I am amazed at how much my energy level falls just from Monday to Tuesday.  I can only imagine what I will feel like by Friday of this week! 

I think this week seems extra long because our last two weeks have only been four days, due to Fall Break.  And also because I know I will be at school until 6:00p tomorrow night and 8:00p on Thursday night.

I really wanted to leave by 4:00p today, knowing I would be there late on Wednesday and Thursday.  I usually go in early because I would much rather work in the am, rather than stay after school. I usually get to school around 6:50 or 7:00 each morning ~ and that is when I get the majority of my work done.  After school I take a break (hopefully a workout is included in said break), and then I will continue schoolwork in the evening.  Ehh…

When I got home today I took Lillian for a walk because the weather is amazing.  I discovered this during our extra recess this afternoon – and decided right then that I must take Lil for a walk today.  And Lilly made it an entire mile, so I am very proud of her, because usually she does not!

^ Beautiful Fall


^ Excited Lil ~ Ready to walk / ^ Sad Lil ~ Ready to be home

Notice the tail in picture 1 vs. picture 2 – Poor Lilly

After walking Lil, I came home for a quick 20 minute power nap and then hopped back on here for BB tasks.  I also took advantage of this Groupon:


I have been waiting for one for Holiday Cards!!  I am excited to check out the website – I have never used Picaboo before.

I am getting ready to order a Challenge Pack from BB.  It is a great deal because I have been wanting to try TurboFire and Ben wants to start his own Shakeology ~ Perfect opportunity.  Except that BB is very backed up today because of these Challenge Packs so it is going so slow.

And then…

I am going to do some sort of workout tonight, even though I am not feeling it 100% right now.  I am thinking I might need something like TJ – Cardio Party 3 to pump me up.  I need extra motivation today!  ~ But I am not taking these tennies off until after I workout, so I better get going with it.  I know I am going to feel a million times better when it is over!  I am already dressed in my workout gear, and usually that is the hardest part.

Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica…

Speaking of tennies, I am loving these Brooks Trance 10 – Thanks KT!


^ Love this workout!

I am going to start keeping track of food / workouts in this notebook, like I used to.  At least until I can get back on track & back to regularly scheduled workouts and gym trips.  Since the wedding, I have really been slacking, but finally starting to get back to it – Slowly but Surely.

Ok ~ Time for a Cardio Party.  Plus some push-ups.  Push-ups rock.  If I have time for nothing else and no other workout, I at least find time for push-ups.  They work arms & core.  I love them ~ Thanks to Tony Horton.

Have you worked out yet today?

^ I love this quote ~ It reminds me of Shakeology!
