I can't believe it is already Friday, this week (month, year) has flown by!
I have always loved getting older, celebrated it in fact. Im 34, and have more fun every year. But for some reason this week, so many things are making me feel like I am old and will be an old granny in no time at all. Of course i know that is silly.
- this week I realized that I have to take my son Collin to register for high school next friday. WHAT?? how in the world is my precious little baby going in to high school. Seriously? Sheesh, that went by so fast.
- my mom turned 60 on Tuesday! Happy Birthday mom! Both my parents turned 60 this year. Apparently I have blacked out the last 10 years of my life, they just turned 50...oh man!
-my kids and some friends keep referring to people my age as old(er)! OMG!
Im hoping this pity party about being mid 30's passes soon. It would however be nice to pretend to be old(er) and try retirement out! That would be awesome!
So on to my post.... I have had a crazy busy month at work. I love it though, I think all accountants love crazy deadline times! But in the midst of all my busy-ness and deadlines, I wanted to share some of my fun things that have happened this week!
1. I received some of my #sweatpink swag in the mail this week. I mentioned it before, but I applied to be a sweatpink ambassador over @ Fit Approach. Their mission is:
We believe that kicking ass is best done in pretty shoes. We’ve learned that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities. We concede that sometimes it takes hours to get ready, but we’re also no strangers to just rolling out of bed and going. We’re convinced that we run faster in pink shoelaces. We believe in pushing ourselves, and we believe in giving ourselves a break, too. We’re all about the rush of endorphins and the thrill of the challenge. We’re all for looking great and feeling even better. We’re committed to finding our best fit, and making it stick.
How do we get there?
I am so happy to be part of their mission! I have met so many great bloggers!
Anyways, my goodies, (tank and wine glass, pins and shoelaces) i <3 all the pink!
#2. Mindy @ Road Runner Girl and I are co-hosting a #powerplankchallenge! How exciting! You should really think about joining in. You can read all about our Challenge and Giveaway! And I have to add in, Mindy and I are tearing up the Leaderboard over @ FUDiet.com...WTG girl!
#3. In addition to my #sweatpink goodies in the mail yesterday and today, I also got my Moving Comfort bras that I ordered. And I got these bras 50% off and free shipping. Booya! I ordered the Juno in Grape soda and the Fiona in turquoise. I thin I am going to return the Fiona in exchange for the Jubralee. I am so glad to have more running stuff. I really needed them.
#4. I have decided, and gotten the go ahead, to register for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. The race is in February. This race has been my ultimate running goal! I wasn't sure it was going to happen. We are taking our family on a cruise next June. The 6 of us and Patsy. So a trip for 7, well, I just about had to sell a body part to pay for it. So we are setting a lot of money aside to pay for that trip. But I am going to make it work somehow!
#5. I have gotten in all my runs this week. And I have done my plank ladders every night, but tonight, I did 4 planks and then 1 plank for a little over 2:30. Wow, my abs are sore! Saturday I am running with the S2S group for our longest run yet! 9 miles, here we come!!
It's been a really great week, I am ready to tackle tomorrow and roll in to a great weekend! I hope everyone has had a great week and has an awesome weekend!
