For A Rough Day

June 30, 2011 · 44 comments

This post was inspired by a few ladies who were having off days… kinda like the day I’m having today. I woke up with an obscenely sore throat, which typically means I’ll be seeing a nice sinus infection or head cold soon. Obviously, training for a marathon and feeling sick don’t go well together, which […]


As everyone’s gotta know by now, I’m feeling pretty baller about my early-morning workouts these days. For a “non-morning person,” I’ve been surprisingly happy to pop out of bed at 6 a.m. to bang out a few miles on the treadmill before work. this is where I like to be at 6 a.m. Today, as […]


Check Me Out.

Over at Holly’s blog at Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices (a woman after my own heart). My guest post for her today is a little “Tips for a Successful Blog.” I know this topic has been touched on, but I thought I could add my two cents in, too. 🙂 This pretty lady just got […]


I’m so glad I planned to get up this morning around 6:30 for a run. Cause if I wasn’t going to bed early, the competitive edge in me would have come out last night. And I most definitely would have dominated a drinking game made from the phrases “dot dot dot,” “Bentley,” and “closure.” If […]


Obviously, I think it’s pretty great when people tell me I’m amazing. go ahead. tell me again. Which is why when Lindsey from Happy or Hungry passed me the Amazing Blogger Award, she became my new favorite. I am all over this. Remember in middle school (okay, maybe high school, too) when we’d all forward […]


What is the Life of bLyss coming to? I just woke up at 6 a.m. And I got out the door. And I ran. And nothing terrible happened. I feel like I’m in the twilight zone. Seriously, ask anybody you know. I can stay up until 4 a.m. no problem, but waking up early has […]

Jenn, I know you are peeing your pants of excitement. I’ve been proactive enough to photograph enough food in my day to participate in the coveted “What I Ate Wednesday.” That’s the thing. I don’t report my eats all the time because I honestly don’t have the energy to make it look pretty enough. And […]


Sunday called for my first hill run for marathon training. Let me tell you, I was psyched to hit that treadmill on an incline. …Can you feel the sarcasm? You see, Virginia Beach is a joke when it comes to hill runs. The land is completely flat almost everywhere, and to run hills outside, I’d […]


Doggone It.

  In case you didn’t hear, last night I was crowned Miss USA. Oh wait, that’s not me, is it? Well, she was one of my favorites. Her name is Alyssa, and she does look like Ariel. So… job well done, judges. By the way, I think my sister wore that dress to prom in […]


Who’s Ya Daddy?

This one’s mine. Daddy, I still think you’re the smartest man in the world. I still love watching baseball with you. I still know I could have never gotten A’s in math without you. I still blame you for my obnoxiously long fingers and big feet. I still listen to my “DAD’S FEEL BETTER FAST” […]
