Just Because

Took Goober to a play date yesterday and Fifi to one today. They both had a good time, especially Goober. He loved playing basketball with the other toddlers and playing in a huge sandbox full of dry noodles. I love to see him play and get along with other children- it's nice to have a such a friendly kid!
Fifi's playdate was much less exciting, considering all the children in her group can't walk or crawl yet. They all just sat there and drooling on brightly colored toys and getting fussy when they got put on their tummy. It was pretty darn cute.
There was a dad there who was Asian and had a thick Irish accent, and a little Irish fisherman cap on. A new mom with the sweetest little chubby 4 month old boy. She told us that today was the first time she had taken him out of the house alone and she had stopped the car 3 times during a 15 minute drive to check on him. Brand new mommies are adorable, aren't they?
The weather is beautiful right now. I know it won't stay this way for too long so I have been doing all my running outside rather than on the tready this week. Feels like I'm working a a completely different part of my calf muscles. Feels great!

Goodbye Pregnant Lady Pants!

*Does Happy Dance*
I said farewell to my stupid pregnant lady pants today!
So happy they are gone from my life forever.
I went to put them on this morning after my jog and lo and behold, they were to big!
I had to throw a pair out last week as well because they kept falling down when I went to the playground with my offspring. It really is a great feeling to get rid of those darn pants. So I am at my pre-pregnancy weight of my daughter, and now I need to get to my pre-pregnancy weight of my son- I was 125lbs. I can do it!!!
I have lost 25 pounds since September. I don't like to gloat but may I?
Okay:) I am a machine!!!

Sometimes you have to be your own hero...

Holy Moly

I just registered for a 5k race! Very excited! Omg...I can't even believe I just did that! I'm excited. Can you tell?
I know I can do it, because I run that distance every day now. I just can't believe how far I have come. I started running again in September. I could barely walk that far, let alone run a freaking mile! Now I run a minimum of 3 miles a day, and after this 5k will have my eye on the half marathon in February. And then, who knows? Bandit at the Boston Marathon in April?

I know those are pretty big goals, but I have come so far in just a couple months. I finally got the courage to leave and end an abusive relationship 3 months ago. I am finally realizing that I capable of doing ANYTHING I set my mind to. My happiness is important not only for me but for my kids.
I can achieve anything I want to and by golly jolly, I will!

I will leave you with this quote by the lovely Audrey Hepburn

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

My First Born

I found an old cell phone of mine, with pictures I haven't seen in a long time. They brought back memories of being a brand new mama. Not knowing what the heck I was doing, but loving every moment of it. I called the pediatrician nearly 20 times during his first week. I must have called my mom at least 1,000 times!
My little boy, Goober changed my life so drastically ,it's crazy. I never felt so much love for anyone or anything until that moment when I saw the heartbeat at my first ultrasound.
So..I just wanted to make a little post about my son. I used to call him Baby J on my here- but then he grew up! Now he is Goober, my little ray of sunshine.

I'm such a sappy mama...
