Check-In

It's been a super crazy week. I'm juggling taking care of the boys, the house, and workouts around Josh's school and the baby's nursing schedule. He's nursing on demand and cluster feeds in the evenings which is my only time to work out. It's been hard but it's been worth it. 

If you know me personally you have heard me say many times that I only run if someone is chasing me. I never thought I could enjoy running. 

But here I am. Running everyday. And I'm actually pretty decent at it. I started my goal off with running a mile a day. I didn't care about time or calories burned. I just wanted to run/walk a mile a day. I downloaded the couch to 5K app on my Ipad and started on Sunday. 
I found that once I was running I didn't want to stop when the app told me too. So I didn't. And before I knew it I had run 2 miles. Actually, a bit over 2 miles... so I slowed down a bit and walked until I caught my breath. And then I ran the rest of the way. I ended with 3 miles in about 45 minutes. 

Since then, I've managed to run 3 miles in 34-35 minutes. I'm pretty impressed with myself to be honest. I've already lost 2lbs on the scale too. I'm not too concerned with what the scale says. I only weighed out of curiosity. I'm using an old pair of jeans as my scale. 

Yesterday was a rough day for me... I was tired and a bit emotional. (I love the rain but it often drives me into a few hours of depression when I'm already tired and hormonal) I did not want to run. In fact, I only wanted to walk to my bed and go to sleep. But I didn't. Instead, I ran. And I made my best time yet. :) It felt good.

So what else is new? 

My bestie Jessa is coming to visit on Monday. I'm SOOOO ready to have some girl time. I NEED girl time. Expect a blog entry showing all the fun we had. :) 


Josh and I are taking a date Thursday. Alone. Okay, not exactly alone. We'll have Landry but we found the most awesome babysitter and she'll be watching the older boys for a couple of hours. I'm nervous yet excited!

Wiggles Live concert is coming up. The boys are very excited about it too. Josh and I are actually quite excited about it too. I'm REALLY hoping Landry does well in the Mai Tai. I may actually see which carrier he does better in. I'd prefer the Mai Tai but I know he loves the Ergo.. so we'll see. I'll have a HUGE blog entry with tons of pictures from that family outing. 

I guess that sums up my current life. 

Here are some funny cards that have kept me laughing all week. Hopefully you'll enjoy them too.
