Mommy Fitness Blog: ASTALAVISTA BABY!!

February 11, 2011

I am leaving in six hours. It is 2am and I am just finishing my to do list – which was long and tiresome. I still have to do payroll and then I get to cuddle with my boys for the remainder of the night until I get up at 5am to leave for the airport at 6am, so I can be ready for my flight at 8am!!

I can’t believe it! very shortly David and I will be traveling to Europe ALONE together. It is going to be amazing. I am soooo excited. I’m a little nervous leaving the boys but my mother-in-law flew in from Mississippi to take care of the kids so they could still be in their home environment. THAT makes me super happy – plus, I made a calendar for her so she can be relieve nearly every day by a cousin, friend or relative. I spent some quality time with them today by killing two birds with one stone! I ran and took them to the park using my side-by-side double jogger. I love my double jogger!

Last week my shoulder blade injury became worse. I had to go to an emergency massage before leaving for SF on Saturday because it hurt so bad. I ended up changing massage therapists mid way through because the first woman was so terrible. The second woman was AMAZING. Now – keep in mind, I NEVER used to like massages. For some reason, I just didn’t like people touching me…I’ve never been a touchy person! (with strangers) Since David gets massages often and have now given up on me and my body pains, I decided to start adding massage therapy to my personal therapy πŸ™‚ I think I’ve become sort of a connoisseur with massage therapists too (which is why the first woman on Sat left the room)

Some of my biggest pet peeves with massages therapists are:

– if they use too much oil. Gosh, don’t drench me with that stuff!

– if they don’t know how to massage in flow with the muscle and not against it!

– if I have to tell them what’s wrong with me because they don’t have the experience or knowledge to figure it out themselves

– if they spend too much time on one area and not fully completing other important areas on the body

– if they don’t massage hard enough

okay – that’s my complaint for the month! πŸ™‚ (especially since I won’t be blogging for two weeks)

Wow – it’s been a while since I gave myself a “blogging break”. I can’t believe I write online as much as I do! It will be interesting to get all of David’s attention (since he won’t have a computer) and neither will I! I’m so excited!!!! πŸ™‚

I do plan on working out often when I’m gone if I’m not trekking around Rome or Athens of course. I won’t be strict or anything, I just know I FEEL better when I’m eating clean and training my body. I realize that now more than ever because I am VERY premenstrual right now. I am bloated beyond belief and I could eat chips one minute then candy the next. (trying to balance that sugar and salt) This proves that NO I am not perfect, I DO admit to my cheat days and I WILL admit that these last few days have been extra tough with my hormones all over the place. Not only am I pms-ing but I have a shoulder injury and well…I eat when I feel sorry for myself to! LOL

I was considering working out before I leave in a few hours. Of course, when I finally get to sleep, I don’t think I will want to wake up except to put on my shoes and brush my teeth! We will see. It’s going to be a long flight and most often ALWAYS train on days like that.

See all of you in two weeks! Read past daily motivations and train hard!!!!! Astalavista Baby!!!!

I took the photo below yesterday morning at the gym. I am VERY bloated (I actually weigh two pounds more of WATER!) but this is how my belly looks premenstrual…

I plan on having a rocking hard physique by summer!
