I have bloggers block tonight. I feel like I have a million things I want to share, but just can't seem to put it together. Ugh, I hate this. Diva was at my Aunt Kathy's house for the past "4 sleeps." I went to my parents house yesterday with the Dudes to pick her up. I missed my little noise maker. The trip started off well enough. It's a 3-4 hour minimum trip down to my parents. Depending on how many stops and how much traffic there is. Yesterday we made it in 3 hours 20 minutes. Whoo!! The Dudes were great on the trip. Perfectly happy to watch a movie and sit in their seats. We get to my parents sometime after lunch and the boys play and wrestle with their Papa for the remainder of the afternoon. Now....they haven't had a nap. That was my plan. I purposely didn't make them nap last time we were there a few weeks ago in the hopes they would sleep well during the night. Around dinner time the guys start getting cranky. Diva comes over with Aunt Kathy and Diva's cousin FM. The noise level ratchets up considerably. The Dudes play, run, jump and have a good time. After everyone leaves I make Diva and the boys get their Jammie's on and go to bed. The kids are sharing a room with me. Diva is sleeping with me. Those are two things I try to avoid all the time. Diva is a human tornado. I woke up 4 times last night with her feet in my face. The boys are loud sleepers. I sit in the room after they go to bed so that when Carter tries to get up I can make him lay back down and hopefully he will go to sleep soon. BAHAHAHAHA....kid had other plans last night. He and Owen both proceeded to act like fools for over an hour last night. With me sitting right next to them. At some point in their shenanigans Owen accidentally stayed still to long.
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
