Not much here...
I guess there's not a whole lot you can say, except "Cute kids," again to the tons of pics I put on yesterday. I'm hoping that's why no one, except super-cool Julia, commented. My fear is that I've run everyone off with my rant about God the other day. Please don't think that will be the norm here, just what was in my head at the time...

Anyway, Julia and I have decided that we are going to stick together to diet and exercise. We are going to check on each other daily, and make sure to yell at each other if we're messing up. As well, we'll do our best to help motivate and listen to each other's gripes about the whole dieting process. I'm even charting what I eat each day so I can keep up with it, and notice anything like patterns or something. I just feel like being scientific, ya know! I have to say, though, I started today, and just knowing that I was going to have to be honest about it, then send it to Julia and let her see what I was eating kept me in line. Of course, I still had dessert, and more than I probably should have. However, it didn't stray from the diet, so I'm okay. Oh, and if I didn't mention it, I'm eating b/t 1200 and 1500 calories per day, and I'm going to do Tae-Bo at least three times a week. I did it before I got prego w/TJ, and it was fun and I did pretty well on it. It was right about when I started really noticing a difference that I got pregnant, and dropped it like a bad habit! I have it scheduled to do at 7 w/TJ, but I didn't feel like it today, and I had vowed I'd just do it tomorrow. However, when I wrote to Julia to tell her about my day, I felt guilty saying I hadn't done it b/c I was lazy, and figured she'd get on me about it, so at 11:30 I went and did it! If we keep this up, it could really work! Of course, she really will have to give me the disappointed look when I mess up, so I'll stay on the straight and narrow! I tried the same thing w/Trey, but it's just not the same.

Other than that, nothing exciting. I think I'm gonna try to think of my past, and somehow describe the memories I have in a funny way. I want to be more like the Karla's over there. Their stories are funny and entertaining. I know I've had quite an interesting life, I just have to figure out how to make other people think so, too. Too bad I'm more of an essay writer-type person, and not very funny. I'm actually pretty funny at times in real life, or so I'd like to think, but I can't seem to bring that "Let's everybody laugh at Christi" thing into my narrative writing. I'll have to work on that. Of course, maybe it's b/c I'm kind of a one-liner kinda gal. Maybe you can't be funny if you're just writing a series of funny and unrelated phrases. Maybe I can only be funny if engaged in conversation. Yeah, maybe that's it. Who knows....

Oh, and answer this for me, if you can: Why do you suppose that sleeping babies are SO DAMN CUTE, and make your heart just melt and fall to pieces? I swear I could check in on my babies every ten seconds all night long and not get tired of it, if I didn't have to sleep myself! It's my favorite part of the day. Makes me feel all giddy inside, and I get a stupid, goofy smile on my face!

Alright, I'll talk to you later. Have a great day!

    Well, no, I suppose it's because you know that they're sleeping, not screaming or yelling, or crying... that's why they are so sweet.

    Ditto to what Jillian said! They're so cute because they're quiet and not getting into anything! LOL

    I didn't comment because I didn't read blogs yesterday, but I'm on my way to read the next entry ..

    I'm not very good about giving disappointed looks. Usually I'm one to say I understand and how hard it is, BUT... I will do my best to be strict with you. :) I think you did great today BTW.

    way to go on the diet... I'm still struggling to lose my last 10 pounds. aaaah... the illusive last 10 pounds!

    keep up the great work... before you know it, you won't need a guilt trip to work out!! Just keep thinking about a sexy Christmas outfit, and how HOT you'll be for new year's!!!! :)
