Meet My Twin (Again)

Still sick today, folks. So, because I can't trust myself to produce an interesting or even sensical post, I'm going to do what I've done all my life and lean on my twin sister, Abbie. Because she blogs, but only sometimes. She just so happened to hit publish today, and that's my good fortune because that means I can steal her post as my own. I'm like 85% sure this counts as a post for me.

So check her out, and pretend that you're reading something I wrote! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go gargle some salt water.

Feel Sorry for Me

I'm sick. Humph.

My throat is scratchy and sore, my stomach and lungs are achy, and I can't get warm. It is the suck.

I'm still at work today, though--I'd rather spread my sicky germs all over my office and get my coworkers sick than germ up the house and get my dear husband sick. He was so good to me last night--he set me up on the couch in front of the big TV with practically all of our bedding and brought me dinner. I slept in a bit this morning because Pete says I'm not allowed to go running outside in 12-degree weather when I'm sick. Bossy McBosserton.

Fun fact: The cold air won't get you sick, but it DOES help a virus move to your lungs. I discovered this my junior year of college when I contracted walking pneumonia because the heat wasn't turned on in our dorms until waaay late into the season. Erika was my neighbor-across-the-hall that year. I bet she remembers how cold it got. Two plants in my suite died from the cold. Shit was serious.

Anyway. Today I'm sporting a huge scarf because my throat hurts and surely piling layers on it will help. Right?

Either way, I plan to work out through this sickness. I was going to hit up a few yoga classes this week, but I think I'll postpone that and avoid spreading my germs farther than I have to. I plan to run on the treadmill after work, lift some weights, and then Pete and I are going out for bar trivia! Dominate!

Now I'm a Real Runner

Whoo! Back at the daily grind! Anyone else struggling with being separated from their Christmas tree?



I had such a good time decorating and doing holiday crafts this weekend that I was very sad to see it end. I'm not even good at decorating, but I love Christmas so much that I'm always willing to try. I did realize just how in over my head I was yesterday standing in the holiday section of Walmart with Pete going, "hrmmm, ummm, ehhhhh I don't know. Do you think it would look weird if I just scattered a bunch of ornaments on our table as the centerpiece?"

I did make a Christmas card wreath, copying one I saw on Pinterest. Nailed it! Ha! :)


So how was your Thanksgiving? Ours...kind of sucked. My crazy uncle who disowned the family about 22 years ago came to our dinner. He's fallen on hard times lately and now that he needs help, the moms hear from him fairly often. I keep telling them to let him deal with the fallout of his own mistakes (cough! Tax dodger cough!), but they're all, "blah blah, he's family, blah blah, being a good Christian, blah blah blah ."

Luckily, we're all pretty tactful enough that we kept him from going off on a crazy tangent (oh, wait. Except when he started spouting out percentages and random figures in a frenzy...I think he was trying to prove that drug testing is a waste of money...I think...no one was really sure what his point was). He did get drunk, though, which was lovely. I mostly felt bad for my sister's new(ish) boyfriend and my good friend Alicia who joined us. It wasn't the worst night, I guess, but we were all on edge the whole time, just waiting for the worst.

Anyway. Before Thanksgiving dinner, I'd planned to run 7 miles. I got out on Thursday morning (a beautiful, glorious day that saw a high of 60 degrees) and got about 1 mile in before a bad side aches set in. As is happening more and more frequently I could not breathe through it. I don't understand that--I've suffered from side aches pretty much since I started running last February, and I've been able to get through them by changing my breathing or my posture. Thursday, nothing was working. I ran another 1.5 miles before I went home and cried. I was so frustrated. I got Pete all wet with my tears and then I lifted weights and did a ton of crunches and ab strengthening exercises. I read once that strengthening your core can help with a side ache, so I took my frustration out on my abs.

The next morning, I planned to run those 7 miles, but I woke up to a layer of snow on the ground. Since the sidewalks weren't cleared yet and I wasn't too eager to get outside, I kept it to 2.5 miles on the treadmill and more strength training (made those abs ache!).

