Last night I completed a lower body workout with Ryne that included split squats. They are my arch nemesis, but I finally figured my footing out enough to get them over with as quickly as possible. Then I curled up in a ball in the corner of the gym. To the person that invented these: “Yeahhhh, thanks for that. Jerk.” Check out my facial expression. I think that’s a mix of fear, pain, and confusion. They really are an awesome move, but man, they are tough.
Today after work, I went to the gym to run sprints. Other than my failed attempt at a short run this past weekend, I haven’t run in over a week. My foot hasn’t been bothering me as much, so I took full advantage of that. I ran 2.5 miles that included a sizable chunk of sprint intervals. It’s official. My legs are dead.
Oh, and let’s just discuss my outfit change. I headed into the bathroom a nerdy, old teacher and I left the bathroom a nerdy, old teacher in absurd amounts of neon. At least neon makes me feel like a cool kid, right?
Dinner more than made up for my lack of fashion sense. I pretty much bathe my food in buffalo sauce at this point.
Maddux wants y’all to know that he is super stoked about his new toy. My friend Logan brought him a belated Christmas gift and he is obsessed. He cried bloody murder at dinner and had to have it in his high chair with him. I seriously didn’t want to cave and let him do that, but he was honestly distraught. He loves his “teen”.
Before I go tonight, I wanted to let y’all know what types of posts will be coming up soon. I asked y’all the other day for some suggestions, and you really came through. I posted a meal plan request yesterday, but there were a few more topics that were mentioned.
How The Heck My Perm Turned Out
Typical Week Of Workouts
A Day In The Life/Hour by Hour Post
Working Full Time and Working Out
Life Inside the Classroom
Y’all know they will all probably awkwardly weave themselves into random posts, but it’ll totally work out. I’ll definitely get around to all of them. If you have any other requests, just let me know! Obviously, I’m not an expert at, well, anything. But that doesn’t mean I can’t share my perspective, right? Plus it will be fun to see if I can stick to one specific topic for an entire post. It’ll be a challenge, or something like that…
Now, I better get off the internet. Ryne and I are celebrating some good news tonight for both of us. Yeah, both of us. How awesome is that? I promise to fill y’all in soon. In the mean time, I can tell y’all that we’re also celebrating the possibility of Maddux’s first snow day sometime this week!! So exciting! I know, how southern can I be? See y’all tomorrow!
