After a month of autumn not being able to make up its mind about whether or not it actually wanted to be here after we officially scratched “First day of Autumn!” off the calendar, it is finally cool, rainy and fall-like outside. Just as I like it! We’ve had brief, teasing glimpses but this time it looks like it’s here to stay. Maybe that means that my tomatoes will actually stop growing now.
I’ve been a little quiet lately. It’s not that I don’t have much to say; I have a lot of things that I want to post about, I was just focused on the 30 Day Shred last week. It was Level 2 and for some reason that level was a killer for me. I focused all of my attention on deciding what time I was going to work out and how to work up the motivation and energy for it. Today was Day 22 and I officially started Level 3 yesterday. It’s difficult but much more enjoyable than Level 2. (Not that this program is enjoyable, but it’s enjoyable in comparison. I think the only reason I’m still going strong with the program is because I’m only a week away from being done with it and my coworker is doing it too. I can’t wait to start up Zumba again once this is over!)
Little One has also joined in with the workout by pouncing on me whenever the exercises are done on the floor. Plank moves are usually free from too much interaction because she just rolls over and hopes that I’ll give her a tummy rub, but when it comes to ab workouts I’ve had an extra weight whenever she has flung herself on top of me or I’ve had a sentinel ready to lick my face. Yesterday she actually downed a bowl of water when the workout was done; she was so tired from all of her activity.
I took a couple weeks off from Weekly Wishes because I had enough going on that it felt overwhelming, but I’m ready to get back into it now. I know that I’m a day late and i had planned to post this yesterday but I spent the evening doing a bunch of work around the house and still only tackled half of the tasks on my to-do list. Maybe I should consider pulling out the trusty “only schedule five manageable tasks each day” again?
1. Organize my tea and tea ware. It’s a little unruly right now.
2. Sketch out an idea for a Minnesota Mermaids design.
3. Work on a web project.
4. Read two books. I’m so behind on my yearly book reading goal!
5. Keep going strong with the 30 Day Shred.
