So it was little bit windy last night…
It also wreaked havoc on the neighbors’ Halloween decorations. GIANT SPIDER IN OUR PATH!!
Pippa and I ran an easy 3 & change before I went home to do this quick WOD from my wonderful WOD Genius app:
Since I was working out on the cold hard cement of our back patio, I chose to do burpee deadlifts with dumbbells so I wouldn’t have to drag out a mat. Finished in 11:23!
I knew something felt weird!! MY PANTS WERE ON BACKWARDS THAT WHOLE TIME!! Haha.Oh well. Not really noticeable, but I couldn’t figure out why my pants wouldn’t stay up. I thought it was all the weight I’ve been losing. Kidding!
After my morning piano students, I got cracking on a big platter of cookies for Kevin to take to work tomorrow. I made two of my big faves from Two Peas & Their Pod: Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip & Pumpkin Gingersnap.
I challenged myself not to eat any cookie dough while I was baking. I’m actually a huge believer in tasting the batter, but I tend to get carried away with cookie dough. I just didn’t want the sugared up feeling today! Plus I’m trying to stay super on track with my boot camp since we are going to be out of town this weekend (HOORAY).
Was our second ballroom dance class.
Wow, I did NOT do well. I had to be taken aside by the instructor to practice the new steps. My face was turning so RED that I couldn’t even pay attention to what he was teaching me! I’m so used to being the teacher that it’s very humbling for me to be put into the position of a struggling learner. I’m certain it’s good for me (and my students too)!
I got it now. Don’t worry. I’ve even made Kevin practice with me twice already. My problem is that they usually teach the guys’ part first, and the girls are supposed to do the reverse. I don’t translate that very well and get a little tangled up! Nothing a little Menchie’s couldn’t fix! I saw on their Facebook page that they had a new Pumpkin flavor so I had to go! I think I need to unsubscribe!!!
My velcro dog doesn’t like it when I leave her at home! Haha.I can’t believe she actually fits in that window sill. She looks hilarious. The dogs had better enjoy that room while they can because soon enough it’s going to be renovated into my new piano studio! Right now it’s where I throw all my empty Amazon Prime boxes. What – you don’t have a room for that too?
My little ducklings! This is how I lure them out to the garage where they currently hang while I teach piano (with Pippa the escape artist in a crate). Aren’t Boyd’s eyes hilarious?? This is why I take 50+ pics a day. Lol.
Do you ever put your pants on backwards? Yes. I’ve also worn shirts backwards for long periods of time. And inside out. I’m not a morning person.
What have you struggled to learn lately? Ballroom dancing & double unders. I’m really pretty klutzy. Running and burpees don’t require large amounts of finesse.
