Getting ready to start a new week.

I see I have not posted in here for quite some time. Last week was a bit crazy, full of workouts and a big trip. I spent all of Friday running around trying to pack, feed kids, clean house, do laundry and work out. It was a crazy day, but by some miracle we made it out pretty much on time. The drive was a bit treacherous for the middle half, but we made it somehow. Not without incident in the van, but I probably should not describe it in here. Let's just say it involved a very smelly mess and a very cold, half-naked boy in the open van at a yucky gas station part way there. Yikes. It was not pretty. At any rate, we survived it and we made it back the next day on time to get the boys to bed fairly close to their bed times. Even still, there is a lot of grouchiness in the air, and I'm not looking forward to tomorrow when Mike returns to work.

Even now, in the evening, I have so many interruptions that I can't seem to get much down in this blog. Cody has had insomnia tonight for some reason, but I think he has finally fallen asleep. Mike and I are just watching the olympics. I kind of wish I were there. Mild weather, exciting action...sounds like fun. I'm going to have to sign off here. Before I do, for the record, I did not miss a single workout last week and yesterday I started a new week. Today was my day off, but tomorrow I am back in the swing of things. No tangible progress to report yet, other than the fact that I have been able to do my workout every day, despite migraines at the beginning of last week. I'm going to sign off. Goodnight.

Good for you...working out, etc. I'm going for 3-4x a week. I can feel a difference, but I'm not measuring or anything, just letting my clothes tell the story. Already feel more energy and more muscles that I didn't know i had...ha ha. I have also had more headaches, so maybe it is our body's way of cleansing or telling us we need to. I don't know.
Wondering if you watch It's a New Day. Dani Johnson Mom of 5 and millionaire business support woman was on and I found her really encouraging. She talks on how to get our children to succeed. How to honor, obey, trust, motivate personality types, etc. Starts very young. Her website has free info. I think. Maybe it would encourage you too...all kids want to succeed, and everyday we are grooming them. I'm trying out some ideas on my girls already. Have a great week!

Hey Jo, that's great that you are working out too. I am not yet at the point where I feel a difference, but hopefully I will get there fairly soon. I have not seen It's A New Day in a long time. I will have to check out that website. Thanks for the encouragement! You have a great week too.
