Sooooo, I'm gonna need someone to find my lost mojo.  I know I had a good week of training, but a lot of it was me making myself get out... And I shoulda done SOMETHING today, but couldn't convince myself...

Luck is what you have left after you give 100 % - Langston Coleman
I was in the liquor store last night, and was thinking about what my son likes.  Remembered today was Easter.  I'd thought about Easter Baskets earlier, but the adult kids are a bit old for that.   But in the liquor store I thought what a great little gift for Easter.  Rounded up the stuff in the grocery store and liquor store, and prepared baskets for my daughter, and my son's 'family.'  Rum and red wine for my daughter and Whiskey and Tequila for son and his fiance,  As I was putting it all together with candy, Easter grass, and chocolate bunnies last night I remembered the cousin living with my son and his fiance - oops a quick run to the grocery store this morning yielded another couple of chocolate bunnies.  Put an extra in my daughter's too, she's been having a friend over.  Not sure if he's 'permanent' or casual, but there's a bunny for him if he shows up.  I[...]

Happy Easter BT!!!! 
I said Yes to the Dress yesterday:) We found a potential dress for my mom too.  Takes FIVE MONTHS to make my dress!!!  Pumpkin said WTH? It only takes 3 months to make a HOUSE.  I took my parents over to the venue for the wedding and they LOVE it :)  Going to be hard to wait until December! Oh yeah I am still sick

How bad do you want it?

*1-Leg Dead Lift - 2x12 reps each leg
*Body Weight Squats 2x12 reps
*Monster Walks (forward/backward/side-to side) 3x8 reps each, band/elastic strapped around the knees direction. Strap the band ABOVE your knees.
*Body Weight Pendulum Lunges 2x12 reps each leg.
*Russian twists with 5-10lb weights...3x30secs on choice rest
*Eccentric Calf Raises - 2x12 reps each leg.
*Standard plank (on knees) 2x30secs
*Other core stuff
*Push-ups (on knees) 2x12
---------------------------------------------------
Ouch ouch and more ouch. This was tough even though the legs were a little bit better warmed up after the walk/run. My body is still rejecting these kind of workouts but I can feel it gets a little bit easier each time. Not sure what I hate more, the 1-leg dead lifts or the pependulum lunges but I think the lunges win!
Funny is that I am more sore in my left calf than my right but more sore in my right quad than my left....maybe I am crooked....

Watching Timothy hunt for Easter eggs!
A peaceful day
Cleaned the room that Erica moved out of to prepare it for being a spare room
Evan fixed an AWESOME Easter dinner!
Gently reminded the boys to call their dad (he called them instead) without getting all upset over it (I'm not going to keep doing this--they need to own this)

Face Time interview tomorrow

Happy Easter!
Heading out on Sweet Mama for a longer ride after church.  Looks pretty windy out, that may be a factor.
Lola got dropped off at Carytown Bikes for a spring tune up and new seat installation. Should be ready next week.  Not more than 200-250 miles on her since I brought her home so the parts should all be in good shape.
I wanted to ride longer, but the wind was insane!  It kept changing directions from headwind to crosswind.  At times I was fighting to stay upright and felt like I was standing still.  Other than the wind it was a gorgeous day for a ride and pretty enjoyable.

Finding My Balance

Up an at 'em early today, feeling clear-headed, peaceful and grateful. Maybe the Friday episode was just the bottom I needed. Getting to the gym yesterday for a workout, even though it was nothing special, kinda snapped me back into who I know I really am - someone who does care about my health: physical, emotional, spiritual. I have my issues, and maybe I always will. Sometimes I stray from the good path - sometimes I stray waaaaay off track. But for today, I am happy to see the sun, to have my spin class to look forward to this morning, to have my beautiful family. Happy Sunday!
