{chirp} {Chirp} {chirp}

yes, that is the sound of crickets after apparently taking a 2 month blog break! How did that happen? I guess it's called life of a working mom with 3 little men!

So what's happened the last 2 months? Well we went to and survived our trip to Disney World, Easter and celebrating His ressurection , zach started t-ball, mark is more and more little boy and less little toddler, Luke is sitting on his own and cutting teeth, I started boot camp, and every daily thing in between!

So in attempts to get back into the swing of things...here is miscellany Monday!
miscellany monday at lowercase letters

1) Susan, Allison, and I started boot camp 2 weeks ago. My friend from church runs it and she was offering a groupon so we signed up! Wow, the first week was a doozie. I could barely move, but no pain, no gain...right? I still feel like an uncoordinated goof most of time, but I know it's a good workout. It is at 5am which I was worried about but I haven't missed yet. I go straight from there to the gym in my office. I get some funny looks walking in in my gym clothes and going straight to the shower, ha!

2) I also got talked into starting a cleanse. We are going to do it the last week of April. I had been reading on several different blogs about them and when friends mentioned wanting to do one too... we decided to do it together. It's only 7 days. I should be able to do anything for 7 days, right?
3) T-ball has been a very humbling and interesting experience so far.  Zach has always been what I would call "athletic".  He walked really early, always been very coordinated with activities, out playing ball at like 1 year old.  He played soccer in the fall and was one of the best players on the teams because he's fast and coordinated.  When spring came along we asked what he would like to do and he said, "try baseball".  Now in the backyard with the wiffle balls, he was also so good that I figured he would be a natural....but I have learned that in comparison to kids on team who are practically a year older and have played before, there is a real difference.  I find myself conflicted...at times wanting to be tough and yelling like some folks and also wanting to just let him figure it out on his own and see if this is even for him.  Ahhhh!  It is definitely a battle of "all kids need a fair shot vs letting the best players play" in my head....but then I think they are only 5-6 years old...can't we just play for fun?  We will see how the season goes!

4. I am back on WW.  I gained about 45lbs during my pregnancy and lost about 20lb of it quite easily.  But ever since Christmas, I just have not been able to get the scale to move.  I would lose and then gain it back.  Good old teeter totter.  But since joining boot camp I have really been tracking my points again and have lost about 6 lbs.  I will be weighing in on Thursdays now so we will get an official weigh in then!

5. I tried my first MyFitFoods today.  They opened a location downtown so I decided to give it a try.  As I was walking over, a lady was passing out free meal coupons so my lunch was free!  yay!  I tried the Buffalo Chicken Salad and it was very tasty!

6. I love instagram....do you??  If so, come follow me!  I am doing a photo-a-day challenge this month and it is fun to follow along with the little prompts and try and be creative!

I think that is enough for today.  Hope to be back to posting more again!
