Spring is here which means lots of things to do here at Carter Acres… Gardens to get ready,lots of grass to cut, deer to deal with and them darn rascally rabbits! Which means we spend alot of time outside which is good for me bc if I’m outside and busy I’m not ginna think about snacking nor am I going to have the kitchen calling my name.
This week has been pretty good except started out with Jakers not feeling good and ended with Char not feeling to great. Still working on decluttering the house, we seriously have so much stuff in this house and the way the house is built there is no inside storage, and I think the boys are beginning to transition from needing a playroom full of toys to needing less toys in there because despite my begging and pleading with them they are growing up 😦
The diet area is going slow we tried to just jump into paleo but that kinda bit me in the ass. I’m learning not to try and force things on the boys and David and letting them come to this on their own (yes I know Leah is like “duh, no shit sherlock I’ve been telling you this for forever”). When we cut soda he went to koolaid then last week he was like look I think we should cut the koolaid the kids and I are really getting so much sugar. I was like Hello Duh! In my mind so I am happy to report they are off koolaid and sugary drinks.
Workouts are going I’ve been doing hazing with the mamavation applicants and doing my Tae Bo video and I am going to attempt to start training for my mamavation 5k at the end of June 🙂 which is awesome that we are having the 5k because I could use some new shoes which ties in awesomely to our giveaway this week… I am very excited to see all the finalists tonight!!!!
