Checking In

Last week turned out to be a wash in the grand scheme of things but I learned some good lessons about fatigue and managing my resources. In a nutshell, I was reminded that to get things done, I had to prioritize and be willing to let the small things go. In this case last week the "small things" turned out to be my daily exercise and my priorities were work and "one chore" per day. As long as I was able to come home and do "one thing" before I gave into the fatigue, the day was a success.

This weekend was devoted to rest and relaxation. It was just me, TIVO and the latest Harry Potter book while Jim was doing his Reserve Weekend. It was just what the Dr. ordered.

So now a new week has begun and already I have some encouraging news to report. Yesterday I got a 2.5 mile Run/Walk done. My goal this week is simply 30-40 minutes of cardio, every other day. I'm off to a good start!

Living STRONG, day by day!

I love the ONE CHORE RULE. :-) I've adopted a rule with my husband that if you're minding the babies, if you get ONE thing done around the house, it's a Good Day. Sometimes that's just putting the dishes in the dishwasher and turning it on.

Nancy, the girls are so busy and active that you should adopt the "One Chore - EVERY OTHER DAY rule. :)
