This morning there was a good example of how sometimes I can be winning as a mom and then totally lose at it all within the same half hour. As you know I workout at home while my baby is asleep. Well today Anna woke up before I was done so I had to break to feed and occupy her before I could finish the rest. I don’t know about you but once there is a break in my focus it is hard to get going again. But I fed her, set her up in her Bumbo seat, and got back to it. She got restless before the end but I made it work haha!
Total fit mom win right? It would have been a total win if the story had ended there…… but it did not.
Also during said workout, Ryan was playing next to me. This is fine, he is usually next to me playing during every workout. Well he has this Minion gun that when you pull the trigger it makes farting noises. I know, only the best for my boy! He kept pulling the trigger and sounding it over and over again. At this point in the mom game I have learned to tune out pretty much every bell and whistle on their toys, but this time I couldn’t hear the instructor over the noise so I asked him to take it somewhere else……… He stays. He doesn’t stop.
I ask him again to take it somewhere else. Still nicely.
Doesn’t phase him.
I ask him one more time nicely.
Might as well have been speaking to a wall.
At this point I probably should have just taken the gun away and let that be that, but instead I chose to yell “Ryan if you don’t stop with the gun I’m taking it away!”
STILL farting sounds proceed!
So I snatched the gun from his hands and threw it against the cement wall in my basement.
Ya win some ya lose some I guess.
The Master’s Hammer and Chisel: Chisel Cardio
I have GOT to quit thinking that I know what is coming in these workouts. Stoppit Angela just stoppit! You don’t! Going by the name, I figured this was going to be reminiscent of the cardio in Insanity Max 30 and totally geared myself up for a super sweaty, weightless cardio session. But no! It was the coolest cardio!
It’s like cardio weightlifting. It’s neat. You are holding weights while do each exercise for 1 minute. It really gets your heart rate up! Aside from the fart gun throwing incident, it was actually a really fun workout today.
Sometimes It’s Enough, Sometimes It’s Just Not
Some days my meal plan is enough and then some days it’s not. Last night it was not. I was SO HUNGRY. I already had posted what I ate for the day on here so I kept going back and forth in my head about whether to eat more or not. I thought about it way too long but then finally ended up having some more of my prepped food. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with this but I have to say it was a little bit of a mental struggle! Isn’t it so hard to not have the all-or-nothing-mindset? But we have to break free of it and keep moving forward.
So here is what I ate today. Some days it’s enough and then some days it’s not. If I add anything to it I will let you know tomorrow. 🙂
