FTF "Quest for Greatness"

I didn't exactly conquer my goal on this quest. I did however, manage to stay on the elliptical for 50 minutes yesterday in my good faith effort to try to last as long as I could at least once!!!! I was able to get four workouts in this week!

Here is what I did:

Saturday: OFF
Sunday: OFF
Monday: 45 min. Pilates workout
Tuesday: 33 min. on elliptical (16 mins. with 5 lb dumbbells)
Wednesday: OFF
Thursday: 50 min. on elliptical, one mile walk.
Friday: 45 min. Pilates workout!!!

I would like to thank Christie for leading us in another great challenge that motivates me daily to live a more healthy life style.

FTF "Quest for Greatness"

I feel like I have been living in a twilight zone!!! I can't believe it is already FRIDAY.... it seems like last Friday was yesterday. Anyway, I was able to get five work outs in this week. I have not lost any weight but I haven't gained any either. At this point, I am happy with maintaining.

Here is what I did this week:

Sunday: 30 min Pilates work out.
Monday: OFF

Tuesday: 33 minutes on the elliptical with 5lb. dumbbells (16 mins. with those!!!)

Wednesday: 33 minutes on the elliptical with 5lb. dumbbells (16 mins. with those!!!)

Thursday: 50 min Pilates work out.

Friday: 50 min Pilates work out.

And of course I have to add a baby update:

As you may have watch (video--from my last post), I took our little man to my girlfriend's house on Monday for a play date with Madilyn ( 15 months old) and AJ (8 months old). We had such a nice time. Our little man loved playing with his friends. He told me on the ride home that he is looking forward to seeing them again and can't wait until he gets to play with all of Madilyn's toys. He absolutely loved the rocking motorcycle, which by the way right after we left we stopped at Wall Mart and bought the rock-in-go pony!!!! And lets just say he's been a rockin ever since!!!! I have a feeling these three little adorable people will be good friends, especially when the weather breaks and we can take weekly trips to the zoo!

No crawling yet but we are making progress. He has also been trying more new foods like mac-n-cheese, little pieces of chicken (he kind of gagged with this one, is that normal?), and bitter biscuits that he bites big chunks out of because he has eight teeth. He is developing the best personality and is almost always happy as a little clam. He is so loved by so many people and I know he loves all of us too!!!!

Here is a couple of pictures with his friends. I thought we was going to get into a battle over the talking ELMO doll. I will definitely be getting him that one for his birthday!!!!
Um.... I am playing with your ELMO thank you very much!
And, NO you can not have your pillow either.
Okay, you can have your pillow but ELMO is mine!!!
Your not going to get your motorcycle back either lol!!!Thanks for having me over. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with all of your toys!!!!

FTF "Quest for Greatness"

I did not report out last week because FACE BOOK has taken but I am back! I worked out five days last week and three days this week. I have been sticking to the Pilates/Elliptical with weights workouts and they are paying off. I have not lost any weight but I have lost inches.
Another reason I have not posted in a while is due to the change in my sons sleeping habits. For most of his short life he has been on a schedule like clockwork, going to bed around 6:30ish and waking up at 5:00ish, however this last week he has decided to protest sleep. It's not a drastic change but not the normal if you know what I mean. I am happy that he is staying up later because mommy and daddy get to spend more time with him and if that means I don't get to talk to all of you (no offense), I'll take it!
Our son is well on his way to becoming his own little person! He can now get up into a crawling position on his own (when he feels like it) and rocks back and forth. He has been trying new foods such as: noodles, cottage cheese (loves it), cheese, cooked peas (only one, didn't like it so much), and cheerios. Cheerios are by far his favorite. Last Sunday was my husband's turn to get up in the morning so that I could sleep in and when I finally woke up to join my two love bugs, I found daddy feeding our baby lots and lots of Cheerios. Twenty-five to be exact and they weren't even soften up with milk!!!! Our little one would eat Cheerios until he turn into one if we let him!!! He also loves going to the grocery store with us now that he can ride big boy style in the cart and he especially loves when daddy races up and down the isles (while mommy is secretly having a heart attack) and squeals out with joy!

Happy Valentines Day: We hope your weekend is filled with love and joy!!!

Out to Lunch

Today was the first day since our son has been born that we went to lunch as a family!!! And then we even went to the mall together afterwards. We have been out as a whole to do our usual grocery shopping and to visit family but we have never been out just the three of us for enjoyment. Our son is such a good baby and so easy to take anywhere! We had a wonderful day and I think after venturing out and seeing how much our son loves to be around people and see new things, family outings will happen more often.

Here are my boys at lunch!!!
