Our dog could eat you.

January 31, 2011

I loved every single comment from my motivation post.  I really don’t know what I would do without you guys…..no joke.  If you ever need a little motivation, awesome mantras or to know your not alone go to the comment section HERE.

The first 14 hours of my Sunday consisted of laying on the couch reading, stalking you and watching ‘Kitchen Disasters’ on Hulu.  Then we went to church.


During the summer there was a rumor going around our church that I was prego.  I wondered why and found out it was because I always bring snacks to munch on and the other girls thought the only reason I would do that was because I was pregnant.  I then explained to them that there is no way I could go more than two hours without eating something unless I am sleeping.  It’s just how I roll. I am used to people thinking I am a little off my rocker, it’s all good.


Dinner tonight was at my Aunts…..delicious lobster bisque from Whole Foods and a baked potato bar!!

I followed my own advice and changed right back into pj’s asap and ended up color matching the Aunt.  PS she is a hardcore marathoner, century rider and half iron woman. AMAZING!


Those would be dark chocolate covered mangoes.  Try them now. Maybe I should put some self-tanner on those feets of mine.  Oh well, part of running is having ugly feet.


So, it isn’t my dog, it is my aunts but she is HUGE.  Feeding her straight up PB.  This dog could eat you.

The aunt hooked us up with groceries, we did our laundry there, some candy and we had a good time.  In the almost two years we have been married we haven’t had a washer or dryer…..we have never had to go to a laundromat.  We either do our laundry at my mom’s, sister’s or aunt’s.  Spending money on running gear and an iphone trumps a washer and dryer.  Plus, it is a good excuse to have to go hang out with the fam:)

P.S. I made up for my lack of candy last week in tootsie rolls, those things are addicting.


How often do you do laundry?

-Every Sunday.  I just run it through during family dinner.

What is your favorite chocolate dipped item?

-These mangoes were amazing but I would have to say chocolate dipped gummy bears are my absolute favorite.

Do you have cute feet?


Are you a snacker or do you do the three meals a day thing?

-I am the biggest snacker alive.  As soon as I start getting hungry I get afraid and grab a snack.  Normal? Probably not.

chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 31, 2011 at 6:33 am

I definitely do NOT have cute feet either. I love your church outfit – those tights are awesome! I always have food stashed in my purse and eat when others wouldn't think to either. You should have just told them you were "teething" (ha! Loved this!!!) and needed the extra chewing to stop the pain.

I'm with you on the PJ's – I think I have the same pants!!


chefkatelyn January 31, 2011 at 6:36 am

Giiiirl it is fine, I munch during every single one of my church services and just ignore the funny looks. Beeyotch, I like my food!

I never do laundry, you might as well go and call me a college student, I have my parents do my laundry every couple of weeks or so.

Chocolate covered pretzels!! Ahhh we make them every christmas and they are to die for, sweet and salty all at once:)

My feet are funny, my friends say my toes look "squishy" but I just call them pudgy:)

Slash I snack like it is my J-O-B, I get afraid too and get into snack attack mode. I do not know how people could only eat three times a day, I would probably start munching on pencils!


Lindsay and James Cotter January 31, 2011 at 6:42 am

ha, I bring snacks to church for me and the hubs! totally normal.
And you wanna see some ugly feet, mine are scary. Black toe nails, long second toe, and blisters. AWESOME!


Lindsay and James Cotter January 31, 2011 at 6:42 am

ha, I bring snacks to church for me and the hubs! totally normal.
And you wanna see some ugly feet, mine are scary. Black toe nails, long second toe, and blisters. AWESOME!


mealsformiles January 31, 2011 at 6:43 am

that dog is HUGE! I love him, he's almost bigger than my apartment.

I do laundry every sunday – homegirl only has so much running clothes. Chocolate covered pretzels are one of the best things ever invented. :)


MickiRuns January 31, 2011 at 6:44 am

laundry is an everyday thing. Husband is army, kiddo is 16 months old. Throw in a runner, and the washer & dryer are certain to get use!!

the snacking makes sense of the Teething tweet ;) LOL

i LOVE white chocolate pretzels. i bought candy in bulk last night and had to NOT go near the chocolate. could have been awful. i spent enough as is.

my feet are gross.

i do the 3 meals a day, but i love snacks. so i guess it's inbetween :) have a great monday!


