Crazy long day

November 15th, 2010 at 02:21 am

Today was a long one. Hubby had to work late, so I had to get up with the kids this morning at 6:30. Then, I had personal training at 11. It was rough ! It was my final fitness assessment for the 6-week weight loss program I'm in, although final weigh in is next Saturday.

In five weeks, I've lost 8 pounds and about 10 inches. Not too shabby. I also have gone from a 10 minute mile to 8 min and 55 seconds. feels good. Hope I can lose 1 or 2 more pounds before final weigh in.

My son's first birthday party was today as well. It was one of those rare times in the universe when the stars align and every single person you invite actually shows up. The house was packed to the gills with people and kids. All the babies had fun.

I spent most of the afternoon prepping, making 50 cupcakes into monsters.

Exhibit A:

The house is finally cleaned up, the babies are in bed, and I am about to take a bath and hit the pillows myself.

    Wow! You really worked hard! You must be a lot like my daughter-in-law. We just celebrated my grandson's 4th birthday, and she put a lot into it -- homemade treats, plus she sewed a birthday banner and hat -- really cute stuff! It was a great party, probably much like yours. Enjoy your well-deserved rest!

    First time here!

    I really like the name of your blog, very specific and to the point! I'll have to read through your archive to see if you bought the tiki bar yet or not!

    Hope the kids enjoyed the cupcakes, the look great!!!