And then the next morning, I got up nice and early and BUSTED OUT THOSE 7 MILES!



It. Was. Awesome. And cold. The weather app on my phone read 10 degrees when I started my run. Can you see the icicles on my hat and scarf in this picture? There were icicles on the back of my jacket, too (those sweat-wicking layers work)!

After my run, I posted my braggy picture to all media outlets--including Facebook. I almost never brag about running on Facebook because I've never felt like anything I did was that impressive, but I was too jazzed about this run not to crow about it. I got SO much feedback from my friends! It felt really good to "come out" as a runner.

Anyway. I limped the rest of the way home from my 7-miler, then hopped in the car and went to my WW meeting where I was down .8 pounds, at 150.6. So I didn't quite hit my goal of 150 by Thanksgiving, but I'm pretty darn close...or at least I was immediately after running 7 miles. And since I went off the weight watchers plan for like a week and a half (no tracking since Hunting Widows' Weekend, and really, if you're not tracking, you're not on Weight Watchers am I right?), I'm going to have to really watch myself this week so my weight doesn't creep (or gallop) back up.

Today, I'm back to salads. Joy. :)

Hope everyone else is having fun dragging themselves back onto the healthy eating bandwagon this morning!

Help! I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up!

AMBER ALERT: I have been missing from the weight-loss bandwagon for a few days now and the situation is getting critical.

Critical as in: I either get with the program now, or find myself in a hole that I won't be able to climb out of until January 1st.

The thing is, even though I was out of town this weekend, that's not what did it. I ate pretty well for Hunting Widows' Weekend, with maybe a few too many cookies. I got out and ran--4 miles one day, 5 miles the next (both with major side aches that su-hucked but didn't stop me).

See? I stuck to my running schedule while away. Why can't I do it here?


I weighed in at the Weight Watchers clinic in West Madison (151.4 lbs). I watched myself around the snacks and should have been able to keep along with the weight loss pace when I came home by buckling down just a touch. But my buckle broke. Or something.

I came back on Sunday evening and we didn't really feel like cooking, so we decided to pick something up. And we chose Taco Bell. 'Cause, you know, that's a wise decision.

Monday morning, I skipped my run. I planned to hit it after work, but I got stuck at work until 7pm and then met Pete and some friends at a small pub in St. Paul...and had 2 beers, a pretzel chili dog, and fries. Come on, Kate!

Yesterday was MUCH better when it came to eating, but I skipped my run in the morning again and then let a bad commute home deter me from running after work.

Blah blah blah, boring details. The fact is that I'm just tired. And lazy. I don't want to go back and fill out my tracker for the weekend--and I haven't tracked since last Thursday. I think maybe the problem was that I was gone all weekend, then out on Monday and I really just needed an evening home to get myself back to square one. Last night I cleaned my kitchen. I hard-boiled some eggs. I made pumpkin butter so I can pretend I'm Monica and eat pumpkin oats with an egg for breakfast. I made a deal with myself that I'd only get that awesome breakfast if I ran in the morning. OK, so that got me through this morning (and made me stuffed), but now what?

I'm in serious need of motivation/inspiration/verbal abuse. Help me, please?

Hunting Widows Weekend

Today's post comes to you from Sunny Wisconsin! Well, more accurately, I'm hitting "publish" in Wisconsin, but I'm writing it today (Thursday) in Minnesota.

Have you ever heard of Hunting Widows' Weekend? I'm seriously curious to see if this is just a Wisconsin thing or if they do it elsewhere. But apparently not curious enough to search for information about it. No thank you, Google, I'll pass today.

It's the first weekend of Wisconsin deer hunting season, when all of the men-folk head to the woods to sit in deer stands for hours on end and get drunk around the campfire at night. Meanwhile, it's tradition for the ladies to get together for shopping/eating/talking/movies/male strip clubs. Businesses around town put out "Hunting Widows' Weekend" specials (sometimes it's called "Deer Widows' Weekend,") trying to attract the females like a buck to a deer call.

