Happy Birthday!

It’s my 1 year blog birthday! Wow. Time flies. I never knew if I’d stick with it. I think I’ve done a decent job at keeping up with it although I know I can do better! Here’s a little recap of what’s gone on in the past few months since my last blog….
Summer is in full swing so we’re trying to spend as much time outside with the little monkey. He LOVES the beach, the park, watching baseball games, driving his power wheels and playing in his sandbox. I enjoy blowing bubbles the whole time. It’s therapeutic. We will definitely have to find a carnival to go to because this kid is a little daredevil and I’m sure he will love carnival rides.
Next weekend I will participate in my second 5k. I mostly walk it, maybe a quick jog here and there and it’s totally for fun. It’s one of the Craft Brew races so there is a little beer party at the end. Clearly I’m going for the beer. My goal is to do just a little better than the last race since I’ve lost some weight since. I am down 28.2 lbs thanks to Weight Watchers and will power! Summertime is tough because of all the yummy food but my health is much more important!
In two weeks my baby cousin is getting married! I can remember when she was born! My little man will be in the wedding as well as me and I just can’t wait to see how cute he will be! I will definitely cry! I can’t wait to celebrate their special day with family, friends, good food and open bar!
I will definitely blog about my race and add some pictures of my little man. Til next time!!

I was running….

Ok maybe I didn’t run per se (I did jog a few times) but I did my first 5k! Let’s just say I was totally unprepared. I’ve been hitting the gym a few times a week but clearly preparation is needed if you want to be successful. I did it more for the cause, and for the exercise. A playground was built in memory of James Mattioli, one of the 26 angels from Sandy Hook. When I heard that there was going to be a 5k I knew I had to participate. I later found out that it was his birthday, and what an awesome way to honor him by dedicating a playground in his memory. I can’t wait to bring Tyler to play on it, and help keep his memory alive. I’m sore today, but happy I didn’t come in last.

1 month into Weight Watchers and I’ve lost 7 1/2 pounds. It’s slowly but surely coming off!
