Ups and Downs

Yes, I've been MIA.

There is no excuse other than busyness and life.

I entered The Best of Flavilicious Workouts Challenge in August and its going pretty well.  I am learning that the biggest key in doing a challenge is the life challenges.  Work has really picked up and since school started I've been getting off at 3 to pick up my boys.  I love that I am getting more time with my kids but the extra time is usually spent fighting the boys on homework.  My oldest is learning that 3rd grade is no joke and homework is a nightly thing!  I'm working on a schedule right now that will hopefully help keep a focus on time and help us all be able to get done what we need to get done.

I love that the Flavilicious challenge tells you what your workout is going to be.  Having that already mapped out is a huge help.  I've put the entire schedule in my calendar so all I have to do is pull up my day and see what I am going to be doing.  Now if I could get a good after school schedule going I will be set!

Another awesome thing about this challenge is it also focuses on your eating.  I've always had a problem with food and with this challenge I am learning SO much!  Right now my main goal is having two servings of vegetables with every snack/meal.  It sounds so easy but its harder than what you think especially when you're only used to getting 1-2 servings of veggies per day.

The Best of Flavalicious Workouts Challenge has been my up lately.

Now my down....

I have my hysterectomy scheduled for October 4th which is right at the halfway point of the challenge so I probably won't be able to finish the fitness part of the challenge.  My plan is to really focus on my clean eats while I'm down and really start to build that habit.

Emotionally I am trying to handle things as best as possible but I'm not going to's hard.  I really did want another baby but I know that the Lord has a plan for me that gives me hope and a future and I take comfort in that.

I have a little over two weeks until the surgery so until then I am trying to push past the pain and do what I can do.  I know getting fitter will help my recovery time so I am trying to stay as focused as possible.  This weekend has been spent on the couch but I am about to try to fit in a workout and get myself up.

I will try not to make it too long next time.  I need a place to vent and this is a great place to keep me focused on what I need to be focused on. ;)
