But never fear I have still been tracking my stuff just couldn't be as active. See my company " transitioned" to a different company. We sell the same stuff just under a different company now. Wasn't sure if this company would be as lax as the others about personal business on the computer so I've been kinda waiting it out to see. Seems as though they don't monitor that closely and so here I am! Real big thanks to MOMTOMONKEYS2 for calling me out on my lack of appearance :)
Lots of things happening, obviously. Been rough with the transition. Job descriptions changed. Some people are happy some are down right pissed off. I work in the front office so I basically feel like everyone takes their frustrations out on me. Not really but I hear it all. So there's that.
I signed up for my 3 Spartan races next year. I've got my Spartan Super in Vegas on April 18. Spartan Beast on May 9th and the Spartan Sprint on May 10th. Excited but nervous. There is a bunch of us girls doing it together. We don't care about times, just crossing that finish line and earning that Trifecta.
Still doing the 3 day weight training. Loving it. I feel so much more accomplished since I started the program. To actually see your weight going up and up is very satisfying. Hopefully that will help with the rope climb in the Spartans lol.
I'm actually going to hit my fitness goal this year. Last year I missed it by 1,500 points and so I tacked those on to this years goal to make my goal 13,500. I did the math and if I just hit my regular scheduled gym days I will hit that numbers and surpass it by some.
I also happen to know I'm getting a Fitbit for Christmas. We won't say how I know, just that I'm impatient and when I see a good deal I want to take advantage of said deal and then people have to tell me that I can't purchase it because I'm ruining Christmas lol. I'm excited to get it though. Wanted one for quite awhile just couldn't decide what kind. There are so many activity trackers out there it can be overwhelming. Now I'm just counting down until Christmas so I can get it set up! For those that have it.... tricks, tips, good, bad???
I know I'm missing a ton of stuff and I'll try to update more often since now I'm sure I'm in the clear. Try to look back on some of all your blogs too. I'm so behind.

So I was on vacation last week. I really only took it off so I could make sure little ones first day of Kindergarten went off without a hitch. But boy was is nice to have a week off with nothing planned, or scheduled. Honestly, besides still getting up at 5:30 to meet the girls at 6 at the gym, I did nothing. I read a little, watched some Law and Order, read some more, napped, than watched a little more Law and Order until it was time to go pick up the kiddo. I feel refreshed, but I may have gotten too use to the napping lol.
My little one had a very big week. Besides starting Kindergarten, she also start soccer this week. Here are a few picks of her week...
Everynight she was exhausted. Which is a nice change from bouncing off the walls.
Myself I started a new book/weight lifting venture
For those of you that are into weight lifting I recommend this book. I haven't read the whole things yet, but a fitness buddy of mine did and she has our weight lifting schedule mapped out for the next 6 months.
I also did a softball tournement this weekend. Haven't played for almost a year so it was kind of exciting but I was also kind of glad we were out after 3 games. But I did get some pretty good running in while out there.
To end I want to just share a funny little pic of our pooch Miss Sally May. While I was home lounging, her and I took many of naps together. One morning I was bringing her in from outside and told her to go sit on the couch. This is what I walked back into....

So our little girl turned 5 last Tuesday, we had her party Saturday. She, of course, wanted a FROZEN themed party. We normally have a pool party and that takes away any games or entertaining I have to do lol. This year it poured ALL. DAY. LONG. I'm not even exaggerating, it rained for like 36 hours straight. Needless to say, Friday night I had to Pinterest and Google party games for kids. I found a few quick and easy ones and I though if all else failed I would just out Frozen in and let the kids sing and dance. Here are a few photos.
My sister makes Lorelei a costume every year ( she is a costume designer in Chicago). This year of course was an Elsa dress.
Day of the party, waiting for guests to arrive
Some of the decorations
And two of the games we played, a Frozen scavenger hunt and a Sven Ring Toss.
Needless to say, the Hubs and I were exhausted on Sunday and we literally did nothing. He played videos games and I shamelessly watched an NCIS marathon all day. I almost felt guilty.... until I didn't.
