Weekly Update – 10/5/15

This was a pretty decent week, nothing too crazy out of the ordinary.  Its been nice to have some relaxing weekends lately, cause work has been a bit stressful.

Monday

Body Flow with Jamie.  I think this is the last week until Jaye comes back and we start doing yoga again.  I’m kind of getting used to Body Flow, its not too bad!

Tuesday

Warmup: Foam Roll

Conditioning: 10 minutes on elliptical

Three Rounds:

  1. 500 Meter Row
  2. 10 KB Goblet Squats (20 lbs)

Wednesday

Stretch and Strengthen class.  I am starting to enjoy this class as well, and its the last week before Jaye returns.  This class was a little more relaxed than normal – I actually wanted to do more core work this class and she didn’t do any.

Thursday

It was such a nice day on Thursday, I couldn’t bring myself to go to the gym.  Michael and I went for a walk around the neighborhood instead.  It was just over 1.5 miles, but it was really nice just to enjoy the cooler weather.

Friday

Just a chill night.  Michael and I just stayed in and watched a movie.

Saturday

On Saturday, Michael was a trooper.  I got up and mowed the lawn and cleaned up the flowerbeds, while he went to get a haircut.  As I write that sentence, it seems very backward. Shouldn’t I be the one getting a haircut and him doing the lawn? 🙂  Then he came back, we both got ourselves showered and ready for the day, then we headed off to get some errands done.  We took stuff to donate (and get it OUT of the house).  Then we went to Bed Bath and Beyond and finished off our registry.  After that, we made a dreaded Walmart trip to get some essentials. It was a busy day!

Sunday

On Sunday, we went to church, lunch, then made a visit to the other side of the city to look a builder’s model home.  We are hoping and dreaming for a future home and we wanted to check out their work.  They are just starting to clear land for a development right down the street from us, so we are getting excited!

How was your week? Who does the mowing in your household?

Weekly Update – 9/28/15

I was looking forward to the Crawlin Crab 5k, but unfortunately it was cancelled due to the weather.  It was a great week to catch up from life and de-stress.

Monday

Body Flow night! I’m actually starting to like this class a lot.  I like doing different sections to music.  Although the ab track is NOT my favorite.  I can’t believe I ever used to take a 30 min abs class.  Maybe I need to get back to that….

Tuesday

Everything on Tuesday worked against me getting to the gym.  I ended up skipping.

Wednesday

The stretch and strengthen class is starting to grow on me, but I had to go to worship team practice.  My church is celebrating 9 years on Sunday – so we wanted to make sure to get a little extra practice time in.

Thursday

Warm up: Foam Roll

Heart Rate Training: Elliptical for 1/2 mile, keeping heart rate under 150

5 Rounds:

  1. 1 minute on the ReACT trainer
  2. 10 KB high pulls
  3. 5 KB swings

On Thursday, I found out that the Crawlin Crab race weekend had been postponed by 2 weeks due to the nor’easter we’d been having, as well as the impending doom of Hurricane Joaquin!

Friday

On Friday night, we went to get some Mexican food with Michael’s brother, and just had a relaxing evening.

Saturday

Crawlin Crab was cancelled, so I took advantage of it and slept in like a champ!  We got some laundry and other chores done, but mostly we just hung around the house watching movies and being lazy!

Sunday

Sunday was our 9 year celebration of our church’s existence.  It was a great service and wonderful celebration.  We came home, did more chores, got the grocery shopping done for the week, and watched our Eagles lose. I also lost in fantasy football 😦  We also had a little adventure with the stove….Michael was cooking and burnt all our vegetables into the pan.  We think the one burner heats up a lot more than the others for some reason.  While I know there are things you can do to try to clean it…yeahhhh we are a bit lazy. It was so bad we had to throw the pot out – there was no saving it.

There was no saving this pot. RIP.

Have you ever ruined a pot? Did the rain ruin your weekend plans?

Weekly Update – 9/21/15

I’m doing a much better job at consistently getting to the gym.  I think it helps a lot with my stress levels, and gives me a good outlet.  This week was a little different due to having Jaye gone and having subs for all her classes.

Monday

Since Jaye is gone for about a month, I have to get used to Monday night not being a true yoga night.  Looks like on Monday’s we will be doing Les Mills Body Flow.  I’ve done this class before.  It combines yoga, Tai Chi, and pilates. Its not terrible.  I also like that its only 55 minutes as opposed to the 75 minute yoga class.  Frees up a little more of my evening! Class was good, but it’ll take a little getting used to.

Tuesday

I ate a snack before the gym that did not sit right with me.  I had the worst heartburn. As a result, I didn’t push it too hard.

Warm up: Foam Roll and 1/2 mile on the elliptical

5 Rounds:

  1. 1 minute on the ReACT trainer
  2. 10 TRX rows

Cool down: walking lunges and walking single leg RDLs

Funny thing seen at the gym….watching someone do wall balls and break the wall!

Also….a girl did that! 🙂

Wednesday

So now that I was expecting Wednesday night not to be Vinyasa flow, but instead was going to be this Stretch and Strengthen class, I was more ok with it.  Still not sure if I like the class, but its better than nothing!

Thursday

Warm up: Foam Roll

Two Rounds:

  1. Walking RDLs with 10 lb DBs
  2. Walking Lunges with 10 lb DBs

5 Rounds:

  1. 200 Meter Row
  2. 10 body weight squats

Friday

On Friday night, Michael and I went to the movies with my mom and stepdad to see The Intern.  I love Anne Hathaway and have really begun to love DeNiro in comedies.  It was a great movie.

Saturday

On Saturday I got to sleep in!  After awhile, we went to a local community to meet with a builder to learn about their building process and the base prices of their homes.  We like the builder and the area, but we aren’t sure about the school system.  Its also much father away from the interstate, and that’s a convenience factor we aren’t sure we are ready to compromise on.  Afterward, we went to his parents house for a late lunch and spent some good time with that.  We had a pretty lazy night at home.

Sunday

On Sunday, we went to church, then headed home for an absolutely lazy day. It was delightful and just what the doctor ordered.  We watched some football and my Eagles finally won!
