Taco Salad


I know, I know I spend a lot of time with my family.  I am a mama's girl, what can I say.  I don't feel like growing up for at least five more years and I am by far my parent's favorite child.

My brother from Kentucky is in town, so that means food, ice cream and playing weird games to prove who has the most testosterone in the family.


We had taco salad.


And Birthday Cake ice cream.  It doesn't get better than that.

The only thing better than this is when my bro-in-law puts ice cream and a cupcake in a blender to make a cup-shake.


Oh, and the best thing today: I got a package from LAURA, my bff blogger.  A McDonald's gift card for my ice cream cone addiction, favorite candies and the sweetest card ever.  I want to be her.  She is beautiful, a very talented photographer and decorator and my healthy living example.


Spin playlist from my class tonight:

1.  We R Who We R by Keisha: Warm-up

2. Don't Go by Dupri- Jumps Heavy Tension

3. Radar by BRITNEY SPEARS: Isolation, sprint repeat.

4. Poker Face by Lady Gaga: to come.

5. Uprising by The Muse:  Hill climb in the saddle and out of saddle for chorus double time

6. Sober by Pink: Max tension and isolations

7. Bleed America by Jimmy Eat World: Sprints

8. Club Can't Handle Me by Flo RIda:  Arm swings (really gets the heart rate up) and superman's

9. Hallelujah by Paramore: Sprints, heavy tension

10. California Gurls by Katy Pery:  Jumps, low tension

11.  Infinity by Guru Josh:  Figure eight, work on each leg separately

12. Like a G6 by Far East Movement:  I don't even remember...I go crazy happy when this song comes on.

13. Hard by Rhianna:  Heavy tension saddle, low tension sprint out of saddle.  Repeat 3 times.

14. I May Know the Word by Natalie Merchant: Cool-down


Say your prayers today (don't worry I took the picture before she started saying the prayer, I am not going to be struck by lightening anytime soon).

She made sure to "bless all the babies in the world" tonight.  She thinks she is a lot older than she is.

How many brothers and sisters to you have?

-I have 3 brothers and 1 sister....I am the baby in the family if you can't tell.

Number one favorite ice-cream.

-Birthday cake and vanilla (so that I can put a wide variety of toppings on top like gummy bears and circus animals)

What is your Thursday work-out?

Chocolate chip cookie dough for me ;)

At December 16, 2010 at 5:28 AM , Blogger ms. caboo said...

I've got 4 sisters and 3 brothers and I think 27 nieces and nephews. Seriously. I've lost count.

My Thursday workout was shoveling the snow this morning before work! And running around the bookstore for 8 hours today--fun fun.

Favorite ice cream: strawberry.

I have one sister and ... seven brothers! And I micro-manage their lives, no matter how old we all get.
I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite ice cream, but I am crowding coffee, mint chocolate chip, and pistachio up on the pedestal.

How many brothers and sisters to you have?
Shout out to the babies in the fam! me too. Two older brothers. One sis in law.

Number one favorite ice-cream.
This is tough. Cake batter and cookie dough. Depends on the mood. Not a chocolate fan. Mine has to have 'stuff' in it.

What is your Thursday work-out?
Just finished: 65 HIIT on the stairmill, 5x5 lifting on the leggies. Breakfast now. Please.

I have 2 younger sisters. My mom is also one of my best friend's godmother, so I consider her my god-sister.

Basically any Ben & Jerry's flavor, especially coconut 7 layer bar. I love that there's a B & Js store on my campus that I can spend my meal points at bahah.

At December 16, 2010 at 5:51 AM , Blogger TNTcoach Ken said...

Hmmmmmmmmm, Taco Salad. I have to brave the elements today and run outside, not sure of the distance because of the icy conditions.

At December 16, 2010 at 5:58 AM , Blogger J said...

I am only child. Kind of stinks. Birthday cake ice cream is one of my favorites too but I just never eat it enough. Thursday workout would be cross training at the gym but I really want to run!!!

At December 16, 2010 at 6:14 AM , Blogger Jody, RD said...

I am the middle child between two brothers.

Anything chocolate and peanut butter.

45 minute cardio conditioning class plus 15 minute express yoga.

At December 16, 2010 at 6:22 AM , Blogger Big Daddy Diesel said...

