Happy Monday! I’m not so sure why I’m giddy that today is Monday.. maybe because I know there’s a paycheck waiting on me at the end of the week – or, it could be that I was able to get some things done this weekend.
This weekend went by rather slowly. I can probably blame that on my lack of internet service. I’m not complaining one bit because I was able to get a lot of things done and when Sunday came, it was all about relatives, reflection, and rest.
Earlier this week, I did get a chance to go to the gym. I took a cycling class which was really fun, but quite painful in the end. I wasn’t even embarrassed when I did the noodle walk as I walked back to the locker room to grab my things. I felt good. Really good. I felt relieved and light. My mood was just different. My kids tagged along with me to the gym where they spent their time in the child care facility that they absolutely loved. I’m not sure what they were doing in there, but they were very disappointed that they had to leave. In a way, I was too, but I had to prepare for school and work.
After my workout and before I got into bed, I noticed how easier it was for all of us to get to bed. It was easier for me to remain asleep throughout the night. I woke up before my alarm. I danced and sang in my car while in traffic during our morning commute to school and work. And if all I have to do is work out to feel like this, then I can get used to this. except I might have to purchase a bigger seat for the bike if I’d like to avoid further ass pain. *oh it’s real!*
Friday and Saturday were spent recooping,
nursing my stiffness cleaning my apartment, and creating a budget. And again, since I didn’t have internet service and Cox doesn’t seem to feel that I need it as much as I do, I was able to get these things done rather quickly. (read: I’m easily distracted when I have to clean and I wasn’t this time because I ain’t have no cable.)
On Sunday, after dinner at Ralph & Kacoos with my brother and sister, we headed to Burger King to let the kids hang out and play a bit while we talked about our lives and upcoming visits, etc. I think it’s so lovely how much time we spend together. I also love the fact that my brother is closer to us now–he’s right in Texas, which makes it nice when we visit there as well.
Although I didn’t get a chance to make it to the gym, I would say keeping up with these two was somewhat a workout. Well, maybe not, but I was active this weekend. I’m still trying to figure out a workout schedule but it’s definitely a place where we’ll frequent often. And even though I didn’t make it to the gym this weekend, I finally had to time to pick up the book that I’ve had to pause on.
To be honest, this book is just boring, but I don’t like leaving books unfinished. There is a very interesting chapter where Queen Latifah talks about money and I could relate to it completely. But I’ll elaborate on that another time. Or, perhaps when I’ve finally figured out a blog schedule.
Anywho, again, Happy Monday and let’s make this week a great week, shall we?