My family doesn't do the strip club thing, but we do observe this most sacred holiday every year. I skipped last year, having blown through my vacation on our honeymoon (and figured that it wasn't worth it to drive to WI and tear myself away from my new husband for just two days).

But this year I'm proudly representing with the Minnesota contingent. My mom and I are traveling there tonight (Thursday).

My mom in the middle with her two sisters. You wouldn't think it to look at them, but these ladies spell  T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

It's a going to be a smaller group than years past, but despite this, there are a few things guaranteed:
  1. We will hit up the O.G. Unlimited salad and bread sticks, what what! 
  2. We will be shopping (and I will pretend not to notice the sales tax on clothes that we Minnesotans are not used to). 
  3. There will be some form of dessert that will be mighty tempting. Most likely pie, but there will probably also be bars. Midwesterners love bars. 
  4. I will be working very hard to stay on-plan. My goal to hit 150 lbs by Thanksgiving has not changed. I will be running (my running gear takes up half of my bag), I will be tracking, and I will be saying no to as many desserts as I can. 
To help with this last FACT, I'm bringing fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, and some 2-point pumpkin cookies (an alternative to any higher-calorie desserts).

I also plan to hit up a WW meeting on Saturday. There's a 10:30 am meeting in West Madison, just a few minutes from my old apartment. Did I mention that I moved to Wisconsin out of college for my first real person job? I stayed there for 2.5 years. It's crazy to think I've been back here for longer than that (nearly 4 years).

Anyway, that's what's rocking. I wish you all a most delightful weekend with slightly more male strip clubs than mine!

By the way, did you see Pete's post yesterday? If not, be sure to check it out and give him some love!

Pete Speaks! Post from the Mr. on Home Improvement

Ever since I saw Holly, Mama L, and Elle publish posts from their husbands, I've been begging Pete to jump on the spousal spouting bandwagon. It's taken persistence and a little elbow grease, ladies, but I finally wrangled him here! This is quite possibly the most exciting event of my week.

Without further rambling, I give you:



Wow, my first blog post ever!  Hopefully this is my first of many.  Let me start by saying that I have been working in the construction/engineering field for about 7 years now.  Before that I attended a technical school for architecture.  So I am apologizing in advance for any huge/annoying errors in grammar, spelling, or punctuation.  For the most part writing hasn't been a huge part of my lift for almost a decade, just lots of drawings.  Now that I scared anyone off who would even consider reading my guest post, let’s get started!

I could go on all day about being married to my wonderful wife for a little over a year now, but it might be more fun to work those details in as I guest post more on her amazing blog.

Setting It All Up


In May of 2008, just days before the economic collapse we all remember so dearly, I purchased a 2,025 square foot fixer upper in the suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Shortly after that, both of my roommates/renters were laid off from their separate jobs.  Luckily one was an electrician and the other was a custom wood builder, both willing to work off their rent.  I also had a connection with a perfectionist contractor who was always looking for work during those tough times.  With my band of unemployable laborers assembled, we began to tackle the house.

We tackled a lot of projects in the early days living in the house.  23 year old males almost prefer a messy environment, which is good when you are in a constant state of construction.  It can be tough to find roommates who are OK with no bedroom door for a month; I guess I just got lucky.  As the projects continued, the house began to look more and more like the finished picture in my head.  Though it was and still is a very slow process.

In the days of “the roommates” a lot of projects were completed.  We moved a “sliding door to nowhere” to better location.  We repaired a leaking skylight.  And we tore down a haunted forest that used to take up the entire yard, complete with creepy shed. 

