There’s Just Something About Friday

Be Happy! It’s Friday!


One might think that as a stay at home mom Friday would seem like any other day, weekend or not, and in some ways it is like any other day… but I can’t completely shake the Friday mentality that’s ingrained in us from early on. Of course I enjoy having Zak home for two days to help share the child rearing duties! And I enjoy his company too I suppose. 😉

I woke up hungry but didn’t have anything I was in the mood to eat before I worked out. At least nothing that I felt wouldn’t weigh me down. I also couldn’t figure out what I was in the mood for in regards to a work out either. Talk about indecision this morning.

Eventually I decided to hit the gym today because our membership expires at the end of June and I probably won’t renew it until September or October. I feel like I spend ALL winter in the gym and much prefer to exercise outdoors. When it’s nice out the gym is usually the last place I want to be.

Grey skies and the desire for something different, I hopped on my bike and rode the mile to the gym, spent 20 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the treadmill doing some incline walking and then some (non-inclined!) sprints and then more incline walking. I also did some weights with the machines before I left; seated rows, triceps, lats and abs. I took the long way home and ended up with a total of about 15 minutes on my bike. Regular cardio round table today.

Having not eaten before I left from the gym, my stomach was practically eating itself by the time I walked in the door. Thank goodness a my chocolate breakfast cookie was ready and waiting!

Ellen is here to take girls to story time today and then off to play while I get some work done around here. Ava’s dance recital dress rehearsal is tonight and then we are meeting up with some friends who are here from out of town for the weekend. Friday’s are fun!
