It's just been a few weeks into the new year and I'm already doing much better with my blog. Yes! January 12. Little Benjamin Chow was born. After much prayer he's finally here! I'm excited to meet the newest member of our growing family. Yet another halfer has been added to the mix. Chinese and Filipino. Chilipino. Filinese. None the less, little Benny is family.
Been working out more lately. I absolutely LOVE working out. I mean, I think I could be quite the girly girl, but I love sweating, getting all gross at the gym, pumping some iron, and getting that heart rate up. It's a great feeling. Not only am I feeling better and fitting into my clothes better, but I'm also gaining more energy to do the things I want to do. Like snowboarding!
Yes, last Saturday was my second attempt at this outdoor activity. Years and year and years ago I tried it for the first time and HATED IT!! I'll spare you the details. But, for part 2 of my Christmas present, the bf took me to Big Bear to board. I loved it! He was very patient with me and I only got frustrated for 20 minutes during my second run. Not bad, right? And, I learned a little about myself.
1. I CAN get out of bed by 5 a.m. if I really wanted to.
2. I'm goofy.... footed.
3. I prefer my heels over my toesies.
4. I can get up quite easily toe-side, but not heel-side...hence the aforementioned frustration.
5. I can plow and kindda leaf.
6. I detest the blasted lift.
7. I can get up if I stop telling myself that I can't get up.
My growing family, working out, and having fun in the snow make me smile. =)
