My day started dark and early this morning with a very intense workout at the Y! I have really been wanting to add some more workouts in, other than my 1 day a week Zumba class, and have been having such a hard time finding a good time in our schedule.
Hence, my 5:45am workout. It took a lot of willpower to roll out of bed and put my feet on the icy floor and workout. I went to a Body Pump class, which was totally more intense than I realized. The other women in there were hard-core and had obviously been doing it for awhile! After 45 min, my arms were shaking and I was starting to feel slightly nauseous. It is a 1 hour workout using a weight bar and weights!
Squats, lunges, shoulder raises, biceps, triceps, push-ups, ab work, you name it, we did it. It may take even more willpower to go back next Monday.....I'm already really sore!
I'm checking out Yoga Thursday morning. Hopefully that will be a little lower key!
I have been sewing my fingers to the bone for my sweet guys. Seriously, my fingers are really sore. But my heart is so happy because my boys are so happy! It took them a really long time to come up with a costume idea. We don't buy $40 costumes over here, we create with what we have! Just like the good old days, right?
The boys have practically been breathing down my neck, waiting impatiently for me to finish. But I can't tell you about it yet because according to them, it's a secret:)
Samuel slid this sweet note over to me after dinner tonight. It says, "Dear Mommy, I love you so much. You are the best mommy in the world. Thank you for the ---------
costume. Love, Samuel."
If that's all it takes to show my kiddos I love them, I'd make a million of these!! I'm always amazed at how forgiving and loving kids are. And it doesn't take much to fill their hearts up with love.
