Hi There Friends!
Today was Girlie’s first day back to gymnastics after the holiday break. It was also my first straight up run since…. well… I’d rather not say. I had absolutely no expectations for this run. It was hard, but fun. I kept messing with my phone because I needed to have only the power songs from each workout playlist. Have you had runs like that? Sometimes the music doesn’t matter and sometimes it’s the only thing keeping my feet moving! I also haven’t bought an armband for my new phone yet. Fortunately the treadmills at the gym have cup holders that hold my phone just fine.
Girlie had an amazing first day back! She is so proud of herself (and I’m probably even prouder!) that she climbed the rope all the way to the top! I missed it though:-( Just before going to the rope her group had been on the balance beam and at one point our eyes met and she stumbled. So I looked away. (after giving an encouraging smile) Next thing I knew I saw her coming down the rope. I didn’t even know she made it to the top until she told me. Whomp, Whomp, Whomp.
Tomorrow I must run to Trader Joe’s and Best Buy during my lunch- no matter how cold it is! I’ve promised Girlie kale bites and I would really like to get the aforementioned armband. I’m not sure if I mentioned this but last time I lifted I used a belt clip to hold my phone on. It was a royal pain and I spent most of the workout with my phone clipped to my bra. ‘Cause being the only woman in a free weight area full of college boys isn’t conspicuous enough.
Oh, and check out the pretty scarf my MIL knitted me for Christmas:
I’ve got the fake smile going on because I took this first thing after getting ready for work this morning and I’m not a morning person. I really like the scarf a lot.
Have you ever missed a milestone because you glanced away at the wrong moment? (c’mon, make me feel better) Can you climb a rope? I can get a few feet up one but that’s as far as I’ve ever gotten.
