January Update!

I just completed my 3rd run this week of 1.5 miles. I know that that's probably nothin' to some of you seasoned exercisers out there, but for me....? Wow!!!!! I am so proud of myself!!! And it's getting easier too.

So.....This morning I came in to find Jake sharing a "treat" with Grant. GUM. Jake likes to climb up onto the counter and get into our "treat" closet, where we keep all of the goodies around here. For some reason Jake is really into gum, and apparently he decided to share the minty goodness with his little brother. I'm just surprised that Grant liked it so much. (Look close and you can see baby Grant's two new toothers, along with a stick of gum!!!)

He's Guilty! (gum in hand!)
Oh, the joys of having two babies!
Actually, I've been relishing it lately.
It really is quite fun.

Last night after supper the babies got to take side-by-side baths in the sink.
(Hyrum is such a good older brother!)

Last week I made a little kitchen art, some that I had seen at Holly's!
I just spraypainted the flatware and frame, covered the back in fabric, and hot-glued.
I like it a lot.
We've been working around the house, and last weekend added some color to our kitchen.
Jeron did a great job!!!!!
Other news for us: we've been working on the garden daily, and we have spinach, swiss chard, peas, and carrots going to town! And Jeron bought and planted 10 fruit trees yesterday, so it won't be long before we enjoy that too!!!!

I've wanted to do this, plus Florence is really close to our casa.

But who's in with me!!?? (i.e. I'm NOT doing this alone!)

April 30th (about 3 months away), 3.4 miles of HELL!!!! $40-$60
Sounds fun! :)

New year, new me!

Finally I figured out how to get our blog working again! Yay! So here I go again...

My new year resolution this year is to exercise for 7 hours/week (i.e. daily) and to eat healthily in order to get my chubbies OFF!!! Alisa gave me the diet she got from her nutritionist.

Alisa, Megan, Mom, and my friend Becky (and her family) are all focusing on losing weight this year. I'm so glad we're all doing it together. It makes it so much easier.... every time I want to cheat I think... "DANG IT! I don't want them to beat me!!! I don't want to be the last chubby one when all is said and done!!!"

As an additional incentive, I bet Jolyn will probably get married this next year and I want to look good because EVERYONE the Hatch's know will be there.

Plus I've been leading a pretty sad life this last bit. Nothing fits- not even my fat clothes. Being tired..... all the time. Not wanting to play with the kids, having a hard time sitting on the ground when I teach my Sunbeams each Sunday... the list goes on!

It's time for me. Baby Grant is 6 months old. He slept until 4:30 last night! Yay! The boys are getting to be better helpers. Plus, if not now, WHEN? I'm turning 30 this year, and I want it to be a great year for me.
