What A Pain In The.... Neck

Sorry to be a bitchy Betty but I am about SICK of my neck hurting.

Have you all ever used these things?
I tried them for the first time today and really liked them.

Note to self:  Putting stuff like this on you then getting all hot working out (or via heating pad) is probaly not the best idea. It increases absorption which could be bad. I removed them as soon as I got home (Brad LOVED ripping them off, probably the best part of his day!).

I got 4 miles of speedwork in on a hills program on the treadmill. I felt good while doing it but of course my neck is sore now. (PS my MD said it was fine to keep working out, just to avoid jerky movements) I tried to avoid the emergency stop but of course I managed to hit it twice.

Moving on, Donna nominated me for a bloggy award, THANKS DONNA!!! I really appreciate it!

Seven random things about myself? How about just 7 random things:

1.   Look what I found at Target yesterday:
    Tell me that's not the greatest idea ever?! For hot chocolate or cereal or ice cream?!
    2.  B-rad really needed to flatten out his license the other day (it got all wrinkly when he was taking it to his new job. How did we take care of it?
    I swear we aren't alcoholics...
3.  My hair is kind of curly when I let it air dry (just curly enough to need to be straightened but not curly enough to be able to wear it that way!).
Hot, I know!

4.  I am addicted to this show now:

I watched all the episodes on the iPad over the long weekend and just my luck it starts back tonight!

5.  My mom loves all things Wicked (Wicked Witch and Glinda the Good Witch). I saw this and had to send it her way!

6.  Brad and I are really bad about changing the lyrics to songs to pertain to our lives. We're especially guilty of adding Rileybear however possible. Our newest hit? "Bear look at that doggie!" (Girl look at that body)... Yeah we're big time nerds, I know!!
7.  I can't think of anything right at this moment, but I did want to let you guys know that I've got a couple of great giveaways coming your way!!


  1. Riley looks so cute!!

    Those marshmallow bits look like bad news in my house...but look sooo yummy!

  2. What happen to your neck? Have you seen a doctor? Erica

  3. My husband changes words to songs too!

  4. I'm sorry your neck is still hurting. I hope it gets better soon!

  5. Boo for neck pain. I woke up with a stiff neck this morning. Stinks! I do have some of those Salonpas that I am going to try out as soon as I publish this comment. Thanks for the reminder!

  6. My husband changes songs to words just to annoy me. Sigh

    Hope your neck gets to feeling better soon. I want some of those marshmellows too!

  7. i kinda love salonpas but agree that they suck to take off. i hope your neck starts feeling better soon!!!! i LOVE your pup! so dang cute!

  8. I am just going to throw this out there, but those Salonpas commercials are soooooo annoying. It makes me want to throw my TV on the ground in anger. Hope your they make your neck feel better though!

  9. I am a huge Wizard of Oz fan! That's pretty cute.
