Your a pain in my ummm back!

So yesterday I was at our Local Wal-Mart when I was rushing to get my 3 year old and myself to the "Family" restroom. I grabbed leah out of the Grocery Cart and must of turned the wrong way and now my back is hurting AGAIN! I just hurt my back I guess about 3 months ago. Ugh! I found a job!!! So orientation is tomorrow, I really hope that I can stand to sit up just about all day. It's suppose to last all day long! But its a paid orientation so that is good to know that I will be paid for my time there. Was going to go by the Cookeville YMCA which is in the town I will be working in. I thought since I'd be working over there that I would get a membership there than here in my hometown. My hometown's YMCA just doesn't have anything worth mentioning!!!! They have a few treadmills and ellipticals and huge assortment of big weight machines really for men but they have a pool OUTSIDE but other than that there isn't much there. At the Cookeville Y they even have an area for younger kids to workout so to speak. Leah is in school now, so really she wouldn't be over there much maybe on the weekend or something. I plan to go workout either before work or afterwards depending on what my schedule is going to be like. I want to come up with some sort of plan to go by but not sure yet. I defiantely should walk/run but other than that not sure what to do. I am going to be using my Nike+ now that I have Nike+ shoes and an ipod touch that has the Nike+ app on there. I'm hoping that I can get wifi connection over there cause if so I can use the fitness apps that shows you various exercises to do.

Here is a list of know perks

Inside & Outside Pool
about 20-30 treadmills
about 10 ellipticals
a couple stair steppers
A huge assortment of weight machines and not just for men which is a good thing
an area for workout which is similar to the curves program
Sitter's/Playroom for smaller children so the parents can workout

plus so much more............now if only my back gets better so I can start working out! I guess I need to ease into it so I don't do even more damage to my back. I'm sure it will be better in a few days! Maybe by monday I can begin my workouts!

cloudy with a chance of meatballs

I bought this movie the other day for Leah hoping that she would like it. She didn’t seem to care for it. I had heard if you liked the movie “UP” you would like this. It was an okay movie, but leah quickly lost interest. It about a guy who seems to want to make a difference in the world but just wants his father’s approval. Things get out of hand and needs help from the whole town to save the world.

Gone but not forgotten

So much has been going on lately and I really don’t know where to start? I’ve not really been keeping this blog up to date, however I do plan to start trying to get back into the groove of things.
My baby girl, Leah Josephine started going to  elementary school, I guess it was a few weeks before Thanksgiving. She’s only 3 years old so normally she would not even be going to school. But, she had tubes put in her ears, in which they tested her hearing before hand and one of her eardrums did not respond. I’m hoping that the tubes have helped! I do see a great improvement over the last several months. Any ways the ear doctor thought she should be tested to see if she is where she needs to be in different area’s of development. She was tested through our public school system. They said she was about a year behind in cognitive development and communitive she was around 6 months behind. But I have seen a lot of improvement in her vocabulary in the last several months and I think she is doing very well. They think she will still be able to start kindergarten with kids her own age.
Since October my husband and I have done nothing BUT argue! I knew something was wrong, I just didn’t know what? I think a woman knows when something is going on. My sister, Marcia always told me you would know. I think a woman always has something about them to tell them when something isn’t right. Be it about your marriage or someone who isn’t of good company to your children. I won’t give all the details of everything that went on cause, I know there are people that I know in RL that I think is none of their business. I believe that one of the men he is good friends with at work, who we know pretty good cause we’ve been to church with them that has been talking to him. I ask his wife to pray for him. I know my mom has, and I have too. To be honest I think our little girl has too. I know most people do not agree with me taking him back. But, I’ve never believed in divorce. I want my daughter to have both me and her father around to be there for her.
I had to drop one of my courses in school this semester, so now I’m currently only taking one class at a time. But I know next semester if I continue to go to school I need to add another class. I’m thinking of transferring and taking one class at a time anyways, Cause I’m seriously hoping I can find a job soon. We are going to try and move out of my husband’s aunts house soon so I want to be out of our own at least by the first of May. Which should be pretty doable. I don’t think I can really concentrate on school as much I think doing one course at a time would be plenty enough. With a family, a house to manage on my own, and running after a 3 year old. School would be overwhelming if I take too many classes at once.
Well, I’ve not been working out like I should but I really want to start trying to get back on track. I hope we can find a place that has enough room to put up my treadmill so I can begin to do my running/ walking once again. I have plenty of workout dvd’s too so maybe soon we will have the room to do that! I took some before pictures of me the other day, thought I would take a front and side view picture of myself once a month. I have a new camera and tripod so who knows one day I might get brave and do some actual vlogging.
