Gosh it has been forever again. It's just so hard to keep updated here. I can't believe it's already 2016 and we are one month in for that matter.
So I just wanted to check in for a quick minute and get updated on what's been going on.
My daughter just informed me she will be 17 in less than five years! I think I had a mini freak out. She has grown up so much in the last year. I am not sure I am ready for all that. Just a few days ago she was running around saying "Swiper no Swiping!!" and Dora was our hero. Now she is all about the Magcon boys....whatever that is.
My son is now playing basketball and he loves it. He's pretty good too. His entire class is full of great athletes. He still loves baseball as his favorite. It's mine too but basketball is growing on me.
On January 4th I joined SkinnyMeg's diet bet. I am almost there! we have until Sunday I believe and I am really buckling down for the last two pounds. I really need to win!
Today I started something I've been wanting to do for a really long time. I joined a gym. A friend of mine has been after me to join her for a long time but I just couldn't figure out how to make it work with the kids. I finally just nailed down and asked my babysitter from the summer if she would watch the kids 3 nights a week so I could go. Of course she said yes and I was happy. It's only a few hours and I just have to get over the Mommy Guilt and do it. I have to invest in me so I can be here for my kids in the long run. I'm less than three years from 40 and if not now when.
I not only joined the gym but started with a personal trainer. My husband and I have talked a lot about is and he is all for it. He always supports anything I want to do. However the mommy guilt is a hard thing for me . I never get my hair or nails done. I told myself if I would avoid Ross and/or TJ Maxx for the next 6 weeks I will have more than made up for it. I know that sounds silly but those are my weaknesses and really the only other time I spend money on me.
I am already so sore and I know tomorrow is going to be worse. I bought a foam roller and tried. LOL. I will get the hang of it, I'm sure. I was really surprised by some of the stuff I could do. The girls I am working out with are great too.
So today is the day. I've made the long term investment. I've done great on the diet bet but now I am going to kick it up a notch and really focus on my diet and kick those workouts.
