April Highlights and May Goals

Hello! I got a new pair of running shorts at Costco yesterday. I’m not ready to wear “real” shorts, so I thought these bermuda shorts would be a good in between. Nah. They give me a murph.IMG_0274 (600x800)www.nataliedee.com

Run: I did Jillian’s 6 Week Six Pack Level 1 and went for an easy 2 miler to stretch my legs.

Eat: Food.IMG_0280 (800x600)

For breakfast I made an egg patty and paired it with a bagel. One side has PB&J, the other has cream cheese. Both sides are “mysteriously” missing a big chunk. IMG_0281 (800x600)

Question: What was your April Highlight?

Bonus question: What word do you use for murph or wedgie or…


  1. says

    Ha! I’ve never heard murph before. I say wedgie.

    My highlight of April was the Cherry Blossom 10 mile race. It was the best race I’ve ever run and it was beautiful to run through the cherry blossoms!

    Love your goals for this month! I hate getting “wedgies” at the gym. There’s no discreet way to fix it when you’re on the treadmill with a row of people behind you watching you run…but I do it anyway, lol.

  3. says

    Never seen running shorts like that! Why aren’t you ready for shorts yet? My April highlight was my spring break staycation and getting a new Half marathon PR (by 22 seconds, but a PR is a PR!).

    Good luck with your may goals!

  4. says

    I want to loose 5 pounds, too! I’ve gained some living it up here in New Zealand. Can you write a post about your plan to lose it (I know different things work for everyone, but I need some ideas!)

      • says

        I definitely second that request- I have a sweet tooth like you and tend to eat when bored so I’m really curious about your plan. It’s disappointing that you would get negative feedback if you’re being honest and doing it safely!

    I have never heard a wedgie being called a “murph” before. Very funny. My highlight of April was getting a Kate Spade purse for my birthday. I realize that makes me sound really shallow, but everyone deserves those moments every once in a while, right?

  6. says

    I must say whenever I read your blog…I am always so jealous of your breakfast meals! I leave for work a little after 6 a.m. and never have the motivation to put together a breakfast like yours!

    I binged out of boredom this weekend- it had been a long time and I was doing so well and making progress and I feel like i am back to where I started. Thanks for the HALT refresher– I definitely needed it.
