I'm not going to lie. I was on the struggle bus today. My legs were hurting in places I never knew existed. My lower back felt like there was something growing out of it. I was a hot mess.
I died on the rowing machine after 6 minutes. Sorry @slyani1. I used to be able to stay on the rowing machine for 20-30 minutes...it used to be my favorite machine.
I got home and stretched and even that was not happening. Foam roller...yeah my quads and hammies were screaming. And I like to stretch out my abs and back on the stability ball, but I don't know what was up with me. I kept losing balance and I did actually fall off several times.
We'll have to make sure tomorrow is a better day.
My Mom and Dad with my babes almost 14 years ago ❤ I grew up with such a strong sense of family and I'm so thankful for that. Yesterday, in the office, we had a round table discussion and were encouraged to express something we like/love about everyone in our group. Over and over, I heard praise for my commitment and relationship with my babes and the memories I make with them. There truly is no better compliment than telling me I'm a good mother. My sense of family and adventure really does come from my Dad. Before he became so sick, he was such an active parent. We were always at the park, beach, out playing sports, or going on spontaneous road trips! Dad loved life. We would go out for ice cream on a Friday night and end up in Santa Barbara, Arizona, or Sacramento for the weekend. We'd just buy clothes at our final destination 😂 I feel so blessed to have learned love and family the way I did from my parents and to be able to pass that on to my babes. Time is never promised and I've learned it's the most valuable gift we can offer. Wishing he was still here to watch my babes grow and see all the changes in my life and who I've become over the last 5 years, but I know he's proud and watching our adventures from the stars ✨
