It is Monday and I am so ready to start a new week!!

Monday, March 31, 2008

Well this weekend went by rather uneventfully. I am more than okay with that, though. Yesterday I spent the day with the kids and we played Lego Star Wars on the PS3 -- I LOVE that stupid game!! Then we watched movies and just had a good time. They go back to school today and I don't think that they are overly happy about it. I had such a good time having them home, but I will be glad to have our routine back. I didn't get to the Y as much as I would have liked last week as the older two don't like going to Fun Time (can I blame them?). So I got a lot of exercising done here at home, which is okay. The kids and I are going to have to come to an understanding this summer as I plan to keep going to the Y and they are going to have to come, too. Daddy will be home on some of the days and they will be able to stay home with him, but I am NOT giving up my exercise time. I literally do everything for them and hubby (and quite honestly wouldn't have it any other way) but this is MY thing and I am not giving it up!! Selfish as that may sound.

Speaking of exercise, I got the Get Ripped 1,000 DVD and did that this past weekend and WHEW!! What a workout that was. My muscles are still a bit sore from that. I am going to try to get that workout in once a week to go along with the weights that I do at the Y. I am putting a bit more focus on the strength training. I have noticed that since I have been doing that, my endurance has gone up a lot when I do the cardio. I am off for spinning today - woo hoo! Mr. Baby will be glad to ge to play and I will be glad to get out of the house for a bit. I am just glad that we didn't get much snow last night. It is still cold out and it is supposed to be gray and overcast all day. I am so ready for summer, shorts, capris, and flip flops!!

So far maintenance is going really well for me. I feel so different going into maintenance this time. Years back when I lost all the weight after having my DD I ended up gaining it back... and then some! I have such a different perspective on things now then I did back then. Then, it was all about eating healthy for that time and exercising for that time. Now it is all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle for the long haul. And exercise! Where would I be without it? I truly LOVE it!!! I couldn't give it up for anything!

Okay enough of my rambling. I am off as Mr. Baby is waking up! Happy Monday all!!

    I am so glad maintenance is going well for you, you really do deserve it and you look great! I do think exercise is the key.

    It is nice having the clan home, but also nice to get the routine back. Yep, they will just have to understand that that's Mommy's time & will have to adjust to it. It's good for them to learn early on that "If mom's not happy, aint' NOBODY's happy!" If going to the Y makes mommy happy, then we need to go with it! LOL!

    We too had an uneventful wkend, nothing wrong with that. Only my game of choice was the wii, playing Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. I'm getting pretty good @ it.

    I can't wait to get to maintenance mode, someday it will come. I'm hoping this isn't it, but I may have to accept it is. I don't know anymore.

    Many hugs, Ruth
