It's Already Friday!

This week went by really fast for me! 

So, the other day my friend posted a picture on Instagram. She was in Dallas at The American Girl store with her 6 year old niece. They were eating lunch there. She took a picture of the person sitting by them. 

I just don't even know what to say. I think when the girls use the infamous phrase "I can't even!" this is what they mean. First off it's a man. Dressed like his doll. As my friend Andrea would say - marinate on that. A MAN that has a doll. He's also dressed like his doll. Notice the pony holder on his wrist. Just like the teenagers. Well, except for the fact that he has no hair for a ponytail. I'm a little confused by that. I mean if you're a man dressing like you're doll wouldn't you shave the beard & grow out your hair? When I showed Dean the picture he wanted to know why he wasn't arrested or asked to leave. I guess technically he wasn't doing anything wrong. Except you know being extremely creepy. That looks like a purse next to him. Or maybe it's a diaper bag for his doll. I would say it's a murse but I don't think anything zebra print can qualify as man anything. I can't stop saying it. HE HAS A DOLL. When I first saw the picture I was speechless. Do I laugh? Am I appalled? I don't even know! On one hand he could be a super creepy child molester that uses his doll to entice little girls to get into his plain white child getter van (yes I stereotype, sue me) or maybe he's just a little (or a lot) mentally off & needs help & we should all feel sorry for him. I mean surely you have to be more than just a little off to go out in public like this where you know everyone is looking at you.. 

Then I started thinking about my friends niece. What must she have thought? I can only imagine if Logan saw something like this. His head is already on a swivel so he doesn't miss anything. I know that kid & there would be lots of staring & questions. Oh, the questions. Why is that man dressed like a girl? Why does that man have a doll? All said very loudly because Logan doesn't know what it means to be discreet. Again - I can't even.

Monday when I got home from work I did a leg workout. I didn't really want to but I did it. 

I'm not as worried about the calorie burn since I ran that morning. I'm more interested in strengthening my legs.

Tuesday morning I did arms & put a meal together in the crock pot. It's called Crock Pot Salsa Chicken. I got the recipe from Peanut Butter Runner's blog. 

Crockpot Salsa Chicken
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper
1 jar of salsa (any brand/style you prefer, at least 12 ounces or more)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained and rinsed
1 can chopped green chiles

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Pour jar of salsa over chicken and add in black beans, corn and chiles. Cook on low for about 6 hours or until chicken easily falls apart. Shred by using two forks to pull chicken apart and mix everything together.
I used 3 chicken breasts & a can of Rotel instead of green chiles. This is my kind of recipe. Not a ton of ingredients & super easy. I can open cans & pour stuff in a crock pot like nobody's business. Peanut Butter Runner ate hers over rice. The first night I had it like soup. 
In the winter I plan to add chicken broth to make it more soupy. I ate it one day on top of a baked sweet potato. That was delicious too. Last night I just ate it plain. 
Wednesday morning I ran.
Those good low humidity days are gone. I've decided that I definitely prefer a dry heat. There really is a difference. 
Thursday was arm day. 
I was shaking by the time I was done. It's about time to get some heavier weights. I've been online a lot trying to figure out what to get. There's so much out there it's really confusing. 
YAY, today is Friday!!! Logan is spending the night with us tonight so I won't do my long run until Sunday. I started to make today a rest day. It's nice to have 2 days off before my long run but I know there will be some not great eating since Logan will be with us so I just got up & ran. I may even get to have a Friday night mango margarita!

I was a little faster today. That's always a good sign. I want to consistently be below an 11:00 min./mi. average.

What are y'alls plans for the weekend?



  1. Oooh that crock pot recipe sounds delicious...and on top of a baked sweet potato! Even better! Thanks for sharing - I'm going to try it! :) Great job with your running/workouts this week!

  2. Oh. My. Word. I can't even. ;) I truly have no words. Cohen would have made a fool of me with all the very loud questions, too!

    The salsa chicken looks good!!
