It is officially my Birthday Week.

For this entire week please remember that it is my birthday week, it might be helpful and a good reminder to put this important week into your phones or on your calendar/day-planner/computer.  If you wish to leave extra long comments telling me how we are best friends and that you are going to enjoy skittles and a fro-yo in my honor please do so.

Billy asked me yesterday if we could be twinner's.  He loves to wear the same color as me.  So, I let him this time only.

He also asked if we could do a kissing picture but then he backed out and now I am embarrassed.


Okay, so he got dressed before I did but I am pretty sure it was the highlight of my week to both be wearing purple at the same time. I had to document it.


For dinner I really just wanted 25 biscuits with honey butter but I decided to load up on taco soup and jello too.  If you have heard rumors that Utah eats a lot of jello, it is the truth.  There were blackberries and bananas in that jello too, brilliant combination.


I think there was some sports game going on yesterday but I opted to loose in bingo to a 8-year old instead of watching the football game.


Reason #34598 to run:


You can eat all the brownies and ice cream that you want.  Okay, maybe that's not true but let's just close our eyes and pretend real hard that it is and maybe it will come true.

Giveaway in the afternoon post today.......don't forget to come back later.  You are going to want to win this one!!


Go wish TMB @ Racing with Babes and Ali @Aliruns a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


P.S. for some reason Wordpress blogs send my comments to makes me sad, so check your spam so that we can be blog bff's and you get my comments:)

What is your Monday workout?

-Speed work on the good ol' treadmill @ 5 a.m.

What is your favorite color to wear? Or what color do you wear most often?

-PURPLE and black in the winter and white and turquoise in the summer.

Do you feel like a bottomless pit when you run a lot?

-It is kind of scaring me.  I think I should not only compete in marathons but also in eating takes a lot to fill me up when I am running a lot of miles.  No food left behind.

Um yes, I am the most bottomless bottomless pit there ever was, it is frightening how, much I have to eat to not be a grumpy hungry running monsta! Happy birthday week girl!! I love birthdays and I am excited for this giveaway, slash matchy matching is so cute, have a good Monday girl!:)

Happy Birthday Week!!!! =D
Looks like you had a great day yesterday!
I definitely feel like a bottomless pit on workout days! I think I startle some people with my snacking every hour or so....

I love birthday weeks! This past year I tried to stretch it out to be a Birthday Month. The husband put a quick end to that. :) During marathon training (like right now), I seriously get concerned that I either 1) have a tapeworm or 2) am pregnant because I can. Not. Stop. Eating! My favorite colors to wear: shades of grays, blues and purples. All year round. Mondays are a recovery day for me, I do some deep water running, core, lower and upper body strength training routine, and some elliptical or cycling. Happy Birthday week!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:51 AM , Blogger Holly said...

I am a bottom less pit also!! If I have a HUGE salad after I run it makes me hungrier in the afternoon and so I eat more stuff than I should, even if it is still good stuff.

Purple is my favorite color also! It's a family thing as it is my Mom's and her Mom's favorite color as well! I seem to wear a lot of green and blue in the summer though, and pink!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:52 AM , Blogger Lindsay and James Cotter said...

happy birthday WEEK!! YEA! Purple and Green are my favorite colors too. I knew I liked you for a reason.
Need for Speed Monday is accomplished, nice job woman!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:57 AM , OpenID mealsformiles said...

I heart purple - it takes a real man to wear that color, if you ask me :)

My workout was XT today on the spin bike and ET.

Happy Birthday week, hooray!

Totally a bottomless pit over here... Hubby tries to keep up with me, but it doesn't work as well for him since he rarely exercises. Oops!
I'm gonna try and get some miles in today without hacking up a lung. We'll see. And currently, I'm into pink.
Happy Birthday Week!

Happy Birthday Week! I also love purple :) My shoelaces in my running shoes are purple lock laces, I love 'em! My planned workout in a mile on the tm then an hour spin class and then another mile. It's my old-lady-protect-my-joints-but-still-get-some-endurance-workout. My 3 year old is telling me she feels sick and doesn't want to go to the gym and I am #3 on spin waitlist though, so this is subject to modification. Thanks so so much for commenting on my 5k post, so awesome of you!!

You always end up in my spam - it makes me so so sad. I check it every day just for your comments.

The Husband never wants to match me - or take pictures, let alone kissing pictures. You're so lucky. :)

At February 7, 2011 at 6:23 AM , Blogger Carina said...

