I was thinking that my posts are very much all over the dang place. Should I pretend to be organized or should I post up as my brain functions…all over the place???
Mom- I was lucky to be woken up again this early morning by Miles. Wake up time? 3:45 am. Reason? I’m still not sure. He at least whispers (Amara has not learned the proper early morning whisper yet). I think he asked for a hug. I obliged and off to bed he went. Sometimes I have no idea what he is thinking. I got some more points (Mom points..there is such a thing) today and stopped by McDonald’s and got the kids ( Matt too) some chocolate chip cookies. Sometimes I do this when the kids have been exceptionally well-behaved. Or when they don’t complain about something somebody made for dinner/lunch/breakfast. I don’t dare tell them that is the reason though or I they will expect something every time they keep their trap shut. 😉 Amara had her 2nd quiz of the 2nd grade today. She passed! She was a little nervous again and this time it was because she thought she was not prepared. She admitted not reading her book as thoroughly as she should have ( her reason was because it was not as interesting as Black Beauty….ha). I just let her know that next time she might not be as lucky and to read what she needs to read for school first. She is a bit upset that I only allow her 5 books at the library and not the 10 -15 she was allowed to check out during the summer. I am such a mean mom.
Wife- None of your business! 😉 I did not make my husband dinner tonight. He is fishing all night. That is not a form of punishment. The kids and I still ate, they had turkey burgers and I had soup.
This category is difficult. Matt and I played Words With Friends today ( I should have been thinking about what to make dinner..haha). He used all of his letters on the first word on the board and scored 79 points. His word was TIMECARD. He beat me 327 to 303 ( I made a comeback..kinda).
Fitness- Tuesday– Kickboxing! It has been a minute since I did 40 minutes of continuous kickboxing in a class setting ( note to self: do it more). I had Healthy Bodies class at 12 noon. It was a lot of fun! ( they told me so!) We ended with all body weight exercises ( squats, lunges, planks, push ups, and lots more). Cardio Sculpt was at 4:15 PM. It was sort of a boot camp, circuit kind of class today. It involved burpees, stair runs, push ups, crab walks lunges and much more! 😉 They asked me if I was mad at them. Nope! I like to push this group because I know they can do it. And they did! Wednesday– I have not made any effort to get up at the crack of dawn this week so far. Spin at 10 am. Race day in spin class today. I cannot believe this month is almost over. I had a bigger class today (for a Wednesday). I had 15. I usually have less than 10- especially on a race day. I forgot
on purpose to mention on Monday that today was going to be a race…ooops! Sorry, I’m not sorry. It was a hilly race today. My average HR for class today was 163. I had moments in the mid 170’s and I forgot to take some puffs off my inhaler. All is well. I did not gasp for breath. Well, I did but not in a scary I can’t breath kind of way, but in a I am working very hard kind of way. There’s a big difference.
Life- I need to get one! 😉 Life is good. I really can’t complain. I might have some news ( good or bad?? Not sure..) on my vocal cord dysfunction. A good friend ( hello Nelly!!) gave me the number to somebody that might have some answers for me. I am hoping for the best, but really, I would just like a realistic conclusion so I can just
run fast again move on! Wish me luck!
New set up: yes/no- I have no opinion. 🙂