Kimberly @ Im Not Done January 31, 2011 at 6:56 am

Chocolate covered almonds! And I am def. a snacker. I have a morning snack, afternoon snack, and then second afternoon snack if I'm running after work.


the real LC January 31, 2011 at 6:57 am

Just found your blog through Skinny Runner, love it! Your feet comment made me laugh. I don't think my feet could ever make an appearance on my blog, they're THAT bad!

I'm a huge snacker as well…people always ask why but I have severely low blood sugar and can't help it any other way than by frequent snacking!!


runyogarepeat January 31, 2011 at 7:03 am

That dog is HUGE! My favorite chocolate thing is chocolate covered pomegranate pieces, you can get a huge bag of them at Costco, and they're addicting! I am a big snacker, but I usually snack on small, healthy things like carrots or dried fruit.


Katy January 31, 2011 at 7:13 am

I am a huge snacker. Like big time!! Lol.


Steph January 31, 2011 at 7:15 am

Seriously I love your blog. You crack me up! My feet are horrible. I had to have foot surgery a few years ago so now I have a super awesome scar. I tell people I got it in a bar fight. I don't think they believe me, though.


Jody, RD January 31, 2011 at 7:17 am

That dog cracks me up!

Favorite chocolate covered food – pretzels HANDS DOWN.

Laundry day is also Sunday in our house except we have RIDICULOUS amounts of laundry. We usually do four loads every week (lights, darks, whites, baby stuff)

Definitely do not have cute feet. I had food reconstruction a little over a year ago and the scar runs down the top of my right foot. I call it my zipper foot.


Mamarunsbarefoot January 31, 2011 at 7:26 am

If I told you how often I did laundry you'd never be the same. Yes, I think I have cute feet. I eat three meals and snacks!!!!

Have a great day you superstar!


Nicole January 31, 2011 at 7:28 am

No cute feet here!!!!

OMG I Want that dog!!!@ Soooooooo cute!

Sounds like a great Sunday to me!

I go to my moms once a week to do laundry!


Jogging with Fiction January 31, 2011 at 7:32 am

I do laundry constantly. We have a small washer and dryer, but we accumulate a lot of dirty clothes because we both exercise constantly.

I have hideous feet, but at least I grew back my big toenail I lost last year from tons of running and crazy dancing at my wedding!

I snack like it's my job. It's 8:30am and I'm already contemplating my first snack of the day (I'm thinking an apple, in case you were wondering).


Maria January 31, 2011 at 7:39 am

I love the stockings you're wearing! You're adorable!

My feet are awful. They definitely look like I've been a runner for most of my life. But I've seen worse than mine.

I cannot wait to have my own washer and dryer. Right now I have to trek down to the spooky 1st floor of my building to wash laundry in ancient machines. It's quite the experience so I try to avoid laundry for as long as I can.


middleagedrunner January 31, 2011 at 7:41 am

I do laundry once a week in the winter and about 3 times a week in the summer. During the summer I can bomb thru 3-4 outfits a day what with running and riding. WHAT A MESS!
I like oreos dipped in hot fudge. No lie….
My feet are hideous- calloused, dry, often a bit hairy and I have freakishly long toes. SO ugly!


Holli Marie January 31, 2011 at 7:52 am

Such an amazing church outfit! I love the leggings! I think my feet are pretty awful, but I do get comments from people that think my feet look pretty good for being a soccer player/triathlete. To each their own I guess.

Dark chocolate covered dried cherries from Cherry Republic are my faves! It's probably a Michigan thing!

I am more on the 3 meals/day routine. I sit in class (yes I am in school, not teaching) all day and usually take some fruit for the afternoon blood sugar drop. I drink obnoxious amounts of water throughout the day and eat an absolutely huge bowl of Special K Red Berries for breakfast which gets me through the morn.

Laundry eh, about 1x/week, or less.


