I survived production week last week, and the kids did a great job. I am so proud of them! I am proud of myself too, there was no crazy stress-induced eating on my part, yay me! I also completed the water challenge this week and worked out 2 days for 30 minutes each day. Friday I was late starting my water, because we were out of my Zephyrhills Spring Water, and I actually got a headache from not having any water. Once I got hydrated I felt fine. By the way…this was week 4 with no soda!!
To top it all off..I lost 3 pounds this week for a total of 8 lbs in 6 weeks!! I am so happy 🙂 !
This is another crazy week…graduation week. As homeschoolers we have the pleasure of directing our children’s education, choosing their curriculum and making sure it lines up with our faith and our values. I have recently learned that it also means a lot of work for the parents when graduation time comes around. Aaron, my 17yo will graduate with our homeschool covering on Thursday night and with our homeschool support group on Saturday morning, thus bringing his 14 yr homeschooling career to an end. I am proud to say he has already completed 20 credit hours at the State College of Florida-where he made the Dean’s List for the spring semester. Due to the fact that everything is parent-directed we have had to help plan both graduation services, design the program, choose the music, create the photo montage, organize mementos for his senior table, plan food for both receptions, create the invitations and plan his graduation party. Phew. Most of that is done but this week is filled with last minute details and rehearsals the 2 services and the party, and shopping for presents for some of the other graduates. I’ve been finding some cool stuff on OpenSky, have you checked it out yet? I’m going to start selling there this summer too so keep an eye out for my new store!
My challenge this week will be fitting in exercise, some of my days are filled to the minute and not over indulging at the receptions and party. My mother-in-law ordered a fancy cake for the graduation party and I’ve already been told I need to try each of the flavored layers-I am planning my food to allow some wiggle room without crashing and burning. I will continue to drink my water, move as much as possible and make wise eating choices this week. I would like to know what you eat for healthy snacks between meals (please don’t say yogurt I can’t stand yogurt). Please let me know in the comments cause I need some help finding good snacks.
