More randomness with maybe a little TMI

Have you been wondering where I've been?  Oh, you didn't even notice I didn't blog yesterday?  That's ok :)

I have two excuses.

1.  Our internet stinks!  We need to have the Charter guy come out AGAIN and figure out why it never works.  It seems like we have to call every couple months.  It's really annoying.  Our iPad was connected and my phone, but I don't like blogging on either one of those things.

2.  I haven't been feeling well.  My body is officially back to normal after having Kase, if you know what I mean.  I've been enjoying cramps, back aches and headaches (including full blown migraines on Saturday and Monday).  I haven't missed this the past year!

When I have been feeling like crap, I tried to tell myself that this is nothing.  I pushed two babies out.  I can handle this.  But it still sucks.  And I still like to complain.  Oh, and for those of you that think just because I had an epidural, I didn't feel ANY pain.  You're crazy.  Sure, I didn't feel the contractions once the medicine kicked in.  But I still felt every bit of my 7 pound 11 ounce and 8 pound 9 ounce babies being pushed out.  So until you've done this, I say keep your yapper shut.  Sorry, just had to get that off my chest :)

Some exiting news...we finally got our treadmill on Monday!  Remember we ordered it on November 5th?  Well I called last Friday to check on it.  The guy said he'd have to check into it and call me back.  Three hours later he called and said it had been sitting in the store since last Wednesday.  The really frustrating thing is that Tyler called that Friday and they said they had no information on it at all.  Well, as they said that, our treadmill was sitting in the store waiting to be picked up and delivered.  So annoying!  But anyway, it's here now and I enjoyed some trashy TV while using it last night.  Sister Wives and Giuliana & Bill.  I sprinted through the commercials and walked fast during the shows.  It was hard to hear while I was running so this worked out the best, haha.

Three miles in about 45 minutes and 282 calories burned.  Not a bad start!  I told you guys that I lost 9 pounds in my first month of really trying to lose weight.  Well I've been a slacker since then and am stuck on that.  I'm happy I haven't gained any of that back!  I gained 40 total with Kase and I have exactly 10 to go to be back to what I was before getting pregnant.  But I'd like to lose about 15 more to be where I was before Kyla.  I'm back on track now though!

While I was working out, Daddy was entertaining the kids.  While he was tending to Kase, Kyla was goofing around by the end table and somehow fell and hit her face pretty hard.  She has a good bruise above her left eye and on her left cheek.  It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but it looked awful.  She didn't even cry long.  Tough cookie that girl!

I have to cut myself off today because I'm sure the internet is going to go out any second now so I need to hit publish.  By the way, is this week going ridiculously slow for anyone else?  Is it seriously only Wednesday?  Ugh!



  1. Love your treadmill workout! Here's one I do occasionally to keep my routine from becoming mundane -
    Day 1: Run 1 minute, walk 1 minute (repeat 10 times)
    Day 2: Run 2 minutes, walk 1 minute (repeat 10 times)
    Day 3: Run 3 minutes, walk 90 seconds (repeat 8 times)
    Day 4: Run 4 minutes, walk 90 seconds (repeat 6 times)
    Day 5: Run 5 minutes, walk 1 minute (repeat 5 times)
    Day 6: Run 6 minutes, walk 1 minute (repeat 4 times)
    Day 7: REST!
    It's been almost 9 months since I had my little man and I swear those last 10 pounds refuse to go anywhere. UGH!
    Happy Running!

  2. So glad you FINALLY got your treadmill!! Looks nice :) I love to watch TV and walk/run... makes the time def go faster!

    Poor lil Kyla- glad she's so tough!!

  3. Yay for getting the treadmill! Boo for migraines :-(

    Is that a new Gymboree shirt I see on Kyla?! :-)

  4. Hallelujah for the treadmill finally coming! I hope Kyla is feeling better...doesn't it just break your heart when they get hurt??
