Yesterday was okay, I had a break at the gym and it felt good... but today felt *wonderful*! After dropping off the kids I headed straight to the cardio cinema. Again, I have no idea what show played on the screen, but it kept me occupied. I did the treadmill for 40 minutes... 2 miles and over 200 calories burned. I did an incline every now and then, but was fighting feeling sore from yesterday so I didn't push myself too hard. Tomorrow is Sunday and the gym doesn't have childcare on Sundays, so I'll get the day off. Maybe I should have saved mowing my lawn for tomorrow rather than today. Atticus helped me mow, he took his toy lawn mower and followed me around, mowing in the same manner I did. It was adorable.
My sister took Atticus for about 4 hours today which was a major break for me... and later tonight we had a dinner party and he stayed inside and watched movies. My aunt held Emmett the whole time, so I felt childless... really I did. The breaks were good. I feel relieved and fresh. My stress feels low and I feel very happy.