Matt @ The Athlete's Plate January 31, 2011 at 7:56 am

I always have to be eating too! Oh the life of a runner…


BeePie January 31, 2011 at 7:57 am

That dog could eat ALL of us! I try to eat healthy snacks frequently b/c if I go too long without eating I don't get hungry (weird, huh?) and then it's just downhill all the way into Grouchyville.
And I do laundry on Mondays. ALL. DAY. LONG


Gen January 31, 2011 at 7:58 am

I have ugly feet. Here's a quote from my mom: "Gen, I've never noticed this before, but your toes are weird-shaped!"
I snack ALL of the time…..like I carry stuff around with me to munch on as if I'll never see food again!
I pretty much like chocolate dipped anything….marshmallows, strawberries, apples, pineapple, pretzels, peanut butter…..you name it!


Gracie (Complicated Day) January 31, 2011 at 8:00 am

I used to do my laundry during Sunday dinner before I got our stackable washer and dryer.
My feet? Please. They scare me sometimes when I get out of the shower. They look like hands…man-hands.


EFE January 31, 2011 at 8:02 am

that is my DREAM dog! great pyrenees, right?


Jess (Daly Authenticity) January 31, 2011 at 8:14 am

Okay, that dog would SERIOUSLY eat me.

I am a little OCD with laundry. I do it whenever there appears to be a "half-full" basket. I get scared my husband will run out of a necessity.

I love love LOVE chocolate dipped pretzels.Salty and sweet?!? Sign me up!

My feet? My husband says my toes are the only "chubby" part of my body. Attractive, I know.

I pretty much stick to the 3 meals a day thing, although I know snacking is better for you.


Savannah January 31, 2011 at 8:15 am

The biggest dog I have ever seen! HUGE!

I try to do a little big of laundry ever day.

Chocolate covered raisins are my favorite thing.


runthelongroad.com January 31, 2011 at 8:19 am

I don't have cute feet but is it possible to be a runner AND have cute feet?!

I love to snack. It's my sneaky way of tricking myself into thinking I'm eating more throughout the day!


Evan Thomas January 31, 2011 at 8:20 am

Once you become a runner, you really forfeit wearing sandals ever again.


Pam January 31, 2011 at 8:23 am

You and are snack twins! I always have some snack ready to devour. I hate to be hungry too!!

Your aunt's dog is huuge! Does he gives piggy back rides to your nieces/nephews?

I do laundry every Mondays and ironing on Tuesdays. After Tuesday we let it pile up and do is all over again. :)

I love chocolate dipped pretzels!!

I eat 2-3 meals a day. Lunch is sometimes a snack. Breakfast and dinner always. I love snacks! apples n peanut butter, or pita chips n hummus!!

love ya xo :)


Mallory January 31, 2011 at 8:33 am

That dog is HUGE!

I try to do laundry twice per week, Sundays and Wednesdays but that doesn't always work!!!

I love pretzels dipped in chocolate! Yum!!

My feet are okay looking now that my one toe healed!

And I snack a lot… usually healthy-ish stuff though!!


Big Daddy Diesel January 31, 2011 at 8:40 am

Thats not a dog, its a HORSE!!!

I do laundry on Sunday as well


TNTcoach Ken January 31, 2011 at 8:49 am

HA, those toes are long, are you sure those aren't fingers? That dog is HUGE…….


Ali @ Ali Runs January 31, 2011 at 8:51 am

I usually do my laundry on the weekends when I go home. I have a coin operated washer/dryer in the basement of my apartment complex but it freaks me out a little PLUS I don't want to pay for laundry.


Shannon January 31, 2011 at 9:04 am

Currently I've been doing laundry around the time I realize I'm about out of running clothes… or lounge pants…

I like raisins or pretzels dipped in chocolate.

I have ugly feet and ugly hands, too.

I snack waaay too much.


Colleen January 31, 2011 at 9:15 am

That dog is awesome!

Is there anything dipped in chocolate that isn't good? :) And yep, I'm a snacker.


Johann January 31, 2011 at 9:15 am

That is a massive dog, lovely! I eat all the time and when I'm in peak training (60+ mile per week) I wake up at 2AM for a snack. My feet are great…two black toe nails, one nail-less toe and various pieces of old skin dangling around where blisters used to be.


