Had to be up at 5a today in order to get Ben to work by 6:30a since we only had one car until later. The boys did not want to get up and I didn’t blame them. I didn’t want to be up either. We gotta do what we gotta do. I wasn’t sure how traffic was going to be. I assumed the worse since it was a Monday so I had the boys get dressed and ready for school in case we wound up stuck in traffic. Luckily, we were just ahead of the rush hour traffic. It was slower traffic but it moved and we got home in time to relax a little bit. I decided to take the boys to Starbucks and get them breakfast. I haven’t gone grocery shopping in a while so my fridge is empty on breakfast items right now :-/
By this time the boys were fully awake with tons of energy. It was time to drop Gio off at school and take Seppe to speech therapy. After that we had to make a stop at the post office to drop off a couple pairs of shoes Ben had sold. I was pretty tired and so was Seppe so we wound up taking a nap :-) I got up to do my workout an hour later but I let Seppe sleep some more because he just looked so comfy and sweet.
——————————- Turbo Fire Day 22 ——————————–
It was Fire 45 today – I doubled checked to make sure that was what I was suppose to be doing :-) I think I like this one so much because I do so well with the first combo. It’s so much fun and you can definitely really get into it. There’s a lot of kicks in this one. My back kicks feel awkward so I have to work on those. I did the star jumps during the Fire Drill this time. I also did the tuck jumps. Stretch 10 always helps loosen me up.
I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do for my afternoon workouts. I was running behind because we had to pick Ben up and drop him off at the repair shop. By the time Gio was done with homework, it was almost time to start cooking dinner. I wound up doing Tone It Up’s Rush Workout (20 Reps each X 3 sets) and M100’s. Going to do a 2 minute plank before bed.
M1: Spinach and egg white breakfast wrap from Starbucks
M2: 1 clementine and a Luna bar
M3: Salad with spinach, chicken, carrots, and avocado. Tiny bit of Raspberry dressing.
M4: Almond Nut Thins and Olive Tapenade
M5: Panko Salmon and broccoli
Dessert: 5 dark chocolate almonds
80 oz. water
I feel that last week was super stressful and had me completely out of whack with my sleep. Even though I was able to workout – I know I could have done more if I hadn’t been so tired most of the time. This week and for the month of March, I really want to focus on pushing myself. I looked over my workout schedule and rearranged a few things. My long runs will be Wednesdays and I will adding more toning exercises. I will be working on doing my bootycall workouts. It’s starting to get lighter out earlier so I can go out for runs/walks first thing again :-) I also made a goal of drinking at least 80 oz. of water Everyday. I’m going to take it one day at a time. I know if I stay focused, I can reach my goals!
