Tonight I had to miss yoga.  I missed Zumba last night.  I was totally bummed about both.  Tonight took every good mom power I good summon to give up my yoga class and take Liberty to her school program about art.  I was kinda ticked off.  I pouted a bit.  What does this mean?? Do I enjoy these things that I used to loathe? I think I really do.  It feels good to be sore from stretching and working muscles that have laid dormant since the 80s.  I love it. What is it that has come over me?  Well, I am thankful for it.  I has probably saved my life.
Saturday morning at 8am I start the ATX100 running group over in South Austin.  It's my first visit and I am a little nervous.  But I think more excited than anything. After running the kids go away for a week to grandmas for spring break. 
I will be alone.  Harrison, my 15 year old asked me if I was going to be ok.  He seemed really concerned about me being sad and alone.  I thought he was worried I was going to be suicidal... He said, "I mean are you going to eat a lot while we are gone?"  He's worried I will emotionally eat out of lonelinessMy poor child.  Such a worrier... but with good reason.  I have similar concerns.  This will be a test.  Carbs call my name when I am alone.  I have to keep all bad stuff out of the house.  I am really excited to have no kids to worry about when I go to yoga and such.  I hope to burn some major calories next week.  I have 11.8 lbs to lose on the diet bet by March 28th.  I also will get an Easter dress from my mom if I make my goal.  Double motivation!!
So I am really doing this healthy lifestyle thing and even enjoying it... weird!!

I live when my kids are gone at the same time. I plan my week down to the minute with little wiggle room. I relax at the pool but make sure I exercise at least 15 minutes each hour while I am there. Plan your food out also. Don't give in to those temptations but plan one meal with friends and treat yourself! You are doing an amazing job on your journey and good luck! Let me know how your week goes.

I am so proud of you! The more you do it, the more you will enjoy exercising. It will become your release. It will no longer be done because you feel you "have to" instead you will "want to".

Keep it up!! :)
