It's been a rough past 2 weeks and I have been to the gym maybe once! Yikes. But it's not from being lazy it's just life took over. Can you relate? I promise I have thought about working out, felt the guilt of not making it to the gym, but a mom needs to sleep at some point right? Over the past month and some change I have been assisting the music teacher at my kid's school. Every year the elementary classes put on a huge musical production. She has never really had someone there all the time to help her and I was happy to be of service. However it consumed my life and left no time (or energy) for the gym.
That all ended last week and I am excited to get back to my regularly scheduled gym visits. I'm even, dare I say, looking forward to running again! As far as food goes I would like to say I was excellent in my choices but that wouldn't be true. I was eating whenever I got a chance and I even broke down and got a few frappes just to satisfy my sweet tooth. Today is a new day and this is a new week. I have 2 weeks to get in my running before school ends here and BAM life gets crazy again!
This week on Mamavation TV Tracy and Charley Vega are teaching on self defense for women. I have never taken a self defense class but I have always wanted to. Self defense is an important lesson not only for women but children as well. With the amount of bad people increasing in the world I want myself and my kids to be protected as much as possible.
Have you ever taken a self defense class?

I know I can relate about life taking over sometimes. Good for you for recognizing getting back to your routine is a good thing. Have fun setting it up before BAM summer gets here (which I hope is a chance for another good routine).
I have never taken a self-defense class but often considered it. Great job getting back to things. You’ll feel so much better, I’m sure! 🙂
Good luck getting back into the swing of things!! You will definitely start having more energy 🙂
I totally feel you on the life getting in the way thing. My workout is the first thing to get pushed aside if I don’t think I have enough time in my day. But we can do this! Let’s get back on the wagon!
I can definitely relate. But, it sounds like you’re working on getting back into the swing of things.
