He said remember mom you said I could be Mario remember mom remeber. He is only 4. I remember we were at the store a week ago and he asked for super Mario costume. and i said we will see. He wanted it so bad. So 30 minutes till they start handing out candy. We go to Kmart. They have all costumes 50% whoohoo I am dancing on the inside. We go look . They are all out of Mario. I pick up a pizza costume. Nope he does not want that. So off to wal-mart. All costumes are full price. They have a Super Mario for $20. We get it, my son is so happy.

It has been so cold and windy here I have not gotten to run for two days. I was feeling bad about that and restless, so i went to our on demand movies to do a exercise video. I saw a Jillian Micheals workout video and did that. It was 20 minutes it was intense but really fun. I was not tired so i was looking for another short workout. I then did bootylouis ( that is one word i do not know how to spell) it was only 10 minutes. That was fun i thought i could squeeze in one more. I chose long lean legs, it was only 10 minutes. I felt better and thought , I could do this daily in the winter.
The next morning getting out of bed . OMG i was so sore , going down the stairs ouch ouch . The whole day I was so sore everywhere! Every time I sat down. My legs hurt. I thought since i run /walk 3 miles a day I could do this.  I kept thinking, what was I thinking three workouts back to back. So today I am not as sore anymore. I am going to do one work out video or at least have some time between them.
After my csn giveaway I realized I did not have any pictures on my blog, my blog was naked! So here is me and my little man yesterday

Just jogging along

When I started my life style change in Jan. I started by walking 1 mile.Everyday no mater how cold or snowy I walked a mile for a month I was so proud of my self. The next month I stared walking two miles. In the spring I walked to the park and back that was 3 mile everyday. In May I started walk/jogging the three miles. When I would go out my 15year old would watch my 4 year old.When school started I had to change things around I now do three one mile jogs every other day and mon. wed. and fri when i walk/stroller my son to preschool it is 5.2 miles for me.  Today I ran one mile with out stopping. I could not believe i could do that.  I cant wait to try it again tomorrow.

I have been reading a lot of running blogs. they are so interesting and i have learned a lot. I am just impressed wit how far some of these women run daily. I have decided i am going to enter my first 5k in the spring or summer.

My Busy Fun Filled Day

Yesterday was one of those busy days where everything is  back to back and you don't sit down for hours. My preschooler had his very first field trip I took him ther , quickly went home to do dishes and clean up picked him up two hours later. He loved it. They visited caves and saw a snake. Went home to make brownies for the first girl scout meeting of the year.Parents need to attend. The brownies did not turn out Agh i put in one egg not two. Make another batch.My higher schooler who takes the city  bus home was  a hour late we  went out looking for him. We live 2 miles form school. Found him a mile from home. He had to finish a project. We dropped him off at home, then went to the girl scout meeting at the park. We ate hot dogs and hamburgers yay I didn't have to cook. They had some delicious pasta which,  I ate too much of. Two hours later the meeting is over, on the way home had to stop at the store for cereal and milk. We get home at  7:30 pm, now  i can sit down. That was my day fun but filled. I didn't have time to get any exercise in, so i will try to make up for that today.Now I am going to enter some blog giveaways and try to win some Christmas presents for the kids. cross fingers. Tomorrow continue desperately  looking for a job.

Hi There

 I have started reading blogs lately and entering blog giveaways. SO I thought I would tell about myself in case you were wondering who was reading your blog. lol
Hi My Name is Jessi. I am a mom of three. A Teen, Tween and a Toddler so I have my hands full.I love them . They make my life happy and never boring.  I have a  hubby of 16 years. A cat that is wonderful litter trained and can take care of herself. YAY!We have a big dog that gets in the trash and throws up and poops everywhere and gets the toddlers food off the table sigh. (today is not a good dog day) most of the time she is a good dog. In my free time when I am not cleaning the house , cooking or caring for someone i love to jog. I love it. It re-energizes me ,calms me , brings me to my happy place so i can look at bills and clean up after dog. In Jan I started a lifestyle changes to lose weight I have lost 40 pounds. I still have some to go but I am very happy with what I lost. That is a little bit about me.
