Ok. Don’t answer that.

But I am breaking out everywhere. On my face, chest, arms, tummy & legs. I dunno what is going on or what I’m allergic to, but it keeps getting worse!

My brother and I think I may be allergic to alfalfa. He and Taylor have been unloading alfalfa, Keena has been playing in alfalfa – put two and two together.

But also, I noticed I started breaking out this morning after breakfast, and then again as I was catching up on Pretty Little Liars after finishing a gala apple – I also had one for breakfast.

I better not be allergic to apples. Or else I’ll punch somebody. I practically live off of apples.

What are you all allergic to? What do you do when you have a reaction like this?

Well while I’m on a pity-party, CrossFit Mon-Wed was toughhh. Today is open gym – so I decided not to go just because I am breaking out so bad.

Okay. I need some feedback on this, but I feel like a lot of people in my gym feel like I’m cheating somehow by skipping reps or not going as full out as I can. I get done with workouts fast, well, like 3-5 minutes faster than most people. I feel like it’s because since I am a distance runner, I understand the concept of keeping a “constant pace,” so I don’t take breaks, and when I do they are only for 5-10 seconds. So with today’s workout, I was keeping a solid 3 minutes per round pace. I made sure to keep time with the clock. But when I finished, I got all sorts of crazy looks from people. I’m not a cheater, I swear on it! How in the world do I fix this?

And yes, your feedback is required.

Tomorrow I will be writing a special post for all of you confused by the fitness world and by what people say is the right thing to do to lost weight and get in shape. There is SO MUCH jumble in the media on how to get rid of unnecessary weight. I read articles in newspapers and think, “This is a bunch of crap.”

Now I’m not saying what I tell you tomorrow is PhD approved before I post it, but it’s what I understand and what I know is for a fact.

So, again, feedback and…

Run on.

Hey y’all!

This weekend I rested, went on a date, and cooked… Yep. That’s about it.

I didn’t get any running in, because I am still coughing up a storm. Boo me.

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried everything. I’ve been taking antibiotics twice a day, drinking a cup of disgusting Emergen-C twice a day, mucinex at least once a day, I’ve tried…

VapoRub. I now smell awful.

Warm tea... I really hate warm tea. I'm an iced tea kind of gal.

and lastly…

Lots of rest with Keena... And with my Brooks PureCadence on.

Still no luck. Ah well. On the bright side, today I got to eat a lot for snack day today in TOC. And guess who made it all… ME!

I spent most of the day cooking yesterday. It was requested for me to cook Italian food. So what do I cook for that? Here’s what was on the menu (almost all new things to me, and some of it’s not Italian!)

-Veggie & Fruit Trays

– Puffins (Little filling-stuffed pastries)

– Italian Bread (store bought)

– Minestrone Soup

– Pizza (from Pizza Hut.. Just incase soup flunked.)

– Italian Wraps

– Italian Cream Cake (Heaven)

Everything turned out really well! I was surprised with myself! Especially the pizza. I slaved over that for hours.

Okay. Well I think it’s time for another round of antibiotics/ emergen-c. Pray for me, I don’t want to take any more rest days! I can’t really afford it… 😦

Run on.
