I can see the light!

Well, it’s that time of year again.  Only two more Mondays until SUMMER BREAK!

This post is going to be short and sweet because I am wiped out.  Lately, I’ve been trying to be more creative with my pictures on the blog (did you notice the custom background?  Yeah, it only took me like an hour to make something so simple).  I’ve been using picmonkey for pretty much everything, but last night I also decided to use Photovisi in combination with picmonkey.  This was the outcome:

I know that most of you are thinking this is no big deal, but for me, this was a huge accomplishment!  I really loved the finished product!  I was showing it to Daniel and exclaiming, “Look!  I could make our Christmas cards!  You know, if we actually sent Christmas cards.  Well, we did send them that one time, and then I bought more cards the next year and never sent them.  But if we DID send cards, I could make them!”  He wasn’t nearly as excited as I was, but he was impressed by my amazing, advanced technological skills.

I hope that y’all have a great Tuesday!  Much love!

Back to Training

Because of my crazy schedule last week, I was unable to workout with Martha.  However, this morning it was back to our training schedule, and I am so thankful!  Here’s what today looked like:

Circuit One (two times)

  • squat curl and press with 12lb db’s – 15
  • wide pushups – 20
  • lunge fwd/back with pass 8lb db(as seen on a JM workout, not sure which one) – 15 each leg
  • figure 8 with 8lb db – 15
  • low plank – 1:15

Circuit Two (two times)

  • burpees – 15
  • lat raise with pour with 5lb db’s- 15
  • reverse flies 8lb db’s – 15
  • wide-to-narrow jump squats with 10lb db – 15 (thank you Megan)
  • butterfly crunches – 30

Circuit Three (two times)

  • wheel lunges – 10 each leg
  • plank pushups – 10 leading with each arm
  • pilates 100
  • side v-crunches – 20 each side
  • twist crunch with elevated feet (mason twists) – 30
  • side plank pushups – 15 each side

It was a great workout to get back into our routine.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

What is your workout today???

Above workout, teaching hip hop cardio dance at 4:30, teaching Zumba (it’s blacklight night –  YAY!) at 7:15.

Have a GREAT Monday!

What is it about Mondays?

Gooooood morning!  It’s MONDAY!!!

Harley, my chocolate lab…this just looks like a Monday face!

Somehow, it seems that most of us have a love/hate relationship with Mondays.  I know that I always hate the feeling of my weekend coming to an end and also that the next weekend is FOREVER away (yes, on Sunday nights, Friday seriously seems like forever away, and you know it!).  However, I typically am looking forward to the new opportunities that will come with the new week.  Monday is always my longest day during the summer – here’s the plan for today:

Personal training                                                   8:15-9:15

Insanity Max Cardio Conditioning                         10:30-11:20

Cheer Practice                                                       1:00-3:00

Teach Cardio Dance/Hip Hop                                 4:30-5:15

Teach Zumba                                                         7:15-8:15

I love all of it, but add in cooking, eating, setting up, cleaning up, and driving, it just doesn’t leave much time for rest.  BUT that’s okay, because Tuesday is much more relaxed!  Hopefully there will be some pool time tomorrow!  Oh, and bonus about the crazy Monday schedule – extra fuel will be consumed so I can power through those workouts!  🙂

Until then, let’s make the most of this Monday!

What are YOUR plans for today?  What is your busiest day of the week?
