Sunday Sentiments... Back from the DFW, Random Stuff, and Chocolate/ PB Mug Cake (Oh Mylanta)




Hey cats!

Back from Dallas and ready to roll!


The highlights-

Having all of Six Flags over Texas to ourselves.    Yes.    Advo rented out the entire park for leasdership team.   

Right?   



So yes, imagine just rolling up to an awesome coaster that would otherwise have a 2 hour wait....   Basically the most stressful decision involved was "hmmm....which seat do I want?"


Full on Spark/ Rehydrate bar/ OTG bar.    Yes, please.  





Meeting these two... whom I've "known" for two plus years.   But we've never met in real life.





We connected over this here world wide web.   All three of us love the Advo and all three of us do the bloggy thing.   It was only natural that we became internet BFF's. 

Lauren  and Niki, you guys are awesome.




Becoming even more obsessed with Rich Froning.


He basically walked on stage on his hands...



And then proceeded to complete  "heavy" Isbabel.  Which means he did 30 snatches at 225 lbs in 4 minutes and change.    Fellow Crossfit kool aid drinkers... you know how crazy this is.





Spent some time with some amazing ladies.



And learned a whole lotta new stuff.







Absolutely amazing.   


Pss-   Wanna have your mind blown?




Mix a packet of this with 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk, spray coffee mug with cooking spray, microwave for 2 minutes, flip onto plate, top with 1 tbsp natural nut butter.  

Oh Lordy.    350 ish calories and a truck load of protein.


What else?


Weekend Workouts?

Running.

A whole bunch.  
Yes.   

Oh and look who's back?

#RunnerDog back in action.  (what, what?)



Speaking of Running...

WHEN are Rehydrate Gels coming back?   Anyone?  Anyone?  


Next group challenge starts the Tuesday after Labor Day.    Yes.  Yes.   

Come play with us.   


I'll leave you with this.   


Don't you love?



Talk soon,

10 Things. From 20,000+ Feet Above




1.   I miss you guys profusely.   

Like hard core.    Turns out July is the busiest month in the history of the world.   I feel like I've barely had time to pee.    Basically.    But it's kinda my own fault.
   Wanna know what I've been up to?   The Insta will fill ya in.      Not on the Insta?  Ride your prehistoric dinosaur on over there and get yourself an account asap. 
 It's basically the new blog.  And the new Facebook.  
  Find me-   Advorunner.  
 And let's be best friends.





2.      Who else is joining us in Dallas/ Ft Worth, y'all!?  



An amazing event.  Always.    I'm pretty much DYING to hear the new product release.   Oh and to see my Crossfit boyfriend, Rich Froning.   

     If you're there,  I wanna hear all about it and I'll probably be stalking you on the Insta.    Don't be scared.




3.    Who else is in the heart of summer marathon training?   

  Eeek.    My training has been Slim Shady at best.   Still fitting in the miles, so don't cry for me Argentina.    But still.      Remember how I bite off more than I can chew sometimes?   I think I did that.      Just now.    And my whole life.   But we knew that.



4.   Speaking of marathon training.... WHEN is my  Rehydrate  Gel gonna be back in stock? 
   I can't live like this and am legit openly hoarding the little stash that I have left.

Part of me thinks it's actually discontinued and those Advo peeps are gonna announce some kind of new life-changing replacement tomorrow night.      Anyone else have this theory?  





5.    You guys, this combo is Off the #ChizzaneDoe.





No idea why it's the best thing ever.  It just is.

Iced green tea.   Green apple Spark.

The End.



6.       WHO is up for a mini cleanse????    

 Going down on Monday.   I'm due.    Haven't done a mini cleanse yet???  It's all the rage.


Go check out my Insta page for the specific deets.


  3 days.   No big deal.     You can do anything for 3 days.   

From the product graveyard....

You need:

 6 Probiotic Restore
3 Fiber Drinks
6 Omegapex (I usually take more when I'm feeling haggard)
6 Herbal Cleanse tablets (3 packs)
Spark


It's going down on Monday.     And like Flo Rida said... It's Going Down for Real...





7.    Speaking of the Flo Rida...

What songs are you guys loving these days?   

Speaking of songs, a little birdie keeps telling me I need Apple Music.  

Is this true?   

And does the thought of not having your ITunes library on your phone at all times give you a heart attack?  

Cuz it does me.



8.    I've had a handful of requests for some #Runnerdog action lately.  

He's still here, folks.  




And he misses you too.  Stay tuned for more pics and shenanigans of that goofball.   Just like the olden days.
ps-- He's had a wig busting since this pic.  Unfortunately, they've turned him into a poodle temporarily.   
   I pretty much thought they gave me the wrong dog.  
Not even really kidding.



9.  Ummm... KEEP's fall line went live today.  

 I'm way pumped about the anti-bullying KIND campaign.  Seriously.  Love everything about this.



And this...

Oh and this...


And this...


This whole initiative makes me happy.     As much as I love the movie....real life mean girls terrify me.   One ring leader and an impressionable group of followers, no matter how big or small, and your sweet baby's life can be a living hell in the blink of an eye.  
     Luckily we haven't had to deal with this and I pray we never do.    As I hope you don't either.    
But as a mama bear of two girls, it's a scary thought.     Mama bear's, I know you relate.


10.      I know this is a super short post but I just felt the need to say hi.

 And tell you that I miss you and that life is gonna settle down here in a hot second and I'll be back to more regular posting.   Just like the good old days.   
In the meantime,  I hope your summer has been magical and funderful. 
   Even though these kiddos go back to school next week, I refuse to let summer go.       8 more weeks of solid sunshine would be fabulous.





Love you, miss you, mean it!
