It’s been hot this week and we’ve been singing our praises for swimming pools.
The Administratorhas finally been able to come home at a decent hour from work this week and so we have gotten in some great PML-Dad time.
Landon was making this face all morning one day and I couldn’t figure out why he was being so dramatic (aside from the fact that he is my offspring). Then I realized he was mimicking the monkey in the top middle of his plate. Nice.
In other sleepless night news: Homeboy has been teething this week (or something) and waking up at 4:00am rearing to go for the day. FML. On Wednesday, he woke up at 12:30 and stayed awake until 3:00am (regardless of how many times I put him back in his bed). Somewhere in the middle of my brain fog I remember setting him down by his crib and he yelled and pointed as if he were leading a band of men off to war, ” Vaminos Mama! Apple Juice!!!” After a sprint down the long hallway to the kitchen and right before storming the refrigerator he yelled at the top of his lungs, “Arrrriba!”
ps I’m not one of those non-Spanish speaking parents that speaks Spanglish to my kids. This is all due to influence of “Nickelodeon pre-school.” For better or for worse.
I had a pretty good workout week, despite feeling a little bit like a zombie. Classes really are where it’s at for me. I love being in a studio and I like super loud music (apparently).
Monday: Zumba (1 hr)
Wednesday: Zumba + swimming with Landon
I *almost* threw in the towel today because I couldn’t get out the door in time for the class I wanted to attend and it’s too hot to run outside right now. I read a great quote from Averie, another healthy living blogger, that said, “If I’m hating this in five minutes, than I can quit.” So I pulled up my big-girl pants and hopped on my least favorite exercise apparatus and got to work. It was a pretty sweet workout and of course, you never regret a workout. Thank for the inspiration, Averie.

2.7-2.9 4 0
2.9-3.1 9 0
3.1-3.3 cool down 0
Basically after the first 0.5 mile I adjusted the speed every .2 miles. Instead of changing my intervals for time, I did distance.
Total time: 37:34 (with leisurely warm-up and cool down time) I was dripping in sweat and felt like I had done something great for myself. It also made the boring monotony of the treadmill kind of fun. I can’t believe I am actually saying that.
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
Something to do: Eat something delicious and challenge yourself physically once this weekend. And MOST IMPORTANTLY–remember our troops
