She’s Dancing Like Cinderella

I wanted to share this beautiful song with you all, for the daughters and dad’s. I think this song is just BEAUTIFUL! Skinny Bride I think that you should use this!!! Please watch it will MAKE YOUR FRIDAY!

>>I see a lot of new readers here, WELCOME, thanks for reading!!!!


Happy FRIDAY friends! I am so excited that this week is over, because I have such an fun weekend planned. I slept in until 7am this morning, felt so nice. I did Morning Flow #1 with Dawnelle first thing form yogadownload.com. WOW what a session. This by far is the hardest session that I have done, lots of backbends. It was a lot faster in pace then any of downloads I have done. I think this weekend I will have to do a 45 minute session for sure! I can’t believe I have done 5 days of Yoga this week, man I am becoming an addict:)


Because I woke up so late, I decided to have a bowl of mix and match cereal.

The Loot: 1/2 c of Heart to Heart,Fiber One Shredded Wheat. and Kashi GoLean. With 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder(hopefully this will help with keeping me full!).


I added blueberries, and 1/2 a banana with a spoonful of Barney Butter!


With a cup of black coffee, with the King Himself! 


I have no run planned today because I have an 18miler tomorrow morning so I plan on being intentional about resting my body. How many rest days off do you give to yourself?

Weekend Plans

  • Friday Girls Night Out to PF Chains and Shopping.
  • Saturday 18 miler at 4am!
  • Saturday 10am Farmers Market
  • Saturday 11:30-2pm Women’s Luncheon
  • Saturday Grocery Shopping with Skinny Bride
  • Saturday Night Babysitting
  • Sunday Church& Teaching Kickboxing- most of the day will be cleaning and prepping for the week I am sure!


P.S. Make sure to get your comment in for some FREE BBQ SAUCE!!! Also Bella Eats is giving away a bottle too!!!

4am?!?!?! YIKES!! You will be done before I start :)

I usually take 2 days off of running... sometimes I try to do things on those days, sometimes I take the full day off (like yesterday!)

M said...

We are a Kashi family here! LOVE it! Good luck with the run...go strong like you always do! Enjoy the weekend! :)

Denise said...

4am!! I thought I was bad waking up at 5 on the weekends to get my long run in. That's even too early for me! Get some sleep tonight!

Oz Runner said...

love that SCC song...have a good run.

Sheena said...

The breakfast looks so yummy and so satisfying! And I have to agree with Tyler, 7 am is sleeping in? I mean I do usually wake up earlier than that, but when I allow myself to sleep in I don't get up until after noon.

Anyways, I make myself take one day off, tho there have been a few weeks where I have allowed myself two days off. Tomorrow is my rest day as well since I will be spending the whole day traveling.

Take care sweetie and have a great weekend!

I hope you have a gorgeous day! I rest 1-2 days each week but I still take walks because otherwise I feel like I'm gonna lose it! I'm so glad you love yoga! Those backbends are killer!

Matt said...

My long run is Sunday! I can't wait!

I usually take a rest day every 10 days or so.

RunningLaur said...

Wow, 4 am?!? Good luck, and be careful in the dark!

Lauren said...

Love that song! Especially moving when you know the story behind it too. :(
Good luck on your crazy long run. I am going to try for a new PR tomorrow with a 7 miler.
I do have a question that I am hoping you may be able to help me with. I am in the market for a heart rate monitor and wanted to know your opinion on a standard but good one to start off with?
Thanks and wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Leah said...

Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL song! It almost just made me tear up!

On my list of songs my Dad and I are going to dance to "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw.

Have a great weekend!

I love that coffee mug, haha. I know you posted about your run already but I hope it was awesome! Ridiculously early for 18 miles but it definitly gets it out of the way!
