So Much To Do!

Maddie’s birthday is this coming Saturday! My baby girl will be a year old. I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. 🙂
We’ve decided to cook out at our local downtown park, inviting friends and family to bring their favorite side dishes, with blankets laid out for picnic style munching. 🙂 I’ve got a few toys for the older kids, some kites and games, and bubbles gallore.
So, this week is about getting everything in order to sit down and relax, celebrating Maddie’s first year of life. 🙂 Oh, and I can’t wait to see what she does with some paint and canvas. We plan on having her paint a canvas each year on her birthday and then hanging them up around her room or the house. I’m so excited to see what she’ll come up with. 🙂
On the work out note, everything is going well, I’m walking for 3 minutes and running for 5 for a good 45 minutes now. It hurts. I want to stop, but I always keep going. Today is day 40 and I’ve removed 10 pounds and several inches. I’m very happy with the program, but, well, it’s a workout and it’s hard. 🙂 I’ve also discovered running on the treadmill is much easier than running on a sidewalk. The treadmill at least pulls you along while running outdoors, you truly must move your own body weight. I look forward to the day when this body weight is much easier to move. 🙂
Happy Thursday, Love!
