This happened today..
Which you know means that this started it all…
I taught Body Attack this morning! This was NOT an easy wake-up call. It is LAUNCH week at one of the gyms I am part of, and it has just been CRAZY. I love teaching, I crave it. But man, I am one tired chica at the end of launches.
We launched Body Attack 76 on Wednesday with the whole attack team, but today there was only two of us so I stayed up late after the babies went to sleep, cramming choreography into my brain. I dropped into bed about midnight and T woke up at 2am (dang, pre-molars) in turn, woke B up, which of course woke Tikka up. Then all of a sudden it was puppy playtime. kdjfoij! I let the babies kiss Tikka “night, night” and put everyone back in bed. Then T decided he reeeeealllly wasn’t tired, precisely 4 minutes before my alarm went off.
I gave him his water bottle back, found his blanket and he went back to sleep easy. Silly boy.
I quickly packed my stuff and got dressed and was out the door to the gym. I never regret waking up to workout, and I always feel great afterwards but man, mix that with a late night, unhappy, not sleepy babies and it wasn’t easy!
I am really LOVING Body Attack 76. the music and the choreography is amazing. I was a one giant sweat puddle after!
I headed over to GPP and did this workout -minus the mile run. It is one of my favorites! Although, my PR is 85 pds. for this workout and today I scaled down to make my body happy. I started at 65, went to 55 for two rounds and then70 and maxed on the last round at 75. Those thrusters sting a little still, after this workout! Phew! I even got to see Janetha and Kerryne for a little this morning also! I am loving that they caught the GPP bug.
On my way home I couldn’t help but notice a bit of chill in the air…
SNOW?!!! It was 88 degrees on Wednesday. High of 50 today.. Oh well. Hopefully, it warms up again soon!
Now, that I have completed the Whole 30 challenge, (recap still in the works.) I have welcomed back Peanut Butter! Oh, how I missed that legume! There are several things that I didn’t realize I would miss as much as I did because I would use them so often, like… GF oats, honey (which is allowed in paleo just not the 30 day challenge), Hummus and another thing I used often was.. Agave!!
It was time to BAKE!
