Week 3

I did my part... my body did not. No change this week. Shedding a tear or 2 and eating a candy bar.

Week 2

This week has proven to be a challenge in many ways! First and foremost the weather SUCKS! I have absolutely NO motivation to get out and run when it is 30 degrees out..... Second, my knees are killing me! I am going to attribute it to an old soccer injury that required surgery, but in all honesty, I am sure it is the extra weight I am carrying that is making them ache... hopefully as time progresses they will get better. Thirdly the eating thing.... well, it was a week of birthday celebrations for my Lily Pie. That of course requires 3 cakes this week! Which in turn requires, 3 (4-5 ) pieces for me... OUCH! I was super scared to hit the scale this week!

I have been also incorporating a YOGA DVD that I checked out from the library. I dig it! I like the low impact, the relaxing motions, the stretching and strength training it provides. I did that 2 days last week instead of running and I really enjoyed it!

I was was happy (no, really, disappointed) to see no snow on the ground this morning! I made a deal with myself last night that if there was snow on the ground this morning that I could skip my Monday run and curl up with a cup of coffee and my YOGA.... I think this is the first time in a LONG time I was pissed there was NO snow!

Anyway, here is what you have all been waiting for!

Week 2

Lily Grace... 365 days old!

What a blessing this child has been over the last year! God is so GOOD. Most nights Ryan and I talk in wonder about what each of our girls have accomplished. And how we could possible go from hanging out with our friends each weekend, to setting up swing sets and charging Barbie car batteries in a matter of 3 years. This is just where I thought we would be!

Lily is so unique. She is a cuddle bug, lover, mamma's girl, flirty, giggly, tricky, strong, sippy cup drinkin', eat anything and everything in sight, bald, wide-eyed, dancing, clapping, kinda walking, easily annoyed by her sister, piece of goodness!


We love you Lily, and praise God for you every day!

PS. I am pretty sure she had more hair the day she was born than she does now... I'm thinking she needs her ears pierced! ;)
