Well, here goes...my first blog. I haven't ever done this before. Mr. Hubs has been keeping a blog for a long time. I've been hesitant b/c I still have no idea what I'm going to blog about. My life has taken a lot of different turns this past year. All the turns have led me here today, sitting on my couch writing a blog. I've been married for a little over 7 years. We have a 3 year old daughter who is a fireball of energy. Some days I'm not sure how I can possibly keep up with her. I had twin boys 3 weeks ago, so I'm a little sleep deprived. When we had our little Diva 3 years ago we knew we would have more kids. The running joke between us was Mr. Hubs wanted 2 and I wanted 3 kids. Saying that, 2 was going to be fine with me. I just liked to push his buttons. So, when Diva was 2 we decided it was time to have another one since we didn't want a huge age gap. Well, after months of trying, not having have regular cycles and tons of stress my doctor said that I had PCOS. As a result we decided to use medical intervention to start my cycle again. Almost immediately I was pregnant. We were so excited. Then our first appointment the doctor says "Oh, it's twins." You could of mopped the floor with me! It was a tough pregnancy physically for me in the respect that I had no energy, everything hurt and took extra energy and my belly was HUGE! The babies weighed 6.4 and 7.8 pounds. They were not small. During the coarse of my pregnancy Mr. Hubs and I decided that it would be best for the family if I stayed at home with the babies and not put them in daycare. EEEK! While the prospect is exciting, it's also daunting at the same time. Do I really have what it takes to be a stay at home Mommy? Do I know what I am doing? Needless to say I am still trying to find my footing. Life has certainly taken some turns I had never expected, but I am looking forward to seeing where this road takes me.
Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness. And it hurt so good. Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills. Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the stre
