Good afternoon! How have you all been?! I have been busy with life and work and kids and all that good stuff.
Last week Jacob turned 15!
Celebrating with a cinnamon roll for breakfast.
It still boggles my mind that he’s 15 years old and will be gtting his learner’s permit later this year. It seems like only yesterday he was born 15 weeks early, weighing in at only 1 pound and 14 ounces. Now he’s almost done with his first year of high school. It’s amazing how fast the time goes.
We also celebrated Mother’s Day on Saturday with my mom, brother, sister-in-law, and niece. Sunday was the first Mother’s Day that I was able to sleep late for the first time in about five years (and by late, I mean about 7:30 am). I usually run the Run Like a Mother 5k with my family but unfortunately the race wasn’t held this year. Hopefully it’ll be back this year!
Jaden picked me some beautiful flowers for Mother’s Day.
On Mother’s Day morning, I had Dunkin Donuts coffee and a delicious jelly dount for breakfast and then Danny and I went to the gym.
We worked legs and Danny pressed 650 pounds on the leg press machine. Impressive.
After the gym, we had lunch, and then took the kids and Baylee to a local outdoor trail to walk and enjoy the weather.
The trail recently added some exercise machines along the way. Jaden and I stopped to do some box jumps.
I love that they have a little drinking fountain for dogs but Baylee was a little scared of it and we had to pour water in Danny’s hands for her to drink instead. Princess.
In the evening, we went out to dinner and I had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
I’ve been trying to walk and run with Baylee more but the weather around here is always so unpredicatble.
One day it’ll be warm and sunny and the next day it’ll be cold and rainy.
This morning, I went to the gym and did a quick chest and triceps workout followed by a HIIT workout.
The exercises I did included:
- stability ball chest press
- stability ball chest flies
- medicine ball push-ups
- tricep dips
- overhead tricep extensions
The HIIT workout included:
- running laps
- box jumps
- kettlebell swings
After the gym, I stopped at Target and found three new products.
The Fage Crossover yogurts are delicious! This is the only one that I’ve tried but it is amazing. I was also excited to see that Applegate now carries pre-cooked chicken. It just makes life so much easier. And pickles because who doesn’t love pickles?!
And that it pretty much what I have been up to lately! Have a great night!
