|my sweet Bella! bottom paragraph explains how I found her here..|
This week has been interesting because I am gearing up to fly to Seattle and shoot two engagements and a maternity session and also pack up miss Michaela. I am also recovering from shooting an all-day Relay For Life event which I will be posting about on Thursday. On top of that, my in-laws will be in town the day I get back from Seattle (and let's be honest, I can't count on husband to clean things to my standard so I need to get everything in order before boarding that plane)! We also have amped up our workouts--- which really just means we are making sure to get in some exercise everyday-- no excuses.
Yesterday was one of those weird lupus days. I know that it is active in my body because I have the signs on my wrists, elbows, knees and neck. Small shiny, red raised areas that look like hives. They will quickly go away but for now are reminding me not to push it too much. I am still making time for the gym or a run no matter what though. I am testing my body this month, I want to see how much I can demand of myself. I am being smart about it though, so don't worry about me. Actually, this brings me to a pretty interesting question. I talk a lot about lupus but most of you have no idea what that exactly IS or what it MEANS. Is that something I should write a short post on? Just so you know what I am talking about, and that I am not contagious or anything? I would really love feedback on that one.
Our time in California is going by so quickly and I want to press the pause button. I love so much being near San Francisco and I know that that my heart is going to ache for it when we leave. Isn't that amazing how places can take up spots in your very soul and lodge themselves there? California in general is one of them. Even LA...I think about our time there and get nostalgic about our evening walks, driving through Hollywood and picking up veggies from farmer's markets. Sigh.
Today I will be putting on my domestic pants and seriously getting this apartment squeaky clean. Bella and I will go for a walk and I will drag my butt once outdoors to put in a distance run. Speaking of, one more question for you. Would you rather read about RUNNING TIPS tomorrow or STRENGTHENING EXERCISES? please, please leave a comment because I am going out to put together the fitness post for tomorrow and I want to talk about what YOU are interested in hearing!
In closing, I am going to leave you with the sweetest picture of my Baby Bella (up top!) that I got on my iphone yesterday. I was cleaning and couldn't find her and went into the bedroom to find her buried and curled up in her pile of toys. She had crawled in, army style (at least it looks that way) and was napping away. Oh, I love my little peanut girl.
