It's over... but not for long!

So boot camp was great! The month is over! It definitely challenged me and pushed me harder than I normally push my self when I work out. WE SURVIVED! But not only did I survive, but I signed up for another month. I am addicted. Truly 100% addicted and want to tell everyone about my experince. Here are the reasons I fell in love with working out this way, especially with TEXAS BOOTCAMP.

1. It is in the morning so I do not miss time with Wyatt - he is still sleeping.

2. My workout is done before my day starts and it makes me feel great throughout the day.

3. I eat so much better, because in my head I think - " I don't want to ruin that great workout I had this morning!"

4. It has been amazing time with sweet friends. We laugh a lot and push each other to try harder than we think we can.

5. Our trainer is wonderful!

6. We work every part of our body!

7. The workouts are never the same, so we don't get bored.

8. I have seen results!

9. I don't have to re-shower later in the day. I hate getting ready more than once a day!

10. Texas Bootcamp is a Christian Company. At the end of each work out they read us a bible story with a short lesson/devotional. Talk about great way to start my day - healthy body and healthy soul! :)

You should seriously think about Boot Camp! I know 5:30AM is early, but it has worked wonders for me. I NEVER, EVER imagined I would be a person to wake up and go work out. I actually turned my nose up at people who did and I thought they were truly crazy! I had every excuse in the book - including a really good one... "I have had 3 major knee surgeries and there are just things I can't do anymore." Not ONE time did I have to stop a workout because of my knee. And I could not be more excited to see my body being able to workout like I used too! They have workouts 6 days a week - and you can attend any session (morning or night). I am so excited I found something I love. Working out is no longer a frustration for me! We have a week off next week and I plan to run/work out to keep my body going until the next month starts! Whoo Hoo for feeling great!

Beautiful Spring Day with Wyatt

This morning we woke up to a BEAUTIFUL DAY! I could not even excercise the thought of staying in doors. While Wyatt was eating breakfast I took a morning run and then came home to show him the surprise I bought him yesterday, Sidewalk Chalk!

We played outside for over an hour - coloring on the sidewalk. Here are the things we colored; dinosaurs (t-rex), baseballs, soccer balls, footballs and wrote all our names several times! Then we decided we wanted to have a little family outing. We headed to Corner Bakery - definitely one of my favorite places to eat in the whole world!! We sat on the porch and enjoyed the weather even more! Wyatt scarfed down a grilled cheese and a cup of fruit while Andrew and I had our favorite salads! We then decided to take Wyatt to try out Putt Putt for the first time. We play "golf" all the time outside in our driveway so we thought this would be a great idea. He was given a little golf set at his birthday and I normally stand at one end of the driveway; him at the other and we just hit it back and forth. Needless to say I was wondering how he would handle putting the ball in the hole! Here are some pictures below! He loved it! Daddy teaching him how to hold to club.
YEAH! He got it in!

He looks like a pro!
He is such a big boy - and doesn't he look soo cute in his new boat shoes?! :)
Daddy and Wyatt taking a break!
Me and my sweet little buddy!
Wyatt had a small meltdown at the 18th hole. He was not very happy that the ball was "gone." He kept getting on his stomach and looking into the hole asking where it went? It only got worse when we had to return the golf club. He just did not understand why anyone would give him a ball and club and then take them back! :)

This is how Wyatt plays Putt Putt - I think I like his method!!! :)
