I needed my girls today...

crappy crappy work out week this week. Tonight I just walked.. I just didn't have it in me to run tonight... no real reason.. just couldn't get in my grove. Blah! I'm having a very unmotivated week... I feel like the wind has been taken out of my sail this week. Hopefully this will get it ouf of my system and I'll be all set for race day in two and a half weeks..

I'm not real sure what's going on with me. Maybe my hormones are returning to their normal wacked out selves and that's why my mood sucks so bad.

The kids are still working on their top FOUR teeth. Lily's two middle teeth are through and the two side ones are working their way through. Jason has one upper middle and the others are coming. They both are being very clingy lately (and pretty whiny) and are giving out lots of hugs and kisses (and cries).

Mom and dad are heading home to Texas on Sept 2nd... EEK! I think I'm in for a rude awakening when mom isn't coming over every day anymore. I'm quickly searching out new play groups for this winter.

Here are some cute videos from today. One of Jason doing some of his signs and another of Lily doing her new move in her high chair. Enjoy.

    "they" always say that in the end you get the most out of those work outs. The ones that suck. Training for a tri alone is so much work...everyone burns out a bit towards the end...but training for a tri with twins....i'm still trying to figure out how to work out once or twice a week and i only have one!! Remember how far you've come in such a short amount of time...anyway...we were always coached that it's good to walk some of the can just chalk today up as "walk training".

  2. Ha.. or my 'me time' training. :) I've really enjoyed the training, but I think I'll be happy to have a break from training and just being for a while. Running and riding (most likely not swimming) b/c I want to not b/c I 'have' to. ha ha Let's just hope I don't turn into a big fat slob. My luck the kids will wean at the same time... blah.

  3. Good luck with the training Laura- only 2 1/2 more weeks!! I am so impressed with you and all that you are doing and have accomplished. You should be so proud of yourself! About the kiddies-- LOVE the signs! Isn't that the most amazing thing? Children really can communicate with us before their verbal ability develops if we give them the tools. So cool! I'm glad you have given them the tools and they have just gone with it. So neat!! And I think Lily's chair moving thing is pretty smart : ) It's the little things that make you smile!

  4. Don't worry about the 'blah' workouts. They always sneak in there for no reason whatsoever. Just accept it and move on. I know what you feel like though. I've been there many times before. You are doing awesome though! I can't believe it is only two and a half weeks away!

    Lily's chair trick made me laugh out loud. What a smart little girl. Just wait until Jason cathces on. It will be like bumper cars in your dining room!

  5. I'll write more soon, but I wanted to tell you to hang in there! You've accomplished so much already. I'm amazed. Your spirit will soon return. And . . . I want to work out a date to come visit this fall . . . maybe with my parents (they'd get a hotel room - no worries :)).

  6. Thanks ladies.. yes yes yes come visit!!!!

    Jennie.. I'll be sure to video the bumper cars in my dining room for your amusement! ha ha... Laugh now.. it will be your turn soon. ha :)

  7. What great videos! The signing is coming along nicely, and oh my gosh! Your daughter can really move that chair! My son is teething kinda slow too. Each new tooth brings lots of tears and clingy-ness. He has 6 now, and I hear lots of babies his age are already getting their molars! Heavens, he is sooo far from that it seems.
