Today was a 10!!!

Tuesday. Today. Ten.

I had a blast today :) It all started out by getting up at 5:15 when I did my aerobics! I used my dumbbells, and boy I could feel a difference! Quite a bit different than my soup cans--tee hee!

SO a few observations about exercising in the morning:
I drank tons of water. I drank a total of 75 ounces before I even got to school!! A total of 200 ounces for the day!
My energy was amped up!!! And, it stayed that way ALL day--must be the afterburn everyone talks about.
I felt so much more positive and happy...thank you endorphins :)
I will be getting up at 5 a.m. every school day!!

School was fun! I love my students, so I am always excited when breaks are over. I also finished up a few projects at school, and started a couple others! Drama rehearsal ROCKED! We laughed so hard TODAY!!!!! Home was good, dinner was yummy and fun to make, and we cleaned an organized the kitchen together. I love our family dinners. We always have such interesting conversations. SO...gReAt day!!!!
