Deja Vu

I may be crazy but I did something that I wanted to do this year but couldn't.


I registered for the Déjà Vu Half & 5K. It's the Louisiana Marathon's take on Disney's Glass Slipper Challenge. Run the 5K Saturday and the Half on Sunday. At least that's what I'm attempting to do.There's a quarter marathon & the full but that's too much for me. Let's hope I can stay well & injury free. It's not until January 2016 but there was a deal for early registration. Worse case scenario, I walk all of it.

Tuesday  morning I got up early & did a weight workout.

It's been awhile & now I'm sore.

Awhile back I bought these at Trader Joe's

This is what Dean likes to call an experimental item. They are really good! Plop it frozen in a skillet & 5 mins. later it's done. It taste like chicken but it's like a burger. The best part is it's 150 calories. I'll definitely buy them again.

Have y'all seen these things?

They're facial razors for women. I've heard a lot of talk about them so I ordered some. The order came with 3 but this was yet another item that was lost between the time it left the facility & got to me so I guess they were making up for how long it took & sent me extras. It's like a little exfoliator plus it gets all the little fuzzy hair. They work great!

My tour of Mardi Gras flavored things continues.

On my way home from work the other day I stopped at Fat Cow & got the king cake shake. It's really good. They make it with ice cream & a shake thingy. Not like what they have at McDonalds. I don't even want to know how many calories it is.

Yesterday morning I was planning to run. My alarm didn't go off but Dean woke up a little later & woke me up. I had zero interest in getting out of bed so I didn't. When I got home from work the weather was nice, temps in the high 60's so I went then.

This morning I got up & walked with Sheri & Kitzia. We did 3.2 miles. 

What's going on with y'all?



  1. More King Cake stuff to tempt me! ;) You will do great running the 5k and the half. You're a veteran runner now!! I have a lovely ear infection in one ear and sinus infection. I had to break down and go to the doc yesterday....

  2. Good for you, signing up for the event next January! I had really been on a roll with exercising and eating right until yesterday. I had some blood work done late morning and started to feel kind of icky from mid afternoon on. I don't know why it is that when you don't feel well, you (or at least me) get cravings for all the wrong stuff. Needless to say, I've been eating Lemon Oreos and choc. Kisses! I didn't even feel like going to the gym today! I'm thinking dear hubby needs to go buy me some more supplies!

  3. nice work! half the battle is just committing to it.
