Revisit and recommit in April

Time to take a look at the month of April & see what I need to do.

If I put it out there....maybe someone will hold me accountable??? anyone??? 

Recommit to running 2-3 times per week.  I'm thinking that I can run on Tuesday & Thursday when Eddie has soccer practice.  Then I will need to figure out which day on the weekend to take a longer run/walk.

Cross-training.... I need to figure something out for this.  I'm not sure what I want to do or what I can stay committed to doing.  I have a DVD that I may try to start a few days a week.  I think I'd like to find some stretching to do in addition because I know that will help with the running.

Food....I need to figure out some better things to have for breakfast that will have plenty of protein. 
Keeping up with menu planning....this has helped tremendously.  We have eaten healthier this week because we have stayed on track. 

I have to commit to menu planning on Sunday & shopping on Monday so that we are prepared for the week!! 

Now, I need to get off the computer & open up my calendar & schedule my workouts & the planning of meals.  I'm going to have to write it down & make it a priority. 

Here's to a successful April!!!

Sadness and a tooth

I don't know why but I had an overwhelming sense of loss this morning.  I started thinking of friends & even family that I really don't talk to much recently....for various reasons.  I know there are people put in our lives for different reasons and for a time....but it's always sad.  I don't want to push, so I don't ask anymore. 

I'm such a homebody anyway.....

I'm horrible about following through & keeping in touch, so maybe it's my fault.  But when you ask and get turned down or just stop asking. 

Not trying to be a downer, but I just wanted to put into words how I felt on the drive home this morning after dropping Eddie off at school.

We have our FIRST loose tooth. Wow.  I kept wondering when it would happen & periodically check his mouth for loose teeth.  This morning he said that his teeth felt funny.  So I check & there it was....his first loose tooth. When we went to the dentist a few month ago, the dentist said the first would  come out in the next 6 months or so......

Now, what is the tooth fairy going to do with this tooth??  I'm not sure how long she is going to she better come up with something quick & easy!!  Lol!

I took a couple of pictures of his smile this morning since it won't be the same little boy smile after he loses that first tooth.  Tears.....of sadness & happiness...

So, I was just thinking about how to motivate myself & get to writing....well....I found this post:
I now have my prompts for the month of April.  Wondering if I can keep this up??  A few of the topics might be a little difficult, but I am going to attempt them!!
Anyone want to join me?  Anyone want to follow?? (if so, subscribe to my


I am so inconsistent. I think about blogging all the time, but I just never get around to it....

Anyone out there in cyberspace have any ides for me? 

I carried around a notebook for a while & was writing, but it never translated into sitting down & writing a blog post. I think part of it is also the fact that I can't come up with my focus....

Hmmmm....focus seems to be difficult....I glanced at my last blog post....2 days without a DP....Well, it's been almost 3 months & I have had a total of 7 sodas....2 not my choice the others were by choice & choosing to drink the HEB brand made with sugar....boy were they yummy....

I've given something else up....sweets for Lent.  Most days have not been fact, I have passed on much dessert & chocolate up a church....I've really wanted more salty snacks....chips....not sure if I want to give those up right now...

I completed a couch to 5K program but couldn't make it to the I really didn't complete it.  BUT, I got most of my runs in for the program..... Some days were difficult because I was running and pushing my boys in the jogger....I had one run of 4 minutes running & 1 walking times 7.....I didn't walk during any of the 4 minute runs (even though I wanted to).
I really need to set a regular schedule & get out/up & run....I need to keep it up so I don't lose the stamina that I have/'s already been a week....ugh....why can't I be consistent with anything??? here is my challenge to myself....I'm going to try to write something or post a picture on this blog everyday for a there anyone that will help me keep accountable??  anyone still read this blog or did you give up on me???
