A great start to this Thursday (TOL #18)

Happy Thursday!! How is everyone doing today?! I didn’t get a chance to pop in with a blog post yesterday, after posting on Tuesday I kind of was over the top stressed out. I mean, I couldn’t fall asleep Tuesday night, and thought of ALL the things to be stressed out about. What was I stressed about you ask? Subbing yesterday, rescheduling my nail appointment when she had nothing available for a whole month and hoped something would pop up, Michael not being home, and lastly, I was stressed about missing my alarm in the morning. What? These are the silliest things to be stressed about at 11pm, but I couldn’t help it.

I am linking this post up with Amanda for some Thinking Out Loud fun! img_8187Anyways, lets back up to Tuesday. After posting that honest blog post, I felt a little scared I guess to post it. What would people think after reading all about my struggles in finding what I want to be when I grow up? But after a while, and after much encouragement from my Mama (as always) I let it go. Of course, I was super anxious about subbing the next day (which was yesterday) so that didn’t really help. But my nephews sure did cheer me up once left work. I brought along a half dozen of donuts too!

I mean, could they get any cuter?! Later in the evening, we played a bunch and “built a boat” using pillows and blankets. I called it a fort but Gio wanted it to be a boat, so then I pretended we were rowing our boat to NeverLand 😉 hahaha. I just love playing pretend, especially with these boys! (Now if only real life could be more like playing pretend.) Then we played with buckets….built them up to knock them down. Oh what fun!

The rest of my Tuesday night was spent watching The Voice, and This Is Us. Did anyone else watch either of those? I don’t really like The Voice, I guess I never have been a big fan of Miley…well, beside her Hannah Montana days 😉 but I couldn’t get into it. On the other hand, This Is Us gets me EVERY TIME at the ending. I was a total bawling mess afterwards. Maybe that’s why I had a hard time sleeping?!?

Anyways, yesterday started very early, and without missing my alarm of course! (Stupid anxiety) I woke up at around 5:15, hopped on the treadmill for 15 minutes of a HIIT run, followed by 15 more minutes of incline walking. I then got on my yoga mat for 2 minutes of planks. I was one sweaty mess after that workout! After showering, I hopped in the car to grab my DD coffee to sip on while I finished getting ready for the day ahead. I subbed in a first grade classroom filled with 25 students. And the verdict? I survived. Haha. img_1988 It was SO HOT in there, and of course I chose to wear a racerback dress (with a regular bra-hello bra straps) and my jean jacket. And since I didn’t want to be inappropriate, I kept that baby on all day. Well guys, I felt like I worked out again and had run in a sauna. I never complain about being hot either, it was just super yucky. I most definitely ran into the shower when I got home. Then I was off to my sister’s house to play with my nephews!

CHEESE!!! 🙂 Makes my day so much better! We played until I headed out,picked up a salad, went to the grocery store for some fruit, and happily laid on the couch for the rest of the night watching Hallmark Movies I had DVR’d! I just love those feel good movies!

This morning started with 30 minutes of a HIIT run I put together. I know I did intervals yesterday too, but it was short so I figured I would bump it up this morning to get the burn all day long 😉 3 minutes of planks afterwards, and I was done my workout!

I went to my sister’s after getting ready for morning snuggles (my favorite) and to bring Gio to school!! 🙂


Such a great way to start my day!!! 🙂

I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!! Xoxo
