Guess who went pee-pee in the potty yesterday...yay for Jackson!!

With no prompting, when Linda was changing his diaper, he motioned for the bathroom. She took him in to see what he would do and he went! Before his bath last night, I asked him if he needed to go potty and he nodded "yes" and went again. We rewarded with a Hershey's kiss, his favorite. We'll see how it goes!!!

This is what happens when you're not looking

What Momma? I'm not doing anything...

I just discovered that there are these little sticky things in my book!!

Week Four

OH. MY. GOODNESS. This has been the hardest week by far. I am finishing all of my running, but it's killing me! I have no idea how I'm going to move up to 8 minutes tomorrow. EEK! I'm so thankful that the weather is cooling off this weekend. I think that will make it easier for us to run in the morning. Plus, we have a family reunion in South Alabama (I would tell you the town, but I promise, you've never heard of it) and it is usually miserable down there.

Here's my stats for loss this week. I didn't write last weeks down, so these are two weeks worth. Remember, I did have a lot of wedding activities in these two weeks, but the Fourth of July cookouts!!!

Waist: -0.5 inches
Hips: -0.5 inches
Mid-Thigh: -0.5 inches

These are obviously just the areas that had change and I've updated my totals to the right.

Have a great weekend! We're headed South!

Just because...

I thought I would post a picture of Jackson just because I haven't in a while.

Here he is sharing his four wheeler with Tillie. Pause and enjoy this sweet moment. It won't last long!!

Week Three, a wedding and a certificate

Week Three went well. It gets easier to increase the time and length, but I still dread Saturdays when we go up even more. I have to be honest...I skipped my cross training day this last week and it made my increase on Saturday extremely difficult. Well, that and the Bridesmaid luncheon, rehearsal dinner and wedding food that I ate this weekend.

Speaking of wedding...Congratulations to Alison and Patrick! They got married Saturday in a beautiful ceremony in Birmingham.

Mother and Anna had to run without me this weekend. I called to see how they made it and they both survived. We three get to run in South Alabama this weekend. We are attending a family reunion and will miss the group run. I am totally not looking forward to the hotter temperature and humidity for the weekend.

For all of my out of town family and friends who haven't heard. I passed my CPA exam and I am officially certified!! Yay!

Week Two

I never did post about Week Two and now I'm half way through Week Three. Last week wasn't as bad as I expected. We were all dreading the Saturday increase to walk two, run two, but we all finished and nobody passed out! Ha! This past Saturday (the 4th), we increased the run time to 4 minutes. Anna and I wondered if we would come out alive, but we completed the whole thing (1.7 miles) and were very proud of ourselves. I ran last night and it wasn't easy, but I think it's because I went to bed late the night before and all of the food I consumed over the holiday weekend. I thought I would update with my progress of inches and pounds lost.

Chest: -0.5 inches
Waist: -0.5 inches
Thigh: -2.0 inches
Hips: 0 inches (this is the area I want the most!!!)
Weight: -1 lb. (I haven't at all dieted. I know I should...)

I can tell that my legs are toning up as well. This Saturday I will be attending the wedding festivities of Clint's sister Alison, so Mom and Anna will have to run by themselves. I plan on running on Alison's treadmill or in her neighborhood. We increase the run time to 6 minutes. Lord help us! I can't wait for the day when I am running for 20 minutes at a time. Six minutes will look like a cake walk!

Blog Hop

How fun!

I saw this blog hop on my sister's blog and on Kelly's. From what I understand, it's really easy to browse all the blogs without going back to your starting point. Does that make sense? The link is below.

My favorite picture, right now, is this one of Jackson playing in his pool. Notice the mud on him and the muddy water. Plus, he was tickled pink because he had just gone down his slide. He has the best smile. This picture completely sums up my son. He is 100% BOY!

Over the Weekend

I finally have a video camera that will allow me to easily upload my videos and I am so excited. I played with my new Flip camera at Grandma's birthday party Friday night. Here's Jackson and Tillie:

Unfortunately, I forgot both my camera and camcorder for our Fourth festivities. I will have to get some pictures from my mother in law to post. Hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend!
