I've learned it is possible to Schedule Crazy. My DH complains about is constantly but as long as its what the girls want to do and their grades and sleep do not suffer then I can tolerate crazy for a few months out of the year when play practice overlaps travel soccer and swim team. But...I do not have a life other than being the shuttle driver right now and that sucks. My 13 yo got a stern talking with mom in tears about how I don't deserve for her to treat me like dirt when I sacrifice all of my time to make sure her and her siblings are doing what they love to do. It did earn me an overdue apology and she has mostly behaved better this past week. I frequently tell my mom I don't know how she survived 3 teen girls. There are days I think I'm not going to make it and its just starting!
I am super happy for you about your steps streak....I forget to wear my tracker after I charge it so then I screw up a streak. Also the one challenge I'm doing is all about active minutes and even if I get 10,000 steps I can have 0 active minutes which totally sucks!
I'm working hard to eat clean and that comes and goes with how many breve coffees I drink in a week. I caved to one today b/c I didn't get breakfast (bad bad bad) but I'm sticking to only 1 this week. I've got to eat real food to fuel especially if I ever decide to get out of bed and do a workout of any kind. I figure eventually it will happen. Muscle looks so much better than flab regardless of your actual weight! So summer clothes are being worn today and I wish I'd started strength months ago, lol. Maybe I can be more toned by our Silverwood trip at the end of July if I start NOW!
Hope you get a chance to spark a little more...I'm trying to work a little more...I feel like a SP addict! 53 days ago
You seem to be quieter on Spark lately....it was that fact that actually reminded me that I have a "real" life too and I do have a job to do here. And its easy to get on here for a quick check and then lose an hour. Especially if you read any articles or anything. But if I'm not getting my work done then I feel like I should skip my lunch and if I skip my lunch then I'm not walking on my lunch and THAT is not good for me!
I think its great that your daughter is doing the Ice Breaker with you! I love when my kids want to do races with me. I feel like I'm passing down something positive that way. I've never personally done the Ice Breaker but I have a good friend (my walking partner and former running partner) who has done it several times with her mom who lives in Sun River. I would love to come up and do a race and meet you sometime...I just really need to get my running game going. I'm really struggling with my asthma and this most recent cold really hasn't helped matters. I thought I was getting better but my lungs have been burning all day. Suck.
We did do a long walk at lunch so my steps are at 9416 and its only 5! Hooray - finally will make 10,000 steps today.
