The boys all wore their scout uniforms (Collin is still a cub scout, but wore Jay's old uniform, and vintage hat from Jay's grandpa, and Jack wore Collin's cub uniform).
Mary wore her "Dorothy" costume from Halloween... and so did her cousin.
It was a very fun party.

Every Wednesday when I workout with Dixie I want to cry, but today I actually DID cry.... literally broke down and sobbed. (I looked at the calendar, and it's not even PMS!) After only 2 sets of the workout! (Five was the plan.) The exhaustion just hit me like a ton of bricks and I felt like I couldn't go on. Of course, she talked me through it and I did two more sets (4 total).
Then I ran 2 miles on Jello-legs. Ugh.
THEN I got back and read an inspiring email from Dixie, and cried again...for a different reason.
THANKS DIXIE! I love you even though I want to curse you sometimes. :)
* I'm down 9 pounds without feeling deprived... eating whatever I want but learning how to control myself and stop eating when I'm no longer hungry.

Today Ollie and Gigs are at our house playing with Jack, Legos, Mr. Potatohead... and collecting potato bugs. And eating peanut butter sandwiches and clementines.
* Jack goes to half-day kindergarten in the morning, and all his friends in the neighborhood go all day, so he usually gets bored in the afternoon without a playmate.

Remember how I could hardly walk the rest of the day and how my knee hurt like crazy for about a week afterward? Oh yeah, you wouldn't remember that, but I sure do.
Guess what! Yesterday, about a month later, I ran 3.31 miles in 36:43... without walking once! That is monumental for me.
AND, my knee isn't killing me!
My new goal = run a 10K (6.2 miles)
Next goal after that = work up to a half marathon
I have been training with Dixie of "Race Day Training." You can workout with her online even if you don't live near me. You can't beat $10 a month. Try it!
