I just joked with the Hubs last night that it might be a good thing that I'm not able to workout right now...work is extremely busy and I've been working late. It would be hard trying to fit in time at the pool or even a lunchtime spin class...I remember missing a lot of workouts at this time last year, too. I mean, looking at the picture below, you can see that I haven't even had time to finish any of these...
|You know you're busy when...you've started 4 different drinks throughout the day and finished none. During a normal day, I've finished at least 4 of those tumblers full of water (and 1 coffee and 1 diet coke).|
I am using this time to get reacquainted with my workout boyfriend, Tony Horton. Okay, so I can't do legs from the Legs and Back workout. And I can't do Yoga, Plyo, Kenpo X, Ab Ripper X or Core Synergistics, but I can do all the upper body I want! The pic below is a shot from today's workout - Shoulders and Arms. This is my absolute favorite P90X workout, because it uses free weights to workout the shoulders, biceps and triceps...while doing "lying down tricep extensions" Tony's tip of the day is "DON'T SMASH YOUR FACE!" Truth be told, I fast forward through most of the chit chat and finish this workout in about 45 minutes. I've also been doing some traditional crunches and planks to work on my core.
|Bicep curls...oh the fun!|
You didn't know I was a decorator, did you? Well actually, I'm not. In fact, I suck at decorating. We've been in our house for 4 years this month and I still have lots of empty wall space because I can't decide what I want to put there. But, when it comes to the kid's rooms, I love decorating! We just bought the Munchkin his "big boy" furniture...that was an adventure in itself!
We went into the store thinking we'd be buying this lower profile bunk bed....but the upper bed was so low, we thought the Munchkin would bump his head every morning.
|We loved that this was low (in case one of the kids though it'd be fun to jump off the top) and it has steps instead of the ladder!|
|So cute, but so impractical!|
Next, we spotted this! We figured it would take the Munchkin through his teen years and it included the wardrobe, drawers and even a desk all as a part of the bed. But, this sucker is huge! Our bedroom aren't tiny, but this sucker would take up a lot of space. Not to mention that I could totally see one of the kids thinking that it would be cool to jump from the top bed to the bottom bed...and us making a trip to the ER.
|Awesome, but potentially dangerous!|

4. Family Time
The past weekend was full of activity...from re-organizing the Munchkin's room, cleaning out the kid's closets, to shopping for new room stuff, to birthday parties...crazy, I tell you! The Hubs and I had to divide and conquer - I took the Munchkin with me to shop for room stuff (as if I didn't learn my lesson from the furniture shopping) and the Hubs took the Kiddo to her first roller skating party.
|The Hubs said the Kiddo caught on pretty quickly!|
|Yes, I feed my kids McDonald's...but only occasionally. And hey, now the Happy Meal comes with a smaller portion of fries and apple slices!|
So for now, that's it from me. The upside to not being able to workout is that I can squeeze in some time to do some of those pesky projects around the house that I never seem to get around to. And, I get to spend more time with the kids...and I am not worn out from a long run/bike and too tired to play! Of course, this is only true when things are more calm at work (right now, I am lucky to see my kids when they're awake!)
Hope you have an amazing weekend!
So, are you a decorator? Would you buy the Lightening McQueen bed? What's in the plan for your weekend?
