Favorite things
We got out last weekend and went to our lake.  We used to have a home there, but now just have a lot.  It’s met with mixed emotions as we love it there, but do miss having the place there.  Someday we will again. While I miss seeing friends and going out to eat occasionally ...

April Challenge
  I’m not sure where this picture comes from, but I found it on pinterest and love it.  Sums up Team Knotheads! Challenges: For the month of April, I have decided to go grain free.  I am gluten-free most of the time, but I regularly eat rice, tortilla chips, popcorn and oatmeal.  I often feel stuffed ...

Interest in Essential Oils

Interest in Essential Oils
I am becoming increasingly interested in Essential Oils.   I started my real food journey awhile back from reading a couple of great books.  Nina Planck’s Real Food:  What to Eat and Why and Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food.  They changed my whole outlook and it just. made. sense. I’m far from perfect and ...

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2
Race day! The alarm went off at 4:30.  Yuck.  I forget how noisy tent camping can be.  We listened to some coyotes during the night and one of us snored.  I’m not saying which one. We pulled on our clothes which consisted of new socks for both of us, and new pants for me.  Which ...

Winter Trail Runs 2

Winter Trail Runs
A couple of weeks ago, we ran the Raging Bull Trail Run. Again, signed up for 6, ran 3.  Boo, hiss. We discovered we run downhill like old ladies.  Really.  We picked our way downhill, sliding and slipping the whole way and not at all ‘running’.  The Raging Bull is a 3 mile loop in ...

Trail Run, and Whole 30 1

I’m a bit behind in my updating! I did what ended up to be a 3 mile trail run event on January 12.  I don’t really have any pictures from it.  It was a slippery muddy mess.  It was a lot of fun from the event standpoint, but pretty hard to navigate through the mud ...

Whole30 Diet Soda 13

Can’t believe it’s been 7 days already. I have made it 7 days without Diet Mountain Dew!  In my process of switching to whole, real foods, diet mountain dew has been my one major holdout.  I could cut back to one a day, but I could not drop that last one. I’ve read lots of ...

I got in!

Quick update – I got in to the Lincoln’s Half Marathon in Lincoln, Nebraska on May 4!  Registration opened at midnight last night and was sold out in less than 12 hours. Pretty excited!  Now I have to figure out my training plan!     Today was also the start of my Whole 30.  And ...

New Year Goals 2

I’ve never really been one to set goals.  I guess mostly because they were always the same.  I wanted to lose a little weight and be more active. This year, I got the active part down a little more, but still working on the losing weight.  It wasn’t a goal I set for the new ...
