Why May is CRAZY

In the month of May.. there are birthdays and first Communions and Mothers Day and and and and...
Andrew, Jeremiah and Nicholas all got their First Communion and Juan and I, as the catechism teachers finished (silent YEAH).

Andrew Celebrated his 10th Birthday..How did that happen???
I don't know how to rotate this..LOL roll with it.
My Sweet niece came over and I took tons of pics of her...check her out in her cute dress glory.
So much more happened, but this is all the energy I have to finish this. Stay tuned for more pics!

So I joined a CULT...

Seriously..I am addicted! It really is no surprise since I love to workout and I love to be beat down in said workout. I simply will not workout hard enough on my own and I crave the competition! My friend Bridget and I started in March and made a commitment to go at least 2 times a week and to make the time for ourselves. Between the two of us we have 9 kids, so this is no easy feat. We started off going 2 times a week and dying and now we have been going 3 times a week and actually get grumpy when we aren't there..well at least I do. Sometimes as women and mothers we have to MAKE the time for ourselves because no one else will. After doing it for over 2 months I can say that I now really find that being STRONG is the new Sexy and that I feel AWESOME!
Since starting we have "tricked" my brother into you can see by our picture after a really tough workout.. and Bridget's son Austin is also going...and kicking our butts! I feel like I have found my groove and my new workout forever..or at least until September and School and Football start :(
and even though I almost always feel like the girl above..I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!!

Exercise and other stuff...

So, I have been working out..hard...really hard and I'm definitely starting to see the results. Things have tightened up and lifted and I'm proud to say that I am now the proud owner of not 2 but only 1 butt. Yes, I'm serious, the top butt is gone and in its place is a smaller, lower booty. Since March 4, I have probably done something like 4,000,000 squats and push-ups and bear crawls but its worth it. Funny thing is, now that I'm exercising I'm ADDICTED!!! Seriously, addicted like "if I don't go to CrossFit I will eat my young!" addicted. Crossfit is mommy's happy place and heck, it's better than a bar?? right?? In fact, with all this energy I feel like wonder Woman!
Okay, well maybe not Wonder Woman, but close! the Energy I have is out of this world! So one night after an extremely tough workout, I came home and decided to paint the bathroom because I wanted a teal bathroom. I blame Pinterest.
Came out pretty good huh??? So back to the point. My workout partner is Bridget and she really keeps me in line and on track. Between the two of us we have 9 kids and we still manage to get there and get it done every week!
Last night we had a really tough workout and we were able to run 2 miles, looking like rockstars I'm sure!

So that is probably how we really looked! So that's all! Here is a pic of me now and hopefully in the next picture I'll be skinnier and stronger!
