Catching up on the weekend!

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Sat: Got to work at 6:30am...too early! Worked out with a few clients that morning while the group cert. work shop was going on. I did my 3.1 miles on the treadmill and upper body workout. Yoga class at 1pm, then back to the gym to be the proctor for the test.

A little me time with a massage. I needed it! Aislinn, massage therapist, was happy that my body was in good shape still. It's been a while since she did body work on me.

I was ready for bed by 8:30pm!

Sun: Got to work at 7am...woohoo, I got to sleep in! 2 hours of lecture then 3 hours of work out! Did I mention I was doing a work shop on kickboxing?!?!?! 1st hour was easy...just going over technique. 2nd hour was each of cueing moves, etc...still no big deal. We were all a little sweaty, but then the 3rd hour hit. The instructor does a MASTER's class. I put this in bold because it is meant to kick our butts, which it did. Don't get me wrong, I had a great time. I was fun be able to be pushed to the limits and learn new things. She did some new moves. That was awesome. My thighs will feel it tomorrow! YEAH!!! My clothes were soaking wet! Everyone in class including the instructor was dripping. It was GREAT!

Anyway, all the kids are back from their "vacations." It is still quiet in the house. That's nice! Kent starts back to working nights. That stinks! Greg will not be coming home. I'm still a little upset about that, but the Navy wants him to go to San Diego. He will go to school for HVAC. It's a good thing, I know! I had made plans on running with him on Aug 9th, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (5k). We were going to celebrate his 20th birthday. Now that is all a wash. He is hoping to be back in town around Nov or Dec. Not sure yet. He graduates "A" school July 30th. I'm really proud of him. He has grown up a lot over the past few months!

Life seems to be changing quite a bit around me. My boys are all grown up. It just seems odd. Maybe I just noticed the facial hair! LOL The girls want to be grown. I think I'm having growing pains today or maybe that is from the 3 hours of work out!

Strong Mind, Strong Body!

    You do the 3 hours of kickboxing all at one TIME!?!? HOLY CRAP! No wonder you're in tip-top shape!
    Isn't it GREAT what the military does for the kids? I think everyone should be mandated to do bootcamp. It give you a sense of pride and accomplishment! And, it takes the "baby" out of a young adult. BONUS!
    Hm, growing pangs or workout? Maybe a bit of both.
    Imagine, my "baby" is 20 and is actually moving AWAY up to Ohio next month. I'm glad I'm not physically in the house b/c I guarantee I'd be DEEEEEEPRESSED!
    I made up a circuit thing myself yesterday and posted to a blog. Check it out and see what you think. oh, I had forgotten to put a couple of "moves" in there, too, but fixed it up for todays workout. I'm "keeping it fresh"!
    I hope you get a bit of R&R tonight. Sounds like you NEED it!
