Happy Tuesday. Or as I like to call it, Biggest Loser night!
That show is totally my guilty pleasure, although sometimes it drags on and on for those 2 hours. And tonight’s challenge was my favorite of the whole season. The contestants have to drag a bag full of weights that represent what they have lost throughout the season. Being able to see and feel what they used to carry around on their bodies is a real eye opener, and helps put things in perspective. I sometimes find myself picking up a weight at the gym and imagine what I felt like when that weight was part of me. Or pick up a bag of dog food at the store and carry it around a few aisles. 50 lbs is really pretty heavy, in case you didn’t know. I recently carried a 30 lb cat litter up the stairs and was shocked at how difficult it was. Perspective. It’s a wonderful thing.
So on to to day’s recap. Work was pretty good. We have our spring concert coming up so I’m in performance mode. The kids, not so much. I think they are more concerned with the many activities that accompany the last days of school, as well as the upcoming summer vacation. Trust me, I’m excited too. But I won’t celebrate too much until the concert is over Thursday night.
Rehearsal today went well and I am confident in the kids abilities to perform well. Whew!
I hit up Target on the way home looking for some cute summer sandals, but was disappointed. They had either flat non-supportive strappy sandals or high heels. No luck. I did pick up a few graduation cards (boyfriend and sister!).
The training calendar said 3 miles today so that’s what I did! Here’s the Nike+
