Momentary Lapse in Sanity

I had such a good morning. I dropped the kids off at school and headed to the gym where I did 45 mintues of upper body workout then I did my 7 for 7 abs workout, then to top it off I did 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. I came home and cleaned the house and then headed off to the kids school to volunteer for a few hours. All was going well until about 6:30 when I had a little break down... long story short, I started a new birth control pill and it made me CRAZY! It's called Seasonique and consider yourself warned. Anyway, I will stop taking it and put it behind me. Tomorrow is a new day and I will make it a great one.

  1. Natalie--you are amazing!
    I am not 100% yet, but I tried to go to the gym this week. Holy crap! It was hard!

    I had an idea....what if we make this a group blog, so we can all give each other our input.
    All you have to do is add people as administrators.
    What do you think?