- I am the oldest, I have one bro

- BANANA SPLIT!!!!!!! I mean, getting my daily serving of fruits with ice cream is pure genious in my opinion

- Tonight, sighhh, plyometrics, weights (shoulders and arms) dreadmill HIIT and cool down on the trainer, its gonna be a long night

i'm glad to see that ke$ha song on the playlist. it was stuck in my head all day yesterday!

i have 4 sisters and 1 brother (i'm the oldest of all), mocha chip, hopefully i can get my butt out the door in 6 minutes for an 8 miler!

All your food looks so good!

At December 16, 2010 at 6:33 AM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

I have an older sister and a younger brother. I like being the middle child, I'm never the one in trouble :).

I'm not working out today, I haven't had a rest day in forever and I'm travelling all day.

btw, I posted a visual of the banana bread recipe I sent you. Check it out!

At December 16, 2010 at 6:51 AM , Blogger LindseyAnn said...

Awww, that photo is too cute!
I'm the oldest--I have a younger sister and a younger brother.
My all-time, all-time favorite is peppermint stick. My other favorite is a regional one called Amaretto Cherry Mackinac Island Fudge. Basically, think Amaretto-Cherry ice cream with GIGANTIC fudge pieces. It is nothing short of amazing.
I'm hoping for a 4 mile tempo run today. *fingers crossed* I'm also going to have to fit some yoga in as well, my muscles are SUPER tight.
I'm jealous that you can see your family so often! It always looks like you have so much fun. Mine is so far away, I see them on holidays and that's about it. :(

At December 16, 2010 at 6:51 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have a younger sister.
My favorite ice cream flavors are Edy's Double Fudge Brownie and Mocha Almond Fudge, and basically anything else that has "fudge" in it. Oh and mint choc chip too! Just not vanilla....=P

I have a younger brother. I call him "lil' bro", but the irony comes from the fact that he's 6'7. So he's hardly "lil'". :)

Taco salad is one of my favorites.
Or anything with salsa. I'm not picky.

At December 16, 2010 at 6:53 AM , Blogger Danielle said...

I have one older sister. Thank goodness. I'm not good at sharing attention. : )

My favorite ice cream would be Cheesecake with strawberrys in a sprinkle cone from Marble Slab. DELICIOUS.

At December 16, 2010 at 6:57 AM , Blogger Stephanie said...

Favorite ice cream of all time would have to be Ben & Jerry's cherry garcia- yum! Haven't had it in forever, it gets dangerous when I do!

I feel like every week a new sibling appeared on the blog, good to finally have the family head count. How is it being the youngest? I am the opposite, oldest with 4 younger siblings- my youngest sister loves being the baby- must be something to it!

At December 16, 2010 at 7:04 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

What a cute picture of her getting ready to pray! Adorable!!!

I have 4 younger sisters and a younger brother due in January. Yup, that's right. I am 27, the next is 21, then 7, 5, and 3. (My Dad got remarried and they had the little ones). I love being a big sister. The 7 year old is my mini-me.

Favorite ice cream... boy, that's tough. I'll have to go with Mint Chocolate Chip from Baskin Robbins.

Thursday workout WILL be done tonight after work so around 7:30. I WILL RUN.

At December 16, 2010 at 7:18 AM , Blogger Christina said...

This post made me hungry!!

I have one brother.

Favorite ice cream? Blue Bell Cookies & Cream! I'm also a fan of vanilla, just so I can enjoy my toppings!

Workout=Insanity + run. After all these Christmas goodies I've been eating, I crave my workouts even more right now! :)

At December 16, 2010 at 7:20 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have one sister, I'm the baby. My favorite icecream would be pralines and cream or one that's loaded with chocolate!

At December 16, 2010 at 7:23 AM , Blogger Shannon said...

I'm the youngest, too. I have one brother and one sister.

Workouts on Thursdays have typically been elliptical or rest, but since I won't have access to the gym starting tomorrow, who knows?

Favorite ice cream depends on my mood. Love vanilla, vanilla with chocolate sauce, vanilla with caramel sauce, mint chocolate chip, Phish Phood...

At December 16, 2010 at 7:30 AM , Blogger BigHappyFamily said...

I have a brother a year older. He's a marathon addict currently sidelined by PF. You can say hi to him in Boston for me.

Today's wo plan: 4 miles on the treadmill, lifting lower body, and swimming with my 4yo, so the laps will be few, but the smiles many.

At December 16, 2010 at 7:39 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Could you ever put together a spin workout for those of us who aren't in a class but could grab a bike and make our own? I'm not sure what to do to make it a good workout.