Jen January 31, 2011 at 9:16 am

That is one HUGE dog! So nice that you have family close by so that you can do laundry and visits all in one! I WISH that I could do laundry one day of the week. It's at least one load a day around here and usually more. sigh.
I bought dark chocolate covered pomegranates at Costco last time. They were beyond good! And yes, I am a snacker.


Emily January 31, 2011 at 9:28 am

My mom did my laundry until I finally moved out of the state of Vermont. No matter how far I lived from our hometown (college and first real job) she would pick it up and bring it back…or I would drive home and do it there. It was a great excuse for us to see each other on a weekly basis. I full support continuing to spend money on running clothes instead of a washer.

Oreos. Because what's better than chocolate covered in chocolate? Oh wait, dip the chocolate covered oreos in peanut butter. THAT'S WHAT.

My feet could podium in ugliness. I am usually missing at least half a toe nail and they are roughed up from swim/bike/running every second of my free time. Embrace your ugly feet as a sign of what a bad ass awesome rock star runner you are.


Stephanie January 31, 2011 at 9:30 am

No cute feet over here! Laundry is the bane of my existence. I do at least 2 loads daily. If not…over the weekends I'm climbing mountains of it. Wait…I did that this weekend! I love chocolate dipped anything except for bugs.

And are you SURE that's a DOG and not some beast? That thing is HUGE!!!!


Trying To Heal January 31, 2011 at 9:31 am

omg go to trader joes and get their chooclate covered cranberries or/and edamame. TO.DIE.FOR.

you will not regret it. i promise.


skinnyrunner.com January 31, 2011 at 9:38 am

i have the most nast feet. i have athletes foot on 1 foot. you think this would make me hardcore… no, just embarrassed to go get a pedicure.


Tara January 31, 2011 at 9:39 am

I do laundry randomly. It depends on how busy I am.

Anything chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite but I also love chocolate covered acai berries/blueberries.

My feet are actually okay looking…for now.

I eat alllll the time (good thing now it's healthy). My students laugh at me because I have a drawer at work where I always pull food out from!


Kate January 31, 2011 at 9:39 am

Your aunt is awesome! And she is beautiful, so clearly you're related.

I love humungous dogs like that! I want a Saint Bernard, AKA Beethoven. Love those big guys.

My feet used to be pretty a very long time ago. Now they are calloused and blistered and my toenails are not what they used to be. Oh well, I'd rather be a runner than have pretty feet. Right!?


Julia January 31, 2011 at 9:53 am

that dog is soooooo serious!!! wow. i need to meet a dog that big some day.

my feet are also awful and gross but I just try to get over it most days?? at least I can hide them during the billion month long utah winter.

also i love food. i think i eat every three hours (if i make it that long). and if i skip dessert after dinner i freak out.

have a good day :)


Paige January 31, 2011 at 9:53 am

The first picture in this post reminded me of Kristen Wiig from SNL. I think you both have very expressive faces. Too funny!


Bess@Bess Be Fit January 31, 2011 at 9:55 am

Considering I have played soccer my entire life…no, my feet are not attractive. However, they have vastly improved in the year that I have not been playing. Getting pedicures used to be the biggest waste of time and money because I'd likely get stepped on with a cleat the next day and…pedicure ruined. Now my feet are just mediocre, but not beat the f up at least! I have lost too many toenails to count. Lovely, I know.

And chocolate dipped anything is great for me…but I think pretzels and raisins are my fave. or strawberries.

Also I am the 2nd biggest snacker alive after you. I absolutely have to eat every 2 hours or I'll be a grump! No tummy growling allowed here!


Radioactive Runner January 31, 2011 at 9:56 am

Janae, from this post, we sound so much alike haha.. I am known as the "snacking Princess".. that's what my husband calls me because I am ALWAYS eating and can't go without eating for very long haha. I ask my husband if he wants to have a snack with me and he's like "WHAT! YOU JUST ATE!"

I'm glad you enjoyed your Sunday too!! A refreshing way to start out a new week.
Were those homemade chocolate covered mangoes? they sound mighty good.
I'm glad I'm not the only runner with ugly feet… but hey, it's so worth it, isn't it :)


Becky January 31, 2011 at 10:06 am

That dog is huge!! It could eat you in one bite!!

