Thoughts for today

Well, my baby girl started preschool today. Wow! I am amazed that the time is going so quickly. Before I know it, she'll be graduating from high school!
She was so excited to go and didn't even get the least bit upset when I told her I was leaving. She said, "Ok, bye!" and continued playing. No biggy! :-)

This morning was jog #3 for me and it just keeps getting better and better! The first time was 4 laps, second time 5 laps, this time, SIX LAPS!!! Without stopping! Me! I can totally see how people get addicted to running. I've always wanted to be a "runner." Yet, I've always HATED "running." But I'm thinking the reason I "hated" to run was because I never gave myself the chance to "learn" to love it. I would rush it and then get discouraged if I couldn't do it long enough or good enough....or my body would hurt. I've really been concentrating on jogging correctly and not over-doing it. I'm really afraid of hurting myself and quitting. But I want to push myself hard to get better...what a cycle! So far, so good though.

We went to a wedding this weekend for our nephew and our new niece (that's really strange to say as they're my age! haha). What a fun time! I even got to wear a new dress and felt wonderful wearing it!

The magic of getting dressed up and feeling good is this: SPANX! Spanx are my lifeline to feeling "good" wearing clothes. I really should buy stock in them. :-) If you've never worn Spanx and have some "jiggle," I HIGHLY recommend that you try them!!!! They'll change your life. :-)

So, I had an amazing phone conversation with a friend today. I'm not going to divulge what we spoke about, but I will say this: I love her and she totally made my day/week/month/year! I cannot WAIT for her name be recognized on a national level. She is amazing, strong, inspirational, loving, beautiful. I've mentioned her before and for those of you who haven't read her story, please go check it out. Do not let the title scare you off. If you like my sense of humor, you'll LOVE this gal! Someday, sooner rather than later, we'll all know her name and know her story. Amber's blog

On another note, I'm signing up for my first 5k!!!! Oysterfest is coming up quick and they do the Shuck 'n Run and I cannot wait to participate!!! My goal: to finish! haha I'm going to keep pushing away and just do it. Can't WAIT!!! I have a couple people I know who are doing the "race" and it'll be fun to see them all on the day. Then, we'll have to go to Oysterfest and refuel on seafood! mmmm

That's all for now. More soon! Love to you all...oh and hey, not to toot my own horn or anything...but my 30th birthday is on Sunday! Woohoooooo! :-)
