Well, that made my day....

I had to get up at 6 this morning, wake up all the kids, and get Jason to work. Today was one of those days where "little miss" (we still haven't figured out a name for her yet) wanted to take all my energy to grow and leave me with very little to chase the other 3 kids with, let alone do the elliptical or go 2 miles. So, needless to say I was feeling really drained. I took a nap during nap/quiet time and procrastinated the elliptical until the very last minute before the kids quiet time was up. I talked to my mom online, tried to take pictures of my belly, stared at the food in the fridge, checked blogs, tried to find a shirt and bra that actually fit, I ate a couple chocolates (lol!) and finally went down stairs and got my 30 minutes in.

I'm glad I did it. It gave me the energy I needed to chase after & clean up little Annabelle after she threw up all over the living room floor. It also helped me have patience with the other 2 who decided they'd totally trash their room "just because". I love how exercise can do that. As much as I didn't want to do it with the little energy I had, I got it done and I'm a better momma because of it.

......but, do you want to know what REALLY made my day?
I'm a fan of them on Facebook (go be their fan and enter the giveaway too) and they've been doing weekly giveaways to support breast cancer. They've been giving away a Support Your Girls shirt and a Moving Comfort sports bra each week. I've entered the giveaway for past couple weeks, hoping I'd win, because my girls are growing and my poor cheap little sports bras aren't doing much to support them anymore. I've heard GREAT things about Moving Comfort and have been eyeballing their bras forever, so today after I did the elliptical I came upstairs, cleaned up throw up, checked Facebook, and saw that there was a message waiting for me saying I had won. You have no idea how excited I was to see that!!! Momma's getting a new bra, plus an awesome shirt!!

So, now I'm off to do 2 miles around the lake with the kids...I'll be imagining the whole time what it's like to wear a spots bra that fits and supports my girls. I can't wait for it to come!

Pictures from todays 2 mile walk. We did good! :)

Go! Join them on FB and enter the giveaways!!!

It's so cool when you have a good thing happen in a hard day.
