"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that."
This week, the habit of posting small successes actually led directly to one of my accomplishments (see #1 below)! I even jumped out of bed one night to make sure I would finish what I had started. Enough suspense, here's my list:
- I lifted weights every single day. As I mentioned last week, Len developed a short (7 exercises, 20 reps each) routine for me. The amount I'm lifting is miniscule, but it's enough work (I can feel it) that I know I'm going to get stronger. I've only increased the weight for one set, but more will come in time.
- Marianna and I set up and hosted her latest tea party. It made for some mother-daughter bonding time as well as hospitality training.
- I survived the first full week of school carpooling in northern Virginia, complete with soccer, violin, tae kwon do, and an orthodontist appointment. I don't think I complained, either. Now next week, when our homeschooling starts up in earnest, I'll likely need a little more self-control. :-)
