My last post I talked about how something just clicked and I am feeling on track.  I am feeling good about being on track.  I had to work yesterday afternoon and had to drop the kids off at school in the late morning.  And I realized that I was actually disappointed that I wouldnt have enough time to drop them off, drive down to the gym, get a workout in and then shower and get back to get the kids and go to work.  So I made the plan instead to get on the treadmill last night or do Jillians 30 day shred.  That was the plan until our littlest one came down suddenly with shaking chills and a high fever.  I put her in my bed and didnt leave her side after that.  She has a tendency to spike 105 fevers when she gets sick, so I watch and monitor her carefully.  Plus, she was bit by a deer tick over a week ago and has been on antibiotics since.  The dr does not think this is related.  I hope she is right.  

But today the hubs is home and I am going to get some exercise in.  I like feeling good about my choices.  I have enjoyed the gym this week, watching what I am eating and then feeling good about it at the end of the day.  It gives me a sense of pride I guess.  And it must because today for the first time I put my half marathon tech shirt that I got with my name on it.

Thank you to those of you who have been following my journey, and also to those who comment.  Your support and reassurance always seems to be perfect timing.  So, thank you.  I am finally feeling like I can do this again.  And that is priceless.

So glad you are doing well with the exercise. That is awesome. Sorry about your little one. I am praying!

Keep focused!

You know what? You didn't make excuses, you had reasons, and let's face it-sick family trumps exercise! Good for you for prioritizing so well! And let's just say, I just started Jillian's shred, and I only called her an evil bitch twice-so she is a keeper! ;-)
