Life is good!! My kids are out of school for the summer! My hubby has 3 more workdays until he completes his final flight as a military aviator. The weather has finally begun to warm up. We’re spending more time outdoors enjoying these beautiful days together.
The longer days really make me lose track of time. In the winter sunset happens around 5pm. Now, it is not until after 8pm!
I feel like we can get so much done in a day. That is if my kids will wake up at a reasonable hour. Let me tell you…teenage kids can sleep! I’ve got to get these guys on some type of schedule or the will sleep the summer away.
So, I’ve started by having my kids make some summer fitness goals.
My daughter’s goal is to get back into running shape for the cross-country season. She ran last year for the first time and did very well. My girl is very competitive! She will kick it into high gear to keep someone from passing her in that last 100 yards. Not wanting to get beat is enough to want to train harder.
My son’s is to workout and build muscle. He has been doing P90x3. He is super committed to completing this program. He will stay up late just to get that workout in. It must be the age, but all of his friends seem to be obsessed with getting stronger and more muscular. He’ll be in great shape for soccer season.
I set a couple of goals of my own. One is to finally finish decorating and unpacking our house. We moved in and unpacked our boxes, but not everything is as organized as I like.
I have also made it a goal to teach both my kids to cook an entire meal for the family. They will plan, shop, and prepare one meal a week. I’ll let you know how that goes 😀
Hopefully, it goes just as smooth as this Orange Mango Smoothie. I saw this combination at Starbuck’s and knew I could do it better 😀
I combine a clementine, fresh mango, banana, ground flax, and vanilla protein powder. Then blend that with some water and ice and it is amazing! I love this smoothie after a good workout. These bright, fresh flavors are sure to leave you feeling re-charged!
