It's Movie Time

October...well it's been fun!

The Month of October has just flown by (yes I know there is still a week left). On the 9th this little angel turned 2 months old! She's really something these days. We're starting to see bits of her personality. She smiles, oh her smiles are beautiful. She loves it when her brother sings Jesus Loves Me to her. We're tried other songs but that's the one that will calm her down. She's awake almost all evening long now and we turn in for bed at 9...she'll sleep until 2 we get up and she eats and we watch whatever tv show we dvr'd the night before and go back to bed til 6. She's getting bigger at her 2 month check up she weighed 9 lbs 5 oz and was 22 1.2 inches long. People still think she's a month younger than she is...she's just a petite lil thing :)

The 9th was also Rocky and I's 6th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by riding the hog...I haven't been on the back of that thing in over a year I was missing my throttle therapy. We did a ride for our old high school's FBLA Champions for Babies for the March of Dimes. It was a quick 100 mile ride but for a great cause and we look forward to doing it again next year.

This kid right here...well he's pretty much AMAZING!!! And his teacher told us the same thing last night at our first Parent / Teacher Conference. She said that Dalton is the happiest kid and gets along with everyone, and that the kid is always smiling even when he's in timeout. Luckily he's not there often but it does happen. We have a bit of an attention span issue during learning time but we already knew that. So if you have any fun ideas/ways you keep your kids interested in learning do share.

I love when these two are snuggled together. Dalton adores his sister and I think she's taken a liking to him too!

Weight has been lost but more needs to go away...

So I think we've already discussed that I have lost all of the weight I gained while pregnant...but since that date the scale hasn't budged :(. It's time to get serious people. I really have 40 good lbs I could lose...but I'd like to start just 10 at a time. So I'm gonna start running during my lunch hour. I'm gonna try the Couch to 5K program to be exact. I think I can do this and we all know that running burns a lot of calories. My goal is to run three days a week to start M-W-F and then try to do 20 minutes of pilates on Tuesday and Thursday. I actually go back to teaching aerobics in two weeks so that will help as well (I'm hoping anyway). I just have to keep the eye on the prize and ignore the temptations I have a work...(um hello who's ideas was it to put the snack box right next to my desk?) So goodbye weight...hello water...smaller portions...and RUNNING (I'm real excited about the running...NOT). Wish me luck and help me stay motivated would ya?

What keeps you motivated?
