Tooting My Horn Post

Instead of our usual "confessions" post on Tuesday's the Sisterhood has changed things up and now we are "tootin' our horn". I actually have a couple of things to "toot my horn" about this week so here I am!

Bullets are fast and easy, right?

* I have been participating in the #6PackMarch challenge with a few lovely ladies looking to tone up the arms and core before summer. I have done all 13 days of this during March and today I did a plank for 1 minute and 10 seconds! I also did 17 pushups and 45 SITUPS! These were straight out sit ups. Not crunches, Not knees bent sit ups. I could hardly believe I did them all!

* I have been doing a weight lifting program with a bunch of ladies (we are calling ourselves the #IronSisters) and I have surprised myself with how well I am sticking with it. I realized tonight that next time I workout with this program I will be half way done with Stage 1. I'm actually sticking with something that has to do with weight lifting!! Whooohoo!

* I have notoriously been a terrible lesson planner when it comes to planning lessons for our homeschool, but over the past couple of months I have come to the conclusion that we both NEED me to plan lessons. This weekend I moved into the library and completed lessons thru the month of MAY! That's 12 weeks of lessons COMPLETE! And we have done school according to the lesson plans both Monday and Tuesday!

* Menu planning, UGH! I always thought it was a waste of time, but decided since I was on a roll this weekend I would make a menu for this week. I did it and it's gone pretty well this week. EXCEPT tonight my alfredo noodles tasted YUCKY and I didn't feel like eating a salad....so here it is 10p.m. and I'm STARVING! Goes to show how I need to follow the menu.

That's enough tooting my horn for tonight. How has your week been?

Sounds like you have had a great week! I'm doing the #6Pack March challenge too, but couldn't do it yesterday. I started Tae Kwon Do with my son and I was so sore yesterday that the idea of even getting down on the ground to be able to do a sit up was too much. But I'm going to do it twice today to make up for it.

Keep up the great work!
