I can’t lie to you, People.
As of yesterday morning I had an entirely different post written for today.
It was a pretty good post, too.
I chatted about the need to focus on strengthening our core literally & figuratively in order to achieve total health and life balance.
I waxed eloquently about core values, provided examples of ways to uncover/identify yours (hello masters degree Im not using!) & then shared my five core values.
Top of my list? AUTHENTICITY.
Which led me to yank/postpone the post.
It meshed perfectly with a different giveaway yet it didnt read authentic to me under the umbrella of First Person Friday.
(**hang on as we veer wildly off previously planned path**)
Yet before I truly begin to drag you into my head on a weekly basis I wanted to stop and answer this question:
I’m excited about your new Friday thing. What are your days like? Id love a glimpse into your life! Not what you eat etc. as MizFit but what you do all day! thanks!
It’s kinda boring.
It’s authentically me.
Please to enjoy.
Immediately after waking I head here (yes it’s the crack of dawn. no I dont set an alarm. Im a firm believer in the notion if Im not up-at-crack & excited for the day I must need more sleep. Im always up-at-crack)
Once Ive grabbed that I head here and work for a couple of hours:
Why YES! My desk *is* stunningly clutter-free (wink) & kind of blah but I have an amazing mural to my left which totally sparks my creativity:
Next, when there’s about 30 minutes or so left before Ren Man departs for the day, I stop working & head over to the cardio center for a workout:
After that things take a turn for the predictable.
We may hit the playground.
Or hula hoop.
Or do some carpet roller skating if it’s already 100 degrees outside (Id like to blame the carpet on the Tornado– but sadly it’s my bumbum which tends to spontaneously slam to the ground. We started skating 2 weeks ago & before that it had been 18 years since I’d skated. FYI it’s NOT like riding a bike—-at least for me.)
Some days we’ll head here:
and do this until they yell at us:
(alas, Im not joking about the yellage. Im a great role model!)
Then it’s play time again:
Sometimes my day then begs calls for this:
Though I do try valiantly (if by ‘valiantly’ you mean 3 or so times per week—which I do) to opt for this (my beloved frozen MetRx shake):
Then it’s often on to the library where we read books, make crafts & rip eyeball off aforementioned crafts before even leaving the building:
Some days we terrorize the local Barnes & Noble for a while…
Until it’s FINALLY time to start winding down for the day:
(The Tornado demanded & snapped that one)
Then the nighttimeroutineGLAM ensues (dinner, TornadoRebelling, bath, TornadoRebelling, books read, TornadoRebelling) until she’s asleep.
Then it’s back to this:
And usually some time spent with this (sans Tornado):
Until this comes home (& we hang until bed):
(**Veering wildly back on different path. Please to not ask WHY just know it’s not happenin’ again)
