Does life ever stop being crazy?!

Thursday, January 03, 2019

For a brief moment when my youngest graduated high school, I was bored and wasn't sure what I would do with my time after homeschooling for 32 years....I should've savored that moment way more than I did! LOL

My mom recently bought a house near me and I am the 'on site contractor' for the work being done...I spend a lot of my days orchestrating, tile guys, electricians, landscapers, gutter installers, etc, etc, etc. I am VERY happy my mom and stepdad will be so close, but I will also be VERY happy when my contractor days are over!! I am totally NOT bored!

I left the job site today in time to make the last 20 minutes of my 60 minute cardio drums exercise class. I figured if I didn't go beat on something, I might start to cry! Yesterday, I put my phone on airplane mode (LOL) for an hour and went to pilates out of self defense. The day before that I put on loud music and turned my own chores into a workout bc New Year's Day was a day off from the remodel job.

I am trying!!!

PS. I came in 3rd in the last weight maintenance challenge on The At Goal team!

Then I felt like I was 'too fat' when I signed up for the next one and lowered my weight goal several pounds which was a rookie move. I know better than that. Oh well, nobody likes to feel like they aren't meeting their goals but I'm trying to keep in mind than I am meeting my previous goal...not the one I made when I totally wasn't thinking!

    I’ve been in AZ with my girlfriend the last 3 weeks. She & her hubby bought a new house here. We’ve been doing the same thing - babysitting contractors! I feel for you.

    Congrats on your 3rd place finish. With all you had going on, that’s quite an accomplishment!

    I love how determined you are. You showed up for the end of the class instead of skipping it because you were late and you turned your chores into a workout with loud music! That is how it's done.

    In my experience, life is never dull for long. You are great at handling the challenges!

    I can certainly imagine why you would NOT be bored watching over the construction.
    Sounds like intense work ... But of course once it's all done, then you can move on for
    your own fitness time. Congratulations for placing in the contest--How terrific!
