It's been a long time!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Well, it's been FOREVER since I posted (feeling guilty about even taking the time to post this LOL) but I've been taking some classes that have been eating up virtually all of the little time I have as a mom of two toddlers! It's been crazy trying to do everything while pretty much doing nothing because I am trying to take care of myself too (working out). My workouts have faded to weekends only pretty much as I've been trying to keep my kids away from the gym so they don't get sick, which is only partly working. ;) I guess you can never keep them 100% well. I can't miss my classes though. My house is falling apart and in a hurricane state, much more than it normally is (with toddlers!). I just can't get ahead and am struggling to stay above water!

I've really been missing lurking around here and doing my usual "fitness" browsing on the net, LOL. I've gained a few pounds back due to decreasing exercise frequency but hope to get back to that once classes end in late April. Been trying to enjoy the AZ weather on weekends for at least one hike. Need to get the peeps together again! (Yeah, that's you DEB and ANGEL!) :)

Otherwise, my kid had a first ever febrile seizure in the bathtub last week (OMG!) and then both my kids got croup this week and now one is throwing up all night. Good times! When it rains it pours, right? And today, after my blink and miss it workout, I am writing a 13 page evidence-based practice paper that I am very resentful about...I need to GET OUTSIDE!!! I def have SPRING FEVER! I wish my kids were old enough to hike, I'd have em out every day!

    I have a friend raising her grandchildren. She is very active and takes them on hikes all the time. Not sure how, the youngest has been going with her since under two.
    I don't know how some people do it.
    Hope the classes are going well and the kids are better.

    You are definitely a busy lady. Try giving yourself just 10 minutes to get some activity everyday. I know when I was going to school getting my exercise in helped my grades significantly. Enjoy those kiddos while they are little because in a blink of any eye they be asking for the car keys like my oldest is doing now (I have a 16 & 13 yr old). emoticon
