A Great Start to a Great Week!

Monday, June 23, 2008

I have had a great start to my Birthday week. Yesterday, my hubby went shopping with me and we got a pre-birthday present. He purchased a weight set and ball for me!!! Yay!!! He said he was also interested in using them, so we will both be working out now. We want to add a weight bench down the road, but for now I am thrilled and have enjoyed using them today.

We had the air put back in Nick's bicycle tires. This summer I am on a mission to get him riding. He is 8 and could care less, but I would like to take the kids walking with me and they will need their bikes to keep up. So I must teach him to ride. They have also started tennis lessons over the summer, so I will have an hour twice a week to get a fast walk in without them. So I can really walk much slower when we all go together. I would really like them to start understanding the importance of exercise.

We also purchased additional seeds for our garden. Nick loves to go out and pick the vegetables, he is just not much into eating them. We have our first cabbage just about ready to come off. We are all excited about that. We have had a million tomatoes and we have made homemade sauce. I am also going to try to can some of them to have during the winter. We have eggplant as well, and tonight, I made an eggplant lasagne/parmesan. It was really good and I can't wait to have it tomorrow night for dinner. Can you tell I am married to an Italian? Nick planted corn in his own little plant set. He LOVES corn! I hope they grow or he will be sad. We have spent a lot of time outside and it has been wonderful (even with the heat).

Well, I am going to go off to bed so I can get up early to workout and get ready for the bicycle training.

Have a great week!!!

    What a coincidence, it is my birthday week as well. LOL. Good for you for making it such a great week. I think it's a very good idea to involve family in our own fitness, although I can guess that is difficult to maintain that level of involvement as the kids get older. You look wonderful, keep it up!
