Three Things Thursday

1. 5K Ugly Sweater Run on Saturday and I’m getting pretty excited!

Wednesday after work, I went to our site’s gym to work out until Kyle came to pick me up. It’s tiny but basically has what I need. Plus I had the whole place to myself.

I didn’t get to spend much time there, but I got in a quick abs and an upper body workout. Better than nothing, right?

When Kyle picked me up, we went to go ugly sweater hunting. Well, it must be off season kids cause we struck out. Remind me to set traps in Goodwill and the consignment store ahead of time. As we were heading towards home, empty handed, my mom texted me because she found this gem.

Hello you gorgeous beast of a sweatshirt. I’m going to add some stuff and I can’t wait to show you when I’m finished ๐Ÿ™‚

2. I’m a big fat liar.

So on Monday I told you that I wasn’t going to run until Saturday (my 5K Ugly Sweater Dash) to give my back more time.


Whelp, I ran yesterday cause I wanted to make sure my back could handle it. I took it easy and jogged 2.25 miles. And guess what? No pain! Woooo.

3. I eat too much candy.

My wittle sister was super nice and brought me candy from Dylan’s Candy Bar when she was in LA.ย I didn’t even know there was one in LA! I have only been to the one in NY.

She knows the way to my heart and diabetes. I really loved the strawberry lemonade sour belts and the sour farts. Yup. Sour farts. They basically taste like sour nerds = amazeballs. I bet you that my dad would say he likes sour farts too. FYI he’s never tried the candy.

Have you ever done an ugly sweater run? Are you going to do a holiday themed run this year?

What’s your favorite type of candy? Sweet and sour gummy thingys ๐Ÿ™‚

How bad do you want a sour fart? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Haha, have fun! I have a really good ugly xmas vest that I like to bust out this time of year. They had the ugly sweater run here last weekend I think, but I didn’t go. Should be fun!
    They do do a santa run here where everyone who registers gets a full santa suit and beard. That was fun! And random – for some reason Eric Estrada was there spectating.
    Good luck with your farts.

  2. There is most definitely a Dylan’s in LA and they are generous with the samples! I love all candy… chocolate, sour stuff, I don’t discriminate. One of my all time faves are the nerds ropes. Have you had those? They are basically nerds on a long twizzler. Amazing! Target has the most ridiculous onesies right now. Not quite an ugly sweater, but ugly enough if you’re desperate for some festive apparel ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. K I’m clearly living under a rock and not paying attention to the important things in life, e.g. candy. I LOVE nerds rope!!! I don’t think I’ve had one since middle school, but man those are delicious! LOL I LOVE onesies! That would have been an awesome idea, especially since it’s supposed to rain and be super cold.

  3. Ah so jealous! I wish we had an ugly swather run in Charlotte, I feel like it would be so much fun! Can’t wait to see the finished product- Pinterest has some amazing ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Girl, if it is candy I will eat it 99% of the time… there are few things I do not love (boston baked beans, those weird orange peanuts, black licorice, etc.) but those aren’t really candy in my opinion, they’re just dressed up fakers.

  5. Every year my friends and i do an ugly sweater Xmas party. This year I’m wearing a sweater I decorated myself. I got a plain sweater then raided the dollar store for decorations and bells and glued them on! I’ll have post a pic.
