Lots Happening on Saturday

It is currently 4:30pm as I sit down to type this and I still have yet to get myself into the shower today. A sign of laziness?

Nope…not today! In fact, we’ve been pretty busy around these parts.

The main project happening in the Horan household on this lovely December 1st is replacing all of the doors in our hallway. We’ve currently got 3 completed, a fourth on its way, and the fifth one will probably happen tomorrow. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…thank goodness I have a handy hubby.


Since there wasn’t a whole lot that I could do with the doors, I took care of a few other things around the house, including laundry AND…wrapping my first Christmas presents.


I still can’t believe it. December 1st and I actually have presents in my possession AND wrapped. It’s crazy.


When it comes to meals on the weekends, I usually end up grazing all the way from breakfast to dinner, but today involved an actual sit-down meal.


I finally finished up the last of my turkey and veggie soup (with a few mini saltines thrown in there) and had a toasted whole wheat English muffin on the side with some Smart Balance butter and canola spread.


Shortly before sitting down for lunch, I actually completed my first day of reps for the 2012 Closeout Workout Challenge:

2 sets of the following:

  • 15 squats
  • 15 pushups
  • 20 lunges (10/leg)
  • 15 chair dips
  • 15 plié squats

160 reps total for today…1852 reps to go. Winking smile

Once the main hallway doors were done today, we got to work on painting…


And, surprisingly enough, we’re almost done with that too! We are movin’ right along today.

As far as the Codester foes today, he’s spent most of the day either wandering around in the hallway, wondering what the heck is going on…or he’s been parked under the tree.


He does love his special spot under that tree. Smile


Now I’m thinking I better finally take that shower soon so I’ll be ready to go to our Christmas party we have tonight. I can’t lie…I’m already thinking about the cake that’s going to be there tonight. I look forward to it eeeeeevery year.

Happy weekend, friends. Have a great night! Smile

    Cody is so cute! My friends cat actually climbed UP in her tree and hung out for awhile and nobody could find her! haha!
    Way to go on the home stuff! We just got done painting our cupboards and replacing our floor with hardwood. Took forever and now I’m taking a break before tackling some repainting.. I’m so not a fan of the process of remodeling! haha!
    have a good weekend!

    I love productive days! Good for you guys! We made a good dent in our Christmas shopping this morning and now we’re getting ready to finish up our Christmas decorations. It feels so good to finally be getting it all done since last weekend was so busy. I love little Codster under the tree! Too cute!

    Look at you guys! I don’t think I could ever assist, help, or put on doors in my life. I’ve been checking things off of my to-do list all day, and only have a couple more things to get to. Enjoy the party tonight, and make sure to get some pretty pictures of that cake!

    Yaaaay! My husband & I had a Home Depot date last night and in the past two days he’s painted the living room and hallway & we laid new flooring in our living room & hall. It feels awesome to see all these projects getting done before the holidays, doesn’t it!?

    Can we count reps from body pump as part of the challenge? I do it about once a week and was just going to count the lunge and squat reps…ps that picture of Cody under the tree is so cute!

      Yeah, I think that would be okay as long as they’re the same exercises that you’ve decided to keep track of counting :)
