Day 76 & 37

Good Morning and Hello Again!

Wow- it has been 15 days since I last posted. Guess I have been a little busy.

Let me see, a little recap...

BigGirl is on break from Swim Club until beginning of September.
BigGirl is the 5th from right front row- the head-leaning sweetie.

LittleMan has had a summer haircut. His first ever. I love his surfer wavy hair, but he was just so hot, so this mommy got out the clips and away we went. It looks very nice, but he looks so grown up.
My littleman becoming a man.

They also enjoyed a hot morning parade over independence day. Lots of tootsie rolls for those two.
Then we had some movie time,
Some costume dress up time,
Some painting of bird houses,
   LittleMan had his first trip to Build-A-Bear,
And Superman Invaded the house.

I have been dealing with the house falling apart. It seems everything happens at once.
I have also found myself a softball coach without a team. Hopes are that will be changing very soon. All prayers welcome.
The Hubby is still dealing with his highschool pay job while applying to everything else in site. Still no luck. Prayers welcome here as well.
The pool has sprung a huge leak, so the pool is no more in our backyard. :(
BigGirl has helped me clean out the front closet, and I have been trying to sell/give away some items that are no longer needed. It feels good to move things out.
We have been to the Salt City Water Park a handful of times and we still don't get significant amounts.
It is 105 degrees regularly, and while we have been watching Wheel of Fortune lately, they are in Oregon, and I find myself dreaming of living there. 

So, on to the things you all really checked my blog for. LOL!

Weight: 189lbs (that is down 21 lbs people!)

S2F Training: I am doing what I can with the temps I have been dealt. Ugh. I did my 8 mile long run this past Saturday in 1 hour 36 minutes. Nice 12 minute/mile pace. Not my fastest, but I will be doing 26.2 miles, so lets be realistic. 12 might be just fine.

I put on a pair of jeans last week, for the FREEZING nursery at church. And I got dressed, looked in the mirror and said to the hubby "hey! I look pretty good!"
Now, my goal was to be in size 10 this fall/winter. BECAUSE I have a tote full of really nice items that we hand me down from my mother. I know, my mom, but hey she lost enough weight that she is like a size 2-4. I am not aiming for that. But size 10 is  GREAT START. Maybe a size 8 some day, but I am happy to get to Size 10. (Currently a Size 14 right now)

I went to my first ZUMBA class last week. It was killer! First, my body doesn't move like that, even though I pretend that it does. LOL! I was dripping sweat after that hour of salsa, aerobic, dance moves. I must say, TRY IT OUT! It is a new experience and a fun way to cross train.

Stay tuned................
