January Jumpstart Day 28: Currently + a few giveaways

Welcome to Day 28 of January Jumpstart! We have almost made it. I hope you have set goals this month, started a new routine, maybe tried a new workout and found some accountability here. For me, today was a gym day. I did 2 miles on the treadmill, followed by leg weights and abs. I haven’t been doing much leg weights lately so I need to work those back in.

Breakfast was a wheat bagel with almond butter and banana.

JJS 28

Let’s do another installment of currently….



I’m reading The Long Run by Matt Long. A friend loaned it to me a while ago and it’s taking me forever to read it. It’s a good book though!

I’m wearing Maurice’s Denim Flex Jeggings. They are so comfortable!

My new-to-me favorite show is Chicago Fire. I gotta find the 1st season on DVD. I got caught up on the 2nd season on Hulu and I’m hooked. My old faves are still Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, and Law & Order: SVU.

I’m drinking water…pretty much that’s it. No sodas, no alcohol, so sweet tea.

My bedtime is 9:30 PM 4 nights a week because my alarm is set for 4:30 AM.

Favorite lotion is Velvet Sugar from Bath and Body Works.


I’m excited about today’s giveaways!

The first one is from Allied Medal Display.

Have you heard of them? They make awesome medal holders. I got mine for my birthday 2 years ago and it’s already full. I got a 2nd bar to add to it for Christmas. Ally was hanging her medals on mine too so it was really crowded. She got her own for Christmas (YAY!). I have dealt with them several times and the customer service there is great!

Allied makes custom hangers and have tons to choose from in stock. They are made of stainless steel and it comes with the hardware to hang it.  The giveaway is for a medal hanger of your choice, up to $75 value, excluding custom orders.

The giveaway runs from 8AM CST January 28, 2014 until 8PM CST February 2, 2014. Winners will be contacted via email. Must be a US resident to receive the prize. No purchase necessary to win. Void where prohibited by law. There are several ways to earn entries in the rafflecopter below.

    My favorite pro compression socks that I have are the shamrock ones from last spring! Currently, I really like the pink ones!

  2. lisa torgerson says:

    I love my one and only pair of compression socks too! Day 28, ran a chilly and windy 5 miles but so glad I got up and did it; very thankful that my running buddies were okay with running in those temps, but we did it! I have to be really good today, yesterday was a breakdown for me in eating, something I haven’t done in awhile. Bad day at work will do that to you…. I won’t share how much peanut butter I ate, but let’s just say too much…. and had wasaba crips with cheese, which is another no no for me. I tried to be good during our Jason’s Deli dinner by just ordering Gumbo with no rice and that’s it. Was trying to make up for the damage I did when I walked in the door. Tomorrow my goal is to hit the gym hard and really up the weights.

  3. Larissa says:

    I’m torn between the white, purple or yellow socks. I haven’t tried PC, but I have used other compression socks… did amazing things for my calves. So far my few race medals are in a drawer I think. No workout yet today; speed work and weights last night, and probably some yoga this evening.

    Also, 4:30 AM??!?? Sheesh woman! Not my style… 🙂

      I do not like 4:30AM either but it’s either then or not getting done. Plus all my friends are doing it so I might as well! 🙂

  4. jh says:

    LOVE the medal holder giveaway!! Right now my medals are hanging on over-the-door towel rack. Gotta improvise! 😉

    And ProCompression are my favorite! I love my purple ones, but have been digging their new pattern styles.

    I have not worked out yet today, but have Crossfit on schedule for tonight!

    Thanks for the giveaways!!

  5. Laurel C says:

    I haven’t run yet but when I motivate I’ll head to the gym! I LOVE Pro Compression, but I could really use a new pair!

  6. beth davis says:

    Oh I am behind a bit yet again! Kids are sick! Ugh the life of the stomach bug returns!!!! But ia m running tonight… in the frreeeezzzing cold! Oh and we had puppies last night too! lol

  7. Eliza Klinger says:

    I love Pro Compression socks especially the pink ones. I should get a run in today and maybe have some fun with Zumba
    I also love the medal holder. Unfortunately all my medals are just hanging in my closet for no one to see. I would love a hanger so I can properly display my achievements!!

  8. Betsy says:

    I haven’t worked out yet. And right now my medals are hanging off the side of my bookshelf. I think I like the pink ones best =)

  9. Sonturtle says:

    I finally got to work out today after being sick for a little over a week. I did a Chisel class, which I love and will try to get a little running in on the treadmill tonight. I love Pro Compression socks. I actually have two pair, the Marathon Compression hot pink and purple, that I wear when I do longer runs. They seem to help with my shin splints. The Medal holders are really neat. I currently have one but could always use a second.

  10. Tami says:

    I’m getting ready to work out now. My medals are hanging on a door knob until I can get something better :-). I love procompression socks. Would love the purple ones!!

  11. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes says:

    Rest day for me today!! I have my medals on an MRTT medal hanger actually, but with all of the races I’ve got lined up this year, I’m going to need another one! My pink procompression socks are my fave right now!

  12. Anel says:

    I didnt’t know that Jiff made almond butter! That’s awesome! I am going to look up that book. I love me a good book! The bad weather is back so my husband and I took our workout to the gym. I ran 5 miles on the treadmill and I felt strong. I love runs like that! I also had a morning yoga practice in the morning; so nice! I would love the red socks! I have heard those socks are awesome! I hope I win. Thank you!

  13. Anel says:

    I had a morning yoga practice and I ran 5 miles today. I wasn’t sure if one comment counted for both giveways, or if each needed it’s own comments. I don’t have that many medals yet- I’m a newbie to racing!

  14. No workout…trying to get over sinus crud before RnRNOLA. I’m loving the new Sock of the Month…the Neon Dots.

  15. I got 6 miles in in -1 windchill weather! Felt good. Nice to have a windchill so close to zero. : /
    I like pink socks! 🙂

  16. Ashley says:

    My medals are in a bucket in my bathroom….no workout with all the ice

  17. Ben J says:

    I did a 4-mile run today. Blue socks are my favorite.

  18. Kristi L says:

    I didn’t work out today but will be running a race in the morning. I’m saddened to say that my medals are piled up on my desk. My favorite color procompression socks are my marathon pink socks. They are the best!
