I did it

I woke up this morning and exercised. YEAH me. I was virtually wide awake and just laying in bed anyway. That's when I know I should get up. So I did my Turbo Jam this morning. I need to move on to the next video in the series though because I keep doing the same two and I think I've finally mastered them. They get my going and I'll love to come back to them but I need to change it up a little now.

I did not get to run last night. I was busy making Valentine's for the kids daycare yesterday. Took me longer and didn't turn out "quite" as I expected but I've learned the best way to melt chocolate and that I need more than one mold if I want to make a lot. LOL! But they are done. Shoot the kids aren't even going to be at the Valentine's parties since we are leaving Friday to go camping. Oh well. At least they will have stuff there to hand out. I wouldn't care if they didn't get anything because they really DO NOT need anything!!!

I so wanted to just say the heck with it with cooking dinner last night but I did and it was quick and easy and it felt so good to eat at home! It was so much better than our eating out last Friday. YUCK!!! Tonight is a little more complex. It's the King Ranch Chicken Casserole. I'll make it as soon as I get home while the kids are eating and then put it in the oven while we get the kids bathed and ready for bed. Then we can eat afterwards (like normal). I know I know. It was just so much easier in the past to get the kids fed and THEN decided what we are going to do. I'm hoping to change that by the summer time. Now that the girls are getting older they can eat pretty much anything. But with dh's schedule changing we'll have to adjust and get used to it. So this practice will change and evolve as the weeks and months go by.

Good job girlfriend!! Way to get out of bed and get 'er done!! I have not been getting my exercise in lately, and I know I MUST do that if I'm going to see results. I've resolved to get up at 5:30 to exercise...since it's getting lighter in the mornings earlier now, I think I should be okay!! Wish me luck...tomorrow is my first day! :)
