Overheard in my bed this morning, as all three girls were having some mommy time.
For no known reason, this exchange occurs:
Miss Rose: Gracie, can you say"rectangular prism?"
Gracie: Can you smell my foot? (while sticking said foot in her sister's face)
It still makes me laugh out loud! I love being a mom and I live for these moments.
Sometimes the funny exchanges have some sort of reasoning behind the content. Not this one though. Just pure kid exchange!
A little update on my current journey...
I've been enjoying me some yummy food. For the most part I haven't over-indulged, but definately not refusing either. My aim is for balance, not going without or going with too much. For me, this is about a lifetime, not just a diet that will end. I'm sure after Valentine's Day passes, I'll get back on track a bit more. Or maybe not, as Bean's birthday is coming up as well. Well, I'll have a few days with no excuses!
I have been able to get in some runs and workouts this week. I could have used one or two more, but the few I got are better than none! I've been trying to do some ab work and arm work on a daily basis. I feel a bit sore in those areas, so I guess it's doing something.
I had one of my best runs in a long time today. I have really been focusing on making myself run faster. Running with the Nike+, on my known route is a big help. I know generally where my mile markers are and the Nike+ will tell me at any time what pace I'm running. For a few months now, I've been running sub-10 minute miles on my shorter runs.
Today, my goal was a 45min run of all sub-10 minute miles. It took me almost 2 miles to find my groove, which is longer than normal. But I finally found it and just kept pushing myself. The more I push myself, I find that my "set speed" is getting faster. When I push, I can run at an 8:30min mile pace.
The verdict? 4.8 miles in 45 minutes. Blew 10 minutes out of the water!! If I remember correctly, that put my average pace around 9:25 per minute. I'm really having to push, and a lot of the time I feel like a lumbering elephant, completely ungraceful.
My new goal? 5 miles in 45 minutes. That would be a flat 9 minute mile. I think I can do it.
