How Can I Make this Imperfect World a Little Better?

Today’s 44 was rough (mostly because my quads are still a little sore!!).  I used my barbell and did squats.


44 of these was a challenge!!  (and then I did even more during my workout!!)

Taylor (Lifting Revolution)  started a new challenge for February – Let’s Split Challenge.   This first week is 100 walking lunges every day!!!  My poor quads – but I know it is good for getting rid of that last bit of soreness!

And, I started a new program today!  Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation.  I actually won this from GiGi (GiGi Eats Celebrities) last week and it started today!!!  I had to do the Fitness test this morning and then the first day.  I chose the Lean and Strong program and all I can say after one day is – I don’t know how strong I feel!!!  My whole body is shaking right now!!!  

The only downside to the new program is that it is almost an hour a day/6 days a week and I’m going to have to figure out how to fit in the miles that I want to log running – maybe I need to get up at 4:30 again?!

Several family members shared stories and words about this incredible young man and the Priest said some things that really stuck out to me and I’ve been thinking a lot about them the past couple of days.

Happy Monday!!!
