ER Strength Training

Yesterday afternoon Brennan fell through the slats in the banister on the upper floor, down to the marble stairs 6 feet below... and landed on his head. He is miraculously fine. They took x-rays and the one 6" long, 1" high bump he had on his head is now a barely visible red mark. I don't know how we got away with this, but I am thankful.

72 - Practice

I walked the halls with him in my arms for 6 hours last night. Today he's been really cranky and wants to be held (and of course Daddy won't do) so I've been carting around a 25lb 22mos old for about twelve hours. He's also getting a cold, which doesn't help. I have 3 bushels of clean laundry waiting to be folded but any time I move I am treated to a full-out kicking and screaming, flat on the floor, snot bubbles and drool strings, toddler fit.

While this is going on Tristan is climbing and jumping all over the place, doing cartwheels, talking non-stop about nothing... but God forbid I don't listen! He also manages to tease his brother. They tease each other. They smack and fight. I am tired and sore, but I am still very motivated. Know why? Because today my toddler is in my arms, teasing his brother and being his old normal self after a fall that should have seriously injured him, or worse. He was sleeping on me in my bed last night as I cried all over his miracle baby head. Everything is just fine! :) Before all this happened I was really busy with editing photos from my last infant shoot and exercising.

Despite the fact that I don't want to be one of those annoying people blabbing on about fitness and food, I guess I'm gonna. It's either going to bore the bejeezus out of you or motivate you (it will at least explain the title).

I started this 100 day cardio, strength, nutrition, and emotional well-being challenge with a 700+ member group of Rants From MommyLand fans. I just started on Monday. It is now Friday. The challenges don't seem hard, but they are. The following body parts are killing me: thighs, calves, shins, glutes, and abs. One thing that doesn't hurt is my pride. I am having so much fun doing this. The women on this site crack me up every day and even though we don't work out together, it feels like we all do. There's a lot of support and honesty and it motivates me to keep going. I can't stop or I won't get to enjoy the laughs and love anymore!

Tomorrow is Saturday Unplugged. Noah has a game and hopefully Brennan will be feeling better so we can go to a park or something. I'd love to go on a hike or something if the weather's nice enough!
