Yup, another morning of not wanting to exercise. I made my best effort to NOT exercise this morning, too, even watching a movie with the kids as soon as they got up. I tried to use the excuse that DD is sick as my excuse to not exercise. But ... Read more

One Week Down

Thursday, May 20, 2010      0 comments

I'm back. After feeling like such a schlump yesterday, it was much easier to get up and do what I knew I should today. Sometimes failing to follow through actually lets you see how good "just doing it" feels. So, even though I was disappointe... Read more

Well, just two days into my new routine and I did not follow through. :( My daughter climbed into bed with me at 5 a.m. and spent the next 2 1/2 hours smiling at me, wiggling, squirming, getting up to go potty, etc. I was so tired when my ala... Read more

Unless I get up shockingly early tomorrow, I am not planning to exercise. I've recently started singing on my church's praise team, so I have to be there by 9 a.m. for practice. That's pretty early for me since I'm not used to having to leave ... Read more

Best Laid Plans

Saturday, May 15, 2010      4 comments

I had such great plans for yesterday, and I lost control of my day. That's not exactly true. I really gave up control. But I have a reason. I'm going to be working like crazy for the next week. As I was sitting with the kids having brea... Read more

I found out this morning that I'm about to be innundated with work for the next week. So, in an effort to not get derrailed before I even get started, I went to the grocery store and did all my shopping so we wouldn't have the "no food in the h... Read more
