A Weird Week of Readjusting

It’s been a strange week around here for me. My family and I have been trying to readjust our schedules to le hubs new work schedule as well as trying to adjust ourselves to preteen emotions. I’m not entirely sure I will actually ever fully adjust to said preteen moodiness, I shudder at the thought of full blown teen moodiness.

Work wise I’ve felt pretty unproductive this week, of course that also probably has a lot to do with my Type A personality. I’m actually working in the background on revamping the site and it’s a very large undertaking considering the amount of things I have to weed through.

Yesterday I had to take an impromptu rest day because my knee was killing me. It feels slightly better today so I did some very light cardio for a few mins and a little stint of yoga. Everything around my left knee is twisted so damn tight this week that it’s killing me. Although I’ll

Those workouts when you have to pep talk yourself to keep going, those are the workouts that make all the difference. | fridaylovesong.net #fitfluential #fitness #fitness #dedication
