A New Day

After a wonderful talk given in Sacrament meeting yesterday. I was inspired to change our daily routine. Our new life started this morning at 5:30. Matt is less than enthusiastic, but supportive none the less. We alternated lifting weights and running on the treadmill. By 6:30 all of the kids were up so we showered and then had a song, scriptures and a prayer. What a wonderful way to start the day. After breakfast, Matt left for work (by 7:30) and how did we top off our great morning? Why, we danced to Billy Joel full blast on the stereo! What else could we do?!

I lost two pounds last week! I’m down 7 to 143! Only ten more before I’m my pre preg weight. But probably 20 or more before I’m back into my clothes. After all, before Spencer, I was a ripped marathon runner who was happy with her body for the first time in her life (even if she did weigh a little more). I had a lot of muscles. It’s going to take some work to get them back.

Our new bed time is 8:30, that way we can get enough sleep to get up early again. I sure hope this lasts, I can’t even tell you how much I hate getting up early.

    Yay on your weight loss! Good luck with your new routine. Getting up early and exercising always feels good. If I don’t exercise in the morning, than it’s likely I won’t fit exercising into my day. I bet the song, scriptures, and prayer in the morning help to set the right mood for the day. Good for you!I have no advice for Emma’s recent potty accidents. Well I guess I’ll say to be patient when you want to scream in frustration and continue to have her clean up her messes. Not fun! I’m dreading potty training Zach, but it’s going to start next month.
