I can’t even believe I’m writing this, but I had a productive Monday. More impressive is the fact that I know it is Monday. Mostly likely, this is the last time this week I’ll know what the day. Importantly, it was also the boys last day of spring break, so we spent today getting ready for virtual school as it starts tomorrow!!! Oh joy!
I got an early start to my morning with my coffee plus Vital Proteins and the news. Quickly, I remembered why I stopped reading the news all the time. Usually, my first workout of the day would either be a run or my BBG resistance, but today I began my day with an awesome gentle yoga class via Zoom. It was awesome!
After yoga, I completed the week six BBG resistance leg workout. (P.S. if you haven’t seen the Sweat App, it’s slick and worth checking out.). Honesty, I did more squats and lunges in 30 minutes than should have ever be required in a lifetime. Should feel awesome tomorrow! I kid, I kid. It was a fabulous, effective workout for my legs and glutes. I cooled down with a stretch session and quick walk around the circle with the dogs.
In the afternoon, the boys and I took the pups for a walk. Anakin walked with Goalielocks, while I had Maya and Athena under my control. The Mayor, however, decided to join us on his rollerblades. Fortunately, the weather was beautiful with clear, beautiful, blue skies. Unfortunately, it was pretty hot, so we ended up cutting out walk a little short. All three dogs did great on the walk. We had a great time and it was nice to get out of the house.
We ended our night by supporting ordering BBQ via Delivery Dudes. After a crazy, productive day with two teens and three dogs, I felt a break from the kitchen was not undeserved. While I prefer eating home cooked food, I feel it is important to support our local restaurants and businesses throughout this pandemic. In fact, tomorrow is Takeout Tuesday2. You can support your local restaurants on this day by ordering here: Door Dash
