It was definitely an active day!
I went out this morning and even as I was jogging across the street I was wondering if I should just turn around. Everything felt tight and off kilter:( True enough I struggled and was slow for all but the last two minutes of my run. I did the absolute minimum and only got 3km in:(
After school I did L’s bootcamp. It was a doozy today and even she was tired! We did our usual tabatas but then also did a cardio interval in between each. The intervals were two each of: pogo jumping, see saw, explosive star jumps, lunge jumps to squat jumps. That alone was enough to make me sweat and then we did the tabatas in between. We all noticed there was a lot of sore wrists! We did:
curtsy lunge to reverse lunge
bear shoulder taps to plank jacks/ dips with alternate heel touches
v sit with pat pull downs/ dumbbell half get ups
banded plank leg raises
bench leaps/ plank tricep press backs
narrow squat to hammer curl to wide squat and hammer curl/ twisting mountain climber
And I seem to have managed to block the other two stations🤣
This evening it was time for Zumba. The last class and I’m still not good at it🤣. I’d been looking forward to it ending and trying something new but then I saw the friendly/ cute TOC in the gym and wished I had some more Wednesday nights to go to!🤣🤣🤣
When I got home tonight I did 50 squats, 50 plié squats, 100 standing crunches, 25 v ups, 100 front kicks, 100 back kicks, 100 roundhouse kicks, 100 hamstring curls, 100 jabs, 100 uppercuts, 100 crosses.
It was a nice day because it felt like we were productive.
This morning we did printing- mastered the letter v:)
We then finished our Father’s Day gifts- a rock that says You Rock. We did them over two days- the first day we painted them with acrylic paint and the second day we decorated them. I’m actually happy with how they turned out:)
We made simple cards and decorated an envelope to put it all in.
After our break we tackled making 3D objects out of toothpicks and clay. I had never done this, but the kids did great! They made one on their sheet, identified the faces, edges, and vertices, got a picture with it and then destroyed it up make the next. I thought it would be chaos but they were super engaged and they learned so much! We reviewed the worksheet afterwards and I was super impressed with what they knew immediately. I tried to give you a picture but once again I’m out of space.
This afternoon we tackled nutrition. It’s all just changed so none of my resources are up to date, but the children still seemed to enjoy it:).
I just ate lots of little things today so we’ll see if that works better or worse for me.
I ate: fruit salad with yogurt, mini homemade larabar, egg, tuna on crackers snackit, coconut chips, salad, wiener, mini scone, Rice Krispie square.
As I write this, I realize it’s probably s good thing I exercised a lot today. Maybe tomorrow I’d better go back to my four small things!
Well I’m off to sleep.
