Post Vacation

We spent last week in Newport CA for spring break, and I brought along my ipod and timer, but I didn't do anything, not even my default exercises of mountain climbers and planks.

I forced out a good workout yesterday to kick it in gear again with a 3 minute center plank, 90 second side planks (2 times each side) and then a 3 minute yoga table. Then around 9:30 pm Joseph went running with me for a mile and then I did another mile on my own. He's a little speed demon.

Going to do another run tonight and some weight training - not sure if I'll do upper or lower body.

I'm feeling so over my head with life, if I can survive another month then summer will be here for me to catch my breath. Summer home with kids is a welcome relief and break. I can handle them. I have a hard time handling all the demands their schools and schedules put on us.

3 Minute Center Plank

Did planks today and then 500 mountain climbers. Those are two of my default exercises that I do when I need to just try and get it in quick. I did a 3 MINUTE center plank, thank you, and felt pretty tough after than. Then 90 seconds left, 90 seconds right, repeat that for my sides, then a 3 minute Yoga table. After doing those planks, it was hard to crank our 500 mountain climbers, but a little bit of Imagine Dragons always helps with that. They are my current workout music that I love.

Other that that, I didn't do anything this week. My 9 month old baby has been sick with a cold the past few days. She's been up a lot at night cause she's really congested, and thus can't breath through her nose when she's nursing. Makes for a difficult situation and for a long night. So I'm kinda feeling like the walking dead and thus will not give myself a hard time over my poor showing with exercise.
