What? You don’t ask your Dad to take pictures of you “running” with your hair curled and smiling? Oh, I guess that’s just me…

I’ve been trying to cut back on the sugar lately, but then I found these.Β  Sunny Seeds are seriously addicting and I’ve gone through 3 containers in the past 2 weeks. They sit next to my computer and I can’t help but eat them when I blog! Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories allowed me to write a blog post for her about my new obsession, and I wanted to get some action shots! My Dad and I dropped my Mom off at the airport this morning and I asked if he would take “a few” pictures of me running outside.Β  Mom gets to go to Canada this week!

Here are a few action shots for your amusement…

Thought my arms looked nice in this pic, but my hair is all over the place!

It’s difficult getting a good picture while trying to run across the street, smile and look at a camera without running into a car!

You don’t prepare for a run by curling your hair and getting a headshot? πŸ™‚ I ordered the skirt that goes with this Brooks tank last week on sale and free shipping online. It should come this week, but I’m scared to wear it! I’m hoping I fall in love with it and can wear it to races and hopefully pass a few boys!

My BIC Bands came in the mail a few days ago!! I love the “skinny minnie” size, which is the smallest out of all the sizes and I’ve almost completely worn out my black sparkle, so I ordered two new ones! This one is pink with green outline.

LOVE this one! Green sparkle! I just wish I could get a PINK skinny minnie sparkle band! Wouldn’t that be perfect??

Today I need to finish my grad work and run tonightΒ  (since I missed the cooler weather this morning because I left at 6 to take Mom to the airport). I should probably stop posting pictures of myself so you don’t get sick of me!! πŸ™‚

  1. Your photos look great! Your dad did a pretty good job as photog πŸ˜‰ Occasionally, I’ll have my wife take photos of me but I rarely put them on my blog because I just don’t photograph well… I guess I’ll stick to photos of my kids and food πŸ˜‰

    Those sunny seeds look good. I may have to stay away from them or I might end up going through a case in a week.

  2. I love it! My dad would definitely do this for me too. Your hair does look amazing even in the one where it’s all over the place. I may have to try the sunny seeds-they remind me of Reese’s pieces with the colors.

    Love the sparkle band! The photo with you and the sunflower seeds is adorable haha– I’ve gotta get my hands on some of those πŸ˜‰

    I’m so glad I came across your blog πŸ˜€

  4. Did you do your hair yourself??? It looks awesome – I am awful with a curling iron and can never get my hair to stay!

    Love that tank! I think you inspired me to shop for a new one.

    • I actually curl it a lot during the school year… the little girls like when it is curled πŸ™‚ I use a CHI straightener instead of a curling iron. The curls hold forever in my hair and I can change how loose or tight I want the curl to be!

  5. You look GORGEOUS as always! πŸ˜› I love the pics and wish I looked as good during action shots, ahaha!! Get that homework done, too!!!

  6. If ur not careful ur going to get scouted to model in athleta’s clothing and ur probably too busy for that… I like my running skirts so I hope u like ur new one.

  7. I agree w/ Shelly & you look gorgeous! Have you posted your arm workout? I want my arms to look like yours.

    • Ahh! I just yelled out loud over the arm comment!!! I felt like my arms were SO untoned before I started taking BodyPump classes at the beginning of June. Its the only arm stuff I’m doing!! πŸ™‚ Thank you!!

  8. Pretty pictures! I need my dad to do this for me too πŸ™‚

  9. Cute bic bands! I really need to order one of them. I like the smaller bands so much better than the thick bondi band I have now, but it’s been the only one to actually stay put.

  10. LOVE your pictures. You look great running across the street while trying to not get hit by a car! I have been wanting to take some running shots too so I think my husband will be busting out the camera again this week. Fixing your hair before photo shoots really ups the chances that you will actually post them on your blog and is completely acceptable.
    Btw, I have the Brooks running skirt that matches your tank and I love it. I actually wore it yesterday morning on my run. Hope you like it too.

  11. I LOVE your action shots!! You are too cute πŸ™‚
    Your arms are ROCKIN’!!!
    & I LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair, it is beautiful!
