Happy Belated Mother's Day

I'm a day late but to all the mothers out there...A very happy Mother's Day to you all!  My Mother's Day was great!  I got to sleep in, both on Saturday and Sunday.  I didn't have to cook at all and received beautiful red roses and cards from my girls. Weekend was busy.  We went to a barbecue on Saturday where I ate way too much.  The girls had a birthday party to go to after that.  Sunday was more laid back.  We watched movies, went to see my mom, ate lunch at Outback where I had their crab cakes...not too shabby.  All in all, it was a great weekend but went by way too quickly.  Really didn't want to see it end.

Today is Weigh In Day.  173.5.  That's -1.5 from last week and 1 lb down from my lowest.  Not bad considering very little effort went into last week.  This week is different though.  I packed my gym bag this morning and have EVERY intention of hitting the gym after work.  I haven't been in about a month which is completely and totally unacceptable.  I've chosen my new challenge...the Mud Run in September so I better get crackin'.  Seeing as the Mud Runs and obstacle runs use more upper body strength than anything I've previously done, my new routine is going to be 1/2 hour on the treadmill going as fast as I can possibly go.  Then a 1/2 hour doing weight training.  I'm also going to try to get back in a good Zumba place.  I haven't been there in over a month either.  I don't see Zumba in my immediate future as I can only go on Saturdays and the next few will be busy packing and what not but hopefully it will make a re-appearance in June.  I'm looking at 3 days a week at the gym.  Not too lofty of a goal but it's a good ease-in back to working out regularly.  Hopefully the scale will reflect the work.  You'll notice I'm only 3 lbs away from my Birthday Goal and I intend to hit it. exercise regimen starts today.  I'll let you know how it goes and if I fall off the treadmill or anything.

We put in an application on a townhouse over the weekend.  Obviously, it's not ideal as a house would probably be better but it's ubercute and kind of quirky, kind of like my family itself.  The location is absolutely perfect and I think it'll suit our needs just fine.  Please send quick approval thoughts our way as our lease is up at the end of the month and I'm tired of stressing about it.
