Where have I been

Where have I been? I ask myself that most days. It is amazing how quickly the day can pass by and you realize you have spent most of it playing dinner dash, feeding the babe and changing diapers. Then there are those great days were you feel as though you have conquered the world, you have cleaned the house, paid bills, feed the babe, changed diapers and managed to work out too! Its funny both types of days are my favorites. Although the days of me being home with no schedule are about to change. I am starting work next Tues, and I am super excited. My father and mother in law are being extremely generous and letting me work in their chiropractic office again. I like to think I am bringing some good to the office. I am very dependable, organized, loyal....ect I will stop tooting my horn. By I am excited, there is good things about working with family. Like being surrounded by people who love and care about you. It has a safe feeling. I am excited to get out of the house and make grown up conversation, not to say that Kylie is not a wonderful communicator with the smiles and the coos but you know what I mean. I will miss the one on one time that I get with her, but feel very blessed to have got to spend two months at home with her. I am also very blessed that my mom is going to be keeping Kylie most of the time. What a great gift for both my mom and Kylie.
I have been trying my hardest to make some positive life changes. Number one being to eat better. I hate vegetables and fruit. Well at least that is what I have been telling myself for years. I have found that I like several things I thought I did not. Wow right. I like grapes. I am also on the path to exercise. I was always a very active person, gymnast, competitive cheerleader, and anything else to keep me moving. Lately I have been a slug. I have tried to convince myself I just had a baby and I deserved some time off. Time off......over. I have been doing cardio and some straight training and I feel so wonderful. I love that feeling like I am taking good care of myself, and bonus I get to teach Kylie to be a health active human. Jason and I also recently returned to church, we had been away for a while with my schedule for cheer. I always feel so much better about myself when I am attending church, I always feel like the sermon was meant for me to hear. It is a great feeling. I want to be the best person I am capable of being. It is a lot of work but I know that it is worth it.

have you ever heard of the cookbook deceptively delicious? i have it if you want to borrow it. uhh as soon as i find it. it's all about sneaking in healthy additives to food like fruit and veggie purees. i sneak stuff on the kids all the time and they are none the wiser :)
