Some days you just feel like you’ve got your shit together and this is one of those days.  My husband and I got the house ship shape last night before bed and got all the laundry done as well.  Jude and I went to free play at Gymboree this morning and he showed so much physical and verbal progress.  It was encouraging to see as a mama.  I was able to get a full work out in during nap time and this time I incorporated 3 pound weights into the routine and I was able to keep up and use them the whole time.  My body is getting stronger and I know healing is happening.  I am starting to wake up and feel almost normal without caffeine some mornings as well, even if I still like to have my tea.

Exercise – 30 minutes of Crunch: Burn and Firm Pilates with 3 lb. weights.

Mind/Body – Got a super hot and steamy Epsom salt bath with lavender essential oils while I finished my trashy chic novel.  I then checked out a few catalogues that I had been meaning to peruse.
