Monday turn around

     So far Monday has left me a little unorganized.  My alarm didn’t go off this morning and I was planning a 10 miler with my Boston bound buddies!  I hate it when that happens and I stare at my clothes all laid out that didn’t get RUNNED in!  Then, it’s off to the races with getting kids ready for school, one home sick, and the window installers showing up at 8:15 a.m. and I didn’t even know they were coming.  Hmm…  I wanted to eat a whole plate of sugar cookies by this point and start being FIT tomorrow!  I’m good, I didn’t do that.
     I will get out sometime today for a run and weight workout.  I’m starting WEEK 8 of Jamie Eason’s Live Fit program.  It looks like I’ll be doing a lot of bi’s, tri’s, and abs.  I might throw in a little back and rear delts too since I missed that workout on Saturday.  Sometimes I need some slack when people think I workout too much!  I analyzed my daily life and I get a H*%@ of a lot done in a day.  My proudest claim to fame is that I don’t watch a stitch of t.v.  I’m sure most of the world watch at least an hour a day.  I’d rather use that hour to exercise.  Better for me (: That’s what I love!
     I also love making FOOD!  We had our good friends over for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner.  If I was a foodie blogger I would have taken more pics.  It was yummy!!!  I made Honey Lime Green Chile Enchiladas, mexican rice, fresh black bean salsa, and a couple GREEN desserts, Oreo mint fudge ice cream and shamrock sugar cookies!  I ate a little more than I should have from about 3:00-7:30 p.m.  But that was all for the whole week!  Here we are with our girls!
MOTIVATION part of the day is this AB workout I found on bodybuilding.com.  Get your abs on for summer!  I’ll be doing this 3 times this week for fun (:
