My sports bra burn around my neck is killing me!


Close-up of the hardcoreness!


Thanks for all your well-wishes!  I was just glad I was home to put out the fire!  And I’m really sorry, but this post is not nearly as exciting as the last one…




I did have a good dinner:


I used 4 oz. of leftover filet mignon to make a yummy Whole Wheat Cous Cous pasta and steamed asparagus.


This took me 5 minutes to cook. I love leftovers.


Plus a side salad:


Dessert was two of Abbie’s raw balls:


Mid-Afternoon Snacks


Here are all my munchies from the afternoon:




Check out Oprah (Right NOW!!)


Matt from Matt, Liz, and Madeline is on Oprah!  If you haven’t checked out his blog before, it’s amazing, beautifully written and photographed, gripping, and real…. go read it!  And turn on Oprah!

    I’d take a sports bra burn over a fire any day! Enjoy the day off from running tomorrow- you deserve it!

    Put some Neosporin on that bra burn a.s.a.p. It will stop the burning/pain.
