Busy to nth degree — June 5, 2008

Busy to nth degree

I don’t know why, but they busy-ness of my life seems to have increased exponentially in the last couple of weeks.  Usually things slow down in the summer for me, but not this summer apparently.  My work load is heavier than usual, and my work load at home is pretty freakin big too.  It just seems to never end.  Hopefully next week we will be finished with baseball (except for one more tournament), and the hubs will be back from his fishing trip in Canada, so maybe things will lighten up a little. 

 

The kids have to be at the sitter’s by 6:30 in the morning, so I have been getting up at 5:00 in order to get myself and them ready for the day.  Getting up at 4:30 to walk is not something I can do right now, so I have been giving myself a break from the early morning walks and instead doing it in the afternoon.  So far so good, but some days, I really have to fight to squeeze in a workout.  I figure 15 minutes is better than no minutes at all. 

 

I’m thinking about getting some DVDs to work out with in the cool air conditioning of my living room, because sometimes it gets a bit stifling in the garage on the treadmill.  I have a yoga DVD, but it is pretty low key and really only good for relaxing.  I’m thinking maybe something in the form of kickboxing – I don’t have the patience to learn a whole aerobic dance routine these days.  I have several Denise Austin videos, but sometimes she gets on my nerves, and I get fed up with all the intricate little moves she throws in.   I need something simple, but fun.  Any suggestions?

 

Gotta get back to work, have a great day y’all.
