This morning I got up, fed my children (Ryne and Buddy), and headed to school to start to clean and organize my classroom. I didn’t even know where to start! It was absolutely terrifying:
My mom graciously offered to help and we ended up making some pretty good progress, but I’ll wait to show an “after” picture until I have it nicely decorated… if and when that ever happens! Then, as if helping me clean up wasn’t enough, the madre offered to buy me a late lunch. Score! I chose a place I had never been before: Einstein Bros Bagels. (I was hoping it would be as amazing as Bruegger’s Bagels, my bagel heaven!) Einstein’s closes at 4pm and we arrived before 3:30… plenty of time to grab an iced coffee and a bagel before they shut down for the day, right? Wrong. We walked in and all the chairs were already on the tables, there were only several bagel choices remaining, and wait for it… NO iced coffee because she had “already dumped it.” Instead of going with my gut reaction (which would be flipping over tables and probably flipping the bird), I calmly ordered my bagel and left. I ordered a Veg Out sandwich on an onion bagel. It was a pretty decent bagel, but the experience definitely left a bad taste in my mouth.
After eating my bagel in the car (seriously? why did they have all the chairs up?), I headed back home to relax before hitting up the gym for the first time in two weeks. I planned on going to Bodypump, but I wasted too much time at the apartment and missed it. Whoops. Then I planned to go run at the park, but it was STILL too freaking hot. So the dreadmill it was. At least Ryne agreed to tag along… he rarely ever gets the itch to run! I’m so glad he wanted to go because it gave me the push I needed to get in there. After a few crappy (and intensely hot runs in the Keys) I was nervous to get moving again! Can you see the fear in my eyes?!
I did a short 3 mile, 30 minute interval run. I’m not sure what Ryne did, but I’m pretty positive it was a hell of a lot faster paced than anything I could ever do.
And a gratuitous Buddy picture:
Now I’m hanging out at the apartment waiting on a few friends to come over. Should be fun! “See” y’all tomorrow!
