Thankful for exercise today!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I came home from my 1st day back at work since the long summer and could already feel the stress in my back and head. It was 6:00pm and no one (3 people home all day) had even thought about starting supper. The stress keeps mounting...

I fixed grilled boneless pork loins, broccoli, and cottage cheese (from carton) for our supper and still felt overwhelmed. I sat down to take a break (and calm down) and my teenage daughter grabbed my hand and said, "Mom, we're going for a walk."

Forty minutes of walking and 400 jumping jacks later, all is well. I'm so thankful that I exercised today (and have a daughter that knows what I need). It was a sanity saver (literally!).

    What a thoughtful daughter! I'm starting back to work on September 3rd and my plan is to set up weekly meal plans and post them in the kitchen. That way whoever makes it home first in the evening can get dinner started. I'm also planning to prep breakfasts the night before so that getting out the door isn't so stressful in the mornings.
