One week down...11 to go & Happy Mothers Day

I have officially completed an entire week of p90x. I am still standing....well swaying is more like it. I most definitely am sore, but I am happy about it - it means it's working, right? Saturday was Yoga X day and I hated every second of it. I am addicted to cardio so stretching for an hour isn't exactly my thing, you know? The video was a flippin' hour and a half long too. Who decided it should be more than an hour like the other videos? I don't know but I don't like him/her. I am pretty sure that I am the only one on the planet who can make mental checklists in her head and have mean thoughts about her yoga instructor all while deep breathing and stretching at the same time. I was so thankful when it was over. I should add that I can only dream about my body one day being flexible enough to actually perform most of the stretches in the video. Oh well - you gotta start somewhere. Yesterday was Kenpo X and Chelsea was game to try it with me. We did giggle like little teenagers at some parts but for the majority of the 60 minute video we were in it to when it and you could tell afterwards by how drenched we were. It was a killer workout that left both of us spent. Unfortunately after Kenpo we needed to do Ab Ripper X again. We vowed to be more serious than last time and really try to do the moves. Well - we had good intentions but the reality is we just aren't strong enough to do what all is in that video - it is killer! I am just hoping I get stronger and stronger and the result of that will be being able to do some of these seemingly impossible things as I get more into the program. This morning was back and legs and I just want to say it's painful to put on pants, to tie shoes, to put on earrings - I hurt all over. I had planned to go a full week through after missing a video last week but I don't know if my body can take it. We'll see.

My weekend wasn't all work and no play though. Saturday night Janine graduated from PT school @ University of Kentucky - Go Neenie! Not only did she graduate - she was honored with an award from her professors. I am so proud of her and so happy for her. She has worked very hard and I am glad this chapter of her life is over for her and she can move on (she was really sick of studying). It was great to see she and Josh - we have missed them terribly since they moved to Benton, Kentucky. She and Josh are vacationing and then she will return for some more class but after that she is gone for good. It is a bittersweet thing for me. I am happy for her that she will be with Josh and she will be working and doing what she loves but I am sad that she won't just be a hop, skip and jump away any more and this time it's final. Anyhow - here are some pictures from before and after the graduation.
Tim, Chelsea and I went to church yesterday and had lunch at Rafferty's on the patio (it was gorgeous out). We had some awesome salads and then after our workout we filled up the pool for Kennedy and relaxed which is something I rarely do and usually when I try I don't succeed. I just stared at my beautiful baby and felt thankful that I get to be her Mommy. Motherhood is a beautiful thing - there's nothing else like it. Happy late Mother's Day!

Does my girl know how to work a "babysoup" (as she calls them), or what?
