I feel excited and I think I like it

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I got up this morning and made the kids, myself, and my darling Maltese, China breakfast. We had a great morning. After they left, I made a spontaneous decision this morning at 8:10 to not stay home and be on the computer all day and watch tv. I got swim items together, took a shower, shaved, got dressed, and headed out. Stopped at the library and then went on to the pool. School will be out in a week and I thought it would be great to get some exercise time in alone before its out. I got in 60 minutes of cardio in the pool and 10 minutes of stretching exercise. Headed up to subway and ate really healthy, then went down to shoot some hoops for 15 minutes. I would have done more, but I haven't exercised hardly at all in a few months. I had a blast in the pool. I love water. I'm not a great swimmer, but I had fun getting my heart rate going. I'm so excited about the weeks to come and all that we're going to do. I'm expecting great results! Came home and made supper for the boys, myself, and my dad. Mom has had a stomach virus so I made sure to make dad something as well since she didn't feel like cooking. We help each other out like that all the time. I love having her right beside me. I'm so thankful for our relationship. I came back after taking dad his plate and asked the boys if it was good and Jacob said, you don't hear us talking do you... as to say, they were too busy eating lol. It was good. I don't buy pork chops very often, but I do once in a great while. Awesome day! emoticon

    I love your son's response to you asking about the meal. emoticon

    BTW, I've always loved your background. It's so beautiful and peaceful. I love purple too so that helps.

    That really does sound like a fantastic day! Everything about it! I'm so proud of you that you made that decision to get out and get moving. It sounds like you really had fun. I'm not a very strong swimmer, either, but I do like to be in the pool. I need to remember about doing different cardio exercises in the water.

    I bet your dad really appreciated the plate you took up. I am so excited--in a few months I will be moving to the city that my parents live in and it will be nice to be close by. You're so lucky to have a good relationship with your mom. Ours was rocky for a while but in the last few years I think my mom realized life is too short and has really become a lot more supportive and accepting, so I'm glad to have her. :)
