I still need to get my workouts in but today has been a pretty uneventful day...but it was fun. I didn't do much, ran some errands with mom and it was very enjoyable. Then again, that is how it always is with my mom. :)
I have my trip coming up soon...leaving on the 16th in the evening. Then...dropping the girls off in Missouri and on to Texas for a week. Then...pick the girls up...and head home. After that, I have to get blood work done on the 4th to see what is going on with my hemoglobin and then we will be ID bound...I hope. I still need to figure out the moving portion because I do not have the $2000 for a moving truck and such. I want to just do a trailer since I don't have an extreme about of stuff to move (a 1 bedroom apartment basically) but I don't have a car with a trailer it's the matter of finding someone who has that...and is willing to drive to ID. I do think that if that is the route I go, I am going to avoid going through the desert.

So much stress of trying to get everything done and sorted and ugh. At least there is hope. I can always cling to that and hope that things will work out beautifully. I know it's the right step...I just need to make sure everything can fall into place as well. I'll figure it out...I always do. When times are hard, I seem to be able to pull that miracle out of my ass. So...we shall see. Anyway, on to completing this to-do list and workout! :)

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Lower Focus is soooooo hard!! Sooo many squats and lunges...I have to take short breaks between them because otherwise, it's too much for my knees. I don't go as deeply but deep enough to feel the burn. I made it through! :D

Plank: 40 second side dips...these as super hard. Slowly building up the strength in my obliques. It's a slow process but it will be well worth it. I can feel such a difference in my core already. :)

Kettlebell: I managed 2 rounds tonight. I didn't want to push myself too much harder because I am still not fully 100%. I also had to break inbetween each move because I wouldn't feel right so a brief breather...and then moved onto the next move, powered through and rested for less than a minute again. Someday, even if I do have this blood disorder...I am going to be able to fully do all these exercises. :)

It's the first of the month. I have good news and bad news. Good news...I got a nice house to rent in Boise, ID. I am pretty excited about it but nervous at the same time. I am mainly concerned about finances but I know that my grandpa will help me out. I just don't want to become too dependent on that. So hurdle the job front. There is a private school hiring for preschool & Elementary and that starting pay is very good so I am going to apply and hope for the best.

So on to the bad news...there is a chance I might have a blood disorder. It's a mild case but still...the doctor wants me to come in for more blood work to either confirm or rule it out. So's been an emotional roller coaster kind of day. There's a few other things as well that contributed but I will not elaborate on that...not yet. Anyhow, I am pretty proud of myself. I think I did very well eating wise and I did get not only my morning workout done but my evening one as well. Starting the month off on a good note. :)

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Total Body Circuit. I still struggle with this one and I had to stop a little more than I wanted but I managed. The moves are becoming easier so that is a great sign of my strength getting better.

Plank: 1 min plank + 35 second side dips. I struggled on both. I had to put my knees down a couple of times but I am not going to let that deter me. The side dips were difficult as well and I have to keep a knee down but it will only get better...right?

Yoga: I did this at a time when I was feeling down and I have to say, it really helped improve my mood. I feel stretched out and just...really good right now. Glad I did this.

Slow start to my day but pushing through it all and trying to work a miracle lol! I have a lot to do still and haven't been utilizing my time wisely. I really should work on correcting this. I don't really have much in the way of updating. There is a family BBQ tonight so I am hoping that I don't go over my Calorie intake. to finish getting rid of some of these tasks on my to-do list.

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Catching up on behind by a day so fixing it. Did Cardio and Ab Intervals today and holy crap! It kicked my butt HARD! I am proud I pushed through even though I was lagging with Abs. I still did it though! So...YAY!

Plank: 30 second side plank dips...these I struggle with so badly. I need to improve the strength of my obliques. I have to have one knee down on the ground while I do these to help but someday...I will do them with proper form and yeah. :)
