Every summer has a story

This summer my story is going to be entitled:  Sleeveless Shirt.  Why?  Because I'm gonna work my ass off until I can wear one and not think twice about how I have old lady swinging arms.  You know what I'm talking about. 

I completed 3 weeks of my bootcamp and missed the 4th due to our Boston trip (which I'll blog about next!).  For 3 weeks I was hardcore consistent with the nutrition of clean eating and water drinking.  I worked out 3 days a week at boot camp and 2 days a week of 45 min. cardio at my gym.  I lost 6.5 inches and 10.4 pounds.  It's not noticeable because I have so much further to go but it's a damn good start and therefore I'm sold and I'm continuing. 

Boot camp #2 starts tomorrow.  I'm starting another 14 day detox tomorrow which I found to be pretty easy with boot camp #1 four weeks ago.  It SUCKS BIG TIME but it's not hard.  It's just clean eating.  It's not complicated, there are very few rules, it's just clean eating.  Rid the toxins then don't introduce them back in in any great quantity.  And yes, that includes caffeine.  I know.  That bites the big one.  

Clean eating and regular exercise.  I'm not gonna lie to say I'm kinda bummed it works but I'm pretty sure that's the magic secret everyone searches for in a pill.  Swallowing a pill would just be so much easier.  This, however, is the real deal and so for now it's a new way of life.  I have so much further to go and I'm committed.  

Operation Sleeveless Summer may become Operation Sleeveless Fall but that's ok.  I'll be with it as long as it takes.  And if you see me in November in a tank top, please don't ask me if I'm cold.  Just notice the old lady swinging arms aren't following me around anymore.  I may even order one of those shirts.  You know the ones I'm talking about.

Oh, yeah.

I'm gonna pahk my cah in Hahvahd Yahd. For realz.

Today Drew and I leave for our 2nd annual DrewMommy trip to Boston.  We are going earlier in the summer than usual because my cousin is graduating and we're going to see her ceremony.  Did I mention she's graduating from Harvard?  She is.  This is actually her third degree and our third trip back east to see her receive her degree.  I consider myself as smart as the average bear but for my self esteem I'm calling it quits on going to East coast smart schools to see my family members continue to get smarter.  Anyway, I'm glad Drew will get to experience this and see the life that Jennie has been leading.

Chris is going to hold down the fort here at home with the other two while Drew and I are gone.  I have this fantasy that Lauren will wet the bed at 3am and he won't be able to find the sheets.  I dream that William will get grass stains on his pants at school and Chris will fumble in the laundry room trying to figure out what to do with that.  I notsosecretly hope that the fridge will become bare and he'll have to take the two grocery shopping and it'll be a melt down disaster day for both kids.  But, the truth is, none of that will happen.  The reason?  Chris is awesome.  He's capable.  He's confident.  He's 100% daddy and he's got this.  It upsets me a little.  I want him to NOT got this so that he'll marvel over the job I do everyday.  Oh, well. I'll just appreciate the fact that he is here pouring juice and giving baths and doing laundry while I'm... not.

If you are at all interested, I will likely update a bit on Peters Party of 5 facebook while we're on our trip.  Cape Cod, Harvard, Fenway Park, oh, my!

It's what we do, afterall

Happy Mother's Day

I hope you get a chance to do what you'd like today, whatever that may be.  And if it means leaving your kids with your husband or someone else to have some alone time, so be it.  No guilt.  It's your day.
