HEY PEEPS! {Do these pants make my butt look big?}


Weight.
It's not a beautiful thing.
I've gained some.
And
lost some.

Friday I {slogged} slow jog 5.7 miles.
I love to jog.
Really, I do.

It's gonna be awhile before I'm back up to speed.
(There may be some increase in activity on the Richter Scale caused by my jogging.)

This was my view.

I love that I can go a few blocks from my house and have this kind of view.

The snow didn't even bug me much.

Then I get into civilization.

Most beautiful view.
(Seriously 1 minute from my house!)
I remember when this was just an alalfa field.

Hopefully I'll increase my speed.
Hopefully I'll decrease my time.
Hopefully the snow will be gone soon.
Hopefully my butt will shrink!

I wish I could get into running. That would be so good for me, but it is just not in me. I also have a fear of my weak ankles twisting or snapping in two. Enjoy your jog!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

What a wonderful place to slog!
Good for you, keep it up.

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

you go girl! beautiful scenery!

Cherie said...

Way TO Go!! You are awesome I don't think right now I could even slog a mile!
You have such beautiful views where you live - I always enjoy visiting!!

music notes said...

I don't slog, jog, or run. Sometimes swalk (slow walk).
(I made that word up)

but I do give high-fives for people that are better than me when it comes to any kind of exercising. Good job!

Enjoy watching conference :) sorry you had to miss it due to work.

I think joining me by eating some pepperoni out of a bag, will help.

gigi said...

Your view is amazing and if i had one like that I might jog too!! You go girl!!!

g.suzie said...

Hey, Tsunami where did you get those pants cause that butt looks
pretty tiny! Do they come in pink,
I might need to get me some so I
can have a cute little 'bunny butt'.
And wow 5.7 miles IMPRESSIVE are u training for a marathon or what!
Luv ya,
sj

T said...

I think I've done 5.7 miles... if you add up every time I've run in the past ten years... or so...

jen said...

I'm in this same boat--butt too big and slogging through my old routines. It's hard to believe I've run two marathons. That body is so in the past. Sigh.

Connie said...

Did I read that right? 5.7 miles! My dear friend, you rock! Your butt will not only shrink, you'll have the body of a 20 year old!
What beautiful scenery! Beats running on an old treadmill even on a cold, snowy, day!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Oh man, where can I get me some panties like that!?

And I'm impressed you brought your camera on your slog!!

At least you slog! I'm more of a falker. (fast walker)

But that word just sounds wrong, you know?

Julie Harward said...

Thank goodness for jogging! I cannot jog though, all I get from it is a sore back and a rd face! But..I can walk about as fast as some joggers jog..and I really need to get out there everyday! Beautiful view there at the end! ;D

Mildred said...

Way to go! I hope to at least walk this Spring. You sure have some pretty views there.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

I've walked your route and it is so beautiful. I am so glad I can visit your blog when I'm feeling a little homesick!

Keep it up, and when the weather turns and you don't care to slog in the snow, I love Leslie Sansone, "Walk Away the Pounds." A couple of her 3 to 5 mile workouts helped me with my exercise goals while in the burg.

You make me laugh about the weather here. It's much more mild, Friday was like 72 degrees. We are experiencing a blustery Spring; rainy, gray and light winds, not just sun!!!

Yvonne said...

Nice to have some beautiful views when you are out "slogging"--love the word ; )

Good for you getting out and running--I love it. 5.7 miles is not an easy run--way to go.

Happy Mom said...

5.7 miles is impressive, girl! You go!

Brenda said...

Cheers to YOU--that is awesome!
What a beautiful view! Way to go!

just call me jo said...

No wonder the peeps panties are so small--5.7 miles is much. I'd have to crawl home. Ah, Idaho. I love the vistas.

Barbaloot said...

Wow---5.7!! There's gonna be some serious shrinkage if that's the mileage you're putting in:)

Love the view. I'm more of a treadmill runner...but I might be persuaded to go outside if I had such a peaceful-looking place to run.

Nana said...

Hey, I have started slogging too. Mostly walking w/ a slog here and there. Hopefully I will shrink a little.

Vern said...

I only did a little over 2 miles this morning and about passed out. 5.7 is what I'm working UP to! You're an inspiration!

Lisa Loo said...

I've thought about slogging 5.7 miles.......then I went back to bed from the sheer exhaustion of thinking of such a great distance. Yeesh!

The picture and the word slog get you a 9.5 on my richter scale meter thing a ma gig........

LKP said...

i KNOW how you feel entirely.
great peeps photo! :D
p.s. i miss that view!!!!!
p.p.s. i miss YOU!!!
p.p.p.s. i was talking with my MR and we both agreed that if you and i had met each other while our family lived in the REX, well we're pretty dang certain i would've REFUSED to move away!
p.p.p.p.s. happy a beautiful day, my friend. ::hugs::

LKP said...

that should have read "HAVE a beautiful day" lol. my brain is sloggin'. :D

tammy said...

I hate hate hate hate jogging. Even slowly. At least you have a great view.

blueviolet said...

I wouldn't mind doing a little butt shrinking of my own, especially if I could do it while enjoying a view like yours!

Krista said...

You are too awesome. I'm with Furry Bottoms - no running for me. Plus I'm large chested and well, no one needs to see that amount of bounce. Very nice scenery!

lifeinredshoes said...

Nice view...good luck!

~Wyatt~Brittney~Brecken~ said...

I need to do some slogging too! Right now I'm lucky if I can lug my big belly just out to the car without getting winded! LOVE the pic by the way. . .you never cease to make me laugh!

Emmy said...

Now that is a view! How awesome to have the temple so close to your home.

Heather said...

You are so funny!! Way to go!!

You do have a great view!

Ann Marie said...

LOVE the view.
Hate you for being able to slog that far.
Ok.. I don't really hate you.
I would just LOVE to be able to do that right now.
Keep it up girl!!!

Doran & Jody said...

Oh....I wish I were there to run with you!!

Mikki said...

Gorgeous, that pic of the temple. Maybe it would inspire me to slog. I hate running. I'm sure I don't like slogging too. Good on you though. Good luck with it!

M-Cat said...

Way to go! Slogging is better than nothing and I am uber proud of you! Remember, running is the biggest calorie burn for your buck!

Laura Lynn said...

Great job and great view of the Temple - lucky!

Farmer Gal said...

Nice view! Here's to hoping that both the snow and the pounds melt away! 5.7 miles... That's impressive!
