Monday Mix Tape - Shameless self-promotion edition

Hi all! My foot is being extremely slow to heal but at least I'm not in tears anymore. I've been wearing sensible shoes and can hopefully start getting some miles in for the 3-Day.


Which brings me to the main point of today's post - my fundraising for the 3-Day!

For a limited time, I'm offering some of my mad design skillz - FOR FREE - with a donation to my 3-Day account. Hey, it's even tax deductible! Do you need a business card, mommy card or social media card? Maybe a logo or monogram? Does your Etsy shop or blog need some sprucing up? Well now is your chance....and it's all for a great cause!

Click here for lots more info:If you don't need design you can donate anyway! Even $5 helps!


Stay tuned for another fundraising post later in the week. I'll be giving away some awesome, hand-made iPad bags to donors!

foot frustration part deux

Just thought I'd do an update to let y'all know that my foot tendonitis came back with a vengeance and it's put me in a bit of a funk.

I got some cortisone shots but haven't been able to move in well over a week. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly pain combined with lack of exercise can turn me into a hot mess.

I'm so cranky and tired. I have no interest in cooking or eating healthy. The small amount of exercise I've been doing has been half-hearted. I just want to eat. Oh and did I mention I'm walking 60 miles is 7 weeks?

I need to get some miles in and I suppose I need to work through the pain a little to get there. I can tell I'm on the's just really slow and really frustrating!!

Vent over! Carry on :)

Monday mix tape

How did it get to be August already? I've done nothing but work 16 hours a day for the last 7 days in row - including all weekend. I'm trying not to feel sorry for myself but I feel like crap after not exercising AT ALL. My eating hasn't been great but I maintained my loss and right now, that's a victory! I'm reigning it in and scheduling some non-negotiable exercise time this week. Clients can wait an hour. I've got to get some miles in. The 3-day is less than 3 months away!

Have y'all seen this new Nike campaign?

This message is so incredibly true and I'm so glad to see them putting something out there that real people can relate to. Way to go Nike.


Because I've been working so much, I have nothing else to report other than the latest version of my software so it's a short mix tape today. Have a great week!!
