Bad Run

I had a bad run this morning. I know for some that doesn't mean a thing. I got up and got to the gym and ran didn't I? I didn't understand when my friends would say they didn't have a good run and now I do. I was so pumped to get to the gym this morning. I was even not that concerned about the ladies locker room filled with old naked women! I went upstairs to the track and started to run. Then my bra straps started to fall down. For the first full lap that's all they did. If I lose anymore of my boobs Chris is going to leave me for a bigger boobed lady!! Well no he wouldn't but he wouldn't like me having to buy new bras again. I think, well I know that I started out faster than I have before, so then my breathing was off. The songs just were to slow. I tired to work with them, slow my pace and get my breathing back. That didn't work. My legs were so tired. I stopped for a turn and talked to myself. "Push through this, I've got this. Cake walk!" "Oh yeah guy who is just walking, yeah you just got chicked" Nothing I said to myself got me to get through it. I think I ended up running 2.66 miles. I went to the treadmill afterwards. "Hey maybe I can finish off my run here. I have never ran on the treadmill lets see. I can just zone out and get it done." Well I forgot I needed to put my cell phone back in my arm band, so the half mile I was on it didn't count. Grrr. 
I guess I am just frustrated on top of this mornings run. The scale has not moved, and I am still wanting to fall asleep as soon as I am done with a run, among other things.  There was a guy on the track today that just looked awesome! Running for him looked so effort less. Will running EVER be like that for me? 
My first ever 5K July 31st 2013
It took me almost an hour to run/walk the whole thing.

So as you can see Sept 18th 2013 was a big improvement.

I'm Coming Out!

I think that it's time to finally come out of the broom closet and tell everyone. 

I am a Norwex consultant. 

I signed on with my friend Natalie with like 6 hours left to do it. Yes I just signed up for free stuff!! Duh! Then I was talking to the ladies in the church office and realized. I really do love these products! That and customer education was not happening!! I have in fact told a couple of the ladies that I will be picking up their cloths on Sunday and washing them in the Norwex laundry soap!! Wouldn't it be wonderful if I just used my cloths for cleaning the office, well and at home of course. I know that one lady brings her little one in and another is pregnant. I would feel so much better not using chemicals around them!! I did forget to say that it took me half the time to clean the office even with Avery "helping" me. Now I do have another friend that cleans the office also. So what normally would take two hours with talking, took one and we still got to talk! The floors in the bathrooms were even dry! 

I know that once I reach out and start telling and showing people what these cloths can do they will be impressed and want to get rid of the chemicals. I keep remembering that smell does not equal clean. No smell is clean. I am not crazy when I say I will come over to my friends houses and clean. I love to use the cloths. It's like making sure they will do what they say they will. I love them I love them I love them!! Now if I could only get my husband to let me buy one of everything!!

When Did This Happen?

I can not sleep. Is it because I am to excited to sleep like that little boy the night before going to Disney World? Can I not sleep because Avery just got up and peed in the hallway, and in the potty? Is it because my ankle is itching? 

Off Ramp Warning!!! 
I got "taken down" by a St. Bernard named Ruby. She isn't even a year old and I love her. She just likes to run circles around you while on her leash. I just happened not to jump over it once and she took me down to the ground and I now have a slice on my right foot. It's healing, but it's very itchy!! 

Back On The Road!!! 
 Maybe it's all of the above. I think that it just might be because I will have a high school freshman tomorrow morning. I am just having a hard time wrapping my head around it. Four more years with this one and we are almost done. She will not need us, (me), on a everyday kind of level. The one she is going to is not a typical high school thank goodness. One floor and a lot of nerds. I am worried that she is going to get lost. Get her heart broken. Get lost in the shuffle of everyday life in a high school. Chris is worried that she will be picked on.

Now what about the little one? I am having a hard time thinking about what I went through when Whitney was that age. Things changed. She came home smelling like..... school. Not my baby. I told Whitney when she was in Kindergarten, ok now go make Mommy friends. I have friends this time. I was super(ish) involved. I would come into class and help the teachers. Will I be able to still do that? Will I be able to be as involved if not more than I was when Whitney was little? 

How do I balance everything? 
I don't want Whitney to feel like she doesn't have me there for her. 
I also want Avery to have me around as much as Whitney did. I want to give Avery the same life, but better than we were able to give Whitney. How do you do that with kids that are so far apart in age?
