JPIII Ready for some football!

James deciding to play football this year.  He played flag football when he was around 8 or 9.  The very beginning of the season he injured his knee during practice.  After seeing an orthopedic,  therapy and some rehabilitative hardware (knee brace) he’s playing again.

They’ve had a phenomenal season.  So far they’re #1 in the State.

And if they win the next two games, these boys will be going to Florida to play ball.

Tonight was another night of practice and it was so COLD!

Thankfully I was able to sit in the car with Jala and stay warm.

Next game is Sunday and I hope these fellas are ready for some football.

Until then, this kid will get his sleep.

Mama Minute: What’s in my Football Mom Cooler Bag on Practice Days?

This week’s Mama Minute… What’s in my Football Mom Cooler Bag on Practice Days. Taking a cooler bag on practice day is beneficial for many reasons and here’s my top 3 reasons.

1. Saves you money
2. We know what our children are eating.
3. They can replenish right after practice.

  I make sure I carry something in the cooler bag for everyone. Practice is a couple ours and in order to make sure I’m not spending money on unnecessary items like, water, snacks and food, I pack something for everyone. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought my daughter food out and she doesn’t eat everything. Such a waste.

For mom:
I pack a drink and something to eat. Snack bar, soup yogurt or sandwich.
For the football player:
On practice days I have my son drink water, sandwiches and a couple snacks. He’s always so hungry after practice.
For my daughter:
I pack her a sandwich too, a couple snacks, fruit and a small drink. My goal is to limit our public restroom use EWWWW.

Hope you received some great tips by taking a look in my practice cooler bag. Do you carry a cooler bag to your child’s practice and what’s in it?

Help Mama Get Fit: Workout week update

Last week’s workout goals were a success!  I went to the fitness center 3 days and accomplished a 30 minute workout each day.  It was straight to the point with no time to play.

This week will be a little different because of the holiday.  More than likely I’ll have to go 2 days in a row due to the fitness center being closed on Monday.

That was my workout week. Quick and to the point. Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day!

My hardcore rap playlist motivates my workout

Don’t judge me 😉 The past few weeks of my workout having been boring and dreaded.  I go to our neighborhood fitness center, which I LOVE and I often get caught up chatting with some other ladies about recipes and grocery stores.  Go figure.   However,  I find myself looking at the time on the elliptical constantly.

Unless I’m listening to my hardcore rap playlist on 10.  That’s when I’m in the rhythm and I flow straight through my workout in no time at all.  That’s the way it feels to me anyway.  

I also weighed in this morning… I was scared that I may have gained 5 lbs.  I’m not a heavy eater, but a heavy snacker. Heavy! I tell you! Heavy!   That also depends on the time of month it is.  To my surprise I was still at 190 🙂 Whew!

So, the moral of the story is…. listen to hardcore rap while working out and stop talking about recipes and grocery stores 😉
