Lots of Pictures

Sunday, January 31, 2010

This weekend I get my rewards for being good while out of town again. I get a lotion and a book. I also meet 4 week streak on exercise and staying within cal. range. I did it without using ANY of my "free" days!!!!!! I'm so excited about that, considering there has been trips out of town, buffets, pot lucks, etc.

My daughter hip hop team did great Sat. they got 2nd out of 3 teams :o)

Today I was very down and out, but a serious of events and I'm doing better (some were me staying on track, getting my Ifit Live download finally, and writing a letter to myself)

So like I just said when I went to download the incline trainer to see if there was an update (which I've done atleast every other day for the last month) there WAS!!!!!! It was soo cool I can't wait for it to be fully functional!!! Below I will post several pictures from my journey on it today.

Also the kids and I made a healthy collage this afternoon. Here are the pictures from the collage first:

Coryn looking for healthy pictures and words

Chance cutting out pictures

The start of the collage

Coryn holding the end project and a few pictures of it up closer

Now here is my first Ifit Live workout

Here is the workout it downloaded for me

Here is a picture along my route

Almost half way

Getting there

The picture that came up right after where I was in the last picture

Going up really steep almost 20%..... am I there yet

Oh look alomst there. Anyone know what that street is :o)

Last bit of climb before I finished :o)

If you enjoyed these I'm also going to try to upload a video into a video blog. It's a short clip that I took during my journey today :o) I really love San Francisco it was neat to watch the pictures come up since we have been there a few times.

Most of the pictures were taken by my honey when I said quick come see this picture, etc. Thanks Trev

I took the really blurry one where I was almost at 20%, guess I wasn't going slow enought lol

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

    Thanks everyone!!

Pita Jungle was awesome!!!! I got a cup of tomato soup (let the kids eat what they wanted first to dip there pita chips) roasted veggies light on the oil, 1/2 small roasted red bell pepper hummus with half wheat pita, and a small side of tzaziki. Yum Yum and had enough room for a NSA Ultimate Chocolate Mocha from Coffee bean. Two of my favorite places :o)

Feeling better, motivation still strong

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Wow yesterday was almost a complete rest day. I ended up sleeping almost all of it. I didn't want to end up being sick forever and I really didn't feel good. Everyone trying to share... no thanks!!!!! So after resting all day I picked up the kids from school and dropped my daughter off at her hip hop practice. Then I took my son to get some cool running shoes. He is so excited about them and about running!!! Yeah!!!

Tuesday was a bit crazy I had to go to an appointment at my sons school in the afternoon for what I thought would be about an hour. It turned into a two hour meeting. It was to go over an evaluation they had done on him. They have been observing and testing him over the last two months. They have diagnosed him with ADD, depression, and anxiety. there were many other things but those are the main ones. They are putting him in special Ed for educational, behavioral, and emotional. They are going to have people at the school work with him and sessions for each of the areas. I really hope this helps. He just turned 9 and is in 3rd grade. Most of his educational testing was right on but he is at 1st grade in writing and comprehension and 7th grade level in math. He also said his least fav. subject was math. The tests also say dyslexia........... WOW I just pray and hope the stuff they are doing and maybe the running with me will all help in some way.

So after the meeting at the school I had leadership pictures for the group that I belong to at work, after rushing to them, we found out the photographer was a no show. Those had to be rescheduled then it was off to help out at a seminar. :o) That went well, then when I woke up I felt like crap. I really thought I dodged all the crap going around. On the plus side I may have warded it off pretty fast. I will keep my fingers crossed. This weekend we will be in Phoenix Friday night and Saturday again for our younger daughters hip hop competition so mini challenge once again to stay on track.

Hope everyone has had a good week so far and has great plans for the weekend. I may try to have a family walk/run if the weather is good Sunday :o)

Here is a picture of my son last year in T-ball

    Oh Amy! My heart goes out to you and your family in dealing with the issues you are facing with your son. My son is Bipolar, ADD and possibly Asperger's, They haven't haven't been able to officially dx him on that side yet cause of his age so they say. He also had low scores in reading comprehension and writing. He's 15 now but our issues hit hard when he was in the 3rd grade. He's been in special education since and it's been a crazy battle with IEP's and meetings. If you have any questions, let me know, i may be able to help a little. My best advice is as a parent you have to push hard for the proper services and made sure that they follow through. Know the laws and research as much as you can, school districts tend to slack if the parent is not knowledgeable. That being said, I did find that we received the most support and help here in AZ, Amphi School District was really on the Ball with my son, it was a breath of fresh air after all the fighting I went through.

Sorry you weren't feeling well, but I'm glad you got to rest. I Know you are working your butt off but you need to rest at least once in a while. Enjoy your trip to Phoenix for the Hip Hop Comp!! I bet it will be blast! Sending you lots of emoticon

    I wish your son the best of luck. I think the running is a great idea. It's something where he probably will succeed since he enjoys it. It will help build his self esteem! I can relate, I am dyslexic and ADD and remember how trying it can be in school. However when I was growing up they did not have any special programs.

Family Running

Monday, January 25, 2010

Tonight my son ran a mile. He is 9 and ran almost the whole thing at 5.0 he did so good. He is going to try to start running several days a week :o) It will be cool to run in an event with him someday. Below is the picture from after his workout. It's almost my bedtime so that's all from me for tonight.

Hugz, Amy

    Congratulations! I love watching the kids run the chicken run at turkey trots. Especially because a lot of those same kids then do a 5k with their parents right after.