I am so sad I missed the Utah Bloggers event. I ran 7 miles on Saturday and it destroyed me…worst run of my life. I ended up laying on the couch not moving for pretty much the rest of the day. It was awful. I totally missed out on the fun though! Please tell me you will do another one?


Caroline January 31, 2011 at 10:09 am

I LOVE that dog!!!!! wow! we need a picture from the front! I love dogs!!!

Feet: no. when we were young my brother used to say I had Fred Flinstone's feet..do not laugh

Laundry…2 boys in this house…about 3 times a week..YIKES

chocolate and banana = the best, pears also.

a meal…what is that again…I don't rememeber..I eat small portions now of something that is not a meal 4-5 times a day. closest I come to a meal is dinner time: a salad EVERY day. you would die of boredom


carol-ann January 31, 2011 at 10:18 am

love your comment about ugly feet! my mom would always tease me about my feet, I went from dancing to running so needless to say I have never had very attractive feet. :p

also, I've never had anyone think I was prego, but I have had people think I have some kind of eating disorder, I mean I eat all the time, but since I'm pretty active with a fast metabolism I'm still pretty dang thin! ever had problems like this?


A Big Little Life January 31, 2011 at 10:19 am

I want that dog. So pretty! And that soup and baked potato combo looks amazing. Such a great winter dinner.


Runners Fuel January 31, 2011 at 10:20 am

I love huge dogs!!


Regina January 31, 2011 at 10:30 am

that dog- I love big dogs, I want to give him a big hug. He looks awesome!
I usually do a load of laundry every day- with 5 of us, it piles up quickly, so only one load a day, I get it washed, dryed, folded and put away. that way I don't get behind, and it also doesn't sit in baskets or the dryer getting wrinkled.
I love my cute feet!

And can I just say, chocolate covered cinnamon bears? OH. MY. GOD. they are the best!


Dorry January 31, 2011 at 10:39 am

That dog is like a big fluffy marshmallow. I love her! I do laundry about twice a week. Clothes 1 time and then towels & sheets another. I snack throughout the day. It's rare for me to go more than 3 hours without eating something. I love chocolate-covered almonds and pretzels. Hope you have a great Monday pretty lady! xoxo


ihatepickleslikewoah January 31, 2011 at 10:40 am

Love the outfit!!! Howww do u eat a banana in church!?!? Ha!

Laundry, a few times a week. Hate it.

Cute feet? Not possible.

Snacks aaanndd meals :) :)


Health Votes January 31, 2011 at 10:43 am

I will check out your motivation post in the morning. I like to eat frequently as well, and i take a bottle of drinking water with me as well. I don't care what others are thinking about it, i won't change my good habits.

I do take my 3 times a day meals, but along with that i keep taking snacks. There is nothing harm in eating healthy snacks whenever we feel hungry.

P.S. I doubt it is a dog, it looks like a Lion.


ashley & sundance January 31, 2011 at 10:45 am

This post makes me want a dog! What kind of dog does your aunt have? He looks cute! :)

I feel like we do laundry constantly. Ugh.

(PS: you should come Ronna's spin class tonight)


ashley & sundance January 31, 2011 at 10:45 am

ihatepickleslikewoah January 31, 2011 at 10:46 am

O and ps. Last night i dreamed that i paid you $111.00 to teach me how to run!! Curazy!!


Jess @ Blonde Ponytail January 31, 2011 at 10:47 am

First of all, you look hot!! Loving your tights! And, I wanna hug your aunt's doggie!! The big ones are teddy bears.

My feet are atrocious! I am always in flip flops though, so I keep people at a distance-not polite to stare a ugly feet.

chocolate dipped pretzels! Yum!


Jenn January 31, 2011 at 10:55 am

Oh my gosh, You seriously are amazing and I am so sorry you had a rough day the other day. Its actually nice to know your human, and I think Boston is going to be a breeze for you! :)
Your church outfit is soooo cute!! Have I told you how much I love your style! ;)
Chocolate dipped strawberries for sure!
I have the ugliest feet!!
and I do laundry like every other day…haha… How does that happen?!
Awww that dog is AMAZING!! I want to have a huge dog like that one day!!


