Happy Monday Friends! Did everyone enjoy a long weekend? I feel like weekends are never long enough. I had Friday off of work. Instead of doing something fun and enjoying the day, Madelyn went to daycare and I went to a quick workout class and then home to clean. It’s much easier to do a deep cleaning when there isn’t a toddler running around destroying everything in her path. After 5+ hours of cleaning, I promised myself that I would never spend a Friday off of work cleaning again. Enter the long awaited chore chart.
I’m surprised this wasn’t done sooner. But it is here and I’m really hoping that it works, because spending your whole day cleaning is zero fun.
Also done this weekend? My longest run since the Chicago Marathon. After the marathon, I look a very long, much needed break from running. It was nice to casually get back into it and run for fun not because I had to. I had been keeping it around 3 or 4 miles each run, mostly because that’s all I could muster for the treadmill. But on Saturday, I was feeling really good and I just kept going.
Here’s what’s on the workout and dinner schedule this week:
Monday: Barre & leftovers from date night in (Recipe coming this week!)
Tuesday: Easy 3 miles/pasta with italian sausage, veggies and sauce
Wednesday: Barre/roasted chicken and butternut squash
Thursday: Run 3.5 + core / Fish tacos and beans
Friday: Much needed rest day! No set dinner plans.
I’m off to go get dinner prepared for Madelyn and then to get studying for my NASM test. I hope everyone has a good week!
What’s the one household chore you hate the most? Mine would be cleaning the shower! Luckily, I came across a very helpful pin that will hopefully make it less painless.
