And I'm not sure how to define that word...either it's committed in the institutional sense (as in I should be) or in the determined and definite sense. Today I made a big step in furthering my weight loss/health goals. Dave and I joined our local gym a few weeks ago, but today I signed up for one full year of personal training. The thought of that is honestly overwhelming, especially as I sit here in slight agony from this morning's workout. But I know me...I need someone else to kick me in the tush, otherwise I'll give up.

I am really motivated now...I even ran on the treadmill this morning instead of just walking quickly. I hate to run, so this was a big step for me. I burned over 600 calories in an hour. It felt great at the time, but I'm a little out of it now. Hopefully I'll regain some energy before I head off to work tonight.

As of today, my weight loss is 4 pounds...only 36 to go!

Emma's first sleep over

I have been meaning to post these for over a week now. Emma spent the night at our neighbor's house down the street. Addison is in kindergarten at the same school and we pick her up a couple days a week. The girls are great friends and it's so exciting to see these relationships forming. They had a great time and I think Dave and I had a harder time with it than she did. She came home the next morning begging us to have another sleep-over the next weekend. We've decided to delve into the world of giggling girls slowly - we'll let her have a friend over in a month or so.

Enjoy the pics!

blogger's block

I am seriously struggling with what to write about. The kids are good, Dave is good, I am good. Dog is three shades of crazy - to the point that I'm considering talking to our vet about drugging her out of it. I know it sounds harsh, but you should really see this dog. She's nuts. And it's a pretty sudden's weird. I hate thinking that we've done something to her to make her act this way. But we've don't exactly have the best track record. We've done everything we know to do to keep the peace, all for nothing. Even the days that she's getting adequate exercise she's still a looney. So, I'm going to call the vet. I'll keep you updated.

So, I guess I did have something to write about...pooh.
