Gotta keep the momentum

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Last night, even though my son had taekwondo, I still managed to get a work out in. It was chaotic last night. It was crazy last night but I still managed to eat pretty okay (salad and sweet potato for dinner last night). We managed to get fresh juice made for today, I got a breakfast shake made for myself today, extra salads. My hubby chopped up papaya for me (Oh drat, just remembered I have that in the fridge, gotta eat it)
It has been a seriously crazy day. Started crazy.
I had HOA business to attend to, muchos muchos emails to send out, texts to send out. A call to a heating company here to maintain one of the units in the condo association, more emails, talking to the accounting firm that handles our books. And then work. My normal 7-4 job.
I've gotten so angry at some of the HOA people before when they insinuate that I get benefits out of volunteering for the HOA or that I'm not doing such a great job or something. I do this along with my normal paid job, I do not get paid for this other job, and yet I have my phone on at 8pm at home, I'm accepting calls for their heating issues to fix their heating issues. I give up time in my evenings, my weekends so that they don't have to worry about it.

So anyways, off that rant. Tonight I pick up my first Full circle box here. Can't wait! And then I also have to pick up my eggs from my friend who lives down the road and raises chickens. YAY for fresh eggs!
You know, I learned last night that I'm really badly out of shape. Again.
My son kept pointing it out. I could barely hold a plank. We did 40 sit ups together last night and he kicked my butt.
I did about 10 minutes on the aero pilates machine and then did another 10 worth of sit ups, planks, bridges, stretches, and sitting against the wall like I'm sitting on a chair. (I WON against my son emoticon )
I'm going on a cruise May 2017 so one of my goals is to also run up and down the stairs in our house about 20 times a night. Get me ready for running up and down the stairs on the ship.
We always have one rule when walking around the ship. We always have to take the stairs, not the elevator. Only time elevator is allowed is when either we just came in from port and we're super exhausted or we have lots and lots of bags in our hands. Sometimes we will ride the clear elevator just so son can see down in the atrium in the ship but that is more for the ride. Not the going up and down. :)
This time we'll be on the Carnival Dream. Really looking forward to it! Gotta get my beachbody back again.
