Last monday I had my 6 week check-up after having Luke. I was so excited because my doctor finally ok'd me to start exercising. I had huge plans on how I was going to start. I was planning on cardio for 30 minutes and then switch to muscle building for a few moments.

What lofty dreams...

I was able to pull it off on Tuesday and Wednesday but the other days were not so hot. Thursday I was exercising and was doing really well too but just when my heart rate was going up I heard this cry coming from the bedroom. Yep, Luke had finished his long 15 mintue nap. I kept trying to exercising in between changing and feeding him but it just wasn't happening.

Friday is a whole other story. Luke had kept me up late the night before and hadn't slept for more then 1.5 hours at a time during the night. I was so wiped out that I couldn't even think about moving my muscles that much.

I hope that next week will be better. I think that I just need to get on a schedule and stick to it. I really want all this baby weight to come off.

Well, I am signing off. I hear Luke beginning to stir in the other room.

I am still trying to put up a slideshow but for now I will show you a new picture I took today. Luke is getting so big!

Introducing Myself

I should probably say a little more about myself on here.

I am a SAHM to my 5 week old Luke. He was born Aug 17th and every day grows sweeter with him in our family. My husband and I got married New Years Eve 2005 and I fall more in love with him all the time.

I was homeschooled 2nd grade through 12th and I plan on homeschooling my children. I would never look down on anyone for not homeschooling but I feel that it is the best way to go. I haven't decided yet what program I am going to use (I have some time still to decide) but I am really liking HomeSat. Our Pastor uses it for his kids and the kids love it.

Our life is very interesting right now. We are living with my uncle until Oct so all of our earthly belongings are being stored. We have gotten very good at living out of our suitcases since we are going from place to place all the time.

I will have to keep you updated as we plan on moving in the next week or so.

Just Starting

I am just starting to blog and I don't know how faithful I will be.

I am hoping that I will be able to keep in better contact with my family and friends by using this.

I am still setting this up so bear with me as I learn how to do this :)
