Working Out and Falling in Love!

Yesterday I planned to do Day 2 of my 8 week training. (I almost didn't get it in) This past weekend our good friends Brian and Angel got married! Jeramy was Brian's 'Best Man' and was proud to stand by him during this joyous occasion. After the big celebration, Brian asked Jeramy to take care of a couple of things while they were on their Honeymoon. Now here is why I almost did not get my workout in; There were these fabulous Margarita machines at the reception. When they were returned to Stuart's they were missing the drip trays, they were also short two table clothes. I had to return them yesterday during my lunch. My lunch hour is really the time I have to get my workout in and since I had to return the items, I missed this opportunity! When I left work to get Ella, I thought I should run in Melissa's neighborhood! So that is what I did... I loaded Ella up in the stroller and off we went. I did my training as followed: 1 minute run, 2 minutes walk 10x (average 30 minutes). I think I went to 28 minutes, but that is close enough. Melissa asked me to join them for dinner and I was able to eat a healthy balanced meal, Thanks Mel! When I got home, I fed Ella, did my business(pumping) and got her settled and popped in Hip Hop Abs. I'm so proud of my self for doing this, it was even close to 8pm and that is really close to my bedtime! This video is so much harder then I thought it would be, there is lots of breathing and lots of sweat, but man I feel good afterwards! I even had so much energy that I cleaned the kitchen...

Today is a rest day and that is exactly what I am going to do! It does call for a 30 minute walk, but it is a rainy day and I think I will replace my walk with the Hard Body portion of the abs dvd!

I also wanted to share how much I enjoy being a Mother! I am in love with the thought of having more children... Not now of course, but I definitely want more! Ella is such a beautiful blessing in our lives. Jeramy and I have always thought that getting married was the best thing we ever did. From that day we said I do to now, we have had such a wonderful time together! We were really frightened by the thought of having children and our lives changing. Yes, it has changed and but it is so absolutely wonderful. Watching Jeramy look into our daughter's eyes is amazing...I have fallen in love with him once again! He never ceases to amaze me. He is such a proud daddy and he has every right to be! I am not the best at managing my time, and I tend to run crazy every morning trying to get myself and Ella out the door by 6:30am or if we are suppose to be somewhere, I usually make us late... But Jeramy if you are reading this I want you to know that I am so sorry I am scattered like this and please continue being so patient with me and I love you so much, words can't even explain it! You are my rock and the love of my life! Thank you :) So for everyone else reading this, THAT IS WHY I AM FALLING IN LOVE, again!