Carrie January 31, 2011 at 11:00 am

Meals are totally over-rated. I graze all day long. I probably have between 6-8 mini meals any given day.
Chocolate dipped gummy bears? :O I've never had those! Dipped mangoes either – you're so creative with your chocolate consumption! I usually just spoon chipits out of the bag into my mouth.
I only do laundry when I run out of appropriate workout/running gear. Whether or not my workout gear is appropriate depends on how often I shave my legs. ;)
I love your style and your aunt's giant pooch! Have an awesome day!!


spiffykerms January 31, 2011 at 11:16 am

Hey Janae!

I tagged you in a "7 things about me" type of tag. You can see my answers (and other people I've tagged) here: http://www.spiffykerms.com/2011/01/7-things-about-me/

You can also see a few candy wrappers dedicated to you in there as well :)



Nicole January 31, 2011 at 11:32 am

The snacking every two hours is also a must for me. I get cranky if I don't!
Chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite :)
My feet were cute three years ago… now, not so much but it comes with running!


my little celebration January 31, 2011 at 11:35 am

My favorite chocolate dipped something is a blob of peanut butter. That's why I heart Reeses.


Pam January 31, 2011 at 11:36 am

What a beautiful dog!!! A friend of mine has a couple of Great Pyrenees on her farm to guard the goats. They are awesome!

Chocolate covered pretzels are my fave. WHITE chocolate!


Just Run With It January 31, 2011 at 11:44 am

Awww, Oh my gosh that dog is gigantic! What a fluffy guy! Lovelovelove dogs. That's awesome that your fam lives so close so you can get together for dinners (and laundry, major win!). I usually do my laundry every other week (I guess I'm lazy…), I most def do not have cute feet (who honestly does, really?!), and I love me some choc cover pretzels. Mmm, I want some right now…


Nom and Home January 31, 2011 at 11:46 am

that is the most ginormous dog i've ever seen! gorgeous pup… but huge! wowza.

i love your blog! found them through sober southern girl runs, my friend since high school!

great job.


Anna P January 31, 2011 at 11:52 am

Laundry: in a family of 7, laundry is done OFTEN! I do laundry on Mon, Wed, Thursday and Saturday.

Fav chocolate dipped item: probably pretzels, but I am sure there is a whole WORLD of chocolate dipped items I have yet to try, so this is subject to change without notice.

Cute feet? Nope

3 meals a day or snacker: 3 meals a LOTS of snacks. That's the bane of being a stay at home mom, access to food. All. Day.

Your aunt is a marathoner?! you have the BEST family!!
And that dog is AMAZING! I *HEART* big dogs. My favorite is an Irish Wolfhound. What's yours?


ShortSkirts January 31, 2011 at 12:02 pm

That dog is awesome! I bet he's a big softy even though he could eat me!

I have my own washer and dryer so I kind of do it continuously, mostly because I am always going through all my workout gear and try not to re-wear things before washing.

Also totally love your tights those are awesome!


Rose January 31, 2011 at 12:17 pm

I don't think anyone has cute feet. Feet are super functional, but SUPER ugly.


Lindsey January 31, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I snack every 3 hours at least, if not it isnt pretty ;)


Mara... January 31, 2011 at 1:01 pm

love love love chocolate dipped gummy bears!!! Another one that I cave for everytime is chocolate dipped oreos. Last year for Valentine's Day we invited a bunch of my kid's friends over for a chocolate dipping party. Dipped pretzels, oreos, bananas, strawberries, marshmallows and anything else in the pantry. SO fun.

Okay…I digress. I also love to snack!

And have you had the flavored tootsie rolls??? Green apple and vanilla are my favs!!


Reese's Runner January 31, 2011 at 1:09 pm

I like chocolate or peanut butter dipped in chocolate… I too bum other people's washing machines, but since my friends all moved, I'm a laundromat superstar. My feet are nasty too. I actually wince when I see them. Your aunt looks awesome!


drkgood January 31, 2011 at 1:28 pm

First of all, that is one BIG DOG!

I am hungry all the time too. And I get really sick if I don't eat and my blood sugar drops. This morning while I was teaching my stomach was growling SO LOUD. I wish I could have had a snack.

I feel like I am doing laundry all the time. Work clothes, running clothes, kids' uniforms TKD uniforms, ack!

Chocolate and peanut butter. I told you I have a PB problem.

