I finished it!!! I was looking online at different spider cakes and how to make them for a Halloween party and found a few to take ideas from. So yes instead of purchasing the spider cake from Macey's for a mere $13 I slaved over making it by hand!! I figure I should use my skills that I learned in cake decorating class a few years back. Of course while I was getting ready to dye my frosting the colors that I wanted to use were all congealed and it would not melt in the microwave so I moved to the next option, go with the colors that were left! All in all it was a lot of fun to make and I think it turned out pretty darn good!!

Jogging With Charlie

This morning I woke up and decided I would run to work again with Charlie. I figured I was really motivated so I should just do it. Well I used to put charlie in the baby jogger when he was smaller since he couldn't run that far. Well I haven't run to work in quite a while and so I wasn't sure if I was up to packing it and Charlie into it. I pulled it out of the garage and loaded it with my work clothes, purse, Charlies things and we started off. I thought that I would let Charlie run with me until he got tired, yeah lets just say that was a interesting event. Between trying not to run Charlie over, Charlie chasing my pant legs while I was running and avoiding the various obstacles on the side walk it was a tiring trip. Although, Charlie did make it almost all of the 4.7 miles with only a short stint in the jogger. So next time I think I am eliminating the jogger all together. The best part though was watching people's faces when they would look into the jogger to see the baby but only to see a blanket or Charlie sitting in there.

Then .......Now

I was going through my pictures and saw these baby pictures of Jesse and thought it would be fun to see how he grew into the sexy beast he is today!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!

Working Out Continued.........

So bootcamp is over for our little group and now I am up to my own devices in planning my workouts. Now I did have three years of structured weight routines to follow so I am fairly familiar with putting together weight routines but I do tend to get bored with being at the gym by myself lifting. I also have a habit of getting distracted watching everyone else workout and thinking about what they are doing, their form and how much they are lifting. Yeah it causes quite a problem when I am supposed to be pushing myself!! Anyways so Sunday night I went through all my workouts and thumbed through my weight training book and put together a loose leg routine for me to do on Monday morning. Well my alarm went off and I hit snooze about 5 times and then eventually just changed the alarm to later in the morning. Needless to say I did not get to the gym on Monday and Tuesday was the same story. Soo I need to get my butt back in gear or go back to boot camp. Hmmm.....boot camp sounds better!!! Man am I lazy!!

Working Out Blah!!

This mornings workout was awful, crappy and I could've done without it!! Okay so it was just really hard and I was mad becuase I couldn't do all of it and the girl next to me the whole time was like, "oh this is soo easy, I just LOVE planks, I do them all the time" meanwhile I am over there struggling like you know what to stay up and I look over and she is not even flat but in a "V" which let me tell you does nothing to your lower back and abs!! So the whole workout I wanted to look over to her and say, "maybe if you would flatten out like the rest of us you would be struggling instead of going on and on how much you LOVE planks!" Okay so today was a grouchy day so watch out if you see me!!! Hee hee hee I have recovered don't worry!!

A New Skill

One of my long standing goals that I have for myself is to learn some new skill every year and I have had a lot of fun over the years learning new things or improving on one that I had started but didn't really keep up. I have learned to rock climb, play tennis, scuba dive, ran a marathon, knit and now I have started sewing. Celina was making all these cute sewing projects and I thought hey that would be a fun little thing to be able to do. So this weekend Celina and Lindsay came over and they taught me how to sew and I made two aprons in just a few hours.The second apron we just figured out as we went luckily I had Celina and Lindsay to guide me along the way but they turned out way better than I ever imagined!! It was a lot of fun but a bit nerve racking when I broke two needles (lets not mention that to my mother) and making sure I was stitching straight. We got the cute fabric from Ikea which is definitely a great place to shop for fabric especially thick fabric. Next is a needle holder for all my bazillion knitting needles so that they will be better contained instead of rolling all over the place!!

I have started a Boot Camp training class in Lehi that is great!! A group of us carpool up there at 4:45 in the morning and workout for an hour 5 days during the week. We have been going for two weeks so far and in our last week weigh in I lost 1/2" in my waist and 2" in my thigh!! By the end of the month I am hoping to lose 2" total in my waist and my hips!!
