Thank goodness the weekend is almost here. Not that a stay home mom really GETS a weekend.. but at least the hubby will be home to help with the kids. Today I am hoping that the girls will behave because I have my first nursing exam tonight and I still have one whole chapter to memorize.. literally. The first book is 'medical terminology'... meaning LOTS and LOTS of memorizing.

Yesterdays diet was crappy yet again.. but that's ok because I ate all the cookies and ice cream that was left over from the day before.. so today I have no choice but to stick to my diet. I did work out yesterday.. and am actually really sore. I need to concentrate on drinking alot of water today. I am feeling a little dehydrated. Today's workout is Tae Bo Cardio... and tonight I need to add some weight training.

This Saturday I am supposed to be testing for my Purple belt in Kempo, but I am just so overwhelmed with everything else that I am not prepared for it. I am actually thinking of dropping the class and just getting a daily pass to the gym every Saturday. I think that I will get a better workout from it, and the stress of having to memorize more forms and take downs will not be there. As much as I love the art, I don't seem to have the passion for it that I did when I was younger.

I will leave you with this picture of my Pre-Madonna... get it.. underwear on the outside!! LOL

Drink that water! You don't want to get too dehydrated. And good luck with the studying!

Yesterday, I dropped/paused one of the courses I am taking, admitting that I am not superwoman and can't manage a full time job, filling the (small) gap left by my recently dismissed staff member, family, volunteer activities and 2 courses. I was trying to do too much and consequently not doing a very good job with any of it.

What a relief... of course it was immediately followed by disappointment in myself. Although today, I'm really just feeling the relief!

Here's hoping your withdrawal from Kempo leaves you feeling only the relief!

Good luck with your exam Tigerlilly! Too bad about the poor eating for the last couple of days, but that happens to all of us. You usually have a great way of just picking up and getting over it. I hope you make a decision about Kempo that you are happy with. Just do what you feel is right.

Have a great weekend!!

p.s. Your Sloth post from yesterday literally put the fear of God in me! Yikes!!!

Hi friend! I bet you kicked booty on your exam!! I'm starting on the 13th and it's freaking me out. LOL!

Don't stress yourself out about Kempo - you have so many things going on right now, something's gotta give. But you're on the right track because you're exchanging it for another workout! Great job!!

My friend Michelle (great name, eh?) is a SAHM, and homeschools her kids (13, 10, 7 and 1.5), and sends her kids to her in-laws on the weekends. Fortunately they live close by, and she says it saves her sanity!

P.S. When I read your Words to Live By, the first time around I swore I read "brownies" instead of "bowlines"! LMAO!
