Big girl pants

I'm pulling up my big girl pants and trying to change my attitude.  I think I just needed an attitude adjustment!  It took until Saturday to do it, but I'm not going to dwell on it. I finally got to sleep in Saturday morning - until 9:30!!  Then I ran 5 miles and felt like a million bucks!!  I now I've said this before, but I'll say it again- Sleep does a mind and body good.  Ever since we went camping the kiddo has decided to start his day at 6 am.  He used to sleep until 8:30...  I really like working out before he gets up but once again I need to be flexible because I am a mommy and that isn't going to change any time soon. 

My goal for this week is to only eat at the kitchen table.  Sounds simple right?  I have been paying very close to my habits this past week.  I tend to eat mindlessly when I am stressed, and I never sit down at the table while I am doing it.  That is my goal and to weigh in on thursday.

In other news...My sisters and I started training for a half marathon in October!  Well I should say they started last monday.  I started on Saturday!  I am on it today though, don't you worry.  Today is a cross training day.  I am going to do my Kenpo-X workout from the P-90x dvds.

I am contemplating joining the YMCA again. It is only 1.5 miles from our house and I think it has a lot more things for the kiddo to do now that he is a little bigger.  I think I will go check it out today.  They have a lot of classes like spinning, yoga, pilates, etc...  Plus they have a pool and I'd love to swim laps occasionally.  Just a thought!

Random note : I've discovered that I love sweet potatoes... plain! 

Have a good day!


  1. Way to go! Keep up the attitude. We will have to try eat healthy at the Camp. You girls will have to tell me what to buy and then maybe you healthy eaters can do the COOKING!
