Yesterday was a pretty good day. Would you like to know why? Well let me tell you.
I got up pretty early, my almost 2 year old Pearl wasn't even up yet so I was able to get ready to go to the gym, and I like to go the earlier the better. Once Michael (My husband) got up to watch the kids I was out the door. Holy s***! it was freezing outside, I was in cropped yoga pants and a light zip up sweater that literally hangs off of me and about 4 sizes too big once I got on my bike hahah it was even colder, so I cranked up the gears hoping the extra resistance would warm me up, it did. Once I was in the gym I added an extra 15 minutes to my cardio and weights were a breeze, which reminds me I need to add more weight next time.
After the gym I went to the grocery store loaded up my backpack with apples, oranges, grapes, bananas, and a couple mangoes to eat right then. It drives me up the wall how little selection is available, and how I have to sacrifice eating organic because the availability is just never there in large enough quantities. Riding my bike home was annoying. My backpack is big and it was stuffed full my legs were aching from my workout and I had to ride home with my loot on my back, I successfully accomplished this with little pain, just mostly discomfort.
After I got home and stuffed myself with more mangoes we all went to the park. Michael, Alessa, Pearl and I all went to a park in the neighborhood to practice playing Tennis with Alessa, my amazing five year. Ever since Alessa was really little she would stand in front of the TV hypnotized by Tennis. When she was 3 we got her a racket. Her dad and her would always go into the basement and she would practice hitting the ball and they would just do this for hours. Two years later she still loves tennis, and she is pretty good at it too so now that were homeschooling we have more time to spend playing and watching her play just melts my heart. The best part was I got to be the "ball retriever" and I would run to get the balls and got in an additional amazing workout!
Right now its about 7:30 am, just waiting for my iphone to charge and then I'm off to the gym. My mother in law is coming for a visit around noon, the kids love when grandma comes to vist. I'm doing my university degree online and have been slacking in the last couple weeks so today I am going to finish up some assignments that are almost done and organize my study notes, really need to keep on top of that, really can't afford to get behind.
