Busy Times And Smart Kids

Whew! It's been a busy couple of weeks; I will spare you all of the details. :)

I've nearly finished Phase 2 of the Pull Up Challenge Workout. I didn't look too far ahead and so I didn't realize that Phase 2 has 16 workouts, instead of 12 like Phase 1. I'm not sure if I was supposed to do all 16 workouts in 4 weeks, but I decided to keep my same schedule and did Phase 2 in about 5 weeks. I was going to finish this past weekend; however, I still have 1 workout left and then the final pull up test. So far, my best score is 3.5 pull ups from my toes.

After I finish Phase 2, I am going to take about a week off and then I'll be starting my triathlon training. There is a Phase 3 as well, but I think I'm going to have to wait until the fall to complete it.

Instead of my final workout yesterday morning, my daughter and I went to the store and bought her a new bike. Then when we got home, she had to try and ride it right away. :)

After that, I started making lunch. My daughter has decided that she wants a "healthy lunch" on Sundays, so we have been making lunch instead of going out to eat. I think she is just tired of "chicken and french fries", which is the only thing she will eat when we go out. I've tried explaining to her that she can choose a healthier option, but she insists that we should "eat healthy" at home. Who am I to argue with that?? PS. She was reading this over my shoulder as I was typing and corrected 2 typos. Smarty pants. Not that I am a proud mom or anything like that, but I think I found an editor. :)

So after lunch, I spent the afternoon cleaning the house because I knew that the plumber would be stopping by this week. Our house is experiencing multiple system failure. First, the dishwasher was acting funny, then the water softener went kaplooey, and now the dryer isn't heating properly.

In addition, my kids have started swimming lessons and a cooking class (which is pretty cool), so life has gotten pretty busy. :)

Have a great day!
