Boot Camp Day 8 (Feeling great?)
This morning was really tough for me to get out of bed. I am tired and have been under some emotional stress as well. But the girls from this boot camp are so great that I just did not want to miss a day. We did lots of different exercises and had fun like always, and I got through it (after griping a few times) Above you will see a picture of my Dad, who passed away on April 10th, 2009...just one week shy of a month after this picture was taken from a heart attack/blockages. It was also my daughter's 1st birthday. I need to keep getting up and exercising each morning. My brother's wedding was a great way for all of us to be together one last time...I miss my parents so much right now. I can't do this to my kids.
I am so glad that I have a network of women around me to help me get through. We are going to be doing a weight loss study for 9 weeks that tackles the emotional end of eating. I will post the book info when I have it in my hands. Maybe this could help others too.
My son, Jack, who is 3 has been playing video games (specifically mario kart) for the Wii, and is REALLY good at it. I don't want him playing all the time, but it has really REALLY calmed down the behavior issues that he has been having lately. Any advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Hope you all had a great day!
