Weekly Update 7/27/15 + Gambling

This week, I apparently had an obsession with doing 5 rounds of everything….


I really need/want to get back to yoga, but Mondays are so hard!  I came home and did some chores around the house.  I also worked on my 1000 piece puzzle….because I’m an old woman.


I felt pretty decent about Tuesday’s workout.  Michael’s willingness to stay longer at the gym has been helpful…then I’m not feeling guilty about him being done his workout and me still wanting to workout longer.

Warmup: foam roll and then 15 minutes on the elliptical

Workout: 200 meter row then 10 KB swings (repeat for a total of 5 times)



Wednesday night I was an old lady again and worked on my puzzle.


I worked remotely from home on Thursday, so it was super hard to get motivated to go to the gym.  Dragged my butt up there anyway.

Warm-up: 1 mile on the elliptical, row 500 meters

5 Rounds:

1. 10 TRX rows

2. 10 TRX pushups

3. 10 bodyweight squats

Cool down: row 500 meters



Friday night we left for Dover for a fun gambling weekend – my first time ever in a casino!  I wanted to try out the slot machines.  I won $21 on the second pull! We stayed up until about midnight playing Blackjack and Craps.  I won on Blackjack, but Michael lost some on craps.  Its a hard game to figure out!


On Saturday, we drove to Baltimore to go to a casino up there.  We lost some at Blackjack in the early afternoon.  Michael’s cousin came and joined us, and we started making money back at Blackjack.  We had a lot of fun getting to see her!


Really fantastic Caesar salad at the casino!


On Sunday, we headed home.  It took us quite awhile to get back, but we got to stop at the Continental diner again for lunch, so that was a huge plus!


Ham and cheese omelet and home fries 🙂

Have you ever been to a casino? What’s your game of choice?

  1. I’ve never been to a Casino but I kinda want to go to one! I think I would do the games of chance rather than skill because I have no poker face ;).

    It looks like you got some good workouts in! It is really hard to get out of the house sometimes when you work from home but sometimes I just want to get out sooo bad. I guess through phases I guess.

    • What I love about Blackjack is its super mathematical and there is no poker face needed! Unfortunately, while games of chance are fun and the payouts can be big…they normally aren’t!

      It is hard to get out of the house when you’ve been a slug all day. Its a good thing my husband drags me out.
