Mid-week words

  • Just got some new tank tops from Adidas and I LOVE THEM!!! I usually wear a tank with a shelf bra, and then put a shirt over than, whether it's for training clients or for my own workouts. Well, my tanks (purchased 3 years ago) have seen better days. But bye bye to icky and hello to sleek and cute! (I'll post links later...)
  • Kids are back in school and they love their teachers and their classes -- WHEW! I know that the newness can and will wear off, but at least they're starting out on the right foot...feet...whatever!
  • Reading Potatoes Not Prozac and learning lots about sugar sensitive people. Plan to try having a potato (with skin!) before bed and see how that works -- the book claims it improves both tryptophan and serotonin levels through some mysterious body process. I'll let you know if I feel anything or if it seems funded by the National Potato Farmers Association! :)
  • I have two races coming up. The Mather Mud Run is a 5 mile run with obstacles (yes, including mud) that takes place on September 5th. Then on the 7th (Labor Day) I'm doing a 10 mile trail race in Auburn. It sure feels good to have my running mojo back!

Waiting with bated breath for the tank top photo.

I've heard about the power of the potato...I'm thinking it will work, but let us know for sure :)

I can not wear those tanks with even a shelf bra in them. They never have enough support for my girls :( I'm glad you treated yourself to some new ones.

Hooray for the kids liking school so far. Ash is all excited over it. It's funny how many people she knows from Springview. I'm happy with the school too :)

Enjoy your week!

Nicely done on the title. :o)

Carbs have some kind of interaction with Seratonin releases, and Potato is high GI complex, so perhaps that helps, as it will create a more sustainable Insulin release, so that could have something to do with it.

I'm glad things are good with you.

Take care and best wishes.

Well, what's the verdict on the potato thing?
