Mother’s Day has really caught me off guard this year. I have some shopping to do.
And now as an added touch, I can personalize a commercial for the moms in my life. Have you seen those AT&T “it’s not complicated” commercials with the kids saying what’s faster and better. Well for Mother’s day AT&T has made one like that for all the mommies. Those kids are so darn cute. You can personalize a special greeting at the end of the commercial wishing the mom in your life a Happy Mother’s Day.
How about something more? AT&T has offered to giveaway a HTC First phone to one lucky Fairy Healthy Life reader! This would make a great mothers day gift or maybe a gift for yourself. You deserve it. And no, you don’t need to be a mom to enter.
Sunday was spent enjoying the rest for my body and attending a baby shower for a friend.
It’s been too long since I’ve had a reason to dress up. I was living in running and yoga clothes for the past 3 months. I do love them, but it’s nice to feel pretty sometimes.
The navy shower was at a Mexican restaurant, so I was already worried about what I would eat. I knew it wasn’t going to be healthy, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The food didn’t look too greasy so I went for it. I was pretty hungry.
I wasn’t very full and it made me realize why I was overweight when I ate like that. All I was eating was empty calories. I was missing my whole grains, filling vegetables and protein.
Even though I didn’t eat it, I thought this cupcake was so adorable not to share. I took it home to my girls. They just didn’t like there was a surprise pineapple filling in the middle.
And now for the winner of the blogiversary giveaway…
Congratulations Helen! E-mail me your info to fkabarit07(at)gmail(dot)com
Thank you all for entering and sharing your advice and thoughts with me.
I had a great workout yesterday morning. Usually I make Saturday my rest day, but since I took all of this past week to rest after the half marathon I was itching for a good workout. Chloe had tutoring at school for 2 hours and I wanted to take advantage of that time. So instead of waiting for her at home doing much of nothing, I decided to go to the gym to lift some weights I need to focus more on building my upper body strength.
I felt so great after that, I even went to the park to run 3 miles. The weather was sunny and around 58 degrees or perfect! My hip is feeling good and so is my energy. I’m so glad I’m learning to listen to my body. It’s just as important as good nutrition, sleep and getting enough exercise. Don’t ignore your body.
It gave me some time to think about a race I want to run next weekend. It’s the Jack Rabbit Classic in the Franklin Mountains. It is going to be gorgeous but it is a trail run and I’m not really a trail runner. There is a 3.5 or 7 mile option. I’m sort of leaning towards the 3.5 but still not sure. I have some more thinking to do.
Thank you for your suggestions on my GIVEAWAY blogiversary post. I already have some post ideas stirring in my head. If you haven’t read it, there’s still time to enter the giveaway. It ends tonight. Enter here: Blogiversary Giveaway
Yesterday I was a complete bum. I didn’t comb my hair and get dressed till 3 p.m. And if we didn’t have a an appointment to do our taxes I probably wouldn’t have gotten dressed at all! I don’t think I’ve ever been as sore as I was yesterday. From my hips to my toes, every muscle struggled to move. I don’t know how someone can feel so strong and weak at the same time. What a crazy feeling. Is it weird that I loved it though?? I love the feeling of knowing I pushed my hardest.
I’m spending the whole week recovering. I can’t wait to get back to the yoga challenges on Instagram. I’m also already wondering what races are coming up that I can participate in. It never ends, I tell you!!
Now let’s get to the giveaway!! It’s nothing complicated and not a big giveaway but it’s my way of thanking you, my readers for always supporting me, reading my blog and becoming my friends. I thank YOU. I’ll probably also bake something special for the winner…
