Gettin after it...

So my work schedule has been a bit crazy the last couple days since a girl decided to quit on us and we are all having to pick up the slack while training a new hire. My lunch breaks have been cut shorter by 30 minutes and I've had to stay an hour later than usual, too. This is exhausting to say the least, but I'm still getting after it as much as I possibly can while at work. I have been doing lots of jumping jacks and trying to see if I can outdo my highest number at one time going up by a few counts each day. Today I did a few times of 25 but the last time I did it was 40 all at once. I am also racing my kids around the play yard and they are enjoying chasing me or beating me back to the start. I try to encourage them to workout with me if they are just following me around whining about when it's time to go back inside and eat lunch instead of playing. lol. Sometimes it works...

I know today isn't a new weigh in day yet, but I was just so excited this morning to see that I dropped 2 more pounds, skipped right over 277 and jumped on down to 276 even. Whoooo! So I snapped a pic to share here. :D



After my last post I ended up going to the store like I said, but when I got home I spent some time with my own kids. I rode my bike, my son rode his scooter, and Bethany walked beside us a block down the road to the church. We rode all over the parking lot and then we went in to the playground area and I let the kids have at it. Shortly after, I decided they looked like they were having too much fun and I should join them and so I did. I crawled up to the top of the rock climbing area several times and slid down both slides as well as crawled through a tunnel. It felt great to be able to play with my children and not be totally out of breath. I snapped a few pics and had my son take some, too.

Forgive the quality as most of these pics were taken by my 8 year old son, Jett who has limited experience with taking pictures or using my phone. lol. He even took a video by mistake and you can hear me saying "I don't hear it clicking!" waiting for the sound of the camera capturing our picture. lol. Bethany wanted us to pose with peace signs in the air...