At December 16, 2010 at 7:48 AM , Blogger Emz said...

love it!

all of it.

And seriously nothing says Provo - like taco salad. ;)

~ I have one sister. But I also now have 1 sister-in-law, and 2 brothers-in-law.

~ Ice cream is my fav! I have a few favorites: Heavenly Hash, Rockey Road, Superman, Blue Moon.

~ I took Boot Camp this morning... I will be doing a post soon about my workout classes just for you. :)

I have an older brother and a younger sister so yes, I'm the Middle Child. My favorite ice cream flavor by far is cookies-n-cream but it has to be BlueBell. My Thursday workout was a 5 am 5 mile run with my best friend and usually the dog too! The dog decided to sleep in today. I think she knew it was cold outside.

At December 16, 2010 at 8:05 AM , Blogger Jen said...

That picture is darling! What a cutie! So many good things in one day! I have 2 sisters and 4 brothers. I'm the oldest. And it shows. My favorite ice cream is pumpkin. My Thursday workout is weights and spin class. Yeah!

I have an older brother and a twin sister :) I'm technically the middle child, but does it really count if you have a twin?

At December 16, 2010 at 8:30 AM , Blogger Crafty Jogger said...

BANANA PUDDING ICE CREAM!! It's soooo good. It comes with vanilla wafers in the ice cream, but they are a little mushy, so I like to put it ontop of MORE vanilla wafers. It will change your life!

At December 16, 2010 at 8:47 AM , Blogger Heather said...

family=awesome :)
love your pictures!
1-i'm actually an only child! and NO, i wasn't spoiled-just with lots of love.

2-fave ice cream: well, can't do dairy, so gotta make my own with coconut milk. coffee ice cream with chocolate covered coffee beans.

4-thursday workout. might not get to workout today, but yesterday it was running stairs and jumping jacks with a weighted exercise belt and weighted wrist bands. killer.

I have two (MUCH) older brothers. I'm the baby in the family, too!

I'm the baby of the family! I have one older brother (and a sister in law too!)

,.. ice cream. I'll eat ANY kind, but PB would be my fav!

And my workout today is... mostly likely sitting on my behind and watching hockey! I think it's my off day!

At December 16, 2010 at 9:21 AM , Blogger Val said...

I seriously just love your blog to death :)

Not much of an Ice Cream person, but I do love vanilla cones from mcdonalds. I'm more of a frozen yogurt person; cake batter, red velvet, vanilla, strawberry.

thursday workout; spin, and hot yoga!!!!

Advice: Can you email me i need some advice on blogging :)

At December 16, 2010 at 9:33 AM , Blogger Tricia said...

I have two sisters and a bro
My favorite icecream is peanut brittle icecream
And Thursday is a rest day :)

At December 16, 2010 at 9:50 AM , Blogger Pam said...

OMG... ice cream and cupcake blended together?!

I know what I'm having for dinner tonight!

At December 16, 2010 at 10:01 AM , Blogger The Wife In Her New Life said...

That cup-shake sounds AMAZING! I am definitely going to have to try this!

At December 16, 2010 at 10:08 AM , Blogger Pam said...

Oh, and I have one sister 6 years younger than me.

My favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerrys. All of them. But especially Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

And I'm 10 days post marathon #1, and I'm finally starting back in tonight with some cross-training. I'm headed to the gym for a spin on the bike!

At December 16, 2010 at 10:17 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have 2 older sisters (and 3 nieces)! I'm the baby, too. Favorite ice cream is probably mint chocolate chip or cookies n cream. I'm running outside this afternoon - gorgeous day in Dallas.

At December 16, 2010 at 10:57 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Okay, so many things to say... where to begin...

1. I'm so glad that you loved your package. You know I just gotta help support those like me with an addiction to ice cream and chocolate. Why don't we live closer so we could eat McDonald's ice cream together every day??? Thank you for your sweet words! :)

2. Don't even feel bad for being a home body! I call my Mom multiple times a day. She is seriously one of my best friends.

3. Cupcake shake = patent that.

4. I'm moving to UT so I can come to your spin class.

5. I have 2 older siblings. Being the baby rocks! I love that you blatantly said you are the favorite child. I say the same thing!

6. All time favorite ice cream = moose tracks, or Marmalade Skies, obviously.

7. Thursday workout will be an hour on the arc trainer and 15 mins on the stairs... plus arms and abs!

This is such a cute post! I love the pics:)

And I think I love your brother, lol. Cupcake & Ice Cream?! My kind of man!

