TGIF!!! 🙂 – I love friday’s, don’t you?!
Well I was really excited to start my morning off with something special. I have been waiting for the perfect day to try this out, and when I noticed I was out of spinach (which means no morning smoothie) I opted for the old empty peanut butter jar.
Yup, I’m no longer an Oats in the Jar virgin anymore!
Today’s Breakfast of champions:
Banana Oats in a Peanutbutter jar – oh yeah!
My Oats in a Jar Contained:
- 1 sliced up banana
- 1/2 cup cooked oats
- sprinkling of crushed almonds

So as I mentioned in this post earlier this week, I am training for the Sawtooth Relay Race in June. But to look farther ahead at the bigger picture I am actually training for a half-marathon that I will run in July. 🙂
My goal last night was to make a training schedule that would basically train me for both. I spent several hours looking at Hal Higdon’s half-marathon schedule trying to adapt it into something that would work for my relay and in the long run train me for my very first half marathon.
All you half-marathon veterans – can you PLEASE take a look at my training schedule and give me feed back? I found it extremely hard to fit in everything that is going on in my life and of course I am not willing to give up my kickboxing class. Let me know what you think, all suggestions are welcome as I have never ran a half before and keep in mind I am also training for the Relay.

Manicures make me HAPPY! 🙂
As you can see I decided to give myself a little home manicure last night. Ahh.. the nails are looking so nice these days!
Well it has been about 5 weeks since I began taking this and what I have noticed is a dramatic increase in my nail growth. My fingernails are growing fast and strong! It’s pretty amazing actually. Over the past few years I noticed that they would break easily and were bendable (not strong at all). In 5 weeks of taking this I have seen a huge difference!
I have also noticed a huge decrease in my emotional outbursts since taking this, a multivitamin, and a B-Vitamin – all while switching to a different kind of birth control. I was on some crazy emotional rollercoaster (I would seriously burst out into tears for no reason) and have been in better spirits in the last month. One of the many things mentioned above, or the whole combo has me raving with joy! 🙂
J. Alabama & I are celebrating our 1 year of dating this weekend! 🙂
I have planned some fun things for us in the evening Saturday Night and he is in charge of planning the activities during the day. I will report on monday (our actual anniversary) on the actual happenings. In case he is reading I don’t want to spill the beans!
Have a great weekend everyone! And don’t forget to take a look at my training plan and give me some pointers! Thanks!
