A conversation between my son and I...

The scene opens with me taking the bottle he stole from his brother and tossing it out of his reach.

Nicky: You're so stupid!!!!!!!!
Me: Whaaaaaaaat did you just say?????
Nicky: You're sooo nice, Mommy!!!!!!
Me: That had better be what you just said!

Ah the joys of the angry threes! I don't care what anyone says 3 is much worse than 2! Everything is sooooooooooooooo serious! He had a screaming/crying fit because I wouldn't give him "the paints"!

There were no paints....

A Request

Will all of you who haven't finished your Christmas shopping yet please take a moment to do some deep breathing and calm the heck down! Now don't get me wrong I know even if you haven't finished your shopping yet, you might not be one of these people, but if you are let me explain something to you... Your family is going to love you no matter what you give them for Christmas. If they don't then it probably doesn't matter what you give them they are not going to be happy with it so don't stress over it.

I understand that if your kiddo wants something desperately you want to get it for them. I'm the same way! So I get that, but cutting off 10 people on the way to the mall to buy it is only going to save you about 10 seconds and the likelihood that that is going to make the difference between your getting that special Elmo doll or not is not very high. So please don't drive like you are Mario Andretti, because you don't have his car or his skills …

Week 2 Complete: Couch to 5K

Finished the 2nd Week of the Couch to 5K yesterday and started over on my 100 Pushup Challenge today. I've revised the 100 Pushups somewhat. I'm going to do Wall Pushups instead of Knee Pushups first. I think I'm just too heavy to do knee pushups just yet. My wrists couldn't quite take it.

So I'm going to start with wall, move to knees, and then on to real pushups.

I'm also going to do each day of the program twice before moving on. That should give my muscles a chance to build up to the next level better I think.

Week 2 Day 2: Couch to 5K Complete!

If I lose 100 Pounds will someone please buy me this? Isn't it GORGEOUS?

My Daddy is giving me his treadmill, because he does all his walking outdoors now. THANK YOU, DADDY!!! I LOVE YOU!!!! I promise I'll put it to good use. :-D Woohoo I'll save the money I was going to use to buy a treadmill for a double jogging stroller to use with the boys come spring. :-D

I joined Spark Pages so now I'm more accountable for everything. It's pretty darn nifty. I'm a member of a team called the Slow Fat Runners! That's me! I don't think you could even call what I'm currently doing "running." It's more like really slow jogging. hehehe

Oh well I'm off to stretch and then make my husband and kiddos Curry for dinner. mmmmm

Week 2 Day 1: Couch to 5K

This wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it'd be going up to 90 seconds. We'll see how well I do with the three minutes next week! I can't wait to get our new treadmill. The big question that weighs on my mind is should we wait until the New Year's sales at Walmart come out. It seems to me like they have sales on exercise equipment, but I can't remember for sure.

I also can't wait for my new shoes to get here. I'm sure that is going to improve my comfort a great deal. As long as they fit well. *crosses fingers*

I finished the first week of the 100 Pushup Challenge too. Starting week 2 tomorrow!

Couch to 5K: Week 1 Day 2

Started my Saturday with a nice run/walk session.

Ouchies I'm so sore! Everything is sore!

So here's what I'm doing. Next year on September 20th I turn 30 and I'm bound and determined to be in good shape by then. I don't necessarily have to be skinny. That'd be nice of course, but I want to be able to run at least 10K and do 100 pushups. So I started the Couch to 5K and I'll work myself up to 10K from there. As far as pushups go I'm doing the 100 Pushup Challenge. I know that name needs work! Not near as cool as Couch to 5K.

I think running is going to be good with the munchkins, because I can get a double jogging stroller for them and Bryon is doing it with me. He's going to a Krav Maga training thing in April and he has to be in really excellent shape for that. He is in ten times better shape than me already, but dang it I'm going to be able to beat him in a race before this is over!

I'm changing my whole mind set from...I can'…


Okay, so I just started the Couch to 5K training program, because I need to lose ALOT of weight and I really have always secretly wanted to be able to run. I used to have these dreams where I would run and run and never get tired. They were awesome dreams and very unlike the reality of me in gym class when I was in Junior High and High School. And why don't they do something like Couch to 5K with people instead of just telling them they have to run a mile in 10 minutes and throwing them on the field?! I'll bet actually teaching them to run rather than killing their spirit would be a much better method!

Anyway...I digress...

I'm disgusted because I did a search about starting Couch to 5K and Obesity hoping to find some success stories on their forum and what I found was NOT helpful! I found people ranting about how disgusting fat people are scarfing down their junk food and blah blah blah... Well excuse me for being a-freakin'-live!!! People like this just make me …

I'm Outing Myself Now...

Someday I'm going to think I'm really, really cool. Maybe I'll be a best selling writer with a hot bod that makes everyone jealous... (hey I can dream!)...and then THIS picture is going to come out. And all of that is going to come crashing down on my head.

So I'm outing myself now!

I was a nerd! A Big Ol LAME Nerd!

Yes, that is indeed a New Kids on the Block poster, and a vest built into my t-shirt! AND! I do believe that was even a perm!

Laugh heartily! I did when I saw it!
