Park and Play 3 *Wicked Abs!*

Okay so my abs are far from wicked but I was helping CJ workon my MIL house yesterday and I totally managed to do it with out pussing out which is uber huge for me because well frankly I have spent years out of shape and rather lazy :blush: I also jumped on the tramp with the kids repeatedly and I went for an hour long run this morning IN THE MOUNTAINS, so like up hill the whole first half!!!!!!!!!!! I about died, I dont think I have even coughed so much before :-/

Okay the work out

I will be revamping come winter but I will leave friday open for just body updates, my body tends to be one of my biggest and most painful struggles in life, as a mother and a woman. I hope to over come that with basic exercise and ledning my self to health so my kids can have a healthy and fun mama

Meal Plan Monday

Now that school is out and summer is in full swing (just ask my kids who are spraying each other in the backyard and refuse to take a nap!) the insanity of meal planning has shifted from Friday to Monday and shopping happens on Friday. I try to do a bigger shop on the Friday of Coreys paychecks so that I have my basics squared away for the two weeks (I never shop for more than two weeks because if it is in the house it will get eaten).

This week was the second week of Coreys paycheck so I bought my *extras*. My Menu looks like this
Monday *breakfast* Waffles with strawberries *lunch* crackers with melted cheese and lunch meat *dinner* veggie fajitas
Tuesday *b* oatmeal with protein powder *l* PBJ *d* stir fries
Wednesday *b* pancakes *l* left overs *d* small group (We are taking mozzarella and tomato salad with sweet basil from my new herb garden)
Thursday *b* oatmeal with blueberries *l* cheese crackers and meat *d* shrimp and rice with mango
Friday *b* pancakes and grocery shopping
 I use this meal planner page and I frickin love them! I love her too!

AK the Right Way

I know from the title this sounds either very gun rights or elitist, it’s neither! I am doing a 6 week running journal on how the Accountable Kids program has or hasn’t worked for us.
Some back ground- I have been pseudo implementing this program for 9 months…9 months of failure…on my part and confusion on my kids part

So, I ordered a starter kit- the book and a board, the boys already have boards so I got one for Emmy because she is eager to flip cards like her brothers!

I read the book, well enough to know I may have chose the wrong career field, I had no idea kids computed things sooo differently than adults. But hey, better late than never…

Was


Now


Minimizing to start!
The boys set the table and cleared it without being asked!! They have flipped morning cards and are being much more co-operative and happy!!
