These little feet have gone 14 miles this week. Granted, they haven't
left the stroller, but still. So here I am, training for the 12 week
program that starts in two weeks. I know, weird right?! I figured I
might as well teach my legs to walk again more than just down the
hall. To be honest, doing this is the smartest thing I could have
done. After 2 miles my legs ached last week. Everyday i went out in
the afternoon to break up my day and get some sun. Today we did four
and I was spent after. Not to mention the killer sunburn I got. EeeeeKk!
I'm still walking right now and will start the running process with
the actual program but it's a start.

I've also started operation get my body back. I've started the 30
day shred DVD but well, haven't done it everyday. I will try to do it
at least a few times this week. I'm also going back to Pilates in
august. I even talked one of my friends to go to a Zumba class with
me this week (hope I don't faint from exhaustion on that one!).
Weight loss wise, I'm more than on track as to where I want to be. My
goal is to be where I was a year ago by mid September. We'll see how
that all plays out.

In any case, that's that's going on here with me. I'm still
adjusting to how to make time for myself and writing again. Hopefully
I will figure that out this week since tmw is a new month! I'm not
going to put up any "i'm going to" type of thing about that because
well, I'm a slacker and forget what I said I'd do and then the next
rolls around.

Enough about me... what about you? Have you kept up with working
during the summer?

Wednesday Ramblings

I was going to go to the computer and do Wednesday ramblings but
instead this little ladybug fell asleep on me and well, I prefer doing
this than typing on the computer! Can you blame me? Happy wednesday!

Wednesday Ramblings...

  • I love being a mommy!  I love the lack of sleep, I love the smiles and even her little tears (even if it does break my heart), I love your scent and I just love love love holding my little cupcake.
  • I'm finally feeling mostly back to my old self.  I have just a little more weight to lose before I can feel like I used to feel. 
  • Speaking of losing weight, I decided I am going to start the 30 day shred dvd.  I am going to get my @ss handing to me!  I know it!
  • We started a photo blog for KLM, if you are interesting in seeing it, email me and I'll send you the invite.  We decided we'll post a photo here and there on this blog but wanted something we can share with our families (who are scattered all over the country) to see how our little one is growing up.
  • On the menu for tonight, Chicken Kabobs!!!  
  • I am soo not a summer person, this heat it KILLING ME! 
  • Only 4 more weeks till Laughlin!  I love our summer family trips there!  This year we are celebrating my parent's 45th wedding anniversary!  They were great examples of what married life should be like. 
  • I do not miss work at ALL!  If only I can figure out how I work from home and never go back!!!  Chances of that happening are the same as winning the lottery. Uggh!
  • I have 5 thank you cards to write...must write them today.

Back to your regular scheduled programs

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to blogging... But you can't
blame me if you had access to little panda feet like I do! This week
my goal is to post 4 times... Yes this counts as one! Gotta go, I've
got to go cuddle with my little cupcake!

CSN Review... lawn games

  Well, I'm finally back... have soo much to write about but I wanted to tell you all about what we thought about the Bean Bag Toss we got from CSN Stores.   We received the backyard game the night we went into labor and you know me, we ripped it open and played it that night.  Needless to say I lost, kinda hard tossing bean bags while having contractions but can I say this game is addicting.  My friend Sara pointed out that in her neck of the woods it's called Corn Hole (because the bean bags are made of kernels).  This by far was the best thing we could have gotten!!!  We've played tons of games with friends and family since it arrived and the hubby is practically a pro at it by now!   

  One of my favorite things about ordering from CSN is their customer service.  A few days after I ordered it I received an email from a Representative letting me know that they were looking into why it wasn't shipped out, and then a few hours later I received confirmation that it was sent.  It was suppose to arrive on KLM's due date and it ended up coming two days early! The game is well made and easy to move around.  We already started to look at which other lawn games we want to buy from their stores! 

Thanks again CSN for the opportunity to review your services and will definitely be using you when it is time to finally remodel our bathroom
