Our Evening Routine

Yesterday we had our typical evening routine:

Dance party/play time. Our Amazon Fire Stick allows easy access to YouTube on our TV. Multiple music videos inspired Ina to get fully dressed up for her performance. At some point the horse joined in.

Dinner: last night we had a favorite: slow cooker picadillo with brown rice and a cucumber/tomato/red onion salad.

So good. 

Clean up: I am trying to encourage everyone to pick up their stuff before we go upstairs. I have been setting the oven timer for 5 minutes and it is amazing how much stuff can be picked up and put away in 5 minutes. It is also amazing how much more calm I feel before bed and when I wake up if the house is semi-picked up. 

Bath: Now that Cora is old enough to hold her own in the water, I am more free to go about my bedtime routine (wash face, brush teeth, lay out my gym clothes, etc.) In the winter I let them stay in there for at least 30 minutes and they love it. 

Story Time: Cora has a new love for The Pout Pout Fish which brings back so many memories of Ina loving it. I need to master my voices again. 

Lights out at 8:15. This allows for plenty of sleep before my 4:35 alarm. 

I am so looking forward to the sun being out longer. I forget every year how much energy I get from simple daylight. 

Wednesday’s Workout (at Fitness Tiger KC):

  • 4 minute AMRAP x 4
    • First two: add two reps each round
      • 4 single arm chest press (25#/30#)
      • 4 kb swings (40#)
    • Last two (2 35# KB) add two reps each round
      • 8 split squats each leg (ouch, ouch, ouch)
      • 8 single arm rows
  • Team AMRAP; single person descending hang
    • 2 push ups
    • 20 twist mountain climbers
    • 3 dive bombers
    • 30 flutter kicks
    • 4 body weight turkish get ups
    • 40 jumpking jacks

I had to leave 10 minutes early again, so I felt a little guilty missing out on the last few minutes of the AMRAP, but even the 10 minutes I did complete had me out of breath. And those split squats…I am going to feel that for a week. Ha!

I hope you have a wonderful day! <3
