Happy Father's Day to all of you wonderful SparkDaddies out there!!
I really wish I could see mine today, but hopefully will be able to Skype with him later tonight. As for the other Dads in my life - we will meet up with my brother this afternoon, and Brad already chatted on the phone with his this morning.
I got up nice and early this morning, with the intent of getting to the gym when it opened at 8AM. I am *finally* getting back into a Burn phase - I was getting so bored of the Build phase! This is especially great because with my recent low energy days, as long as I get my 3 strength circuits in a week, they count both as cardio and strength! Bonus!
I needed to be at the gym as close to 0800 as possible because a fitness class starts at 0915 - and I use the Group Ex room for the space and equipment to set up my circuit. I got up, had a great healthy breakfast, and made it to the gym to start my workout at 0810. Booyeah!
After a 5 minute elliptical warm-up, I hit the (taped on the carpet, thanks to my old trainer!) agility ladder for 11 minutes of drills (90sec on, 90sec off). Then set up my circuit. I love my HIIT circuits.
If someone said I could only have one style of exercise for the rest of my life- that would be it!!
I get home, and Brad is still in bed. He worked 80 hours this week, so he needed the sleep-in. He was actually chatting with his Dad on the phone while still resting. So I went upstairs to the kitchen and got busy! Of course, I had my post-workout snack first.
Then I cooked him breakfast. Kind of a pre-Father's Day (since we are trying) /you've had a long week reward. So Grace was in the kitchen!
And I managed not to burn anything down *OR* give him food poisoning!
Smoothie: OJ, banana, peach, raspberries, greek vanilla yogurt
toast with margarine
cereal with milk
flavored coffee with milk and sugar.
I have never cooked fried eggs in my life haha. I eat scrambled if I make them! Brad likes fried so I had to try! They turned out okay, apparently! I actually managed to time everything so the eggs and coffee were still hot, cereal not mushy, and smoothie not separated. Go me!
It was *so* weird cooking/prepping food without measuring and weighing everything. A little freedom, but nervewracking at the same time!
He was very happy to get breakfast in bed. I just went and cleaned up my mess in the kitchen while he takes a nice long shower (20 mins is considered an express shower for him!) and then we are going to go find somewhere pretty to take a nice long, slow walk. I want the time outside, and his muscles need a slow stretch out.
Have a beautiful Father's Day! Celebrate someone in your life who is an awesome Dad, or will hopefully have the potential soon to be one!
