(workout at the bottom of this post)
Well yesterday turned out quite differently than I expected!
As I was driving to my third (and final) client’s house of the morning, I got a phone call from my friend Heidi saying that one of her babies was sick. The trip to Chicago was off! Although I was bummed about missing a day of shopping, I was pretty stoked to have an impromptu free day. It was only 9:00 and I had the whole day ahead of me!
Since I’d planned on spending the entire day with Heidi, I made a quick stop by her casa to say “hey” while the babies were sleeping. It was nice to catch up –I always love a good chat with a girlfriend, whether it’s shopping up a storm and kickin’ it on the couch
My day’s next endeavor was a long walk with Niko around a lake that’s fairly close to our house.
I usually just walk her around the neighborhood or the trail, so the new scenery was a nice change up! I think Niko enjoyed it, too.
The rest of the day involved a lot of reading, playing with pictures, cleaning up some memory cards, yoga, and even a nice relaxing bath, with the help of this product:
I picked it up at my chiro/homeopathic doctor’s office last week, and just tried it out yesterday. Love it!
In my senior year of college, I took baths at least once a week. A little wine, a good book, some candles, and bath salt, and I was in heaven. Then, for some reason, when I entered the working world I stopped taking them. Shane also went from second shift to first shift during this time, so that could have something to do with it. In the past few weeks, I’ve been adding them back in once a week, and I don’t know why I ever stopped!
Anyway, I digress. My point is that this stuff is awesome. It’s a natural salt with tons of trace minerals, including an ish load of magnesium, which has a lovely calming effect.
I’m such a damn sucker for crap like this. I also walked out of his office with a calming tea/drink (which I haven’t tried yet,) aminos, and almost got a homeopathic sleep aid. I’m a tough sell, let me tell ya!
I wasn’t really quite sure what to do with myself for a good part of the day! I tell myself it’d be awesome to only work part time, or stay at home, and that people who do are lucky, but honestly, I think I’d get way too bored. I like being productive!
So instead of me talking about the rest of my day, here’s a workout I put together for you guys! It’s the one I did on Friday – and it left me sore until Sunday night! All you need is a medicine ball and yourself
As always, please check with your physician before beginning any new nutrition or exercise program.
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you tried the workout!
I’m off to get a run in on this gorgeous morning. Today’s going to be a busy one for this girl. I’ve got a few new clients to train (yay!)
Have a great Tuesday, my friends!
What do you typically do on an unexpected day off?
Are you a tough sell? Or will you buy anything that sounds good for ya? (like me)
