Hello Hello

I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. The days are just going by way too fast and I can't believe I'm already talking to Amelia about her Halloween costume, but it will be here before I know it. Work has been keeping me extremely busy, we've sent engines all over the state to fight fires and our own district has been busier than the past few seasons for sure. In my free time I've been trying to catch up on sleep and family time. Amelia is definitely a little neglected by her Mama lately, unfortunately. Our weekends have been great lately and I'm trying to get as much Mama Amelia time in as possible. Here are some pictures of what we've been up to...

Laughing and dancing around

 Making silly faces

Amelia's first time ever getting a pedicure

 Growing a garden

 Riding ponies

 Enjoying the county fair

 Enjoying the sun

Patiently waiting to go on a new adventure

 Climbing on daddy

Riding on the neighborhood trolley

After the weekend I am generally more tired than I am all week. I think I try to cram too much into my weekends to make up for my long weeks away from home. Mark is working at his new clinic and has had so many new patients already. I'm really excited and proud of him. Now if only I could afford to quit my job and stay home with Amelia, life would be good. 

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned my poor eating habits during times of stress... well I am definitely living this right now. My diet sucks and my exercising has been even worse. I MUST do something to change this rut I am in. I don't get off of work tomorrow until 7:00pm so I think I will just take a change of clothes to work with me and have Mark meet me at the gym to get Amelia so I can work out. I'm going to set myself a couple of goals until October and then re-evaluate where I'm at. 

Goal 1: track EVERYTHING! I use Sparkpeople.com and was doing very well with my weight loss when I was diligent about tracking what I eat

Goal 2: exercise at least 2 nights per week. I know it should be more but considering it is currently at , ZERO, 2 nights is doable. I will increase it once fire season is over.
