This photo was from last weekend, my friend D came up for the night, and we got a little goofy. If you look at it quickly, I think I look like I have Spock ears. Well, maybe you just had to be there.
Before I forget, go and check out my triathlete friend Kelly's Giveaway for WhooHa Gear.......it's a cute line of inspirational workout gear.
Things have still been a bit up and down lately. Mike's Jeep was in the shop on Friday, and now today, my Jeep is in the shop. $$$ ouch. On a good note, Eliza is now in her big girl bed, and is Binkie Free, I was geared up for nights of crying, but it really wasn't that bad. She's okay at night, but her naps have been a nightmare. As in she won't take one. Normally she goes down in the afternoon for at least two hours, and that is when I jump on the treadmill. Mike got the treadmill back in place, now that the carpet has dried after the hot water tank tanked. But these past few afternoons she will NOT go to sleep, and I've been up and down the stairs in my running clothes trying to get her to go to sleep in between stretching. Today I finally took the baby monitor into the basement, and banged out four miles while she chatted away to her pillow. If she's done with naps I'm going to have to switch to morning runs. I actually considered getting up this morning at six, to get outside for an early run before the kids got up and Mike went to work, but HELL-O it was 35 degrees, and I'm not ready for that temperature extreme yet.
I have been doing well with my nutrition challenge. I achieved 15 points last week (but as the evidence shows, I slipped over the weekend. Those homemade cookies were particularly tasty). I'm already good at getting my fruits and veggies in, but I was very conscious not to throw an M&M in my mouth every time I walked into the kitchen. And I took the time to just toss the kid's leftovers into the garbage before taking a bite of whatever looked good. No Weeknight Wine was hard on Thursday night, it was the Wedding Episode of the Office (love it) and along with Survivor, that is my must see TV night. But my jeans fit better this week, so the trade off was worth it.
