[P.S. is a section of the blog where I write un-edited for 5 minutes flat about whatever is on my mind. Enjoy. Or don't. Either way, here goes nothing. Or something.]

I should really use my iPhone stopwatch more. Come to think of it the last time I used my stop watch on my phone was probably when I was running intervals. That was fun. That was nice. Running was cool. It made me feel really strong and really powerful. I felt accomplished. I almost made it through Couch to 5K. Almost. I may or may not try that again. The running was actually getting easy, but my knees weren't so much enjoying it. Maybe after I lose some more weight it won't be so bad? I think I'm going to focus mainly on cutting back the calories and less on the cardio for now. Although, I do want to add in some P90X, I know strength training is good for fat burning. Working out at home will be nice. The gym is nice, but it's childcare center has more germs than the church's nursery. Ugh, if only it didn't. Actually, if only both didn't. Love those places, hate the germs.

New thought. 

Blogging. Again, in researching, studying, and listening about it all, I'm inspired and discouraged. Inspired to learn more, try more, practice more. "Get out there and do my thing", but then I look around at all the amazing blogs and sites and think...what's mine?" I don't suppose the point of anything we do in life is to necessary "make it to the top of the list", or "be the best". Isn't that what we teach our kids? Maybe I should remind myself. Being creative means being creative. It doesn't mean you have the be the-most-creative-one-out-there. I do so enjoy writing though. I have thirty seconds. What do I want to say? 15 seconds. 

I hope I can stop looking around, and just keep looking up.

    I think the only thing that makes a blog "perfect" is transparency and reality. Moms (women) don't want to read about mom's with the perfect house, the perfect kids and the perfect schedules. We want to relate to people who are like us - drastically imperfect but striving to be the best we can be. So what if the blog doesn't make it to the top of lists, or have all the gizmo's and gadgets? You have authenticity and that is better than any "extra" you can read about, learn about or try to copy. Be yourself...we'll be here :)...but do it for you, not for us!

  2. I love your blog! :) I am the exact opposite, I would rather exercise than cut calories! LOL! I love food way to much! I have to remind myself that I am the only me and I don't need to be like anyone else. My blog and my photography is my aspect on life. It should be different than others. Not better or worse, just different. :) You might be amazed at how many people you inspire. :)

  3. Thanks y'all! You're right! You're right. ;)
