A few of you have asked me how I’m "handling" my new work schedule. Honestly, you do what you have to do. It’s not the ideal situation, but it’s what we need to do right now, so I’m OK with it.
That being said, pulling 14 hour days is, of course, really exhausting. This morning I could really feel the impact of several nights of 6 hours of sleep. In fact, it took me a few minutes to figure out how to make my oatmeal! I couldn’t remember how much water and milk to put in. 🙂
My oatmeal contained (I think):
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Vanilla Extract
- Toppings: almonds, brown sugar
Oatmeal makes everything better!
10 Minute Strength Routine
Today’s strength routine was less intense than normal. I’m feeling pretty sore in the arms and abs, but I still wanted to do something to get my blood flowin’!
- 20 push-ups
- 20 regular crunches
- 50 side leg lifts, right side
- 50 side leg lifts, left side
- 50 bicycle crunches
Happy Birthday, Mommy!
Today is my Mommy’s Birthday!
My Mom and I on my wedding day. She walked me down the aisle with my Dad!
My mom and I ate my first half marathon. She drove all the way from Tennessee to support me!
My mom is truly an incredible role model, a hard worker, a good friend, and a smart woman. Happy Birthday! I wish we could celebrate together. 🙂
