Yesterday came and went quickly.
Squeezed so much into the day.
Began the day with a Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X workout from P90X.  Day 1 of block 3...the end is approaching.
We are working our way down to our final day of school by finishing off one subject a day this week, so that the boys aren't taking all of their final tests on the same day.  Monday was language.  The boys were more than eager to get that subject out of the way.  They do well in language, but they are both bored with the monotony of diagramming sentences and part of speech.  They are forgiven for being bored with my favorite subject. ♥
Helped out in the office for a little while and also had a wonderful conversation with my coach and friend about coaching stuff...and life.
Once we got home, the boys and I actually sat down and watched some TV together.  We don't do this very often in the afternoons.  But, today, we watched some classics...Emergency and a little bit of CHiPs.  It's what one does when we're caught up on the latest Middle episode on Hulu and there is no cable in the house.
Once Scott came home, we went down and got in some fishing.  The bream were biting pretty well. Tons of fun together, grilling out and catching (and releasing) fish.
As everyone settled down for the night, I set out to get some work accomplished on my Beachbody websites.  It was great having quiet time to get them personalized.  If you're curious as to what Beachbody is, feel free to browse around my page...
Time is a wonderful thing.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
