Three Things Thursday

Just some Random thoughts I have been having while running that I thought I would turn into a Three Things Thursday. I do not typically do any type of weekly post but I have a lot more time on my hands. Not really because as I am blogging my 30 pound son is straddling my neck and I have a leg blocking my vision right now!

1. I could never be a personal trainer for a really odd reason! Granted no one would pay to have my unripped body and my nutrition advice is not anything you would see on Dr. Oz but the real reason is the clothing! I love work out gear and hope the new school uniform policy involves tempo shorts but I hate sports bras. For some reason if I wear my sports bra longer than a couple of hours my shoulders hurt so bad. Now some of you ladies have some weight in that area that pull at the straps but not this girl. So as I live in workout gear this summer I have noticed if I keep my sports bra on too long I end up with serious shoulder pain. Random thought, huh?

2. I love planning birthday parties for my son! He will be 3 on September 6th and I have been planning his party for weeks. I am working on invitations and his birthday shirt already; as in ordering them online not making them myself : ) I have already started designing his cake (for someone else to make) and seriously am thinking about going to Walmart to buy all the other supplies! But it makes the actual day a lot stressful when you have things taken care of weeks in advance.

3. I am skinnier when I work. I think I graze a lot in the kitchen when I am home all day. I have been about 3 to 4 pounds heavier all summer but am working out more than ever. At work I do not get to eat as much because I have like a 20 minute lunch and walk around like crazy all day.

One serious questions... as if you are still reading! Could I have possibly gained weight from just the little bit of strength training I am doing? I am doing a kettle bell work out 3-4 times a week. My clothes fit basically the same and there is some difference in mine arms and abs. Perhaps I have found some muscle???


  1. How long you been lifting? If its been a month, then yes, it can very easily be muscle.

  2. I usually see a slight gain in the first couple weeks of a new ST program

  3. i feel the same way about working. it's the only controlled environment where i can "trap" myself with only healthy foods haha
