Krav Maga

4 Apr

My cousin Sacha is “Ms. Krav Maga” in my opinion. She’s super fit and strong and that is very motivating. So, I got to go to her studio Krav Maga DC with her and tried it out. Check it out below (hilarious):

 

 

Have any of you tried it?

Summer is Here

23 May

Summertime is here! Well, the summer solstice isn’t until June however all three boys are officially out of school today! The 5-year-old finished last week (he was in Mother’s morning Out 4-year-old class) so he’s been home. I am now counting down the minutes until it arrives with awful great expectations. I am excited that we don’t have to engage in the daily early morning “wake up get ready” yelling discussions ( I engage in – they ignore). We can sleep in, especially since they are taking a season off from swim team (first time in a while). I am feeling ready, confident that we will have a good summer.

I think…

I hope..

I Pray…

O.K. I know I am supposed to cherish these boys, love the fact they will be home everyday, all day, with me, did I mention all day.

I recognize that I have a limited amount of time with them and every homeschooling friend I have will pop me upside the head for feeling differently BUT I have to tell you my patience is running thin (notice they have yet to have one summer day here and already I feel this way)! This summer Insanity Sanity will be had by all.

A 12-year-old, 10-year-old and 5-year-old boy will not defeat me. If they do, hubby can handle it. Who am I kidding?! We’re going down, but not without my plan. I have plans!!!  Chores will be done,  lots of time will be spent outside (by them not me) and at the pool and you better believe a good VBS camp will be found! I’ll be at the gym DAILY! A few trips here and there to go on and all will be well. That should wear them OUT!

Phew! OK, that’s my plan, we can do this.

I think…

I hope..

I Pray…

Now, I feel better. I have vented and all will be well. My cool will be kept all summer long.

My yoga mat beacons and I’ll have a good smoothie to follow right now. I have to get some yoga in right now because the hours are going by fast and they will be home SOON.

ALL SUMMER LONG!

What are your summer plans?

Bum Foot

19 May

I have really been remiss about a lot of things lately. With my three boys school, baseball, life schedule I have just been running tirelessly around like crazy.  Working out and eating right would be a couple of those things I am remiss about right now. I do have a “good excuse” about it though.

My dear sweet girlfriend, who is a total workout warrior, motivated me, over Spring break, with this text message: “Ran on the beach in my bikini, barefoot, and it was great”. WOW! I thought. I am going to do that too! She was in Georgia, on the coast and I was in Gulf Shores, outside of Pensacola so I figured I’d run too. I ran 2 miles barefoot however, no bikini just shorts and a top.

Gulf Shores

I felt GREAT!!!! I felt great until a day later, my foot began to hurt, it got worse, and now a month later it isn’t as bad BUT it still hurts!

Geesh! I blame it on my age. I use to heal so much faster when under the age of 40, LOL! I must say that my girlfriend is not as “old” as I am and she is a true runner. I am just making excuses now because we are both 40 and up. She even has a FB page for this 400 days Until 40, a page to encourage, uplift and motivate us to continue on our journey, defying age and stereotypes about age.

So, with my foot injury I continue to teach cycle, yoga and ZUMBA, with a good ace bandage wrap but I haven’t worked out much at all. Any pressure on my foot is not good. However I must press on and will! NO EXCUSES!
