Whew...what a busy day it has been so far. I don't know if it is the exercise or just that I have clear goals in mind but I woke up today feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. After breakfast, I started cleaning and got my daughter's room cleaned. I packed up about half of her toys in a big rubbermaid container. She has too many toys for a 16 month old, anyway. When she starts getting bored of her toys now, I can just switch them out with the other toys I packed instead of buying new ones. Her room is all organized, separate bins for different types of toys, a basket for animals and a basket for dolls. This is how I usually keep it, but it only last a few days. i am hoping since there is now half the toys it will be easier to keep up with. I now only have to organize her closet, but I am holding off doing that until I buy those nifty vacuum bags to store all the clothes she has outgrown.
Then Harliegh and I turned off the tv and decorated an Anniversary card for my parents and a Birthday card for her other Grandma with some paint and sponges adn stickers. After lunch we sat and read through nearly 10 books! Then I straightened the living room.
At naptime I started my Wii Fit workout. I did the same thing as yesterday, picking workouts from different categories, but I tried not to do the same one as yesterday. I was a little sore from yesterdays workouts, especially in my arms and abs, but I was ready to do some more. As I was nearing my goal of 30 minutes of working out something compelled me to attempt a 10 minute run! YIKES! But I did it, and I finished it! I am thinking I might try this everyday at the end of my workout. I want to try running outside when the weather gets better so this should help train me for that. Plus, I burned 60 calories on just that one workout. I felt the pain afterwards....but now...I feel great!
So for today I have worked out 30 min and burned 150 calories. Not Bad. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I did an additional 30 min workout last night and burnt another 130.
I need to work on my writing...it is my only goal I have ignored. Does this blog count as writing?
