Tired Anyone???

I've heard that your body can take a couple of weeks to recover from a race. I hope that's my problem because, can I BE any more tired (said in my best Chandler impersonation). Uggh. Every night I've been in bed early hence again my lackage of blogging.

I went to my plastics doc yesterday for a few touch ups. She tried a belly button lift and got rid of a "dog ear" on my side. It kind of looked like a nipple sticking out of my side from my scar (tummy tuck). Right now I'm feeling a bit sore and swollen in those areas. She said she may need to go in to do the belly button again. My skin just got stretched beyond recognition from the combination of being fat and then having two healthy babies in me. It's like that old sweater you love but now the arms hang to the floor and it hangs off your shoulders because it's been stretched out too much? Yeah..that's what my tummy looked like. My skin has just been very hard to deal with.

In the last blog, we were off to the farms and I promised pics so here they are:

First, they grabbed some punkins

Then, my darling duo sat in a tractor tire

Then it was family photo time

After that, I got a little lovin'

Sat in an old car (all 3 looking I can't believe it)

Went through several hay mazes

Rode some ponies

Rode a few trains and bounced on some castles

Made it to the castle in the middle of a corn maze

But we never found the great pumpkin in the pumpkin patchI LOVE living where I live. I have the city life and country life within a 30 miles radius!!! Happy fall everyone.

The pictures are wonderful. You have a very beautiful family!

Keep fueling your body and getting some rest and you'll start feeling less tired soon.

I just rejoined WW last week, so I was encouraged by your progress when I just stumbled upon your blog this morning. Congratulations!

Those are wonderful pictures! I echo the last part of MizFit's comment.

I have a half marathon next weekend and I'm hoping for little fatigue afterwards. I need to rally up for marathon training! How much time did you take off after the race?

What great pictures! And such beautiful children. Fall is one of the things I miss most living in Spain. So I live vicarously through everyone else's pumpkin pics! Thanks for sharing.

Ah, look how much fun you guys had! I always loved going to the pumpkin patch. The crisp air, picking out pumpkins and all the other cute things to see. Looks like you all had a great time.
