I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 12, 9, & 5. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. However, this also makes for very busy parents. It has become a real challenge to make time for myself. Honestly it has started to feel impossible. I'm really trying to put into prospective the fact that I'm not the only one in this situation and that it is possible to fit in things that matter like your health and exercise. ...

It's not that you can't....it's how can you? Its a challenge I've started with myself called 1 Good Thing. What 1 Good Thing have you done for yourself today?

Yes, summer is crazy, but like you said, I am just trying to enjoy it because it goes by so fast. Teachers go back a week before the kids ( I think around 8/17?) and our kids come back on 8/24. I have a few more trainings before then, and sometimes my team likes to meet for a day before we are officially back. I kind of understand the feeling of "It's almost over" because of those days, but I try not to think about it and savor the moments I have with my kids.
It sounds like you had a good weekend, and the race sounds like it was fun. I should totally sign my oldest up to race with me. He is 14. He isn't competitive, and it would be nice to have someone to run with. I KNOW he can outrun me emoticon and that is ok.
My weight is up more from before vacation. I was at 125 I think and today it was at 127. SIGH. I really tried last week, until Thursday I just felt totally derailed. And yesterday I did awesome but my husband asked if I wanted to pick up a chocolate shake from Sonic on my way home from a scout meeting and of course I caved. Zero willpower. I have tried talking to him about it but he doesn't listen and doesn't think it is a big deal. He can say no, but me, like an addict, can't be around it or else I will devour it. I wonder if there is a 12 step program for sugar-holics.
I have been sleeping later and later and I told myself tomorrow, since I have to go to a work meeting, I will start setting my alarm again. At least get up at 6 from now on.
I did walk on the treadmill today. Maybe we will go for another walk this evening. The temp here is still on the 90's in the evening, which we are used to, but it has been the mosquitos. They are so very bad. My little guy LOVES to be outside but he gets bitten a lot even if we spray ourselves down so we have been limiting the time outside. Also got the pool chemicals in and cleaned today so maybe by tomorrow we can start going for a swim in the evenings again!

Hey there! Sorry I have been MIA somewhat the past few days. I have had a crazy schedule and so much going on. I barely got to even log in a few days, but wanted to make sure to not break my streak!
I haven't gotten any exercise in the past few days either because of the insanity, but hope that today I will be able to. Tomorrow I have a teacher workshop, so I won't be able to get in a workout during the day, but maybe in the evening I can at least go for a walk.
How are you?

Hey, thanks for checking in on me. Work has gotten a bit busier, so my time online is a little more sporatic. I do most my sparking at work since by the time I get home the last thing I want to do is sit in front of the computer again. haha

Hoping we all have a great week ahead!

PS. Thank you for my holly leaf! :) totally made my day!

How was your race?
So I was up a pound from the trip, but it is ok. I went to the store when we got back and loaded up on fruit and veggies to have as snacks around here. I could not remember the brand of that dressing you mentioned but I am putting it on the shopping list so I can have it for the next trip after I saw it in your post in the group. This week should be fairly calm for me, thank goodness. A regular schedule is much welcomed.
Any plans for the 4th?

Hey Lady! Sorry I've been MIA so much. Between work being crazy and my not logging food as much as I should I've been , sooooo ya know I've been avoiding lol. Super excited to hear about the Montana Mucker. Looks like you had a big smile on your face.
As for my lab results, right now they have me on a weekly Vitamin D pill, I have to forgo Plasma donations for the time being and go back in 3 months to take more blood. The plasma thing kinda irked me, but it was my own fault. I thought I'd have to fast and then go in and do my blood work but they did it right then and there and I'd just given plasma the night before. I though about continuing it until my next lab but decided that 3 months is not that long and I can wait. Still tired, but it's getting easier to wake up, so we'll see.
