Here's what I've got for the past 4 days.
I have to say, this week has thrown me off a bit. I have been spoiled by my routine for the past lots of months, and one mis-step and I was way off kilter.
Kent went on a trip for 3 days. That's it, just 3 days. It was, however, enough to make me lazy for some reason! It wasn't like I could get up early before the kids got up and go for a run. If I did that, then I'd be just like the crazy lady who left her kids alone to go running! ( Do people do that? Gawd, I hope not!) (Obviously if your kids are old enough it's fine...when are they old enough for that?...anyway)
I had an internal dilemma. On Monday, I told myself I'd do my Insanity workout when Jordan took her nap. Guess what, Drew and I watched a movie instead. No, wait it wasn't a movie, it was the new Disney Jr. channel. Not bad.
On Tuesday, I said, "No matter what, I'm working out during nap time. That's it. Get your act together!" All 3 of us took a 3 hour nap.
On Wednesday, I said, "This is the last straw. After the kids go to bed, do something besides eat Vanilla Wafers!" After the kids went to bed, I realized I had a headache the size of freaking Texas. So I went to bed too.
That was it! And, all the way back to Sunday, I went to a buffet for brunch on Easter. A really nice one, and a really good one. I'm a rest on the holidays kind of workout-er.
Today, I went for a run, darn it! Of course, I had to take Princess J with me. I couldn't just leave her for 45 minutes after having her
Anyway, the run felt good, and I learned a lot about what shapes the clouds were making at the moment, how you can get more energy if you just close your eyes for one little second instead of taking a whole nap, and did you know that birds fly around because they don't want to step on dog poo? I didn't either. Very interesting.
Tomorrow, the plan is to get in a nice, long, relaxing run. Maybe even by myself! I can't wait!!
