Awesome fast workout and pics!

Hello!  I have a minute, so I’ll write.  I never know where my extra minutes will be!  I had a great workout this morning so I thought I’d share.  I’m a huge fan of mixing things up!!  I could never do the same workout day in day out.  Yes!  I have my favorites, but I love to try and learn new things such as SKIING!  This morning the mountain was so beautiful I felt as if it was a gift from heaven.  The instructor said something about it being a “precious place”.  That couldn’t be more true!  Anyway, back to my workout.  I’ve been liking a 6:00 a.m. boot class lately with one of my favorite instructors!  I think everyone has been reading my mind lately because she mentioned the need to get rid of the mom butt.  I’ve been focusing on that in my workouts lately AND my new Oxygen magazine had my favorite Jamie Eason sampling several butt exercises.  Yay!  This is a simple and short workout.  You could add more!  We loaded up a heavy barbell.  Heavy so it was hard and made you breathe deeper.  Most people don’t lift heavy enough, me included!  We did 5 rounds at 3 minutes each.  We rested 1 minute between rounds.  During the 3 minutes we did 3 deadlifts, 6 push ups, and 9 jumps over the barbell and we repeated that until the 3 minutes were up!  I’ll try to find pictures.  Just a minute…

Another new adventure I’m going to try this weekend is to teach my favorite HIGH FITNESS class.  All the regular instructors are out so they get ME and one of my BFF’s too.  She’s taught it a few times before so we’re going to go over and over it till I get it perfect.  This is good for my brain (:

Lastly, a few photos!  First one is me and my comfiest outfit.  Top and bottom are Lululemon.  I love the tops because they stick to you and are long.

photo 2Well!!  I’m super excited for this weekend.  Our kids have two days off school!  I’m doing my favorite workouts for the next 2 days, playing with friends, skiing, being with family, and more.  Have a wonderful winter day!!  I love all these words!  I’m grateful for nice people!  Be kind.


Stick to a plan this summer

fed5e226d618cedaf30f6a1e40a692a6I need a pretty place right now!  This is beautiful!!  I’m lucky however because I live in a beautiful place too.  I told my family yesterday that it could be June every month of the year and I would never get sick of it!!  I love everything about summer!!!  Today marks the official 1st day of summer for my kids.  We’ve got a plan for each one of them!!  My 2 oldest boys play football.  I’m going to take them to the track 3 times a week and whip them into shape!!  My little 10 yr. old was with me this morning and I almost had him in tears!!  Not on purpose, I was being very kind (:  They’ll love it!!  Anyhow, we have the typical job chart along with reading and piano etc.  My oldest son wants to play guitar now too!  Always something new.  Today I ran a pitiful run and then went to the gym to do the WOD.   This was a great workout!  I’m going to post it here to see if my brain can recall it!!
