Here you go. Yesterday in all of its glory. I did not work nearly as many hours (simply did not have it in me!) and used some break time in between meetings for rest and personal things like meditation and a (short) walk with Annabel who was home sick.
(Yes, we are dealing with more viral #@*#& in our house. 2/3 have been COVID tested and were negative, so thankfully it is not that! The other has not been tested because logic would suggest they have exactly what the others had given very similar symptoms and timing).
((Times like these are when I am so incredibly grateful to still have full time childcare. Clearly we still need it!))
1- I canceled my Beachbody membership because I really do like the Peloton workouts. I know. I figure I can always go back. I am actually focusing more on running right now (and seeing some mild improvements!) and so I’m not really looking for a strength ‘program’ per se but rather workouts to do 2-3x/week. I have been honestly impressed with the quality of the instruction and specifically the yoga!
Right now I am aiming for 4 runs (2 with speed/tempo portions), 2 strength days, and 1 yoga recovery day (on the weekend). The online Peloton access is $13/month which is similar to what I was paying for Beachbody.
(My Peloton “name” is theSHUbox. Thankfully not taken yet 🙂 )
2- KID BEDTIME is a focus right now. It has been a mess. However, last night I had them ALL IN BED AT 8 PM. It was nothing short of a miracle. The important part was getting everyone upstairs early (like 7:20) . . . imagine that. We read 3 books for G and then half a chapter of Harry Potter, and I was out of there. I am hoping this leads too less grumpiness in the morning. It was definitely good for MY mental health and patience!
