Early Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to me!

As an early Mother's Day present, my husband signed us back up at the rec center!  Yea!  So without missing a beat, I was up and at 'em early this morning.

Kelly was going out of town, so it was supposed to be a solo run this morning; but as I woke up at 7 am and I could still hear rain falling, I opted to shut my eyes for a little bit longer. It's so nice listening to the rain, it was easy to let it lull me back to sleep.   I woke up to late to get to the rec center for Lydia's class, so I opted for circuit training instead.

The circuit training is what I've been avoiding for way too long.  And this morning, I remembered why.  It sucks.  It is hard, and it makes you sweat.  Buckets!  I tried to remember all the exercises in the circuit given to me so long ago.  And I tried to pretend that I didn't remember to Bosu ball sit ups.  But I know I'm only cheating myself, so I did them.  And they were hard, but still not as hard as I remember that very first time I did them.  Then I thought of how easy they would be if I had never stopped.  

But you can't live on regrets-you can only move forward.  

I remembered all 9 exercises, but I only got through one round of it before I had to go change my shoes to get ready for Zumba.  But I will just so happy to be back, that I was okay with it.  

Zumba was fun, as always.  There were a few people there that were happy to see me and had been wondering where I had been.  Class started with a few older songs, and I was just having a great time being back in the hip-shaking business.  

Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and I wish all mothers a wonderful, fun, and love-filled day!  I think as part of my day, I'll be taking my youngest for a bike ride.
