It's been awhile

It's been crazy here in this house. We started home schooling in November. With my oldest doing online Homeschooling, and my middle son learning from me each day. So this leaves me pretty busy during the weeks now.  So far it feels like we are doing alright with it. The kids seem to like it better than public school. They get lots of interaction still with their Karate class four to five days a week. One 
Recently I started a new healthy way of living. Green Smoothies! In a few days I've dropped a pound, hopefully still shedding more. So far two days at the gym and while I skipped the gym yesterday, I did do a little workout at home before everyone was up.  I have  a goal, before my birthday, I will be pre-kids weight. The last three days I have had nothing but green smoothies for breakfast and lunch and a salad for dinner. Tonights salad, shrimp salad! I'm going to try and stick to this for at least a week.

I have also given up my starbucks drink. However I am not completely cutting out coffee, just the high calorie drink that I have been getting over the holidays. It's amazing I didn't gain more than five pounds when I finally realized how many calories is in a Caramel Brulee Latte and a venti at that. But oh they tasted ohhhh so good. So luckily most Starbucks are out of it, so the temptation to not order it should be easily fought. I just have to remind myself of my goal.

I have also gotten my little ones on this kick. They are now asking me for Smoothies in the morning. Fresh fruit smoothies, with no additions to it, like sugar, or even cows milk. And for the most part, they are drinking them.

This morning we woke up to snow, so it's been rather hard to keep them on track with wanting to learn today, but we will!