Puh-leez. You've seen my feet on my blog. I have no middle toenails now!! But I only have one super black nail left. What will I do when flip flop season comes back?


Katie January 31, 2011 at 1:32 pm

tootsie rolls are amazing. also, i have 2 dogs, and all i have to say is, i would not want to be the one cleaning up the backyard of that cutie pup! whew!


Stefanie D. January 31, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Shut up. That is not a dog. That is like a person dressed up in a dog suit. FOR REAL?? It seriously looks like a white gorilla or something! Love your tights by the way. :)


the dawn January 31, 2011 at 1:44 pm

i LOVE it! mr. dawn literally packs a snack bag for me because we may have had one too many fights: empty stomach vs. his desire to socialize. turns out i'm happy as a clam with some cheerios in my mouth. yes, i am a toddler.

that dog is amazing. i want two.


Holly January 31, 2011 at 1:52 pm

I always have been a snacker. I like you have to eat at least every 2 hours, if not more! While I don't eat junk food I just eat too much good food so I have to remember not to snack or to drink H2O instead!


LindseyAnn January 31, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Hah! All these years of running, plus 10 of marching band? There is nothing cute about my feet. They're gross, end of story.
I do laundry probably twice a week. Mostly when I notice I'm running low on something, or the hamper is spilling over. I use the coin-op machines in our building, though. :(
I am a TOTAL snacker, and there is always food and/or candy in my purse. It must be the whole putting in mileage thing, I guess! That's hilarious that they automatically assumed you were pregnant, though!
Your family is too cute! I love the matching PJ's!!

LOVE your tights and can I have your dinner, please! Add a side sald and that could be called an ideal meal for me! P.s. I have the ugliest feet ever…I get made fun of so bad=(


Leah @ Why Deprive? January 31, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I always have snacks with me. I mean, just to get me through the day today, along with lunch, I have a banana, a bag of almonds, an apple with pb, and some cheese. I love my snacks. :)

I dont have a washer/dryer either. I do my laundry ever Sunday at my parents house.


The Running Goose January 31, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I do laundry every Saturday, unless we're gone all day, then Sunday is laundry day.

Chocolate covered pretzels are my fav- just the right mix of sweet/salty and crunchiness. yum!

My feet are super ugly. :(

And I'm a snacker. I'm trying to be good about snacking at work and bring only fruit to snack on. But I sure do miss muching on other foods, but at least I get that at home. :)


I RUN LIKE A GIRL January 31, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Sounds like you had an awesome weekend. I'm loving the baked potato bar, yummy! :) And obviously I'm a huge eater/snacker – I'll I do is comment on how delicious the food looks on your blog posts! hahah :)


runaroundaroo January 31, 2011 at 3:23 pm

I love your tights! :)

My feet are icky…especially right now considering both "pointer toenails" are in the process of falling off – the gross process where they are all nasty and purple. Once they fall off it isn't too bad…

I eat whenever I'm hungry and do laundry when I run out of "clean enough to wear" sports bras…


Stacie January 31, 2011 at 3:30 pm

That dog is a beast!

And my question right back to you is: does anyone really have cute feet?


Corey @ the runner's cookie January 31, 2011 at 3:31 pm

I can't go more than a couple hours without a snack either!! I get so grumpy. That's hilarious that everyone thought you were pregnant :)


Lauren @ Hungry Dancer January 31, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Where did you get the choco covered mangoes?? I need those ASAP!! I'm a mango addict!! My feet are disgusting..but I'm a dancer so it kinda goes with the territory!!


Hinano January 31, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Chocolate Mango loooks sooo good! They used to sell dark choc apricots here, but now NOWHERE sells them and it broke my heart because they were so tasty.

I eat lots. I get sooo cranky when I am hungry.

Church people love babies! People always tell me that I will be having a baby soon, or that I look good holding babies.

Churches love breeders.


Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) January 31, 2011 at 3:49 pm

I always have food with me, and eat it everywhere! On the bus, while walking around, during classes- I'm a serious snacker! :D

Urgh you do NOT want to know about my feet! Why do runners get such horrible feet?! Blisters, hard skin bleugh!

