I love Fridays!

Friday, January 31, 2014

For so many reasons, I love Fridays! It's my day off and I get to hit the gym early... totally different crowd day vs. nights. Too many young kids 'horse-playing' in the evenings... man that made me sound old. I digress.... I enjoy Fridays because I get to spend time with my kids! I am a working mom and usually am away 9-10 hours a day. So I treasure my days off and the time I get to spend with them. Also, my dear hubby gets a much needed and deserved break.... he's an amazing stay at home Dad. I'm thankful for the job he does every day.

Today I hit the gym early. 46 minutes of cardio. I'm almost to my step goal (10,000) for the day! I had a healthy breakfast. I've done great with drinking my water.

We went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch as a family. I started off great with a lovely salad, fat free dressing... then I went for the Indian Bread, thinking if I was going to eat bread it was the wisest choice... Learned my lesson... check out the calories BEFORE you eat it... 200 calories a slice, then add the butter on top... phew.... So I'm slightly over my calories for the day. But, I HAD A GREAT DAY!!!

I'm thankful that the sun was shining, that the sky was blue, that I got to spend time with my family, that I got my workout in. Today was a great day!

Did you focus on the positives of your day today? If not, really try. It makes all the difference in the world!

Xavier Bastiaan is finally here!

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Only 2 days of pre-labor, 17 hours of hard labor, 3 solid hours of pushing, followed by a near c-section and it all ended with a vacume extractor..... and now my beautiful son has arrived! He was born at 9:26 pm on 4/25. He weighed in at 7 pds 13 oz and measured 21 inches long. I have never felt this kind of love... he is my everything!

    So happy for you! He is adorable!! Sorry to see the labor and delivery was so tough, but I am sure you have already forgotten it all when you look into his little face. Enjoy every minute of him!!

    I see it.
But I just got a flashback to the episode of Friends, where Ross and Rachel were at their ultrasound.
Rachel: "I don't see it!!"
Ross points it out to her.
Rachel: (After pretending to see it) "I don't see it!!"
