I took down this morning’s post because after reading a few comments and looking at the situation from their perspective I realized I was not a great example and that is the last thing I want to do. I worked out after my root canal because I felt amazing, I felt normal. I ate apples with Brooke, we played together at the park and I worked on the computer during her nap like I normally do. I honestly didn’t even think much of it for the entire rest of the day. The dental work did not affect me like it may for other people and I do not want anyone to feel like they need to run if they don’t feel good afterwards. I just lucked out because I did feel great and I just went about my day like I normally do. I asked my dentist after he was finished if it was okay to run and he said ‘sure, as long as you feel good.’ Thank you to those readers that expressed concern and helped me to see things from a different perspective though. I NEVER want to spread the message to workout when you don’t feel good. I am nowhere near perfect but I am sure trying my hardest to post good/helpful information on this corner of the internet but every now and then I most definitely mess up!
Let’s start the day again fresh with what I was going to post this afternoon:)
-Because I like to snapchat while I am on the treadmill.
-I am pretty talented at multitasking while on the treadmill. I can even prepare Brooke’s snacks while running at the same time.
-Playing a little football in Target with your homies is always a good idea:
-This avocado was $2. I usually don’t spend that much on avocados but for some reason I just had a really good feeling about this one (I call it intuition). It was worth every penny. It was probably the best avocado I have had from a grocery store and that is why I felt the need to write this paragraph about it.
-She asks for steamed broccoli as a snack. Our love for broccoli is in our DNA.
-Baby cheeks. My nephew is the sweetest little man which has been such a blessing for my sister because of her awful back pain lately. She gets surgery this week, I’m worried sick about her.
-Brooke goes through her Disneyland pictures every single day. I think she is trying out some subliminal messaging on me.
-My brother posted this picture of my mom on Mother’s Day. I think she looks so much like my sister here!
-Sometimes I feel bad that Brooke doesn’t have siblings to play with (and if she does have them at some point it won’t be for a very long time) but then I remember how she has her cousins. These kiddos are crazy close and treat Brooke just like she is their little sister.
-Just go ahead and add THIS SONG to your workout playlist.
-Feel free to check out my latest Women’s Running Post!
MEGAN sent me this workout to try last Saturday and I loved it (afterwards… during it I thought I was going to die).
You can see all of the moves on this video:
The highlight of the entire day yesterday happened at 8:43 pm.
Brooke told her first joke ever. It came out of nowhere and it got everyone in the room laughing so hard. I am a proud mom. Now I just need to remember what the joke was.
-Neither of us understand how to eat an apple without almond butter at this point in our lives.
-Cottage cheese and grapes are back in my life and I’m pretty thrilled about that.
Got any Tuesday Tangents for me!?!? Please share!
Cottage cheese—> what do you combine it with?
Parents reading—> what are some snacks that your kids currently love?
What is your workout for today?!?!
