It’s a sad day indeed

Saturday, August 25, 2012

The world has suffer a great loss today; my dear friend Karen past away around noon. Karen had never smoked a day in her life nor had her husband, but still she suffered for almost 2 years before she past way from lung cancer. I know that it’s a good thing that she is no longer suffering, but I will dearly miss her. She taught me the meaning of love thy neighbor and showed me what having true character looked like. Even when she was sick she was the first person to stop and ask how you were doing, she cared deeply about everyone she knew, and through god she blessed anyone who came close to her. I feel extremely blessed to have been able to know her, it was a true honor.

Prayers for her family are always welcome…

Never ending house work....

Thursday, August 23, 2012

I don’t think my house work is ever going to end today… I have been up since early this morning doing house work none stop and it still looks like I haven’t done much… AND I HAVE!!!!! Having 4 children from ages 3-8, a husband and a spoiled dog is A LOT of work… I'm on load 5 of laundry and still not even half way done (I usually have to do 2 loads a day)… My children picked up lice somewhere so I got the wonderful task of treating, and nit picking their hair this morning. My two boys weren’t so bad having short hair and all but my two girls on the other hand…. My youngest daughter has very long hair and it took me like 3hrs to pick all the nits out of her hair, and my oldest daughter took about 2hours. Its 9pm and I still need to make dinner, finish washing every piece of fabric in the house, and re-vacuumed mattresses (I'm super paranoid I don’t want to have a relapse of lice because I didn’t get all the eggs) and tomorrow I'm going to have to clean and vacuum both our car and van and all the child seats… This is too much work for one person to do…

    My housework is never done & I do not even have children. There is always something to do even if it is not inside there is the outside. Can your husband help out & give the children each a chore to do? Take care & tomorrow is another day of the dreaded housework. I stated making list of things each day & marking them off as I complete them. Don't forget to take time out for you each day to get recharged.Even if it is 20 minutes No housework just you time. My Mom had 6 of us I do not know how she did it but she did. We all had chores to do & that helped Mom also.Take care

That sucks. Just keep slogging away at it. You can freeze some stuff too. Remember to take good care of you while you are at it.

In one day over 1200 calories burned and counting …

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

emoticonOh today has been wonderful so far,…

Today was my first day back to the gym after not being able to go to the gym at all in the past 2 weeks (I usually go to the gym 5-6 days a week) and all I can say is I LOVE YOU GYM!!!!! I am so proud of myself I did 1hr and 40min interval training on the treadmill and burned over 1000 calories, while on the treadmill I ran at 7mph (the fastest I have ever ran) several times for over a min each time. and I think that’s pretty dang good for a women that is 5 foot tall and weighs 212lbs, I feel like an obese bionic women lol.

Plus I did over and hour of lower body and core weight training. That brings my daily total thus far to 1241 calories that I will never see again …

Feeling guilty

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I need to start with I LOVE to work out at the gym, and I usually work out 2-3hr a day 5-6 days a week!!!
For the past 2 weeks I haven’t been able to go to the gym and work out. First things came up with my children (I have 4 young children) then my family and I went on a long camping trip, and then when we got back our gym was closed because they were upgrading their equipment. Today would have been the first day that I would have been able to go to the gym … but I had to drive my oldest son up to Portland and back (it’s at least a 4hr round trip) and now I am feeling guilty about not making it to the gym. I did work out in the past 2 weeks but felt like it wasn’t as hard as I would have done in the gym so I didn’t feel right about logging it as calories burned, and I did stay with my healthy eating. It’s just hard because I feel like I should be able to make time to really get that “burn” no matter what’s going on in my life… Oh well I guess tomorrow is a new day and I am for sure going to be getting up early to hit the gym.

Mini Muscle Women

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I am 2 months into my new life change and have found that I LOVE weight training. When I started working out at the gym I thought I would only do 3 days a week weight training for as little time as possible and now I weight train at least an hour a day 6 days a week. Today my personal trainer Tom took me into what I call the “man zone” of the gym (I hardly ever see women in that part of the gym …it’s where the heavier weights are, benches for pressing ext…) and I felt bad ass!! Tom pushed me to use 20lb and 30lb dumbbells; I did a plank with tom on my back for 10 seconds, I benched pressed for the first time ever… the best part is that I am finally seeing definition in my legs and arms…. I have dubbed myself …. Mini muscle women!!!!
