Well, I'm a reading fool again (thanks in part to reading while I ride the bike and the routine we've established for Jake's bedtime that gives me good reading time each night) and have already gone through a couple of books in the last week or so...I want to share the wealth with all my friends! I used to hoard all my books but now, I buy cheapy paperbacks and don't see myself RE-reading too many of them so I'm going to start sending them on to my buddies randomly. If you're interested in being added to my random mailing list email me at elhernandez@gmail.com with your address and you could find yourself a little gifty in the mailbox from me someday soon :) Let me know if you're picky about what you read since I read pretty much anything...

I'm on day 5 of the new bike regimen...I added five minutes today for a total of almost 14 miles and just over 200 calories. It's getting easier to motivate myself to go down to the basement everyday. Haven't felt the results yet (hey - I'm impatient!) but I know they are coming. I've been a lot better about my snacking and late night eating too. Feels good to be taking better care of myself!

And finally, this little sweetheart (who also learned how to climb in the bathtub recently :p)

learned how to say "I Love You" Sunday night...everybody now..."awwwwwwwwwwwwwww."

Later gators!

    That little dude is SO cute. Love that pic. K..really...we are twins...look at us both working out. Kills me that ALL THAT WORK burns about the same amount of calories as a coke. But, whatever. I'm proud of myself anyway. And put me on your list.

    You must add The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory to your reading list. I started it last night and I seriously could have read until I finished it.... and it is over 600 pages long
