Nevertheless, it did help me drag myself out of bed and I managed to finish one cup of coffee along with some reading before the boys started stirring. They woke up quite happy this morning, well-rested and full of energy. I love when that happens!
They went to their play group this morning and made these adorable rainbows...

After I picked up the boys, I asked them if they wanted to go to the gym or to our house. They unanimously voted for the gym. They must want me to get back on track just as much as I do. I only had about 45 minutes before child watch closed so I made the most of my time with some an intense full-body weights circuit and some sprint intervals on the elliptical. I was spent at the end!
One of the trainers made my day today when he gave me a couple of tips. I love working out when he's training other people cause I can steal his moves and he doesn't mind one bit, he even gives me pointers. Free training...score! Then, he told me how great my arms looked..."you have arms other women would kill for" he said. I told him I work hard for them and it was very nice to have my hard work noticed by someone who knows about fitness. It was especially nice to hear when I've been feeling frustrated with my body. Apparently my husband is a lucky man to have a wife with my arms...lol.
Speaking of workouts, check out this new workout from Peak313...I can't wait to try it during a non-peak hour at the gym. Talk about taking full advantage of the treadmill. How fun!
Time for some tutoring and then some quality time with my boys before dinner.
