Back in the day I used to blog almost seven days a week. Now with extra work projects and a toddler on top, I’m happy if I can get 3-4 posts in a week. But I’m gonna get better again, I promise. Just wanted to let out some random babbles before bed since I’m miraculously not asleep yet.
1. I’m obsessed with the Olympics. I thought it was funny how everyone’s been hyping it up but by the time opening ceremonies started I was totally into the hype as well. My DVR has been recording nonstop. I barely even fast forward through the commercials cause those are even good.
Favorite events: Gymnastics, swimming, gymnastics, synchronized diving, gymnastics. Anyone else see that guy face-plant after missing the high bar a few days ago? OUCH!
Can’t wait to see track and field next week! That’s another favorite of mine. Oh, and I watched the tiny women weight lifters and WOAH! I’ll pretty much watch any of it for a little while. Very exciting and inspiring.
2. Speaking of super fit people being inspiring, I recently signed up for a gym membership. My first membership EVER in my life. I never wanted to before because I knew I needed the motivation and desire to go, and now I have it. We signed up at the YMCA. I bring Lil’ J and go do a class or work out for 30-60 mins then we go swimming after. My husband brings her too when I’m working, and we all go together the evenings he’s off. Lil’ J now gets excited when we tell her we’re going to the gym. I got new workout clothes to get in the spirit of working out and getting fit.
3. Speaking of new clothes, I’m going shopping with a friend today and I couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re both leaving the toddlers and having some much needed mama-sans-kiddo-time and sprucing up our wardrobes. I’m hoping to do a major overhaul from what I have now (even some things from middle/high school… woah!)
5. I’m loving being her mama more than ever. I was bummed for a while thinking I wouldn’t have the super-close-in-age-kids like I thought I always wanted, but when I’m sitting with her doing something as simple as playing with blocks, I realize how grateful I am to not have an infant taking me away from her. Sure, that’ll come eventually, but I’m ok with it not being right now.
