My day? Started at 4:30am. I was all excited because Elsie had been asleep since 10pm (not that getting her to sleep was any easy task or anything), so I was thrilled for some consecutive hours of sleep. Except then she didn't want to go back to sleep. And then she was up again at 6:15. And then Ry came bounding out of her room at 6:30am. Even though sleep buddy was still on because woot! She wanted to be awake! Grrr. Since then the kids have only been asleep for about 30 minutes at the same time. So, uh, this mama is tired. And so is my mama. Cause we're at her house.
But good news on the fitness front this week. We made it back to the gym!
The only downside is that right now, getting there? Kinda stressful for me. Elsie just can't stay awake long enough for me to feed her, get us there, work out and get us home, and get Ry settled in doing something or what not. And she doesn't fall asleep, or stay asleep, in the carseat. So if we go to the gym she misses a nap. Of course I feel guilty about that, but its not like she likes napping anyway? I don't know. I'm sure we'll figure it out eventually, but going to the gym isn't quite as rewarding as it had been. Thankfully Elsie has done great in the childcare. The first day she was a bit fussy when I came back, but I wasn't surprised. She was tired. The other two times she was happy as could be.
I got in three runs totaling 9 miles, and one cross training workout. Hopefully I can keep my mileage around 9-10 miles a week until mid July, and then I really REALLY hope I can start training for some fall half marathons. Not 100% sure if I'll make it work, but I want to!
Now, the healthy eating? Not so hot this week. Still WAY better than I used to be, and better than I was in Georgia, but I've been caving to chocolate in the evenings. Usually just a handful of dark chocolate chips, but still. I had been doing SO good! I need to have some dessert alternatives on hand so that I'm not so tempted by the chocolate.
Ugh. Yawn. And now I'm going to go pass out in my bed. Link up your health and fitness related posts below!
