Happy Birthday to my Son Alec!

Today Alec had his 22nd birthday. It is so hard at times to think that he is that old. He is a wonderful caring , loving, son, brother, and friend. I love the man he has become, and I love watching him continue to grow.

I share with you a picture of he and I from 2007. ( Click on photo to enlarge) ALSO ( I love my , much smaller, much cuter Red Sox Shirt in the today picture) .I had taken him to Boston to see a Red Sox game for his high school graduation present. It was such a wonderful time for us to enjoy all that Boston had to offer, and for me, to share with him the place I grew up. It was even more wonderful that he shares my love for the Red Sox with me, and I was able to show him Fenway Park for the first time in his life. The Red Sox played the Angels, his second favorite team, and it was an amazing lifetime memory that still brings tears to my eyese when I talk about it.

I hope Everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend . Be healthy, be sure to get in a workout , go for a run , or a hike, or a walk. Enjoy Life!

Super Fun times!

I have been really busy, BUT I was able to have today off, and that was fabulous! The Sun was shining and it was a perfect day for a photo shoot!!! I met up with the editor and the photographer for the grouphealth magazine for the photo for my story. This will come out in the July/summer issue. It was done on the Soos Creek trail (where I love to run), and it was a picture of me, running. :) they had me run and run the same spot over and over again, he would snap some pics, look at them on his computer, and make whatever changes he needed to my , or his, location. We had to wait from time to time for the bikers or runners to pass by, it took about 45 minutes total. it was so fun watching him get all excited when he would see the perfect shot. They of course wanted me to smile and not serious, and would say " 10 % happier on the next try" lol. it was cute. I totally enjoyed and loved the pictures that they took. He got the perfect one and asked for an insurance one, and he got an even more perfect one. He loved the light, the bounce in my hair, the smile. TOO MUCH FUN!!!

So here is a picture that Scott took of me before I left for the shoot. I may get to see the ones they took, I am not sure, before it is published. Oh, and did I mention I will be the centerfold?? lol I told Scott how great is that for him, that he can say he is married to a centerfold . ;)

Long time no blog!

Crazy Busy.
That is my life these days. I sometimes wonder when it will slow down. I think I need it to slow down. Where I am at now, my weekends are for full recovery from my week, and also to get things down, errands run, spend time with family, ect... I would love to catch up on sleep, and I would love to have some time to spend with friends. I have had nothing as of late. I also spend any free time I have on the weekends planning out new workouts for the following week. Any idea how time consuming that is? and then to watch all these on demand workouts and they are all the same thing over and over again. it sucks. lol This past weekend I also had to address Jake's Graduation Announcments, I will be mailing them out this week. I am super excited for him, and super sad for me. lol

and my butt is getting big. I dont mean fat, I mean big, round. which is better than what it was, FLAT, but sometimes I catch a glimpse of it in the mirror and I do a double take wondering what is following me back there . :) Seriously though, how can it not with all the squats and lunges I do. I seriously can not how many I do, but it is for sure 500 + a week.

I have a photo shoot for GroupHealth Magazine coming up, it was going to be today, but it got postponed till THURSDAY due to this awesome weather we have been having here in the Pacific NorthWest. Awesome I tell you.

I hope everyone had a fun and fit week, and you did something wonderful for yourself!
