Weekly CheckIn- 9/22

The last few weeks have just been crazy. With Joc starting back to school, taking care of gram, and Bella just about to enter the terrible 2s(let me tell you she is already there!) I am starting to feel like a chicken with my head chopped off running in all different directions. I know I should not be complaining because alot of you others out there work and take your kids to all sorts of activities and I have a great respect for all of you! Finding a balance between my family, blogging, and fitness has been a tough challenge for me these last few weeks.

My husbands step father got our girls some new bedroom furniture. Before my oldest daughter had a daybed and the youngest had her crib turned into a toddler bed. Now there room isn't quite that big and with all the furniture and toys it was just a nightmare. So he got the girls a bunk bed that has drawers underneath, a dresser, and a desk that has a huge hutch over it. It is really beautiful! Well you know who had to clean out the entire room? Any guesses? ME! I took everything out except the daybed because I couldn't get it apart. The bolts were in way too tight. The NEW furniture got moved in and the bed couldn't quite fit against the one wall because my hubby hasn't taken out the air conditioner yet so the bed was somewhat floating in the room, thus I was unable to put everything else back into their room...I couldn't take the rest of my house having clothes, toys and furniture everywhere! Wasn't that the point of the yard sale last month? to get rid of this stuff. Well, after enough complaining, well, not much maybe once a day I would remind JR to take the air out and put the bed back so I could get everything in order. He has been under alot of stress as well, so I have to tread lightly. Sunday he took the air out and put the bed back!! So everything is now back in order, for now anyway.

Sorry if I have been venting a bit, but it feels good to let it go...

 For the Shinkvivor Challenge I calculated that I needed to get in 81 oz. of water a day. I surpassed that everyday of the challenge! Total water intake 542 oz!

Total Miles: 18.05
Eating wise it could have been better...but
Over all my fitness routine that I have planned out is working well. Here is what I did last week:

  • 30 minutes Elliptical
  • 50 minutes Slim In 6- Ramp It Up
  • 30 minutes Elliptical
  • Moved EVERYTHING out of the girls room to make way for new bunk bed, dresser, & desk!
  • 30 minutes Elliptical
  • 50 minutes Slim In 6- Ramp It Up
  • 30 minutes Elliptical
  • 25 minutes Slim In 6- Start It Up
  • 2.5 miles Elliptical
  • Walked to the park with the girls 4.13 miles
  • Water- 108 oz.

  • 50 minutes Slim In 6- Ramp It Up
  • Water- 108 oz.
  • 3.02 miles Elliptical
  • #Tworkout

Some how I managed to get all of this in. This week has been even more of a struggle... I have been feeling like 'why even bother to do this' the last few days. I don't know why I have been feeling like this, but I have been pushing myself through it. If I don't want to get on my elliptical I keep telling myself that I have to do this for me and my family. One thing that I have been doing to keep me going on the elliptical is reading a book. If I'm not reading I keep and eye on the timer and time just seems to go nowhere. Reading on the other hand makes it fly by.

 Weight: 161

That's great! You are down another 1.8. I don't know how you do all those routines at home. I can't get it done. Too many kids interrupting.
