Hi

Hello everyone!! Have you missed me? I've been taking a little breather....remember how I said earlier that I wanted to enjoy my time a little more and wanted to slow down? Well, I've been trying. What have I been up to? Playing, doing a few things that I enjoy, drinking wine, sitting on my patio. So far this summer we have celebrated Memorial Day at the lake. That was fun as always. The kids had the time of their life. The following week I had our annual Cinco De Mayer party. I use Mr. Mayer's birthday as an excuse. It started 9 years ago on his actual birthday (May 5th). Since then it has been moved to the first Saturday of June and really it's just a big ol' party. It is always fun. I "try" to keep our guest list to around 75. I have been known to go over that number :/ Anyway, I'm rambling. We partied. It was fantastic as always. We have been going to the zoo with friends, story time at the library, splash pad at a local park and playing in the backyard. I got Diva her very first library card. The kid is 5. I had never taken the time to take her to the library. Mom of the year over here! She was so proud of that card she showed it to everyone that she saw for a week. Last week I went away for the weekend with 5 of my best girlfriends. We went to Kansas City. We had a hot date with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw and their Brother's of the Sun concert. AH-MAZ-ING is all I have to say about that. It was really fantastic to get away with some girlfriends and not do a thing except lay by the pool.
We had a fantastic time. I think it should become a regular occurrence. Mr. Mayer stayed home with the brood~and had a good time himself. I think his Facebook status was "I'm pretty sure this whole staying home with the kids thing wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for the 5 year old asker of a million questions." It's true. So very true. I didn't know a person could ask so many questions. Sometimes I pretend I don't hear her. 

This week Diva is doing swim lessons in addition to her weekly gymnastics. I have a family reunion next weekend. Kill me now on that front. There are things in life I would prefer to avoid. Family reunions are one of those things. I mean. Really? Families still do this? Oh well. I guess I have to take the good with the bad. I asked Mr. Mayer if he could have another appendix out so that we didn't have to go. So far he's not cooperating.
So. Yeah. That's what's been up. You? Anything fun this summer?

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…
