Nailed It!

We tarted Focus T25 today!  We went to bed together at 10:00, got up early and started the workout at 6:00. Ayden woke around 7 (he typically wakes around 7:30 or 8 am) and David made us breakfast while I gave Ayden his morning snuggles. It was pretty awesome to get up and get a workout in early!  It freed up more of my day but I was tired all day. I'm sure after a few days this non morning person will be bounding out of bed for a good dose of endorphins to start the day!  Haha, In the past I have been known to crave exercise if I am consistent enough; so I do have hopes that this 10 week program will have that effect.

As for the first cardio workout, it was intense and went by quickly. It's fast paced (no breaks) and keeps you on your toes (sometimes literally!). My booty is already sore which is awesome and I broke a good sweat. David and I enjoyed the extra time together in the morning and even Ayden waking a little early worked out well because he took his nap earlier and therefore was asleep before 8:00 which is what we like. 

Sun butter, anyone?
At dinner, I asked David, "Should we go swimming or do you just want to veg for the night?" Because he was pretty tired all day too. Before David could answer, Ayden says, "Ummm, ummm, da pool!"  It was so funny!  We forget sometimes that everyday he becomes more and more an active member of our family and household. He started talking about splashing and the beach ball, as well as wanting to see his Naunie and Papow (in his own toddler way of speaking, of course). We couldn't say no to all of that on top of his excitement about recalling all of the fun we have swimming so that is how we spent the rest of Ayden's evening. Now Ayden is in bed, David has done the dishes and it is time for us to unplug and have our weekly at home date night. 

Today, Ayden gave us a nice break from toddler meltdowns and we all just enjoyed each other. Life is good. 

Have you started a new work out plan recently?  Are you on the Focus T25 bandwagon? Do share!
