I can finally share that ew have welcomed our new addition: baby Leonidas joined the family on Friday, and we couldn’t be happier!
Sunday – 3.84 miles, walking + core challenge day 14
Happy Sunday! The last day of the weekend is usually more of the same: fitness, errands, laundry, etc.
A came home from camp, so he had to get his gear all cleaned and organized. That usually takes the better part of the day, but it’s always nice to have the garage organized.
Monday – 3.54 miles, walking + core challenge day 15
Another week, another Monday. It was good to finally feel better and it’s all good that the sun is shining more and more.
A had the day off from school, so we decided to go to the movies. We haven’t been to a movie since February of 2020. Going to the movies was a favorite activity of mine, and we really missed it. I was nervous about being in a theater with people, but it went fine. We went to the earliest show, and we saw Spiderman: No Way Home, so it wasn’t busy. I’m glad we were able to do it.
Tuesday – 4.69 miles, walking + core challenge day 16 + bicep session
Just a regular Tuesday. I walked some, and I ran a little less. This may just be a season of less running.
Did I do some strength? Yes, I did. I found a really great bicep circut that makes use of all kinds of curls. I loved it, even if my arms were burning after.
Wednesday – 4.26 miles, walking + core challenge day 17
The weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. All good things.
On this particular day, I got crafty. I made dog biscuits with Luna to celebrate National Dog Biscuit Day.
And I started making cups again!
In the evening, we had our Valentine’s date: a pairing dinner at a local restaurant. The venue showcased its new speakeasy/private room, and we very much enjoyed the five course meal with complimentary cocktails.
Thursday – 4.55 miles, walking + core challenge day 18 + shoulder session
Was I dragging in the morning? Indeed. My walk was great, and my shoulders got a much needed workout.
I had to hustle to get through some phone calls, and then get to my nail appointment.
And then the rest of the day was for errands and tidying the house. A was on dinner duty that night which was great, too. He is learning about reading recipes in advance, planning ahead, and timing the meal elements properly.
Friday – 4.65 miles, walking + core challenge day 19
I woke up super early, barely able to contain my excitement. OMG!!!! It was puppy day! I started with my walk and my core challenge. Every day, the reps increase, and every day, I’m keeping up. To be honest, it’s not a super involved challenge (only five moves a day), but it doesn’t take up a lot of time which ensures I do it.
We got cleaned up and then we hit the road. Our puppy was just under two hours away, and we were anxious to pick him up and get him home. Everything went smoothly and soon the new baby was joining us for the ride back.
He did get a little carsick, but after that, the slept in my lap and all was wall.
Luna and A were both pretty thrilled. Luna was a little confused at first but she seemed to accept him pretty quickly.
Saturday – 5.66 miles, walking + core challenge day 20 + back session
Leonidas had a good night and so I was able to go for a walk with J in the morning. It was good to see her.
When I got home, I did a back workout, and then it was time to spend the day with the babies. Leonidas is doing well. He adores his sister and she is doing such a great job with him.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
As you can imagine, I’m pretty wrapped up in the puppy. He’s so cute and spunky, and Luna is really pleased to have someone to
boss around play with. Getting Leonidas meant that I gave up some fun trips and events (I’ll be staying home over Spring Break, for example) because he just won’t be ready to be left, but it’s worth it.
We are coming to the end of the month, and I need to finish one more book, and get ready to slide into March. I think we can all agree that we need to push through to calmer days.
How was your week in training? Do you enjoy going to the movies?
