Finish the Week

So the running thing has been good. I ran my first mile on Tuesday evening, not liking the whole starting on a Monday. lol I ran a little under a mile, right around 9 mins....didn't think it was too bad for not running in a year and half. My second mile was last night and I had 4 kids on bikes following me! It was so funny looking. Me and My get-a-long-gang! but it made me NOT want to walk in front of the kids, so that I can push myself to do better so the kids can see me trying to get in better shape and do what is right.

Cora lee has been wanting to run with me. I am not gonna lie, we probably run the same pace! lol But we surprised her last night w/her NEW BIKE! My kids go through bikes like shoes! But I am not complaining. Those kids ride bikes EVERYDAY for about 2 hrs before its time to come in (when the street lights come on!)

T-Ball: Both kids are playing T-ball this year and are on the same team, TEXAS RANGERS! Jantz is so excited and now he wants to play golf, which we have signed Cora up for Junior golf. I love golf! I hope she enjoyed it as much as I did.

FFN! That stands for Family Fun Night, something SHAC committee has started here at the Elementary. One night a month, we open the elementary school and play! That's right play, play games, obstacle course in the gym, Wii Dance, DDR Pads, Scoooter Basketball in the hallways. its so much fun. each month we tried to do something different. It is so great to see families come up and play with their kids. The reason for it is to get families to spend time together. With jobs, practices of every sport its hard to find time to just spend time together and play. plus its FREE! Plus parents only come to school to see their kids teacher, might be positive but then again might not be. In this setting they get to let loose and relax. I am so happy to be a part of this, I know my kids & I look forward to it!

Until next time...Mamabotos

Running :/

Ok, I THINK I am gonna try this running thing AGAIN! lol See I did it 3 yrs ago and I weighed more than I do now. My sister & I would get up every morning for 4 months at 5:30 and go work out. Well, not much a change was happening, not in my eyes they weren't. I participated in the Full of Bull run & the Valentine's Sweetheart run (which was very very cold!) In mind set I thought being a former basketball player it wouldn't be that bad...WRONG! you actually need to train a few months for it. So that is my goal. It seems like when you set a goal you tend to be more motivated to work out and eat healthy. So, what race shall I compete in? hmmmmmm, good question. But I do know as of today, April 4, 2011 I will start my running.

I have downloaded the couch potatoe to 5K workout as well as another one, after having two kids & no more gym membership (due to saving money & getting really sick) I have decided its TIME. To you, you might be thinking, "aw, your look fine, your skinny." Well, there is a fat skinny, ya know what I mean! lol I would like to get toned up! This flab around my mid section has got to go!!!! and yes my booty I would like to get toned up, its seems to sag a little more & more! lol Oh lord, can't believe I am blogging about my butt! lol

So my goal has been set, I shall meet my goal! Between this workout & the ab circle

I hope to look like this is 90 days!

Until next time....Mamabotos!

Sunday, Hot & Windy = Lazy

Wow what a weekend! Spend the day yesterday on the road. First Amarillo to watch the Bobcat Baseball team whoop up on the River road Wildcats 18-8, now they are standing 2-0 in District!!! yes baby!

After the game I hit up Taco Bell! Kids are tired of me going there every time we go out of town but once they get those Cinnamon twists, they suddenly remembered they like Taco Bell! See Mom does know best! lol

Also we stopped at Wal-mart to fill up the car w/gas. That is one of our Dave RAmsey things: we put so much money on a gift card from Wal-Mart and then we use it for gas only. once it starts going low then we know it means no more going going going.

I also got air in my tires!!! Okay may not be a big deal for you but me YES! Plus w/Nissan you have "special" air and regular will not work... Idk... but I was able to get that orange triangle w/the exclamation point off my dash!!! that thing was annoying after 6 months....

Now the kids & I were heading to Tulia, Texas! Yes, my big brother Josh finally got to move into his new house!!! I am so proud of him. He has worked so hard through school, working Pharmacy hours, getting married, having 2 beautiful wonderful boys! they have taken their time in building this house. They know exactly what they wanted & how. Its such a wesome house for a wonderful family. I was to go and help them move in BUT i liked my job even better and that was to watch and play with the kids. yes it was hot & windy, the kids did a very good job of staying out and playing majority of the time. All I know after a long day of moving it makes every one tired and cranky. So that is when we decided to head on out. After the seeing the progress of this house and now its finally done... its a beautiful home where his family will make wonderful memories!

Makes me think back to the house I grew up in. Which my parents still live in to this day. WOW... great times. Even the one in Estelline when we lived there, out in the country... sand blowing, buried cars in the cotton field, being drug on the hood of a car when it snowed, frog races on top of the cellar, playing hide-n-go seek! List could go on forever!

Today was a lazy day, did wash my sheets on my bed...the only thing on my to do list. Kids played out in the springler out back, wearing their swimsuits and roller blading all over the neighborhood. Did manage to watch the movie "Eat,Pray & love" awesome movie... so now I am trying to save up money to go to Bali!!! lol i will be saving for a very long time!

Hope you all had a blessed day!
Until next time...Mamabotos!
