Small Successes (Vol. 12)
1. Back-to-school preparations are nearing completion. I'm sure I forgot something, but as of now the house is relatively clean, the shoes and uniforms are in the closet, the hairs are cut and even the ballet uniforms and school sports forms are filled out! This is a pretty big deal for me because I have a strong tendency toward procrastination (just as my husband, my mom and every teacher I ever had).
2. P90X is still going strong. I'm in the last phase around day 70, I think. I was starting to get worried about the school year interfering with my morning workout schedule when my most wonderful husband suggested that, as long as I'm done by 7:15 to help pack lunches and fix hair, he would get the kids up, dressed and fed! Is that a good man or what?
3. Toward the goal of being done with my workout by 7:15, I've had to commit to getting up earlier. Several of the days include 15 minute Ab Ripper X at the end which puts me behind schedule. I've started setting the alarm earlier and earlier. Today, I had such an upsetting dream that I woke up at 5:15. I couldn't shake the dreadful feeling so I decided to get up at 5:30. It was nice being done before 7:00! Did you know that it is pitch black outside at 5:30 in the morning?