Speaking of bottomless pits, when I was training last year, after a 22 miler, I went to our local Italian festival. They were looking for people to enter an eating contest. I made sure it was spaghetti with no meat in the sauce and couldn't believe my luck. I was all, you mean I get to eat as much of a big bowl of pasta as I want and I don't have to pay for it even if I don't win? And since there were about 10 of us competing, it didn't seem like people were watching me. It was so delicious. I ate, and ate, and ate. And lost the contest, but got a full belly!

Happy Birthday Week to you! 3 more weeks until mine. I love purple too.
Today is my "rest" day after running all weekend long. Perhaps my "rest" will include a Jillian Michaels DVD today after school.

You just make my morning every time I read your posts. You are too cute.

I am impressed with the husband picture. And truth be told, if for some odd reason my hubby and I were matching, he would go and change. It makes me sad. So count your blessings :)

Hey! Happy birthday! Looks like you had a fun super Bowl Sunday- my girlfriends and I decided to play Wii party instead of watch the game...
I LOVE purple and wear it a lot too- but I can always find a ton of PINK stuff on sale so I'm in that a lot.
I'm so excited for your giveaway and will check back later!

Happy birthday week!
I was doing my speed work on the treadmill this morning and I was thinking that there must be some other bloggers out there doing it at well. We can just close our eyes and pretend we are all running next to each other!
My fav color would have to heather gray.

Yes, I am an absolute bottomless pit - worst is after long training runs. No matter what I eat I feel like I can never get full for the rest of the day!

At February 7, 2011 at 6:57 AM , Blogger Allie @ The Constant Pursuit said...

I have that purple sweater! Although, I wear it like a dress. I think that makes me trashy.

My birthday is February 25th and I looooove Valentine's Day, so Mike has been tortured into believing that this month is just one big celebration.

Oh man, since I've started running more, my grocery bills have gone up and I feel like I'm never NOT eating. AH!

Happy birthday week to you! I will eat all of my sweets and candies in your honor :)

I haven't decided my Monday workout yet. I'm debating between a rest day or a standard seven miler...

My favorite color to wear is probably grey. That's weird, isn't it?

My favorite colors to wear are purple or some variation of red/pink.

Running definitely makes me ravenous. It scares me too!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK!!!! What a wonderful week! Lol.

My workout today will be after work and it will be a run on the treadmill, followed by some machines. Yay. I can't wait!!

In the winter I wear a lot of black and gray, but usually with a pop of color. In the summer I almost always have blue on because it is my favorite, plus it makes my eyes shine!!

I don't always feel like a bottomless pit after running, it's actually usually the next day that I feel that way!

Yay, Yay!! We share February bday!

Hmm I have many fav colors.. Running stuff I like pink. But I love green and purple. Blue too.. see I' can't decide!

Yes I'm hungry!!!

Since I am not a runner I will just say the my favorite color to wear is Purple or Black. So, I guess we are kind of like BFFs. Minus the whole running thing. =)

Happy birthday week! It's my birthday week too! (My birthday is on Friday.) I plan to celebrate on Friday by taking my 7th graders on a field trip and to pizza. If they are at all grateful, they will provide cake!

Monday workout - elliptical

Color most worn - red

Bottomless pit - I wish. I'm trying to lose weight, so the running is part of that.

It's my daughter's birthday week too! She'll be 1.

I know I don't need to tell you that since you work out so much that you actually need to consume more calories. The ideal way to find out how much more is by wearing a heart monitor when you work out. Some heart monitors will tell you how many calories you've burned, so you know about how much more you should be eating. And those calories should be coming from things like protein and whole grains, not Swedish Fish...Love you and I'm sorry, but it's true.

At February 7, 2011 at 7:43 AM , Blogger LindseyAnn said...

Oh yes, I am DEFINITELY a bottomless pit when I run a lot. My fiance is going to hate our food bill during this race training :( ;)
I'm heading out for a 4 mile run here at some point. I thought about swapping my 4 today for tomorrow's 6, but I'm going to be good and do what coach tells me ;)
Colors most worn: green and cream. No idea why, I guess I'm just drawn to them.
Happy Birthday week! :)

Happy Birthday Week to you! This morning's workout was just 4 miles finally outside again! we were dodging ice patches though so it made it tricky. Another 6 to ten inches is apparently on it's way on Wednesday. Boo.
I LOVE Purple right now too!!! And turquoise in the summer! I think it's being a brunette, colors look good on us!
And yes, I'm a bottomless pit.

