Here’s my pic from last week at 10 weeks. I’m now 11 weeks and growing. I’m still nauseous a lot, hoping that it will get better soon! I got to see little Peanut on an ultrasound last week, that baby was doing somersaults. Maybe that’s what’s causing my nausea lol!
I know I have been MIA lately. I found out that I’m almost 7 weeks pregnant! I’m so excited! This is a huge change for us, but definitely for the better. This “morning” sickness is lasting all day long so I haven’t been able to run . Keeping fluids and food down seems to be a chore.
I am working on some reviews and giveaways that all of you will certainly love!
What advice do you have for me to make this sickness better?
I am a dirty girl! I love mud runs! I had the time of my life sharing this experience with a good friend and so many other women! There is just something so inspiring about women complimenting other women and even helping them throughout the whole course!
Our heat started at 10am, we were there super early so we snuck in with the 9:15am ladies, they needed a few extras since their heat was so small. I helped the DJ countdown the last 5 seconds and we were off. Kate and I started up the HUGE ski slope hill to the first obstacle which was the bubble house. The bubbles were from floor to ceiling and we ran through them. That was really cool! Then we continued through some more large hills and got the the “social media net”. Which was a huge cargo net that you had to climb up, over the top, and then back down the other side. I’m so glad Kate was there to help get me through it! I froze when I was almost at the top because I realized how high up I was. It was scary but I did it! Thank you Kate!!!! We continued through the rest of the course winding up and down the hills. There were quite a few more obstacles along the way but I don’t wanna give away all of the surprises to those of you that are gonna do it with me next year!! **hint hint wink wink*
We got to the final mud pit that we had to crawl through to get to the finish line. Kate and I jumped in and crawl on our hands and knees out of the pit! We were covered in mud and had huge beaming smiles as we crossed the finish line and received our medals that we earned!
Off to the showers we go, I thought. They only had a huge area with hoses and a changing tent. All of the girls helped hose one another off enough so that we could go change in the tent. Not quite sure why they didn’t have showers, lots of people were wondering the same thing. I did, however, understand why my dogs hate getting a bath in hose water, IT IS COLD!!
Once we were changed we got something to eat and sat down to enjoy the live entertainment. We had a blast and hope to see even more ladies next year!!

Disclosure: I was provided this product in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way. The opinions stated here are my own.
I decided that since my best sweat sessions recently have been during Crossfit workouts, that should be the workout that puts Handana to the test. I was absolutely thrilled with how great the Handana worked! I had sweat pouring down my face and neck, automatically I used my hand to wipe it away. The Handana was on that hand and wicked the sweat right off of my face and neck as I wiped it across. The Handana fit my hand like a perfect glove! It is made of Lycra and is breathable. I feel like this product is a must-have for every runner, Crossfitter and athlete! After my Crossfit workout, I took off for a run, and it was great that I didn’t have to hold a sweat towel or put something around my head to keep the sweat from rolling. The Handana went with me and I didn’t feel like it was even there!

Handana’s manifesto is to inspire others to cross their finish line no matter where it is in life and to empower others along the way. The true passion behind the Handana is to raise awareness of SJS. Handana was created by Katie Niemeyer as a solution to inefficient cotton sports wristbands she wrapped around her hands to wipe away sweat and nasal drip while running.
As a SJS survivor, her eyes were very sensitive, and she found it difficult to focus on training for her first marathon while sweat was dripping into and burning her eyes. Hats, headbands and sweatbands helped, but in the Texas heat, sweat still dripped causing extreme pain and providing an excuse to stop her workouts. With the marathon a few months away, she needed a solution.
That’s when Handana was born. Her idea was to create a high performance, fashionable wrist sweatband for running and sports that wraps around your hand allowing you to use both sides of your Handana hand to wipe sweat from your neck or forehand.
You can purchase your Handana at www.myhandana.com.
I was wanting to try the little beer that everyone talks about but no one had a recipe that didn’t use high calorie whipping cream so I came up with my own recipe:
Skinny Little Beer
1 shot of Licor 43
Dash of vanilla almond milk
Place shot of Licor 43 into glass then slowly pour milk on top so that it doesn’t mix together. This is absolutely decadent and low calorie!!

The other day, someone whom I adore made mention to someone else how, 'they didn't like cops', because they get to do things the rest of us are not privileged to do only because they're the law.
