I alluded to my bad allergies earlier this year, and then stopped posting completely... Allergies have ruled my life the past few months and I am hoping I'm starting to be past the all encompasing allergies. I started getting allergy shots- the cluster method where you get three shots within 1 1/2 hours once a week... I got to the second week of the shots and had a massive allergic reaction to them and had to be moved down to the traditional one shot at a time schedule. So twice a week I've been going down to the allergist to get a shot and wait 1/2 hour to make sure I don't have any reaction... and then go on with my day. Oh and I get a big welt on my arm that hurts and itches for the rest of the day, and then just continues to itch for the next day... Fun, fun, fun... but this should be helping my allergies and hopefully next year at this time I won't have to be using a nose spray and taking allergy medicine and still battling sinus pressure and headaches... cross your fingers this will work for me! :)
We have 8 more school days left in the school year. It's going to be hard to keep the kids on a schedule to still get up and make it to school on time each day. The weather has been beautiful and the little kids have been playing outside every single day after school with the neighborhood kids. The big kids are done with pretty much all the school work in their classes so they have no homework and want to get to do everything as if school was already out for the summer.
I'm starting my new exercise program and goals this week. Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, and the couch to 5k program. I will get myself back into a regular exercise routine and get rid of some of this excess weight so I have more energy to take care of my family! I'm going to start posting on this blog to keep myself accountable and make sure I get that exercise in each day.
