Days 11 & 12

Yesterday (AKA Day 11) I GOT UP WHEN THE ALARM WENT OFF THE FIRST TIME.  I will give you a moment to let that sink in....


....and it was at 4:30!  On Wednesday afternoon Jenee and Marcel told me they were going to meet at the gym the next morning at 5:30 and that if I didn't show up Jenee would punch me in the face.  At 4:30 I turned off my alarm and thought it's waaay to early for me to get up, crap,  if I don't Jenee is going to punch me in the face.  And I truly believed she would.  Therefore, fear made my ass get up.

At 5:10 I was dressed and fed with 1/2 of a Monster in me as I headed to my car.  I got to the gym at 5:30 and Jenee was on a bike.  Marcel was not able to make it, but she more than made up for it by going with us at lunch and this morning and after work today.  I did my couch to 5K run and then weights for my legs.  THEN on lunch the three of us went to the gym again and worked out, and we are quite proud of how awesome we are and hope we still feel the same in February.

Today was Aiden's 6th birthday and six may not seem that old, but I got to thinking and in 12 years he will be 18.  And that  led me to think oh 12 years is a pretty long time....until I remembered that I've know my husband for 12 years now and I can still remember the day we met like it was last week. And then I thought about how older people are always saying time flies, and I'm starting to feel that way.  That's good and bad....good because that means at the current rate of exercise and better diet we will be hot bitches in no time!  Bad for the obvious reasons.  

Marcel and I went to the gym after work today and we both did the couch to 5k.  It was bitterly cold today so we deserve a double pat on the back for going.  Jenee couldn't go because she was busy getting her face numbed.

I bought Aiden a Burger King kid's meal for dinner for his birthday and was worried about being tempted to buy something for myself.  Marcel helped me conquer this fear by giving my brain a visualization of someone gross and creepy making my food while naked.  That killed it for me....until I saw a picture of a "warm, oreo brownie sundae"....assholes. But I prevailed and only purchased the kid's meal.


  1. Life is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.....

    Was the kids meal the only thing Aiden got for gracing our presence 6 years ago?

    1. Yea...should I have added an ice cream? :)
