Sleepovers

Gosh…I have been on an Olivia roll lately. She's my oldest. We are having a lot of growing up happening around here lately.

She has been doing really well in school this week. After school today we met two of her friends, their Mama's and sisters (6 little girls!) and went and saw Beauty and the Beast in 3D. It was very exciting. Belle is Olivia's very favorite princess. She can recite the movie word for word and sing all the songs. Between it being her favorite movie and getting to eat popcorn and candy and share a drink with me she was in Heaven. At the end of the movie when the Beast fights Gaston all three of those girls were standing up talking to the screen and clapping. It was my favorite part of the entire movie.

After the movie Olivia went home with one of her friends for a sleepover. This is a very big deal. She has never stayed the night with anyone who wasn't related to her before. This was her first sleepover with a  friend. I have been so nervous. Is she having fun? Is she behaving? Is she being nice and not bossing her friends around? Is she going to sleep tonight? During the summer we tried to let her and her cousin Izzy sleep together on an air mattress one weekend at the lake. The girls NEVER went to sleep. They giggled and played for 2 hours until we finally had to separate them. I'm worried :/ Her friends mom has humored my neurosis and answered all my texts. She has even sent a couple of pictures. Those girls are having the best time. Olivia may never want to come home! I can't wait to talk to her tomorrow and have her tell me all about it.

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…
