Today was another extravagant non exciting day in the life of mediocre Mandi. I was watching the clock at work and even contemplated going outside to watch the grass grow during my lunch break. I ate my sandwich and wheat thins instead. After work I decided to take advantage of the 65* weather with which … Continue reading

New Month Resolutions

Why only limit our Resolutions to New Year’s? Tomorrow is February 1st. Time to make some new month resolutions. 1. Add some spice and pizzazz to the writing in my blog. And I totally did the jazz hands. 2. I want to run more miles this month. January I ran a total of 58.25 miles. … Continue reading

Back to Normal

Alright, so I was really looking forward to getting back to normal. That’s exactly what happened. I woke up and did my normal morning routine and went to work. Breakfast was just some coffee and Chobani lemon greek yogurt. I love that stuff. I was excited for my lunch time meal! I bought a wheat … Continue reading

Case of the Mondays

Well Thursday evening Bruce and I were talking about where to take his niece to eat. No matter where we went, we wanted some oysters on the half shell and since we’re on the coast of South Carolina, there were several good places to go. We settled on a restaurant to which we’d never been. … Continue reading

Upscale Downtown

This week has been odd. Usually my life really is not this busy or exciting, which means that if this were an ordinary week I would probably be posting two times a day and you would know almost every detail of my mundane life. Where did I leave off? Oh, yes! Sunday. The day with … Continue reading

Ah! Crazy!

Sorry! These past few days have been absolutely crazy busy! Today after work will not be any different. Unfortunately it will probably be tomorrow evening before I’m able to give a real full post! So.. Please stick with me. 🙂 Have a great day!

Weekend Recap

I don’t recommend going to see it. The acting was fairly cheesy and some of the scenes were hardly believable. Saturday … Continue reading

That Run Was Awesomesauce.

Just like I promised myself, I ran today. My plan was to leave work, walk my dog then go to the gym. So… I got off work, walked my dog but I didn’t go to the gym. I was kind of short on time (and I didn’t want to get caught up in the moment … Continue reading

Ugh. I hate when that happens.

I love working out. Okay, who am I kidding. I love the feeling I have after working out. Something magical does happen when I’m working out. I feel a rush of energy and I feel like I’m doing something so incredibly good for my body. That being said, I would love if I lived in … Continue reading

Half Marathon

It was my first half marathon ever. Actually, my first race ever. Go big or go home. I’ve been running for about 4 1/2 years now and I’ve never done a race. There are a couple of races that take place annually here in town, but I wanted to do a half. Something about that … Continue reading