My Monday workout will include lifting back, bicep and shoulders followed by a cardio sesh.

My favorite color to wear is coral. It compliments my skin tone, methinks.

I do feel like a bottomless pit when I run/workout a lot. Especially when I'm eating 3x the amount of food as my husband. AWKweeerd.

Happy Birthday week!!!

Happy Birthday Week! I love wearing purple but I wear loads of black because I am a NY girl. For some reason we wear black like a uniform. Sometimes you need a little color for cheer. I am bottomless pit for chicken while in marathon training.

Question for you: I read your blog daily but rarely comment. Is that weird? Is it bad? Do you want your readers to always comment? Guess I need to learn blog ettiquette, huh?

I also feel like a bottomless pit when i'm running alot but I think I give in too much sometimes, too. I have to find balance between the two!!

Today I did 6 miles on the elliptical. I'm still trying to give my twisted ankle a rest and it's still killing me not to run. BUT i'm trying to be reponsible and let it heal. It felt good to sweat, though!

Happy Birthday Week!! I hope you get all sorts of purple sugary delicious treats from Billy and your family!

Happy Birthday Monday!! I think for every day this week you should eat candy that either begin with a J (for your name), F (for february) or the day of the week. So today you could eat M & Ms and not feel guilty about it!

Do you get presents throughout the week? We do this in my family. Instead of 1 big gift we get a lot of little gifts :)

My Mom is a marathoner and she can eat anything in her sight when she is training. Right now she is training for her 10th marathon and eats double what my Dad does!! It's hilarious!! Take it in stride and she says to eat lots of high fiber foods!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You and Billy are so cute in your purple.
We had a taco bar for the game yesterday and also a cup cake decorating bar..I wish you lived closer and I would set you up my famous ice cream sandwich bar (I made brownies and chocolate chip cookies and cut them into bar..cut ice cream into bars and then had topping for the sides of the sandwich....made it for my group of girlfriends this past summer)

ANyhow..did a circuit of ellyptical, biking and running at the gym...hope to run 5 or so more miles outside tonight.
I like to wear teals and white when it is summer...aka I am tan. Right now I don't really have a color but i love a cardigan these days..the ones that engulf you.
I like to eat....I need to get better about actually eating more often as I get sidetracked with the boys and forget to eat sometimes...oops

Happy Birthday week!
Monday workout was a three mile run and a Cardio Muscle class. :)

I did a 4 mile run outside during my lunch break. I ran a 5K race yesterday morning so today was supposed to be an easy day, but I think I managed to find the hilly-est route in Ann Arbor. Felt good though. I'd like to be a bottomless pit, but I'm trying to loose a couple lbs for my wedding, so trying to contain myself at least a little. Oh, I think that I wear TEAL a lot... that & pink & red. Happy Birthday Week!!

Happy birthday week!! (You should make a birthday month!!!) Sadly I wear way too much black because I'm emo and goth!! No just kidding, but if I wear color I love red!!

lots of fun questions:
3 miles on treadmill at apt. complex
BLACK it's just so easy and flattering
I hate my runners hunger!

Happy Birthday week, Janae!!

7 miles on old reliable - treadmill at 6:15 am.

Pink - I am a girly girl. But I wear too much black & gray.

I know! You feel like you could eat a house! It scares me a little. Where do you draw the line??

I love the color purple! Most def my fav color. Also? Your kissy face couple pic is seriously cracking me up, hilarious! :) Happy birthday week to you! And lastly, my workout this morning was 3600 painfully fast yards in the pool. Masters swim is no JOKE and it's kicking my runners BUTT. But I kind of love it.

At February 7, 2011 at 1:37 PM , Blogger Maria said...

I love to wear either green or pink! So I need 2 sets of things like scarves and gloves as the two dont go at all!
My monday workout was a 6 mile gentle run :)
I am not surprised that you feel hungry the amount of running you do is amazing! :)Enjoy your birthday weekx

February is my birthday month too! I swear it means we are related...or our parents were "busy" around the same time!!!

Monday workout = 8x400 @ 2:05 during my lunch hour!

