Farts Are Funny

Potty humor to come… But before I ruin your appetite, I gotta post about afternoon activities and mah dinner! 

Dog Fun 

After work today Ryan and I entertained Sadie by taking her to the dog park before swinging by PetSmart to pick up some chews for the pup. 

Hooray for Dog Park Fun!

Take One

Take Two

As always Sadie enjoyed playing multiple rounds of fetch. 

Air Sadie

"Throw the Baaall!"

When the sun started to set, we headed to PetSmart where Sadie modeled the latest in doggie fashion.

 By the time we got home we were hungry! I knew dinner needed to come together quickly to satisfy our rumblin’ tummies. 


My favorite way to enjoy vegetables is to roast them in the oven with a lil’ olive oil, salt and pepper or garlic salt. It seems like this tried and true way of preparing vegetables works on almost any veggie. 

Roasted Cauliflower + Zucchini

Tonight I roasted a whole bunch of cauliflower and zucchini to enjoy along with al fresco sundried tomato chicken sausage. 

The veggies and sausage were a great combination and the flavors really complimented each other.

Fiber One Bars = Lots O’ Farts  

Following a discussion about Fiber One bars today, my friend send me a hysterical link to one person’s experience after eating Fiber One bars. 

Fiber One Granola Bars


Let’s just say things got a lil’ stinky: 

Step aside Kashi GoLEAN Crunch, and say hello to Fiber One Bars. Never, ever in my entire life, have a dropped as much ass as I do after eating these. I mean, check out the nutrition label, it speaks for itself! 

I’ve done some research and evidently it’s the chicory root that causes the gas. I don’t know about all that, but I do know that the human body is not designed to do what it does after eating these bars. 

When I think back on the top ten loudest and longest farts of my life, I can honestly say 10 of them happened all at once about 2 hours after eating a Fiber One bar. 

I conducted an unscientific test to see if others were affected like I was. One person told me they farted so loud that they woke them self up in the middle of the night. Another told me that her drug-free childbirth was much more comfortable than her brush with the Fiber One bar.” 

Toot, Toot!


I apologize to any of my more mature blog readers who do not find potty humor as hysterical as I do. 🙂

Race Time Predictor

This weekend I discovered something. I do not particularly like regular hummus. Blasphemy, huh?

I think it’s bland and needs a little “oomph” to taste good. What I do love, however, is flavored hummus!

My lunch today featured a combination of roasted red pepper and jalepeño cilantro hummus on a whole wheat sandwich thin with portobello mushrooms.

Lunch Time

Hummus & Mushroom Sandwich + Roasted Asparagus

On the side I enjoyed roasted asparagus, sugar-free strawberry Jello and a handful of Planters honey roasted peanuts.

I ❤ Peanuts!

Lunch was gooooood.

Race Time Predictor

Have you run a 5k or other running race recently or timed yourself on your latest run?

Keep that time in your head, and click here to enter it into a “Race Time Predictor” to check out your predicted time for other races, including a half marathon, marathon and 100 mile race! 😀

Pretty neat, huh?

Do you think the Race Time Predictor is accurate?

I think it’s a pretty decent tool and it seemed to be pretty accurate in predicting my times for various race distances.

For me, my pace is pretty similar whether I run a 5k or 10k race… I don’t run for time and literally tell myself to “slow down and enjoy the experience” when I run in a race. Still, I think the race predictor is pretty neat. Based on my last 5 mile race time, I should finish Saturday’s 10k race in 54:22. We’ll see if it’s accurate!

Sch-Weaty Beast

I used to never sweat. I would go to the gym, work out, and my face might perspire a little, but that would be it.

These days I find myself sweating a lot more.

Prevent the Stink!

My face still sweats the most, but I also sweat a lot between my “girls” and my stomach is almost always sweatin’ up a storm. I feel like my workouts have only improved and become more challenging, so what gives? Why is my face redder and wetter than ever?

Do you sweat a lot? What exercise makes you sweat the most?

I get the most sweaty during a long run or a spinning class.

According to FitSugar, “Fit people sweat more efficiently by sweating sooner in their workout, when their body temperature is lower.

Well, that might help explain why I now break a sweat within five minutes of exercising, rather than at the very end of my workout. I thought my body was becoming less equipped to handle good workouts, so this was quite a relief. All those super-sweaty people at the gym are fit, too! 😀


Today I worked up a sweat at BodyPump. My favorite instructor is getting married on Friday so we’re going to have substitute teachers for the next several classes.

I think this might be a great opportunity for me to change up my strength training routine. If you have any suggestions for great weight-lifting workouts, feel free to send ’em my way!

After BodyPump, I came home and leashed up Sadie for a 25 minute run, followed by a 15 minute walk.

Runnin' Buddy

I am loving this nice weather! It felt great to run outside. I feel like I’ve been cooped up in the gym for too long!


A couple sweet lil’ guys popped up in my breakfast this morning.

PB Chips

Sadie clearly wanted a taste.

After going through her trick repertoire (sit, down, high five, shake), she got a few peanut butter chips to enjoy.

"Okay, I did it. Now gimme!"

I used the peanut butter chips in a breakfast roll up.

Wednesday's Breakfast

My breakfast roll up included:

  • Whole wheat tortilla
  • Greek yogurt
  • Peanut butter chips
  • Apple

I enjoyed the rest of the apple and Greek yogurt cup as well.

Hope you’re all enjoying your hump day so far. 😀
