Thankful Tuesday

The 44 today is my least favorite move ever – jumping lunges!!!  And, because sometimes I feel the need to challenge myself, I held 12 pound dumbbells while I jumped – FUN TIMES!!!

I counted a right lunge and a left lunge as 1 rep so I really had to jump 88 times to complete my 44.  

Garage boot camp today was the 5-4-3-2-1 Workout.  I had to make a few modifications to this one since we were in the garage and driveway but it worked out fine and was a great workout!!!  Teaching boot camp has been nice because it is the only time I workout with a group anymore – I am really enjoying it!!!

Today I thought I would just share some of the things that I’m thankful for – sometimes I forget to stop and think about how very much I have to be grateful for.  I’m always glad that the amazing Jody @ Truth2BeingFit reminds us to start each Monday with gratitude!!!

Today I’m thankful that my family is all healthy!!!
