3.45mile walk with the boys
5.4 mile run – longest run since my ankle got hurt.
TIU Thailand Tush x2
It felt sooooo good to not have to get up early on Saturday. Bummed that Gio’s team didn’t make it to the championship game but I thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in. Relieved that baseball season is over. Gio is playing tournament but it won’t be as hectic as the season. Tournament weekends will be crazy but they will be spread out and not every week.
Made up any missed TIU workouts and tried to stay active with the kids. They did well on the walk. It’s the longest walk they’ve done in a while. Took the swimming for 2hrs on Sunday. I thought I could jump in and swim, but it did not work out well. As soon as I started to kick, my ankle started to hurt. I was in the deep end and and had to keep myself from panicking because I was in the middle and had to get to the side. It hurt a lot to kick but I had to to get to the wall. Obviously, I made it but I was really scared. I limped to the chair and sun bathed for the rest of the time. I did go back in the shallow end just to cool off because it was sooo hot out. Ankle was swollen for the rest of the day :-(
I did go out earlier in the day for my long run but it was already hot by the time I went out. My ankle was fine. I don’t usually do well running in the heat but I was happy with how I did. Definitely have to check the weather the night before so I can make sure to get out before it gets too hot.
Really focusing on my nutrition this coming week and staying hydrated.
When is my weekend not busy? Even though I took a rest day on Saturday from working out, it was still a jam packed day. I did enjoy sleeping in for a little bit Saturday morning. It was nice until the boys started fighting. I made them breakfast: banana/egg pancakes with maple syrup and chicken apple sausage. I had the same :-) Meals Saturday were a bit sporadic. Boys had games at the same time so I was back and forth for half of Gio’s game. His team had their first round of playoffs. I usually take a ton if pics but this game, I sat with the other moms and enjoyed the snacks one of the ladies brought. I enjoyed hummus, crackers, carrots, and fruit. It was a stressful game with us being down 4runs through the first 4innings. The 4th and 5th innings were great for us and we won 7-4!!! After having lunch (quinoa and 3fried eggs) we headed out to the Great Mall. We walked through the whole thing. It took us at over an hour. We stopped and got Gio some new shoes at Nike. I got a pair too :-) We also picked up more hand soaps. Be picked up new shoes. The only person who didn’t want anything or asked for anything was Seppe. He was such a good boy. All he wanted to do was see the Godzilla movie. We got home late Saturday and I almost didn’t make dinner because I was so worn out. I made Trader Joes Orange Chicken then fell asleep on the couch. It happened to be the first day of my period and I am always extremely fatigued. It was probably one the few nights I was in bed before 11p.
I got up Sunday morning ready to do my long run. My legs felt great. They were pretty sore Saturday and I was glad that giving them a rest helped make them feel better. My new Asics felt much better after the first couple miles. I guess they just needed to be broken in first. I’m not use to that because my usual running shoes feel great right away. I’m glad these shoe worked out because I really like them. My run went great. We had a fun day planned for the boys after Gio’s practice but Gio almost ruined it with his bad attitude. Seppe was so upset with Gio because he thought we were going to cancel taking him to see his movie. Luckily Gio got his act together and we went into the city to watch the Godzilla movie. Yes, I had popcorn and chocolate raisins. Ben survived on water and his Ensure juice. Poor guy. Seppe loved the movie. No dinner Sunday because we were all stuffed from the junk at the theaters. I did a round of BikiniBody and my plank before taking a long shower and heading to bed.
Another busy weekend. I am so grateful for Ben’s dad, Gene for being here. I don’t think I would have survived without his help.
Ben was still in the hospital Saturday. I had stayed until midnight on Friday with him and I went back to the hospital first thing Sat morning. He was looking better and walking around but still in a lot of pain. I had to pick up snacks for the boys’ baseball games, then went to Seppe’s game. Seppe was bummed Ben couldn’t be there. We had lunch then I dropped Seppe off at a birthday party and Gene took Gio to hospital to visit with Ben. We hung out until Gio’s game. I had to leave early to pick Seppe up from the party but I also had snack duty. Gene was able to stay and help hand out snacks and took Gio to visit Ben.
Ben wanted come home Sat night but they wanted to keep him another night. I went back to stay with him after I put the boys to bed. I did yoga and my plank before heading back to the hospital. Ben fell asleep soon after they have him more pain meds.
I got home late and fell asleep quickly but got woken up a couple hours later by Seppe. His stomach hurt and he wound up throwing up. He slept with me and it was not that comfortable. I got up to run but I was too tired so I decided to rest for the morning. Boys made me gifts for Mother’s Day. Seppe made a recipe book with recipes from all the continents and Gio a necklace. He later made me a journal to write in. They were both pretty good for me.
I went to the hospital after getting up to pick Ben up. We waited an hour for them to discharge him. He’s happy to be home. We set up the air mattress in the living room so he could lay down without having to turn his neck to see the tv. We had issues getting his prescription from the pharmacy. He got the hospital to sort it out. He’s doing well minus being cranky because he can’t eat anything besides broth and juice :-(
I went on a long run after my nap. Had a tummy ache at the half way point but I was able to finish. It was really windy out but it actually felt great. The run really helped make me feel better. I was feeling stressed out from the weekend. Plank to end my night. Ben is going to be home for a few weeks so I should be able to get my workouts in.
Meals weren’t that great this weekend. I skipped some meals and did not stay hydrated. I was just trying not to go crazy. Yoga and running helped me. I’m just glad that Ben is finally home and that I don’t have to go to the hospital anymore.
Spent Mother’s Day with my boys. Called my mom and had a nice talk. I’m grateful for all her sacrifices. I might not have agreed with her decisions but I know that if she hadn’t made them, I wouldn’t have the life I have.
