Color Run (25th). Car Accident. Crazy Day. (Pics)

Thursday, May 30, 2013

It seems that C is the letter of

the day! I've been pretty inactive on SparkPeople lately. Don't take this the wrong way.. I haven't given up. I've just been a little side tracked.

School ended on the 16th of May for my monsters and we've been on the go ever since. They have been doing roller derby every week, Levi has Taekwondo twice a week now, and he also has Coach's Pitch twice a week. Roller Derby ends this week but gymnastics starts next week. No rest for the weary in this house! Haha.

I'm pretty much at a stall (if I haven't gained a pound or two) with my weight loss. I'm okay with that.. but I really need to get back to tracking everything I eat. That is the only way I tend to lose weight. Most of my exercise has been working on fixing up a trailer house that we bought a couple months ago. Plenty of heavy lifting and running back and forth. We have a good start for only getting in a few hours 3 days in a row.

On May 25th I did my first ever organized 5k Run/Walk. It was The Color Run in Omaha. Soo fun and soo worth it! I walked/ran with my mom. It made it really special for me because I have wanted to do a run with my mom for a long time and it was really the first thing me and her have ever done alone together (Long story.. but I won't explain now.) It made me feel good that I did for myself for once because I am always running around for the kids. I was finally in halfway decent shape to do it! My kids and husband were at the finish line cheering me on.. and throwing some colored powder at me. Don't get me wrong when I say I was in halfway decent shape to do it.. You just have to be able to make it the 3.1 miles. I saw people of all shapes and sizes doing it and it was SUPER motivating. Next year I think I am going to let my kids join me. They really wanted to do it and they loved that I was full of color at the end.

I had this far typed out but wanted to add pictures when we got home.. but now I have an extra paragraph and pictures for you all.. Took the kids to roller derby practice tonight and ended up getting t-boned when we left. Luckily, my in-laws were not far behind and helped get everything taken care of and got us and our vehicle home. I am completely frustrated since this makes 2 out of 2 cars out of commission. Our explorer's transmission went out and now our mustang is totaled. Oh.. Did I mention the driver didn't have a license? That was what her daughter told us. She ended up going to jail because of it. We are all safe and sound. The car, however, is not. Cop estimated damage at $5,000+.

I was driving towards the bridge when she hit me and spun me sideways.

    The Color Run looks like a lot of fun! I hope to do one soon. And thank goodness no one was hurt in the car. How scary. Hope at least one of your vehicles is fixed now.

    Can you adopt me? Love how much fun your kids are having! :D

    Huge congrats on the color run! That is so exciting that there was all different types of people. I know I could WALK the 3.1 miles but I'm always so intimidated to do something like that... I guess I'm just a chicken! Great pics with your mom, that is so great! :D

    I am so so sorry about the accident, I am so relieved you are all okay but I'm sorry about the added stress of getting the car fixed. emoticon
