It's on...

So, I have decided that rather than wait for the new year, I am gonna start my resolution early. Seeing as I never have much luck keeping my word on the New Year's ones, maybe starting off early will help?? :) I had what I feel was an embarassing moment that help me come upon this decision. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, my brother was in town and asked me if I wanted to go for a run with him. Well, why not? I did run a couple races 2 yrs ago, I have no doubt that I am up to this challenge! And, furthermore, I have been doing the 30 day Shred!! Just call me Flo Jo! Ok, so here's what went down: I get on the road, we start running, I am ok for a few hundred yards. Then my brother drops the bomb that the day before he ran 12 miles! Do you hear me- 12 MILES!!!! Umm, yeah, well I couldn't hang. I was out of breath and my shins were on FIRE! But he was gracious and slowed down to a snail's pace so that we could avoid calling an ambulance to come get me. Anyway, that was my motivation, I am determined to do some 5 and 10k's in the spring. And I did run 2 miles on Saturday with no problems!

The other things is that while I have been pretty religious about the 30 day Shred, I have not really changed my eating habits. It kinda doesn't work to do this insane workout and then down a Twinkie! I do have a history of this behavior, dating back to high school. My good friend Laura and I would walk the track in the evening and then hit Wendy's for dinner!! So, here I am, once again. I really do need to make some changes for myself and to set a better example for my girls.

So, in the words of my big brother, I am gonna go now and get my run on.

Not Me Monday

Well, this will be my first Not Me Monday post- YAY ME!!! So, I did not almost let my kids eat birthday cake for breakfast, only because I was not feeling like making pancakes! (But, I did give in and make the pancakes). My husband and I were not the oldest people watching New Moon on Saturday! I certainly did not understand what all the little teenyboppers were all a twitter over! I also did not put my 2 yr old down for an afternoon nap at 10:30 this morning, because I didn't think I could hold out another 2 hrs!

I am sure that there will be many more thinhgs to post about next week!

It's Been a while..

Yes, I know it has been too long!! But, I am back and really have no great things to share with you!! :) Maggie is binky free!!! It was a tough couple of days, but we all made it through! I cut a hole in the top of and told her it was broken, and she sat on her bed and looked so pitiful! She just kept saying, "Daddy fix it". I felt horrible, but also knew that at 2 and a half, it was time to say goodbye for good.

The girls are now sharing a room at night! About a month or so ago, Mackenzie announced she wanted to sleep in Maggie's room. I really didn't think it would last more than 10 minutes, but guess what? I was wrong. The girls now both have little beds in Maggie's room, and Mackenzie still has her old room! So, we'll see how long this goes on for and maybe in a couple years they will get a bunk bed!
