SICKLY

That could be the adjective for our household...as EVERYONE is on an antibiotic!
Hubby was first, with a diagnosis of PNEUMONIA last week. Then Dane got a "cold", but I decided to be PROACTIVE...ok maybe "pushy" and thought in light of Hubby's illness he needed antibiotics!
Then I started feeling a little "tingle" in my chest... causing me to cough when I took in a deep breath! Probably was nothing I told myself...but in light of my FIRST FULL MARATHON less than 2 weeks away... I NEED to BREATHE! So, I too have antibiotics! Jackson has been having some drainage from his Right ear... already did ear drops 2 weeks ago...not better...SO follow up today and he is going to have the "pleasure" of his THRID SET OF TUBES!!! Yes, oral antibiotics, ear drops with antibiotics, and surgery next week!
BUT I must say...everyone is being a trooper. Jackson doesn't seem to act sick, Dane a little whinning, Jay's mending, and I still taught the Mommy and Me class today.All in all not bad for a family of 4 on ANTIBIOTICS!

Hoping health is on your side!

It wasn't PRETTY...but we did it!

We ran 23 miles of the "offical" marathon course yesterday!!! IT WAS HILLY!!! YIKES!!! I knew it wasn't going to be easy...but MAN IT WAS REALLY TOUGH!! Mainly, I think becuase of the hills and not enough water stations.... so hopefully 3 weeks from TODAY that won't be the case. The acutally marathon should have water/powerade stations EVERY MILE! I truly think hydration is KEY!!
Not to mention bannans and orange slices...and guu!

Almost there...then I think it will be only half's for awhile! The body takes A LOT of stress training for a FULL! Hence, my body is aching a bit today!!! Nothing some water and advil can't fix...that and a walk/strectch later.
So what did you do today to burn some calories???? I got 2300 off yesterday....THE BEST PART was having a slice of cheesecake last night and NOT even thinking twice about calories!!!
Must be all downhill from here.... I thought of these "hills" of San Fran....much steeper than those from yesterday...but I didn't run 23 miles out there!!

Have a BLESSED Sunday!

I'm BACK!!


Did you think I ran off to become a Las Vegas show girl??? Well as "fun" as that might be...and a GREAT WORKOUT...I didn't change roles of mommy for topless "show girl". It's just been a little crazy for us. We were gone for a fast week-end to Vegas, then home for 2 days, and back across the states to San Franciso California! Hubby had a conference there and I had an agenda...WINE COUNTRY!!! Which we got to visit on our last day there...renting a red convertible mustang and all!!
Once back after 5 days, last week was literally CATCH UP!!! Catch up on the MOUNTAIN of laundry, feeling better (as I had strep throat...did get a Zpack while there), get some miles on the legs running, and just giving lots of LOVE to my boys! THEN it was time for Dane's 2nd BDAY...that was fun... so... there will be LOTS of pictures to come...and stories!
Just wanted to let everyone know I'm alive and KICKING!

Hope you've been getting your workout in!! Anything new?
