Today’s 44 was a lunge but because I held a dumbbell overhead (15 pounds) I also got some nice core work.
I counted a right and left as 1 rep so it was a total of 88 lunges while holding the 15 pounds overhead!!!
I did The Biggest Loser 8 Minute DVD – this is actually an hour because there are 7 total sections. I like the format – each section is 8 minutes and you do 11 different moves for 30ish seconds followed by a 10 second rest. Plenty of strength work but you will also get your heart rate up!
I’m planning to go outside for a run later today – it is supposed to get into the mid-70s!!! Can’t wait!!!!
Curtains, blinds, shades – whatever window coverings you have – do you open them every day or keep them closed?
With the time change it is still dark outside right now but I have already opened up the house for the day. I love to have natural light and by the time I get back from taking the boys to school it will be light!!!
Lately, driving around, I’ve noticed that lots of people keep their house closed up during the day – every single window is covered.
If our blinds were down, I would miss scenes like this gorgeous sunset from the other night when it was too cold to be outside.
And, much as I’m not a fan of the snow and gray days, I still want to be able to see outside when I’m hibernating!!!
So, are you an open or closed kind of person???
BTW – Hunter got 2nd in his competition yesterday!!! (and it wasn’t just 7th grade – it was all middle school) His first cash prize!!!
