a night at safeco & a workout resolution

ah man.  birthday weekend is over, our visitors have left, & it's back to reality.

on saturday my two nephews alex & ben flew up from utah to hang out & go to the m's vs. red sox game last night.  oh, & to celebrate my & sam's birthdays too, of course.

the game was a blast.  alex & ben both got two baseballs during batting practice & had them signed by terry francona, the red sox manager... pretty cool.

then, during the game, some drunk red sox fan in the front row {we were only 7 rows back} decided it was a good idea to reach over the barrier & grab a ball that was still in play which results in automatic ejection from the ball park.  his loss was our gain.  the four of us jumped all over that & took his seats!  hellllllloooo front row seats at safeco!  it was good times.

clearly parker was beside himself with excitement.

aaahhh, safeco. even though your mariners are horrible, you are still my happy place.

& now that all the birthday cakes (or birthday cinnamon rolls & cookies, rather) are eaten it's time to get serious.  isn't that kinda what i promised last week?  well this week i mean it.

i'm getting serious, & now you're all invited to join me.

i'm not going this alone anymore.  i'm teaming up with lindsey from linkie lueville to start a workout/fitness/get-healthy-again blog hop.  we're going to report every week on our fitness/health goals & have a mclinky for other bloggers to join in.  we can link up to our weekly posts & help support each other & keep each other accountable.

sound good?

now all we need is a fancy name to call this blog hop & a badge & we'll be official.  any suggestions?  but we're kicking it off informally this week & encourage anyone & everyone who wants to join in to sign up below!

do it. do it. do it.

so, a report on my last week.  i worked out three times.  barely.  two runs & a walk/hike.  does that even count as a workout?  this, from someone who used to work out 7-10 hours a week, barely gets in 3 hours this last week.  ah well, you gotta start somewhere. 

& this week, i resolve to do the same, & then a little more.  three cardio work outs & two strength training workouts.  yup... upping the ante.  look out.

now it's your turn... don't be scurrred, sign up!

    And you score gigantic extra points for noticing the "hues" in my mr. potato head shot - HA! I was going for a retro look, and I didn't know if it looked retro or wrong. :-) You made me feel better!
