Post of Randomness

Yesterday my normal morning workout did not happen. Eli woke up at 5:30 to eat and did not want to go back to sleep after.  Normally I would be able to sit him on the floor with some toys or something and he'd be content but yesterday he was really fussy so I texted my Aunt and told her we were going to have to try for later.

I spent the day doing laundry, going through the kids clothes that didn't fit and organizing everybody's drawers. I saw this pin a while back
(Her drawers not mine)

And decided to try it for ours. I really wish I had gotten a before and after pic of ours because it made a huge difference. Becca is really bad about looking for a certain shirt and pulling everything out of her drawer to find it. Now when she opens her drawer she can see every shirt she owns. This is one of those things that you think "Why didn't I think of that?"

I went to Sports Authority to pick up my race packet for the Color Run. I am so excited about this race!

After I got the kids in the bed I decided to do Day 4 of the Shred. Only 4 days and I am so sick of doing the same thing. I'm thinking about Monday starting level 2 because Level 1 is feeling too easy in most of it. I will admit there are a few things that I'm not able to do the full 30 seconds without a break but it's not enough for me to want to continue with Level 1. I really want a challenge and to see results fast.
Even with it feeling easy I'm still getting a good workout
My view after finishing Day 4

After I finished Day 4 I decided to jump on the 'mil for a bit. I set my timer for 10 minutes and covered everything on the screen but the arrows to control the speed. I set the speed a little bit faster than what felt comfortable and was just going to run until the timer went off. I had to bump the speed down a few times but I don't know what I had it set on. The last few minutes all I wanted to do was stop but I wouldn't let myself and waited for the 10 minutes to be up.

.87 in 10:00
Not as fast as I felt like I was going. But it was still faster than my normal pace. I walked the rest of the mile for my cool down.

I just finished Day 5 of the Shred and found it to be much more enjoyable like this...

Sorry Jillian :)

I can't wait to update about the Color Run! Have great weekend everyone!
