Oh my gosh…today has been perfection. First, I slept until 9:30 a.m. for a whopping total of 10 hours of sleep last night. Life changed.
Second, I had an entire day with nowhere I had to be and nothing I had to do and it felt awesome. I didn’t put on makeup and stayed in pajamas most of the day. It was warm and sunny so I spent a lot of time on my grandmother’s porch working building a website for a new venture a friend and I am launching soon. I am really bad about carving time out for big picture stuff like this so it was great to have a day to dedicate to it.
I definitely got my love for random “a little of this, a little of that” lunches from my grandmother. Chicken salad, pimento cheese, apples, crackers and cheese.
And I cooked a simple but good dinner tonight. Rice, chicken, kale sprouts and cornbread muffins.
After spending most of the day sitting, I needed to break to move my body before dinner.
I hadn’t done any strength/circuit training this week so I wanted to get some bodyweight stuff in. I ran 2.3 miles and then ended up at the park where I did the following circuit.
After I finished I ran another mile home. It was a great little workout and nice to do it all outdoors.
The highlight of the experience was having four little kids join me for my workout. The park was pretty crowded because it was such a nice day. There were a few little kids running around while their dads were playing basketball. First they started mimicking what I was doing and then they started counting with me and getting really into it. They asked me what else I taught and I told them yoga. They’d never heard of yoga and were eager to try it so we did some yoga a the end. Their moms thanked me for keeping them busy! 🙂
Okay, here are the rest of my workouts for the week. Very light on the strength/HIIT. Wasn’t feeling it.
3 mile run + hot yoga
3 mile run
3.3 mile run
3.5 mile run + Park Circuit Workout
Off to continue relaxing, hanging with my grandmother and enjoy one more night of luxurious no alarm sleep!
