Good morning! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has started off wonderfully!
I can’t believe I am typing this, but I woke up with yet another headache this morning. I am so ready to be headache free. It is definitely coming from my neck and shoulders, so I really might need to book a massage appointment because I can’t go on like this!
Today I am sharing a quick post on what my Monday looked like! It was a great day filled with lots of time with my nephews! What did your day look like?
In the morning I got my nails done, and I actually got my lash extensions removed (the horror). I just did it, because as I said yesterday, I was getting a little annoyed by them and was thinking of giving my lashes a break for a little. Not to mention I could save a little bit of money every two weeks. Let me tell you, the first thing I did when I got home was wash my face and scrub my eyes!!! And then of course I put makeup on, because it is definitely going to take a little while to get used to…I look pretty
ugly and lashless. Boo. I really loved not having to wear any makeup if I didn’t want to, because let’s be real I pretty much never wore makeup, only on vacation. I’m sure I will get them back on soon enough, but for right now I just have to suck it up and wear loads of eye makeup to hide my minuscule lashes.
The afternoon consisted of playing at the park with my nephews. It was a beautiful day out and it was loads of fun! Gio and I “raced” down the slides that were side by side and of course he won every time! I was actually surprised I fit on those things, haha! It was just so fun to play! When was the last time you went and played outside?
After the park, I went home to get a package together to send to my Disbride Secret Pal (omg, this round ends next month!!), and binge watched older episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County that were on tv, while getting in bursts of exercises so I wasn’t a total lazy bum. All I have to say is UGH, it reminded me why I don’t like these ladies anymore. So much drama and they are so mean to each other! Grown women being catty and nasty to each other…Lord help them!! RHOC was my very first real housewives series that I got into so it really is my favorite, but with each season that comes out my heart stings a little more for these ladies.
A little later in the day after finally shutting off RHOC, I went over to my parent’s house to visit them quickly before picking up a salad for dinner. (I literally get a salad every single day for dinner…it’s just too easy to pick one up instead of making one myself, even though I go home and put all the fruit into it. No shame at all.) After I ate dinner, I went back to my sister’s house to play with my nephews some more. They just got out of the tubby so they smelt so yummy! Is it just me or do you sniff your babies too? I mean, I am a total weirdo I know that, but how could I not just smell them for a couple minutes until they realize what crazy Auntie is doing?!? Also, I think Enzo watched Baby Shark on the iPad one hundred times, because I still to this minute cannot get that song out of my head. Don’t know what it is? Go watch it and then try to get that song out of your head. You’re welcome 😉
Despite my headache this morning, I got my workout on! I started with 60 seconds of each exercise, repeated 3 times through: forearm planks, plank jacks, high plank, side planks (each side 30 seconds), shoulder tap planks, single arm planks, and plank hip dips. You know I love planks! After, I hopped on my treadmill where I started running….but quickly changed to an incline walk for 45 minutes because of that annoying headache. But, once I was done with my workout I definitely felt a little better!
I am working today, but hope to get to spend some time with Michael if he is able to get out of work this afternoon! We shall see. 🙂
I hope you have a beautiful day! Xoxo ♥♥
