Goodbye January, Hello February

It seems like just yesterday we were getting ready to celebrate the New Year and BOOM here we are looking back at the first 31 days of the year! I read something recently and it’s stuck with me, “the moments pass so slowly, but the years fly by.” There really is so much truth to that, it’s crazy!
I didn’t hit all of my January goals, but I’m still really damn proud of what I was able to accomplish.

Here’s just a quick recap- I didn’t realize how much we’ve done!

140 miles run
Weight 187 pounds (about 5 pounds lost)
All other measurements are the same. Totally weird, but I feel good, so that’s the important thing!

Took my kids to Moody Gardens for the first time EVER!!!Headed to Moody Gardens

Ran the Houston Marathon and PR’d by nearly 30 seconds. No training and powered by XOJO

Caught up to Anthony

Vixen Capris are magic! They helped me PR

Battled Jedi Nerds with Lightsabers on the capital lawn in Austin

Celebrated my little man’s 12th birthday! Happy Birthday Boy We are stuffed

Swim season came to an end last weekend and I couldn’t be more proud. Little S singing the National Anthem

The girls also had Dessert Theater where they both performed beautifully!

I am still blown away at the speed in which January has flown by! I feel like I should have accomplished so much more, but when I really look at it, I did a lot. And I am really proud of me, and proud of my littles.

Another Nerd Fitness 4 week challenge started today, I’ve got a thread going over there if you want to give it a follow. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all my craziness.
February is sure to bring loads of MILES and smiles! I’m going after BIGFOOT again, he narrowly escaped my grasp in January and I don’t intend to let that happen again! I also need to play catch up on my studying and I’d like to say a HUGE congratulations to my hawt mama friend over at Sports Bras and Sippy Cups for passing her certification exam! She had been busting her ass and it’s paid off! Congrats beautiful!!!
OH there will be several giveaways this month- you don’t want to miss those!!!  So, stalking is appreciated and encouraged!

    Wow! You certainly had a great month!

    I lived in Austin for 17 yrs; we miss it. We’ve been freezing in NY for the past 7 (had to move for my husband’s job, but we both grew up in the northeast — no doubt why we loved Austin so much)!

    Hope you have a great february.

      I just love Austin and I’ll take any excuse I can to go!
      January was definitely a much needed GOOD month! I’m really looking forward to making 2016 the best year ever!
      Hopefully you’ll get to come back to Texas soon!
