Although I am writing today, it's actually about yesterday I am writing about. I know what they say about April showers, but does everything need to look so dreary? I am definitely a "solar-powered" person and dark gloomy days just take every ounce of energy out of me. So yesterday, after spending the entire day in my p.j.'s, I finally changed to go pick up my son from school. I was seriously contemplating taking a nap and forgo my 50 minute cardio and said so out loud. My thirteen yr. old in all his wisdom debated me and finally said, "I order you to exercise. You've been working hard. Exercise, take a hot shower and then if you want you can take a nap". How could I argue with such logic? Nope I didn't take a nap even after my cardio, but I thanked God for sending my son my way, to keep me on track. Thank you God, thank you Jonathan.

This past week my children were on Spring Break and at home. I could see my daily routine slipping through my fingers. Try as I might, my exercise sessions at times were cut short; my tracking was at a minimum and truthfully because the children were home we went out to eat several times during the week making it difficult for me to plan. Some of the outings were spontaneous ...need I say more? It seemed as though the stars were aligned against me since there are times when my resolve and will are not very strong. My husband came home with two packages of Oreo cookies...my absolute weekness. I promptly and almost single-handedly finished the packages in two days. OOOOOoh the shame. All my hard work. So what's a body to do after creating such havoc? Send the kids back to school (:) This week the kids ARE back at school, but it's left me wondering, how should I handle the next change in routine? Summer will be here soon enough. For now I'm alright, only gained 1.5 lbs (I guess it could've been worse), but I'm back on track. I really need help

I am going to have to focus extra hard this week. My kids are home on Spring Break and already my routine is proving a difficult task to keep. Yesterday although I did my cardio for about 90 minutes, I dragged to do the strength training. Ended up doing half of what my routine calls for. I also had a bad eating evening. Managed to finish a bag of Wheat Thins (Garlic, whole grain), plus a bowl of cereal (my feeble attempt to quiet down my sweet tooth). All that after my late lunch (around 4:00p.m.). Today is another day, and I am going to focus!

Today is Monday and contrary to the popular.."rainy days and Mondays get me down" I'm in a great mood. The sun is out again, my family is all in good health. Had a fantastic breakfast of assorted fruits and yogurt and to top it off as of Friday (yes I weighed myself Saturday Sunday and again this morning just to make sure it was true) I've lost 10 lbs. Thank you Lord for the energy and determination to continue. Now I just have 20 more to go (teehee).

As much as I love Karen Carpenter and her music, her song "Rainy days and Mondays get me down..." really doesn't apply to me. I realize that I look forward to Mondays. I get the house to myself do my personal devotions and take my time. I do my exercise and do not have interruptions and to top it off, the sun is shining and that makes me even happier. I just love Monday mornings. I'm looking forward to the rest of the week.
