Weekly Recap #6

Standard

 

How you doing?!


They let us leave work early Friday, which made me happy since I had to drive to my parent’s house for Easter.

 

snuggled up with Tank since Phoebe was sitting with my dad.


 

sweet cousins

  
We did a doggie Easter egg hunt and it was so much fun. I helped Phoebe while my mom helped Tank. They each found four eggs but Tank definitely caught on the quickest.

  
I made a Carrot Cake Poke Cake for Easter and it was delicious!

   

The dogs aren’t allowed in my mom’s new chair…Phoebe says the rule doesn’t apply to her

I tried to find Merrick’s Easter Brunch in a can but Petco didn’t have it so I ended up getting Kiss Me I’m Irish Stew.

   
 

anxiously waiting

  

you can tell Phoebe is tired of pictures and ready to eat lol.


 

Mom why does he get to eat his first?!


I gave them each half a can because it was really too big to give them a whole can. Next time I will probably buy one can and split it between them.

  I had a little scare when I went to head back home and my car didn’t want to start. It took 3-4 times to start but after that it cranked fine. 

Hope everyone had a great Easter. 
 


 

Weekly Recap #5

Standard

Sunday morning I woke up with pink eye so that meant no work or work out for me Monday 😦 I spent the day on my couch reading and watching Netflix with Phoebe.

  
I made a recipe for a Korean Beef Bowl from Damn Delicious on Pinterest. I have never had Korean Beef so I don’t know what it supposed to taste like but this recipe was pretty good. I’m definitely going to try more of her recipes.

  
It has rained so much these past few weeks and I’m so tired of it! I didn’t go to my work out Thursday bc of the rain and we had more rain as well as thunder on Friday, which didn’t make Phoebe a happy camper!

Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake

This was so good!! I had previously made a similar Blueberry French Toast Casserole that was ok but wasn’t very sweet…well this has the sweetness I wanted.

I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh and squeezed a lemon in the butter instead of lemon zest.Recipe link is here.

 

 

 

Weekly Recap #2

Standard

February 23rd we were under a tornado watch so I got to leave work at lunch time. It didn’t take too long for the bad weather to start and then the sirens went off so Phoebe and I huddled in the bath tub.

Personal Record

Standard

As most of you know I signed up for a Bootcamp Class back in August and afterwards I signed up for an Athletic Training Class. My main goal was to lose weight obviously but lately I have been able to do things that I could never do, which makes me a lot happier then the number on my scale. I know I’m getting stronger, which pushes me to work even harder in order to meet my goal.

A month ago I decided to try a double leg V-up instead of the usual single leg ones that require more reps than the double so I could save time and complete the workout faster. My coach said something to the effect that she didn’t know I could do them and I responded that I didn’t know either until a few minutes ago ha.

3 weeks ago we had to do 6-8 burpees with a strict push up. I normally do assisted push ups but they were more time consuming and required extra movements so I decided to see if I could manage to do a military push up and I was shocked that I could.

After all this I guess my coach decided that I had been holding out on her ha so she has been pushing me to use a 26 lb kettle bell instead of my normal 18 lb kettle bell. I managed to do a portion of 1 round with the 26 lb and last week I was actually able to complete an entire work out with it. I know that it will take a little getting used to so I’m going to try to use the 26 lb as much as I can but have an 18 lb one on stand by just in case lol.
