I am just a couple days away from completing 30 Day Shred workout with the lovely Jillian Michaels, she is tough and yes that is my sarcasm, because I love doing it, not really, just thankful I can! It hasn't been easy staying on track with it, some days I love to just do something easy, however this workout gets my heart rate up and builds strength, which I didn't realize I was lacking so much of but I was, now pushups and squats are not so challenging anymore. So yes, it does pay off!! My tip, don't give up, make a new habit, be dedicated, find your why for doing it and you too can do it!! Also find something you like to do for exercise, I really don't like the workout, but it is only 20 minutes!
This week we finished week 21 of school, science has been interesting as we have been learning about the body, how it works, and the senses. We also have been reading some great books: Twenty and Ten, Johnny Appleseed, Little House, and Chance of Meatballs. Spelling words are getting tougher, but she likes the challenge. Since the weather was so beautiful this week, Abigail got back to horse lessons. She has so much more confidence on the horse now! We are looking into adding in piano lessons soon!
We also decided to put up our Valentine's tree! I love Valentine's one of my favorite holidays, because I love what it represents, LOVE!! 1 John 4:19 We love each other because He loved us first.
Here are some snapshots of the week:
