Well, the Break Is Over but There Is Still Plenty to Enjoy!!!

Today for my 44 I worked my abs!  I didn’t think the move would end up being much of a challenge but I was wrong!!  I did a scissor move with my legs while keeping my head and shoulders off the floor.

ready to start - I like to lay in the sun like a cat!

right leg down - crunch to left

I counted dropping my right leg then left as 1 rep and did this in a fairly slow controlled way.  The hard part was keeping my shoulders lifted, legs up and straight(ish).

I also ran again – a total of 5 miles at a nice easy pace (on my treadmill because it is cold)!!!

The boys have been out of school for 2 weeks and I decided to give myself a break for most of that time, too.  Now we are down to the final weekend and then we get back to our regularly scheduled programs!!!

I’m actually thinking that a couple days like this built into every week month would be a really good thing – days spent hanging out, playing games, eating snacks and left-overs and just enjoying life!Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 9.23.52 AM

Oh, well – I really like my normal life, too.  I like the routine and am always happy to have my workout (and daily post) done by 7:30 instead of just starting to get up and  around at that time!!

So, we will enjoy these next few days (I even convinced the boys to come with me today when I go clean the venue for tomorrow night’s event!!!) and be thankful that we were able to relax and regroup as long as we did!!!Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 9.23.24 AM

And, instead of living for the next break, I plan to live each day to the fullest and enjoy all of the little things (like cleaning!!!) as much as possible!!  Plus, I’m sure that a day spent cleaning and ironing will help me get in plenty of steps!!!


Do you ever find yourself just putting in time until the next big thing – break, holiday, vacation, etc?

Happy Fun Friday!!!
