Snow Tornadoes

I don’t know how all you people in the North do it! I am not a fan of the snow!! It’s fun for about a day and then it just starts getting in the way! It’s still a little snowy today and super windy! It looks like there are “snow tornadoes”! I’ve never seen that before! Ha!!

The one thing the snow is really affecting is my running :(  Boo. I have 8 miles on the schedule today and obviously I will NOT be running in snow tornadoes, so it’s either I try to do 8 miles on the treadmill today or try to do the 8 miles Thursday, which would cut into study time for my test Friday. Decisions, decisions. Originally I was going to get up at 7am and run before I needed to start on some studying/ school work around 10am, but when my alarm went off I just felt super tired, so I went back to sleep. And now I don’t have time to run this morning. So fingers crossed that I will be able to do the 8 miles on the treadmill this afternoon/evening. I hate putting it off the whole day but sometimes you just have to. I always am a little nervous about my stomach and side stitches with afternoon/evening runs. Just never seems to work out right. We’ll see I guess!!

My back is SUPER sore from my Arm Circuit Workout #1 yesterday!! I think from the push ups and punches!! It’s a good sore though! Just hoping it doesn’t affect my running today too much! Ha!!

I ended up getting up around 8am, which is pretty late for me! Not sure why I’ve been so tired lately! I go to bed every night around 9:30-10pm, so it’s not like I’m lacking sleep!! Guess my body is just asking for a little more!! I did have to get up with Sadie in the middle of the night, so maybe that was it. She had me really worried! She had thrown up right around dinner time and was just acting kind of sickly. So I went to bed and woke up to her making a gasping/choking sound. She does this often, and the vet refers to it as a reverse sneeze, but usually she can get back to her normal breathing pretty quickly. But last night, it went on for about 10 minutes! I was so scared she was just going to stop breathing! Her eyes were all glazed over, which scared me even more!! Luckily, she stopped after a while and seemed fine. She seems back to her normal self this morning, so I’m not sure what was up last night. But, it was hard to go back to sleep after that!! I can deal with any kind of people emergency situation, but with my puppy, I am clueless!!  So when I did get up, I was able to have a semi relaxing morning for a few hours!! I did my Bible study, made some yummy Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal, and caught up on some blogs!! I am also watching Regis and Kelly hoping to see Meghann and Tina!! They are there on a Foodbuzz trip in NYC and are in the Regis and Kelly audience today!!

Back to breakfast!! I loved the Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal so much yesterday, that I knew I definitely wanted it again today!! I used the same recipe except I added about 1-2 TBSP water to thin it out a bit (the pumpkin makes it a lot thicker) and added a few slices of banana on the top instead of mashing it all up. Like expected, it was DELIGHTFUL!!


I love how melty the brown sugar gets on the top!




With a scoop of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB!!


And some DD Hazelnut coffee with a little cream. I am almost of of coffee! I can MAYBE squeeze 1 more cup out of it! Guess I will have to visit Starbucks the rest of the week! Darn… :)


Let’s talk The Bachelor…. SPOILER if you haven’t watched yet!!


So, as I said yesterday, Ali was one of my favorites… until last night. I understand that it’s hard to make a decision about work and love when you don’t REALLY know how the other person feels. That being said, MAKE A DECISION ALREADY!! She looked like a crazy lady last night with all the whining and crying about NOT being able to make a decision! She obviously had feelings for him so why she didn’t stay is beyond me. Love is all about taking chances and I guess she just wasn’t ready to take one on Jake! But, I also realize this is TV and it was probably staged, and we all know she will be back next week or the finale night. But, needless to say, she is not my favorite anymore. I am Team Tenley, even though I was so embarrassed for her when she did her dance routine for Jake! As Kelly says, she was “chawed”!! That’s exactly how I felt!! Ha!!

Well, that’s enough about that! Did anyone watch 24 last night?? I heard it was a good one! I recorded it, but haven’t watched it yet! Hopefully I will get to it today!! Maybe while I’m running on the treadmill…

Well y’all, gotta get to some studying!! Have a GREAT Tuesday!!


  1. That oatmeal looks yum! :) I was disappointed last night too! :( I know who he picks in the end though...

  2. Your probably so tired from all this studying! Blech. Don't miss that one bit!

    I don't care for Ali. I don't like girls who spend so much energy hating on other girls (Vienna). Get over it. Worry about yourself drama queen. Tenly was even like that when she was around her. I just recently started liking Gia, but she is so insecure. Honestly, I don't think jake should pick any of them...but secretly, I hope he picks Vienna just to piss of all the hating bitches :)

  3. Stay safe! I really still can't believe how much snow you have gotten. I am not a fan and I live in NYC...go figure!
