With my oldest back in school, I am up early again. I am watching the neighbor girl while her parents work and therefore don't get to go back to bed like last year. However I have about 45 minutes between sending my oldest off on the bus to when she shows up. What is that good for? A 20-30 minute workout!!! Who could ask for a better opportunity than that!?! It has only been two days into the school year, but that is two days I have found the time to workout right away in the morning...another bonus to this, when its quiet/nap time, this mommy can do other things than workout...like nap with the kids!!
I have made a personal monthly goal to workout for 500 minutes. It has been some time since I did this and really want to do this again. I am doing The Firm Express workout program this month. They want you to workout 20 minutes three times a week, however I need more time or I will just quite due to lack of activity, so on my "off" days I am doing the two 10 minute Express workouts, which kick my butt!!
I am not a breakfast eater, but with the morning workouts, I am finding myself actually eating something good. It has been oatmeal, but it is filling and healthy! I am following a new menu plan for my suppers. It is from eMeals, www.emeals.com
I really like the website and the fact that I have 7 meals and a shopping list for the week. For a family of 4-6 I haven't spent more than $90 on those meals, and they are healthy and filling. Once less thing for this mommy to worry about!
I hope everyone is having a great day and keep that Spark buring!!!
