Wow....Has time flown or what?!

So here we are and it's holiday season!!!

Something happened to me yesterday...I can't explain it, but all I know today
is that I need to start putting myself first...it's so easy to get caught up in the
everyday that is your life...kids, husband, work, etc....but if you don't take care
of you than what good are you to those around you? Take a little time everyday
for yourself....it doesn't matter what you decide to do.

It's so crazy to me that once my kids went back to school, my days seemed to get even more chaotic! I think it's because they are on a set schedule, so I have to plan my day around drop-off, pick-up and occasionally volunteering at school. It seems like by the time I get home after drop-off and do a few household chores/errands - it's already time to go pick them up!!! Then it's homework, dinner, clean-up, bedtime... I'm definitely not complaining - I don't know how moms do it that work full time emoticon

Hello
Hello
Hello!!!
Just wanted to give a shout out to the team and see how everyone is doing!!!
My kids are back in school, and I thought once school started that it would be easier to
fall back into my routines.....well......I was mistaken...
So I am trying to get my motivation back....I think I dropped it somewhere and I am having a difficult time locating it....I am going to put up some signs later....so if any one sees it.....can you tell it to come on home? LOL!

Hey!
Well It's official.....last day of school for my three is this week!!!
I am excited and nervous all at the same time.
Highlights of the this summer: All three are going to summer school!

But I still need to find fun things to do without burning too much gas, and something easy on my wallet.....

Anyone have any summer activities planned??

I could really use some ideas/suggestions/light a candle-say a prayer...LOL!!

Hey team!

Happy New Year!

What a year 2012 was.....I am definitely glad that's over with!
So not to sound like a broken record, because I know some of you may have heard what I am about to say......I am going to say it anyway because I think sometimes when we hear/listen to someone talk about the things they want to accomplish in a new year, we tend to (secretly) do the eye roll and disregard the entire message to begin with.....So here goes....

Yes, It's a new year....& a new you!
I will be honest and say, I am that women who makes a resolution every year to commit, to lose this weight that is holding me down. And yes, I start in January and as March nears, I am back on double cheeseburgers with fries and a soda!

But.....This year is different

I don't know how to explain it, I just feel like this year is my year to reach high, to finally, fully commit to all the things I want to accomplish in my life...not just lose the weight, but I want to go back to work, I want my children to be involved in extra activities, I could go on but think about it..............

I am ready for change, are you ready for a change?
I am ready to see it through, are you ready to see it through too?

I know it's going to take some time, but for me, right now, I feel like its worth working towards and seeing it through!

What ever you decide to do or accomplish in this new year, you can do it
Is it going to be easy? probably not, but its worth working towards!

Hey Team!
How is everyone doing??

Now that my three little amigos are back in school, I have been trying to get back into "shrink mode". I found a workout in one of my favorite fitness magazines, that I just started on Monday.

So far so good...A little sore but, I feel like the workout plan is challenging enough for me to stick with for the next 30 days. After that I will either start something new or aim for the next set of weights to add to the workouts.....we shall see...

We don't start school for another year but I can't wait for mommy and me group to start back up, as well as story time. We are hot and bored, have cabin fever a little here :)

We did discover the trampoline arena in town (Skywalk), which has a dedicated time for kids under 6 to jump without being trampled by bigger kids and adults. It is SO much fun, I can't help but jump for almost the whole hour myself!

I don't know about any of you..................

But, I can't wait for my kids to go back to school!!

Summer was fun, but a little challenging, I know next year If I get my three into a summer program I would definitely prefer if it's location is a little closer to my home versus way across town....

But, it was worth it, my kids had fun and made friends so you can't put a price on that.

So, how was your summer?

Alright....
So today was a first day of summer school for the boys and half day summer camp for all three amigo's!

The boys came home and told me they loved it!
When I picked all three up from summer camp, the boys had alot of fun, my daughter was not so impressed, but (she's 9 going on 14-LOL) she told me that it was ok.

I was going through the papers the boys brought home from summer school, and see a note from the principal stating that summer school is only Monday thru Thursday.

I was reading the note out loud and one of the boys said " Mom could you call him and tell him we want to come on Fridays?" I have to tell you, I am glad my boys don't mind going to school during the summer-because I know one day, they will not have the same enthusiasm when they are older-LOL!

That sounds like it will be a wonderful party!!!!

My triplets 1st birthday was in April and we rented a community hall and hosted a circus themed party and we even found decorations that said "three ring circus" how appropriate for our lives! My sister who is a chef graciously made delicious cupcakes and we had a popcorn machine and munchies, the big hit for the kids was a bouncy castle we rented.

