Random thoughts....

***why is it still so hard to run 2 mins? At about a minute and a half...I'm TIRED! lol Today was my 2nd day this week doing the run2mins/walk2mins. I did it, but my ankle was hurting as well as my right knee. Think I'll do this for another week before I try to move on to whatever is next. I did level 1 (run1/walk1) for two weeks as well. We shall see.
**I remember one day before going to the gym, I kissed Mikey and he asked me if I had lipstick on because he felt it on his cheek I guess. I said "no", that it was Chapstick. And he asked why I was wearing it. Miguel said it was "because Mommy wanted to look good at the gym." It's CHAPSTICK not LIPSTICK! lol Besides, anyone who has seen me while or after I have worked out knows that there is nothing GOOD looking about me! I am sweaty, my hair is a mess and my face is RED!
***those green cargo type pants that were my next goal to try to fit into.....FIT! The last time I tried them on, they barely came up on my hips and I couldn't close them. Well, they close, but still a bit tight on my waist....soon, soon :)
***still on the whole exercising thing...I feel GOOD. EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. I try to talk myself out of going to the gym (yes,, but after I go, I am so glad that I did and I feel SO much better. I have to admit that I feel guilty on the days that I don't go, but I am going at least 4 days a week, no less than 3 with the exception on last week, I only did 2...monthly woman issues :( But my body feels awesome.....I don't feel blah or and that's a GOOD thing :)
***I got the idea off of Stephanie Howell's blog to make these "things" lol for Valentine's Day for the kids and Miguel. She used jars that she decorated to put little slips of paper with things she loves about each person and each day up until Valentine's Day, they pick out a slip of paper and read it. I thought it was such an awesome idea! So I made my own version of them. Since I didn't have jars, I made some hanging pocket type things that I decorated with scrappy goodness and a pic of me w/either Lij, Mikey or Miguel. The look on the kids faces after they read their little slip of paper each morning is priceless! <3 I guess Miguel likes it too....I hope! :)
***I've been doing some scrapping here and there whenever I have time and the mojo strikes. I'm up to 12 layouts this year so far. Last year, I didn't reach my 100 layout goal, but that's okay. December was kind of rough with my Grandma passing and just life in general.
***Elijah auditioned and made Glee again. He is getting better and better with his music and his confidence. I love that music is pushing him to come out of his shell more. He amazes me with how fast he can pick up and learn to play a song. I think he needs a little more work on learning how to make the most of his voice, but he does have a voice for singing....just needs more work. I am so super proud of him :)
Well, this morning as I was thinking about this post, I had more things in mind that I wanted to make note of, but they seem to escape me at the moment! I just wanted to make note of a few things going on right now for my own benefit. If anyone reads it....BONUS! :)
