Good day, mates! And a happiest of happy Saturdays to ya!
After last Saturday of being gone all day in College Station, it's nice to just stick to the routine of the day- grading papers, coffee, Food Network, smoothie bowls, Wal-Mart...you know, the essentials.
This week in my workout world, they turned into my time to de-stress and unplug for a few minutes each day. It was another wild and crazy week- two after-school meetings, three during-school meetings, Master's work, not to mention days filled with the ridiculous shenanigans of seventy-one third graders...
by last night, I must admit, I had bottled up and pressed back all of my frustrations and stressors of the week, resulting in a violent eruptive meltdown in front of my poor husband...were my baby momma hormones part of this Mt. Vesuvius? I'd say so...nonetheless, I was reminded yesterday that I've got to be more intentional about acknowledging my stress and passing it off to my Savior rather than trying to take it all on myself...lesson learned God. Lesson learned.
As my body slowly starts to change as it prepares to bring the little sweet potato-sized boy into the world in another 4.5 months, my workouts certainly are changing, too. I'm making sure I really listen to my body and manage my stress as best I can. I'm workin on some pregnancy/health-related posts, so stay tuned to here about those. In the meantime, keep moving in a way that brings you joy and helps make your day more healthful and happier.
