It’s all about perspective. And Jello Monsters.

It seems kind of silly to get all excited about running two miles without stopping.  But here I am, brimming with excitement!

The thing is– getting back into shape after having a baby can take some real focus.  Some people have an easy time with it, others have to work for it.  I fall into the latter category!

Aren’t they a great color?  I may or may not have searched the Internet far and wide for the perfect shoe.

 

In other news….last weekend I made these wonderful jello pinwheels:  They are the perfect picnic food.

When I was taking this photograph the camera said, “Blink Detected.”   (I keep imagining this Jello-monster lurking in my 8X8 pan)

After refrigerating for an hour, the marshmallows rise to the top of the Jello.

You then peel out the jello,  create logs and slice into pinwheels!  Voila!  Brightly colored picnic snack!

Hi.

Hi. I’m Sarah.  This is my first blog entry!  I’m going to explain how the existence of this blog is a metaphor for “grabbing life by the horns” in a moment– (or something like that).

Here I am.  With an armful of puppies.

I have wanted to create a blog for several years, but I found myself waffling over many factors.  What would I write about?  What would the title be?  These questions plagued me every time I opened WordPress.  There were many failed attempts– nights spent staring at the blinking cursor.  I was overcome by a sea of conflicted feelings.  Emptiness filled my soul.

But you know what?  If I waited for the perfect blog title to come to me, I would be waiting for a very long time.  There is a lesson here, and that lesson is: Follow your dreams. Grab life by the horns.  Unless the horns are attached to an angry rhino, in which case you shouldn’t grab them. In fact, you should just run in the other direction.

Anyway.  I just wanted to clarify that “Run Like a Dinosaur” does not mean that you should imitate the running form and stride of a dinosaur. There are many different types of dinosaurs and this would be difficult and/or impossible to accomplish. What it means is that you should run with the fearless mentality of a dinosaur.  A dinosaur is never afraid.  A dinosaur goes after its goals and accomplishes them.

If this blog was a video game character, it would be Level 0.  I have a lot of leveling to do, because:

  • My fitness journey is just beginning! I’m a new mommy and am just getting back into shape!
  • The layout is kind of crappy because I drew the dinosaurs using MS Paint.
  • My blog has no focus because I can’t think of any one thing I want to write about!  *Details*

Hope you stick around– but if not that is okay too!
