Mom– Let’s see; since Friday what have I done as a mom?? More, like what haven’t I done?!??! 😉 I wish I did something so memorable that I could remember. But, I can’t. Maybe we did, but my memory has not been the best since I had them. Their fault. As usual. Sunday I took the kids to get Halloween costumes. No luck. I am trying to get them NOW since Matt and I love to procrastinate. So, naturally I am so all over this stuff early and we had no luck. We did have luck buying Miles winter boots ( notice, I am early once again..I refuse to go out in a snow storm at 11pm to get boots only to find out the boots are too small and that school was cancelled–NOT that that ever happened). I also got Amara 2 pairs of jeans and a pair of leggings. All of her pants are high waters. That is a big pet peeve of mine. Call me vein or whatever, but I think it’s dorky. I roll her too short pants up to make capri’s. That is not dorky. 😉 Amara brought home a folder full of homework for this week. We went over math flash cards tonight. She did great! She is stressed…she’s in 2nd grade. 😦
Miles is officially a big boy. 😦 🙂 He is in a booster seat. He still has a bit of trouble buckling himself in fast enough, but he is getting there. He even got a big boy hair cut on Sunday. There was a sad pile of curls on our kitchen floor. I forgot to take pictures so that will have to wait.
Today after school the kids and I ran a few errands….you know a grocery store run because the dog ate a pound of almonds and a new bag of rice cakes. I heard him crying at 3 am. So I woke Matt up to see what the problem was….. good thing because there was almost a problem all over the kitchen floor! Crazy dog. He is old. Almost 8 on the 18th. After the errands we went to the park to feed the geese. Good thing I keep frozen buns and bread butts in my purse.
Wife~ Matt and I never made it to the movies or to dinner. BUT we all made it to The Omelette Shoppe for breakfast on Sunday. It was carb heaven. I had a hard time deciding what to order so I got the special. The Dessert French Toast. Yep. It was not a breakfast. It was like a cinnamon roll on steroids. Sprinkled with a bit of meth. It was too much. I left about 4 bites on my plate. Amara went with the Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes. These were the best pancakes I ever ate. For real. Not as sweet as I thought they would be. This might be our new breakfast joint since Perkin’s closed down 😦 It was our “tradition” to go to Perkin’s after the 25k in May. I think I am set for carbs for the week. I could say I am carb loading for the marathon, but I’m not running one. Matt also spent Saturday processing a deer. I am on a deer strike these days. I am not sure why. I sometimes get grossed out with red meat in general. No real reason besides a few times a year it makes my stomach churn just thinking about it. But who really just thinks about red meat?? That would be weird…..
Fitness~ Friday part II! Spin class at the new Spartan Y. It was a lot of fun…well, after I panicked and had a member help me figure out the stereo ( Thanks Kevin). I had a plan and it went out the window! Sometimes you just have to do that…after learning that 2 maybe 3 of the 6 people in class were new, I changed it up. I tried to make it beginner friendly but also needed to challenge my expert’s! I hope I did that! It was fun and new and I kinda like change ( when it’s the good kind). I never got to lift on Friday. Boooo!
Saturday~ a nice 10 mile run. And by nice I mean that I was glad it was only 10. 5-6 would have been even nicer. My stomach was all kinds of jacked up. I think my breathing was fine at least. Well, I hope my good running streak is not over. Sunday– OFF! Much needed.
Monday- spin at 10 am. I had a packed class today. I only had 3 open bikes! I found it strange because it was in the 70’s today at that time..I would have been outside given the chance! I am not complaining tough, I love a packed class. Strength today. Lots of climbing and power pushes up those inclines. I used some new music too. Thanks Andi! It was just what I needed. I used this version on Pumped Up Kicks today….I love it. Thanks Matt for this one! Check this dude out….
I think the class liked this version except for the lady that asked me to turn it down..as if lady. 😉 Totally Toned was at 12 noon. We did a nice little repeating circuit..first set was 20 reps then 10 then 20 for the first circuit. 2nd circuit was 1 minute of 5 exercises 2nd time through was 12 reps and back to the 1 minute of work the 3rd time. They might have worked up a tiny sweat. I try to keep the sweat minimal since they have to go back to work…
No lifting for me today. I have a busy week ahead of me
Monday— spin and Totally Toned
Tuesday— Healthy Bodies and Cardio Sculpt
Wednesday— Muscle and Movement and Spin
On tap for Tuesday: I just old ya! Healthy Bodies and Cardio Sculpt in case you missed it…
Life~ I still have to call the doctor about my breathing and all that. I a still procrastinating. I will call this week. Yes I will!!! 🙂 That is probably one of my biggest stresses
besides Matt in my life this week, so I am pretty lucky.
