'Tis the season

I'm a sucker for external gratification
I finally joined a gym and am back to making physical fitness a priority. Trust me, I know how close bikini season really is!

Luckily, this time around I have some pumped up kicks and a coworker who is willing to get sweaty with me at lunch or after school. We may not actually workout together once we get to the gym, but at least I have someone to ensure I get my butt there when I say I will!

I only began a couple weeks ago, but already I've upped my running to 15 minutes straight! That's pretty significant for this self-proclaimed "non-runner."

What do you do to stay in shape? How do you motivate yourself to actually "just do it"?

Playing catch up

I cannot believe how far behind I am in blogging. I was about to give up, but decided instead to try to get back on track.

Last weekend was a busy one with my birthday and Easter. [I have a birthday post waiting in the rafters.] Aunty Addie, Emil's youngest sister, came down from Buffalo to visit, much to our delight. Indio loves playing with Addie because she's willing to get down-and-dirty with him or snuggle on the couch with The Gruffalo. He's been missing her this week, often asking about her. It was awesome to watch them interact now that Indio is so much more verbal.

Easter Sunday, we headed over to Emil's aunt's place where his cousins set up an egg hunt for the kids. Indio and his cousin, Zevi, had a special hunt all to themselves, with eggs filled with toys and organic candy. [who knew there was a market for organic junk food?]
checking out the loot

Indio was beyond himself with his bag of candy! It was like Halloween all over again.
