BRICK Workout, Flat Tires, and Puppies!!

Hello friends! TGIF!! I am very happy it’s the weekend, even though I will be studying ALL WEEKEND!!

Yesterday I had my last BRICK workout before my TRI!! It’s next Saturday! Yikes!! I had planned on riding 10 miles and running 2 miles. I rode out 5 miles and turned around to head back, and about 3 miles from home my tire went flat. Like completely flat. Since I don’t know how to change a flat and don’t have any supplies to change a flat, my only two options were to keep riding on it or walk it home. Walking seemed like it would take forever so I rode my bike slowly home on a flat tire! Haha, at least I made it! Then I quickly changed out my helmet for a hat, grabbed a sip of water and my ipod, and I was off. The 2 miles were hard. I had to keep reminding myself to slow down because I was running so fast! For some reason, my legs are just ready to run super fast after I bike! I ended up running the 2 miles at a 9:20 min/mile pace! Geez! I wish my legs acted like that on every run!! So I basically feel ready for the race. I know I’m going to be tired after the swim, so I’m trying to mentally prepare myself to keep going through exhaustion. But I’m also really excited about it!!


I got a fun surprise waiting for me on my doorstep today from Foodbuzz!!


Kellogg's Fiber Plus Antioxidants Cereal!! I received the Berry Yogurt Crunch and Cinnamon Oat Crunch from the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program. Of course I had to bust into one and try some! I love, love, love cereal!!

I opted to try the Berry Yogurt Crunch today!


It was VERY good!! Kind of a similar taste to the Special K with Red Berries but with added yogurt globs and granola clusters! Yummy!! The nutrition info is pretty good too! No HFCS and lots of fiber!! Can’t wait to try both of these with milk!!


On another note, hubby and I have been talking about getting another puppy so Sadie can have a buddy. We have been going back and forth between types and sizes of dogs. Last night, we finally decided we wanted a little dog. We are thinking it will be easier to train, less messes (as in size of messes, haha), and we think Sadie would like a smaller dog better. She’s not a huge player, she likes to be lazy :) So, we decided to get a Toy Yorkie!! I don’t know when exactly but sometime in the near future!! I know they can be expensive so we are going to look around and hopefully find a good price on one. It doesn’t need to have champion blood lines or anything!! Do any of y’all have yorkies? Tips on them? Any of you peeps in Memphis know any toy yorkie breeders? We are really excited!!

How cute are those yorkies!! I’ve never had a tiny dog so I’m really excited to have one soon!!

If you could get any type of dog, what would you get and why?


  1. Those sound so yummy. I've been watching the commercials for them on tv and they look YUMMY!!! I think I would love the second one :)

  2. I bought the Cinnamon Oat Crunch last week! I love it, it tastes like Apple Cinnamon Cheerios and really fills me up.

    Congrats on the dog! I have been wanting to get a dog for a looong time. I'm thinking little too.

  3. Sorry, randomly browsing everyone elses' blogs. I have two Chihuahuas myself, but if my husband were willing to allow another ankle biter, I would do a Pomeranian. :) Unfortunately, those annual dental cleanings add up! So FYI, remember to find a good doggie dentist that will take good care of your lil' ones' teeth. I have to take mine in each year.

  4. THose dogs are beyond cute!

  5. New follower, I'm not sure how I got here. :) One blog lead to another! But you have a cute blog.
    I have a Yorkie right now, she is 11 months and the best ever.
    If you want me to answer any questions. I'll be glad too. Lex (my dog) is actually the third Yorkie me and my family have owned!
