What a week I've had. Really as I reflect it has been quite a roller coaster since returning from vacation.
First I am so grateful for the vacation time my family had together. We got a cabin on Kentucky lake for 5 days. I remember my daughter 17 asking me..."what are we gonna do?" I laughed and said "well, we are going to look at each other until we like each other again." Ya know I have told that story for effect but ya know it really did happen. Imagine 3 adults and one 6 year old boy a 110lb lab and two small dogs in a very small cabin. Some may consider this torture but it was pure heaven to me~ We fished and fished and fished and I was up early for my quiet time and walked a little. I cooked breakfast every morning and dinner every evening. Usually my DH cooked something on the grill and I made the sides. I tell ya GOD is so good. We just spent time together as a family....no big secret but in todays world it is a rarity. By the last night DH and I were washing dishes and my 17 yo daughter and 6 yo son were playing cards together....without raising their voices...without getting angry with each other. They were actually enjoying each other. Thank you God. I can also see where this has enhanced our family relationship here at home. We are talking more and laughing more together. My daughter actually doesn't mind her 'ol parents company anymore. LOL! TRUTH!
So, whew....I am a rambler!
Since coming back my son went to the city with Grandparents for a weekend and my daughter went to Chicago. He came back with strep and she is terribly sick (almost admitted to hospital sick) with pyelonephritis(kidneys)...I'm encouraged ...she was much better yesterday evening and still asleep this morning.
Well, I have used all these crisis' to not be active...or be as attentive to what goes in my mouth. And, the scales were showing it. I began to track every bite lick and taste and have got down a few lbs already. However, I was still making excuses for not doing any workouts. Even using my childrens' illnesses. Anyway....the cycle is broken.... .......
P90X restarted last evening. I have made a change though...instead of the classic I am going to do the lean track for a while. What was last night...oh yea...core synergistics....can I say OH MY!!! Banana!!!!!!!!!!! Superman!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!
Oh yea if you have read this far....congrats and I am curious..anyone going to Cincinnati OH?
