Literally, the first time I’ve done muscle-ups in the last 6-7 months. Was terrified I wouldn’t even be able to do them at all, and ended up surprising myself, moving better than I thought I would, and feeling no pain in my lat. SO PUMMMMMPED.

When you tell this kid to get herself dressed and ready for playgroup. READY.

Now, everything with me is done in excess.  You know that if you read this blog.

So, I as soon as I finished my 1st session, I immediately texted Maya, Jonah, Kat, and Ben and asked them all to download the app, commit to doing this every morning, and that we were going to review our experience over family dinner tonight (we will Facetime Kat in since she’s in Iceland for the rest of the month).

I also found a series of meditations for kids as young as Harley Love’s age on the same app, so I signed up for a monthly subscription so we could access that, too.

When the kids woke up, the three of us laid down in the living room and woke up our toes, feet, legs, fingers, arms, heads, mouths, noses, and eyes together with our leader, Andy, walking us through the whole 5 minute process.

My family can’t stand me.

But, at least they’ll be present and connected with their physical body while they deliver the hate on me.