I have an older brother and basically left crying this weekend when I had to say bye after our visit.

Great to see family - especially this time of year.

At December 16, 2010 at 11:25 AM , Blogger Nat said...

I have two sisters, and one brother (he passed away 4 years ago), AND I am the baby of the family too.

I don't really like ice cream (gasp!) but I like fro yo and my favorite flavor is white chocolate with strawberries on top.

Thursday's workout is always: 30 min. warm-up run; 1 hour endurance full-body lift; 30-45 minutes head-lamp run with teammates later.

Run happy!

At December 16, 2010 at 11:32 AM , Blogger Britt said...

I have one older brother. He's cool, love him, but sometimes though I feel like the older (more responsible) child....

Ice cream... so many to love. Mint oreo is pretty darn good though.

I ran this morning. Woot! Got my behind outta bed at 5:30am.

At December 16, 2010 at 11:33 AM , Blogger Britt said...

I have an older brother, and wish I had a sister too! You're lucky- you've got both!!
Ice cream= any Ben and Jerry's! :D

Your fam is so fun. I want to come play! I absolutely LOVED talking to you as well...I always do! And the class was awesome, as per usual. I had to change up the was about time. My sweet friend made it for me like 3 years ago, when I started it up, and I've been ready for a change for thanks! You're sweet :)

How many brothers and sisters to you have?
zero brothers, 1 sister. I feel like my BFF is my sister too though (she IS technically my sorority sister)

Number one favorite ice-cream.

Amy's Mexican Vanilla. And the shocker is, I don't even LIKE vanilla, it's that good.

What is your Thursday work-out?

AM full body strength

I have one older sister and love being the baby. Even though I'm now 27 and she's 29, I still can get away with more :)

Favorite ice cream: cookie dough hands down.

I just found your blog through SR and have added it to my favorite blog list! I too teach PE, Health, and Spin AND am a crazy runner.

Oh and that picture above? Adorable!

Your niece is adorable!!!

I am the oldest and have 4 brothers! I love my family, we have so much fun!

Fave icecream is cookie and cream.

Workout today was a 7 mile temp run and weighted pull ups.

At December 16, 2010 at 2:36 PM , Blogger Meg said...

Ohhh my goodness she's adorable. Just too too cute. I only have one brother (older) but I followed him around like a lost puppy for more years than is acceptable. He was totally my idol!

Favorite ice cream is, by far, chocolate chip cookie dough. Which is why I don't eat ice cream often at all lol.

Probably another bike workout for me today. I'm looking forward to having enough free time to get back in the pool!

At December 16, 2010 at 2:41 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have a huge family, so I understand how much you love spending time with everyone :) I'm so jealous you're a spin instructor! I almost thought about getting certified, but I didn't seem to have time. Great playlist, that would definitely motivate me to work hard!

P.S. Birthday Cake icecream = YUMMM!

At December 16, 2010 at 3:05 PM , Blogger XLMIC said...

You always have such fun questions and pictures!

I'm a lonely only. Hated it which is why I married a man w/ 6 kids and then had 4 more!

Favorite ice cream is super hard to find…Double Rainbow's It's A Goody (vanilla w/ fudge hunks and a peanut butter ribbon).

Today's workout (using that term loosely) will be an easy 2 mile trot around the compound at about 7:30 tonight…and I'm sick :( bleh.

At December 16, 2010 at 8:19 PM , Blogger Laura said...

Birthday Cake ice cream? First time I've ever heard of it! I have one brother, two years younger than me but 10 inches taller. Yikes! And I will be running tomorrow too...

At December 17, 2010 at 11:53 AM , Blogger Colleen said...

She's too cute!

Tom and I both have one sister... both sister's are married. :)

Can you have just one number one ice cream?

At December 17, 2010 at 3:57 PM , Blogger d.a.r. said...

Mmmmm birthday cake ice cream!!! I don't know if I could pick just one favorite. But, I hate not chocolate!

At December 17, 2010 at 7:58 PM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

Gosh, you've written a ton of blogs since I've read blogs last..I'm so behind on everyone. Um, do you ahve a new playlist each time you do spin or do you have several on your ipod? I still need to come back here and get all your best songs. I'd like to try possibly running more with some music. Do you do your mile repeats on the treadmill with music?
