Sunday + Monday Highs and Lows

Good morning!

I hope the beginning of the week has treated you right! Ours' has been a little all over the place with some great moments but a few not so fun ones as well.

Let's start with the highs:

- Family dress up time. Dan brought us all home some fun Indian garb, which he insisted we all wear to church. The dresses were beautiful and the girls loved all the extra attention they received. I felt a little silly once I had dropped them off in their rooms, but everyone was very nice about my change in fashion.

- Dan's mom joined us at church! It was a show stopper service. (I blamed the tears on the pregnancy hormones. I don't know what Dan's excuse was.) Listen to the sermon here. We were so thankful she was there.

- Dying Easter eggs. Cora ended up napping through this, which was probably a good thing.

- An awesome, awesome small group discussion and fellowship afterwards with lasagna.

- I returned to the gym Monday morning! I felt so good during the workout, and took it pretty easy on myself, but still managed to accelerate my heart rate and work up a sweat all while having fun. Here was Monday's Fitness Tiger KC workout:
  • 30 rep complex with 12 lb dumbbells (this was pretty light for me, but I was still feeling it!)
    • 1 clean
    • 2 squat press
    • 1 push press
  • Sprints
  • 10 minutes AMRAP:
    • 250 m row
    • flutter kicks (I planked)
    • Ball slams (20 lb)
  • 10 minutes AMRAP:
    • 10 cal bike
    • leg over ball (I planked or tried to catch my breath and not die)
    • jumping jacks (these felt really weird, so I can't say that I did too many in a row)
And then for a few lows:

-During small group while the kids were playing outside Ina somehow found a board that had fallen off (or was pulled off....) the swing set with nails sticking out of it and was carrying it around and then fell on it. A nail punctured her upper arm, but after some soap, Neosporin (from another mom in small group because I couldn't find ours'), a cookie, and a call to her doctor's office to make sure she is up to date on her tetanus, we were all good. 

-While Dan was bandaging Ina up, his mom called to let us know she had fallen and broken her foot! Talk about overwhelming. My house was full of people, my daughter was bleeding and screaming, I couldn't find the Neosporin, and I felt a huge need to jump in the car and take Dan's mom to the ER. Thankfully, all of small group worked better under pressure than me and the stressful situation soon dissipated. Dan's mom seems to be doing pretty well, considering. She has stayed with us since then so we can help with a few things and she can be closer to the doctor.

- The Royals lost Sunday's game in extra innings and Monday's home opener. I know, not a big deal big picture-wise, but still kind of sad.

Today I am resting my sore legs from the gym, but plan to return tomorrow. I might try to get outside for a walk.

I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday. <3
