Take Time


Last night, I made sure to hold my kids close and tell them that I love them. We spent the afternoon lounging on the couch, watching The Polar Express and drinking hot chocolate. Then, we went out for frozen yogurt with my family and walked around the stores a bit. Then, we came home and had a family reading night in our bed. I realized how truly blessed I was to be able to tuck them into bed last night.

I think that we all realize how important our loved ones and how we should take time to appreciate them. Take time today to give your kids, your family, your spouses, or your loved ones a hug and a kiss. Tell them that you love them.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families in Newtown, CT. There are no words for this terrible tragedy. I can’t even imagine what these families are going through, and my heart aches for them.

Today’s Workout

  • 3.05 miles – treadmill

This morning is cold and rainy, and I suppose that’s fitting with the mood of the day. I went to the gym about 8 am, and wanted to be in and out, so I did another HIIT┬átreadmill workout. I alternated between walking at 4.0 mph and running at 7.0 mph. I did each interval for a minute each for a total of about 30 minutes, and finished with a cool down.

After the gym, I stopped at McDonald’s for coffee and got cinnamon melts for my kids, which I let Jaden eat on the couch.

This evening, we’re taking the kids to the Chicago Bulls game. They have never been before and we’ll see how they like it. Have a┬ánice weekend.
