RR: another 5m I think. Steady, and relaxing. They feel a bit junky in comparison to my Mon/Thurs workouts but everything can’t be a speed workout. Look who’s addicted. I started making an XL spreadsheet of my speed workout sessions Shelby so I will keep doing it and post on fb.
Plank: now I have reached 1.30 on plank I would like to add in a side plank (brave steps I know). Anyone (i.e. zorbs) recommend a good training video with correct form?
NRR1: I am still waiting to hear from the national visa centre for the last stage of my green card. This will be the medical and interview. Sigh.
NRR2: xmas shopping this a.m. playground and park afterwards. I think that’s more for my sanity than DS. Yesterday morning DS had 3 straight hours of playing – 2 at playgroup (we also made a photo frame xmas craft) and then another at the playground.
DS: still sleeping from STTN. I am up and at it and feel very refreshed. He learnt to walk backwards yesterday. It was so funny.
FR: fish tacos. I went grocery shopping yesterday and the shelves were full so I bought lots of things for the freezer too. Have a nice stock up.

ER - ST at the gym.
TR - sang twinkle twinkle at the top of his lungs while at the grocery store. I thought it was cute; probably no one else did.
FR - lunch: sushi with alcoholic friend; dinner: noodles, stir fry veggies, teriyaki tofu.
NRR - getting an actual mani this morning. You might find it hard to believe, but I really hate the hand care that should go along with being a nail polish whore. I suck at filing, I don't have the patience to trim the dead skin or push back cuticles and I barely use hand cream. So once in awhile I pay someone to do it.

RG: Hope you don't mind me asking but what is avg MP for you? And that is awesome about your good eater. DS used to be a really good eater but has recently gone through a picky phase.
bermy - Yay, looking forward to that spreadsheet. I wish I loved speedwork but I dread it. Very cute about the walking backwards.
zorbs - Enjoy your mani!
RR: Went out and ran 1 mi yesterday and my throat was burning and it was hard to breathe. Feeling a little better today so I am hoping I can get in a few miles.
BR: Was very cute with Santa yesterday. He mostly just stared kind of wide eyed but then he started crying and Santa was very quick to hand him right back to us . They gave Dh a stuffed animal and a really nice recorable book. DH and I are going to record it together for him.
NRR: Getting a little stressed about the upcoming move. We have most of the house packed but there is still so much to do. We pick up the truck tomorrow night and will empty our storage unit, and then load the rest Friday.

rg - Glad you had a great run and got your Christmas shopping most of the way done. I am almost done too...just a few stocking stuffers for DH and J! What are some of R's favorite foods? I am struggling to come up with new things for J? He eats really well for breakfast, so so for lunch, and terrible for dinner.
Bermy - Glad you are getting some good sleep!! Sounds like a fun day yesterday and one planned for today! Have a great run...slow down a bit
zorbs - I hate nail care too!! I rarely ever do anything other than cut my nails. I have HORRIBLE cuticles. Who cares what the other people in the store thought. Yum...I want to go to lunch with you.
shelby - Glad that you are feeling better today. I really want to take J to see santa...maybe this weekend but I have a feeling it will be nuts. When do you officially move? That is so stressful especially with being away from DH for so long.
RR - Did 5 yesterday on the TM...SRD today.
TR - Was a good boy yesterday but was tired and wanted to go to bed before 6:30...so I put him down and he fell right asleep. Up this morning at 5:40 (which is what time he gets up). He does new things everyday and it is so cute. This morning we were practicing saying his words...mama, dada, duck, grandpa, bubbles, bye, hi...lol He said them all right after me.
NRR - Lots of errands to run and going to the chiro. Hope I can get it all in. I had to send dinner to daycare for J because my chiro appt isn't until almost. Ugh...I hate that he is there so long.
FR - Was doing really well for the last month with eating and calorie counting. The last 2 weeks have gotten too lax. I need to reign myself in. Ugh...feeling nasty and gross but I can't seem to EVER get full.
Cmg - We have those leftovers in our fridge. Glad you at least got a waddle in! Good for you for continuing with it. Sorry about the situation with DD...seriously...if you don't know for sure then don't write it up. I love that you say slap and kick...lol that is J too. Throw toys sure
RR - nothing today...
BR - playdate this afternoon, hopefully C will stay awake since it's smack in the middle of her usual afternoon naptime...it's kind of a bummer that most activities or outings I want to attend or do happen smack in the middle of her needing to sleep....
FR - leftovers for dinner b/c we have a lot of food that should be eaten before it goes bad..
cm - glad you got in a "workout" on the TM!
shelby - ugh, hope you feel better soon!
zorbs - DH sings to C when we're out shopping and it's loud...
be back soon, need to shower while I can!
rr. Did 4.25 last night on the 'mill. I did 4 sets of Yasso's 800's. Yikes! Can't wait to build up to 10 on those!
nrr. Just making it through til the holidays.
tr. Woke up crying at 5:30, just kept screaming, put her back down and she went to sleep. Back up 20 minutes later. We're up for the day. Yippee!
RR: 5 after work today. On my way to 1200 for the year!
TR: Up at 6:30 this morning. Is seriously obsessed with the bathroom and talking about showers, pee pee, and his bum bum. Thats my kid!
NRR: I had meetings yesterday after work. The district hired a Technology Integrator this fall. I applied for the job and so did someone else in my building. An outside person got it. He is an idiot. I can't stand him. Yesterday, I thought my principal was going to punch him in the face.
FR: I love sweet potatoe tots!

shelby - I can only imagine the stress of the move. Positive thoughts to you that it will go well!
cmg - You are doing an awesome job with your workouts! Hope your appointment goes well.
jen - Having them parrot you is fun. J says "mole" in the cutest way! I am just not looking forward to him dropping the f-bomb or the s-word!
cx2 - Have a great time at the playgroup. Its okay to skip nap every once and a while for social outings.
simon - Yuck on the early wake up. I hope you get a nap or some down time today!
