Thank you for all the helpful comments and Facebook posts about workouts at home. I have so many ideas I can't wait to try them out. I actually did a suggested at home workout yesterday thanks to Christina! It was a "get off the couch workout" from Gourmet Runner and I made a little picture so I can remember to do it again...
I took Ernie on a 15 minute jog/power walk before doing this workout and was in a full sweat by the first round of squats. Ernie and I did a 10 minute walk to cool down after I finished and I feel like I got a great workout in! One thing to note, I don't workout my chest so I did tricep pushups instead of regular ones. I will post more when I try them! Lots of people suggested ToneItUp.com and Insanity so I am going to look into those.
Ernie was so weirded out when I was doing jumping jacks...
Last night I had the pleasure of going on a blate (blog date) with the beautiful and sweet Jenni from Story of My Life. Seriously, if you don't read her blog, stop reading mine and GO NOW!! We both laughed when we saw each other and said "you're short too!" We had such an amazing time catching up and even though it was the first time we'd met face to face, I felt as if we were old friends. We kept using the disclaimer "I am an oversharer!". It was such a fabulous night and I can't wait for lots more blates with Mrs. Jenni (and hopefully man dates with our hubbies!).
Our Salvadorian food (our waiter was sure to tell us it was NOT Mexican food)
Total bloggers with our Canons at the table
Do you have hair Jenni-envy yet?
I also wrapped Jon's anniversary present last night...I am getting giddy thinking about giving it to him in 3 days!!!!!
Jon has been gone all week for work and gets home tonight!! I've been super busy this week so it's flown by but I am excited. I felt like a wild child last night because I ended up going downtown with some co-workers to watch the band that 3 of our co-workers are in. I'd known about it for awhile but decided not to go when I found out Jon would be gone. Call me silly but I like having my hubby with me when I go out late at night. But after my awesome blog-date, I was in such a fun/happy mood and decided to go! It was really neat to see people I work with up on stage performing, they were so good and talented!
Today I am pretty sore (120 squats!) and tired but yesterday was perfect and so worth it!
