Feeling Stronger Every Day!!!!!

Monday, December 06, 2010

I changed my profile photo for December to reflect my 6 mos. on Maintenance! I really DO FEEL STRONGER every day!!! I find I can lift more weight [ my 3 yo, included! LOL!] and since my hubby's days off changed ,so has my workout at the gym. Instead of yoga[1 hr.]+gravity machine[30 min.]+treadmill[1 hour] for 2 1/2 hours 1x/wk. ,NOW I do GRAVITY MACHINE[30 min.] + PILATES CLASS[1 hour] FOR 1 1/2 HOURS 1X/WK. I find I am working MORE on my abs now that I am on Maintenance!
How and in what way are YOU FEELING STRONGER every day????? emoticon

    You are stronger!! And so am I! I look at the amount of weights I use on the machines at the Y and they just keep going up. The intensity of my cardio workouts keeps improving. We're getting stronger every day!!

    That's a fun kit with the people too! Ours is just the house and yes, the "boxed" icing is horrible to work with. Thankfully Adria will have homemade icing for us to use at the party! Good job!!!

    Good Job! My to-do list today was at work -- how much could I do ahead for my office manager/friend who will be covering my desk AND hers for the month? I got bulletins for the next 3 Sundays + Christmas Eve; the Newsletter is ready to proof and then send out at month-end; phone messages reflect coming events (and mine says basically DO NOT leave me messages - I'm gone!) Felt good when I finished the day -- can't think of anything else I could have done ahead. And now I'm On Vacation!!

Starting a Christmas Tradition~~~By the Way,What's YOURS????

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

This year our 3 yo is taking more of an INTEREST in Christmas. Maybe b/c of some traditions I started last year~~like Lighting the Advent wreath and reading a part of the Christmas story from the Book of Matthew in the Bible with my preschooler or counting the days to Christmas using an Advent calendar that shows all the participants in the Christmas story ~~and the signifigance of each one with a Bible verse to match!
He is so delighted to participate in these traditions as it helps {in my opinion } to familiarize him with the origins of Christmas and WHY we celebrate the coming[or ADVENT] of Jesus!
This year a new tradition for him [AN OLD FAMILY ONE FOR ME that I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD to!!]is trimming the tree! He received unbreakable ornaments to put on the tree and his very own FIRST ONE~~ a Noah's Ark to commemorate his love of Noah's Ark since he saw Baby Einstein 's Baby Noah DVD when he was 9 month s old and just LOVED seeing all the animals in it!
Do you have a Christmas tradition that you do or that you do with your child/children each year? Please share.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love your tradition, that is so wonderful to have the little guy so involved about this very special Holiday! I love it! My daughter usually puts the tree together for us, but her and my son pick a different theme color for the tree (we recycle all the ornaments and use them in different ways each year). She decorates with whatever the color is then we put a few other ornaments on the tree. I need to downsize the tree this year. Since I have taken over the living room with all my scrapbook stuff.

    Your traditions are great! Now that my children are grown and live farther away, It really is hard to have traditions for just Husband and me. He used to be into putting up the tree and all, but now that the kids are grown he has lost interest. I've tried to keep the excitement going with the kids I watch, but they are from a different life-style than ours so it's hard. We are making ornaments for them to take home and hang on their tree. Reading lots of stories about the True Christmas and hoping they remember it when they are grown. I've only got another year to teach them about Jesus.

    Our kids love seeing their past ornaments each year as we get everything out to decorate. We give them each one that tells of something they enjoyed/did that year on Christmas Eve. I still love the one from a couple years ago for Maegann...she was baptized and I found a Hallmark heart wreath and put a photo in it of her and Pastor Sara in the water. She cried it was so special! This year a Cabbage Patch doll and a Buzz Lightyear....

    All of our kids' lives we have gotten them each an ornament. Now, they're grown, and we've started doing it with the grandkids (well only one so far). emoticon

Taking The Time With My Lil' One...

Sunday, November 28, 2010

This morning before church, after we ate our breakfast,we got out my 3 yo's collection of plastic frogs & turtles and proceeded to have a conversation about how some turtles are the same and some are different;some live on land and others are sea turtles. Then ,I went on SP to huddle and he came over to me & said"Can you get off the computer & play with me with the turtles again?" Such little things like playing with plastic turtles mean the WORLD to them. So, I'm off to go play....!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Enjoy every moment that he wants to spend with you. I miss those days, although I do enjoy my kids (12 and 15) so much. Kids are really a blessing. Have fun!

    What a Wise Mama you are! You won't regret it, my friend! "Playing with my son" these days takes a different form -- Words With Friends on our I-pads (Scrabble-type game). In the old days -- with the tiles and board, I was on top most of the time ... since he's been playing online so much, he can beat me by 100 points! Oh My -- but it's fun to have that "playtime" with him.

    I love it! HOW I wish I'd done that very thing when my kids were asking for my time and I was sitting on my butt playing hearts with online friends I didn't even know! That was 10 years ago, and I can't take it back, but I try very hard to stay off the computer when they're over now! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is so true.. in my last job I sometimes had to take care of the little boy who lived there too.. he started off at age 5 and is now 8 and I would always have to tell him ... let me finish this up and then we can play... there are so cute when they are young.. oh they are cute when they are older too.. I just have to giggle at my son's "revelations in life" we could tell him all he needs to know but he needs to learn them himself and this is quite a nice time for us too...
