Hop (and more Easter Candy!)

Random Wednesday night movie night--yeah! For some reason hubs and I have been seeing a ton of movies lately. I think we weren't used to having a ton of choices in Hong Kong and now it's so exciting that 4 or 5 new movies come out each week! So off we went to the theater and decided it would be cool to be the only adults in the whole place. Who knew movies with animated bunnies were for kids?

My favorite part was when someone in front of us started laughing and making fun of Russell Brand's English accent. Since my man is English too I found it hysterical. I guess I don't notice it anymore?

You know we snuck in candy. I stayed in the Easter category and got bunny gummies for me and some more mini-eggs for the mister. Best snacks in the whole place!
I know, I know...I got lucky. 

I have to admit to you that my feet get crazy cold in the theater. If I wear shoes like tonight (ballet flats) I have to bring thick socks in my bag. Yes, as soon as the lights go down I take off my flats and put on massive socks. Don't worry, I remembered to take them off before I left the theater. 

How often do you go to the movies?

Do you buys snacks or rebel and sneak in your own yummies?

  1. thanks for the shout out girl! you are awesome! I ALWAYS sneak in candy and soda...I just cannot afford 8 bucks for that stuff in the theater...haha. I wish I went to the movies more often but I have not been in a long while! Have a fabulous night!

  2. How funny, loved it! Y'all are such a cute couple. :) I think everybody in the world must sneak snacks into the movies!

  3. I rarely go to the movies, but when I do I bring a few meals worth of snacks. What if I get hungry?

  4. I love sneaking in food! One time I got a little carried away and popped my own popcorn and hid it in a ziploc bag, haha. Mini Eggs are a little easier, aren't they?! :-)

Are You a Salty Sweater? The Truth About Sodium and Running

Before I started running regularly, I did my best to avoid salt. After all, if you want to lose weight you're supposed to reduce sodium, right? Here's what the American Federal Government's recommendations for sodium intake (as of January 2011)

-if you're 51+ years old, black, have hypertension, kidney disease or diabetes, you get 1,500 mg. each day
-if you're a healthy adult, you get 2,300 mg. per day. A teaspoon. 

Now most of the time, I don't have an issue with this. Salt isn't used too much in my cooking, and I avoid a lot of common processed foods filled with sodium. When I do indulge in a salty meal, usually from a restaurant, I get the associated water weight gain and bloating. So I'm happy to stick to my meeting my 2,300 mg. requirements each day.

And then...summer arrives. If you're running in high humidity, you sweat. A lot. It's not pretty, and you're draining your body of electrolytes like sodium. On my long runs, I take precauti…

DIY Treadmill Desk

Working from home has its perks. Sure, my social interaction skills are deteriorating rapidly and casual dress Fridays now include those old ratty boxers and that one race shirt with the hole, but I also get to enjoy things like eating lunch at 10:30 because I feel like it and deciding where I want to work. Like on the treadmill.

Between working at my desk all day, using my computer for fun and then sitting on the couch watching television most nights for an hour or two, it's safe to say I sit on my ass a lot. And yep, that's not so great for you. Even though I work out 6 days a week, I hate that I spend easily 75% of my waking hours sitting.

On a whim, I asked Tim if he could build me a treadmill desk. I've seen these massive contraptions to make treadmill desks, but they basically transform it into a full-time desk, and I still want to use my treadmill for running (sans desk) as well. Magic carpenter man took a few measurements and brought me in a prototype by lunchtime.…

I Wanna Play! My 7 Links

I've been loving the "7 Links" Posts circulating the blogging world lately, so when I was tagged by Holly at Rust Belt Runner I couldn't wait to participate. Without further ado, here are my Seven Links...

Most Popular Post: Aside from giveaways (and we know why those are popular), one of my most read and commented on post was about my Weight Loss Journey. It got so much attention, it deserved it's own little tab at the top of my page!

Most Controversial Post: My post Good Person > Good Racer was possibly the most controversial. I talked about my own experience racing with my husband, and whether or not it is racer etiquette (or just plain rude) to pass someone when you planned on running together. Lots of differing options in this area!

Most Helpful Post: One of my earlier posts was titled What's Worth It, and recapped some running extras and whether or not they're beneficial. I go so much great feedback on products like foam rollers, compression sock…
