Today is the day.
I started my 21 day fix this morning with a cardio fix 30 minute workout. I am not proud of my 30 minutes, but I got through it with either doing the modified version, or just marching in place. It has taught me that all the climbing, running, intervals, and weight lifting do not compare to the thirty minutes I just finished. My 10 year old kicked my butt.
Now the containers. I would just like to point out that they look alot bigger in the advertisement than they do in real life. They made me realize that my biggest problem is not what I eat, but how much of it I eat. They are kind enough to give us a few cheater ideas (I chose wine), and have some recipes for some yummy treats.
Last night when I realized what I could not eat, I totally binged, and it felt great. Now I have to learn control. I have no control when it comes to food.
I have organized my containers for today, and am getting creative with meal planning.
I will do this.
I am tired of the girl in the video using the word booty.
Just say bottom already.
Anywhoo, I am off to make breakfast.
Wish me luck!
Last week it was breakfast and a movie.
Today it is the zoo.
We cannot go anywhere fancy, or take big vacations, but I hope they remember the little things we do together.
It is time for another adventure!
It is our first official day of summer vacation.
I slept in till 9.
My girls are waiting anxiously for us to leave for the movie theater to see Maleficent.
We have bought our contraband snacks, and a little something else to start our summer with.
You cannot start your summer without some dollar tree sunglasses.
If they break, who cares….
They were only one dollar.
Yep, I am financially savvy like that.
Today is the last day of school, and I am a little worried. For 9 months I have been free between the hours of 8-3 Monday thru Friday. It has been glorious! I go to the gym, run errands, buy groceries all by myself like all the other SAHM. Bonus for me is I get to get away and work every weekend. That is my adult time when I get to be an intelligent member of society.
Now my free time is gone for the next three months.
I am going to be home with my three girls, who are getting older, and for some reason have their own opinions.
Thank goodness we have made a few plans.
Last day of Second, Kindergarten, and Fifth grade.
Now to figure out how to keep them busy today till Mr. Kell gets home.
I forgot to buy wine.
My girls get out of school next week, and summer vacation will begin. I am no where near ready. Thank goodness for the internet where I can live in denial about getting my house clean, and do some online window shopping.
Here are a few of my “Start of Summer Wants”.
I am very tired. Physically and emotionally tired. April and May have been ridiculously busy, and I have been very close to losing my sanity. I would like to say that I am ready for summer, but I am not.
I cut all my hair off, and I love it. It will never be long again. I have already picked out a shorter cut for next time.
Your husband naps all the time? So does mine. I was folding laundry when this was taken.
Watching my kids play sports has been my only sanctuary. I love watching then compete.
I almost got one child out of elementary school without getting lice. Yep, I spent 8 hours straight on a Thursday washing, combing, and burning everything within an inch of its life. I was totally grossed out. This was taken the following Saturday. I still was not done sanitizing the house, so I called in sick and finished everything.
My pumpkin pie has become quite the little volleyball player. I am so proud of her.
Oh what a pumpkin pie she is.
This little bit here is why I will have to be medicated before school is out. We are still fighting over panties, and now we have added knit pants to the mix. She has definitely gotten a dose of mean and nasty Necole lately.
Have a happy Friday.
