It's been a while...

I have taken a break from blogging for a while, but not because I want to.  These summer classes are kicking my butt.  The kids are still going to school 2 days a week and I spend every second reading and taking quizzes and completing reading response questions.  I'm dying!!!  I don't know how I'm going to do it once school starts again and I have to work full-time.

I thought I would have plenty of time to exercise this summer and eat well, but it hasn't gone as planned.  I have been going to the gym for a good hour and a half on the days I do have the is best for them that I take a break everyday or I may strangle them.  Hahaha They have hit the lets yell and scream and hit each other ALL day because we don't know how to just play nice.  It is really challenging me to keep my cool and not to lose my patience.

So, that means I have been working out probably 3-4 times a week. My eating has been better, but not great.  I get so caught up studying when I don't have the kids that I don't eat until early afternoon and I'm sure that is killing my metabolism.  Therefore, my goal for the next 2 weeks it to eat regularly and keep each meal small.  I am going to be strict on my calories and try to stay under 1400 per day.  I know that seems like a lot, but I seem to not lose if I go under 1300.  I'm hoping for some progress because I've gained about 5 pounds since May and would really like to lose about 20 by my 30th birthday in December.  It feels a little weird to say 30...LOL!
