Day 2 of 7 day Fitting Fitness In Series

Today was much less hectic than yesterday. It was also very productive in many ways. It pays to not be able to sit for very long!

5:30am: Fitbit alarm goes off and I cannot believe how fast the night went by.

5:40am: iPhone alarm goes off and I remember that this morning I will be running with my neighbor friend. I roll out of bed, grab a drink of water, and do my morning pre-run routine.

6:10-7:00am: 5 mile run, a regular route. It was cold starting out, but I was sweating by the end of the run.

7:00am: morning rush. Breakfast of a quick bowl of puffed Kamut and milk this morning. Making lunches, oatmeal, and cereal for everyone else.

8:00am: pre-shower ab workout. 15 in and outs, 35 crunches.

10:30am: take little guy to soccer practice. It’s a mom and me class. For 1/2 an hour I run around the soccer field with 3 year olds. That’s good exercise. After practice we stay at the park and I chase little guy around and push him in the swing. My arms were getting tired after the swing pushing.

12:00pm: arrive home to make lunch for little guy and myself. I have leftover soup from last night. (See previous post) I also couldn’t pass up some delicious honey wheat pretzel sticks from Trader Joe’s. Those are dangerous.

12:30-3:00pm: clean, clean, clean. My house was neglected. Vacuuming and many trips to the garbage added up steps for my daily total. (My goal is 10,000)

3:00pm: kids come home from school. get after school snacks together for them. I have a plain rice cake because I can’t break to clean! (Still need to prep those veggies!)

5:00pm: prep dinner. Make homemade pesto sauce, cook chicken and pasta. Steam carrots and sprinkle with dill. 3 sets of 15 squats in between different tasks to feel my heart rate elevate a bit.

6:15pm: dinner on the table. I run out the door to an appointment and a couple errands.

7:30PM: eat a carrot, some leftover Shephard’s Pie, and a pickle slice. Random.

Before bed I will do a 1 minute plank and 35 more crunches because they are fast. I will be asleep by 10:30pm and up and at ’em again before the sun rises.
