Real Life vs Vacation Life

I’m being featured over at Jennifer’s blog Wine to Weightlifting today!!!  She has a really great blog and does Friday spotlights – check it out if you get a chance!! 

Today for my 43 I did squats with my barbell (20 pounds).  Instead of just doing a standard squat, I stayed in the squat position the entire time – 


From the squat position, I alternated lifting my right leg and holding it up –

right leg up
right leg up

I put my right leg down (staying in a squat position still) and lifted my left leg and held it:

left leg up
left leg up

I counted a right leg up and left leg up as one rep – my quads were burning (and I was breathing HARD) by the time I finished all 43.  

And, today I did something I rarely do – I repeated yesterday’s workout.  I’m trying to get in all 3 rounds of Taylor’s  weekly challenge after a late start this week.  It was HARD today because I’m so sore from yesterday.  Pretty sure the combat push-ups are what did it, or maybe the million burpees, or……

Anyway, even being sore, I was able to get more reps in all 3 circuits today.  I hope I can increase again when I do the 3rd round tomorrow!

Yesterday was our first day home in almost 2 weeks and it was non-stop!!!  Chris had to work – big drill weekend to get ready for.

Jordan started band camp yesterday and will have that every day from now until school starts (August 13).

We went shopping for Hunter’s school supplies – thankfully we only had to go to Target for everything!!

New shoes for both boys (and I might have gotten another pair of tennis shoes, too!!!).

Orthodontist appointment for Hunter.

Pretty sure that I could do with another vacation!!!  

I miss my "office" view!!

I guess there is nothing like a day of reality to make you appreciate the peace of vacation even more!!!

Happy Fun Friday!!!
