Day 46 ~ still winter in the nooks

Day 46 ~ April 23rd, 2017

Got out for a bike ride on the Myra Trestles this morning with Hulkhands and a friend. It was a perfect day for it! No wind or rain! There was still a fair bit of snow in the middle bit so we opted to turn around at that point because tromping in the snow with bikes is definitely not ideal, especially without fat tires. Give it another month or so and it will all be melted and we can head up again for a jaunt.

Thankfully I was thinking far enough ahead and took something to help deal with my allergies for the day. The two things I am most allergic to in this area are pollinating like crazy right now, so the eyes and nose are going haywire!

Day 45 ~ rainy day cuddles, procrastination killer

Day 45 ~ April 20th, 2017

My son was awake before 5:30 this morning and tromping out of bed shortly after then. Thankfully he was totally game to come cuddle with me in my bed. He even fell back to sleep there too! When my alarm went off thirty minutes later and I was getting up, he didn’t want to get up. I even asked him if he wanted “more sleep” and he very quietly, sleepy mumbled “more” and promptly started snoring again *chuckles* So, I tucked him back in and even now he is still snoozing away and it’s been just over an hour since I got up. He hasn’t done something like this with me in years and it felt nice 🙂

Day 43 ~ math droning & new fitness goals

Day 43 ~ April 15th, 2017

Ugh! It’s been a month since I last posted… >_> It’s difficult to do everything I want on the computer because I just can’t sit still for that long (even while typing this up I got up a handful of times to do something else, or push-ups) and I typically talk myself into doing Math, which is what I should be doing anyway. I hate how time-consuming, and boring, Pre-Calc 11 is! Thankfully I only have three Units and the Final left to do and then it’s done. Plus, it’ll be finished up well before the set end date for the course too.

I had my first race two weeks ago on the Westside and I think I will do a short post about that after I do this one. So more on that later!

I finished up three weeks of a body weight workout via a Hive member on Darebee yesterday and I loved it. There is a lot of room for progression strength-wise that I find extremely appealing and they are fairly quick workouts too. The idea behind it is something that I will re-visit in the future for sure. Next up is a 5 Day Split via another Hive member, called Iron Mode, and that starts this Monday. While I enjoy body weight workouts, I was definitely starting to miss tossing around the dumbbells so this will sate that desire for the next four weeks.

Two other things that I am going to focus on probably twice a week are holding a front lever and a planche. I am further along with the planche than I thought I would be, but not there yet. Front lever I am not close at all yet… I get to an advanced tuck and attempt to move to a single leg and I just drop down. So, hopefully lots of progress to happen over the next few months and my goal now is to be able to do these consistently by the end of 2017. Here’s hoping I can make it happen! 😀


Things that I am grateful for/about today:

~ creating some new fitness goals
~ getting out for a bike ride
~ my raspberry plant survived the transplant!
~ putting on good weight (muscle)
~ got my son’s passport photos done this week

Cheers ~ ✌
