Good morning! I hope you’ve all had a nice weekend so far. Ours has been relaxing and uneventful. Luna got her first bath yesterday and did well with it. As she grows bigger, though, she’ll start going to the groomer for a bath just like her big sister, Kali. The two of them are getting… Continue reading Week 1 of 9WCF complete!
Good morning! We had a wonderful day yesterday. We had a belated Father’s Day celebration with the kids. David scored some IPA and we had one last fun day with our blow-up pool, which has too many holes to repair. Sad face. The dogs enjoyed the pool as well! Today is another rest day for… Continue reading Review of Barre Blend
Good morning! Does anyone else’s dogs get them up at the crack of dawn? I feel like a mother of young children again. I can’t even remember the last time I got to sleep in. It’s no wonder that I’m ready to go to bed before 10:00, even on the weekends. Our routine here at… Continue reading What’s up? 9/14/19
Guys, I finished the 8-week LIIFT4 program this week! I went from using baby 2-lb weights to making it through “shred” weeks 7 and 8 without dying! Other than training for my running milestones, this is the first time I’ve gone through an entire workout program from start to finish and I can’t even tell… Continue reading LIIFT4 Program – COMPLETED!
Good morning! It’s late April, but that didn’t stop Mother Nature from sending us some cold, rainy (and snowy for some) weather yesterday. It’s still quite cold this morning, but it’s supposed to be sunny and 60 later today, so I may be able to get a good dose of Vitamin D yet this weekend.… Continue reading Week 1 of LIIFT4
Happy Easter to those who celebrate; otherwise, happy Sunday! Yesterday was a beautiful day weather-wise. It ended up being sunny and 70 degrees. My husband and I had to go run errands before we could enjoy the weather. First stop: Mellow Mushroom for some beer and lunch. This was a lager called Iowa Nice brewed… Continue reading New program
This morning I worked out. Most mornings, I have every intention of working out, but then I talk myself out of it. Most days, it’s not a big deal because then I’ll just work out in the evenings when I get home from work. Lately, however, I’m finding it hard to work out in the evenings,… Continue reading Morning workouts
Hey, everyone! Happy Monday! It was a great weekend! On Saturday, my husband and I went to the gym and had a great workout! I’m just so excited about the progress I’m making with my strength. I’m up to 115 pounds on the deadlift, and I can push 255 pounds on the prowler. I’m carrying… Continue reading Logging food – EYE OPENING
It’s almost the weekend! I’m planning on seeing La La Land with my daughters on Sunday, but otherwise, I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend of reading and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook are already aware of the wonderful news that we got regarding Kayla’s… Continue reading TGIF 1-20-17
I’ve been doing workouts at our local gym for four straight weeks and it’s been great! Although I haven’t noticed any significant changes in my body, I have been able to increase the weights that I’m using in my workouts and best of all, I’ve noticed an improvement in my running. I can run… Continue reading A month at the gym
