Fun Size Weekend!

Well, it looks like we weren't the only ones having fun at a preview this weekend!  The star of FUN SIZE, Victoria Justice, was hanging out at Mall of America with many others getting a sneak peak at the movie.  I let my almost 7yo know this and she wanted to meet her.  She is a huge fan of the Nickelodeon show Victorious.

FUN SIZE star Victoria Justice at the Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota on October 20th, 2012.

We laughed quite a bit during the movie, I just hope she didn't pick up on any of the pranks Albert was doing!  She thought is was hilarious when Fuzzy was running down the street distracting the cops.  Although, my favorite was during the credits when Albert let on that he was pranking his mother for the past 6 months... I won't give away what he was doing but I truly found it entertaining.  

It did hit a nerve during the movie as a parent - paranoia about losing one of my kids on Halloween.  So many kids in the same costume and they run around without paying attention.  Thank you FUN SIZE for making me see there could be humor in it!!

Panic mode?

Maybe.  Yes... I am starting to get nervous.  The Tough Mudder is this Sunday @Pocono Manor where it will be COLD.  I think that is the one thing that worries me the most, for the past few weeks I have been obsessed with the weather.  It has ranged from 65 to 45 and as of right now it is looking like a sunny (but yet chilly) 50 high.  Of course at 9:40am it will not be 50!!

Will the running through fire warm me up?? I doubt it and it is pretty far into the race.  Slightly concerned with my lungs going through here!

I have my death waiver all printed and signed.  Bring it... :-)

Stupid or dedicated?!

I just came in from a 2.5 mile run in the cold rain... My legs are still numb (you can see how red the are in the pic). The hot shower I took still hasn't warmed me. This feels AMAZING!!!

The Tough Mudder is in 1 week... Yes, 1 short week and I have started I panic that I am not ready. I've been training in my Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSports for the past 4 months and this week I got scared about my toes. :-) so, in my true nature I decided to buy a pair of New Balance Minimus Friday night. Thinking there is a little more traction and less of a chance of breaking a toe or 10.

They rub the back of my heel pretty on my left foot but other than that they are perfect. Now I just need to buy some Under Armour Cold Gear pants this week and I will be all set.

Wow, this is great! Ryan's girlfriend made him Nutella Mocha Hazelnut Almond Cupcakes for his birthday and they are so moist and tasty... Screw my healthy eating. Two please.

Not going to get me down

This has been the week from hell at my house.  All 3 of us are sick from one thing or another.  Yesterday I thought I had bad allergies but today I am questioning that.  The mucus is still flowing but I feel great other wise. 

I have to admit that I have been lazy today and not done anything towards training so I am sure I'll be up late again tonight putting in the work. 

On the path to kicking this out of my system I have been drinking a green tea with a huge spoon of Manuka Honey in it.  From everything I have read it should help me recover from this funkiness.  I'm also putting the Honey on Conor's wound on his face, it appears to have great healing properties because he looks so much better!  No matter what he is cure little dude but hopefully this will prevent an ugly scar.

I'm tempted to run outside right now... looks beautiful with the little bit of snow we have.  Have a feeling that my feet would freeze with my Vibram Fivefinger on though.  :-)

Wordless Wednesday

Life is constantly changing.  I lived in Brooklyn in the early/mid 90's near this beautiful bridge.  I remember rollerblading and running along the path nearly every day during the spring and summer... Today I am finally getting back into fitness and I'd like to revisit that path again.  I took this picture nearly a year ago driving through, it is time to stop and smell the roses again.

Should I stay or should I go?

I want to keep track of my workouts and progress and I'm not sure if I want to start a new blog or keep it all here.  This started out about the kids and their hearing loss but then migrated to technology and now tech & fitness? I guess it truly is a reflection of me... life is always changing and improving. 

2012 will be a year of change for me.  Not that there was anything wrong with me before but I want to be my optimal self this year -- physically and mentally.

Join me on my journey?

I've been too angry, sad and lost to really post anything in a long time.  I'm still not in a great position but life is always going to be a battle.  No matter what happens I will always get back up and jump into the fight. 

Happy New Year.  I believe this will somehow be a good year...
