Motiv Customer service, Christie Brinkley and other things that are awesome.

First of all, a big thank you to the most awesome customer service that is Motiv!  They absolutely rock and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

As you may know I was having some issues with my ring and I contacted them and they were on top of it right away.  They are not only sending me a new ring but they offered to call and explain the issues so I would understand what was going on.  No need Motiv, the fact that your customer service is so great and the product has features that I do love, I’m a happy camper and can’t wait to receive the new ring.  Once I do, I’ll be giving it a full review but your customer service team deserves a trip to Hawaii because they’re the best!

What is wrong with some of these internet trolls?  Someone actually said Christie Brinkley looked old.  Like, OLD.  Why not think of something else to call her, like attractive or smart or inspiring?  Nope you had to go and say she’s looking old.  Of course then they said but still pretty.  Really?

It’s okay though because Christie had the best comeback ever, she compared herself to wine!

I love her.  And trolls, if all you have in you is a backhanded compliment you may want to search your soul for some real substance.  That is all.

Kudos to the Detroit Free Press who every week highlights a runner from their marathon.

highlight runnerAnd these aren’t elite runners, these are just every day ordinary runners like you and me.  How cool is that?

And before I go I just wanted to pat myself on the back a little bit.  I’m taking a little break from running for a week or two but I’m still walking occasionally and this week, I also did yoga, did some weight training and rode my bike and even when I start running again, this time, I’ll continue all of those things.

Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!  Got any plans?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day eve

Happy St. Patrick’s Day one day early.  MacGyver and I are not big drinkers and we’re not big crowd lovers either so we’ll probably stay at home and watch netflix.  I know, I know, we are wild and crazy.  Don’t hate.

On Wednesday night I made this lovely dessert for MacGyver,

Cheesecake

And it was really good too.  It was my first attempt at making my own cheesecake and I’d say I nailed it.  Is it wrong that I’m thinking of having a piece at 10 in the morning?

It’s still a bit cold here and I’m loving it.  When I ran this morning it was 44 degrees.  I didn’t really have a run planned today, in fact, I was going to take the day off but I ran 3 little miles.  You can hardly blame me it was beautiful outside.

3 miles

It’s so beautiful that I’m thinking of playing hooky.  No wait, that’s a lie.  I’m not thinking about it at all.  😉  Happy Friday!

What are you’re plans for St. Patricks Day?

Are you running in a race?

It’s Friday, time for flu, flubs and fails.

MacGyver go a coupon for a free pizza for his birthday from Grimaldi’s.  In our opinion they have the best pizza around.  Unfortunately I’m not supposed to eat it because my body doesn’t do gluten but fortunately, they have salads.

Do you want to know how I feel when MacGyver is scarfing down pizza and I’m sitting there with a small salad?

Nobody REALLY likes salad!

Exactly.  Just like that.

So, that’s why I ate pizza instead and took two benadryl tablets to help with the reaction and ward off the evil gluten backlash.  It wasn’t the best plan but it half worked.

Or maybe it didn’t but I’ll never know because I was in a coma by 8PM.

The good news is, MacGyver and I actually left the house without wearing masks.  Since almost everyone we know either has, or has had the flu, we are terrified of catching it.  The latest reports now say that you can catch it just from breathing the air near an infected person.  I don’t know how accurate that is but I do know that is perpetuates our level of fear to mach 5.

Before we went to dinner I tried once again to use the Tyme iron that I bought. I literally followed along with the Youtube video in the hopes that I could at least end up with some semblance of what they were showing.

Nope.  Either I’m an idiot or this thing absolutely does not work on my hair.  Suggestions?

The good news is I’m not the only one failing this week.  Check out these two photos from Vanity Fair.

Can you spot the extra leg?

Oprah 3 hands

Oprah has extra hands!

It’s kind of ridiculous to focus on my flaws when Reese Witherspoon is perfectly fine with her three legs and Oprah has obviously put her three hands to good use.

Have a happy Friday y’all.

How was your week?