From before Pete bought the house. This "door to nowhere" was moved to the basement.
This window was replaced with the sliding door (and moved to the kitchen). They also nixed the door you see at the far end on the left.
Cosmo loves his door.
All of the gross 80’s wood in the house was torn out (doors, trim, ledges) and replaced with brand new solid oak throughout.  This was all painstakingly finished in a beautiful red-oak color with many layers of satin lacquer.  We all lost many brain cells, as this was done in the closed garage in the winter.  But when you have a professional without a workshop living with you, willing to work for free….ish, you make compromises. 

Looking back at that wood project, I must have had such ambition at 22.  Most homes have very light “hollow core” doors throughout, and nobody ever thinks about it once.  I decided that every door from the biggest main door to the smallest folding closet door needed to be made of about 100 lbs. of solid wood.  It does seem very pointless to splurge on things like this, I do think about it from time to time.  But I had connections for that limited time (through my roommate) that could make it all possible and affordable.

Gross 80's wood
Beautiful doors and trim
Now all the roommates are gone and it is just the two of us.  The thought of overhauling all the wood in the house to nice high end oak, from a custom workshop is absolutely ridiculous.  So I am glad that I bit the bullet at the time and went all out and got it done.  Opportunities for getting things like the wood done come up from time to time and I always jump on them.  They are never as convenient as I may want, but I kind of like it that way. 

My wife Kate and I still keep the house in a constant state of renovation.  Though it’s a little less crazy than the lacquer-fume filled bachelor pad it once was.  We’ll have our dream house eventually; and I hope some more opportunities come up along the way to get us there a little faster.

Pete plans to do a series on his home improvement projects (score!), and he had a very tough time coming up with a topic for this post. With the backstory on the house out of the way, he can talk about pretty much anything now. Let him know if there are any projects or types of projects you're interested in. He'd love feedback!

Random Things on a Wednesday

On our way to Iowa, Pete and I made lists of Christmas movies we want to watch this season (Die Hard, While You Were Sleeping, Christmas Vacation, The Santa Clause, etc). Last night I talked Pete into diving into one of our Christmas movies, but Netflix totally let us down. So we watched all the Office Christmas episodes instead. Oh, Jim and Pam, your awkward journey to courtship was so adorable.

My company is having a progressive potluck today: lunch in our building, 2pm dessert snack in another. I plan on skipping the snack, but since I'm technically part of the group that planned the potluck, I have to participate in the lunch portion. I got my small team to go in on a taco bar together. You would be shocked at how much hand-holding these 5 adults need for this simple task ("Where do I plug in my crock pot?" "Can I keep the shells at my desk until the potluck?"). Common sense, anyone?

I did Pilates for the first time last night. I walked out of there, complaining that I didn't get a workout from the class. This morning, my abs are burning. That crazy instructor may be on to something.

I lost my necklace somewhere in my house yesterday. I put it in the pocket of my jeans when I changed into yoga clothes, and then later brought the pile of clothes up to my room. When I went to fish it out of the pocket, it wasn't there. It shouldn't be a big deal because I lost it in my house, but we have a puppy who thrills in eating shit off the floor. It's the very first piece of jewelry that Pete ever gave me--the first Christmas we were dating. I feel absolutely awful about this.

He wrapped it in a giant box, covered with tin foil and bound with aluminum tape. It was adorable.


We're moving cubicles. Again. I'm losing a window spot, but gaining a position with a direct line of sight between my computer screen and my manager's eyeballs. Superawesome.

I'm at 10 miles for this week. I need 6 more to stay on pace for my POTM goal. Are you participating? How are you doing?

Yoga is for Rich People

Well, it was a crazy weekend, for sure. I busted out my very first 6-mile run (in 63 minutes), celebrated a loss at my WW meeting, lost my ID in downtown Minneapolis (oh, joy), savored lasagna and tiramisu at my mom's house, and completely redesigned this here blog. It took a lot longer than simple html/css changes should have, but to be fair, the majority of my time was spent creating (and resizing) images.

