It’s here finally, Friday! Since my mind can’t seem to focus on one subject right now, let’s do a Fun Facts Friday!
Fact #1 – Google Reader is shutting down in July. If you read a lot of blogs like I do, it’s nice to have a centrally located site to organize all of them. Katy Widrick did a great post on the some of the alternatives. I’ve been playing around with Bloglovin’ and Feedly (two of the most talked about alternatives). I’m still on the fence but so far I’m liking Feedly more. It’s a little bit more visually appealing. You could always subscribe to get my posts by email (see the side bar to sign up) – just saying! Does anyone else have recommendations?
Fact #2 – I’m sick of the treadmill.
The lovely winter storm on Tuesday left over a foot of fresh snow for us which means lots of icy sidewalks and roads. Plus, it’s just so stinkin’ dark at 4:30 a.m. that I haven’t had the balls to run outside by myself. I really need to find another running buddy asap! My week day mileage is creeping up. Gone are the days of 5 or 6 miles. Now it’s 7 or 8. The longest I’ve ever run on the treadmill was 7 miles and it is painfully boring. In the past, all I’ve needed was a great Pandora station to get me through it. This week I started watching shows On Demand. It’s helped but I don’t want to have to do 8 miles. I can’t. I won’t. Maybe I can switch to running in the evening but I’m usually not at my best then. I’m ready for bed!
Fact #3 – If all 600 muscles in your body pulled in the same direction, you could lift 25 tons. Pretty cool, huh?
Fact #4 – Has anyone returned their Lululemon see through pants? I’m still wearing mine – hope no one was offended in class Wednesday night. 😉
Fact #5 – I’m a bag lady. It seems like I am always carrying at least two big bags of gear around with me. On days that I go into work and bring the kids to daycare, it’s really bad. I’ve got my purse (which is really like a suitcase), their bag full of snow pants, boots, and other winter gear, my lunch bag and my gym bag. It’s no wonder I don’t have a dislocated shoulder.
On days when I don’t need my whole purse, I’ve been using the On-The-Go Pouch for stashing some cash, my driver’s license, a credit card and lip balm and throwing it in my gym bag. It’s saved my shoulders from lugging one more big bag around.
The nice people at Active Accessories offered to give one lucky Happy Fit Mama reader their own On-The-Go Accessory Pouch!
