JOGGING!!!!!

Well, last night I had to bring Haley to bball practice. I had an hour that I could either sit and watch prat. or go workout. I did NOT want to workout. However, I did workout. And that workout sparked something in me, I jogged for 10 min, and walked for 25. For athletes or people that are runners, 10 min jogging might not be a big deal but for me, it's HUGE!!!!! I mean HUGE. It felt awesome. Then I did some laps in the pool. Working out is such a stress releiver. The key for me, is to keep going even when I don't want to. Last night I prayed, seriously prayed that God would help me get up and go early this morning and get my workout in. I wanted to do something different. Change something in my routine that is good. Well, I got up!!! And this morning I jogged 15 minutes!!! And tomorrow I start working w/ a trainer. The YMCA offers a trainer for free for 12 weeks. I am soooo pumped. It's almost the end of spring break. I have to admit, I like not having to get up and get anyone off to school. But, the weather has been crappy for the majority of the week, the kids have been in the house and driving me nuts, lol. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I would rather be home w/ them, having them make me want to pull my hair out, then off somewhere at a daycare or whatever because I was working. I realize for so many moms that that is a must for them. I am thankful that I can stay home. My kids are good, thoughtful, loving kids. They barely fight w/ each other, they will help out around the house and do chores w/o complaining..(too much, lol)... So.. Darnell had to work mandatory overtime. He works so hard. I am thankful for the OT. Well we are off to my friends house so the kids can all play together and the moms can talk!!
