Annnnnnd It's Go Time

Oh Monday, why are you such a sh*t!?  You always arrive too early and seem to drag on until the very last second.  Boo to you. 
Anyway, somehow today I feel extra motivated.  I am ready to kick my own a$$ after slacking the last week so I have decided it's go time.  I have less than 2 weeks until my 1/2 marathon and I feel about 80% ready.  So here is my game plan up until I run 13.1 miles.  EEEEEEEEEEEEK!

  • Run for 45 minutes (easy pace) Done! well, I only ran 30 minutes because I wasn't able to start until after 8:30pm

  • 360 Abs (2 minutes) More like 1 minute...these b*tches are hard!!!!

Okay, I know the above plan is a lot, but I really want to whip myself back into a routine.  I know it will pay off so I just need to stick to it.  Warmer weather is FINALLY in the forecast, which always motivates me so my goal is to stick to this's just 13 days after all.  I like short term goals because I don't get bored as fast and I can usually stick to them.  After the 1/2 marathon, my goal is to work-out 4-5 days/week.

In other news, KB popped a tooth last week!!  That little man is growing at the speed of light!  Here are some pics from the weekend:
Not feeling the sweet shades I got from work
Silly boy
Even though the hat is cute and all, I think it would look better if that green was purple instead :)
"Sunday is supposed to be nice", they said...
"Sunday should be nicer than Saturday", they said...
If you look REAL close you might see a little toofer on his bottom, left poking through
Welp, see ya later suckas!


  1. Your little guy is so cute! I have a one year old and I remember the day I saw his first tooth! The level of excitement over the "little" things, still makes me laugh!

    1. Thank you!!! I was just talking to my mom saying how excited I was when he put his arms up for me to get him out of his carseat yesterday! Oh, and I am pretty sure I cried when I saw his first tooth! The little things are the best! :) Thanks for checking out my blog!
