Getting into a Schedule

Have you ever tried to get into a schedule? It initially sucks, doesn't it? Right now Phoebe needs to be at school for 9am on Monday and Tuesday. I need to start going to the gym A LOT. So I decided that everyday we should be out of the house by 8:45 latest. Doesn't sound like a big deal do it? Well, it is!!

I don't know about anyone else, but my kids eat soo slowly!! It actually freaks me out knowing that at school Phoebe only has 15minutes to eat lunch! It seriously takes her longer than that to pee because she just sits there. In the mornings I've been lucky that both kids manage to get up by 7:30 or 8am. They used to sleep til 9:oo easy but now we also have a bed time routine... we used to fake one... lol!!

So now, we get up, try to eat and get dressed, brush teeth, fix hair and get in the car on time to get Phoebe to school. Then I get to go to the gym with Payton... she loves loves loves it! It's got toys and kids and plenty of room for her to play. Mommy loves it because she's in competition with Daddy to get in shape. It's to help keep us both motivated. So far, it's working well :o)

Anyway, now I am exhausted and need to go to bed!

By the way... we have a new sink and my bathroom is almost done! Yeah!! I will try to finish up the molding and chair rail and post pics for anyone who is interested. This week my focus is to finish painting the walls in the living room because my new sectional is being delivered on Saturday. I am VERY excited!!

OK, that's it. I have to drop Phoebe off, run to the store, then run to the gym where I will be meeting with a personal trainer. Yes, I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist and a certified athletic trainer, so I shouldn't need his help, but there's a big difference between creating a kick ass program for someone else and one for yourself... I know what exercises I don't like to do!! lmao! Hey I've always known "how to get in shape" but it's the doing it that makes all the difference. THEN I get to meet EL and LH with the kids at the zoo for a mommy walk. Man, if I make it through the morning I will be very excited... I'll let you know!
