Energy-wise it was an extremely slow morning. I couldn’t get my ‘get-up-and-go’ going a hundred percent until much later in the afternoon. I nearly opted to do groceries a different day, but I knew that would just make me frazzled as far as time goes so I didn’t choose that route. I am so glad I didn’t because I saw a co-worker from my old job at the grocery store and I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Turns out he is about to leave the same place as well for partly the same reason I did, but it’s now a thousand times worse than when I left about 4 years ago. Considering how much it is stressing him out, I am so glad to hear he is cutting himself loose and I know he’ll find something better if he chooses to find other work.
He is easily one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and I was so glad to run into him randomly this afternoon!
Day 49 ~ December 26th, 2017
I got most of my email inbox emptied out this morning! It was not what I originally planned to do at all today, but I got into a groove and just stuck with it. Not sure what I’ll do next though… maybe some reading or video games? I might hit up a shower first though to warm up all the extremities if I’m going to be sitting still for a good length of time.

Day 27 ~ December 4th, 2017
A fairly relaxed day I suppose. A fantastic morning with the kiddo and my friend (his EA), they are getting along so well! It makes me incredibly happy! We had about a 30 minute hiccup in the afternoon when I decided TV was done for a while and I also needed to get my run in for my workout program today. Thankfully he was less physical today than he has been the last week or so and he used his words more than I expected, though still not a lot either. It’s always a work in progress and next time will be better!

Day 8 – November 15th, 2017
*sigh* If I miss one day then it’s so likely that I will miss two… I’ve been so sore (hard DOMS) the last few days so sitting at my computer wasn’t appealing. Plus, with the snow melting this past week I wanted to get out to the yards to clean up most of the leaves before it snowed again and lost my chance.
I worked my core too hard this weekend, it’s a mistake I haven’t made in a long time and I’ve mentally berated myself several times over the last few days. I won’t make this mistake again!

Done yesterday but had some computer issues (that are continuing into today -_-) so posting it now and today’s post is still to before the end of the day!
Day 3 – November 7th, 2017
Well my workout was tough this morning because it was so dang cold and getting my daily workout done first thing is not easy either! My preference when exercising is being barefoot (honestly I’m like this all the time cause I hate socks!) so my toes were little, sore icicles before I even hit the halfway mark. I am very thankful for slippers today 😛
And it was lower body for Day 2 in the Mutation Split and I didn’t completely hate it. Leg day is not remotely close to being my favourite muscle group to work, but I don’t slack on it anymore either.
On a great side to this my push-up numbers are improving almost weekly now *fist pump* I’m doing a set rep amount daily and it’s increased every week by 2reps/day. So last week it was 78reps/day and this week is 80reps/day and I’m attributing my progress across several push-up variations to this regular activity. Of course it’s something put together via The Hive and the forum topic can be found here. We call ourselves The Pushers!

Day 2 – November 6th, 2017
It’s a cold morning *shivers*
So I’m glad that I started a new weight lifting split this A.M. as it helped me get warmed up. At least for a little while anyway! It’s an upper-lower body split shared via a Hive member at Darebee and looking forward to my progress in it after four weeks. I’ve done two other splits by this particular Bee and not only enjoyed them both immensely, but had great gains by the end of each too.
With the help of a friend, that also works as EA to my son, we put together two mosaics of painted boards we all worked on since October. Head on over to Instagram if interested in what they look like. My son loves displaying his crafts and artwork around the house, be it the fridge or walls. It makes it him so excited he wiggles uncontrollably!

Day 48 ~ May 21st, 2017
Yesterday evening because the weather was so lovely out I sat out on the bench swing with my son. The sun was setting, we were rocking, he cuddled up to me, and I sang song after song for almost thirty minutes.
In these moments there is always so much clarity for my son. What I mean when I say this is that he is the epitome of regulated (calm), he speaks in full, clear, properly structured sentences (using the right pronouns, phrased questions/statements), and holds eye contact (his gaze doesn’t stutter all over the place) so I can see it in his eyes. It’s like for a handful of minutes the mutated gene(s) self-correct for that small amount of time and I get to see to the core of my little boy. It is a strange, treasured phenomenon that always makes my day 😀
Not much to mention today other than it was beautiful out! So I spent a large chunk of my day outside. Did some reading in the morning and then a short walk. Ended up going for another walk later in the afternoon and then sat out in the sun while I worked on my Math before dinner. It was so lovely and I am so sunburned, but it is worth it as it will turn into a tan!
Things that I am grateful for/about today:
~ that I’ve made getting my workout done first thing in the AM a habit
~ it’s the May long weekend and it isn’t raining!! This is so rare!
~ being outside for most of the day
~ got my herbs planted this afternoon
~ I noticed an increase flexibility in my hamstrings
And an extra on because I am so happy about this: BTS won the Top Social Award at the BBMAs this evening!!! Yays!!
