I Can Still Hear You

The Dudes and I were having lunch together today. I was hangry and not in the mood for silliness. Of course that is when they want to be at their silliest. #2 looks and smiles at me sweetly and says "Hey Mom! You want to see a trick we can do?" I responded with a no, not really. I want to eat. I am hangry and want to be left alone. Unsatisfied with my response #3 says "Watch this!" Now- let me give you a brief set up of my kitchen table. It's a rectangle table. We have 4 chairs and a bench. The Dudes were sitting on a bench. Also, let me remind everyone that #2 is my accident prone child. He has already had stitches twice (once from falling off a toilet) and a concussion. He is covered in bruises and cuts 100% of the time. Like his Mama walking is challenging for him. As #3 is finishing his "Hey, hold my beer and watch this" sentence he's on his knees and bends and lays his head on the bench. #2 stands up and stands on #3's back. He is about to let go of the table when I intervene. I mean- c'mon!! I tell the boys that isn't safe and he needs to get off his brother's back. He does. Then asks why and tells me he will hold onto the table. Oy. I again explain it's not safe. #3 looks at me then leans over to his brother and "whispers" (cause we all know it isn't a whisper. It's slightly softer than a jet engine) in his ear "We'll do it upstairs after we eat our lunch." #2 agrees. #3 again whispers and says "Don't tell Mom." #2 smiles at me and sweetly says "We won't do it upstairs after we eat our lunch." #3 starts shaking his head no and then instructs his brother to eat faster. They quickly disappear upstairs. They think they are so sneaky.

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…
