Words. A lot of random ones.

Words are hard to come by when you haven’t been around. So many words floating around in my head, but nothing in coherent sentences. Nothing worth reading.

The summer has gone by fast. Faster than I thought possible. It went from spring to HOT so we haven’t spent as much time outside as I would have liked. We went on a lot of walks at the beginning of the summer. Then it got way too hot to spend any time outside, let alone putting a baby in a stroller with little air movement. So instead, I get lazy and the dog doesn’t lose any weight either. We also didn’t get to enjoy as many softball games as I like. With Bryan playing a lot of late night games, we missed the majority of them. When I played early, it was usually too hot for Maximus to be sitting out there. So, the summer has flown by and I’m not sure what we did. Weekends are full of feeding, napping, and cleaning.

It makes me sad that I feel like summer is coming to an end and I didn’t get to do the things I wish I could have. It makes me sad that winter will be here before I know it. These things aren’t making me “winter depressed” sad, but sad all the same. I love heat. I love summer. I love sweating. I haven’t spent nearly enough time just being outside. One of my favorite things to do is sit outside and read a book. I don’t care if its 100 degrees out, I’ll sit out there and sweat while relishing the sun. I’ve only done that a couple of times. I guess I should make some goals for myself. You guys will hold me accountable, right? 🙂

  • Spend more time hanging in the baby pool with the baby.
  • Take the baby to a real pool. Multiple times.
  • Read more books {for fun}
  • Spend more time hanging outside as a family.
  • Get on a regular exercise routine.
  • Eat as much sweet corn as possible.
  • Eat as much fruit as possible. {Snacks during the day!}

I’ve lost sight of a lot of things lately. Health, exercise, and overall personal happiness being the top three. I’ve gotten swept up in life of a working mommy. Between work and baby, I’ve forgotten about me. I’ve forgotten about the things that make me happy. Body image {or perception} being one of those. I’ve run on my treadmill twice in the last three weeks and was surprised to find that I wasn’t sore the next day. I did some core stretches and wasn’t surprised that I could barely move for days! I know, it’s pathetic. But, I did spend nine months growing a baby, so I’ll give myself a little slack. I’ve also gotten back on track with vitamins. I’m not sure if I’ve noticed them or maybe I’ve had energy because of a new routine after a week of vacation. I’ve never felt like I’ve noticed vitamins doing anything for my body, but I always here how other people feel a lot of energy after taking them. I’m hoping to become one of those people. {Maybe I shouldn’t eat so much junk though?}

Now that I’ve rambled and bored you all {if you haven’t moved on yet…}, I’ll move on to more important posts like a certain baby’s 1st birthday (!) and an adult vacation (!) or maybe even becoming debt free (!).
