I was so glad to be able to start fresh today. We kicked off our morning by lazily sleeping in til 7:30. I love going in to get these boys in the morning...
...with a side of scrambled eggs before heading off to the library for some fun. I forgot my camera...woops! We had a blast, as usual, at the Family Place. It was a small, intimate group this morning. I love being able play with my kids, and watch them play with the other children, while chatting with the other moms.
After the library and a couple of errands, the boys let me squeeze in a workout which included two workouts from Tina's Best Body Bootcamp (I had to catch up from last week where I was focused on the race) along with some sprint intervals on the elliptical. The exercises on the Bosu ball never seem to disappoint. Tina's workouts have been a great way to shake up my exercise routine. I missed my workout buddy though :-)
My 20 minutes on the elliptical looked like this:
- First 5 minutes: warmup
- Alternate 1 minute sprints with 30 second recoveries (6 times)
- Alternate 1 1/2 minute sprints with 30 second recoveries (2 times)
- 2 minute cooldown
I made myself a quick protein smoothie to replenish my body after my workout while the boys ate their lunch. Then I started snacking on these little gems my sister left behind...
I guess I'm a bad mom because I was letting my 19 month olds enjoy them along with me...and it's not the first time I've share nuts with them. Check out this warning I noticed on the bag...
Speaking of things I've discovered, I got this sample in my Target beauty samples bag and am now on a mission to buy some. I love this stuff.
It's a "flawless beauty primer" and I feel like it really gives my face a fresh look and it feels nice going on too. I am such a minimalist when it comes to makeup and I love stuff like this to just brighten up my look a bit.
The rest of my quiet time is dedicated to laundry, studying, and sipping on some tea. When the boys wake up, we are definitely going to get our butts outside to enjoy this gorgeous day. Dinner is just leftovers so we can soak up as much fresh air as possible until we get hungry. Maybe we'll even eat outside :-) Have a fabulous Friday!
