• Last week I posted on Facebook that "some days I find it difficult to be myself more than others." The good thing is that everyone else is already taken up so I must be myself. How cool to find out this week that the new Theme for MOPS International for 2014/2015 is:

• The kids and I were very active this week but I purposely cut back on our extra activities. We had a death in the family and I have been dealing with some personal issues through Christian Counseling so I thought this was the week not to do anything extra and rest a bit. It turned out that I had some extra responsibilities at church, so good thing I wasn't trying to keep up with an extra busy schedule. The preschool years are demanding and I have learned that I get to control my schedule. I am refusing to overcommit and let my family and health suffer.

• I have learned that at this point of my life, working out 6 days a week can be exhausting. My minimum is 3 days a week and 5 days a week is the maximum amount of effort I can put into fitness. I believe I could put in 6 days a week before because I wasn't a mother and I didn't have the same demands. I decided that fitness is going to aid my daily life and not paralyze it. What I mean is that I won't exercise to the point of daily soreness because I have to care for 3 preschoolers. I believe in putting some effort into my fitness but I refuse to do it to the point of exhausting myself. My goal for fitness is to be a healthy wife and mother. I am happy that I can do that through Christ who gives me strength. This week I've been recalibrating my workouts. A few weeks ago I workout too much so for the past two weeks I am getting back to what I call a reasonable amount of workouts. This is a photo of my next to last workout of the week.
