Today is our first, and chances are, only snow day of the school year. It doesn't seem any worse than the other snow storms we've had this year, so I'm kinda thinking the school administrators were feeling the need for a snow day as well.
And apparently the hour or so spent outside playing in the snow REALLY wore out my 3yr old, because she is currently passed out on the couch, & I was planning on snuggling on down with her...until she peed on me. Then I decided to change my sweat pants & blog instead. She is still in her pee pants because, hey, damage is already done & she usually doesn't sleep more than an hour. Pretty sure a bath & scrubbing down the couch can hold for that long.
So, the Sweat to Spring Break Challenge at the Y is all but in the bag. Yay! I've got 600 miles (for me that translates into 6 group fitness classes) to complete in the next 2 weeks. Barring a natural disaster or, Heaven forbid, some nasty sickness hits, I've got plenty of wiggle room to get there. But I've built up so much momentum, working out 6 days a week that I am not ready to let that go & let myself relax too much. I wanna go hard for the last two weeks of this challenge & still give it my best.
Plus, added incentive: the scale is on the down turn again! On 3/3 I weighed in at 148.2 & today I weighed in at 146.8. I know the extra workouts have affected water retention, so I have been taking them with a grain of salt. But with Sunday being my rest day & last night just being a rather quick HIIT class & jogging a REALLY slow mile, I think it let my body really finish recovering. My weight has been fluctuating so much in that 148-152lb window for so long, that being below that this morning really gave me hope that I am finally coming out of this plateau!
Now to keep this momentum going! I've noticed a tendancy to self-sabotage, so I'm going to have to really keep on top of my stress level & what foods I allow into the house.
& of course, once I decided to keep this workout momentum going, we get a massive snow day! The kids were out of school & since school was cancelled, I kind of assumed that the babysitting service at the Y would be closed too. By the time I decided to call & check, there wasn't enough time to get to my fave spin class. So I decided to give it another go for the evening Body Pump class...& it got cancelled! I had originally planned on attending both, & I end up at neither! Plan C was to wait for my husband to get home from work, & we could go to the Y & workout together...& now it's probably gonna be 6:30 before he gets home.
It's starting to look like a date with the treadmill in the fitness center after the kids are in bed! I'll play it by ear, & if it ends up that today is a rest day, then so be it-- Tomorrow is a new day.
Hope everyone is having a great & warm day!
