Hello again! I’m back with some good things. When you’re really sleep deprived, thinking about good things helps you from biting your family members’ heads off. (Adam is still getting up multiple times per night, so if anyone has baby sleep tips for me, please leave them in the comments section.) As for the good things – here we go!
1 – Workouts have been fun lately. I’m complete most of them during nap times, which feels great. I started doing the Tone It Up Bikini Series to keep things interesting. The pros: short workouts, easy to do at home, very motivating. The cons: my body doesn’t respond quite as well to that type of training, and my flat feet really can’t handle that many lunges and plank variations. In fact, for feet’s sake, I may be quitting the program or modifying soon.
2 – I love racing. Running is okay, but it’s really just the racing I love. I have signed up for another 5k, which is in about two weeks. Fingers crossed for good racing conditions because I want a PR! (Well, I don’t expect to out-run my high school cross country times, but a post-college PR would be pretty awesome.)
4 – Breweries! I’ve kind of been on a wine kick lately, well, my first choice is usually ice cream, but then wine. However, there’s nothing like a cold beer fresh from the source, especially if the source has a great family-friendly patio on a beautiful sunny day.
5- Reading children’s books to my boys is always a good thing. Newer favorites include, Those Pesky Rabbits, Bear Says Thanks, Good Night Good Night Construction Site, and Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. Old favorites are good too, like The Napping House, Are You My Mother, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Go Dog Go.
