So here we are, the first Monday back to work of the new year. Fortunately, we had already started going to the gym while the kids were on winter break---because adding school transportation to the morning routine can be a challenge. But challenges aren't nuffin if we don't try to face them and stick out our tongues. So I got up a bit earlier, helped take care of the animals and raced to the gym. What?!?!?!?! my watch hates me. So, I had to cut back on the workout to 20 minutes so that I could manage a shower before running back home and taking Nollie to school. [because of course, it was too late to get him to the bus stop.] *
All is well, though. I try to focus on getting a 'good' workout in the time frame that I have as opposed to just doing time in the gym. At intervals, I would increase my speed and I always keep a minimal of a 3 incline. [I noticed that it has to be at a 3 incline in order for the cardio to trigger on the machine]. Just over a mile in under 20 minutes. Not bad for the chick that had the machine tell me that I was "well below average" on the fitness test 2 weeks ago.
Everyone made it to school or work without any loss of life or limb. But we are well on our way to loss of weight.
I hope that your Monday, no matter how hectic the schedules may be, turn into pleasant moments of rewarding conquest.
