  • Exercise/ActivityWith my husband out of town this week, it’s going to be hard to get morning runs in.  I’m planning on tackling this by running with my little guy while my big kid is at school.  Of course – the little is sick so maybe this won’t happen.

  • Notes and findings: 
    • I have a serious sweet tooth this week – SERIOUS.  I need to stop indulging it no matter how many calories I burn in the day.
    • Running with my little guy while my big kid is in school is working out quite well.  I need to plan on that at least 1 of the school days each week.
    • I’ve come to realize that I just cannot put my kids in daycare at the Y unless it’s really necessary (meaning Tuesday nights for INSAN.ITY, Thursday morning for HEAT if my little isn’t napping, Friday nights for swim lessons, and other random times that I just need ‘me time.”).  I don’t want to dump the little guy there without his brother Mon-Wed because that’s supposed to be our special time together, and I can’t justify putting my big kid in there Mon-Wed after going to school all morning.  I can get behind 3 sessions a week per child, but not more than that.  It just doesn’t feel right to me (but that is just me – no judgment if it feels right to you!).
    • The double nap is working out so well for me!  I am doing some KILLER workouts in my garage while the kids nap – and I’m going longer and harder than I would in a class at the Y.
    • Cross training is ESSENTIAL for me.  When I only did kickboxing, I plateaued.  When I only ran, my body always felt a little broken.  Now that I’m doing INSA.NITY, running, kickboxing, and weights – all within the same week – my body is getting rest where and when needed and I’m shocking it a pit, helping to keep the inevitable plateau at bay!
    • This week is shaping up to be a very productive one, and I did not expect that.  I feel motivated!
    • I am super thrilled to be in the 24.X percents for body fat, but do know that I could bounce back up to the 25’s easily enough.
    • I got a terrible chest cold at the end of the week, and spent much of Saturday sleeping and resting.  I hated taking a day off, but it was for the best.
