Hi friends! Here we go, let's get this started! Remember you don't have to participate in every area, just the one(s) that you want to focus on! Share your awesome strides this week, how you've been unstoppable in maintaining, or you're stuck in a bowl of lime jello and it's been a tough week. But through sharing we can encourage and support each other! Or you can just give an encouraging comment too.
would could be changed to an A. We will not even get started on the Ge0l0gy course that ruined my GPA, my only C+, I'm not bitter. I'm not. sigh. But I should be spending just as much time worrying about my failing grade here. This week I will start to read again. Not sure what yet.
How did you do this week? Here's how I did:
Reading The BibleI Fail. Oh that is tough. I hate failing. First, it's God's word and I'm supposed to read it. Boo for me. I pray throughout the day especially with the little ones thanking God for everything that He does for us, but... it's no sit down, be quiet, and read His word time. Second, I liked school. I said it. I enjoyed learning. Not the drama of cool and not cool (still can't stand that!) but I could also organize a notebook like nobody's business and I loved it. In high school and college, in most cases, if I got an A- (or below), I had to know why (if it wasn't obvious), and most likely talk to the teacher or professor about how that
Eating WellOh I'm doing so much better again! No more excuses of eating what I want because my body needed it for the pregnancy=) Darn! But we do have desserts, and for now that won't change. Something bad might happen. I don't want my non-sweet-eating self to come out on my family. See it's for their sakes. I'm just too thoughtful. The exercising is so the desserting can still occur. But I do need to turn the munching into more healthy munching. We're trying to eat in as much as possible, for budget's sake (hrmph =)) and our belly's (and booty's, oh the booty) sake. Super easy and you can get all on sale!: Rotissserie chicken, bag of salad, bag of easy steam veggies (like pop it in the microwave in the bag and done!). Cut chicken, steam veggies, pour lettuce and instasalad. And it tastes good because the chickens are well seasoned. And you can only slightly ruin it with light Ranch=) I know there are healthier dressings. But I have to be in the-healthy-dressing mood. ha.
ExercisingYay for me! We've been walking everyday for the past week. Sometimes even twice a day. And tennis most days too! We walk to the courts, play, and walk home. I love walking as a fam because as the little ones are strolling we all just chat and talk about anything and everything - and listen to BabyBoy sing and talk. Love it. I've lost a couple pounds in the past week! Now, I need to keep it up so they keep coming off!
