Busy Season!

Saturday, May 07, 2016

Hi there!
This has to be the busiest season in my life. So many things happening. I barely have had a chance to get on SP. I have been trying not to stress eat, but it's been hit and miss. I have been sticking to Crossfit and going to my workouts 3-4 times a week. It really does help with stress.
My stress isn't a "bad" stress, it's just a big change up in our lives. My oldest is graduating from high school on the 16th of this month. She has her own car now and is going to start college in August. She is also going on a senior trip with the school in June to Europe. emoticon My heart is in my throat. She raised half the money to go. I am very proud of her. She went to prom last week. I was thinking how did this happen? Didn't I just drop her off to kindergarten not too long ago? emoticon Now I have a beautiful young woman on my hands.

My youngest turned 16 last November. She is going into advanced classes for her Junior and Senior year of high school. She is taking college level classes. Whew....I don't know how she does it. I am proud of her as well. She takes her test for her driver's license at the end of the month. I have another young lady on my hands.

I am wondering what in the world do I do when they are both doing their own thing....I am going to have to think on this. Like so many other parents, my husband and I spent most of the last 18 or so years focused on them. I don't regret it, but I have to admit....I feel like I am going to be left behind. I guess I will focus on myself and just be their backup if they need me.

I did go on another 5K Bubble Run. It by far is one of my favorite things to do along with a night color run. I have been trying to do active things like hiking and these runs instead of just going out to eat. If I am going to go out to eat with family/friends, I make sure I have an active day and try to pick a sensible meal.

I am sticking with Paleo mostly 80%. I have to say that I am done eating pizza for a cheat meal. I feel AWFUL right into the next day. I am so sluggish. I feel "bad" with pasta as well. My stomach also feels sour. I do miss garlic breadsticks, but I know that I don't want to regret it in the morning....guess it's my version of a hang over! emoticon

Anyway, I have family coming in next week for the graduation so I will be busy for the next couple of weeks. Hope everyone is doing well!

God bless!

    You have been busy.
    Being with family is so important, your daughters are so beautiful. Many wonderful and exciting adventures for them. I do know how you feel though, they grow up so fast. Took me some time after my youngest graduated to adjust.

    The bubble run did look like lots of fun. I always enjoy your pictures your smiles brighten my day when I see them. Nice too see you emoticon

    Maybe it might be a good time to plan getting active that both you and your husband like to do together. It sometimes is a stressful time when the kids leave the nest and it is just you and the husband!

    Kids grow up so fast. There's a brief lull in between graduating and college and marriage. Then you are busy again. Enjoy!
