Ella loves the BLING

I made a mistake by telling Ella that when she is older I will give her my wedding ring. Now she wants to "try it on" all the time. When I ask for it back, she says "no Mommy, I am older now".

Early morning jog...

Just a 4.5 mile run this morning with my little Ella. Was nice to have her with me.

It has been a long time since I have run with her. I feared she would slow me down. Nope, not at all. Still kept up a 10:32 min/mi pace.

2.Be a better example for Elliott.
3.Take a special family "outing" at least once a month.
1.Increase daily protein intake. (60-70g daily)
2.Drop 14 more pounds and maintain that weight.
3.Stay away from slider foods. (peanuts, popcorn, pretzels, chips, and crackers)
1.Continue running. (shoot for 500 miles this year)
2.Work out at least once a week WITH my husband.
3.Run at least 3 races.

3.Do more learning projects with Ella.
