In church a while back, Andy Stanley preached about how comparison is the thief of joy. I had never given it any thought before but since that sermon I have been aware of how much I compare myself, my family, & my friends to others. How wrong and selfish is that? I love everything about my life- why should I think less of it just because I think someone else has it better? Sure, my life isn't perfect but it's just what I need and I couldn't be happier in where I am. Since I have been aware of the fact that comparison is the thief of joy I have been trying not to compare myself to others. It's a lot easier said than done, especially when it comes to running. Why do I feel the need to be faster, run farther, & be in better shape than (fill in the blank?). God gave me the ability to run & I should be thankful for that alone. I'm not saying that there is something wrong with wanting to better yourself, to want to run faster or farther. But I want to do that for myself... Not so I can brag to someone else about it. Who cares how fast I can run a mile. You don't feel any better by running a 4 minute mile or running a 14 minute mile. A mile is still a mile. When I'm running the half marathon as long as I finish I will be happy with it. Of course I don't want to come in dead last but what happens if I do? I still finished & that is my ultimate goal. I have had this goal of finishing a half marathon since Hazel was born & now that it is so close I am terrified. Have I trained enough? Am I gonna crap out at mile 7? What if i get sick? I am so ready to accomplish this dream!! With that being said: look how cute my little family is

My baby

I just wanted to post a blog about my love for my only child... Well other than my 4 legged child.

-I love the way her face brightens in the morning when I get her out of her crib.
- I love how the non stop questions start as soon as I get her out of her crib
- I love the friendship she has with little J & the way both their faces light up as soon as they see each other.
- I love the way she eats her yogurt & we share licking the lid.
- I love that she knows that you are supposed to lick the yogurt lid.
- I love how she immediately EVERY morning says "moo moo" (movie)... Birds? (meaning Rio)
- I love how much she loves Callie & always wants Callie to cuddle & be win us
- I love she knows that Callie is a major part of our family
- I love the way she smells
- I love how messy & into everything she is
- I love how she isn't afraid of anything (except bugs... But who can blame her?)
- I love her precious angel blond hair that curls at the end of her perfect baby mullet
- I love how hard she loves.
- I love that she grabs my hands (both of them) when we are snuggling & watching a movie
- I love that she rubs my face with her perfect, tiny hands & says "awww"
- I love that she is mine & no one could ever change that
- I love how she has changed my entire life in her (almost) 2 years of life & I will never be the same after being her mama
- I love her sense of humor & how she is always smiling or making everyone around her smile
- I love how infectious her bubbly personality is & how it's changed my attitude toward life
- I love every single thing about her & I could go on for days & days

Until next time

In a rut

We all get in one & it seems that while you are in a rut that you just can't get out of it. It doesn't matter what kind of rut: they all suck. Well, I am in an exercise rut & I just can't get out of it! I was doing really well running 5 days a week, doing my Jillian 4-5 times a week & now I just can't get my fat butt off the sofa! It seems like whenever I get into a routine & start seeing results & changes I let myself have "one" cheat day & it turns into a week. Then I feel so discouraged that it is torture just to turn on the DVD or to put on my shoes. Why, why why doesn't this have to happen? I'm never going to get to my goal if I keep doing this but no matter how hard I try it is inevitable to happen & I hate it.

With all that said: I am going to take it one day at a time. I'm going to make one choice of food at a time. Not gonna worry about the next meal. The only one that matters right now is the one I'm about to eat. Not gonna worry about what exercise I need to do tomorrow. Today I am going to only worry about doing what I need to do today & that is my DVD at H's nap time & running 5 miles when J gets home. Today is the only day that matters & today I am making a promise to myself to make myself a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend. Today I will be the best me I can be.

Until Next time

Saturday craft

Today I did a super simple craft that I think looks totally awesome. Even better: I had all the supplies on hand so it didn't cost anything! Luckily my mom & step dad are renovating their house & had these super awesome windows laying around! So I got 2 of them & I'm planning on making a coffee table with one but this one is now our new menu board!! I love planning out our weeks menus all at once & this just adds to my excitement! :D! Any way all I did was wash the windows with windex & made sure they were clean & then painted 3 coats of chalk board paint on to the glass. Super easy & I think it looks great! What do you think?

I'm gonna add some sort of saying the the bottom of the window (on the white part) once I figure out what I want it to say.

Until next time
