Eli is a total pro at going to the dentist--when he was three, he had to have braces. Yes, like the kind you get as a teenager. He had a cross bite that made him unable to bring his molars together, and consequently, he would choke on his food a LOT because he couldn't chew it well. So the dentist put braces on for four months in order to correct his bite--and it worked perfectly! He was seriously the cutest kid EVER with those braces though...
So anyway, I looked like a weirdo walking into the dentist because I was walking so strangely--I was SUPER sore when I woke up today. I thought my calves were sore yesterday? Ha! Today I could just barely move around for the first half of the day.
I so badly wanted to put off the next Wii Active workout, but I'm determined to finish this 30-day challenge, so I waited until evening. Thankfully, the workout didn't include the inline skating, because I don't think I could have done that. Instead, I had to do at least 30,000 lunges--I hate lunges! The side lunges aren't TOO bad, but I really despise the forward/backward lunges. I was seriously cursing at the TV. But I finished workout 2 of 20.
Of course this is the day before my long run, so I can only hope my legs aren't feeling like Jello tomorrow morning! I totally underestimated how well the Wii Active actually works my body. I wore my Garmin heart rate monitor during the workout today to see how accurate the calorie burn was...
I got a package from Amazon today. I love getting packages, because it feels like Christmas--even though I already knew what it was, since I ordered it ;) I have this habit of putting things in my Amazon cart and leaving them there for a really long time until I either remove them or buy them. It's actually a good thing, because then I don't make very impulsive purchases. I had two items in my cart for the longest time: a Teavana Perfectea Maker and the book Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald.
Then last week, I made a totally impulsive purchase, and while I was at it, I finally ordered the tea maker and book as well. My totally impulsive purchase? A 96-count package of single-serve Nutella! hahaha
Also in the package were my Teavana Perfectea Maker and book:
Noah comes home from my sister's house tomorrow. I'm actually really surprised how fast the week without him went by! It sounds like he had a totally miserable time on his little vacation... ;)
