Happy Holidays

Had a great Christmas at home with the family which all enjoyed all of the wonderful gifts. Didn't make it up to the mountain house to see my family and I am still very bummed about that. The holiday was cold and wet so there were not many outside activities but we had as much fun inside as we could. Looking forward to the new years weekend and a 3 day weekend, lots of little stuff to get done.

I have decided on a couple of things for a new years resolution this year that I am excited about. I usually don't make new years resolutions since almost all of them don't last long but I decided to give it a try this year. With the baby angel coming soon in the next month or so, spending time with the family is and will be priority number 1. We are all so excited and can't wait for the beautiful love angel to join the family. My new year resolution this year is to get a yoga program going for myself and also to get my running back up to where it was. I would love to do some yoga everyday just like the core workouts I do everyday which I can feel an incredible benefit.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

Finally got a run in the other night and I was loving every second of it. I did 4 miles on Tuesday night when the temps were up so it wasn't cold at all. I felt great throughout the run and even my legs were feeling good the whole run. I did have some moments where I wanted to pick up the pace as well as get more runs in during the week, but I have family first on my list.

I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet but I am planning on getting it all done this weekend. They are calling for snow here tomorrow and Saturday but we will see. Looking forward to the weekend with parties and finishing the baby angel's room.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest!

non-stop busy for 6 years

Still no run for me but have been able to do my daily 30 minute workouts twice a day. We have been extremely busy with maybe only two minutes for ourselves. The wife and I did birthing class last weekend which was great. Nothing new learned but nice to prepare the mindset for the coming months. Looking forward to it all and hoping for a better post partum for the wife. The beautiful wife is having the pregnancy discomforts that come along with being 7 months pregnant, but is doing well overall. We are planning on working on getting the baby angels room ready this weekend with paint and fan install which is exciting. I will take before and after pics. I also am helping the community christmas fun by being "Frosty" for a couple hours this saturday. Should be interesting and will post pics if available.

The big boy turned 6 last week and had a great party as well as time with everything. He was selected as a terrific kid at school this week and during the award ceremony at school, the teacher stated that "he has an excellent attitude", which he didn't know what that meant and announced to everyone, "I have an excellent attitude?" Good times and everyone laughed.

Local marathon is this weekend here in town, good luck to all the runners and volunteers.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

no run turkey

Thanksgiving was great with lots of good food and great family quality time. I didn't get a run in though up in the mountains like I was hoping to but I did finish the work I was hoping to get done. The weather was awesome as it snowed for about 5 minutes and then stopped for good with nothing but clear blue skies behind it. We were hoping for more snow but oh well. Did some shopping on black friday with no problems or issues. The little ones had a blast the whole time with non stop playing and hanging out. We have been non stop since we got home and a full schedule all weekend coming to boot. I am planning on getting a run this weekend even though the weather is being forecasted to turn for the worse. I have been getting good workouts in though everyday and can feel a good strong core being built. Now if I can keep it up.

The big boy turned 6 years old yesterday and we celebrated the big day at McD's. He was also selected as student of the month at his school and lost his front tooth the day before. Lots of change and good things.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.
