Like having them or being in charge of them.
Tonight I baby sat for one of my best friends, and she has 3 girls. 11, 10, and newly 6.
I am just terrible.. sure they love me, but that is because they can smell fear and know that I am not the “scary babysitter”, I am the fun one because I don’t know what else to do.
One had a carton of cherry tomatoes for dinner, another ate 3 sausage links, and the youngest had a PB and J bagel. Oh, but they were all properly fed ice cream. I let the youngest eat hers on the couch until the middle one yelled, “she’s not allowed to eat on the couch!” to which I glance over and notice that there is ice cream ALL OVER her face… we are talking eyebrow action here and all.
I guess, in the end, no one got sick, no one got injured, and the parents were happy to get a night away, so it wasn’t so bad.
Now I am just so so very ready for bed.
Just had a decent run. It got hot fast, even though when I started it was a perfect 66 degrees. I set out to do 7 and starting walking around 5.
Paul was riding his bike with me and as we going through campus, I noticed people walking in the Red Cedar. Having been here 10 years and never doing that, I decided we had to stop.
But after that, I was just really enjoying walking and talking with him, so I ended up walking until we got home.
So the bigger news: I accepted a new position with the Michigan Association of Counties as their Communications Coordinator. It is a very exciting opportunity for me and I am so honored that I was chosen for the position. It will be a lot of work, and I am so nervous about it, but things that are worth it are a little scary, right?
I am so sad to be leaving my job at State of Fitness. I love being a professional part of the fitness community and impacting peoples’ lives the way that SoF does. I will still be training there (as in working out there) and am still studying for my personal training certificate, but it will just be a change. They are such a great group of people who genuinely care about their members and they have changed my life in ways they will never understand.
But, here is to a new adventure! Wish me luck!
There is a lot going on right now that I will bring you all up to speed on this weekend, but for right now, happy September!
Anyone have goals set?
Eat clean (gluten free all month)
Do at least 50 squats a day (thank you squat challenge circulting on tumblr)
Stick to my training plan and not skipping any runs
Best of luck!
