I was tired when I got up. I didn’t want to get up but I did. I figured going for a walk would help wake me up and be better than doing nothing. It was already getting warm when I went for my walk so I knew it was going to be a hot day.
I wasn’t really in the mood to go to the gym but it was a leg day and I rarely skip working out my legs. I did a mini leg routine. I went heavy and more reps to make it worth it. I super set the leg press and squats. Really felt it in the booty. I picked out a treadmill at the end of a row so I could hop off to do the toning moves in between the running parts with the Making Waves cardio. I slowed it down to do the high knee skips and side shuffles. I think I like doing the running part all together and then the toning moves better. But going back and forth between running and toning made the running part a little easier.
Ben and I went into the city to pick up some shoes for Ben then picked up the boys from school. After homework, we went out to do more errands. I forgot to bring something for a snack. Took Gio to the library to get him books for his biography report. Picked up Panera for dinner. I ordered my usual salad but instead of getting a full salad, I only got a half. I didn’t have time to go back but I called and they gave me a free salad on my next visit.
Got to volleyball early to warm up. The coach finally picked up new balls. He gave away the old ones and I took one for the boys to play with. Not that in don’t have one – I have two – but this way I don’t have to worry about the, messing mine up :-). It was an ok night. My overhand serving is becoming more consistent. Passing was better. I set a few games which is tiring because there is a ton of running around. I want to work on my setting so I can use my hands more instead of just bump setting. I can do it but I’m not confident during a game. Had some good hits but I still need to get my timing down.
Left early so I could do Bikini Booty and my plank when I got home. Legs were pretty tired even with my lighter leg workout. I came close to my water goal. I try to at least get half my body weight but I make a higher goal because it helps me. Staying hydrated is one of my biggest challenges. It is something I work on everyday.
The Sunset Challenge for creativity is this post. Writing/blogging is something I love to do. It helps me process things and express myself. I’ve always been into writing. I think most writers hope to make a connection with their readers. I don’t do this blog to get a bunch of followers. I don’t even know if people even like what I write. I do this because I am hoping that someone can relate to it and if I can help one person not feel so alone, I consider myself a success. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my posts :-)
