Summer whirlwind

  • It is a constant flow of activity in this house.
  • I have zero time at home for some quiet, me time. 
  • Park/Playground Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings = kids play mommy works out
  • Tuesday is story time
  • Monday and Wednesday evening is baseball/t-ball (only two more games to go!)
  • Wednesday and Thursday evenings Cody plays softball
  • Saturday = baseball/tball games for the kids
  • Breakfast, snack, lunch, naps, snack, dinner
  • Addy stays up all day and insists on my full attention during the twins' nap time
  • School book time with the kiddos
  • Skipping naps for swimming days
  • Two nights a week I run 
  • Starting this weekend I will start attempting to train for a mini triathlon (that is if I don't drown in the pool)
  • On top of it all, in about two weeks two of my closest friends here are moving, which makes three in the past two months.  
  • I am going to have to start opening myself up to new relationships, otherwise the next nine months is going to be extremely lonely

New phase

For about a month I have been training to run my first ever race - 10K mud, hills, water, and trails.

With that, I have also signed up with a trainer to work on my eating.  This week I began a cleanse - ridding my body of processed foods.  Essentially moving towards clean eating.  

My focus has been fitness and health in a more focused direction to hopefully make it a lifetime change.  

I was scared to share any of my successes for fear of failing, but it's all been going great and I want to share so I can look back and see what I have accomplished.
