Ok, so I have enjoyed my summer and have loved putting my workouts and eating healthy first. However, school starts up next week and I'm back to work and back to tons of papers coming home and lunches to pack, and football practices and games to attend, gymnastics to run to and piano lessons too. I'm scared about finding the time to keep this up. I am feeling stronger, healthier and tighter in some places and know that I am making progress...even though I'm not seeing much on the scale. I'm still doing ChaLEAN Extreme and am in my first phase and I just want this journey to continue. I'm going to do my very best to stay focused and on track. I'm going to miss spending time out here on SP, but what can I say, I've become a bit of an addict with SP and Facebook...ooops :-) Thanks to everyone for your encouragement and motivation and friendships that I have made this summer. Look forward to having you there as I face the hurdles that will come my way this fall. I can say at least I am lucky to be a school teacher and can enjoy my summers and this summer gave me the chance to really get a healthy lifestyle going. I feel very thankful and blessed for all I have. So, here's to Back To School.

Ok, so this weekend I went to visit my mom. We had a GREAT time, but didn't do extremely well on our eating...of course we weren't completely crazy, but we enjoyed!! However we continued to exercise. We went for an 8 mile bike ride together, golfing, went to the Stuhr Museum, which included tons of walking so all in all it was very good! I felt fine with the weekend, even with splurging a bit on the food, because I know that I am focused and it is not something that is a daily thing, but an occassional thing. I didn't get home until yesterday...which was Monday afternoon around 5:00 pm, even though I was tired from the drive home I still went downstairs and did my CLX Burn Circuit 2, because it was scheduled for that day. I then invited some friends to join me today in WOWY to workout at 9:30 and because of them I got out of bed and downstairs for burn intervals and ab burner! I am feeling very proud of these accomplishments. I am loving the friends and people I have met on this journey and I am happier! I wish everyone could have this feeling in their life!

Today I just woke up very excited about Life in General! Feling more confident in myself, enjoying the things that I have. When you take time for yourself to make yourself healthy, you also become so much happier and so much better for those around you! I used to not workout because there was not enough time, I needed to be with my children and helping them with school, or activities, dinner, laundry, cleaning etc., what I have found out is I get more done and am available more for my children now that I workout and take that hour or hour and a half for me! I wish everyone could share this feeling! Your mind seems to become clearer and you are more present to those around you not to mention my relationship with God. I believe this is because things are clearer and I'm not bogged down with all those little things we have happening around us. Priorities become clear and simple.
This is sounding so mushy mushy, but I had to write it down as the feeling was just very presnet today.

Ok, so CE arrived on Friday and I had already done my turbo jam workouts so decided to start CE on Saturday. Even talked my hubby into trying it with me :-) (a little light hearted competition is always good for the marriage. lol) Anyway we made it through burn circuit 1 together on Saturday, had rest day on Sunday, yesterday I did burn circuit 2 on my onw while hubby was at work...he then did it in the evening. Today was burn intervals and extreme abs...OMG what a workout. I feel GREAT...now that it's over, but it was so intense and tough you have to really have your mind set to get through these workouts! My mind is set and I just keep thinking of the results I will see in the end! So for now, we made it through another day and pushed play! Yeah ME!
