The Juggling Act

So I am not really sure where to start!  It is so hard to juggle everything.  In one regard I am so proud of myself!  My business has been hitting new records and this week I will teach over 70 students?  I didn't even teach that many people in my first year!  I am amazed and feeling so blessed that it is going so well.  However, I have been working so much this week that it is so hard to make it to the gym.  I am super sad.  Thursdays are my normal day to always go in the morning, and at the last minute someone scheduled a class Thursday morning.  You're probably thinking that I can just go tomorrow night but I can't.  I have another CPR class at 6PM. So now you say well go in between, right?  Childcare is from 8-12 and 4-10...I can't really do it if there is no childcare.  Maybe tomorrow at 3 I could go, Trav gets off work early.

I am going to incorporate a new type of workout called the HIIT workout.  It is a cardio High Intensity Interval Training session.  They are 30 minutes and it will go like this Sprint uphill for 20-30 seconds and then walk for 1 minute...repeat.  I can do this at home on my treadmill and can't really make excuses to not do it.  It is proven to be one of the best cardio workouts.  I'll blog about it, specifically soon.

For now, I've gotta go to bed.  I left the house at 7:30 am this morning and didn't get home till 8PM.  I had CPR, dental appt, a church meeting, etc.  It was a crazy day.  I am exhausted.  Nighty night.

Starting Week 3

OK, so week 2 did not go as planned at all!  I only lost 1 pound and I didn't get to participate in my half marathon.  My procrastination totally messed me up and when I went to register, the registration was full and closed.  I was super bummed, however I will be doing one in September now.  I am a little relieved cause I hadn't trained quite like I should have.  I know I could have completed it but my time probably wouldn't have been very great.

This week I am back at it, especially with diet!  I am really watching what I eat and trying to eat clean.  I have been enjoying steel cut oats with fresh strawberries in it for breakfast.  So yummy.

This week is VERY, VERY busy.  I have CPR every day.  Looking forward to a record week this week and hopefully another record month in May!  It is hard to juggle though.  We have preschool, activities, gym, CPR, karate lessons, etc.  I will have to be very careful to make sure to make time for working out.

Tonight is the season finale of the Biggest Loser.  I hate all of the finalists, so I am not that excited but it will still be inspiring to see all of the past contestants.  Well, here is hoping for a better week 3!
