Happy Monday! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a weekend recap, but I figured there was no better time than the present. We’ve recently gotten into the habit of letting our two-year-old plan our weekends, which has been surprisingly fun. We get Japanese and Chick-fil-A on the reg, we play with the water hose like it’s going out of style, and we always make time for dessert. It’s like the best life ever, y’all.
Friday night, after stuffing ourselves with hibachi rice, I’m pretty sure we just went home and passed out. I recall nothing, but we probably read some books and did some puzzles. I really need to start photographing everything like I used to, because remembering things is not my strong suit.
Saturday morning I headed to Pure Barre Augusta with my friend Molly. It was only my second class, but I’m already starting to understand the process. Sort of. I’ll get there.
I met the fam at the market afterwards, where I was greeted with purple mouths and dinosaur balloons. The kid gets what he wants these days, remember?
I’m honestly not sure why there have been bouncy houses downtown every single weekend, but we’re digging it. He was terrified of them for the longest time, but he broke through the fear a week or so ago. Oddly enough, we’ve run across them several times since then. No complaining here.
It had been too long since Ryne and I took pints of ice cream to the face while watching a Redbox DVD, so we clearly had to make that happen. He got chocolate something or other but I got cheesecake, which in my humble opinion, is Bruster’s best flavor by far. You’d have to be an idiot to get anything else. Sorry, Ryne.
Sunday was spent swimming and doing yard work. I did something in the middle of those two things. I put my feet in the pool and pulled random weeds within arm’s reach. Hard work, you guys. Hard work.
Oh, remember when I said I was going to run more? Well, I didn’t do that this weekend. And now I’ve totally just committed to something else instead. You think I have a bit of a commitment problem? I should probably work on that. Eh. What am I saying? I’ll never learn.
Today I signed up for my first full month of Pure Barre and it happened to coincide with the first day of a 20 out of 30 challenge. So now I’m going to try to make 20 classes this month. Partly because I’m insane and party because I need some motivation in my life.
The fact that I worked out all of 2.5 times in May probably has something to do with why I’m actually really excited to sign my life away for a month. I need the push. And, on the plus side, I tend to improve in a lot of areas when I start to work on just one. I bet I’ll run more often, clean the house with a little more oomph, and eat less donuts or something. I’m kidding about the donuts. Some things never change. Ever.
Question: Have any of y’all ever completed a workout challenge? Did you survive to tell the tale?
