How ya hangin this weekend?
Hopefully you are getting in a little extra time for you- a little extra naptime, workout time, family time, cooking time, etc.
For me, it’s all the above!
I’ve got my FABULOUS mommy in town, and she is workin’ her tail off here at my house, certainly earning her keep! From painting over the maroon, Asian-themed wallpaper in my foyer that doesn’t quite float my boat to reviving my backyard to babysitting McNugget while daddy does his state guard thang in Austin, she is a worker bee FOR SURE.
Like I told y’all, though, I’m keeping her wine glass filled, her dinner plate loaded, and her McNugget quota overflowed.
This week in my workout world, I’ve been jogging a little more and more.
Why? Because the humidity is gradually dropping, temperatures are chilling out, and it just feels right. Which just further reminds me that when it comes to fitness, you do you.
Love triathalons or 5Ks or just walking your dog? Sweet, keep it up!
Or are Groupon pilates classes, early morning yoga sessions, and studio cycling more your jam? Peachy, getcha some!
As long as you’re moving in a way that is both joyful and sustainable, keep it up. If you hate jogging, don’t do it and try something else.
Working out and being fit is a lifelong commitment, not just a temporary fix to a tight dress or snug jeans.
So get movin and stay movin, y’all. And here’s how I did just that this week!
