I Want More Race Medals!

I officially hung up my NYC Half Marathon medal in the “race corner” of my room. I clip all my bibs together, and as you can see, I have my 2 finisher medals out for all the world to see. Other than my recent medal addition this pile of bibs include: Broad Street Medal (check!), Zooma Annapolis necklace (in my jewelry drawer, check!) NYRR Snowflake 5K (check!), NYRR Holiday 4 Mile (check!) and a few other random ones. I love collecting my racing bibs!

I was most definitely in need of a little foam rolling action. Jackson wanted in on the fun too! I took today and yesterday off and will start back up slow tomorrow. I may stay away from running this week if I can stand it, but I wanted to give my body a rest. I plan on doing a Shred workout or hitting up the elliptical at the gym or maybe going for a bike ride. Proper recovery post races is muy importante!

I also picked up Jillian Michaels book Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You’>Making the Cut this weekend in NYC at a used bookstore. I got this bad boy for $7.00, hardcover! Score! I want to read it and maybe put her 30-day plan into effect. I shall let you know my thoughts as I read! I am also reading Autobiography of a Face’>Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy. It’s pretty good so far, its about a young girl who was diagnosed with potentially terminal cancer and had to have part of her jaw removed at nine years old. It’s a pretty engaging book.

Also, check out my loot from kate monster from this weekend! I am in Matrix heaven! KM has a glamorous job in the big apple and was able to hook me up with some fabulous L’Oreal products! Yay for my hair! Thanks KM! You are the best!

Flax Matters Giveaway!

I received a fabulous package from Flax Matters 2 weeks ago and have been using lots of flax ever since! I have made pancakes, and smoothies, and green monsters with all the flax. It has been a great addition to my diet. I love adding it to everything I can!

Fabulous Facts about Flax

  • Cultivated since ancient times as a source of food or fiber
  • The plant grows to be about 3 feet high, has small blue flowers and thrives in cold, northern climates
  • Each flower produces 7 to 10 flaxseeds, which are slightly larger than sesame seeds, with hard, shiny husks that range in color from amber to reddish brown
  • Milling or grinding flaxseed is the best way to tap into all of its nutritional benefits
  • Studies have shown that these powerful antioxidants may reduce the risk of hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast and prostate cancer

The Dog Days of Summer

Jackson has had a busy birthday, filled with play dates and presents and lots of treats! We woke up this morning and went outside and Jackson had a little puppy play date with Moby.

NYC Half 123

Can you tell where one black puppy ends and the other begins? NYC Half 124

I love how in this picture, you can see Moby trying to lick Jackson. I am pretty sure they were BIRTHDAY KISSES! Yay!

NYC Half 125

After puppy play time, it was time to open the presents. This one came all the way from Jacksons grandparents (my mom and dad) in VA! Jackson was super pumped to get mail!

NYC Half 126NYC Half 127

How cute is all this? Obviously, Jackson went straight for the treat!

NYC Half 128

He got a birthday boy squeaky toy and a red dog cookie

NYC Half 129 NYC Half 130

And how ADORABLE is this shirt?

“It’s my party and I’ll BARK if I want to”

NYC Half 131 NYC Half 132

Check out the label, “Haute Diggity Dog”

NYC Half 138

I showered Jackson with all sorts of treats and chew toys. I bought them all in a snazzy NYC puppy store.

NYC Half 134

Jackson went right to work chewing on his new treats. Check out the card from grandma and grandpa. Every year they send him a card with the age he is. I am positive the cards are for humans. Makes me laugh!

NYC Half 133

Jackson checking out the cupcake. It looked yummy to me!

Chowing down on another treat

NYC Half 136

I even bought Jackson a special birthday meal. He usually eats dry dog food, but on special occasions and holidays he gets wet food, and he LOVES it. I got him Chunky Chicken Dinner from Trader Joes. He went crazy for it!

NYC Half 137

Jackson is now 21 (in dog years) so boyf and I thought it was only right for Jackson to have a beer! Cheers to 21 (doggie) years!

NYC Half 141 NYC Half 142

Not really. No beer for my puppy! We only got a picture of him NEXT to a beer. That counts right? I am sure his little tummy was already too full from all his other fabulous treats anyways!

NYC Half 139

I also wanted to answer a reader question about Jackson. He is a bischon frise / shih tzu mix. His mom was all white, and his dad was all black which equals my grey little ball of fur!

Off to snuggle with the birthday boy!
