Gotta love getting in a good sweat before you start your week [emoji grinning face]
Ok back to my weekend – it was too my fun! I had a fun filled weekend with my three year old nephew JR. This was the first time in well over a year that
No surprise here….but my favorite thing from this weekend was spending time with J.R, Stef, and Robbie in Chicago. I love being able to show visitors around to my favorite Chicago spots. Here are some pictures to sum up all of our adventures…
We share our LOVE [emoji heart] for Yogurtland
I wish JR was with me all the time so I could have an excuse to go into a firehouse and look at the
Please note JR’s toddler and tiara pose…boy knows how to work it
Looking at animals while chowing on popcorn, swigging on some Gatorade, and getting pushed in a stroller. JR knows how to work the system.
I had been to Sweat on State for a Sweatworking event, but this was my first time taking one of their normal classes. I went with the 9 a.m. Sweat Class on Saturday.
We started off with a 400m run or row. Then we split up into teams of 4 or 5 and completed five circuits of five 1-minute exercises (row, burpees with box jump, kettle bell swings, knees to elbow, and ball slams). We finished off with a sweat-down ab circuit – flutter kicks and side plank hip dips.
I am always amazed by how good (sweaty) of a workout you can get in with circuit training. Even though the circuit only consisted of 30 minutes I am still sore.
I love being sore, especially two days after a workout. I really enjoyed this class and will definitely consider doing another one this month!
My beloved Tiger’s were swept by the Baltimore Orioles in the first round of the playoffs. I love nothing more than post-season baseball, and am sad I won’t have the Tiger’s to cheer on. But many agree that the Tiger’s losing is best for my dad’s health. He gets way way way way too much into the games and I don’t think his heart could take anymore. Now heres to the Lions….we know they will find away to disappoint us in someway.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great Monday! I will be back tomorrow with more pumpkin treats [emoji face with stuck-out tongue]
- What was a high from your weekend? What was a low?
- Did you try out a new workout this weekend?
P.S. If I were able to pick another high it would be that ND beat Stanford in a down to the last minute game. 5-0 Baby! Go Irish!
P.P.S. Congrats to Susie rocking the Twin City Marathon yesterday!
