Thoughtless Thursday?

My head is feeling a little ADD this week. I have lots to say but can't sit still long enough to put each one down in an individual post.  So here is a random bloggie post for today. :-)

The BF & I were playing around with the different settings on the DLSR camera. I think its overly complicated and since I am pretty lazy, too much work. I'm happy with a point and shoot.




3 of the best spooky-type pictures were got using the different settings. Our tripod is in storage so using the long exposure was pretty much worthless.

I am trying to win (or at least get 2nd place) on two different mileage contests this month. It might be a little crazy, but I am aiming for over 200 miles this month. I think personally its DOABLE for me. I probably won't be breaking any PRs ~BUT~ while training for my 50K, the more miles I did, the faster I got without doing any additional speedwork. So we will see. I feel running is such a personal experiment during the whole course of your running "career" so I am open to doing some things different. 

One of the mileage contests is here and you can join in!

During my run today, the BF stopped me and made me flip some tires we came across. I guess this is the benefit of living in a small farm town because these tires are everywhere - and they make me very happy.

There was a variety of tires available.


Tires are hard to flip when you got your can of Mike's Hard Lemonade in one hand. #redneck

When he did flip that one above, he made it look way too easy! I tried it and was like WTF. It was so heavy!


This one was nearly a perfect size!

  




I don't know how good my form is. I thought I was squating down low but maybe I could have gone a little lower in the pics. But that one tire was really heavy. Like I said, the BF made it look so effortless. But man, it was solid and heavy. The real tire flipping deal right there! <3 it!

I really love my coffee pot. It got a bath with both the cleaning tablets and the decalcification tablets and a new water filter. I have the Starbucks Aria blend in it I need to use up, which I am not a fan of. But even a coffee blend that I am not a fan of, this machine can make it taste ok.

Totes recommend!

During my 6.5 mile run today, we found a few cans and scrap bits and even money on the ground! $0.16! I got "paid" to run today. ;-)


The black bag above had new dvd remotes in it that I put on eBay.


There were a few 30 ot 6 casings and a sewing bobbin. Things that are popular in small town Idaho and NOT popular in big city Boise!

Do you have any DSLR camera advice? Do you change the settings and use photoshop or do you prefer point and shoot? Are you joining me in a mileage contest or are you doing some other fun Holiday "Bootie Buster" contest? Do you ever flip tires during cross training? What is your favorite cross training?

PS. I will be having a giveaway soon! Perfect for Winter training! Stay tuned!

  1. Thanks for sharing the mileage challenge! Good luck on hitting 200. I did that once this year and pretty much felt like all I was doing was running LOL.

    1. I'm looking at my schedule and seeing how many miles I have to run. It has been a goal for a long time to be comfortable with running 10 miles everyday!

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
