I think I might have figured out my Summer groove. The sad part is Summer is about half way through! Anyway, If you’ve been reading then you know that I did a three day cleanse and I have started to exercise again. I did have to throw the boys out of the living room this morning because I just can’t have them watching me. Since I last posted I have lost one pound. Maybe nothing you’d celebrate about, but for me it’s a big deal. I haven’t been able to lose this last five pounds nothing was helping so being able to lose one is a miracle and I’ll take it! So, now that I think I have the food thing figured out, I need to focus on an effective exercise program. Right now I’ve started Shaun T’s Rockin’ Body and I love it! So fun! I do however want to add a weight training routine in there as well.
I had one of those moments were I realized I wasn’t getting anywhere and it was up to me to decide how bad I wanted it. I do want it. I think that’s why I keep trying. I know I want it bad just due to the fact that just this morning I was thinking about how I was going to add weights and almost talked myself out of it because I’ll be busy next week. There is always going to be something. You need to just make a decision and stick to it the best you can. That’s my new mantra. I have today.
As far as the boys go I’ve put them on a schedule as well. They have been doing their worksheets and practicing their instruments almost daily. I’ve got them making their beds, clearing the table and putting away laundry. There is also lots of fun in between so don’t worry. I’ve declared it the Summer of Independence and the boys have embraced doing things for themselves. To the point of telling my husband when he asked my son to get him a drink, ” Daddy you need to get it yourself. It’s the Summer of Independence!” Ouch! LOL!
I still don’t have enough time for everything, but I’m learning that I’ll always be a work in progress. I’m okay with that.
