Taking it all to a new level.

Our whole family besides my skinny butt son struggle with weight issues. Now that it is warmer and I am going nuts being left inside the apartment at all hours, we are doing all we can to stay active. I bought wiifit to motivate me. I am embarassed of all my glory jiggling around for all the "fat" skinny girls to giggle at. So this motivates me at home. So far I have dropped 2.8 lbs and that is without heavy dieting. Also my complex officially opened the pool and this afternoon we all trudged down there. The water was so cold it sent an electric shock down my spine. But we are moving and getting physical activity so we dont morph into giant blobs.

Big Ro joined his work's company kickball and softball team. For those who do not know what kick ball is imagine softball but you kick the ball instead of hit with a bat same rules. We went to the first game of the season today and I finally found some sense of normalcy. I talked to other adults besides relatives and showed my dedication to my man. He kicked the ball hard and I was very proud of him. He also observed me when I did not know. We are bonding more. My children also got to have sense of freedom. They played at a playground 10 yards away with children about the same age. Yes I bitch and moan about his hours at work but I know this is opening us up as a family outside of our apartment. So here are my goals for this summer.

Make one group of friends that are not online or from previous relationship already formed
Lose 22 pds
Take my children outside at least an hour a day
Do half hour step aerobics in morning and half hour at night
Be more patient with life in general

As always life has it's up and downs but I am just riding it. I am taking it one day at a time and loving life. I will moan and groan once in awhile too as I like to say Life cannot always be butterflies and rainbows.
