A new day - the journey continues.......

Well, Spring Break is over - the rain has finally stopped - the sun is shinning - heck, it is supposed to be 80 degrees here by Friday - guess the weather lady was right - skip right from Winter, over Spring and Summer here we come. I knew that Spring Break was over when I finally got a chance to look at my sons backpack for the first time two days ago (it had been with his father for the last 14 days). Well, in that backpack was a stack of Must Do work and Extra Credit work pages. We spent time on Sunday just trying to get a few pages done - family birthday celebration took up most of our Sunday, and well, it is hard to get a 10 year old to do all that work in such a short period of time. We will spend the next two nights trying to get the rest of it done. Yep - a new day - the journey continues.......

Not only is Spring Break over for the kids, but Spring Break is over for this Lady!!! I am glad to get back to the school routine. I missed it. I goofed off for the last 2 weeks. I slipped a few times, didn't really stay on track as well as I wanted. The scale showed me that, but I am not discouraged. I am not getting down on myself, but it would have been nice to have made some progress. What - what am I saying - I did make some progress. I am working out!! I have been getting up on a consistent basis and getting in my workouts. That is progress for me!! I am trying new workouts, still avoiding the soda, the fast food, the seconds and thirds at meal time and so much more. Yes, I had a second piece of birthday cake last night and the scale showed that this morning, but I am still motivated, I am getting healthy!! Even if I didn't like the number that flashed at me this morning I do feel good in my clothes and looking foward to what awaits me just around the corner!!

Yes, Spring Break is over  - lunches got made, both of us had a great nourished and balanced breakfast - I didn't feel rushed - I even read my paper from cover to cover (not a very big city paper, just enough news to catch up with the world)....

Oh - and for those of you that have been keeping up with my Lasik Surgery updates - I got good news last week. My eyes are healing nicely. The dry eye issue is getting better. It has been recommended that I do go in for a little "touch up" lasik soon. My doctor even called to set me up for a 30 day regiment on eye drops, but Day Camp duties are going to keep me busy, so hoping that June 24th will be the day. Keeping fingers crossed on that home front.

Things are going well. I feel empowered by getting "me" back !!! It has been a long journey, more of it to come and I look forward to how I am changing in such a good way!!! Can't believe that I waited so long, glad that my mind, soul and body are finally on the same path (together)!! Glad that I have tons of support!!! Glad that I am sharing, learning, taking this blog and so much more journey!!! 2011 is going to be a year of successes in more ways then I can count!!! Wishing everyone a wonderful week!!!!!!!!!!!

Staying MOtivated

Wow, you get a two week spring break? That IS dangerous! ;-) Glad your eyes are healing up nicely.

Clarification - my 2 week Spring Break was from fulltime motherhood as my sons school schedule was interupted & shared custody. I just have to remember to stay completely on track when we aren't on the same schedule - avoid the "danger zone".......MO

What an upbeat, happy post! The congruency of mind, soul and body is a great place to be and obviously empowering. You're doing great. And that's good news about your eyes, too. Reading your posts makes getting fit sound fun!
