I experienced some problems this morning when I got home from work. I tried to email one of my son's teachers and my email wouldn't send so I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with cox cable trying to trouble shoot the problem. I couldn't even reply to the email with my I-phone so I'm not sure what's going on. Don't have time to even check it tonight before work so I'll have to look into it more tomorrow.
As a result, I got to bed late and then woke up at 2:30 thinking it was Wednesday and got up and headed to school to get the boys, only to realize when I pulled up in the parking lot and noticed that there weren't a bunch of people in cars waiting for their kids to get out. Wednesdays are early dismissal days and the kids get out of school at 2:50 instead of 3:10. I looked at my phone and saw it was Tuesday so I headed back home and went back to bed. I then slept until nearly 6:30! I finally got over 5 hours of sleep - it's been a crappy week for me in the sleep department.
I did the Day 3 video for the January jumpstart challenge - a 7-minute Arm Shaper Video with dumbbells. I dug my dumbbells out of a closet instead of trying to use my resistance bands. I realized that I've had my dumbbells since 1979! I remember buying them the summer after my freshman year in college and wanting something that I could use in the house besides a jump rope and pushups and set ups, just about the only things that I remember doing back then for exercise if I wasn't running, playing a sport or riding my bike.
After I did my video I went out and walked for 30 minutes and covered 1.78 miles. It's 36 degrees right now so it was pretty warm compared to what it's been lately.
