Good evening

Boy am I tired. I am such an old lady -it's only 8pm and Im ready to put on my slippers and moo moo, set my teeth on the bathroom counter, and call it a night. Not before I have some of these AMAZING ravioli's though

Thank you Costco!!!!!!

So this morning was my 1st day back at the gym, and guess what? It went FABULOUSLY! I got there a tad past 4:30AM (an unGodly hour!), and hit the treadmill. I pounded out 30 minutes ladies! I only wanted to hang out at the gym for an hour, so I could get back home before little dude woke up (want my hubby to get his beauty rest). So anyways, I did a 5 minute warm up, then ran at a 5.2 speed for the next 20 minutes, then walked the last 5. Sweat was POURING. I thought about taking a picture, but decided it was best I didn't. I figured I'd lose some follower's over that crazy and unpleasant picture. I was pleased with where I was at endurance wise. I was expecting a lot worse. I ran a little over 2 miles though, so I'm going to have to work on that. I used to be able to run a 5K (3.1 miles) in about 30 minutes on average. I'll get there :)
After waking up my heart, it was to the weights I went for my leg workout. I didn't feel anything when I left the gym, but now? OOOO Lordy! Mama has some sore thighs - SUCCESS!!!
My plan is to go tomorrow and Friday morning and then take Sat and Sun off (unless I hit up a yoga class on Saturday? Hmmm....). I am POOPED. I had a mommy and me date with Jenni and Sara so Troy never got a nap longer than about 20 minutes, so that boy was a handful this evening. After being bathed, lotioned, prayers said and swaddled, he is out for the count. Needless to say, I am looking forward to my head hitting the pillow. So say a little prayer that this determined mama can get her butt, that needs to be in a bikini in 2 months, up and out of bed and to the gym at 4:30.

Wonderful job! I just ran outside for the first time in awhile and did about 30 mins walk/running. I almost bought a membership to Cal Fit the other day!
