First off I want to say that I am, yet again posting this at my bedtime. Yesterday when I tried to post earlier in the day, guess what happened.... I didn't even post it until this morning. I came upstairs yesterday after diner and thinking I was just going to lie down before going to the gym, completely passed out and didn't wake up until this morning. I must say, I'm actually not a fan of all this sleeping because as great as it is, nothing gets done around the house.
So today a NEW DAY!!!! a wonderful day, a day that I could start having slept like a million hours. But really who was I kidding. I had the same fights I have every morning. "No!!! you can't wear a dress it's way to cold out", "Luke leave your sister alone", "Yes, you have to go to school today!", "Yes, I packed a fruit bar AND raisins in your lunch... I promise!!!". I think I should just get a recording of myself on my ipod and just play it really loud every morning. Anyway I manage to convince my daughter that she wants to go to school because she can bring her "poupee" doll. And by some miracle I make it to our Dr.'s appointment in time. We get home, boys fall asleep, I fold 5 loads of laundry while they are napping, then I pack them back into the van and off we go to pick up Annaliese. Amazing how fast my day goes by. I make stew for diner and leave the house to go the gym.... NOW for ME TIME!!!!
I amaze myself. Today I was awesome. Seriously, I did a spin class then went to "man zone", by myself, to do shoulders. I'm not sure why but I've decided that I want Jillian Micheal's shoulders. (Ok and back, and arms, and legs and pretty much everything... but lets focus on one part at a time). I did as many exercises as I could think of, plus a few back ones also. Then the fun begins... I get excited just thinking about it... I do push-ups with my hands on medicine balls. Not just one or two, I did 3 sets of 10.... Then since I was feeling pretty good about myself I grabbed a stability ball and put one foot on... balanced... then the other.... so now I look like a frog on the stability ball... THEN I GET UP!!! and stay up... I'm so proud of myself. I did 3 sets of 10 squats on the ball..... So I guess it made me pretty darn happy to be able to do that. I'm proud of what I accomplished today. So pride is a source of happiness! Isn't pride a sin? I'll have to look that one up.
