--Micah spent last week (as in a week ago) with his grandparents down in Mississippi. It was very, very, very hard for me to leave him. (I called my mil that Friday night at 9pm crying stating I was coming to get him.) In the end, Mr. C & I had a fabulous date weekend. We don't get a lot of time as a family together, and we have even less time alone! I got my eyebrows waxed, read a book at Dunkin Donuts, went out to two dinners (one alone & one with friends), went to see the Hunger Games, and got nothing accomplished at my house. We met up with the in-laws at the circus where Micah had a blast.
--My baby sister turned 30. That makes me feel old. Eventually I will blog her surprise party from this current weekend and the pictures from the circus. How can she be thirty? Moreover, how can I be 33??
--I have been on a wonderful journey this Lent season committing myself to working out! Now this working out takes up a lot of time at night because I have to wait until my son has gone to bed. Instead of facebook/blogging/twitter...I have been at the gym. It feels great to give up some technology/couch sitting for some activity. Micah and I go on a walk as much as the weather allows at night (every evening if possible), and I'm even committed to walking for my treats! We go three miles (round trip) if I want something sweet at the local froyo place down the street. It's a haul, but such a good reward for working out. And you can't beat getting your workout in, getting your treat, and then walking it off on the way home.
--I have almost mastered grading all my papers at school. I rarely come home with "work" to do anymore, and I've really committed to making nighttime family time. Even if family time is just Micah & Mommy.
--I feel really blessed. Incredibly blessed.
--We went back to church for the first time in a month! Ohmygoodness. It was way, too long! I spent two weekends caring for a very sick child, one weekend out of town on vacation, and one weekend accidentally oversleeping because there was no child here to wake me up. Really bad excuse on that last week, but the truth, nonetheless.
--My husband started P90x. I'm not so sure I'm going to do P90x. My goal is 15 pounds, but I think I'd be happy with about 10. Time to shake off the baby weight. Which, actually...there is no baby weight left. It came off within a week. (Yes, I was that girl thanks to nursing. I was actually a size I hadn't seen in some time. I heart nursing!) However, my body is still not fitting into clothes right because after nursing, I kept eating like a horse. Which the ten pounds I lost (yes, ten pounds lower than my pregnancy weight--don't kill me) came back. I'm tired of some weight I put on before having a baby. Time to do something else added in with my new workouts.
--I may or may not be training for a 5k. I'm on week 2 of my C25K app (which is amazing!) and back to running this week. I realize my best friend will read this and laugh. I'm not an exerciser. I'm not a healthy person. I'm not a fitness nut, but I'm also considering doing some of this clean eating stuff because I'm just so sick of not liking my body. Something has to give.
Well, that's it. Hopefully I'll be back up for the vlogging challenge this week! Have a great day!
