Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Wow! What a weekend. It was full. Friday was a busy day in general. I took Shrek in for an eval on his feet. Poor dude is pigeon toed like his Mama. Unfortunately he drags one of his feet while his toes are pointing at his other leg. He and his brother Donkey are going to have to wear some elastics on their feet to turn them out. Some smart info that the specialist shared with me. Being pigeon toed and knock kneed like that can lead to arthritis and other foot problems. Wow! Good to know now that I'm 30 and have those problems. *Sigh* I'm assuming my mother's solution of making me wear my shoes on the wrong feet when I was little did not work.
Friday the Diva learned about Doctor's and made her own doctor bag. She spent an hour taking care of Mr. Mayer and I and bandaging us up.


After Mr. Mayer and I were mended Nana Karen and Papa Brad came over to watch Shrek and Donkey and Mr. Mayer and I took Diva to the Tulsa State Fair.

That is always an adventure. We met some friends there. We all ran our legs off. I let Diva eat a very healthy dinner....followed by cake balls and fried potatoes. I rock. The people watching at the fair is entertainment alone.

The next morning we were up and at em' again. We drove to Grove and FINALLY got around to taking the dudes 1 year pictures. I'm only a month late. Not bad in my book. It was a gorgeous day. One of my best friends lives there and was gracious enough to let us come out to her house and take some pics as well. We had a great time with the Lane's and their precious little Addie. Both of the dudes are smitten with Ms. Addie and liked to pull her hair. It was another long day.
By Sunday we were all grumpy. It was definitely a day of rest. We didn't do much of anything yesterday. Just hung out around the house. Shrek has learned how to climb up the stairs to the top of the swing set in the backyard so it makes playing outside a little more difficult. He thinks he is hot stuff though. Donkey has no interest in following behind his brother. Thank goodness!

Hurt So Good

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 strength …

That's Gonna Hurt

HEY Y'ALL!!!! It's me again!! hahahahaha....life has a way of zipping by, doesn't it? Life has been going by at warp speed around here. I'm still working. I only regret it twice a week :( I would by lying if I said I didn't miss being at home. I miss the day to day stuff, and I hate paying a babysitter. It breaks my heart when one of the kids tell me they miss me, or they wish I didn't work. However, the extra income is nice. Seeing Mr. Mayer not as stressed about finances is nice, and I feel like I am contributing.
My main reason for getting a job remains. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Considering my genetic makeup if that's all that I have, I'm okay with it. I was medicated for a long time. I stopped taking my medications two years ago and have been able to keep a handle on myself for a long time. However, I had a bad month in December. Besides the normal Christmas stress, my wheels were stolen, which added another…

Let Me Catch My Breathe....

Hey! Hey! Hey! My fitness tour is still going strong :) I am pretty confident I will be able to at least make it to vacation time doing free, or discounted classes around town. Then I can make my final decision on what I want to stick with. The last two weeks have taught me that my fitness level has gone way down....I am not as strong as I thought I was. Maybe gone down isn't the right word. Maybe, more like, I'm nuts and had a skewed perception of my fitness level....maybe I was never as fit as I thought I was??? All these classes are giving me a dose of reality.
This week I started off strong with CycleBar. Now. I LOVE spin classes. My friend, Jeff, started teaching spin a million years ago, and I took my first spin class with him in 2011. He has always been my favorite instructor and I compare every other class to him. Every one. So, on a scale of 1-Jeff how did I like Cycle Bar...I'll admit, it was at an 8 or 9. Maybe if the instructor and I were friends outside of cla…
