I feel like I've been talking about running a lot lately. I promise this won't turn into a play-by-play [I mean, I'll still definitely talk about how pregnancy panties are vicious creatures and how my kid poops on the floor] But you know how it is when you get excited about something, you just feel like sharing. And since not many of my friends [er, pretty much none] have decided to jump on the running train with me - you guys get the brunt of it.
 I have a date tonight. And no, it's not with my husband. [I'm quite the whore if you didn't know]

Just kidding - it's with the bestie, Emilie! She's been working so much lately and been all 'Hey, look at me I'm pregnant' we really haven't had one. I'm way pumped about it. Even though I've had all day to figure out something to eat that's relatively healthy and have exactly zero ideas.
A few years ago I did Weight Watchers and lost nearly 30 lbs. If anyone talks about weight loss, it's the first program I recommend. So, I finally listened to my own recommendations and I joined again at the beginning of this week. While I am working on my fitness and know I have improved, the fact is I'm still technically overweight. I figure the less I weigh, the less I have to lug across a finish line, right? I feel really good about it at this point - day 4 - and hopefully will be brave enough to share my weight loss journey with you. I know how many mothers, adults, friends, family, everyone struggles with their own self-image - if my insight and my ridiculosity can make it a little easier for them - I'm in.
 Hi, drivers. I just need a second of your time. Can you please be aware of your surroundings? Put the phone down - nothing is that important while you're driving that you have to text. If it is - your ass better be dialing someone.
And please, please be aware of construction workers who are on the road - they don't have a one ton vehicle protecting them if someone hits them because they're not paying attention. All they have is a family at home that is counting on them to make it home. Slow down. Be cautious. Give them as much room as you'd like to be given on a road where people are passing you going 70 mph. Wherever you're going can't be as important as another humans life.It.just.can't.
Ready to hit the weekend! Are you?
