Today was our open house at school. I had two since I’m working with two grade levels. Yes, I know I’m super cool like that. Today was a day to go down in the memory book. I broke a shoe (third one in about a year while at school!), had a wardrobe malfunction, tried to get a plan going for the first week, put out figurative fires, and generally run around like a chicken with my head cut off. Whoa. I’m tired just writing about it. Surprisingly, I’m still in a decent mood this evening! I think a lot has to do with the sheer ridiculousness of all the going-ons this day. You’ve just got to laugh or at least just shake your head. I feel off the no-coffee wagon today and saw this license plate on another teacher’s jeep in the Starbucks drive-thru today…
Yes, life is good. Yes, I “b” teacher. Yes, I need coffee.
I missed my morning workout today due to a 2AM bathroom break that the Mr. handled. I feel as if I participated a little since I was awake and listening to “Do you need to pee pee?” discussion. To make up for it (and try and turn around my crazy day!), I did a little workout at home with my two favorite spotters, H and Roscoe. We did a twenty minute walk around the neighborhood with H in the stroller. Then, we did the workout pictured below.
I did that circuit 5x. I did wait and do the sit-up/ab routine until I went inside. I did all those other exercises while H played in his sandbox. I only had a few interruptions to help with the “skid steer.” The picture of me doesn’t do justice to how sweaty I was. Seriously. The fact that I did it outside on this 85 degree day probably had some to do with that. I did modify the push-ups by doing 3 sets of 10 the traditional way, and then I used the stairs to make it in inclined push up (I think that’s the name). Voila! Workout done. Have a great Thursday evening! Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!!!!
