Warrior Lobsters

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

It is just not my summer! Foam Fest....CANCELLED. No refunds. The folks behind the a Warrior Dash (red frog racing) offered free registration to those of us whose race was nixed, and a 25% off discount for a friend. So I signed my husband and myself up! We shall be a couple of lobster warriors. Lobsters mate for life. Phoebe said so;) it shall be some early mid thirties birthday fun for me. I'm looking forward to it.


Life is Good

Friday, July 04, 2014

I'm choosing to see the silver lining. I had a great adventure planned for this week. A great adventure that was thwarted by fevers, vomiting, ear infections, and general yuck. Very frustrating.
silver lining:
- I saved a few bucks without having additional gas, food, and lodging expenses.
- I spent an entire week at home, with no work responsibilities, with my husband and kids.
- The oldest got to practice driving.....something he would not have done had we been visiting a big unfamiliar city.
- We were able to spend some extra time with visiting family.

It worked out.
Know what hasn't?
I've been stretching....but that's it......since last Friday.

    Sometimes even working out has to take a day or two off. Work back into working out but take a time from this wizzy wise person I recently encountered; Oh yeah you! Continue to see the good in everything but always see the good in yourself first! emoticon

Foam, Full Moon and Pump

Sunday, May 18, 2014

In August I'll participate in the Foamfest 5k. I'm excited, and a bit intimidated. The course has 16 obstacles. ...and mud, foam, and water. A friend of mine is also racing. I'm Very grateful for that. Nervous, excited, and grateful.

Next month is the local evening run at the lake. 3.5 miles, and my husband and stepson will join me. That's a fun race. I'm looking forward to it.

I've begun instructing the Pump classes at the Y. This summer I'll be teaching at least one class each day, Monday through Friday, and every 1st and 3rd Saturday. It's fun to teach such a variety, too.

Life is good. Even when it's crazy busy and challenging. Life is good.


Nightly gratitude

Friday, March 21, 2014

I'm going to just accept that I have moved beyond needing to track every bit of exercise. It's safe to say that it is a habit, part of my life. I've been busy picking up extra classes at the gym. I've started subbing in schools again. I've been so busy I've had to turn down a week's worth of sub jobs, at least. I'm definitely entering a new stage. Certified group fitness instructor/substitute public school teacher, which in theory will allow me to have some flexibility for volunteering like the crazy overachieving mother I seem to be. I'm past the calm relaxing part of parenthood. The baby days, the toddler days. Fewer lazy days with my kids. But with their growing up we have more fun adventurous opportunities as a family. I'm grateful for my husband and how hard he works for our family. I'm grateful for the past decade we've had each other. His love is a blessing. I'm grateful for his support. His willingness to have me be a stay at home mom, and take on the role as sole breadwinner. His love for me and our kids. He's a good man. I'm grateful that I can help him now, that I am able to return to work, that I went to college before having kids. I'm grateful for his friendship and that we can work as a team. I'm grateful for my life and health. I'm grateful that my life can evolve thus far without my happiness and feelings of contentment and peace negatively impacted (too much). I'm grateful for a warm bed. And it's about that time, too. Good night.

Tracker Slacker

Monday, February 17, 2014

I have so totally not been tracking my fitness, at least not here. I've been using a different app and I got so behind logging them on this site that I just stopped. I've neglected my admin duty of awarding goodies for top fitness minute achieves. Sorry Team Redding. I've been studying for my GFI exam, and working and parenting.....life gets so busy. I'm not sure if I'm going to try to start logging again. I'll say that I will, though, and go from there. It isn't really a tool I feel I need at this point, but I do like seeing the minute total for the week.