I wish I could take a nap too, now that would be so nice!

Smiling just makes everyones day better :)

I love Fridays!

I remember when my two would nap, I would go take a nap too!

I started off my morning on my Aunt's farm, planting, raking, and all kinds of sweaty stuff from 8am till about 11:30. My whole body is sore......

My boys start summer school next week, and than all 3 are in a half day summer camp until August!!!! I am too excited!

Now while they are out I can concentrate on getting the house together because the boys will be turning 8 next saturday, I combined the theme of the party to a "Super Hero-Lua"....LOL!

I have plenty of both decorations, and I am just going to put it all up for everyone to see!
I am going to put there water slide up, and do just a basic barbecue: Burgers, Hotdogs, Potato Salad, etc..

My input for the day... This heat should be illegal. It's currently 101f at 230pm. This morning was the last day of our mommy and me group and most of our activities were outside... ugh :)

Way to go on the running!

My friend and I during the school year were walking/powerwalking around our local forest preserve and in her neighborhood. I am hoping with my kids in summer school and in half day summer camp that I can be a little more consistent with the powerwalking so that I can start running again. It's been a while since I ran but I know that I have to work my way to it.

Having a great Friday so far,

I hope all of you have a great weekend!

I picked up my running again this week so I'm feeling good. It's getting hot again, these fluctuations here are maddening!

hooray for AC! We had a mid-summer AC breakdown years ago when the boys were brand new, it was a crazy time :)

So....
My Air Conditioner is busted! There was a strange power surge last Thursday and it has not been working since. Memorial day was scorching hot, and I had every fan in all the windows
on Blast.

My brother-in-law is having one of his friends come look at our AC unit tomorrow, I pray that it doesn't kill my wallet getting it fixed. LOL!

The weather was nice today, so it was great to have a cool house!

I got up early today and got on my elliptical for an hour, I thought I would have time to do a second workout today, but the Laundry was starting a protest, so I took care of that instead.

Tomorrow works out great, My friend called and asked if I wanted to go walking in the forest preserve and I said yes----I love walking amongst all the trees & hills--it just feels peaceful.

After that I can come home and do one of my workout DVD's!

Tomorrow afternoon I will be volunteering at my kids school for "Beach Day" which is full of different fun events, I hope its as fun as last year.

Next Friday is the last Mommy & Me (at least until after summer), not sure what we are going to do until at least story time at the library is back in session. Some days I can't wait until they start school (my boys are almost 4 so we've still got some time) but then I know it's going to come way too soon for me :) Oh to not have to feel guilty for taking that time for myself to exercise though, that will be nice!

It's Friday!!!

I love Fridays.....
After school, I take my kids to the library to pick out new books to read for the following week, we also pick out movies to watch during the weekend.

Depending on how they do on there spelling tests at the end of the week, I treat them to the dollar store and let them pick out there favorite snacks.

Only 7 more days left of school for my three, so I am trying to get as much household stuff done before they get out of school. Between getting rid of old toys and clothes that don't fit, I have to squeeze in some workout time.

So does anyone have any plans for this Memorial Day Weekend?

Cold/flu made its way through the entire family two weeks back. This has been our first full week of everyone being generally healthy and it's been great! You never realize how critical it is to feel good ... Until you feel bad! Thankful we're all all better now.

I'd love to join the daily Chit Chat. I usuallly check my sparkpeople pages in the mornings while I drink coffee and figure out my day. I have 3 year old twin girls and two older kis (6&9). I still have some baby weight to lose and I love keeping track of it on sparkpeople. I know realize that my portions are way bigger than they should be. Now that my girls are 3 things have gotten a little easier, they play very well together. Well, I'm off to do my abd/back DVD... it's awesome and only 20 minutes long.

Feeling a little better today....still a little stuffy but.....the show must go on!

So I got my kids off to school today, and right after that I went grocery shopping
and of course I would leave the store without my medicine!
Oh well...
I plan on working out later on this evening, and making a list of items I missed getting at the store.

I've been dealing with allergies the last couple of days, it's kicked me hard and I've not been able to ride my bike (May = national bike month challenge!) I was 2 miles to my goal for the whole month and I was going crazy not finding time or energy to get out there and just finish my mileage. Finally fit in 15 miles today so yay for going over what I thought I could and I still have almost 2 weeks!

No fun dealing with a cold, vitamin c and vitamin a help the healing process. Feel better asap :)

So,
I got a mild cold from one of my boys this week, and it has slowed me down.
So my plan for the weekend is to try and get some medicine to clear up this stuffiness I want gone, and possible get some kind of rest.