My left leg was very sore after Saturday, so I took Sunday off from running and Monday morning I was back at it. Oh wait, no I wasn't. The alarm went off and my hand shot out like a rocket to silence the offending thing. I decided to get my run in after work. This proved to be a scheduling challenge because I also wanted to hit up a yin yoga class at another studio, at 7:15pm. I decided to just do them both together. This new studio is only a mile from my house, so I just ran what I thought would be two miles, and then ran the third mile on the way to the studio. It ended up being closer to 2.7 miles, total, but whatever. Then, I ran another mile home from class.

Hot damn was it cold. When I got to the studio and tried to register at the front desk, I couldn't enunciate my words. My mouth wouldn't work and it wasn't until I reached up and touched my frozen chin did I realize the issue. The run home was only six degrees colder (21 degrees), but it was awful. My clothes from earlier were still wet with sweat and when the wind hit them I became a Kate-sicle.

This is what I wore for my run last night: Sweat-wicking tank, track jacket, fleece vest, running tights, wind pants. Pete said he wouldn't stop hitting me with the foam roller until I stopped taking pictures of myself. It takes a while to get a good one, PETE.


Yesterday's cold run fresh in my mind, this is what I wore this morning: Under Armour shirt, Columbia jacket, long johns, sweat pants. You know, I knew when taking this picture that I was overdoing it a bit. Sweatiest run EVER.

I liked the new studio very much! It's much more down-to-earth than last week's studio. I didn't even go to the yoga class last Saturday because Friday night's class had me so worked up. Seventy minutes of just breathing and meditation. Five minutes of standing on one foot while doing a sideways split (smack in the middle of class and then it was back to breathing/nap time). I seriously fell asleep during our 15-minute (no joke--15 minutes) shavasana. What a waste of time.

Anyway, despite that frustrating experience (don't even get me started on the nonsensical garbage that came out of the yogi's mouth), I'm committed to keeping up with yoga. And I figured I'd share with you my approach to saving money on this very expensive sport.

Here are my plans to save:
  1. Free trials. I'm going on week two of free yoga. I will be hitting up every conveniently located (and sometimes inconveniently located) studio that offers a free week to new members. Not only will this help me get a better idea of the type of studio and instructors I'm looking for, but it also helps me put off actually investing in this activity. Drop-in classes usually fall around $15/class, and monthly memberships are at or a little over $100. See? Expensive!
  2. Activity punch cards. Eventually, one of the locations I'll test out is my city's community center. They offer 10 yoga classes for $75--that's half what I'd pay for a drop-in class at a studio! This punch card doesn't expire and I can use it on any kind of class I want. It's a great deal!
  3. Groupons. I always see yoga studios and fitness clubs on Groupon and Living Social. My friend Jenna (who persuaded me to try yoga in the first place) said she's used them with some success. Just last week I saw a deal for a month of yoga for $49. That's...pretty good as far as yoga studios go, actually. The location was inconvenient, though, so I didn't go for it. 
  4. Maybe church. Maybe. They offer "prayerful yoga" on Wednesdays. Unfortunately I teach during those sessions, but I'm thinking the next week we have off of class (or during the summer, I could chiz-check that out). It might be totally bogus, but why not give it a try, am I right?
  5. Videos. Once I learn the forms well enough and feel confident in my yoga-ing abilities, I'll probably stop attending classes so often and switch to doing mostly videos at home. I'd still take a class once every week or two weeks, just to make sure my form is right and to get the feel for it, but why pay for it if I have a mat and a DVD player at home? Unless I totally get addicted to studio time and the soothing yogi talk. HA HA! :)
Essentially, my overarching strategy is this: Don't pay for a membership at a yoga studio. Yes, paying for 3 drop-in classes a week is more expensive than buying them in bulk, but at most I'd rather pay for one month at a time so I can make use of deals as they pop up. And ultimately I'm thinking I'll probably just join the fitness center at my community center: $35 a month and I can take unlimited group classes, use the gym, AND use their running/walking track (perfect for training during the icy months!). Also, they offer body composition tests and physical evaluations for like $5. Sweet!

Anyone have any other tips for saving on yoga?
