Good morning and happy Monday/Columbus Day/Thanksgiving Day to my Canadian friends! Looks like there’s lots of happiness to go around today and I like it. Are you one of the lucky ones who gets an extra day off today? I can tell you that hubby is not one of ‘em…boooo.
Just catching up from the weekend? You may have missed some good stuff:
Congrats Josh & Erika! (<—super fun wedding!)
Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (<—delicious recipe!)
His Special Radar (<—am I overusing the !!’s yet?)
I think I’m feelin’ a little spunky this morning!
Today officially started Week 4 of the challenge…it’s coming down to the wire! Week 4 focuses on the lower body and all I can say is that this week just looks downright tough.
If you have experienced either of these lower body workouts (the xtreme or the original, 20 minute one) then you already know that they are intense; so when I saw that I had both of them to do this morning, back to back, I knew I was going to be given a run for my money. Let’s just say my legs already feel like mushy jello…and it’s only been an hour since I finished the workout.
What scares me even more is the fact that I’m supposed to do the same two workouts tomorrow. We’ll see if THAT happens!
A lot of you also made some really good points on last night’s post about rest days and I totally agree with you all on the importance of them. Looking at this coming week, I feel like I’d be completely exhausted, both physically and mentally, if I attempted everything with no rest, so I’m considering making a few changes to the plan to be able to incorporate one.
What would you do if this was what your workout looked like for this week? Keep it the same, or try to include some rest?
It was time to switch things up a bit this morning, so I rolled with the waffles.
Usually, I tend to buy the Van’s brand of waffles, but these were just as tasty. A little thinner, maybe, but the flavor was just as good. From now on, I’ll probably end up buying whichever ones are cheaper and/or I have a coupon for.
Coffee is also being consumed this morning, with a splash of my new favorite creamer. Yum!
I’ve got a lot I want to get done today, and am feeling pretty ambitious, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some productivity.
Question for the Morning:
Are you loyal to any particular brands, or do you like to buy whatever is on sale?
