Today for my 43, I wanted to do something with weights since I haven’t in awhile. I did a bicep curl and plie squat at the same time – basic moves but it felt good!!
I used 12 pound dumbbells and that was a challenge by the last 10 or so!!!
Today I finally did the first round of this week’s challenge workout with Taylor. This one is 3 circuits – as many reps as possible during the time. Circuit 1 – 10 minutes, circuit 2 – 8 minutes and circuit 3 – 6 minutes. It was pretty challenging (especially circuit 3 which was 4 different burpees – 5 reps each for the whole time and yes, 6 minutes is a long time to do nothing but burpees!!!).
Since it is already Thursday and I’m just now starting this week’s workout, I will do it the next 2 days also!! I like to space things better but you do what you have to do!!!
If you have kids, work with kids or read anything about kids then I’m sure you have heard of the “Time-Out” concept. When our boys were younger, we didn’t call it time-out but they did have something similar on occasion.
Last night by the time we got home and unloaded the car, I needed to be put in time-out. I was CRANKY!!!I was tired of being cooped up and ready to not be around anyone (especially my family) for a few minutes!! I know that sounds harsh but give me a break – we just spent 2 straight days in the car for 22 hours!!! Plus, I still had to unpack (cause I hate to leave it – I have issues!) and figure out something for dinner.
I was going to try to get to the grocery store and, of course, Chris wanted to go with me. What?! We just spent the last 2 days together non-stop, I think I will go alone!!! (See, cranky!! Usually I like it when Chris and I run errands together.)
Moral – adults can occasionally benefit from time-outs – usually we even put ourselves in them – just don’t forget the whine/wine!!!
Do you ever feel like you could benefit from a time-out?
