Kombucha contains alcohol? And other random stuff

Good Sunday morning to you!! There are a bunch of random things in my brain and the boys are still snoozing so I figured I’d chat with you guys.

First things first, Kombucha contains alcohol?? Is this a new thing? Clearly it meant that I needed to try the Synergy brand for the first time. The grape flavor rocks btw.

I took Bam for a hike at our favorite trail and we met another Jack Russell, Murray. They are now BFF’s and I want another JRT, but Mike said nooooooo. They will conspire against us. I’m willing to take on that challenge.

PS I take Bam to the same trail all the time and walk in the same direction just in case he loses all of his eyesight one day. Hopefully he will be able to use his other senses to navigate it. But more so, hopefully he doesn’t lose his eyesight.

I had another setback this week, but after this PT treatment I went for a surprise run. It went well, the sesamoids are still a little angry, but most of the pain now is the Mortons Neuroma. Does anyone else deal with this? Please send your best advice, because I’m thinking about cutting this foot off and seeing if it grows back like a starfish.


Even with the setback, I nailed all of my workouts, which I’m pretty stoked about. I even slipped in a pool run with Maiah. Pool running, counts towards steps, right?


Speaking of workouts, here is what I have on the schedule this week:

I love not having to think about or plan workouts. They just magically appear in an app. Okay well, I’m sure Paige puts a lot of thought and hard work into accommodating my failing body parts. Which I have an endless appreciation for.


At the end of the work season, I try to do something a little special to celebrate a fantastic year. Something I normally wouldn’t do or buy. This year I picked out a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne. I can’t tell you how many bottles I’ve poured – actually cases, especially for a private party from Beverly Hills at Concours d’Elegance. Hopefully it’s a good pick, though I did sale 4 bottles to a famous basketball player and when I asked how many glasses he would like, he replied “oh I don’t drink that stuff” then promptly took it to the 18th hole, shook it up, opened it and sprayed it on his buddies. So yeah…

I can’t get enough of Bam, he’s kind of a big deal. We got to snuggle yesterday morning, and if you know the JRT breed, then you know how special this is. It only took him 10 years to slow down and let me snuggle with him.



Are you planning to go shopping on Black Friday?

Nope, I hope to go for a hike and shop on Cyber Monday.

Do you drink Kombucha? 

I do occasionally, but Mike thinks it tastes like butt cheese.

What does your training plan look like?

4 things you’re thankful for?

  1. I’m thankful for:
    – my 4 legged boy…Indy….the light at the end of my day…and always makes me smile
    – my mom….my bestfriend
    – The golf season is coming to a close…looking forward to taking some time to recharge
    – My health

  2. Bam is too cute! Snuggles are the best! I do all my shopping online so will take advantage of all the deals during the holidays. Black Friday will find me swimming in the morning then watching college football rivalry day! These days my workouts are running, swimming and lots of weights! It’s much too cold in Colorado to get the bike out right now (I work out before the sun comes up). I am thankful for my health, my family & friends and my job. I am so scared to try Kombucha.

  3. Chihuahuas are like that, too!! They race around vigilantly for like the first 10 years of their life and then are ready for more naps and cuddles…
    I recently read kombucha is not great as it has a ton of sugar!! and that probiotic pills are better. I am sure it’s all the same, I feel the kind of person who seeks out kombucha is probably really health-centered in general. I have never tried kombucha, I am too scared of what it might do to me… same with drinkable chia, etc… And Black friday!! I might try and go to J Crew to return something.
