OUCH.

Status: Sore. Super Awesome Personal Trainer has recommended I take up Yoga in addition to my weight/cardio routine, to help stretch out the soreness and limber me up. I am a big fan of Yoga, I did it for a couple of months while in Denver, but the whole "peaceful environment/time to do it" thing has evaded me since. She's going to find a good program for me. Now if I can get Thing Four to nap for more than 15 minutes at a time...

Lots to do today. Oh, and in case any of you are wondering, I've been tearing up the edits on my story, I just haven't adjusted my Zokotu meter because of a very simple reason: laziness. You have to re-insert the html code into the blog template every time you make progress. Frankly, I think I'll update it every Monday. Every day just isn't going to happen.

Thing One is being a downright RAG lately. It's like, as soon as she turned Ten, she turned from a happy, bouncing silly girl, into a moody, grumpy sassy-pants. I want the old Thing One back! :-( Today she's mad at me because I told her she couldn't go to her Pokemon Card Collecting Party/Sleepover at her friend's house unless her room was PRISTINE. She's dragging her heels. Hubby and I decided this morning that if she didn't finish her room before tonight (the party) I am seriously calling up the mother and cancelling. It won't be fun, but it's the only way we can get through to her, if she doesn't do what we ask.

She's a bit spoiled, I will admit. She's our only girl. But she has a lot of responsibilities and chores and she works around the house. I just wish the whole "cranky" thing was not a factor. But then I look at what *I* was like growing up, and I had the capability of being a Class A Beotch, when I was in a bad mood. Heh heh, not that you'd know it now. ;-) Just ask my Hubby!

Have a happy weekend, all! Time to feed the baby and mop some floors! Cheerfully I go...

Stick to your guns with Thing 1. Trust me, I have a 10 and a 12 year old girl and if you don't set down some guidelines now, you'll be sorry!

Congrats on the YOGA. I joined a gym last month, but with B1 having basketball practice every night until 7 pm, I really can't find time to get there.

YOGA BLISS by Tara Fraser, has some of the best sequences I've found. I do one of the sequences at the end of my regular yoga session, or any time I feel stressed -- and they make me feel the best.

Ooo... good luck with the yoga. I know you can do it. :)

I don't have to ask your hubby your moods, I lived it!(it's a family thing though, right?):)

A friend of mine has been trying to get me to do yoga as well, and just the visual alone of me doing it sends me off into a fit of giggles and trying not to fall of my chair. Some day (the magical day) I'll try it out.

I am not a yoga enthusiast, more of a pilates. But my friends swear by it. Tell us what you think.

You're out exercising, getting in shape. Now will you stop it? You're making me feel guilty.

Good luck with the clean room or no party thing.
