This and that

I'm going to be honest, I hate running on the treadmill!  I want Spring to arrive so the boys and I can head outside!  I had set a schedule for myself to run MWF on the treadmill working up to a 5k.  But I haven't made the time or put the effort in to do it.  Yesterday I could have but chose not to because my house was in desperate need of my attention.  The sun was out, it was beautiful and it gave me energy.  So during Ryan's naptime I spend the whole 2.5 hours cleaning my house.  It's amazing how much dirt, food, grimy finger prints you can see when the sun shines!  By the end of the day I burned 2850 calories.  I burned 475 just taking Ryan to the laundromat (our washer is broken-repair man is on his way) and doing 3 large loads of laundry then going to the fabric store before picking up Zack from school.  Then I burned roughly 418 calories cleaning the house during Ryan's nap. 

I found two races that I am thinking of signing up for.  The first is a St. Patty's Five.  It's a 5 mile course near a local community college.  I've never done it before but my friend Lyndsey might do it with me.  The other one was in April but I just realized that it's the weekend before Race for the Cure.  I'm not sure that I want to have two back to back.  It was to raise money for cancer but that's also what Race for the Cure is doing so I think I'll just stick to that one.  So I'm still on the search for more, ideally I'd like to do one a month.

I have a haircut in a few hours.  I'm going shorter and a bit nervous.  I've kind of hid behind my long hair because I think it makes me look thinner.  I'm afraid if I cut it then I'll look like beetlejuice (small head with big body) and heavier.  But I'm ready for a change now.  My hair dresser is great and if I don't like it then it's just hair and it will grow back, right?!  Wish me luck!
