We did A LOT of walking past 2 days at Camp Arrowhead for Boy Scout camping! I'm giving myself 3 miles. I'm sure we walked more, but I just lost track. 
The kids got to shoot BB guns, bow & arrow and go fishing. We even camped out in 40 degree temps....maybe even cooler than that! 

But just being able to give my kids and our Cub Scouts this experience was TOTALLY worth it! 

I will need my Aleve & my heating blanket on my back tonight & tomorrow tho lol

I'm ready for more camping tho! Nothing like watching my kids have fun & enjoy being outdoors :)

Chilly walk

Well I didn't get to do water Zumba this morning bc I had to take my oldest child to the dr. He's been sick for about 3 weeks now w/on & off fever, LOTS of coughing & feeling crummy. But he was a trooper & kept goin to work! 
Oh yeah, I'm talking about Ted... LOL 
But he's got good meds now so hopefully he'll get better quick! 

We took advantage of the nice/chilly evening & took a family walk! Even Rufus & Marki joined us :)

Before & after...

My friend Mary from school has invited me to water Zumba this morning. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE water Zumba but I DONT WANNA GO!! My body hurts already, I feel a headache coming on, I barely got sleep last night bc Ted coughing & Emma coming over & kicking me most of night....AAHHHHH!!! 

It's been WEEKS since I've been to the Y. It's been that long since I've been motivated to do ANYTHING toward my goal for the year. I've gained all my weight BACK that I lost....I'm just frustrated!!! 
Why is this so stinking hard?!
Why can't I loose weight easier?!
Why do I always feel judged by EVERYONE around me?! 


Ok so that is a little embarrassing to read, but it's real. Totally shows I'm not perfect. But it was EXACTLY how I felt this morning. It shows how stinking WHINY I am too lol 

BUT!!!! I went to water Zumba! And I even stayed for the toning class after!! 2 hours of being in the water was...just AWESOME. I love swimming. It reminded me of how young & engerized it makes me feel! And no it wasn't because of all the older (than me) ladies in the class with me ;) 

I am SOO thankful for Mary being my motivator today! I've got some amazingly awesome friends in my life :)
