So enough complaining right?
I'm not going to let a rough week ruin my ultimate goal (lose 20 pounds by the end of May)...So last night after everyone was asleep, I stayed up and exercised w/ the help of our Wii fit! I ran about 8.5 miles! YAY! It felt good to sweat after not exercising for 5 days! So I didn't loose any weight this week, but I didn't gain any either...so this week I just gotta concentrate on exercising more regularly. Does anybody else have a hard time spelling exercise? I spell check it EVERY time! You'd think I would know how to spell it by now.
On another note, I said my next post would be about my cute kids w/ pictures included so here I go.
Anna is now a crawling little princess! She wants to put everything in her mouth, and has started standing in her crib and pack n' play! My little baby is not so little anymore, and that makes me kinda sad. I take twice as long putting her down to sleep lately because I just love how soft, warm and cuddly she is! She's sure a mama's girl! Poor Randy tries to help with her and as long as she doesn't see me she's fine (most of the time), but as soon as she sees me, she wants me to hold her. How can you resist a little princess like this?
Our little Jacob is such a bright little guy. He learns so many words and things every day, he amazes me. Yesterday I had the hardest time getting him to let me bathe him...so Randy got home from work and tried and tried to convince him to go upstairs and take a bath. Finally Randy convinced him by promising bubbles in the tub! Jacob got a 'blueberry' scented bubble bath bottle in his stocking for Christmas, and we still hadn't used it. So Randy bathed him, and Jacob was just so agreeable and happy, I just couldn't believe it! He had been throwing fits everytime I even mentioned the word 'bath'...
Sometimes Randy's got the magic touch with the kids!
Here's Jacob at Autie Kay's house on Christmas Eve
He loves wearing his BYU hat!
Here he is at the Temple Square Lights...exploring!
I was happy Randy was able to bathe Jacob, because it gave me time to catch up on my reading! I don't have time to read books, I actually rarely have the time to read 'an article', so it was nice to just relax for a few minutes and read "Elle magazine" of all the magazines I have! LOL I have so many magazines, I fill up our 'recycle' bin every other week! I had free subscriptions to a whole bunch of magazines this year, everything from 'Parents' to 'Martha Stewart Living' to 'Shape' Most of the subscriptions have expired, but it was fun to have all those mags to read...not that I read them all, I have to admit, most times they just took up space in my kitchen. Anyways, where is this going? Oh yeah, I got them all from my favorite blog http://www.hip2save.com/ I just love it!
These past couple of weeks I have been slowly 'dejunking' my house, and it shows! I don't get so overwhelmed now, and I'm not constantly stressing about things I need to do around the house. It has been nice for everyone! So I've had success becoming 'somewhat' organized, and I'll continue working at it, as well as working on my weight loss.
Have a happy week and I'll keep updating my progress!
