Just The Tip Tuesday– Pick A Big One Win a Prize

Hello! After work I met up with Skinny Runner for a walk. It was nice to see her even though it feels like we practically live together these days…

We walked for a record 5 miles talking about life, liberty and the pursuit.

Then, we took pics of each other like nerds…monica cochina bootie olivas

We email each other our pics and she sent me these and a pic of Kim Kardashian on accident (I think). I suspect she files KK and I both under “dookie booties” and I’m on board with that…

Post-walk I made a quick trip to Trader Joes. I grabbed this Trader Jose light – I guess it’s supposed to be like a Corona, right? We’ll see.1359509331462 (408x306)

Just the Tip Tuesday: Trader Joe’s sells squash by a flat price NOT by weight like other stores. So, pick the biggest one you can find because size matters. Yep.

Question: What’s your tip for the day?

    My tip is to go back in time and not buy that Trader Jose Light, because it is TERRIBLE. I made that mistake once, too.

    That is an amazing tip!! Ummm lets see what random tip I can think of…the only thing I can think of is pretty lame. To get your wedding ring to look extra sparkly mix a little bit of window cleaner with hot water, then soak. It honestly looks like when you get it cleaned by professionals. (Not sure if this is actually good for the ring or not bit mehhh :)

    My tip is if you workout 5 times a day because you are in a fitness challenge then your legs will probably fall off…wait, that not a tip, that’s me complaining.
    Tip: Don’t join a fitness challenge unless you want your legs to fall off.

    I hope you meant ‘donkey booty.’ if not then my tip is ‘don’t hang out with people that think you have a dookie bootie.’

  5. says

    This is random, but you totally look like Mariah Carey in the cochina picture. I mean that as a compliment (and also as, “woh, weird!”)!

  6. says

    My tip is to download as many free iTunes T.V. shows as possible and watch them during long treadmill runs. They are saving my sanity right now!

  7. says

    Just the tip Tuesday!!! Ahahhaha!! I just started reading your blog and because you have Just the Tip Tuesday I will continue reading (and you’re a fun interesting runner and friends with Skinny Runner — Who I also just started reading) So fun!! Happy Hump Day!! :)

    Always wake up when your alarm goes off so you can get your workout in or you will regret it later. Obvious right? I can’t seem to remember that every time I turn my alarm off.

    I always buy Trader Joe’s squash when I’m tight on a budget. I can doctor it up for less than $10 total for my dinners for an entire week!

    Funny, I posted a few tips yesterday on the blog I recently started lol. My random tips were how to avoid running when you really need to crosstrain As well as the random tip of – did you know you can reuse K-cups in the coffee machine? You can easily run them through one or two more times! Saves a ton of money if you brew a lot of coffee like I do!

  11. says

    My tip is to always… well, let me rephrase that… never, ever… under any circumstances, for any reason whatsoever… no wait…always… every time… plan your tip before you start typing.

  12. says

    My tip is to stopping being so hard on ourselves (especially is ladies). Things happen. Just pick yourself up, brush yourself off and start over. Some times we can learn more from our so called mistakes or mis-steps that we can from our victories.

    I have a confession to make; I usually shop at Walmart (because I’m a poor post-grad) and I always go to the self-checkout because the employees are super slow, and sometimes I hold up my produce a little bit from the scale so its lighter=cost less. Yeah, I’m a kind of thief. Woops.

    I’m cracking up that you use dookie booty! I might be the only reader that is familiar with that, from a hip hop song, definitely a term of endearment. Embrace it!
