Memorial, Lacking Motivation, Mula

The Sunday before Memorial Day we had a little barbecue with my parents. It was really nice. Mark felt sick when we left and was sick for the next day. We had planned to go to Wheeler Farm and Chase was super excited about it. So Kiera, Chase, Emmett, and I left Daddy at home and we went by ourselves. Chase really wanted to see the pigs. Emmett slept half of the time. Chase got to pet a horse and some goats. The Farm is smaller than I remember. Of course the last time I went was when I was in Elementary school, so lots of things seemed huge. It got lots of video and some pictures for Mark, since he couldn't join us. I'd post some, but I have a hard time getting the pics where I want them on these posts. Plus our computer has issues and I haven't been able to use it for over a month. I've been using Kiera's laptop. Sad thing is, she plans to move out the end of this month, so I'll be without. Unless we can come up $400 to get a new computer.
I'm trying really hard to work out everyday. I wrote out a schedule of what exercise I want to do each day. I haven't done a very good job at it. I want to loose weight, it's just that the best time for me to do it is at night after the boys have gone to bed, but I also want to spend that time as quality time with Mark and just relax after the day. And I don't want to stay up super late. Any motivation tips???
Mark got a raise at work, now we are just hoping to hear that he got the promotion too, because that is an even bigger raise. But Mark doesn't know when they will tell him. The car is almost paid off. It'll be paid off in the next couple of months!!!

Great news about Mark. I have EXACTLY the same problem with working out that you do.... by the time I CAN, I want to relax with David. I LOVE to walk/run at sunset.... and that's the easiest time since kids are in bed (or close) and David's home. But that's also when I am ready to call it a day.

I have to discipline myself to do my workout first thing in the morning. otherwise, I just don't get around to it. Try getting up just 30 minutes early and telling Mark that if the boys need something during that 30 minutes,it's his job to help out.
Congrats on the raise for Mark! Hopefully that promotion comes soon too.

Mark leaves for work just after 5, and he is only up long enough to shower, get dressed, maybe watched 5-10 minutes of tv then he's gone. So for that to work, I'd have to get up at 4:30. I could try doing that and try to go back to sleep afterwards.
