Today is a packing day for me, so I started packing and stopped to read some blogs this morning and the new Health magazine, which I love behind Shape and Fitness! I also had a key lime larabar!
This is my apartment in the middle of the mess, such a disaster!
Taking down all my pictures and packing books!
- mini peanut butter cups
- golden raisins
- pumpkin seeds
I'm now trying to obtain my shot records and they might have lost them, pack more and keep the stress sown, which has become harder and harder!
How do you manage your stress?

First things first my 5K this morning was awesome, cold though: 45 degrees:(
I managed to get under 24 minutes though which is a new PR for me. I chalk this up to my banana and almond butter for breakfast combo!
After the race I chaged for the day into my new jeans and my race t-shirt with my hubby of course!
Next we walked over to the DNR building to see the fishies!
The I saw this and HAD to take a picture: BIG FAT BACON! I can't believe people actually buy this!
My second food of the day: Cheese Curds with mustard, although I prefer mine with pizza sauce!
And the famous Corn Roast! My mom grew up with the owner so every year is more free corn and you can smell the roasting for miles, so fun to watch them cook it even!
Everyday there is a parade and since it's U of Minnesota day: Enter cheerleaders, since I used to be one in high school I love watching them and have always wanted to continue on with cheering! Did you also know that the University of Minnesota had the first cheerleaders EVER!
The cute little sheep, one was born 55 minutes before we came! Same b-day as me!

These things are so huge and my eyes were bigger than my stomach so I only ate like half, the insides of course!

Also Erica told me I could add more than 5 photos just not at the same time, so that makes me excited! Thanks, Erica!
Breakfast was a bowl of cinnamon puffins cereal and milk that I ate while driving and shifting in traffic:) Opps, usually I make fun of those people that do a million things in a car while they should be driving, but I had no time this morning so I challenged myself and only ate half of the bowl because driving was a little more important!
I decided to have a 2 installment lunch because I sampled foodsall day at work, working in a deli is dangerous! Taco Dip, Special K bars, every kind of cheese and meat, fruit and veggie trays. I had only a couple of each. I also had a bowl of nut mix on break:
- golden raisens
- slivered almonds
- TJ's mini peanut butter cups
- pumpkin seeds
Did anyone else hear about the Sigg controversy. You should read the article and if you bought one before August 2008, get a new one! I still have to check mine, but I can't believe I threw away a couple Nalgenes only to find out Sigg is the same and they tried to hide it.
Just a little FYI for the day!
When I got home it was kind of warm so I tried a new combo. Carrot Juice + Mango
It was different but good, I only tried a teeny bit at first to see if I would like it, and then I made more!
So I'm off to relax and wait for the hubby to get home, then we are off to Olive Garden for a dinner out with friends from Wisconsin!
What are your last Friday in August plans?

I don't mind either way I just want to make sure everyone is able to read every post and comment when they want and also blogger only lets me put 5 pictures per post!
Onto today, I went home did laundry, walked a lot outside and inside, made homemade salsa (our family is salsa kings, everyone asks for it every year), and took some picture of where I grew up!
This is my house where I grew up. We built it in 1996, and there's a huge park/pond in back and I just love the look!
This was my room in J.H. and H.S., yes it's lime green! It's changed a little because I don't live here anymore, but my curio cabinet in the corner is always a mainstay. It was the first piece of furniture my dad made me and it houses all my rocky horses and my waterford crystal piece from the actual factory in Ireland. This is my favorite thing, the treadmill, which has gotten more use in the past 5 years than most roads get:) Since we live in MN, running in negative, windy, snowy weather sometimes calls for this with a movie!
I ate them with our homemade SUPER SPICY salsa, made with all veggies from my dad's garden! I got to bring some home for the hubby, so it will be gone before I know it now!
Todat was great going home and I stayed true to my CHALLENGE by not running and enjoying the company!
P.S. Rhodeygirltests is having a giveaway featuring something from her amazing honeymoon!
I'm at home doing laundry and thinking about all that I have to get done in the next week!
But first the weekend, which brings on WEEKEND CHALLENGE #2, which is going to be to relax and to enjoy this last weekend in Minneapolis. I have a really had time sometimes not thinking about running 24/7 and feeling guilty when I'm not perfect. So I'm going to try and let go!
My weekend includes:
- Indian dinner with friends from Wisconsin
- Annual girls shopping day @ Albertville Premium Outlets with my mom, my mother in law, my husbands grandma, 2 aunts and maybe a cousin! I look forward to this every year, especially the Coach outlet store, even though I already own 3 Coach purses, but I never pay full price!
- Minnesota State Fair 5K. This is the first 5K I ever did 5 years ago and it is by far my favorite one ever!
- Walk around and enjoy the Minnesota State Fair with my family! If you didn't already know this is the 2nd largest state fair in the country and I go every year if not twice a year! My mom also know lots of venders so we get a lot of free food, like Corn Roast corn, cheese curds, root beer, onion rings, and we used to get to go down the GIANT SLIDE for free too!
Do you collect things? I collect purses and rocky horses!
What's your favorite thing about a State or County Fair? Yummy food and people watching!
Be back tonight with tour of my growing up and foods!

Question #1: How is my brother doing?
My brother says he feels okay now, but still weak. He is still working full and is going back to college soon full time and has a loaded schedule. I try to reiterate to my family and him that this is serious and rest is necessary. Hopefully energy comes back soon for him though!
Question # 2: Cashew larabar like?
Nope, just not my kind:( I like my key lime larabars!
Questions # 3: Kiwi with skin?
Absolutely not! I like my kiwis naked!
Anymore ?'s I didn't answer or more you want answered you can always e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
After the last post I went for an 8 mile run, no Nike + iPod so just guessing!
I then knew the hubby wanter pizza again so I try and make him top it with healthier options like grape tomotoes, yellow peppers, squash and chicken. So instead of me having pizza, I just put all the toppings in a bowl, topped it with cheese and melted it in the microwave!
With some ranch dressing on top!
And this is my fuel for tackling the laundry/packing!
Breakfast was quick with 2 kiwis and some blueberries:
I then worked from 7-2pm. For lunch I had some leftovers and my favorite m &m's, great stress reliever!
