some newbies for friday

I took yesterday as an "unplanned rest day".
So no workouts.

Yesterday was also filled with some NEWBIES!

NEWBIE #1 - a baby

Matteo called to tell me that my SIL had her baby! I figured I could take a "rest day" to go meet the little guy...

Garrett Alexander

By the time we got home, I was too hungry to run.  
So Matteo made dinner....while I shaved my legs.

Eating & shaved legs are more important, right?
Don't judge.

NEWBIE #2 - a guest post
For those of you interested in fashion & shoes...I did my first *guest post* on a fabulous blog yesterday! Angie at The Hotness Your Momma Warned You About is turning 30 & asked that I do a post geared towards shoes - specifically a hot 30 list. If you'd like to check it here!

NEWBIE #3 - nutrition tips
More importantly - have you checked out the
new MyPlate vs. the old MyPyramid?

so last year...

ta da!
Incase you ever want to read up on the Dietary Guidelines, it's really informative at 112 pages long.

My opinion? I feel that the MyPlate is a much better visual representation of portion sizes when comparing the different food groups. Granted, individuals need to have an understanding of what exactly a portion size of what they're eating, before they can go "comparing".

NEWBIE #4 - a race

I registered for my first 1/2 marathon yesterday! Granted, when the race does roll around, it probably won't be my actual first marathon, since others are on my radar for the end of this year. But nonetheless...I registered for one.


NEWBIE #5 - a few votes

I got some more likes on my shoes video!

I could really use a BUTTLOAD's my competition.

Please help!


And that concludes the Newbies for Friday - normally my Thursdays aren't so thrilling.

Enjoy your Friday! Halleluyer it is the weekend!
