Warrior Dash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm officially insane. 

Take me to the mental hospitol right now. 

I'll even check myself in. 

For some reason, I thought it was a good idea to sign up for this .  Do yourself a favor and go check out the website, otherwise you will not understand what I'm talking about.  For real.  Stop reading, click the link.

Go. Now.

Do you see this? Mud, fire, RUNNING?  Do you associate any of these words with my name?

Don't get me wrong, I think it looks like a freaking blast.  But it also looks super duper hard! 

I've decided I need to train.  Me and training equals running around the block (I did this yesterday) and going to the school to run stairs (I did this Saturday).  We will see if this "training" continues.  But I highly recomend continuing it self, if you don't want to fall over dead.

Mr. AP is doing it too.  There are prizes for the top 3 over all and the top 3 in different age groups.  He wants to be a top 3 of some kind.  I just don't want to be laped by the following start time.  I somehow convinced several of our friends to do it too (you guys are nuts!).  Us girls have decided to hang back and just have a good time.  A good time....but we still have to make it through 3 miles of trails and obstacles! Fire! Mud! Repelling off of a steep cliff!

Well, if I make it, I"ll be sure to post many muddy pictures.  Did I mention that you get beer, turkey legs (yay for me right?) and an awesome viking hat at the end? Plus live music.  It should be amazing.

Peace, Love and TRAINING!!

I have wanted a juicer for a while now (hello? Have you seen the Jack Lalane infomercial? Who wouldn't want to live to be 110?). Anyway, I asked for one for my birthday and to my surprise, I didn't get one. Come on people!

Well, now, I thank you for not granting my wish. After some research, I found that I don't want a Jack Lalane (something about it stealing the nutrients while it whirls the juice from the pulp). So, I figured if I'm going to do this, let's do this right! I went to the next step up ( cylindrical ?)

I ordered the juicer, a juice fasting bible (yep, we're talking fasting too) and a juice recipe book. (man I love/hate Amazon)

Stop. I started this post about 3 weeks ago. I would have gone on to say that the juicing was going great! I was doing it one to two times a day and it was really yummy and making me feel great! I hadn't gotten into a fast yet, but I was headed there. Again, stop.

Now, I have had a busy couple of weeks. Busy as in my cousin got married (hooray for the new Wads!), not just a day affair here people. We are talking a 5 day excursion to Washington. It was fabulous and fun and went off without a hitch. Needless to say, it was rather difficult to stay on track when I couldn't control my every meal. I was letting things slip. A little dairy here, a little pastry something there, before you know it, I am home and letting things continue to slip. This is bad news people.

For the record (the one you are all keeping on me about what I eat and don t eat), I have NOT eaten meat. And will not. I just don't want to or need to. However, I can't let things slip anymore. I have never claimed to be anal about this, but you put a little ranch in your salad and pretty soon there's cheese on there too. I wouldn't be too worried about this except it is really effecting the way that I feel. I have had horrible headaches, I've been super tired, and majorly lazy (ask Mr. AP, he will gladly tell you all about it). I am reverting to all the of the things I am trying to change!

This is serious people! I must get control and jump back on track. Tomorrow is a new day! Juice for breakfast! Bowels will move again! I will do the dishes!!

Peace Love and Juice
