So I am so sorry that I haven't posted in a while, well a while doesn't really sum up the 6 weeks of neglect. But, with the balance of mommyhood, sometimes things fall behind, and unfortunately this blog did just that. On a positive note, it has been a very busy but successful last 6 weeks.
First I would like to talk a little bit about my accomplishments. I have registered for 3 triathlons!!! My first one is on July 18th and I am super excited. Needless to say, I have finally grabbed hold of my life and made it a priority for me find time to workout for myself. It has been easier than I thought and its definitely great that James enjoys going for runs and Matt and James will bike with me! Even more I have found some great friends at work who are a. joining me in the last tri and b. pushing me to work out! On top of all of this success I am happy to report I have officially lost 25 pounds. Its so exciting for me, as my weight has always been a struggle, and now I have made some head way -- I still have more to go, but its a start!
On another note, we have made a lot of changes with James. First we found out that he is suffering from 5ths disease which is leading to contact dermatitis. Therefore, we have now switch to Tide Free detergent and we are still laughing that our detergent was the last "natural" switch that we have made. Maybe the smell of the blue Tide makes me nostalgic, but all in all we have seen a remarkable recovery with a simple switch in laundry detergent and of course, the prescription hydrocortozone.
