i saw myself naked recently

you should try stealing a glance next time you're about to get in the shower... there's no escaping that truth in all it's glory...

so i went for the first run i've been on in about five months this morning...

"but stephanie, today marks the third month of your pregnancy... you're only 14 weeks pregnant... what about the other two months of slothful inactivity??"

my answer: laziness and also five months ago is about when i took over all the supervisions... so stress and exhaustion in general. (all lame excuses really, but there they are)

i did pretty good. i didnt jog the whole length, but we did our old route and made it all the way without dying. the jogging stroller has seen better days though. time for t-rob to take over his manly responsibilities and fix it up for me: flat tires, hood broken on one side, sludgy mud on random areas, and generally nasty from non-use.

oh yeah, and if you're the thief who stole my iPod shuffle, kindly replace it. it is awkward to run with a regular iPod whilst pushing a chunky toddler in an awkward jogging stroller... i felt like i was trying to pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time for the duration of the jog. plus, the big iPod only has thomas music on it, which i normally like, but my shuffle had some really embarrassing songs on it that got my energy up every time. i need it. i wont judge you, just put it back where you found it... in my car i guess. oh, the iPod thief is an illiterate scumbag who cant read this pardon i am so graciously extending his or her way? oh well. someone let him/her know. thanks.

hooray for the second trimester! my energy really is beginning to restore itself and it's time to act! we dont want to see this lovable beast again do we? (yes, this picture is from last pregnancy) i know better this second time around... it's fun to eat a mcflurry or two everyday, but not actually good for your body or baby. i'm not kidding myself this time. :)

For a second I saw your pic and thought, WOW she got big fast.

I give you all the energy I have for exercise. Its not much though. I can't even put on my running shoes.
I give you major credit!

Imagine...
You sit down at your computer, ready to indulge in a piece of delicious home made chocolate cake and blog reading. You click on your dear friend Stephanie's blog and take another big bite of cake. As you read, you start to laugh. You are familiar with "the beast." You pause. You take another bite of cake and think, "oh well."

Thanks for the laugh!

i caught a glimpse of myself this morning on my way into the shower. at first i cringed because i know that i have gotten bigger (mostly by trying to shop for pants :( --sad face), but i was actually pleasantly surprised.

so for dinner i had a bacon cheeseburger and a milkshake. i will be running tomorrow...

dear stpeh,
just wanted to let you know that i really like reading your blog. like, i really like it. your entertaining and a fun read. i think i have a crush on you- in a strictly platonic cool mom way. so thanks, and keep the posts coming.

and not that i have seen you naked, but i have seen you in a cute black retro-ish bathing suit in the last 12 hours and i think you look great.

and i like that i am on the cool list. it's my first time, and i like it.

oh, and there is an elf in velzy's night before christmas book that looks exactly like thomas, it might get featured on my blog when i hook this laptop up to a scanner someday soon.
