Sum sum summertime... ends!

Lyric starts first grade tomorrow. Seriously? WTF. Wasn't I JUST complaining about STILL being pregnant with her? How is it possible that she's almost 7? Why am I old? I can't believe it. I'm staying home tomorrow morning to put her on the bus, and then I'll be off to work. She loves school - I hope that trend continues. She just loves being around other kids - the learning is just a small part of it to her.

She's a super bright, active kid. Tons of energy, but she doesn't use it right. If I asked her to go for a run with me, she wouldn't, but she'd run and jump on the couch for an hour. I try to keep her as active as I can, but it's hard sometimes. She's also got a lot of little quirks - just like her mom. She can be very fearful of certain things - going upstairs by herself or touching the recycling bin because she saw a bug on it once. I was the same way, but it's hard to remember how patient my parents must have been with me when I was little. Either that, or I wasn't as expressive about my fears as Lyric is - which is probably the case. I hid a lot of stuff. I didn't want to be weird. I'm glad Lyric feels she can talk to me, I just hope she always does, and that I can be a good and patient mom. Easier said than done.

Fallon is a different story.

She's a wild one. My kids are pretty opposite. Except for that "excess energy" thing. They've got that much covered.

I love that Fallon is starting to talk SO much. Her language is absolutely exploding. She burps and says "scoose me!" and climbs the slide and yells "Mommy I DID IT!" It's adorable. I wish I could keep her itty bitty forevs. It's my favorite. I heart toddlers. Especially mine. It's weird when you try to love up other people's toddlers - they tend to not appreciate it much.

As for me, I'm still doing this Paleo thing. And it's working for me when nothing else would. My body simply cannot handle gluten/grains, I think. I get incredibly bloated and feel horrible. So this is a good discovery. I've lost 10 pounds this month! 5 of which I kept gaining and then losing, but now I'm finally to a weight that I haven't seen in forever, which is nice. This morning I weighed 174.6. I'm hoping to see the 160's soon - I haven't been there since 2008.

My training has been pretty loosey goosey, but oh well EFF IT. I don't think I can do this half. I don't have time for the training. If I worked closer to home, maybe. If I was still a SAMH, deff. I'm not giving up by any means, but I don't think I can do that distance when the furthest I've run is 6.3 miles. It's in a month and a half. I do want to run another 10k and even a 5k soon. I plan to do the Turkey Trot in Butler again this year - it was my first 5k and I want to beat my time from last year! Go me! I'm also anxiously awaiting a call for a job interview - please keep your fingers crossed for me. I'm pretty miserable where I am right now. If I have to make one more editable pdf I'm going to effin scream. That is all.
