'I be up in the gym just workin' on my fitness'

A break in the Buggy action to do a little update on the Buggy Mama and some fitness - and for some reason while writing this last line I thought of the Fergie song with the line I used for the title of this one, yes it's been a long week and I'm slightly delirious! 

I've been pushing myself a bit harder lately both in CrossFit and in running.  I have recently set 2 goals for myself - although neither have a deadline & both are running related - I only wish to complete them in a reasonable amount of time.

* Goal 1 = Run a 5K (3.2 miles) in under 30 minutes 
My current best time is 30:31 - oh so close!

* Goal 2 = Run the entire distance of Salem Lake - a total of 6.94 miles.
I've completed 5.02 miles of the lake so far

And I really pushed myself yesterday during the W.O.D.  I used a weight that I hadn't ever tried before for the exercises - and lemme tell ya do I feel it today! 
Basically I'm tired of staying stagnant in workouts.  Time to push myself to the next level!!

Now comes in this crazy thing I decided to do with my friend Renee.  The Pilot Mountain Challenge 5K on December 15.  So, I've done lots of 5K's before and the thought of running up beautiful Pilot Mountain intrigues me.  But then Renee sent me a link to a guy's bog who did the P.M. 5K last year - and documented it with words and pictures.  Gorgeous pictures - but now I'm a little scared!  What did I get myself into?? My plan was always to enjoy the run, not push myself to much to adhere to a strict 5K time and to have fun.  Reading that blog reiterates that - so adding to that plan is to take some really pretty pictures while I enjoy this crazy run! 

Here's to running my butt off!!
Happy Weekend All!!!

Buggy Bonanza!

Buggy updates - mostly in pictures - because she's just so darn cute. 

We've entered the 'what in the heck was i thinking saying terrible 2's when the 3's are so much worse' phase of the Buggy's life.  She's been 3 for 14 days and they have been a rough 14 days.  I mean it's almost like a switch has been flipped.  Or maybe it's because her tantrums are more grownup like now.  I'm not sure but I know I've had a lot more headaches and 'pull my hair out' moments!  

{at her 3 year old check up - she's 3'2" tall - a mini person!}

{being gangster like in leggings - because that is ALL she will wear*}
*more to come on the leggings issue

{being crazy - this usually happens right around 8pm each night, yes in other words, bedtime, which never happens when it's supposed to}

{Buggy faces - there are oh so many and i love each and every one!}

{hanging the Halloween clingers on her bathroom mirror.  she only had to take them down and re place them about 8 times.  she's def inherited my OCD}

*So now, let's take a minute and discuss my current Buggy cross to bear - LEGGINGS!  She has become obsessed.  She won't wear anything else.  Every morning it MUST be leggings.  Ok I guess i get it.  They are comfortable.  But she doesn't have enough shirts/dresses that she can wear with leggings all the time.  One of the pictures is from this morning and she is wearing hot pink skinny jeans.  So we got those one - BUT - i think it's only because they are size 2T and since are a little snug fit like leggings!  So i told her i was going to return all the pants she got for her birthday and buy things to wear over leggings.  She said ok.  Go figure!

And a quick potty training update - Bug had been wearing pull ups at night.  Then earlier this week we ran out of pull ups (whoops) so we had to let her sleep in panties.  Which ended in pee in 2 of the 3 beds in the house!  Out of the 4 nights she hasn't worn a pull up only 1 was completely dry.  So she's getting there - she's just such a hard sleeper that she doesn't wake up when she has to go!  Here's to hoping she gets the overnight part of the training down as quick as she did the rest of it!

Happy Friday!

A Buggy 3rd Birthday

My little Bug turned 3!!  (and I must say it's been terrible three's since she has, much worse than the two's - but I'll save that for a later post!)  We had a great birthday celebration with pizza, an icecream sundae bar, cupcakes and lots of fun.  Buggy made out and keeps talking about her awesome party.  Thank you all who came over to have fun with the little Buggy!  Here's a few pictures (out of TONS) to recap the day's events.
