Here's my thoughts on that.
1. I don't think well endowed women were meant to run. I have a seriously awesome bra, but that is some major jolting. I actually googled breast reductions several times. Does anyone out there enjoy running who is in the DD club? Does it get less painful?
2. Running is awesome when it's beautiful. (The above photo is the view from my parents house, looking right where I like to jog.) I knew the beauty of my locale would be inspiration enough to get me out the door while at home. But running around suburbia is really doing nothing for me.
3. I need a good playlist. A wonderful sponsor sent me an iPod Nano as a gift and I've never used it. (Shane on the other hand runs with it all the time.) I need some music to get me going. Do you have any suggestions? I love House music. Stuff that you would find at a dance club. I don't like country.
4. I'm better at dancing. I've been doing Zumba a lot lately and I really love it. I've never been good at sports, but I've always been a good dancer. I'm thinking that might be a better workout for me. And it's crazy fun.
5. Not giving up on running yet, but I'm not running any races anytime soon.
Still, kudos to me for trying!
Here's a little video of that sweet rainbow, just to add a little lovely to your day. That's my Dad's voice in the background, teaching Collin to do something. You can't tell, but it was a double rainbow. I started laughing so hard when Lydia came out and said "It's a double rainbow! What does it mean?" I think she has been listening in to Shane's and my pop culture references. Wish I had that on video.
I'm having the best few days! Kids sleeping in late (incredible!), lots of energy and my house is clean. It is finally reaching into the seventies here. Watched Lydia's ballet performance and she was so beautiful. I'm working out everyday. Had a great date night last week. (Super 8 was amazing!) Shane and I are decorating his new office and I love having a project to do with him that has nothing to do with the kids. Yes, the kids are still driving me crazy in their own spectacular ways, but I've discovered that if you just expect your two year old to act like a two year old and your 5 year old to act like a 14 year old, its easier to deal with it. Of course, everything is easier to deal with when you're rested.
I'll probably have a complete meltdown next week, so look forward to that!