Happy birthday week! My boyfriend & I have a few matching shirts (from colleges and stuff), and I always make silly jokes when we match. I also make us take way too many pictures. I love wearing a salmon-pink color or a light green!

Happy Birthday!! In your honor, I will bribe my potty reluctant 2 yo to pee in the potty with skittles instead of m+m's ... that's a sure sign that we are BFF, no?

Today's work out started with chaperoning the aquarium field trip. That is exhausting! However, tonight, I will be doing the more traditional workout things, 4 miles on the TM followed by core and upper body resistance work.

Happy kick off of your birthday week!

Happy birthday gorgeous :)

My Monday workout was a weird 'tri' combo of 11.5 mile run, 90 minutes spin, 1000m in the pool.

Colour-wise, I'm all about the black clothes...I just feel 'safer' in them and they fit my dour personality. I was a Goth for a while in my teens and I think my wardrobe is still mostly stuck in that phase of my life.

I am a bottomless pit whether or not I run. It scares the heck out of me, but what can you do? I'm just never going to be one of those people with a bird-like appetite. And you're tiny anyway! No matter how much you eat, you never get any bigger and those muscles need some fuelling. I really wouldn't worry about it you 23-miler treadmill runner, you. And it just shows how amazing you are that I'm no longer surprised when you just knock out 23 miles on the dreadmill like it's nothing!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK!! When exactly is your bday? I need to know exactly when to bombard your comments/email with birthday love, and when to leave extra long comments telling you how we are best friends and that I am going to enjoy skittles and a (vegan?) fro-yo in your honor:)

Hold the phone, I CAN'T eat all the brownies I want because I run?! Please tell me that's not true!! This bottomless pit NEEDS her brownies!!

Happy birthday week...maybe next year you should aim for a birthday month? I tried it this year and it pretty much rocks! I'm never going back to just a single week again.

I am a bottomless pit after a long run. It's so bad.
I think I ate 75% of the dessert platter at the Superbowl party last night! That's what 18 miles will do to ya. But I enjoyed every bite. :)

Happy Birthday week! I celebrate all month, though ... so I say you should, too! February is the shortest month ever, though ... so you should definitely celebrate all 28 days! :)

Happy Birthday Week! I'm so happy you're a dedicated bday celebrator. I always insist on celebrating all week. Actually, I prefer on celebrating all month but my family/friends don't usually support that... I have no idea why not.

I can never eat enough after a long run! I bought myself cinnamon rolls to motivate me for long runs! Yum!

I love that you have a birthday week too! My family is not so sure about the whole "week" aspect but I make sure that they remember...haha. I also feel like I can never eat enough lately. It is terrible but I like knowing I can usually treat myself to "bad" stuff and not feel so awful because...well...I am a runner. seems like perfect logic. also...followed your example today and decided on an extra mile on the treadmill outweighed the time I needed to get ready. it was great. :) have an awesome week!

My Monday workout is a 2 mile run followed by spin class that will commense in one hour!

Mondays for me are easy runs. I did 3 easy miles this morning in the dark. I love wearing black and purple and blue. Omg your bday week really snuck up on me! I am bottomless pit right now. I am going back for more cake soon. Why am I so hungry??!

At February 7, 2011 at 5:23 PM , Blogger Kate said...

I constantly tell people that I think I am meant to compete in eating contests!!! I could do ice cream and pizza for sure. Pre-vegan days, I would totally win a hotdog eating contest. I loved those nasty little suckers!

You and I should compete.

And, yes, I always feel like a bottomless pit.

Happy birthday week! My siblings and I seriously sing "happy week before your birthday", all the way until about "happy three days after your birthday". And I love the expression on that little boy's face, haha!

That Jello sounds brilliant! and easy. I'ma make it.

Today was 19.4 miles. holla

I have thought about professional eating contests. I can eat way more than I should admit. OK I'll admit it: I have easily eaten a quart of frozen yogurt. A QUART. and that, my friend, is after a full dinner.

I just realized today that your comments were going to my spam box. Here all this time I thought you were too pretty and popular to read my little 'ol blog. But now I know we're actually best friends! Ha! Hope you have a fabulous b-day week!

Happy Birthday Week! I just checked my Wordpress spam and did have a comment from you! Yay! :) I had no idea that it was happening so thanks for the heads up. Hopefully now if you want to comment it won't be spam, but I'll make sure to check there in the future.

I hope you have a great birthday week! Your blog is awesome!!
