Where's the Energizer Bunny when you need him?

What a hectic weekend!!! Having family and friends stay over really takes it out of you, doesn't it? I am so tired, yet today I have to do laundry, clean up and prep food for the week ahead to save cooking time. Eventually I will have to make an effort to spend time with my kids and see to it that all their school stuff are ready for tomorrow. Hopefully I will get in some exercise during all this or perhaps later tonight. I did not exercise a stitch this weekend so my energy levels are dot gone! I don't have energy to do anything (let alone exercise), yet the only way to get my energy back is to exercise. It's a dilemma bigger than Belle's saga in Twilight.

время (Time)...never enough of it every day. Especially for us moms trying to look younger and live longer. It's a full time job on it's own. There are supplements, vitamins, lotions and potions (twice a day by the way). Then there are healthy meals to prepare and exercises to do. Doing all this whilst having two needy, absent minded kids in Primary school, working full time and running a household  is tricky at best. Trying to fit this into a busy schedule is like trying to fit an elephant into a bath tub!!!

BUT, there's no time for excuses either. Better to get things done quickly, so we can fit in some mommy time.

Why do we do this? Because we LOVE too much. We love our family too much to die young. We love our homes too much to let it become a sink hole of trash and desease. We love our kids too much to let them down.
So we work hard, take care of ourselves, eat healthy and do exercises. This makes us feel complete.

After all is said and done everyday, the sense of well being and that all is right in the world returns. Energy levels have increased. Calm and order is restored. All the effort paid off.

Peace of mind and true happiness is just a chore away.
