Here we gooooooo!!!!

So now that things have semi-settled around here it's time to get serious again. Enough moping around the house feeling sorry for myself. Time to get moving again!

I had originally planned on starting back up yesterday but chose to enjoy a rare day off with my family. My boyfriend usually works Monday through Friday and then I work Saturday and Sunday so it is rare these days for us to actually get to spend a day together with no commitments. It was a nice lazy day.

Today is a new day. Day 1 to my new journey to health and fitness. I've decided to take part in a new challenge presented by SparkPeople called the Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge. It is a four week challenge so that will last me through the end of June. I've also decided to join a challenge presented by the group 30 Somethings With 100+ Pounds to Lose called the Biggest Loser Challenge that starts June 13th and goes for ten weeks.

The workout video provided for Day 1 in the Bootcamp Challenge was awesome!!! A 10-minute cardio kickboxing video that, to be honest, kicked my butt! Great workout though! Perfect for a quick cardio blast when you are pressed for time, or if you just can't make it (physically) through the long 30-60 minute cardio workouts yet (like me). I think I will end up doing this one often. You can find it on YouTube also! Just search "SparkPeople" and a wealth of exercise videos come up!

Back in the Saddle

Well, a TON has happened since my last post. Long story short, we moved suddenly. I also now work weekends at U-Haul and no longer run a daycare.

Today we are going to celebrate Elijah's 2nd birthday. His birthday is really tomorrow but I will be working all day so there won't be time to celebrate tomorrow. I am sad that noone is coming. I'm not even sure my mom is coming. Nobody came for his first birthday either. Makes me want to stop inviting people since nobody comes anyways.

Much more to talk about but I have to get going. Larabelle has a playdate at 10am with one of her new friends at her new school :)

To be continued . . .
