Currently (7-9-12)

Currently I am...

Inspired by
my son. Every day he is making more and more strides with his language. We were concerned about his language because he doesn't say  a lot that's really understandable. He DOES talk, but it's not always anything that we understand. For a while, he wasn't repeating words either, but that's all changed. He's doing REALLY WELL and I'm so proud of him.

Devouring
Sudafed after Sudafed. I have a summer cold and it stinks. I'm pretty sure my parents brought it down with them and passed it on to me while they were here. They said it's only a two or three day cold and by the third day they felt over it (I'm on day two). I hope they're right.

Thankful for
an incredible week-long visit with my parents. Not only was it so great to see them and spend quality time with them, but Gus is finally at a stage where he recognizes them and was very affectionate with them. He was all about crawling up on their laps, eating breakfast with them, and snuggling with them before bed. It was so sweet to see them with him, and I am thankful that we've reached this time in his life.

Watching
Parenthood season 1 on Netflix. I just started watching this past season (season 3) and I instantly fell in love with the whole Braverman clan. Now I can't get enough of them and Netflix is helping with my addiction. Do you watch Parenthood?? If not, why not??? It's such a GREAT show!!

Starting
to feel healthier (though this past week was not a good week at all). I've been running and logging everything that I consume. It's been hard, but definitely a life-long change. I've lost ten pounds so far and I'm able to run for five minutes at a time (versus the thirty seconds that I was doing when I started back in April). I'm going on three months of changing my ways, and I've realized that my #1 enemy is sugar. I need to reduce the amount of sugar that I consume, and my BIGGEST problem is pop (soda). I seriously have a problem and while I've done great by trying to reduce it to one pop a day, it's still too much. I am vowing to not buy any more pop (Steve, please hold me to this).

We've never been much of a soda/pop drinking family. Have you thought about trying seltzer water with lemon or lime or cucumber?

I second jeinnes. I like soda for the carbonation. I take a splash of 100% juice (my fav is black cherry) and seltzer water. Kinda like an Italian soda. I get my carbonation fix and dont have the calories.

Is it the caffeine you crave? I found this interesting chart for calorie vs caffeine ratio. So a large iced coffee lots of caffeine not a lot of calories (though I'm sure if you add enough sugar/ 1/2&1/2 you can make it more calories).

La Croix sparkling water is where it's at!

I loooooove Parenthood! I'm totally going through withdrawals now that the season is over!! I have such a soft spot for Crosby, but Julia is by far my favourite character. She absolutely blew me away in the season finale.

I hope your cold goes away soon! Colds are never fun - but summer colds are the worst.
