when life gives you lemons make OJ!!!

No really how many times are you given a task or maybe a challenge in life and it seems like every happeneds and you are not able to complete it in the way you want to? Well latly in my life it seems this to be the case. I have noticed a trend that everytime I am doing good or things are good in my life something happeneds to knock me back down to where I was. Now I know that these things happen to us all which is why I wonder How many of us get back up? I know that I have to always remind myself Amanda it could be worse there are many other people who have it bad compared to you. Now this does not always work and sometimes I just want to have a pitty party, but I will say that by making my lemons into something even if its not what I thought I wanted it to be I am able to get through my day a little better. I know that I am not perfect and have a long ways to become it, but its nice when you can look and see the real you the one others see. I look at my son a lot and notice that he takes after many of my traits, he is over dramaic which I am, he fights sleep, again me, and more then anything he cries when he doesn;t get his way. It makes me laugh to see a mini me. He looks like me and now he is acting like me. Now not all of my traits are bad he loves veggies and will eat them over meat. He loves to give hugs and comfort people who are crying. He is a perfect example of what I should be like. He plays outside everyday runs, jump, bikes, then he gets  a wholesome lunch takes a two hour nap and is ready to play again. I have been thinking if I was to only do what he does I would be much more healthier so I have tried it. I got up ate a good breakfast, went outside and played with him. Ate lunch took a nap and played some more. I never felt so good yet so tried in my life! Man no wonder he is in good shape, but it made me think, I need to be more active. Its funny I thought I was going well until I noticed how hard it was for me to walk the whole store of walmart shopping. I cringed thinking about pushing logan in a stroller in a mall! So what can I do to improve, well first off I am going to make sure I am walking again EVERYDAY! I am making my mom go with me and useing her diabetes as an exsuce to make her come with me. I am going to pass on foods I don;t need, even though I am pregnant it is no reason to pig out. I am going to make sure I am drinking my water. And more then anything I am going to take those lemons those task that just seem to never go away and make something of them! I know that if I do this I will have the best five more weeks before this little girl comes. I know that I will be in a place to take care of her and my son. Till next time know I am here and love you all, Amanda

Awesome! I love how you lived a day in your son's shoes. Walking everyday is a wonderful goal. I know you can do it. Just make sure you stay plenty hydrated! :) I hope you have an inspiring weekend!

living a day in your son's shoes is a wonderful idea... and your post was just lovely. I've recently started running 5/7 days a week and have noticed such a change in my overall energy level. My husband has diabetes and I keep trying to get him to walk with me so I'm proud that you're getting your mom on board! That's AWESOME! Keep up the awesome work!

I love it. Be more like your son and drag your mom along for the ride! Sounds like a good strategy for your whole family. Be well sweetie, you are almost done cooking this baby.

I love it that not only did you think about what your son was doing but then you tried it for yourself! That is so cool. Reminds me of this video that Pete Cohen recently posted of this guy doing something called Parkour. It's a type of exercise that's basically just having fun. Check it out!!

Good for you! I love the way you are working out with your mother. That's awesome! A walk is a walk and it's all movement. Good luck this week.

I love this post because I have noticed more and more than my little boy is becoming a mini me as well! He has this spark about him that's just wonderful and I can see my personality in him but it's still so pure and hasn't been tainted by the world and its views. Amazing what we can learn from our babes :)
