (Starbuck is super friendly about it), add tea, save $2 ;) I save about $40 a month doing this, plus you aren’t tossing out coffee cups every day!

    I ran the Bataan Memorial Death March this weekend and it was brutal! The course has 5 miles of uphill followed by rolling hills, and more than half of it was on sand. (Totally worth it though – the race is awesome! And how tough it is pales in comparison to the experience of the soldiers who participated in the actual march in the Philippines during WWII.) Anyway, the best sign that I saw was worn on the back of a fellow runner. It said, “You think this is hard? I teach middle school!”

My new fav food is asparagus and I can’t get enough of it! I also want to continue to workout and get toned before my beach trip in June. So far I’ve been working out 4 times a week for the past 6 weeks with no plans of quitting now. I’m past the hump and finally look forward to working out each evening.

    My health goal is to stay away from developing an autoimmune disease, since most of my family already has. A little scary!

    I’ve lost 86 lbs so far and I walk everywhere. I’ve always wanted to run and I’m at a weight where I’m not afraid to try. As soon as I get the doc’s clearance I’ll be out there hitting the pavement. Would love to read this book and if I don’t win it I will definitely buy it.

    Small steps….control my cholesterol and high triglycerides with diet and exercise only, run a mile….still working on that one, run a few races once I conquer that first mile. I have a blood clotting disorder that can leave me with funky energy levels and that has made it very difficult to be able to run consistently.

    F2O is one of my favorite things in the South! I have family that live in Chattanooga and every time I visit them, I ask to go to dinner at Fresh to Order. I don’t know what it is, but I love their salads. They are so good and a nice break from other ‘fast food’ type places! The t-shirt idea is kind of brilliant actually. Maybe they should make laptop hoodies for a little added protection! I know those iPod sock things used to be popular when I was in high school so it’s not too far off the mark!

    I want to be able to swim non-stop for 10 minutes. Reaching that goal will feel awesome! I’m also starting at 0 for running.

    Lose weight and make a dramatic life change: exercise regularly (today…I am a ‘mediocre’ exerciser….sometimes getting lazy for a few months then I jump back in again…why or why).
