Day 2

    Well, the weight watchers is going good.  The only thing I'm struggling with is I had 21 activity points because of my 8 mile run and my workout for the day.  I don't know if I should eat more and use those points or not.  I guess I will just have to take it day by day to figure it out.  I only used 2 of those points yesterday but I think I will have to use more today. 

    Today I got in a 4 mile run and an hour workout that had a 2 mile run in it.  I loved the hour workout!!  It was tough but I would do it all over again.  I'm super tired now!  Trying to rest up before the kids get home from school because that is when my day really begins!!  Lot's of homework and snacks for the kids.  Thank goodness no after school activities tonight, that starts next week.

     Speaking about the kids, on August 6 they did their second 5K ever!!  Jim and I are so proud! 

The boys ran together and completed it in 36:11.  Jacob ran 2.3 miles without stopping!!  He walked a .3 and then ran the rest of the way!!  He was very excited!!  The girls and I finished it in 41:53.  They ran their first mile and ran walked the second and third mile.  I was very pleased with how hard they tried!!  I'm also happy to say that Maddie (my middle child) and Jacob (my youngest) is joining the Cross Country Team for their elementary school.  That is very exciting for my husband and I to hear because we want them to love running as much as we do!! Carlie (my oldest) made the middle school dance team.  I'm so proud of her because I did dance team when I was in middle school too.  I love keeping the kids active in sports!!
