So, here I am, with Anna at our pastor’s house. It’s about 9 p.m. on a Friday night and their 4 kids (a less than 1 year old, a 2 year old, a 4 year old, and a 6 year old) are already asleep. They’re such great kids! I feel really honored that they would invite us to watch their children–they’re so well-adjusted and they play well together. In fact, they’re the ones who said that we were here to “kidsit” since they’re not babies anymore! Anna and I love babysitting/kidsitting; and it’s weird how at times it seems like some parents hesitate to ask us to watch their children. Almost like they think we don’t know how to take care of children or something since we haven’t had our own yet. But not our Pastor Rich and Erin. They trust us. And that trust feels great!

On top of that, Anna blessed me with a delicious dinner. We had a field greens salad with walnuts and Gouda cheese; homemade crab cakes; and risotto. So amazing. I love it when she cooks (although she doesn’t have that much confidence), and her food is SO good. I wish she would cook dinner more often (and not just so that I don’t have to as often!). Maybe that would give her more confidence.

I also read a great blog tonight! Diane, over at Fit to the Finish had a good post about learning from our healthy friends.

My totals:

.5 Hour on the Elliptical

Remaining (Boo! There are lots left over):
.5 Hour on the Elliptical
1- 3 mile walk/run
Build up to 10- 20 second Planks

Goals for next week:
2.5 Hours on the Elliptical
4- 3 mile walks (I know that I’ll need to do at least 1 walk during the weekend).
700 calf raises
350 sit ups
Jump rope for 20 minutes

Go on one date with my wife

Please pray for my weigh-in tomorrow. I’d love to weigh in at 2.5 pounds lost. I know that might be a lot to ask, but that would bring me to my 1/2 way point. That would be super cool.

Bless you all!

One Response to Kidsitting

  1. I really like Diane's blog. To me, she speaks a lot of good, common sense. I also believe she is a Christian woman.Regarding the kidsitting – it is funny how many people think that having children is a qualifier to watching them, yet there are so many people who have children, but have no idea what to do with them. The best to you with your weigh-in tomorrow. Hitting the half-way mark would be a tremendous accomplishment. I'll be saying a prayer for you.
