I'm sorry MrsW. I hope things calm down for your family.
Wil has soccer pictures and then a soccer game in the morning. DH and I have football tix but our sitter is busy. So we may have to skip; I'm not heartbroken. The FB team stinks and it's an all day event when we go.
Sunday is Church and getting ready for the week again!
Ava has used both "like" which drives DH nuts and "umm" which drives me nuts. We tell her to stop, think and collect her thoughts. She really has gotten much better about it.
And KC, Wil does something similar to what your Coco does. I also equate it to him being 4yo with a 6yo sister that is constantly talking about something. I think he feels left out at times and just begins some random going nowhere sentence to make sure we all know he's still there.View Thread
That's awesome! I need to order those for Ava. Luckily I have a book order sitting on my desk.
Ava is doing so well with her reading as well. She is paired with the top 2 readers from last year in this year's reading group. And she is taking an accelerated reader test next week! I tried to blow it off and act like it's not a big deal. But my heart swells in secret. I'm a reader and I feel like enjoying and being a good reader and comprehender opens so many doors in school with studying, learning, etc.View Thread
As you're doing the workout more, I think you should be able to 'use your core' as they say in the dvds. Try to focus on your stomach and lower abdomen as you're working out for now and eventually I think you'll gain control of it.
My longer runs cause my body to shift to my core as my legs get tired so my core is pretty strong and I can focus on using it more in the workouts. But it takes time.
The jumping gets me too. I did the Pure Cardio one last night and while I love it, it was tough as usual!
Don't look at the scale anymore than you have to. Gage your succcess based on how your clothes are fitting/feeling. The scale, IMO, is not a women's friend. We have too many things going on in our bodies. If you are dieting and working out like you should, you'll see it pay off!
Great job and good luck!
"You can freaking do it!" Isn't that one of Shawn T's phrases? "Come on ya'll!!!" "Dig deep!" View Thread
I do the Insanity workout. I'm now in week 3 of my first month for the 2nd time. I did the 1st month 2x in a row last year before our vacation and ended up going back to just running after vacation. Now I've picked it up again because it's a great workout in my house. I was doing the 30 Day Shred before that.
Insanity is exactly that, INSANE. But I like that while it's an intense pace, it's all moves anyone can do. I don't like P90x that much because the pace is soooo slow. I like to move fast and get it done. While the Insanity sux, most of the workouts are 40 mins and the warm up is about 15 mins. So by the time you are 'warmed up', it's nearly half over!
GL! If you stick with it and monitor your diet, you'll see serious results.View Thread
Sunday: New cheesy yummy chicken pasta dish (Ava and Wil did not enjoy it) for DH, Mia and myself. Baked chicken, whole wheat pasta for Ava and Wil. Steamed cauliflower and baked apples for everyone else. Monday: Sunday's leftovers. Tuesday: Pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches via the crockpot. Steamed broccoli and Alton Brown's mac and cheese. Wednesday: Tuesday's leftovers. Thursday: Beef roast with potatoes and carrots in crockpot. Friday: Yes, once again Thursday leftovers!
I love when I get a 2nd night out of meals. View Thread
