Wow! Weekends just fly by, don’t they?
I traveled home to southern Indiana for the weekend because my family had church pictures today. I drove from Indy to Bloomington yesterday after school and met my sister KT there – she goes to IU. KT drove home from Bloomington, so I could keep Lillian out of trouble.
Yesterday at school we had PJ Day to raise money for Haiti. My classroom raised $70! I debated forever on whether or not to wear pajamas to school. It just seems awkward for the teacher to wear PJs, but I decided to be fun and my kids were excited about seeing their teacher in PJ pants!!
Upon arriving home last night, I was greeted by the many treats that my mom always has prepared especially for us. She had just baked chocolate chip cookies. They are delish, and I did not stop with just one! or two! I actually had three, then decided I had better stop right there. I definitely enjoyed them, but felt guilty afterwards. I just hate when I come home and pig out. But I haven’t done it in awhile, so whatev. Yesterday I craved chocolate all day at school and I think it is because I knew I was coming home for the weekend, and home = chocolate. It just motivated me to have an awesome workout this morning – and another one coming tonight!!
Lilly actually let me sleep in until 8! I have not slept that late since she has been a part of my life!! I got up and gave myself time to wake up and build up some energy. I had a big Saturday breakfast with a Sun-Main Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with PB and a banana. The perfect fuel for a workout!
I started my TurboJam session with Cardio Party Remix, followed by half of Cardio Party 3. With church pictures coming up, I was working on a tight schedule. But these two were perfect. It ended up being a 55 minute Cardio Party session. To pump up my workout and increase intensity, I wore my sister’s Beachbody weighted handgloves. I love them and have decided to order myself a pair!!

I felt great after this sweat session and not quite so bad about my three cookies from last night. After the cardio, I went for some Ab Jam, which felt great! I need to bust this one out more often. Next, it was time to shower and get ready for pics.
Lil and Mom
KT snapped a pic of Lil and I before we left for church pics. It is not often I get prettied up while at home. Usually I am either lounging in pajamas or sporting my sweaty workout gear. Nice, huh?
Well guys, I have some papers calling my name – time to grade :(
