ran 3 miles
forgot that I did some exercises in the park while the kid was running around. park bench pushups, dips and bulgarian split squats again using the back of the bench. I always feel like a wacko when I exercise in the playground and all the other parents are just sitting around. It was a beautiful Sunday and I had to fight with the kid to get him outside. His favorite activities are reading, Wii and computer games. sigh.
Saturday's workout was a special one: An outdoor yoga class taught by Kevin and Dana Courtney of Kula Yoga fame. Kevin led us through some fun Qigong exercises, which involved bouncing on our feet, with loose limbs, and occasionally making strange sounds. (Say the word "hung" without opening your mouth while contracting your diaphragm sharply.) While we were doing this, a small dog name Milosz ran among us. Lovely. And healthy. Count it.
in between the kids first taekwondo class and a play date I was able to get to the gym for 40 min. for lots of reps and 25 min. run/walk. It seems like we finally found a sport that the kid likes. He was really into the class and excited to practice his new moves with me. Yippee! happy mommy moment!
personal project this week has been practicing the piano. I've been trying for 20-30 min. every day. Even got the kid to play a bit!
