Today’s 43 was a wide bicep curl with one of my bands (the perfect travel tool!!).
I stood with my feet fairly wide apart so that I could add tension to the band.
(never mind the bed in the background – joy of a hotel room!) By the time I finished 43 of these, my arms were shaking!!!
I’m using this week as a bit of recovery from the past few weeks of 2-3 workouts a day! Today I did one of my old favorites (a perfect workout for a hotel room!!) – Turbo Fire – Fire 45. It was nice to be reunited with Chalean!!!
Kansas to Abilene, TX – 8.5 hours in the car – GOOD TIMES!!!!
The boys took a few (like 500) pictures during our drive – don’t worry, I’m not going to include all of them!
Jordan feels the need to try and freeze me out in the car – I had my temp set at 72 (because I was in the sun and it was 95 outside) and he had his side at Low (60) – and then he uses a blanket – nice!!!
Hunter probably took 200 pictures (or more) of Jordan during the day – I guess he wanted to make sure and document any changes during the day!!Near Lawton, OK there are a few miles where it looks like there is a mountain (ok – hill) range nearby.
Hunter did take a few pictures that weren’t Jordan – not sure exactly what all he was trying to get but….After about 6 hours of driving, we made it to God’s Country!!!When the boys weren’t entertaining themselves and each other with their picture taking skills, they were pretend sleeping. I guess trips with teen-agers involve more sleeping than trips with small children. I had to find ways to keep myself busy – music and self-portraits!Finally, 8.5 hours after we left home we made it to Abilene!
The boys enjoyed a couple hours of swimming while I unloaded the car, enjoyed a nice happy hour drink and relaxed a little!!
Today will include more swimming for the boys and time with my 98 year-old Poppa!!!
