Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely holiday weekend. Ours was jam packed. I’ll start with the good. On Friday evening, we had our old neighbors over to our new home for dinner. Leaving them behind was the absolute worst part about moving, so it was nice to see them again, and catch up a bit! Also good: a lazy July 4th. There was grilling, there was swimming, there was ice cream, and there were fireworks with friends. I wish that everyone could have heard my youngest marveling at the fireworks! She was in utter amazement as the sky lit up, as we have never let her stay up to watch them before. It was pretty awesome.
And the last good: I power washed and stained our whole deck all by myself. My husband had his own to do list for the weekend, but the dirt and mildew all over our deck was driving me crazy (I also can’t deal with long grass, and cut it about every four days) so I watched some YouTube videos and went to work. It was not easy, and took way longer than I had anticipated, but it looks amazing (if I do say so myself).
And now the bad. My husband’s car finally died (the engine was no good, and it’s old enough that it’s not worth saving) but we tried to tow if back to our home by ourselves and got pulled over by a cop. So here’s today’s lesson: you are not permitted to tow another car yourself – tow trucks are required! Who knew?!
And more bad: our girls were up until almost 11:00 last night to enjoy the fireworks and boy did we pay for that today! It was one of those “bed time can’t come fast enough” days! And finally my last bad, I indulged a little too much with the yummy grilled meats and frozen treats. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about balance. There is definitely a time and a place to indulge, and this weekend was a great chance to do so. I don’t regret my ice cream! But I am also glad that The Fresh Fix is happening next week. I am ready for those healthy smoothies!
Okay, here’s a quick recap of last week’s workouts:
M – 60 minutes strength training
T – Off
W – 60 minutes zumba type workout (I’ll never say no to trying a new workout, but this was not my thing) + 4 mile run
Th – 60 minutes kickboxing
F – 5 mile run (8:00 avg.)
S – 60 minutes strength training + 60 minutes kickboxing
Su – Off
My older daughter is going to camp at our church this week. I’m hoping this break is good for my girls: they play so well together but they also fight so well together! Enjoy your week, all!
