What's encouraging: after walking at a BRISK PACE for an hour last night, I ran for half a mile. Without stopping.
What's discouraging: I couldn't log it in my fitness pal because 4 mph is not listed as a jogging speed. Whatever, fitness pal. I was totally running.
Anyway, here are a few instagram shots from this past week.
Things I'm loving:
- zucchini by the bucketload.
- homemade muesli (not homemade by me though because I have people for that)
- chocolate chip oatmeal cookies (homemade by me because I do have priorities)
- super cute mug filled with coconut m&ms from Vegas, Baby! (aka: Kelly and Dave, who were grateful I kept their boys alive while they were gone.)
He found this little baby and saved it from Miley, our wannabe bird dog, before reuniting it with it's mama, who was one chirp away from a birdy heart attack in the bushes nearby.
Today for the last day of vbs the kids performed a mini-concert for all the parents. It was so cute and included hand motions, a little dancing, and some loud interruptions from Blake who A) had to go potty midway through and announced it for all to hear while jumping up and down holding himself, and B) came running to say hi and give me a hug mid-song when he noticed me in the crowd.
When it doubt of what to do with five children: fill them up with sugary shaved ice and then let them loose on the trampoline, telling them it's nap time as soon as they come back inside. Mwahahaaa. The backyard suddenly became very interesting that day.
And now I'm ready to enjoy the weekend with my peeps. Happy what-the-freak-it's-almost-4th-of-July-already?!! Have a great one :)
