once again … this time of year … i’m sick. not sure what exactly i do each year to make this happen but once again, it’s birthday/trip time and i’m too sick to enjoy it.
it’s been an exciting month so far!
Sharon – signed up for the 10K winterman and 10K Race Weekend. With Greco/kids/life I don’t have time to train for the half this year. So … 10K’s it is! Maybe come Army Run I’ll have more time, but considering my kids are home for the summer … I doubt it. Instead, I’m gonna focus on a fast 10K. Not just a complete. My best yet – 58:44 at the Resolution Run 2011.
Hannah – She’s turning 6 in 2 days! WOW! Is it she’s old, I’m old, or we’re both growing up! The latter for sure. She’s such a little princess. I couldn’t be more proud! She’s generous, caring, sharing, and a smartie pants! Even last night, we hit up Chapters/Starbucks with her presents and she was insistent that we share the gift cards with Jakey and Ella. Also, she completed the Little Reader’s Program at Oxford! WOW! Now she’s moved on to incorporating French and grade school material. Pretty darn cool.
Jakey – He’s a hockey bum now! ALL day/night – hockey hockey hockey! Unreal. Where did my football loving kid go? He’s now 4 and a half years old and seems the same as Hannah. He’s on par with her for size, ability, and almost smarts. They get a long so well!
So Hannah’s 6th B-day party went well! 11 girls – lots of crafts, lots of toys, and lots of manicures! Not to mention the birthday cupcakes were incredible! Then Ella and Olwen stayed to watch the Smurfs movie … Then Ella stayed for a sleepover. This morning Ella, Hannah, Jakey, I, and we picked up Sydney went to Cora’s – YUMMY!
And now that it’s over … I have to start packing. Hard to do when you’re not feeling up to par. However, I know once I’m down in the sun, the cold will go away instantly right? Fingers crossed! I have today/tomorrow/Tuesday to get better. I love a good challenge This -26ish weather really isn’t helping at all. It’s so frustrating. I just get mad/angered when I walk outside. Oh well – it’s winter.
So I’ve stepped up my Greco game! Started going to more classes, as well as eating weird meals. I hate to say it but I’m addicted! Sad but true facts. I’m not hitting the scale or Body Fat % machines anymore, now I can just tell. It’s pretty cool! I highly recommend it for anyone!
Also, I managed to organize the plethora of photos I have! I got them all up on Flickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/onefineandthreebegins/collections/ … I still have more organizing to do but it’s a start. I still have more photos to upload – they are coming … soon … From now on I’m going to be more organized! I promise!
Ok, enough procrastinating, I’m going to pack … later … maybe tomorrow.
So I don’t believe in resolutions – what I believe in is trying something new, changing a bad habit, and striving to be better!
For instance, in 2010 – I ran 77km. I wanted to run more in 2011. In 2011 I ran 770km. Strived to be better!
For instance, in 2010 – I was so run over with kids stuff I had no time to myself. In 2011 I joined a gym and now I have time away for me almost every day. Changed a bad habit.
For instance, in 2010 – I ran a couple of 5km’s. In 2011 I ran 2 half-marathons. Tried something new!
So with that said, for 2012 I’d …
a) like to try a Spartan Race – http://www.spartanrace.com/ottawa-obstacle-racing-spartan-sprint-2012.html
b) post a decent run time (ie. <55min for 10k, <2hr for 1/2)
c) finish some awesome projects around the house
d) try and ‘keep up my looks’ … i.e.. put more time into what I look like – less Lulu’s and more pants that have buttons
e) try and ‘keep up my kids looks’ … i.e. pay more attention/time/effort to what my kids look like.
f) start to volunteer in much larger aspects of the community – such as the Canadian Cancer Society.
g) … and lots more

*I’ve been off the red meat now for almost 2 months – pretty kinda cool.
*I’ll write more after I get my house/life a bit more organized! … eesh.
Well Saturday night Ced and I went to watch the hockey game Box Style! What an amazing time! It was nice to finally coordinate a night out with Ced, and the rest of the people in the box were really cool and fun! It was one of those nights were I went to bed – with a smile !!!
