TOO Early...

Hayden woke up at 4:40am today.... WAY too early. I tried all my tricks to get her to go back to bed, but she wasn't having it. Luckily I went to bed early last night, well actually I fell asleep on the couch watching Super Nanny. I can't wait for nap time!! =)

Lukasz is snowboarding today, he's so excited. He bought a new board and bindings so he can't wait to break them in! My mom is coming out to watch Hayden while I work tonight, and my friend Jenn and her daughter Riley are planning on coming over for a visit as well. Although I have to work tonight, I am really looking forward to a relaxing weekend. As much as we need this rain, I wish it was nice and sunny so we could go play at the park. I don't think I could EVER live somewhere that got snow during the winter... I couldn't stand to be couped up in the house with Hayden ALL day. We enjoy being outside WAY too much. Rain Rain go away....

I am SO excited to be doing the powerstroll class again! It is SUCH a great workout and so fun to chat with the moms! It's basically an exercise class lead by a fabulous woman who leads us all over Central Park in San Mateo. We run, skip, do push ups, leg lifts, climb the bleachers... basically she uses every inch of the park to create a fun yet effective workout! I was doing this last spring and summer, but then I got too busy with work, and Hayden's nap time fell right at powerstroll time. I joined again today, and I feel GREAT! I also went out to coffee with two moms after class and then we let the little ones play at the park for awhile. I once again feel MOTIVATED! I totally believe that if you have fun while you exercise it doesn't seem like such a chore! Wish me luck on my weight loss! I want to look hot for my wedding in mexico!

This will be me in a few months....

MY nose!!!

I hate feeling this way! I am not sure if I have a cold or just major bad allergies! It feels more like allergies, which I would actually prefer a cold since I have yet to find an allergy medication that works for me! My nose itches so bad, I sneeze a million times every minute and I am all clogged too! UGH!
On a positive note, Hayden slept in her crib last night from 7pm-5am without waking up!! Good girl! Then at 5am we let her cry her self back to sleep and she woke up again at 6am, then we brought her in bed with us to snuggle and we all fell asleep again until 7am! I am so proud of Hayden for not only falling asleep at night on her own, but for staying asleep all night! It was such a LONG road to get to this point.... but YAY we did it! I love her and all but I really hate sharing our bed! It's already bad enough that Lukasz hogs the bed!!!
I have a long week of work ahead of me... wish Hayden and I good luck! We aren't use to working this much so it will be interesting!
By the way.... I saw the video of the man who got shot by BART police, and it was pretty disturbing to see. I should have listened to the news anchors warning and to look away! From seeing the video it looked like there was no reason for them to shoot him, I feel very upset for his family. He had a 4 year old daughter. There better have been one hell of a reason to shoot him... if not.... I hope the officer gets what he deserves!
On a positive note... so far I love 2009!!

Welcome 2009!

I am SO excited for 2009!! I am planning on making it the BEST year of my life to date! Lukasz and I started it off right by spending two hours at the gym. Sounds like a lot but we did an hour of weights and an hour of cardio. I feel so ready to make this healthy change in my life not to mention I want to look HOT in my wedding dress come September. When we got home we started some serious cleaning in our house. I am so annoyed with this mold problem we have!! Mold is NASTY and so hard to get rid of... if you can ever get it to go away!! Anyways... although we didn't start off 2009 with Hayden here with us.... she was in our thoughts! I am sure she is having a blast with grandma and grandpa! I hope that each and everyone of you make 2009 everything you want it to be!! XOXO
