I'm 39, and very happily married. I work full time, and at home I'm up to my elbows with a toddler, a teen, and two four legged kids, uh, dogs. Life's a wild ride and I'm sick of hiding from it behind unflattering clothes!

I'm not really sure how to explain it... Back when I was actually going to a gym, I saw a girl using a foam roller on her calves in a kind of reverse plank position, but you have your calves on the rolling pin instead of your feet on the floor, and instead of trying to keep your core straight, use your arms to roll yourself back and forth on the rolling pin so all of your body weight is distributed between your hands and the contact point with the rolling pin.

Trying to explain it sounds really awkward...

Or if you can get someone to roll out your legs while you're lying on your front. I tried to get Boy to help with that, but he wasn't applying enough pressure for that to do anything. Of course, he was distracted by whatever hockey game was on last night so he wasn't really trying :P

It gets hard holding yourself up like I tried to describe above, after a while, so I did end up trying to roll the rolling pin on my calves myself, but it's kind of awkward to apply enough pressure.

Let me know how it works for you. I certainly felt great afterwards and still this morning. It could just be that the act of stretching at all was enough to make a difference for me :)

Have a great weekend!

With us, I'm the one that gets restless and plans a million things. I've noticed the cycle before, but it's hard to work on being more balanced and leave time for regular life when all I'm thinking is 'But that sounds fun! Let's do that! Now!'

Why do I think I'll get the results I want if I don't actually do what is necessary to achieve them? It's the age-old dieting question I suppose.

The unfortunate other side of staying home more is I get kind of pouty and all 'we never do ANYTHING fun' after a while... which induces a spree of not being home at all... shortly followed by me burning out again and insisting that we become hermits... again... Hahahah! Such a silly cycle, eh? I just need to find that balance.

Thanks for your comment! I just posted a new blog with a picture of the Easter eggs.

My parents were HUGE on the "real" meaning of holidays...to the point where we didn't usually have a Christmas tree and stopped doing Easter baskets at a young age.

I'm a believer that you can do both. Good luck at finding that balance!

I was hoping there would be a ninja one but I think this is going to have to do:

Pirates can throw knives too, right?

Why is there a pirate and no ninja? Harumph!
