I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 12, 9, & 5. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. However, this also makes for very busy parents. It has become a real challenge to make time for myself. Honestly it has started to feel impossible. I'm really trying to put into prospective the fact that I'm not the only one in this situation and that it is possible to fit in things that matter like your health and exercise. ...

It's not that you can't....it's how can you? Its a challenge I've started with myself called 1 Good Thing. What 1 Good Thing have you done for yourself today?

I teach 3rd grade. It's not too bad compared to other grades but we do have standardized testing so it is getting a little more challenging. I might try to move down a grade or two in the next couple of years. Also trying to figure out when and what to get my masters in. I don't want to be a principal but I keep hearing it's almost pointless to get a masters in anything but administration so we shall see.
It doesn't take me too long to get my room ready anymore. This will be my 12th year of teaching, and the 4th year in the same grade, same room so that makes it easier. We didn't have to take everything down at the end of the year so I have even less to do. I just mostly need to set up my furniture. So on Monday I am taking my oldest one up there with me to do that. One of the days next week I might treat myself to some shopping at the mall for some new work clothes. :)
That sucks about your tracker. Yesterday I didn't get a lot of steps in but I sure worked!
Maybe you can do a little at a time on your yard and flower beds so it doesn't feel overwhelming.

It was hotter than Hades up at Holter. I didn't do much other than read and try and stay cool. I didn't do as good on the steps this weekend as I'd hoped but we got some good fishing in, 25 perch, and some good reading in. I'll take it. How was your weekend?

Then again it might...my weight can easily fluctuate 3 lbs in a day but there is still a possibility it is weight you really lost. Fingers crossed for you!

We had another busy weekend- on Saturday my dad came in to town because he has been wanting to babysit the little one. (Hardly anyone gets that pleasure- we are stuck like glue to that little guy :) ) We have been so busy between the painters and trying to get the yard ready that we didn't really want to go anywhere or do anything, but ended up going out to lunch and did a little shopping. It was nice.
On Sunday we finished getting the bushes out of the front yard and tilled up the ground so they can come mark where they are putting the beds in, which will probably mean more tilling this evening. Of course, my husband did most of the work, but it was a good work out, and I can feel it in the backs of my legs today.
This is my last week before I go back to work. I technically have two weeks, but I like to go back unofficially one week beforehand so I can get my room ready without interruptions and the little one can get used to the morning schedule. UGH. Summer seems so short.
