Early Morning Exercise

Today is a snow day.  And the great thing is that we really got a dash of snow!  I am bummed because we didn’t get to have MOPS today and it was going to be a really great meeting.  I set my alarm for 4:38 am to get up and go to the gym to workout.  I looked outside and there was nothing – just as I suspected.  But I flipped on the news and saw that schools were closed.  Go figure!  I went on to the gym for a torture session and because there were so few people in the class I had to be paired up with our instructor for some exercises involving a partner.  Agghh!  If you only knew. . . imagine me and Ms. Skinny instructor.  She makes a sit up look like a piece of cake.  Everything she does seems so effortless.  And then there is me – roly poly, whining and whincing with each and every difficult move (which is all of them)!  And worst of all is that you can’t cheat at all when you are paired up with the instructor.  I know. . . I know. . . I know. . . when you cheat at exercising, you are only cheating yourself. . . blah. . .blah. . . blah!!!  I am doing good to be there and workout for the entire hour.  Anyway. . . I made it through the workout and worked up a good sweat.  Only to be leaving and hear two of my girlfriends say they were headed upstairs for a little more exercise – maybe some running on the track or the eliptical machine.  Okay – give me a break!  I felt good about the fact that I was one of five that showed up despite schools being closed.  And that was good enough for me.  🙂  

It was really nice to come home and lay on the couch and watch it start to snow outside.  My girls were thrilled and so I bundled everyone up (20 minute ordeal) and we lasted all of 10 minutes outside before everyone was soooo cold and noses were running and we had to go potty. . . not to mention that they kept trying to eat traces of snow off the bushes and the ground!  EEWWW – YUK!  But I am grateful that they got to at least play in the snow for a few short mintues.  As we were coming in one of them mentioned that some hot chocolate would be really yummy.  I agreed.  As we were shedding the outdoor clothes and waiting on our water to heat up for the hot chocolate, Ava Jane said, “Mommy this was the most fun snow day.”  That made my heart smile.  So, now, how are you supose to end a blog entry?  It kinda seems like I need some great statement or something.  But wait, I guess I am not writing a book.  These are just my random thoughts, right??  Someone let me know if I am doing this correctly or not.  I plan to spif things up a bit on my page as soon as I have time to sit down with some blogging pros and figure it all out!  And now I have another entry on another topic. . . can I do that??
