Let me preface this by saying I am typing with my nose.  jj.  But I am wondering how I am going to drive my daughter to the doctor at noon.  I just did P90X, Day 1.  Wow.  wow.  To anyone thinking of doing it, get the pull up bar.  I tried to use my son’s bar upstairs, and it’s the old-school, straight across type.  P90X is modified & movable…I might get it.  P90 also uses the rubber tubes; I’m thinking of those, too…

Keep in mind I’m 42 & pretty  busy physically, anyway.  My arms are like noodles.  I would give myself a C+ overall for today.  I learned that I have a ways to go in upper body strength, cuz there are way too many push-ups to count!  I modified many of the exercises for my capabilities and in consideration of equipment…or lack thereof.  I pulled out my balance ball for the back flies and used it several times for pushups.  I figured my best effort was better than nothing, even if it felt like I wasn’t on their level.  I like that there is a time limit on exercises.  You don’t have to do 50 push-ups.  Just do what you can in the allotted time…like a minute.  Breaks are okay.  With 20 minutes left of the program, I took a BREAK and ran almost 2 miles with my girls riding on their bikes.  I just needed to get out there!  I don’t know how I pumped my arms to run, but here I am!  I finished the workout.  It’s intense. 

San Antonio was wonderful for our Easter getaway.  The best part was having our kiddos with us.  I sure do love our family.  One of our boys got sick on the way over, so we ended up in a walk-in clinic and had a couple of bad nights with him up coughing.  Now it seems that our 4th grader is getting it, hence the visit to the doctor.  ‘Sall good, though. 

I love being a mom.  How many times do you get to say in an ordinary day the following statements within a 3 minute time span?  “Put the knife down, please.”  “No, you don’t look like a robot.”  I love it.  I love reflecting on the things that actually come out of my mouth in response to these little souls I am entrusted with.  It’s great.  I wouldn’t trade a crazy nano-second of any of it.  Oh, the knife comment?  3rd grader was trying to cut open a package with a steak knife.  Robot?  Same 3rd grader was brushing her hair & felt a little iffy about her bangs.
