Casey the Writer and My New Workout Plan

Casey came downstairs the other day and said, "Soooooo, what do you think????  Do I look like a writer???"  And, well, the answer is clearly a yes.




When we went shopping last weekend, I let the girls pick something new from Claire's and all that they wanted were fake glasses.  Ahem, Molly?  I really think they might be your children.

*************************************

I also had an epiphany last week.  I have fallen off the working out wagon.  My schedule is just nutty and during the week it is almost impossible for me to make it there.  But then I suffer from guilt.  And things just go downhill from there.  But then came the epiphany and I think its going to turn things back around for me.  

I am going about it all wrong.  Over the summer, I was going 3 to 5 times...during the week and saving my days off and cheat days for the weekend.  Clearly, this is no longer working for me.  So, I need to turn it around.  I need to go to the gym Friday, Sat and Sun...when there is a little more time to squeeze it in and cutting myself a little slack during the week.

Not too long ago, I had a melt down...on the phone with my mother...in the parking lot of the post office.  Awesome, right?  And she said something amazing to me.  The problem is that I keep putting too much pressure on myself.  

And so, I am taking the during the week pressure off.  During the week, my job is my job, my family, and getting the girls where they need to be.  Period.  End of story.  I have to make it day to day and then I can concentrate on everything else over the glorious, way too short, weekends.  

So, this is my new plan.  I'll let you know how it goes.

You go girl. You are doing the right thing.

Tell that darling daughter she does look like a writer. I would buy one of her books :)
