6 month check up

Ok so this was a week ago but I have the info still in my head so I am going to put it down.

So on January 16th Hyde or Bryson Hyde Whitmer turned 6months. AHH how the time just flys by. He is getting so big. He weighed in at BIG 19lbs 15 oz. And was 29inches long. He loves to be on the floor now he loves to roll after his big brother and sister. And he loves to eat his veggies and fruit so I had to get that in because when I look back at this in about oh 10 months he will not like any of the things he does now... Pictures coming soon.

He is a good baby just wish he would sleep better if anyone has any suggestions on that please let me know thanks.

Ok so I am so so so so sore tonight as I am typing this my arms are sore my legs are sore and I am so tired also I just relized that even my fingers are sore...

And you ask yourselfs Why is she so sore? AHHH I'll tell you. Today was the first time meeting with my personal trainer. I was so nervous,excited,and scared as I walked into the gym this morning all three kids in toe. So I drop them off at the kids play area and go to find my trainer. Which by the way is a wonderful girl. Its just a love hate relationship. hehehe so she brings me back to her desk and I'm like this is great I can do this. Then she takes down some info on what I like to eat and what I weigh and my mesurements. And then she takes me up the the olipticals and we do that for oh about 10mins then we go downstairs and Im still thinking this is ok I can do this AND THEN THE BALL COMES OUT... AHHHHH. That is when she makes me do crunches and glute lifts and chest presses while i hold my but up and balance on this ball. then we did these side step things all I know is they hurt and then we did squats. At this point I was sweating and tired and she goes ok lets do it all again. AHHH.... YES i did live but at on point I thought i would.

I am now so excited that I get to go back and see her on Saturday ... Yeppie I'm gonna get skinny.....

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, then education, than money, than
circumstances, then failures, then successes, then what others people think or say or do. It is more important than apperance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....... a HOME. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for the day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and this is our attitude.... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you..... we are in charge of our ATTITUDES.."
