I was going to skip the blog today because I am so utterly exhausted. I just climbed into bed though and realized that while my body is exhausted my brain won't slow down! And so I thought maybe a quick blog to get some of my thoughts out would help me calm down.
I did not do my bootcamp video today. I fully intended to, it just .. didn't happen. We started the day at "Spring Fest" on the campus where my husband and his father both work. His father - "Pops" - really wanted us to go, there was supposed to be music and activities and such, and he thought Max would like it. Well, it was windy as all get out, so there wasn't much going on after all, but I got a lot of walking in so I am counting that as my cardio for the day. Pops took us all out to lunch after that which was nice but impossible to log (veggie/egg/cheese skillet .. who knows .. at least it was full of veggies!) and led me to not log the rest of the day's food. Which led me to overeat I'm SURE. Tomorrow is a new day ....
By the time we got home it was naptime for Max, and I immediately started getting things ready for a BBQ dinner with some friends from our church. They have four kids ages 11, 9, and twins age 7, that just LOVE Maxwell, and he thinks he is so cool when he gets to hangout with the big kids. I made a macaroni salad & some baked beans, and got the house looking shipshape again. I had planned on doing my bootcamp video after all that with time to spare for a shower, but then I remembered that tomorrow's church service is a once-a-year what we call "Special Meeting" and that meant two meetings in one day instead of our regular one in the morning. So I spent some time putting together some new quiet activities for Maxwell. By the time that was done Maxwell was getting up from his nap and it wasn't long before our friends were arriving for dinner.
We had no idea how late it had gotten when they finally left! It was 8:30! About a half hour past Maxwell's usual bedtime, but we had so much fun and it was a rare occasion so he'll survive. I really love this couple and their kids are just so good with Max. So it was really a wonderful day, but I feel like a slacker that I didn't get my video in. I could've done it after they left, but of course there was cleanup to do and Max needed a bath .. and honestly .. I AM WIPED OUT!!
So to my bootcamp buddies .. someone had to be the first one to miss a video .. but I'm not giving up! Tomorrow we have a long day of meetings .. probably won't be getting home before 4pm. But I am fully determined that I will do TWO videos tomorrow evening to get caught up and a solid half hour of cardio, even if it's just some boxing on the Wii Fit.
And now that that's all out .. I think I am ready to snuggle in for a good sleep
I am hoping & praying that Maxwell will behave himself in the meetings tomorrow!