Anything chocolate covered is good. Especially chocolate covered chocolate. Mmmm…

By the way, I LOVE your church outfit! Your tights are gorgeous!!


SueM January 31, 2011 at 3:50 pm

that's not a monster but a dog? lol!


XLMIC January 31, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Laundry every day… 4 kids and a husband w/ a physical job.

Chocolate-covered blueberries were doing it for me last I checked ;-)

I used to have really pretty feet… for real. But about a year ago I started getting this gross thing called chilblains.

I graze all day if I can.

And I LOVE that dog! Is it a Pyrenees?


All Things Jaime January 31, 2011 at 4:13 pm

That dog is ridiculously huge!! I do laundry on the weekends, too! It's not too bad doing laundry for two … but, we both have lots of dirty clothes by the end of the week (work, regular clothes and gym clothes).


Cheryl January 31, 2011 at 4:28 pm

That dog is HUGE!!!

I do 7 mini meals a day to keep the old metabolism in high gear! About 1600 cals total now that I;m dieting for competition offseason is about 2000 cals

Morden Chocolate Covered Ju Jubes…..try them …they come from my home town and MUST be mordens brand , generic ones suck

LOve your leggings!!


Allison January 31, 2011 at 4:49 pm

You've gotta post a pic of that dog's face. I've never seen anything so big and gorgeous. What kind of dog is that?


ILoveRunning January 31, 2011 at 4:56 pm

I love your blog! You inspired me to make one, too. I feel like we are twins! Visit me at http://runningwithcorgs.blogspot.com/ . I love reading your posts every day!


Julie D. January 31, 2011 at 5:52 pm

That dog is the biggest dog I have ever seen! I'm going to have to get ahold of those chocolate covered mangoes!!


Jamie January 31, 2011 at 6:22 pm

If anyone saw the inside of my purse they'd think I have a toddler… I always have snacks! I never leave the house without Cheerios and a banana. :)

And chocolate covered pretzels are my fave!


Holley January 31, 2011 at 6:56 pm

I am a huge snacker as well (named my blog after my love for snacking, hah!) My coworkers probably think I'm insane. I always bring a huge bag of food and take up way too much of the fridge and I'm always in the kitchen…


J January 31, 2011 at 7:10 pm

The reason it took me so long to respond to these posts is because I was busy eating sour patch kids and making PB cookies. BEST Combo ever is Sour patch kids with fresh out of the oven Peanut butter cookies!!

Well since I live at home I hardly do laundry – my mom wont let me get near the washer or dryer. When I lived in an apartment I would do it every three days or so. I would try not to let it stack up. brian always does laundry on Sunday and it bothers me!


lolzthatswim January 31, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I do real girl clothes laundry once every two weeks and runners laundry once a week.

Chocolate covered fruit is the way to go. Seriously.


nicolecooks January 31, 2011 at 8:56 pm

My feet are totally fugly, so I feel you haha. :)

your tights are amaaaaazing I am so jealous!

and that is seirously a huuge dog.



Melissa January 31, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Wow, and I thought my boyfriend's parent's bloodhounds were big!

I am such a snacker. I'll sometimes have a preemtive snack just to avoid the hungry feeling. But when I'm at work I have a few set opportunities to snack and sometimes I just go for it!


movesnmunchies February 1, 2011 at 2:07 am

Food Police February 1, 2011 at 8:09 am

Chocolate mangos sound so amazing…i think anything dipped in chocolate is tasty. I have never tried chocolate gummy bears though…did you make it yourself?


Alexis February 1, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Runners' feet are always ugly. My family makes fun of my toes haha.

Cute church outfit!


the hoppe pad February 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm

I love that freakin' dog! What kind is it? So cute! If I had lots of money…I would get a bunch of dogs!


Jessica Miller February 2, 2011 at 4:10 pm

I love your tights!!!


Katie S June 9, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Yes, I went back to the beginning and am posting on your blog! I’ve only been reading for about two weeks now. Can we say obsessed??
I do my laundry on Sunday’s too!
I love chocolate dipped strawberries!
My feet are pretty bad. I’ve inherited bunions from my family. Makes running interesting!
I’m a snacker!!!! My husband is always teasing me. He asked me are you afraid you will get hungry? And my answer was duh!!
