The manfriend was hanging up several pairs of my jeans after coming back from the laundromat and started laughing. He said something like "I didn't know you had so many jeans!" And then had the nerve to mention that I might not need anymore.
Well, friends, I live by the rule that you can never have enough jeans. Forget that I can't wear them 5/7 days of the week, but don't take away my jeans!
My new favorite jeans? Modern skinnies from the LOFT (on sale)! Fit like a glove.
This morning I counted and I have 11 pair - some lighter "summer" jeans, a few darker, dressier pair, bootcut, skinny jeans, etc. They have different purposes and probably half of them were bought on sale for $30 or so. What do you say? Too many?
My things are jeans and shoes. The manfriend? He loves himself a plaid button up!
National Health Blog Post Month
A few weeks ago, WEGO health sent me an e-mail about taking part in National Health Blog Post Month. I thought, why not? Essentially, there is a health related prompt for each day of the month. I'm not sure that I'll partake daily, but thought it would be fun to blog about the day's subject if it sounds interesting.

Nov 1st topic: Why I write about my health
I write about my health because it's an important part of my life and one that is now habit. I also enjoy reading other health blogs, getting ideas for workouts, reading fun, healthy recipes and seeing others live healthy, active lives. And I love being part of the conversation.
I write about my health (running, food, relationships, etc) because I'm passionate about it, period.
Today's topic: The weirdest thing about your health
The weirdest thing about my health? I'll be extremely careful about the meat I eat at restaurants (usually only eating organic, local meat), but then I'll go a little crazy with the sweets and essentially overload my system with processed crap from time to time that it doesn't need or want - hello, Halloween.
Obviously, being healthy isn't about being "perfect," but I definitely have double standards that don't always make sense.
On the running front
I totally get when new moms say they don't have time for exercise. Many nights I leave work late and only have a tiny bit of dusk left before it's truly dark. For safety reasons, I run FAST and short so as to get 'er done and get home for dinner (and homework fun). 3-4 mile runs are now becoming the norm, whereas 5 used to be my standard midweek run.
It's been fun to run fast, but I also need to make time for some slower relaxed runs too. That's usually what the weekend is for.
Okay, time to study! I took the day off work to just recharge, study and get caught up on life. With two quizzes and non stop homework this week, there wasn't a lot of time left over. Happy Friday to you!
Anyone doing anything fun this weekend? We may hit up the first Friday art walk downtown Eugene this eve. Oh, and Go DUCKS!
